Feeling sudden pain in the tummy? Read carefully to know the common causes.

The common causes of sudden pain felt all over the tummy but mainly around the navel are:
1. Excessive eating of heavy or unusual food.
2. Presence of round worms or similar worms in the intestines.
3. Suffering from chronic constipation, diarrhea or excessive flatus due to " Irritable Colon".
4. In young women it could be because of monthly periods (menstrual cycle).

If you experience severe pain in the tummy for the first time in your life , never try self medication. Such severe pain may need medical or surgical emergency. You must call for a doctor. A hot water bag may be used and a tablet of Baralgan may be taken till the doctor examines you. Please do not take any laxative or draw a conclusion as constipation as a cause of such pain in the tummy.

If any urine or stool is passed or you experience vomiting after any sudden pain in the tummy, please check carefully for presence of blood or any other matter, and report the same to the doctor.

After any sudden pain the tummy, if marked swelling and distention of the tummy develops and the child or patient does not allow you to touch the portion where pain is there, or you notice the tummy becomes rigid or hard or excessive sweating of the whole body and /or vomiting immediate hospitalization of the patient is recommended.

If any pregnant lady develops severe abdominal pain, she should be taken immediately to the nearest hospital or Nursing Home instead of waiting for the doctor to arrive.
In case any person with known Hernia develops sudden severe pan in the tummy, the person should be taken to the nearest hospital without any delay.

Often people diagnose the pain in tummy as acidity in the first place. Do not arrive at a conclusion that the pain could be related to Gas. Gas pains should be diagnosed as a last resort after the doctor cannot find any other cause and stool examination and X-rays of the tummy are normal.

Passing stool or gas per rectum or belching is a good sign and is against any "Surgical Emergency". But absence of bowel movement, inability to pass gas per rectum and inability to give a good belch are normally, the more possible reasons for Surgical Emergency.

In case you experience repeated attacks of pain in the tummy over few weeks or months are more or less due to the same causes, there is no emergency for operation and extensive investigations are required to make a proper diagnosis.

Please note that with the sudden pain in the tummy, you are also experiencing vomiting, sweating and developed a sore and hard tummy then there is a need of surgical emergency especially:
- If the patient is a small child; the pain is in the right lower tummy i.e. in the area of appendix).
- If you get a sudden pain and are a known case of ulcer.
- If you are pregnant and the pain is more in the lower tummy.

You should not eat or drink anything. Just rush to the nearest surgical nursing home or hospital . You may require an urgent operation.
