Abdominal pain is one of the more common problems that may affect more than 90% of the population. The intensity of the pain may often scare us, but it is not necessarily due to something serious. However, lingering symptoms can indicate a chronic disease that should be treated.
If your pain lasts for more than two weeks, accompanied with lont-term bloating, vomiting, diarrhea, and blood in the stool, make sure you consult your doctor to avoid any severe health problem and a serious diagnosis.
