Abdominal pain after eating usually originates from the stomach. If this has happened for the first time, you may try to relieve the pain and request a prescription for spasmolitic medicine (trospirum) and a H2-blocator (ranitidine). If this pain repeats for a longer period, you may perform a gastro-duodenoscopy to exclude a peptic ulcer or stomach cancer.
