Lower Abdominal Pain

  • The area between the chest and the pelvis is considered the abdomen where several vital organs such as the intestines and liver present in the stomach are involved in the process of digestion.

  • Other important organs such as the pancreas, gallbladder, kidneys, spleen, and colon are also present in the abdomen.

  • Lower abdominal pain may be caused due to several factors such as menstrual cramps, intestinal blockage, kidney stones, etc.

  • Abdominal pain is very common and may be caused due to the surrounding organs.

  • Pain associated with bloating of the stomach may be a result of gas build-up and even indicate other abnormalities.

  • The pain may be temporary or can even last for several hours.

  • Since the lower abdomen consists of the bladder and reproductive organs, it is quite difficult to find the exact cause.
