Causes Of Moving Abdominal Pain?
Hello, r nI want to ask a question I have a lot of pain in my stomach. Sometimes the pain moves, sometimes the upper abdomen or the right and left. Sometimes it is in the middle of my stomach more precisely at the navel. Sometimes on the lower right side of my stomach. But the pain sometimes appears, sometimes it doesn’t. I thought maybe it was just a normal heartburn. But seeing the symptoms I was afraid it was appendicitis. I hope doctors can read it. Thank you in advance.
thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Abdominal pain that often appears and moves, namely above, right, left, center, or below, there are many possible causes. Including appendicitis (appendicitis).
Appendicitis occurs when the appendix, which is the part of the digestive tract located in the lower right abdominal cavity, becomes inflamed. The most common trigger is due to a blockage in the channel that connects the appendix to the intestine, either due to hardened feces (fecalith) or swollen lymph nodes. As a result, the appendix can swell, feel pain, and drain pus that has accumulated in its lumen. This condition, initially will make sufferers experience pain around the navel. Then, this pain will slowly move to the lower right abdomen, accompanied by nausea, decreased appetite, bowel disorders, and various other complaints, such as fever, vomiting, weakness, cold sweat, and so on.
However, as mentioned above, there are many other conditions that can trigger abdominal pain to move as you experience, including:
Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid)
Irritable bowel syndrome
Inflammation of the intestine
Pre menstrual syndrome
Peritonitis, and so on
Therefore, if your complaint recurs very often, you need to get it checked directly to a doctor. A diagnosis of the cause of abdominal pain can generally be made simply by means of an interview and a regular physical examination. However, in more severe conditions, supporting examinations can also be done, for example x-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, blood tests, urine tests, stool tests, and so on. If further treatment is needed, the doctor can also refer you to a specialist in internal medicine.
As an initial handling, you try to do the following:
Calm yourself down, don't have too many distracting thoughts
Use a warm compress when your stomach feels sore, gently press it on the painful abdominal area
Always wear comfortable clothes, not too tight
Get used to eat regularly, reduce foods that are too spicy, contain lots of gas, and don't snack carelessly
Drink lots of warm water
Stay away from alcohol consumption
Hope it helps ..
