Chronic abdominal pain is one of the most commonly encountered symptoms in childhood and adolescence. It is believed that between 10 and 15% of school-aged children between the ages of 5 and 18 have had this condition during childhood. Most pediatricians and pediatric gas-troenterologists agree that when multiple episodes or attacks of pain in the abdomen occur over a 3-month period of time, the condition is considered chronic. Patients with chronic abdominal pain typically have their normal activities affected. Occasionally, children with this condition will complain repeatedly to their parents of pain, but will not refrain from normal activities. Over 90% of children with chronic recurrent abdominal pain have a functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder. The term "functional" is used if no specific structural, infectious, inflammatory or biochemical cause can be found to explain the symptoms.
