Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

I have been experiencing lower abdominal pain for the past three days. I've tried over-the-counter medications, but they haven't provided any relief. The pain is constant and doesn't seem to be getting better. It's worrying me, and I'm not sure what to do next.


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

Lower abdominal pain can stem from various underlying causes, and its persistence despite over-the-counter remedies warrants a closer look. The fact that the pain has been constant for three days indicates a need for further evaluation.


When assessing lower abdominal pain, we consider several factors, including the individual's gender and any associated symptoms. Understanding the precise location of the pain and any additional symptoms you may be experiencing is crucial in determining the potential cause.


In some cases, complementary diagnostic tests such as laboratory investigations and radiological studies may be necessary to gain a comprehensive understanding of your condition. These tests can provide valuable insights into any underlying issues contributing to your discomfort.


It's important not to ignore persistent abdominal pain, as it could signify a more serious underlying condition that requires medical attention. By addressing your concerns proactively, we can work together to identify the cause of your symptoms and develop an appropriate treatment plan.


If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out. Wishing you a swift recovery and relief from your discomfort.
