When your stomach hurts, it's hard to concentrate on anything other than your discomfort. Abdominal pain is a common condition that affects people for a variety of reasons and has different levels of severity. Heartburn and indigestion are more mild reasons for abdominal discomfort. More severe conditions include gallstones, a perforated intestine, or appendicitis. Seeking medical treatment is recommended if you experience pain and symptoms that do not improve at home. It is especially important to seek medical care if the pain is new, constant, extremely intense, or accompanied by other symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, fainting, fatigue, weakness, bloody stools, or shortness of breath. Rockwall Rapid Care in Rockwall, TX has all of the tools to properly diagnose your stomach pain. Our highly skilled team will work with you to understand your symptoms and direct you to the proper treatment.



Stomach or abdominal pain can have many different causes. In most cases, stomach pain is not a chronic or serious issue, and may be caused by problems digesting something, a brief infection, or a malady that originated in another part of the body. However, severe pain with a sudden onset may be caused by a ruptured appendix, gallstones, or kidney stones. If abdominal pain is chronic, it could be caused by a condition such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), irritable bowel syndrome, or Crohn’s disease. Additionally, the area of the stomach where the pain is being felt may offer some clues as to the cause of stomach pain. If your stomach pain needs medical attention, please get in touch with Rockwall Rapid Care so we can try to pinpoint the exact reason for your stomach issues.

How is Stomach Pain Diagnosed?

Generally speaking, diagnosing stomach pain involves a medical history review, physical examination, and diagnostic tests. During your initial consultation and evaluation, our physicians will gather information on various aspects of your pain and symptoms, including the onset, duration, nature, and accompanying symptoms. A physical exam may be perofrmed to check vital signs and abdominal tenderness. Blood tests, urinalysis, and imaging (like X-rays or ultrasound) may be used for further assessment, helping to expedite the process of achieving a definitive diagnosis. Once diagnosed, treatment options can be discussed more accurately, including medication, therapy, surgery, lifestyle changes, or specialist referrals.

Several less serious conditions can cause stomach pain. Symptoms for these conditions often resolve on their own, but there are still treatment options available at Rockwall Rapid Care. Examples of these conditions include:

  • Constipation
  • Food allergies or symptoms associated with lactose intolerance
  • Food poisoning
  • Heartburn, indigestion, or gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)
  • Stomach flu
  • Stomach virus
  • UTI or bladder infection

Other painful conditions can be more serious and should be diagnosed and treated more rapidly. Examples of more serious abdominal pain conditions include:

  • Appendicitis
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Cancer of the stomach or colon
  • Cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder)
  • Diverticulitis (inflammation and infection of the colon)
  • Endometriosis
  • Gallstones
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis)
  • Kidney stones
  • Pancreatitis (swelling or infection of the pancreas)

When you visit Rockwall Rapid Care with any level of abdominal pain, our board-certified physician will first perform a medical exam and ask questions about your medical history to try and uncover the root of the problem. Depending on the symptoms and level of pain, our physician may recommend further tests, like an ultrasound or a blood test.

Rockwall Rapid Care is the best urgent care facility I've ever used. We (family of 5) are repeat customers, and have recommended Rockwall Rapid Care to many friends and family members. We usually use the online booking tool, which is super convenient, but they also allow walk-ins. Most appointments are completed curbside, and the wait time is never more than a few minutes. Dr. Fieldsmith is very friendly and easy going. He takes his time during appointments and the interaction never feels rushed.

About Us
How do I know if my stomach pain is serious?

There are five general indicators that stomach pain is more serious than simple heartburn or indigestion. These often include extreme pain that doesn’t go away or worsens, uncontrolled vomiting and/or diarrhea, blood in the stool or stool that is a dark black color, current health issues such as recent surgery, pregnancy, etc., and concurrent symptoms like chest pain, fever, difficulty breathing, or pain that spreads into the lower back.

What are some ways to treat stomach pain at home?

To relieve stomach pain at home, you can try peppermint, apple cider vinegar, ginger, chamomile tea, applying a heating pad, drinking plenty of water, and the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast), which is easier to digest.

What are the symptoms of a stomach ulcer?

Stomach ulcers typically present as a deep burning or gnawing pain centrally located in the stomach area. However, some ulcers may not present any symptoms at all, or be mild enough to be mistaken for heartburn, acid reflux, or indigestion. If you are experiencing regular stomach pain, we may recommend scheduling a consultation with our team at Rockwall Rapid Care to diagnose the root cause of your stomach pain and treat it accordingly.
