User avatar Hello,
This is not enough information to make a guess. There are many organs in the abdomen which can cause you pain. It would help to know when you experience the pain and is it better or worse after eating? Would you describe it as a sharp, stabbing pain, a dull ache or something else? Does it hurt with movement or breathing? Is is constant or intermittent? Is it lessening or getting worse? Is it relieved by antacids, food or anything else? Is it worse when you eat a particular food or drink? What is your age? What is the reason for the coumadin medication? Even with the answers we may have a hard time guessing the diagnosis but if it is sharp, getting worse, accompanied by fever or you just plain feel like things are going downhill fast, don't wait to see a doctor.

Good luck
