Continuous abdominal pain that eases with deep breathing, passing urine. Had got a severe blow in stomach. Cause?

Hi, today during a wrestling tournament I was hit in the stomach and the wind was knocked out of me. Although I thought it was jsut the wind being knocked out, several hours later my abdomen continues to hurt. Taking deep breaths is uncomfortable, as is peeing/pooping. What is wrong or is there anything i can do to alleviate the pain?

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Hit in the stomach then continuous pain especially on taking deep breath may be due to injury to soft tissue like muscle or internal organ. If muscle injury take rest and use analgesic, if internal injury have to investigate. Just keep checking your pulse rate and BP to avoid any major injury leading to internal bleeding and also your stool colour. Get done one USG abdomen and pelvis, drink plenty of fluids and can take antiinflammatory drug like Aceclofenac with serratiopeptidase. This may help you. Consult your doctor for examination and management.

Hello,

Thanks for posting on HCM,

From your description, there is a likely possibility that an internal abdominal organ has been injured. The possibilities are your liver, spleen, gallbladder and less likely your stomach or intestines. You will need to be examined by a doctor who can also run some abdominal scan/ultrasound to determine the actual cause of the stomach pain.
It would not be proper to just manage the pain without finding out the actual cause of the pain. A blow on the abdomen can result in severe stomach injury. A contusion without any internal organ damage is possible, but it is best if you were thoroughly examined first before pain management is initiated.

Hope this helps
