What can I do about my abdominal pain?

First you have to find out what kind of abdominal pain you have. The doctor can help with this.

Diarrhea can be helped by a warm bottle on the abdominal; appendicitis has to be operated on. Constipation is helped by eating foods that make your stool soft (for example, vegetables and whole grain bread), drinking a lot and doing sports.

Abdominal pain that occurs with stress or school problems can be helped by relaxation exercises or distraction. Of course it makes sense to do something about the cause of the problems. For example, sometimes it helps if parents talk with the teacher.
