Abdominal Pain Overview
Abdominal pain can be caused by hundreds of disorders, ranging from mild to life-threatening. The pain may be coming from the gastrointestinal system (stomach, intestines), urinary system, reproductive organs, biliary system, and other organs. Common causes of gastrointestinal pain include gastroenteritis, such as an infectious gastroenteritis, along with the much-feared but less common condition of appendicitis. Uncommon but life-threatening causes include abdominal aortic aneurysm and acute appendicitis, amongst many other serious disorders.
