What Can Cause Sharp Stomach Pains?

By    |   Friday, 04 Apr 2014 09:35 AM

Question: Three days ago, my husband gets sharp pains in his stomach that radiate to his back. They go away fairly quickly, but the keep happening. A urinalysis ruled out a bladder or kidney infection, and his doctor says it could be diverticulitis. But my husband has always eaten a high-fiber diet and has no problems with irregularity. What else could be going on?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
Recurrent episodic stomach pains radiating to the back can occur commonly with kidney stones, ulcer disease, heart disease, pancreatitis, appendicitis, gallstone disease, ischemic bowel, and many other serious abdominal disorders.
 
Diverticulitis usually provides a continuous pain, not usually episodic. Your husband needs further evaluation to define the cause of his symptoms, and three days of waiting is too long. Ask your doctor to refer you to the emergency room of the hospital of your choice for further evaluation without delay. There is no reason to guess any longer.
