I suggest setting up an appointment with your primary care doctor
to get this checked out. Severe abdominal pain is a symptom that needs to be investigated. This is especially true if you have any additional concerning symptoms, such as weight loss, blood in your bowel movements or a black color to your bowel movements, nausea and vomiting, joint pain, rash, and the like.
There are several gastrointestinal conditions which could be causing your symptoms. Some of these are as simple as constipation or periodic infections of the stomach or gastrointestinal tract by viruses or bacteria.
Other chronic problems that often go undiagnosed include celiac disease, which is an inflammatory condition that is triggered by an allergy to gluten and similar proteins in wheat and a few other grains. It usually clears up when you adopt a gluten free diet. Inflammatory bowel disease
is another condition which is common, and results from an autoimmune inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, causing pain, bleeding, and weight loss. It requires diagnosis by a gastroenterologist
, usually with an endoscopic look at the intestines.
Start by talking to your primary care doctor. They will help you determine if further testing, bloodwork, or specialists are needed.
