If you’re experiencing abdominal pain, don’t worry too much about it; it’s probably the result of just gas buildup or something else equally harmless. However, coping with such pain can be an incredibly taxing endeavor that may prove too aggravating for you to go about your daily routine. Luckily, abdominal pain can easily be treated using accessible over-the-counter medicines, or by simply changing up your eating habits.

We here at AFC Urgent Care North Andover realize how fast life moves nowadays, and thus, recognize how quickly things pile up if you miss a day of work or school. And for something as innocuous as a stomach ache, you shouldn’t have to miss work or school. Instead, just visit us at our location in North Andover and we’ll get you well on your way so you can continue excelling in whatever you do.

Before our physicians can treat you, though, they’ll have to first diagnose what it is that is causing your abdominal pain. This way our physicians can find out what changes you need to make in order to ensure that it won’t return. Our collective experience in the medical field guarantees that we can find out what it is that is triggering your pain. From there our team will find the solution to curing your stomach pain, and if it’s something serious that is causing the pain, our physicians can prescribe the necessary medication to treat you.

Causes of abdominal pain include:

  • Gas/Indigestion
  • Ulcers
  • Stomach Virus
  • Kidney Stones
  • Appendicitis
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Acid Reflux
  • Gallstones
  • Constipation

Abdominal pain is sudden, so we understand that when you want treatment for it, you want it as soon as possible. Therefore, we here at AFC Urgent Care North Andover make ourselves accessible seven days a week, at extended hours. Furthermore, we accommodate all walk-in visits, expediting your treatment schedule faster than both an ER or primary care physician would.
