  1. Hi,Welcome to MEDIMETRY

    Stomach pain can be caused by many causes.Let me brief you few importantant causes that is more commonly associated with your age,Sex

    1 STRESS

    Stress can cause headaches, high blood pressure, insomnia and, yes, tummy trouble.Depression may  cause  stomach aches but constant abdominal pain may just as easily lead to depression and anxiety. (Feeling Stressed? Why You May Feel It in Your Gut)


    2 MEDICATION SIDE EFFECTS


    No drug is without side effects and sometimes that includes abdominal pain. 

    Oral bisphosphonates,Pain medications known as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen and aspirin can  cause swelling in the stomach lining and may even lead to ulcers


    3 ULCER

    Peptic ulcer disease, or ulcers in the stomach and duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), is a common source of abdominal painPain usually strikes the mid-upper abdominal area and sometimes occurs after meals. People with duodenal ulcers can wake in the middle of the night due to pain. 

    NSAID medications and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria are major causes. Antibiotics and acid-suppressing drugs are often used to treat ulcers caused by bacteria.


    4 FOOD POISONING

    Food poisoning from viruses or bacteria can cause abdominal pain, along with diarrhea and vomiting. In rare cases, food poisoning can be serious or fatal. In general, the symptoms from food poisoning usually last about 1-2 days

    However if you have viral gastroenteritis, a stomach bug from food or another person, it may last a bit longer.



    5 GERD

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD aka HEART BURN can cause pain in the upper stomach and lower chest. 

    GERD is a valve that separates the stomach from the esophagus is weak, allowing food and acid from the stomach to splash upwards.

    Eating too much food or the wrong type of food (fatty, for instance) can make it worse. Losing weight, watching what you eat, and medication like antacids, H2 blockers, and proton pump inhibitors, can also help.


    6 APPENDICITIS

    Most people who have appendicitis, an inflammation of the appendix.Appendicitis is more common in children and young adults (though it can happen to older adults) and usually starts with pain in the mid-abdomen, progressing into the lower right part of the abdomen. 

    If the appendix isn’t removed, it can burst, leading to potentially life-threatening peritonitis


    7 PANCREATITIS

    Inflammation of the pancreas can cause burning pain in the upper or middle abdomen. Some people even have shooting pain that drives right through to their back

    You may lean forward or lie on your back to try to relieve the pain, which may subside into a dull ache, nausea, and vomiting

     Main causes of pancreatitis are too much alcohol, Gallstones (the gallbladder and pancreas deliver their digestive juices into the intestine via the same duct). It often requires hospitalization.
