Stomach Pain or Abdominal Trauma
A direct hit to the stomach or abdomen can lead to internal bleeding or other complications.
Signs it might be serious - Call 911 right away if you notice any of these:
- Large bruises over the stomach - it is very difficult to bruise the skin over your stomach with a hit. It is more likely that the blood is coming from inside your abdomen, causing the bruise.
- Sudden, severe abdominal or stomach pain.
- Nausea or vomiting.
- Signs of shock - read the section above for more information.
- Unusually firm or hard stomach with severe pain when touched.
