Intestinal (small): If your mom hs pain centered near the navel and it is a cramping pain-coming from the small intestine. She may have a viral or bacterial enteritis. If problems continue, she needs to see her doctor. If her entire abdomen becomes sore-ot becomes an emergency, ie appendicitis or other issues come into play!
