Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Stomach pain could be because of multiple causes. Some times there may not be a significant cause. Some times children complain of stomach pain when they are force fed or asked to do a thing that they do not want to do.

Some times stomach pain could be because of various causes like gastritis, urinary tract infection etc which require further investigations and management.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
