What is the Medical Treatment for Causes of Abdominal Pain in Adults?
Patient Comments Read 37 Comments
The patient's treatment will depend on what the doctor thinks is causing the abdominal pain.
The patient may be given IV (intravenous) fluids. The doctor may ask the patient not to eat or drink anything until the cause of the pain is known. This is done to avoid worsening certain medical conditions (for example adding food to the stomach if there is a ruptured ulcer) or to prepare the patient in case they need to have surgery. (An empty stomach is better when general anesthesia is needed.)
The patient may be given pain medication.
