Back and Stomach Pain

I advise you that don’t take back and stomach pain lightly. Your abdomen houses a lot of vital organs; pain is the first emergency signal your body emits if something’s amiss. Whether it’s a dull back and stomach pain, or a sharp, piercing pain you should consider each case carefully.

So when do you need to seek medical help if you are experiencing back and stomach pain? If:

1) The pain is severe, recurring or getting worse
2) The pain is accompanied by shortness of breath, dizziness, bleeding, vomiting or fever
3) The pain is sudden and sharp
4) The pain radiates to other parts of your body You vomit blood or you find blood in your stool or your stool turns black Your abdomen is swollen and tender

All the listings above signify a serious abdominal condition. Most conditions are fatal if not treated immediately. Be sure to be explicit in describing the pain. The spot where it hurts, what kind of pain its like and what happened prior to the pain. A cool and collective physical introspection is very critical in situations like this. It can save you useless trips to the doctor or risk your life because you failed to take notice of a fatal disorder.

Serious Back and Stomach Pain Situations

Appendicitis is a common cause for emergency abdominal surgery in the United States. Telltale signs of a bursting appendix can be determine by pressing the abdomen gently. Immediately call your physician if you develop a back and stomach pain showing symptoms of appendicitis.

Kidney Stones
One common cause for back and stomach pain is kidney stones. These stones form due to heavy concentrations of certain substances in the urine. Pain is usually severe and fatal. If left untreated, it will result to kidney failure. If your family has history for kidney stones, you should keep a close watch on this condition.

Acute Cholecystitis
Acute cholecystitis is a gallbladder inflammation that causes severe back and stomach pain. In most cases it is cause by a presence of gallstones in the gallbladder, obstructing the duct from the gallbladder to the intestine. Physical examination can be determined by touching the abdomen if it reveals tenderness.

Intestinal Obstruction
This condition involves a blockage of the bowel that results in a failed bowel movement. Symptoms include bloated abdomen, back and stomach pain, vomiting (especially if the vomit is bowel smelling), severe constipation and diarrhea.

There are several back and stomach pain conditions and identifying the critical ones should be easy, as long as you take a minute to identify the cause, the affected spot, and the intensity of the pain.
