Why does your stomach hurt if you are hungry?



  1. 0 Votes

    Stomach pains or pangs occur when hungry for quite a few reasons. The major cause of the pains comes from your stomach muscles contracting after being without food or drink for a few hours. Also, your stomach can hurt when you’re hungry if you have low blood sugar. When your glucose levels drop, contractions occur and become more painful until proper carbohydrates are eaten.

    Some less common causes for hunger pains can be gastrointestinal disorders and pregnancy (muscles contract as the baby shifts).
