Stomach cramps are pain that may be felt anywhere within the abdominal area.
The stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas can have various problems and they may be sources of pain and cramps.
Food poisoning, indigestion, infections, and inflammatory bowel disease can trigger pain in the abdomen.
Severe abdominal pain is a greater call for concern. If it starts suddenly, it is a medical emergency.
Sometimes, stomach cramps are felt in the abdomen even though it is from the other organs. The causes can range from pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, and pregnancy-related causes.
