Abdominal Pain in Adults (cont.)

Abdominal Pain in Adults Causes
Many acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) diseases cause abdominal pain.
Abdominal pain may not arise from the abdomen.
From the above it is apparent that abdominal pain can have many causes, some linked directly to the abdomen and others caused by non-abdominal disease. Sometime the cause of abdominal pain is not found by the patient's health care professional during the initial evaluation. In some cases, no specific cause is determined, and the pain gets better in hours or days.
