Know when to call 911
While we are able to treat most stomach issues, there are times when it’s important to seek emergency help. If your abdominal pain is severe and associated with trauma from an accident or injury, or you are experiencing pressure or pain in your chest, call 911 immediately, or go to the nearest emergency department.
