Abdominal symptom associations in a longitudinal study.
The aim of the study was to assess the association of abdominal symptoms in a random sample of a general population and to find whether the associations could be confirmed at follow-up 5 years later.
The study population was a sex- and age-stratified random sample of people living in the western part of Copenhagen County, Denmark.
Of 4807 eligible subjects 79% attended the study and filled in a questionnaire on abdominal symptoms.
Five years later the study was repeated and 85% of the survivors participated.
Data from both studies were analysed separately for sex, age group and the following pain variables: unspecified abdominal pain, pain located to the epigastrium, pain provoked by stress or hunger, pain relieved by eating and pain relieved by defecation.
