Stomach pain is one of the most common forms of pain to rear its ugly head and is something that many of us will deal with on a semi-regular basis. While this is true however, it does not diminish the severity of the condition, nor how unpleasant it can be for those afflicted. Stomach pain can be debilitating in some cases and is often a sign of other issues. In this post, we will look at 20 different causes of stomach pain and suggest some reasons that these might have come about and ways that you can address them.
Whether it is wind, indigestion or something more serious, you should be able to find the answer here. And knowledge is your best weapon when it comes to finding a solution! Don’t worry though: in the vast majority of cases, stomach pain is nothing life-threatening!
DOMS is ‘Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness’. This is a condition that is caused by exercise and is the result of microdamage caused to the muscle tissue, which in turn leads to swelling and discomfort – often one or two days after the exercise.
DOMS is nothing to be worried about, in fact it is a normal part of the muscle growth process. We don’t gain muscle during exercise, but rather in the aftermath as our bodies recovered.
If you did sit ups the day before or two days before, this could explain stomach pain that feels sharp when you go to move. But even if you don’t remember engaging in sit ups, remember that there are many other forms of exercise that involve the core – in fact nearly all of them do!
Therefore, if you have been on the monkey bars, if you have engaged in any kind of sport or gymnastics or even if you have been stretching… any of these things can cause stomach pain! The best way to treat DOMS? Surprisingly it is actually to engage in more exercise!
