This section of the Buscopan® website looks at the different kinds of abdominal cramps, pain and discomfort, their potential causes and possible treatment options.

A recent global survey shows that almost a quarter of the population is affected by abdominal cramps, pain & discomfort. Recent UK research shows that 29% of men and 39% of women go through abdominal cramps, pain and discomfort.

Symptoms are usually first experienced in your 20s or early 30s but can continue throughout your life. Two thirds of the people who have this common condition say it strikes without warning and a third say they suffer from agonizing pain every week. It may strike at any time and is one of the most common causes of missing work. It might range from mild and uncomfortable to very severe.
