Thank you for taking your time to read this.

Hi and thanks for the query,
acute abdomen pain could range from benign condition to certainly more severe health conditions. Evaluatinmg this depends on a series of fcators. The appreciated intensity, duration, mode of onset, irradiation and accompanying signs as symptoms. A cinical evaluation by a clinician is a very crucial stage. Other tests if needed like anm abdominal ultrasound could be very useful too, Blood tests and stool excams depending on the case could also be asked.
I suugest you meef your family physician or gastroenterologist fr a proper medical evaluation and management.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
