Causes Cause Pain In The Upper Abdomen?
hello, I feel pain in the upper abdomen, since this afternoon before eating and until after eating it still hurts too. I wonder why?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the upper abdomen can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from digestive disorders, muscular and joint disorders, respiratory disorders, heart problems, psychological disorders, and so on. Ascertain the cause of this pain certainly can not be easily done only based on a brief description as you mentioned. You need to see yourself first directly to the doctor so that the treatment given can be right on target.
Here are some of the most common causes of upper abdominal pain:
Indigestion: gastritis, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastric ulcer, cholangitis, pancreatitis
Muscle and joint disorders: rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, nerve clamps
Respiratory disorders: pleurisy, pneumonia, bronchitis, pulmonary tuberculosis
Others, for example pericarditis, somatoform disorders, and so on
The question now, besides pain, are there any other complaints that you feel? Do you also have fever, vomiting, bowel movements, coughing, spasms, and so on?
If only pain appears, try to overcome the pain by using warm water compresses. Balance these efforts with plenty of rest, regular exercise, regular eating, drinking enough, and not too much physical activity. Also reduce consumption of foods that are too spicy, oily, and contain a lot of gas, and do not smoke so that the pain does not get worse.
However, if the steps above have not been successful in overcoming your pain, do not delay to see yourself directly to the doctor or specialist in internal medicine so that the best treatment is given huh ..
I hope this helps.
