So sorry to hear about your concerns. Unfortunately, abdominal pain
can be quite common for some people, and there are many different reasons or causes for it, which is why the best thing to do is to be evaluated by an OB/GYN surgeon
. Most of them require an evaluation from a doctor
, and sometimes time itself is one of the best things that helps a doctor to diagnose what is causing the problem. Many of the questions that your doctor may ask might involve what seems to make the pain better or worse, and if the pain seems in any way related to your menstrual cycle. Additionally, if anyone else in your family has had similar pain in the past. Some of these questions, among others, may give your doctor an idea about what could be causing your symptoms. Ultimately, however, you may need to see another physician. For many young women with abdominal pain, an OB/GYN surgeon is one of the best to evaluate this sort of problem because of their knowledge of the anatomy and their especial focus on women. Potential other causes include both GI problems as well as reproductive concerns (for example, irritable bowel syndrome or endometriosis, respectively). The best way to know is by visiting with your doctor and request a further evaluation if needed. Please speak with your doctor.
