In brief: See below

Abdominal migraine is a disorder primarily of children which presents with episodes of abdominal pain without an accompanying headache.
It is difficult to confirm the diagnosis as there are not a set of features that is specific and thus it can take time before the diagnosis is made. The condition is rare in adults.
