Abdominal pain is a common problem caused by simple things, like poor digestion or constipation, and usually disappears without treatments.
The most recommended is to rest, avoid fatty or sugary foods, and drink plenty of water.
However, since the abdomen has many essential organs and nerve endings, many factors can cause pain in different areas of this body part.
Let's learn everything about upper abdominal pain, something important that needs to be treated immediately.
Sharp upper abdominal pain: excess gas
If you have a bothersome pain in the upper part of your stomach or abdomen and feel bloated, as if something was moving in your stomach, that means you have an excess of gas.
Pain in the lower part of the chest or in the upper abdominal area: heartburn
Acidity causes burning pain in the lower chest and upper abdomen. You may also feel a burning sensation in your throat and, sometimes, even an acid taste in your mouth.
Intense pain in the upper abdomen: ulcers
Ulcers can be one of the causes of acute pain in the upper abdomen and stomach. They appear when the stomach lining is damaged but can also be caused by potent analgesics.
As we always say, to avoid all these issues, keep a healthy diet and eat food that's rich in fiber, like fresh fruits and vegetables.
If you think you have any of these symptoms, talk to a doctor immediately so they can examine you and prescribe the best treatment for your case.
