When Stomach Pain Turns Into Something More Serious
It can be difficult to determine when a common issue has become a more serious concern.
When the pain is easy to ignore, we generally just push it aside and tell ourselves it will pass soon. However, sometimes the pain isn’t easy to ignore and can cause serious, and legitimate, concern.
“I texted my First Opinion doctor to tell her I was having terrible pain in my belly region. And, after asking a few detailed questions, she suggested that I to head to the ER right away. Turns out I had appendicitis, and they were able to treat me in a very timely manner. I don’t think I would have gone to the ER on my own; she saved my life by telling me to go when she did.” – Susan, First Opinion User
