Abdominal pain can be a very general term, and often one of the trickiest
things to diagnose. When pain or discomfort occurs between the chest and
pelvis, it's considered abdominal pain. Most of the time it’s
mild or subsides quickly, but if symptoms worsen or become more severe,
it could be a sign of another underlying cause. To better understand the
reason for your abdominal pain and how to treat it, you’ll want

Symptoms can vary from increased pressure to sharp pains. At times, tightness
or restriction in the abdomen can occur, too. Most of the time, a change
in diet can stop the reoccurrence of gas, and it can often be relieved
with a belch, flatulence, or medication.

Often abdominal pain can be caused by other issues that are not related
to your digestive tract such as:
