Stomach and Abdominal Pain – Dr Wilie Ong Health Blog #39


In this video, I will talk about Abdominal
Pain or Stomach Pain If you have any pain or vague discomfort in
the abdomen, this could mean an abdominal problem. It is not that easy to find the cause of the
pain, but I will give you a guide. First we have to check on the history:
Where is the pain located? When did the pain start? What kind of pain are you feeling? Is it a squeezing pain?
Is it on and off like a spasm? Or is it a continuous pain?
Do you diarrhea or any past operations in the abdomen?
All these questions will help the doctor find the cause. In this table, I will give you some clues
on the possible causes: If the pain is on and off, then it could be
a benign colic. If there is diarrhea, then it could be acute
gastroenteritis If the pain is in the center and you feel
it’s acidic and frequently missed your meals. Consider gastritis or an ulcer.
If the pain is on the right upper side, and if it occurs after eating fatty or oily foods,
then consider a gallbladder inflammation or gallbladder stones. Overweight people in their
forties are more prone to develop gallbladder stones. If the pain is in the right lower side, then consider appendicitis, which is a medical
emergency. For ladies with pain in the lower abdomen,
you should see an OB-gynecologist for various possibilities. As always, it’s still best to see your doctor,
a gastroenterologist or a surgeon. Especially if the pain is severe.
I hope my tips have given you some guide. Take care.

  4. I had delayed meals and I was diagnosed with gastritis.. Today, I still had delayed meals, kasi late nagigising, baka babalik-balik ang atake ng gastritis. I throw up sometimes.
