Information About Abdominal Pain

Abdominal pain is pain and discomfort that occurs in your abdomen. Your abdomen is the section of your torso between your chest and your pelvis. Other terms used to describe the abdomen are stomach, tummy, gut and belly.

Most cases of abdominal pain aren't emergencies. But call your doctor right away if your child has abdominal pain so severe that he can't move without causing more pain or he can't sit still or find a comfortable position. Also seek immediate medical help if pain is accompanied by other worrisome signs and symptoms, such as bloody diarrhea or chest pain.
