When a Stomachache Needs Medical Attention

Have you ever had a stomachache that makes you wonder, is this more than just a stomachache? You're not alone perhaps every time I have gas pains I wonder if I something more serious is going on down there.

Sometimes it is just hard to tell with our bodies, so I was thrilled to see this list of symptoms that would indicate that tummy ache is something more (and may even warrant a trip to the hospital):

  • Very sharp, severe and sudden pain
  • Fever along with your stomach or abdominal pain
  • Vomiting blood, or having bloody diarrhea
  • Soreness or tenderness in the abdomen
  • An abdomen that is hard and rigid
  • Inability to have a bowel movement, particularly if you are also vomiting
  • Pain in the chest, neck or shoulder
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
