Abdominal pain is discomfort in your abdomen from the ribs to the groin that can occur anywhere in your abdomen. When such a problem occurs in the stomach, it is called abdominal pain. Not only this, apart from this, it can also happen in any internal organs. When you have abdominal pain for three months or more, it is considered a chronic ongoing problem. However this time period is not accurate. Abdominal pain comes in many forms ranging from cramping, stabbing pains to persistent dull abdominal pain. Not only this, even mild pain can be an early sign of a serious condition.
