What is Abdominal Pain?
Abdominal pain is pain felt anywhere from below your ribs to your pelvis. It is also known as tummy pain, gut pain or stomach pain. The abdomen houses many organs, including your stomach, liver, pancreas, small and large bowel, and reproductive organs. There are also major blood vessels in the abdomen.
