      It can be feeling worried, it could be an infection/ stomach bug or too much food that irritates the lining of your stomach such a curry

      I usually get a stomach ache when I eat something too hot, too spicy or too acidic. We can also have a stomach ache when the food that we eat is not hygienic/ cooked properly.

      if we do’have any of the things the others have mentioned the stomach or intestines can become inflamed, much like if you sprain your ankle and it swells, and it is this process that causes the pain we feel.
