Abdominal Pain in Kids

Jennifer Couceyro, Advanced Registered Nurses Practitioner with Baptist Children�۪s Hospital, says there are many causes of abdominal pain and children, the most common one would infectious agents, like viral infections. "There are some other lesser common reasons, such as constipation, and gastritis," she explains.

Although stress can also be a factor, she recommends checking physical things first, because you do not want to ignore symptoms. Check with your pediatrician first, and have them seen by a medical professional.
