Location of abdominal pain 

Abdominal pain is felt in the abdominal region. The pain is not always necessarily in
the stomach, it may also arise from the tissues of the abdominal wall such as the skin and the abdominal muscles. The pain may also originate from the organs within the abdominal cavity or close to it such as the stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, gallbladder, spleen, and pancreas.


Causes of abdominal pain

The pain is usually caused from the inflammation of the stretching or distention of an"abdominal pain"'stomach ache causes""abdominal pain causes""causes of abdominal pain""stomach pains" organ. The pain that comes on suddenly, can suggest a sudden trauma to the abdominal area. This may be caused by the interruption of the blood supply to the colon or obstruction of the bile duct by gallstones.  Pain in the lower right abdomen in the appendix is appendicitis. Pain in the lower left abdomen where most colonic diverticuli are  located is diverticulitis. The cramp-like pain may suggests strong contraction of the intestines. Constant pain in the upper abdominal region that last between 30 minutes to several hours, may suggest obstruction of the bile ducts by gallstones. 

Pancreatitis will typically cause severe, steady pain in the upper abdomen and upper back. This pain may last one or more days. Other causes may include food
intolerance, hernia, gallbladder disease, kidney stones, constipation or a bladder infection.
Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix. It can occur in %7 to %12 of the worlds population peaking between the age of 11 and 19 and males being more affected than female. The obstruction of the lumen by a fecalith, foreign bodies, tumor of the cecum or the appendix are the common cause of the appendicitis. This obstruction may result in distention, accumulation of bacteria, which can lead to gangrene and perforation. 
In  women it may be caused by menstrual cramps, last menstrual period, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, vaginal discharge, abnormal vaginal bleeding, the possibility of pregnancy, dyspareunia and pelvic inflammatory disease.

The duration of abdominal pain

The pain of acid-related disease such as gastroesophageal reflux disease or duodenal ulcers may last a period of weeks or months during which the pain is
worse followed by a period of weeks or months during which the pain is better. Biliary colic lasts no more than several hours and pancreatitis may last one or more days.
