Brief answer...given below Detailed answer... Hello, Thanks for the query. I would need some more information from you before I can answer this because feeling just cold in the stomach doesn't give any particular clue. Are you suffering from any other gastrointestinal complaints like acidity,bloating,regurgitation of food,burping,excessive farting etc ? Do you get this cold feeling throughout the day or after taking specific things Like cold water,spicy food,alcohol etc? Any other symptom which you would like to state? Do you get vomiting or diarrhoea? Awaiting your reply. Thanks

Hello, Normally such a cold feeling occurs if a person is having acid reflux called as GERD or if he is suffering from gastritis.But if you don't have any Gastro intestinal symptoms,then it is very difficult to point towards any thing in particular. However,the best would be to consult a gastroenterologist and get yourself examined properly.He can perform certain blood tests and ultrasound abdomen to look for any cause.He may even perform a endoscopy to look your stomach from inside. I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query. Best of luck Thanks

I have occasionally had blood in my stool which I believe is from hemorrhoids...I have no other symptoms except constipationI have had this cold feeling for the last few days and have been craving lemons and it is all day with no burping excess farting or anything

Hello, You are right that constipation is leading to hemorrhoids which leads to bleeding during bowel movements. Craving for lemons could be an indication of some dehydration in you or it could even mean deficiency of vitamins like VIT C or even deficiency of iron or magnesium also. Since your symptoms are just few days old,I would advise you to take plenty of water,lemons,fresh fruits and green vegetables. I hope your constipation as well as this weird cold feeling in your stomach also goes away. Do it for 7-10 days and see the results. We can again discuss after 10 days. Thanks
