An abdominal disorder can affect the stomach, ovaries, spleen, heart, intestine, oesophagus, liver, pancreas, gall bladder and/or kidneys. Symptoms of an abdominal disordered can be determined by uneasiness in any of these organs of the body. A simple stomach pain or diarrhea can be caused because of the consumption of greasy or unhygienic food.
