The large area which is located between the legs and the chest is the abdomen. Every pain felt in this area can be caused by various reasons. You should locate the exact place from where the pains stem, in order to get a better insight into the possible consequences of the pains you experience in this area. Actually, abdominal pain is one of the most common pangs that occasionally affect almost 90% of people. The cause of the pain is not always serious and vice versa-mild but long-terms pains may indicate a chronic disease, which must be cured.
If the abdominal pain lasts longer than 14-15 days, we recommend you to consult your doctor immediately, so that you can eliminate the possibility of a more serious diagnosis. If you notice persistent bloating, persistent vomiting, or the presence of blood in your stool, you should also consult your doctor immediately.
