Stomach pain in adults

You can get a stomach ache for many reasons. The cause can be obvious, for example in case of food poisoning or menstrual pain. Sometimes it is more difficult to know what it is due to, for example if the problems are about stress or a disease that is difficult to detect. Often, stomach pain goes away by itself but sometimes you may need treatment.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease in children

Between the stomach and the esophagus is the upper stomach. If it does not hold tightly, the contents of the stomach can be pushed up into the esophagus. It is called gastroesophageal reflux. If the stomach contents that are upset affect the child negatively, it is called gastroesophageal reflux disease.
