Before resorting to any painkillers for abdominal pain, it is necessary to be aware of where the cause lies. There is a way to determine for yourself which organ is the problem based on where your abdominal pain is located.

• Stomach - pain in central upper abdomen. This could indicate gastritis, but it could also be a symptom of a heart attack (especially if you also have pain in your right arm) or appendicitis.

• Liver and gall - pain in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen. If they are accompanied by nausea and pain in the right shoulder, it is probably inflammation or gallstones. Dull pain accompanied by loss of appetite may indicate biliary dyskinesia (bending), exacerbation of hepatitis or cirrhosis.

• Kidneys - pain in the right or left side at waist level. It can be caused by kidney stones, ureteral stones or inflammation. Sometimes it can be a sign of inflammation of the ovaries, osteochondrosis or appendicitis.

• Pancreas - pain in left upper quadrant. Probably due to pancreatitis. It can also occur from a bleeding stomach or duodenal ulcer.

• Gut - pain in the middle of the abdomen. It often happens after overeating, but it can also indicate thyroid problems.

• Appendix - pain in the right part of the abdomen, below the navel. It could be due to an inflamed appendix or a viral infection.

• The uterus - pain in the lower abdomen, resembling a stretching of the tissues. It can be the result of inflammation, cystitis, endometriosis and ectopic pregnancy. But sometimes it can just be constipation.
