Greetings and thank you for contacting us.

Although your enquiry is straight to the point, our assistance is still limited due to the medium this forum provides.

First off, one must first understand that abdominal pain or stomach ache can be caused by various ailments or condition, including:

  • excessive muscle stress

or may also be caused by a more serious condition such as pancreatic, bile, liver or other types of organ disorders.

Therefore, without a thorough assessment, we cannot conclude a working diagnosis nor can we advise the right medication.

However, for temporary measure, we advisable you to:
