Causes Of Hard Stomach?
, I’m a 22 year old girl. The last time I had my period was on January 12 yesterday, after finishing my period, I felt hard and bloated in my stomach, sometimes I felt something in my lower left abdomen. My stomach swells and feels bloated, I often burp and pass gas, and it becomes difficult to pass stool. There is tenderness in the abdomen near the navel. How so, what disease do I really feel?
Hello sister Emma, complaints of feeling bloated in the stomach, frequent vomiting, passing wind, difficulty in defecating, palpable hardened parts and pain in the middle of the abdomen seem to have less specific symptoms, can be symptoms of several diseases such as: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Constipation, Ileus due to hypokalemia (impaired bowel movements due to low potassium), and dyspepsia (indigestion). The hard and palpable part in the lower left abdomen can be feces or feces, if you can pass the wind but it is difficult to have a bowel movement can indicate that there is a bowel movement but not strong enough to expel feces, bloating and belching can indicate indigestion. What you need to watch out for is middle abdominal pain that radiates to the lower right abdomen, severe abdominal pain that is getting bigger, not defecating and passing wind, and accompanied by fever which requires immediate treatment at a more complete health facility. Meanwhile, what can be recommended is to make lifestyle changes such as eating high-fiber foods, drinking enough water 1.5-2 L a day, moving activities to help bowel movements, consuming coconut and banana water, eating cooked and cleanly managed foods, avoiding products food allergies, consumption of fermented foods. If the situation does not improve, it is recommended that you check your condition with an internal medicine specialist and carry out examinations such as potassium or blood electrolyte examinations and ultrasound if necessary.
