Of course, but focus: on obvious first. Intestinal distress/nausea are common symptoms of fear. As emotional/brain response to fear we may either ?HR, blood pressure, etc. (fight response) or ?HR, BP, etc. (flight response). In later, veins relax, ?ing blood return to heart, heart output ?es & fainting occurs. It may seem to work because we "blackout" to issues/fear driving response; but helpless & no problem solving!

I've been getting stomach aches for no reason, that last a while. Could it be ovarian cancer?

I've been getting stomach aches for no reason, that last a while.  Could it be ovarian cancer?

No: Unless ovarian cancer is associated with metastatic disease to bowel causing intermittent intestinal obstruction, this lesion is usually painless. The tumor when it metastasizes goes to omentum and produces ascites where the belly first fills with fluid. Stomach aches are usually associated with gastric problems and may be controlled with antacids or acid inhibitors like Prilosec.

My baby is 3 and half years old.For last 1 month she is saying she has a stomach ache after every meal.What should I do?

Call your doctor: A 3-year-old may not be able to adequately describe his/her symptoms to you. I would highly recommend you contact the child's pediatrician. Next time, don't wait a month before reporting symptoms that are unusual or irregular. Use the "3-day rule": anything that lasts more than 3 days or happens on 3 separate days needs professional attention. It's may be bigger than you think.

I do situps. My stomach aches for a day and then brown blood discharged after 3 days my last period. Why is that?

Not related: Doing sit-ups shouldn't cause abnormal or break through bleeding. I think the timing was just a coincidence.
