Upper Stomach Pains:
Causes and Relief

Are you suffering from upper stomach pains?

Let me first say that I am not a medical doctor nor do I claim to be one.

This article is a summary of my research and findings on the subject.

If you are worried about your condition, please contact your doctor immediately, because I am not a doctor, so treat this information as information only.

There are many conditions or ailments that have upper stomach pains as a symptom.

The pain can also be located to the right, left or center, which can mean different things.

In this article we'll explore the general symptom of feeling pain in the upper area of your abdomen.

This doesn't mean that it is the abdomen that is ill, it can be nearby organs as well, since they are usually very close to our digestive tract.

Organs close to the abdomen are, the stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, gallbladder and pancreas.

It is also possible for pain to be felt outside the abdomen, even if organs near the abdomen are affected.

It can be extremely hard to pinpoint what the problem is. If you've suffered from these pains for more than a few hours, especially if they are intense, you should see your doctor and let him look at you.


As I said above, there can be many causes of your stomach pain. It can be caused by an inflammation, stretching or distention of one of your organs or a loss of blood supply to an organ.

It can also be caused by reasons that aren't related to inflammation or any of those related causes. An example of this would be irritable bowel syndrome, a disorder which can cause abdominal pain.

It is almost impossible to pinpoint why you have these pains or how you can get relief by just reading about it, there are too many factors that come into play.


If you go to a doctor, he or she will determine the cause of your pain by:

  • Determining what kind of pain it is
  • Examining your body
  • Go through tests
  • Ask you questions

Before you go to the doctor, think about how and where your pain started. Good questions to ask yourself are:

  • Does it interrupt your sleep?
  • Do you suffer from any other symptoms? (like diarrhea, bleeding etc...)
  • Has it moved?
  • Is the pain constant?
  • When do you get relief, if ever?
  • When does it get worse?
  • Where is the pain located?

If this doesn't go away quickly, get in contact with your local doctor!

Stay safe!
