What causes sharp abdominal cramping after eating and small lump on side of neck?
User rating for this question
I noticed a small lump on the side of my neck about the size of a small peppercorn about 5 weeks ago. It has gotten slightly larger in that time, but is not painful. Ive also had 2 mouth ulcers in the last two weeks and have been feeling more run down than usual. I've also noticed sharp abdominal cramping any time I eat for the last 3-4 weeks. I would say the pain was mild-moderate, but sometimes I leaves me doubled over for a few seconds. It also hurts when I'm not eating from time to time, but more often than not, it's only with meals
