What causes those random sharp pains in your organs at random times that go away after a few minutes ?

In: Biology

Ummmm…..what?!?!? I think you should see a doctor. Having random sharp pains in your organs at random times that go away after a few minutes is not normal. Seriously get yourself checked.

My guess would either be a cramp/spasm or gas pains/intestinal issue thats just trying to pass through the GI tract..buuut i aint no doctor..

Maybe gas? When I get them I thump the area where it happens a few times and it normally goes away. Drinking water also helps

Im guessing you’re talking about precordial catch syndrome. It’s is a non-serious condition in which there are sharp stabbing pains in the chest. These typically get worse with breathing in and occur within a small area. Spells of pain usually last less than a few minutes. I got these A LOT as child and my mom always told me they were growing pains and not to worry. Only recently did i discover that other people suffered from these as well in a discussion with the hubby.
