i have pain in the lower abdomen that lasts for more than 30min.

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel in your abdomen. The lower margin of the ribs and the diaphragm from above, the pubic ramus or pelvic bone below, and the flanks on either side surround this anatomical area. The term abdominal pain is used to refer to pain that originates from the organs that are there within the abdominal cavity. These organs are the colon, liver, gall bladder, small intestine, stomach and pancreas. Pain in the abdomen could also originate from the tissues of the wall that encircles the abdominal cavity. This includes the abdominal wall muscles and the skin.

Sometimes pain in the abdomen could be due to organs that are near but not inside the abdominal cavity such as the kidneys the lower lungs, the ovaries and the uterus. This stomach pain is known as referred pain as even though it originates outside the stomach it is felt in the abdomen.

Lower abdomen muscle pain is generally felt on the left lower abdomen or on the right lower abdomen. It usually stems from a muscle in the abdomen getting strained. Lower abdomen muscle pain may be felt when the Rectus abdominis muscle is damaged. This affects other muscles in the stomach areas as well.

Stomach pain or lower abdomen pain could also be just below your umbilicus or belly button in the mid line. Lower abdomen muscle pain is fairly common in women due to the presence of ovaries, tubes, and the womb in that part of the abdomen. These are in addition to other organs that men have. Abdominal pain may be caused by an organ in the chest such as the heart or the lungs.

Some causes of lower abdomen pain include appendicitis, cystitis or bladder infection, fibroids, lower ureteric stones, and constipation. Some other causes of pain include trapped gases or intestinal pain, bowel polyps, bowel cancer, celiac disease, and pelvic pain syndrome. It is important to understand the position of the different organs that lie in the various parts of the lower abdomen to figure out what could go wrong and cause lower abdomen muscle pain.

Pain on the right lower abdomen could be caused by severe anxiety. Problems such as infection, tumors or cancers, injury, retention of wind, and twisting could cause you pain. Sometimes pain could be caused by appendicitis, kidney stones in bladder, and ovarian cyst.

If the pain persists in spite of trying different remedies and you continue to have health concerns it is best that you consult your doctor.

Lower abdominal pain can be a result of many factors. Some could be as simple as chronic constipation, gas, heartburn, or indigestion. Other causes include stomach flu, hernia, kidney stones, cancer, parasitic infections, food poisoning, and appendicitis. While most of the above causes need to be diagnosed and treated by a medical practitioner, temporary relief can be obtained using some simple remedies.

Drinking warm water with a twist of lemon can help ease the discomfort. A variety of herbal teas like fennel, dill, coriander, and chamomile can help the pain to abate. This tea can be brewed at home by boiling a teaspoonful of chamomile and ½ a teaspoonful of dill or fennel in two cups of water. After the herbs have steeped in the hot water for about 10 minutes you can drink as little as ¼ cup to experience relief. Chamomile is an excellent remedy, as it has no known side-effects on the body.

If the pain is experienced immediately after meals, avoid difficult-to-digest foods that are processed, greasy, fried, and high in fat. Control the intake of caffeinated/carbonated drinks, like coffee, black tea, and colas. Acidic fruit like oranges, and cooked tomatoes should also be avoided to cleanse the system.
