Hello Nanania, Thank you for the question.
Do you mean you are menstruating? Menstruation and pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) are not the same word so the use of the word PMS is inappropriate. PMS is a group of symptoms that a woman experiences before menstruation such as prut cramps, flatulence, fatigue, mood swings, acne breakouts, and headaches. PMS occurs due to changes in reproductive hormones in the body.
Abdominal pain during menstruation is called dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea normally occurs as a result of the production of prostaglandins in the body that cause the uterus to contract to prevent excessive blood output. Normal dysmenorrhea, known as primary dysmenorrhea, usually occurs during the first 48-72 hours of menstruation, feels like cramps in the lower abdomen or waist and can radiate to the thighs. This pain will decrease with the length of menstruation. You need to be aware of menstrual pain caused by a certain medical condition, also known as secondary dysmenorrhea. The causes of secondary dysmenorrhea are endometriosis, myoma, adenomyosis, and pelvic inflammation. If you are planning a pregnancy, you should check with an obstetrician and gynecologist so that the doctor can check the health of your reproductive organs and find out whether the pain you feel when menstruating is normal pain or caused by other conditions. You can take the drugs you mention but you also have to understand that they can cause irritation to the stomach which can also trigger the upper right abdominal pain you are experiencing. You can replace the consumption of paracetamol and do a warm compress to relieve stomach cramps.
Upper right abdominal pain can also be caused by various health conditions such as stomach ulcers, stomach / intestinal ulcers, acid reflux disease, bile inflammation, gallstones, hepatitis, irritable bowel syndrome, pleurisy, kidney infections, and others. Further examination by a doctor is needed to determine the cause of your complaint. If your upper right abdominal pain does not get better, please go back to see your doctor. Also do the following advice:
avoid consuming spicy, acidic and oily foods as well as consuming caffeinated, fizzy and alcoholic drinks. Do not eat large portions of flour, please eat small portions but avoid lying down more often after eating. Keep your body weight ideal Hope it helps.
