Thank you for being part of the AGE.FYI experience.

Abdominal Pain is discomfort in the trunk region that can range from mild cramping to severe pain. Abdominal pain requires emergency medical attention when pain is sudden, sharp and unrelenting. Or if the pain radiates in the shoulder or jaw.  If the abdomen is tense and tender to touch or if there is bloody vomiting or diarrhea, you should also seek medical attention.
Acute abdominal pain is common in older people because of the changes that occur in the billiary system.


When to worry:

Visit the Bathroom:
Often people who experience nausea or abdominal pain are simply in need of a bowel movement. Sit on the toilet for a few minutes while leaning forward with your knees drawn up to your chest. Don't force or strain because it can cause hemorrhoids.
