Why Your Young Teen Could Be Having Abdominal Pain???

Possible causes for abdominal pain range from trivial to life-threatening with little difference in the child's complaints and symptoms. Fortunately, abdominal pain in a child usually improves quickly. Parents or caregivers face the difficult decision of whether a complaint needs emergency care or not. Here are some most common causes and symtoms of abdominal pain.

Causes of abdominal pain

Infections: Viruses or bacteria can cause abdominal pain, typically from stomach flu or gut flu (called gastroenteritis). Often these infections are associated with other gastrointestinal symptoms such as cramps, nausea, and diarrhea. Viral infections tend to resolve quickly, while bacterial infections may need an antibiotic to improve.

Food related: Food poisoning, food allergies, eating excessive food, or gas – any of these can cause bloating and temporary discomfort.

Surgical problems: These include appendicitis or blockage of the bowels.Things outside the abdomen can cause abdominal pain. For example, a child can have abdominal pain from complications of diabetes or from a black widow spider bite.
