Stomach Aches

Stomach aches are a common problem that often go ignored. Usually a stomach ache is simply a one-time occurrence, resulting from indigestion, gas, or from having ingested bad food. However, some stomach aches can be a sign of something more serious; Urgent Care LA can help you determine if your stomach ache is harmless or if it could be the sign of a more serious problem. Seek urgent care if your stomach ache is in conjunction with any of the following persistent symptoms:

  • Abdominal pain or discomfort
  • Nausea
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Heartburn
  • Blood in the stools

An urgent care doctor will ask you about your health history in order to determine if a serious digestive disorder is present. In addition, the urgent care doctors will ask you about your lifestyle and eating habits to determine the cause of your stomach aches. Stomach aches following consumption of dairy products, for example, might be the result of lactose intolerance, which can easily be treated with a chance in diet.

At Urgent Care LA, our doctors will evaluate and treat your stomach ache. The urgent care doctors will determine if a more serious problem should be addressed, or if your stomach ache is the result of something minor. The urgent care doctors will then tailor a treatment for your stomach aches.
