Causes Of Upper Right Abdominal Pain To Shortness Of Breath During Menstruation?
Good afternoon, I want to ask. R nEvery menstrual period on the right upper abdomen (to be precise under the ribs on the right side) I feel pain sometimes it is so painful that it’s short of breath. I think from November last year, at that time my menstruation had an accident and was hospitalized. At that time, I started to feel the pain until I passed out and was bleeding – + 2 months. After finishing the bleeding, every period I feel pain in my upper right stomach. R nIs that natural or not?
Thank you for the question.
In the upper right stomach we have the liver, gallbladder, part of the intestine, part of the stomach, part of the pancreas, and the right kidney. During an accident, the impact can hit these organs. If there is severe pain and internal bleeding, then you may have an injury to your liver. In the liver is the gallbladder. In liver injury, the symptoms are severe pain in the upper right chest. In about 2 hours after the injury, the symptoms will increase to tenderness and a tight and hard abdomen. Often in this situation the patient loses consciousness due to bleeding in large quantities and must be taken immediately.
However, if your question is whether there is a relationship between right upper abdominal pain and the bleeding you are experiencing. There's certainly no connection.
The cause of upper right abdominal pain is most often caused by disorders of the gallbladder or gallstones. Gallstones are basically asymptomatic. Upper right abdominal pain occurs when the gallstone blocks the passage of bile. This pain appears immediately after eating fatty foods. So, it is necessary to determine the timing of the occurrence of upper right abdominal pain that you experience. As for other causes of upper right abdominal pain:
gallbladder inflammation or cholecystitis
inflammation of the pancreas or pancreatitis
liver inflammation or hepatitis
gastritis or inflammation of the stomach
During menstruation, women may experience lower abdominal pain where the uterus is. But your complaint is upper right abdominal pain during menstruation. My advice, you should consult this matter with a Gynecologist. The doctor will conduct an interview, a physical examination, and if necessary an ultrasound will be performed.
Any abdominal pain that you experience should be checked with an Internal Medicine Specialist in order to know the cause and can be treated immediately. If left untreated it can be fatal. The suggestion that can be done is to reduce oily food.
