With a thorough exam and history, we can determine the underlying issue to determine if it can be treated. In some cases such pain would be referred to a specialist.
Hope this helps.

Hope you are feeling better now. There are so many reasons that will cause the abdominal pain. I believe a good acupuncturist can diagnose the cause of your problem and treat it.
With the limited information you have here, it is difficult to answer this question.
Hope this helps,

Abdominal pain originating from gas can usually very much be helped with acupuncture. Additionally, it can help regulate the digestive system and bowels to give good long term effect of keeping the bloating away.
More so, there are also acupuncture protocols to regulate acid and thus reduce and/or eliminate acid reflux or GERD symptoms.
It is definitely worth a try! Always look for a licensed and well-educated practitioner, usually with over 3000 hours of specifically Eastern medicine training.Thank you for your question.
Best of luck.
Best wishes and good luck,

I'm sorry to hear that you are currently experiencing pain. Abdominal and GI issues are often helped with acupuncture and herbal medicine. My own success story with traditional Chinese medicine to treat IBS & severe constipation I had as a teenager is what ultimately led me to becoming a DOM. A qualified practitioner will not only administer acupuncture to help resolve the blockage, but they will address any dietary or nutritional deficiencies that could be the root cause of your issue. You may try searching for one that is qualified in functional medicine as well. Even though you are experiencing acidity, it could be low stomach acid that is causing all of this. I complete medical history and a simple at home test for low stomach acid should be utilized to be sure. In the meantime you may try these three acupressure points on yourself for some symptom relief until you can be seen. Apply moderate pressure for a few minutes in rotation until symptoms start to abate or become tolerable.
Please note, I am not affiliated with the above clinic, they just happen to have really clear acupuncture diagrams I use to help people like yourself find the specific point that may bring them relief. Acupressure may not help as much as actual acupuncture, but is certainly worth a try!
