Hello, thank you for trusting HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the abdomen can refer to many things. Abdominal pain that is easy to localize, or easy to pinpoint the location of the pain; there is also a difficult so that the patient can only estimate the area that feels uncomfortable.
Abdominal pain that is easy to locate is mostly directed at the abdominal muscles and the connective tissues of the muscles. Disorders of the abdominal muscles can occur due to excessive exercise that causes muscle pain, improper sitting or sleeping position, it can even be a sign of internal organ disorders such as appendicitis which has caused inflammation of the membranes covering the stomach. This kind of pain is usually conveyed by patients with cramping terms.
Meanwhile, abdominal pain that is difficult to localize generally leads to abnormalities in internal organs. The patient can only estimate the location of the pain, but cannot pinpoint its exact location. For example, appendicitis begins with discomfort in the solar plexus; gallbladder stones of the liver give a squeezing pain in the upper right abdominal area radiating to the waist and shoulders; inflammation of the kidneys giving complaints of low back pain; Abnormalities of the uterine organs, such as ovarian cysts, chocolate cysts, pelvic inflammatory disease, pregnancy outside the womb generally give complaints of lower abdominal pain.
Treatments that you can do at home include warm compresses, applying over-the-counter anti-inflammatory creams, taking over-the-counter pain relievers and/or neurotropic vitamins, and getting enough rest.
If the complaint has not improved, we recommend that you go to the nearest hospital. If the complaint gets worse, you should immediately go to the emergency department (IGD). Most likely the doctor will need to check your blood, abdominal ultrasound, and abdominal X-ray.
