What are the common causes of stomach pain and bloating?

The most common cause is eating foods that will give you gas, diarrhea or constipation. It can also be a more serious sign of Crohns/colitis Disease or endometriosis. It can also be a sign your period is coming.

A lot of times it is caused by a food allergy. Milk intolerance will cause such symptoms. Eating too fast can do this because you tend to swallow air.

Bloating is caused by irregular digestion that causes a buildup of excess gas. Stomach pain and bloating can be caused by an increase in the amount of fiber you consume, too much sodium or alcohol, carbonated beverages or drinking too little water.

The most common cause is the menstrual cycle in women. If you are a male it may possibly be your appendix that is inflamed, this can also happen in women too. If the pain persists then go to the hospital. Other causes may be gas from eating too much greasy food.
