Could be IBS: Ibs does not usually go away. It requires being careful with your diet, usually for life. Abdominal pain after eating could also be a sign of ulcer disease or other stomach problems. If this is a new symptom, it should be evaluated by your doctor. And you may want to keep a food diary to see if you can figure out what is causing your symptoms.
