  • What are the common causes of abdominal pain?
    Abdominal pain can arise from various factors, including indigestion, gas, infections like gastroenteritis or urinary tract infections (UTIs), and conditions such as appendicitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or gallstones. Additionally, menstrual cramps, injury or trauma to the abdominal area, kidney stones, and even serious conditions like abdominal aortic aneurysm or cancer can also lead to abdominal discomfort.
  • How can I differentiate between abdominal pain and symptoms of a heart attack?
    Abdominal pain typically manifests as discomfort or distress in the region between the chest and pelvis, often accompanied by symptoms such as cramping, bloating, or sharp pain. On the other hand, a heart attack usually presents as chest pain or discomfort, which may radiate to the arms, neck, jaw, or back, along with symptoms like shortness of breath, sweating, nausea, and a feeling of impending doom. While abdominal pain may sometimes resemble indigestion, especially in women, it’s crucial to seek immediate medical attention if there’s suspicion of a heart attack, as symptoms can vary.
  • What diagnostic procedures are performed for abdominal pain at SwiftStar Emergency?
    At SwiftStar Emergency, the diagnostic process for abdominal pain begins with a thorough assessment of symptoms and a detailed physical examination, including gentle palpation to pinpoint the source of discomfort. Additional evaluations such as blood tests, urinalysis, ultrasound, and potentially a CT scan may be ordered based on the initial assessment. These diagnostic tools help our team swiftly identify the underlying cause of abdominal pain and tailor treatment accordingly.
  • What treatment options are available for abdominal pain at SwiftStar Emergency?
    Treatment for abdominal pain at SwiftStar Emergency may include medications to alleviate pain and inflammation, manage infections, regulate bowel movements, or control stomach acid production. In cases where a serious underlying issue such as appendicitis or a hernia is identified, surgical intervention may be necessary. Our skilled team of board-certified physicians and experienced staff are dedicated to providing prompt and appropriate care for acute or chronic abdominal pain across all age groups.
