What does severe pain in the upper abdomen mean?

Dear Ask The Doctor:
What does it mean if i have severe pain in my upper abdomen? its been like 3 days and it keeps getting worse as the days go by, i cant barely eat anything as well.


Severe upper abdominal pain in someone your age could be caused by several conditions. These include gall stones, a stomach ulcer, acute pancreatitis, hepatitis and acid reflux disease.  Since you have been having this pain for three days I strongly suggest seeing a doctor.
