Thank you for your question, do you have fever ? does this pain area hurts when pressed ? do you have burning urination ?
Expert:  Dr.S.A.Alam replied 7 months ago.
Pain in this area can be duet o stomach ulcer, pancreas pain and renal or kidney problems. If this pain increase with food intake then it is due to stomach ulcer. If it is related to burning urination then it can be due to urinary tract or kidney infection. If it is in the centre of abdomen more on the left side then it can be due to pancreatic problem. If this pain has been there for 3 days and not resolving then best option would be to visit emergency right away. Simple clinical examination by a doctor will help. Blood Cp, abdomen ultrasound and urine test are test that should be done. Let me know if you have questions, thank you.
