My husband and I like seafood. We often travel and try the local cuisine. At home in the Philippines, we tried the sea ducks. Everything was fine until her husband felt uncomfortable in the stomach. The next day we went to the doctor, the doctor diagnosed gastritis. Below I will talk about the types of discomfort in the stomach.


Abdominal discomfort is discomfort that a person feels anywhere between the lower chest to the distal groin. Some health care professionals include the diaphragm, pelvis (and genitals) and the retroperitoneal space. .


Abdominal discomfort is common, and a person can help their doctor diagnose the source of abdominal discomfort  by simply focusing on the location, type, and intensity of discomfort. Moreover, there are a variety of the reasons why some causes of abdominal discomfort are often difficult to diagnose initially.

Type of discomfort

The type of discomfort may also give some clues as to the cause of abdominal discomfort. Unfortunately, sometimes the discomfort is diffuse; this can complicate the diagnosis. However, there are some types of discomfort that can help narrow the diagnosis.

There are several types of discomfort:

sharp,
dull,
stabbing,
tearing,
cramps,
twisting,
pressure, and
bloating.
Some individuals may describe many other types of discomfort. The type of discomfort may be further described as:

constant,
intermittent,
variable, and
modified by movement, eating, bowel movements, walking, or
changed by other situations like stress or certain medications.
