Abdominal pain & noncardiac chest pain

Experiencing chronic pain in your abdomen and chest can indicate a number of disorders. If cardiac chest pain has been eliminated, working with a GI specialist is the next step in diagnosing the problem and getting the treatment you require to being feeling better.

Because the causes of abdominal pain are numerous and varied, an exam is necessary. Discussion of how long your symptoms have been present and other symptoms you are experiencing will aid in your diagnosis. In many cases, your physician will want to perform tests, both laboratory and imaging, to determine the best course of action. Abdominal pain may be a symptom of other GI conditions such as GERD, Crohn’s disease, lactose intolerance or ulcers.
