10 Reasons Why Your Stomach Hurts

  • Food poisoning – You can get food poisoning from bacteria, viruses, and parasites in food. The symptoms include diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome – This illness targets the large intestine(also called the colon). It causes cramping, bloating, and mucus in your stool. Usually, if you’re suffering from this disease, there’s a constant back and forth between diarrhea and constipation. Although the causes of this are still uncertain, scientists have discovered that food, stress, hormones and infection may play a part. There’s no treatment to cure it, but you can control it by changing your diet, lifestyle, and medication.
  • Lactose intolerance – Lactose is the sugar in milk and other dairy products. It occurs when you lack sufficient lactase, which is an enzyme that helps you break the lactose down. There’s no cure for lactose intolerance, but you can definitely feel better by eliminating any lactose-based product in your diet.
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease – This disease happens exclusively to women, and it’s an inflammation of the reproductive organs, caused by a sexually transmitted disease like chlamydia or gonorrhea. You can experience pain in your belly, fever, unusual discharge, and pain or bleeding during intercourse. If you wait too long, it can damage your reproductive system.
  • Appendicitis – The appendix is a finger-shaped organ that can be found at the beginning of your colon, in the lower right part of your belly. Funnily enough, no one managed to understand what’s the purpose of it, but when it’s inflamed, it gets infected and it should be taken out.
  • Gallbladder attack – This occurs when gallstones, which are small rocks made from juices that help with digestion, are blocking the tubes, or the ducts that run between our liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and small intestine. The most common symptom is abdominal pain, but you can also experience nausea, vomiting, fever, tea-colored urine.
