Abdominal Pain Syndrome
Abdominal Pain Syndrome Treatment
If you are experiencing any kind of abdominal pain, it can make for an unpleasant experience. However, when this type of pain reoccurs, it is important to seek a diagnosis in order to determine the source of the problem. Abdominal pain syndrome is a relatively uncommon condition that could provide a potential explanation for frequent pain in the abdomen. Centrally mediated abdominal pain syndrome (CAPS) does not present with changes to bowel movements or coincide with normally associated health conditions.
The condition is neither associated with X-ray or laboratory results that show abnormality. Treatment for abdominal pain syndrome is often multidisciplinary, as the condition is caused by the way in which nerve signals in the abdomen transmit to the brain. In many cases, the condition is related to emotional trauma associations rather than injury or disease. In other cases, there are underlying physical causes such as previous infections or the result of abdominal surgeries.
