What does a stomach cramp indicate?

Are they serious?


Answer by  Peter1563 (265)

The causes of stomach cramps are pretty diverse - sometimes it can be due to your diet, for example. If you're having chronic stomach cramps, you should see your doctor even if the cause may be relatively benign. One condition that can cause chronic stomach cramps is irritable bowel syndrome. Others can be controlled through diet changes, usually minor ones.

It can be many things depending on your age, sex and where exactly you feel the cramp pain. It could be an intestinal block, irritation from spicy food, or even gas.
