Abstract

A practical approach to the management of chronic abdominal pain is needed, given the high prevalence and impact of this problem. This article describes an approach that has evolved based on clinical experience and review of the literature: identifying predominant bloaters and abdominal wall pain; exclusion of organic disease, including consideration of laparoscopy for diagnosis; consideration of chronic functional abdominal pain and the first and second line pharmacotherapies; and seeking specialist care in a pain clinic, psychiatry, or behavioural therapy.
