When Does Abdominal Pain Require a Visit to the ER?
When it is clear your stomach pain is not mild or moderate and symptoms aren’t going away or keep coming back, we recommend getting in touch with our team as soon as possible. If your abdominal pain was due to an accident or caused severe trauma to your stomach, call 911 or visit the nearest ER immediately. It’s also very common for patients to wonder they may have appendicitis, so if you have not had your appendix removed this may be a possibility.
In other cases, if you experience any of the following symptoms, it is best to go to an ER:
- High fever (101 or higher)
- Frequent vomiting
- Blood in stool
- Shortness of breath
- Feeling pain during pregnancy or breastfeeding
- Yellowing of skin or eyes
Different Types of Abdominal Pain
Mild to moderate abdominal pain generally goes away within the same day and most causes are from bloating, constipation, food poisoning, and indigestion. When stomach pain is severe this can be an indication of a much more serious emergency.
Some warning signs of serious abdominal pain may include:
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Kidney stones
- Stomach Ulcers
