Abdominal Pain, Bloating, Nausea, Decreased Appetite, Dizziness, Fever Up And Down, And Excessive Sweating?
Greetings doc, since a month ago I often had a stomach ache, felt bloated, nausea, vomiting, no appetite, headaches, stomach felt like aching, and a dry cough, sometimes there was a fever and sometimes not. Sometimes also sweat, sometimes not. I have checked the blood platelet results have risen to 658, while the hospital doctor also confused what the pain. hemoglobin 11.5, another normal. Do you think it hurts, doc? Do I need radiology, CT scan or what kind of check to find out my disease?
Thank you for the question.
Abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, dry cough, accompanied by dizziness, fever up and down, and excessive sweating can be very many possible triggers, for example:
Indigestion, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, intestinal inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, digestive infections, typhus, cholangitis, hepatitis, gastric cancer, colon cancer, throat cancer
Respiratory disorders, such as pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, tuberculosis, tonsillopharyngitis
Other organ system disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, malnutrition, infection of other organ systems, malignancies, and so on
Your high platelet level (more than 450,000 cells per microliter of blood) does not specifically refer to a disease. High levels of platelets can occur due to genetic abnormalities that affect the work of the spinal cord in producing platelets, infection, bleeding, cancer, malnutrition, postoperative removal of the spleen, hemolytic anemia, inflammatory disorders (such as intestinal inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis, lupus) , etc.
What else is another examination that needs to be done on your condition, what is the exact cause of your complaints, and what exactly is the treatment that needs to be done so that your condition improves, of course, can only be determined after you have checked yourself directly to the doctor or internist. Therefore, before the complaint worsens, it is better to check yourself at the nearest health facility, yes. The doctor will determine later, what are the steps that need to be done, for example blood tests, urine tests, stool tests, ultrasound, endoscopy, x-rays, and so.
In the meantime, what should be done:
Warm compresses on your stomach that are painful, nauseous, and bloated
Eat more regularly, small portions but often
Don't eat foods that trigger nausea, such as sauce, coconut milk, chili sauce, sour fruit, fried foods, caffeine, alcohol
Drink plenty of warm water
Eat first food that is easy to swallow and digest
Take paracetamol when you feel fever and dizziness
Sleep more adequately and regularly
Exercise as much as possible every day
Do not take any medicine before seeing a doctor
Hope this helps ...
