Dear Nicky
No it won't cause stomach ache, it can be an indication that food went through the digestive system quickly - some foods digest more difficult - like whole corn and some beans. Cramping stomach ache can be caused by infections, constipation or stress, burning stomach ache is often due to gastric ulcers or inflammation of the stomach lining.
