Abdominal pain includes any uncomfortable sensation that affects your belly. There are many types of abdominal pain, including:
Generalized abdominal pain
Generalized abdominal pain means your discomfort affects more than half of your abdominal area.
Localized abdominal pain
If you have localized abdominal pain, your discomfort only affects one area of your belly, which may indicate a problem with a specific organ, such as your gallbladder.
Cramp-like abdominal pain
With cramp-like abdominal pain, you may feel bloated and gassy and then have diarrhea.
Colicky abdominal pain
Colicky abdominal pain refers to severe pain that comes and goes.
