Abdominal / Stomach Pains

There are many different causes of abdominal pain, some more serious than others. Abdominal pain is characterized by aching or cramping in the belly, which is the area between the chest and the pelvis. While this pain is often mild, it can be quite severe at times.

What Causes Abdominal Pain?

There are many different factors that can contribute to abdominal pain or cramping. Because of this, it can be difficult to know what the exact source of the pain is. Some of the most common causes of abdominal pain include:

  • Heartburn or indigestion
  • Stomach flu
  • Food poisoning
  • Allergic reaction
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Gastritis (irritation of the stomach lining)
  • Constipation
  • Menstruation
  • Ulcers
  • Hernia
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Muscle strain

  • Gallstones
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Endometriosis
  • Appendicitis
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

These are just some of the most common causes of abdominal pain, but please keep in mind that this list is not exhaustive. In many cases, stomach pain comes with diarrhea and vomiting. Other symptoms that can accompany stomach pain and indicate something more serious may be going on include:

  • High fever
  • Inability to keep food down for more than a couple days

  • Vomiting blood
  • Bloody stools
  • Difficulty breathing
