Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
There are several possibilities that can trigger symptoms of flatulence accompanied by abdominal pain when pressed, including:
Inflammation in the stomach or intestine, symptoms usually in the form of flatulence, pain in the solar plexus and the surrounding area, sensation of discomfort in the stomach, abdominal sensation, abdominal sensation feels full quickly when eating, often belching, nausea, vomiting
Gastrointestinal infections, where bacteria that infect the gastrointestinal tract can ferment food that is not absorbed by the intestine and produce excess gas so that the stomach becomes bloated
Consumption of too much food / drinks that produce gas, for example: durian, broccoli, soda, cabbage
In order to get an evaluation and proper treatment, we recommend that you check directly with your doctor or specialist in internal medicine. In addition to the history and physical examination, the doctor may plan a supplementary examination if there are indications, for example: blood tests, abdominal X-rays, or ultrasound (USG). As a suggestion, you should implement the following steps:
Avoid consumption of food / drinks that produce gas
Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day
Consumption of nutritionally balanced and hygienic foods, with smaller portions and more frequent frequencies (small, frequent feeding)
Manage stress well
