Lower abdominal pain is mild or severe pain that occurs at or below the belly button, mostly near the reproductive organs or bladder.

Consuming excess amounts of food with increased fat content, stress, and even swallowing excess air can all be possible causes of lower abdominal pain.

There are a number of intestinal and stomach-related issues that could cause abdominal pain—with fever and vomiting–including:

  • Diverticulitis
  • Gastroparesis
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Intestinal obstruction
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

While these are some common causes of abdominal pain with fever and vomiting, there may be other factors that could be causing you to experience these symptoms.

Diagnosing abdominal pain with fever and vomiting

If you are experiencing lower abdominal pain with fever and vomiting, seeking medical guidance from a gastrointestinal specialist may be the best option. They will be able to perform a series of tests that could identify the cause of the pain and help with alleviating the pain.

Your gastrointestinal specialist may conduct an abdominal or pelvic examination to narrow the exact location of the pain. They may also inquire about your medical history and conduct a physical examination and further tests to obtain the necessary information to arrive at a diagnosis.

Other non-invasive tests like ultrasound and surgical procedures such as a diagnostic laparoscopy could also be required to get a diagnosis if other tests turn up inconclusive results.

Treating abdominal pain with fever and vomiting

Once your physician has diagnosed your condition, they may create a personalised treatment plan for you.

While most of the causes for these symptoms are temporary and you may not require complex treatments other than some over-the-counter (OTC) pain killers, if the root cause of the pain is of a severe nature, your doctor may suggest alternative treatments depending on the condition.

Here are some conditions that may cause sharp lower abdominal pain and the treatment you may be administered;

  • Intestinal blockage: Bowel rest, intravenous fluids, nasogastric tube, and maybe surgery
  • Colitis, PID, or bacterial gastroenteritis: Antibiotics
  • Ruptured appendix: Surgery

Abdominal pain with fever and vomiting may also be caused by certain food items. Here’s a list of food items that you should consider avoiding if you’re experiencing abdominal pain:

  • Lentils
  • Turnips
  • Cabbage
  • High-fat foods
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Carbonated beverages
  • Dairy products (if you’re lactose intolerant)

If you are experiencing lower abdominal pain then seeking medical advice from a qualified and experienced gastrointestinal specialist could be the best decision you can make for your health.
