Abdominal pain can have many possible causes

Nearly everyone has had abdominal pain during their lifetime. Transient discomfort frequently can be attributed to diet, stress or medications. However, abdominal pain can be one of the most complex problems a patient can have. Understanding how to take a very detailed history and knowing what tests or treatment is best suited to solve the problem requires a great fund of knowledge. Gastroenterologists are the experts in evaluating this problem. Dr. Feinstein has helped thousands of patients in Southern California of all ages who have suffered from abdominal pain.  

Common causes of abdominal pain:

  • Acid reflux

  • H. pylori infection

  • Ulcer disease

  • Cancer of stomach, pancreas, small intestine, liver and colon

  • Bowel obstruction

  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth

  • Food intolerances (gluten, fructose, etc.)

  • Crohn’s disease

  • Ulcerative colitis

  • Diverticulitis

  • Pancreatitis

  • Gallstones

  • Vascular diseases

These are some of the more common causes for abdominal pain, but there are literally more than 100. Location, duration, fever, weight loss and timing of pain are only part of the problem.  It takes an excellent diagnostician like gastroenterologist Dr. Feinstein to help determine the cause of your pain.
