Abdominal pain is also in place when a person suffers from the typhoid fever. This ache appears between the chest and pelvic zone. Patients report about the cramps over the body. The pain may be either dull or rather harsh. You may wonder why it gets this way. It does not matter where the infection begins (which organs are attacked first) – this type of infection involves the bacteria that can penetrate the digestive tract. That is how an abdominal ache appears.
