    additional pain

    Are these both correct:
    1-He felt additional pain in his abdomen.
    2-He felt added pain in his abdomen.

    I am not sure about '2'.
    Can we tell if he felt pain in his abdomen before or not?

    I think the sentences could mean that the pain in his abdomen became stronger or that he was feeling pain elsewhere in his body and now he felt pain in his abdomen as well.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: additional pain

    1 is OK, but 2 doesn't work for me. If you wanted to say that this was a second pain, it would work better with an additional pain IMO. I would interpret your sentence to mean that the pain in his abdomen had got worse or, possibly, that a new pain started there, a second abdominal pain.
