What causes stomach pain and bloating?
Several factors lead to abdominal pain. Among the common causes are indigestion, constipation, bloating, and heartburn. Some minor causes include intolerance for gluten or lactose. But these are worst for people who are suffering from alcohol addiction. Since alcohol triggers more acid production in the body, the acid reflux can be worst.

Why do you feel Sharp Stomach Pain?
Earlier, we had a breakdown of the common causes of abdominal pain. But in this section, let’s briefly expound on three of the primary reasons.
- Wrong eating habits or a chronic digestive problem can trigger indigestion. Indigestion results in stomach pain or bloating, heartburn, nausea, and vomiting.
- When the stomach acid comes into the esophagus, pain occurs. The pain manifests a burning sensation in the upper stomach and chest and sometimes, into the throat.
- When gas builds up in the abdomen or when you need to have a bowel movement due to constipation, you will experience sharp pain.
What Does Constipation Feel like?
Constipation varies from one person to another. But the following are common indicators regardless of age or gender. Mainly, it can feel like constipation comes from different symptoms.
Among them are:
- Sharp pain in the left side under your belly button
- Cramping bowels
- Fullness in your intestines and stomach area though you only had small meals
- Difficulty and discomfort while breathing
- Feeling heavy and burdened
- Aching sensation in the back that eventually disappears after your bowel release
