There are a whole host of abdominal problems that can make you double over in agony. While some are more serious than others, it’s not always easy to pinpoint what’s wrong.
When in doubt, or if the pain lasts for longer than an hour, check with a doctor and watch out for accompanying symptoms.
According to Dr Gwee Kok Ann, director and consultant gastroenterologist at Stomach Liver & Bowel Clinic, alarm symptoms include fever, vomiting, diarrhoea and passing of blood in stools. In such cases, you should seek medical help as soon as possible.
