Once the cause of the abdominal pain is found, treatment is relatively standard. For e.g., proton pump inhibitor and antibiotics are used for ulcer related to helicobacter pylori infection. It is important to appreciate that common conditions typically respond well to treatment. Hence when symptoms persist or worsen in spite of treatment, further clinical examinations and tests or procedures may be required. Some patients may in fact have functional disorders, which would require longer periods of treatment and monitoring.
