Abdominal Pain In Queens, NY

What Is Causing Your Abdominal Discomfort?

Stomach Ache PhotoAbdominal pain can be hard to bear, especially if you have no idea what is causing it. At New York Gastroenterology & Endoscopy, our team has nearly a decade of gastroenterology experience helping individuals recover from stomach pain. Not only can we determine the cause of your bowel discomfort, but we can also create a customized treatment plan to help you feel better fast.

Acute or chronic abdominal pain can result from a large variety of causes that can affect the stomach, appendix, gallbladder, spleen, bowel, or liver. Often times, the pain may be radiating to other areas such as the organs close to the abdomen. Seeing a gastroenterologist for an examination is imperative to further understanding the cause of your pain.

Common causes of abdominal discomfort can include:

Gastroesophageal Acid Reflux Disease (GERD)

GERD is a digestive disorder in which the contents of the stomach leak backwards into the esophagus, causing heartburn, regurgitation, and nausea.

Helicobacter Pylori Infection (H. pylori bacteria)

This common infection usually happens during childhood when the H. pylori bacteria infects your stomach. Most people don’t realize they have an infection because they never get sick. An H. Pylori infection is a common cause of peptic ulcers.

Nerve Irritation

When something irritates the Sciatic nerve, it can cause pain that radiates out from the lower back to the calf. Sometimes, it can cause abdominal or stomach pain as well.


While symptoms of minor injuries to the abdomen usually improve within a few minutes, pain and other symptoms that continue, increase, or develop after an injury may be a sign of organ damage.


A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. Hernias are most common in the abdomen where the intestines may break through a weakened area in the abdominal wall.

Peptic Ulcer Disease (PUD)

Also known as a stomach ulcer, peptic ulcer disease refers to painful sores in the lining of the stomach or the duodenum that cause a gnawing or burning pain in the middle or upper stomach, bloating, heartburn, nausea or vomiting.


Though esophagitis is an irritation or inflammation of the esophagus, it can be brought on by GERD and cause abdominal pain.


Gastritis is an inflammation, irritation, or erosion of the stomach lining. Most common causes include excessive alcohol use, chronic vomiting, stress, certain medications, Helicobacter pylori, bile reflux, or a bacterial/viral infection.


An inflammation in the pancreas, a large gland behind the stomach and next to the small intestine, can cause severe abdominal pain that radiates into the back.


Cholecystitis is an inflammation of the gallbladder, a small organ near the liver. If the flow of bile that passes out of the gallbladder and into the small intestine is blocked, it builds up inside the gallbladder and causes swelling, pain, and infection.
