Brief Answer:
intestine infection or muscle cramps likely.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have read your query and here is my advise.

* As per my surgical experience, in majority of the cases, intestine infection or muscle
cramps are prime reasons with lesser possibility of other conditions.

Kindly provide further details so that I can answer your query completely.

1. Pain - intensity, type, duration, any relation with food intake ?
2. Associated vomiting, any alteration in food intake ?
3. Urination, bowel movements or breathing difficulty if any ?
4. History of fall while playing or else ?

Awaiting for your response.
Primary relief can be obtained with dispersible tablet of paracetamol ( 325 mg ) if pain is more severe.

Regards.
