Abdominal Migraine

Do you happen to experience abdominal pains during a migraine attack? If so, you may be experiencing an abdominal migraine. Such pain, usually uncomfortable but tolerable, occurs in the abdomen.

The possible side effects from such pain includes cramp-like spasms, bloating, vomiting, and loss of appetite. Abdomen pain can be caused by many reasons.

Most of the times, it is experienced by children and is more likely to take place in females than in males. While the precise reason behind abdominal migraines is unknown, it is suspected to be linked to serotonin deficiency.

Serotonin deficiency has been featured in several studies on migraines. In case you are not aware, 90% of the body’s serotonin is created within the gastric system. This is the reason of how abdominal migraine comes about.
