Recognize the warning signs
If you’re someone who experiences stomach upset often, then you know how frustrating it can be to try to identify the cause and take the appropriate action. Unfortunately, there is no single cause for most stomach upsets, so it can be tricky to identify what’s wrong.
That being said, there are a few warning signs that you should watch for and take action on. If you experience any of the following, it’s important to speak to your doctor as soon as possible:
- Abdominal pain
If any of these symptoms persist for more than two days, it’s important to visit a doctor. In some cases, there may be a medical condition that needs to be addressed before the stomach upset can be resolved.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms and you’re not sure what’s causing them, it’s a good idea to start by eliminating any potential food allergens from your diet and see if that resolves the issue. If that doesn’t work, then you may need to see a doctor.
