A tummy ache may refer to pain in the abdomen, stomach cramps or a dull ache in the tummy. It’s not often a serious illness but it depends on the level of pain we are undergoing.
Having severe tummy ache is a greater call for concern. If it starts suddenly, it should be regarded as a medical emergency, especially when the pain is located in a particular area.
If you suddenly feel pain in the area around your ribs, read about information regarding stomach ache or ask for medical advice from your health practitioner in your area.
