CALL FOR ABSTRACT 12THGHUCG TRACK: ABDOMINAL & PRIMARY CARE
Abdominal pain is a prevalent complaint in the outpatient setting. Many acute and chronic aetiologies can be evaluated outside of the hospital. Nonetheless, due to the associated morbidity and mortality, a number of causes of abdominal pain require prompt, focused, and structured evaluation. The differential diagnosis of a patient with acute abdominal pain is extensive, requiring the physician to comprehend not only the pathophysiology underlying the pain, but also the clinical presentation, course, and initial management of more dangerous causes. With a focused history, physical examination, and supplemental testing strategy, patients with concerning presentations can be identified, initially managed, and referred appropriately for continued care.
What are the causes of abdominal pain?
There are many potential causes of abdominal discomfort. Inflammation or interruption of an organ’s blood supply causes abdominal pain (for example, ischemic colitis). To further complicate matters, abdominal pain can occur without inflammation, distention, or loss of blood supply for unknown reasons. Irritable bowel syndrome is a notable example of this type of discomfort (IBS). These latter types of pain are frequently referred to as functional pain because no identifiable (visible) causes have been identified.
Symptoms of abdominal pain include:
- Trouble in the chest
- Pelvic discontentment
Diagnostic – Pain’s Characteristics
How severe is your stomach pain? The information gleaned from a patient’s medical history is crucial for determining the cause of stomach pain. This consists of the onset, location, pattern, and duration of the pain. It also includes factors that exacerbate the pain and those that alleviate it. Fever, diarrhoea, and bleeding are examples of signs and symptoms that may be present.

The Characteristics of Pain – How the Pain Begins
When do you experience abdominal pain? Always? Is it more prevalent in the morning or the evening? How long does your pain last whenever it returns? Does it occur after consuming specific foods or alcohol? After-meal abdominal discomfort may be caused by indigestion. Is there pain associated with menstruation? These are typical questions your physician may ask to help determine the cause. For instance, sudden abdominal pain may indicate a sudden event such as a disruption in the blood supply to the colon (ischemia) or a blockage of the bile duct by a gallstone (biliary colic).
