Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Stomach Ache
A stomach ache is a term often used to refer to cramps or a dull ache in the abdomen area. Most common causes of stomach pain are short-lived and not serious. It may be caused by indigestion, constipation, stomach virus, or, if you're a woman, menstrual cramps. Some other possible causes include IBS, food allergies, gas, GERD.
If a stomach pain is severe, doesn't go away, or keeps coming back then it may indicate a more serious problem and you should see a doctor. Severe abdominal pain is a greater cause for concern. If it starts suddenly and unexpectedly, it should be regarded as a medical emergency, especially if the pain is concentrated in a particular area.
