I have been having these sharp zaps or shooting pains across the stomach for like a second a few times a day for past week what can cause this?

Gas: By far the most likely cause for a fleeting pain in this area is a gas bubble that causes some part of the intestinal tract to balloon out momentarily which can be painful. As soon as it passes, the pain is gone. Try some simethicone or charco-caps and avoid all foods and sodas and gum that can cause gas.

Some thoughts...: Abdominal pain has many causes. Far too many to list here. When you see your doctor, they'll ask you lots of questions: is it worse before or after you eat? Are your bowel movements normal? How long has it been going on? Any nausea? Does eating make it feel better? The "differential" for abdominal pain is so big that you really deserve a thorough history and exam to get to the bottom of it.
