Gastric problems are a common problem faced by everyone at some time or the other. Some problems may be of a minor nature while others may involve a lot of pain and require treatment. The term gastric pain is usually used to describe any kind of discomfort in the stomach or other organs in the upper abdomen. This is the area that starts below the rib cage and extends up to the navel. The organs situated in the upper abdomen include the esophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas and gall bladder. Any disorders associated with any of these organs can cause gastric pain.
In both adults and children, gastric pain may be accompanied by stomach bloating heartburn and even headaches. Gastric pain is also a common occurrence during pregnancy. This usually occurs due to the pressure exerted by the growing uterus exerts against the digestive organs. It causes the stomach and other organs to be pushed up against the diaphragm resulting in gastric reflux and pain.
At times, gastric pain may also be caused by conditions elsewhere in the body such as the lungs or the ovaries. At other times, conditions affecting organs within the abdomen may be felt in other areas of the body such as the back pain caused by pancreatitis
Gastric pain can be felt anywhere in the upper abdominal region. While in most cases it may be nothing more than a simple matter of indigestion, acidity or heartburn, in many cases it could signify something more serious that would require immediate medical attention. The severity of the pain by no means indicates the seriousness of the condition. Even minor causes such as stomach bloating or distension can result in severe pain. However, even mild pain may be an indication of a serious condition such as appendicitis or even cancer. For this reason it is important to consult your doctor especially in cases where the pain persists for a long time.
The type of pain you experience will help your doctor make a diagnosis of the underlying cause. Generalized pain usually occurs in cases of indigestion, gas or a viral infection. Severe generalized pain may be indicative of a blockage of the intestine. Localized pain on the other hand may be symptomatic of a problem with any of the organs in the abdominal region. Pain that comes in waves, somewhat akin to colic, that is severe and starts and ends in a sudden manner may be caused by gallstones or kidney stones. Cramping pain may be a sign of a bacterial infection in the stomach.
