Causes A Feeling Of Lump And Twitching Under The Stomach?
, I am a 17 year old girl. Some days I feel a lump in the lower abdomen / lower belly button. It feels a bit painful but it’s not really painful, even more painful on the first day of menstruation. It feels sometimes twitching. The point is not as usual. It happened after menstruation. My menstrual cycle is a bit long, about 40 days. So, I tried to see a gynecologist and an ultrasound. And my uterus is normal, there is no problem. but my mistake was to empty the bladder so the doctor said the results were not optimal. r nSo what should I do? I’m still not relieved. Are the results the same, when the bladder is full / empty?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The sensation of a lump, slight pain, and twitching in the lower abdomen can occur due to many factors, including:
Muscle twitching, can be related to muscle fatigue, deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals, dehydration, nervous disorders, to excessive anxiety
Intra-abdominal mass (in the abdominal cavity), can come from the reproductive organs, digestive organs, or urinary organs, for example pregnancy, myomas, intestinal tumors, bladder cancer, bladder stones
Skin infections, for example due to folliculitis, herpes zoster
Others, for example urinary tract infections, hernias, aortic aneurysms, and so on
Maybe what you are worried about is that your complaints are related to pregnancy. It's true, it's possible that having a fetus in your uterus could be causing an uncomfortable sensation in your lower abdomen. Complaints will generally be more conspicuous after a pregnancy of over 12 weeks. The pregnancy can be detected early through an ultrasound examination. It is true, this ultrasound should be done in a full bladder (not urinating) so that the exploration of the uterus can be done more optimally.
It is best if, based on the doctor's examination, there are no dangerous conditions to worry about, you don't need to worry. Try compressing the abdominal area that feels uncomfortable using warm water first. Also reduce excessive activities that involve contracting the lower abdominal muscles, for example lifting heavy weights, straining excessively, and so on. Also use clothes and pants that are not too tight in the stomach area. Drink enough, eat healthy and nutritionally balanced foods, and avoid stress.
If with the steps above the complaint still doesn't get better, there's nothing wrong with going back to the doctor for further evaluation, huh ..
I hope this helps.
