If you are experiencing moderate to mild abdominal pain in Fort Mill, South Carolina, Piedmont Urgent Care Center at Baxter Village can provide you with treatment to help you feel better. There are instances where an emergency room is appropriate for a stomachache, but if the pain is moderate to mild, the patient is not pregnant, and the condition does not follow a recent invasive surgery or procedure, an ER visit is probably not necessary.
There are times when you should seek emergency care at an ER for abdominal pain. This includes when there is abdominal pain and bleeding while pregnant, abdominal pain accompanied by a fever of 102 degrees or more, abdominal pain accompanied by bloody or black stool or vomiting of blood, chest tightness or shortness of breath, concentrated, sudden, and severe abdominal pain accompanied by a loss of consciousness, or abdominal pain accompanied by uncontrollable vomiting and chest pain. Patients who recently had an appendectomy or other invasive procedure or surgery should also immediately go to an ER if they begin experiencing abdominal pain, as this could be a complication from their recent procedure.
