In brief: Bother in the Belly

Abdominal pain can occur for many reasons, most are transient and not worrisome.
Persistent pain, however, could be a sign of a more serious issue. Prior surgery and scarring could cause adhesions and pain, small herniations could cause pain, kidney stones could be a source as well as other issues such as tumors. It is best you seek the assistance of a physician for examination if it continues.
