Our expert says:
Stomach ache associated with meals usually is because of gastritis, or deodenitis which is inflammation of the stomach or first part of the intestines. These pains are usually burning, can spread to your back and gets better with eating. Cramplike pains can be because of spasm in the bowels and something like Buscopan or Scopex would work better for it. Migraine can also cause stomach pain, as well as a host of other organ diseases like pancreatitis, liverdisease and even irritable bowel syndrome etc. A Gastro enterologist will be able to help you find the problem.
