You’ve Got a Pain in the Abdomen? This Picture Is Going To Reveal What Exactly The Problem Is!
How many times have you experienced a pain in the abdominal area, and you kept asking people around you “what’s positioned here?” is it the appendix, the gallbladder, the spleen, or is it simply gases? You don’t have to worry about it anymore, because thanks to this picture you will always know what exactly hurts you – and if it’s the time to visit your doctor.
Is your pain connected to overeating, an ulcer, hernia or the appendix? The exact place on your abdominal area where you feel the pain can tell you what the problem is.
Even though the first thing that comes to your mind every time you feel pain in the lower part of your abdomen is appendix inflammation, very often the causer of the pain is the colon. Some of the inflammatory diseases or appendix inflammations are the ulcer colitis and the Crohn’s disease, both quite complex diseases.
Diverticulitis is a term you probably meet pretty rarely, and it refers to expansions of the red mucous membrane that happen in the colon and can cause severe pain, especially in the left part of the abdomen.
In order to avoid guessing whether the cause of the pain is a superabundant meal or something more serious, just take a look at the picture and it’ll give you the answer.
If the pain has emerged once or twice, there’s no need to worry. Still, if the pain repeats often and it is really strong so you feel it throughout the whole day, it would be for the best to go and see your doctor. Most of these diseases can be successfully treated if you start treating them in their earlier stages.
-The spot of the pain isn’t necessarily the spot of the pathological process. Even if you feel the pain at one spot, the cause of it can be placed at a different one – says Radmila Shehic, a doctor at the City Center for Crisis Intervention.
-The stomach is placed under the thorax. Under the stomach, a little above the umbilicus is the duodenum. Right under the right ribs’ arch on the inner side towards the umbilicus is the gallbladder, and you can recognize the pain in the gallbladder because it is more intense when you touch it. If you feel some kind of pain in the waist area, it’s possible that you have problems with the pancreas. If the pain is projected in the form of an arch – from the right side, through the middle part towards the left side of the abdomen, we usually think it’s the colon. The pain or pressure in this area could be the result of stress, malnutrition, or problems with the bowel movement. If you feel a pain in the right crotch area, and the pain becomes more intense when you touch this spot or when you lift your right leg, it’s probably the appendix. Pain in the small hipbone area, above the pubic bone, under the umbilicus is a sign of problems with the bladder. In women, it can be a sign of problems with the ovaries, and in men, it can indicate prostate problems – Dr. Radmila Shehic explained.
