Abdominal Cramps

Pain in the stomach region, below the chest and above the groins, is referred to as abdominal pain. It is a very common symptom of multiple health conditions. Abdominal pain can be generalized, localized, cramp-like, and colicky pain. The cause of abdominal pain can be variable, for example, gas, indigestion, period cramps, appendicitis, kidney or gall bladder stones, stomach or colon cancer, etc. The intensity of abdominal pain does not generally determine the severity of the underlying cause.
