I want to ask, last December I had diarrhea, after recovering in February I even had constipation until now. I have checked with the doctor and diagnosed with chronic constipation and there is a skin tag on the anal. But this month I have diarrhea again and my stomach feels really sore. What do you have to do, last month my stomach didn’t hurt, but this month it was really painful. Please help.
Stomach pain accompanied by diarrhea, can be caused by many things. Here are some possible causes:
Heartburn, is a mild digestive disorder that can be caused by diet, physical fatigue, emotional stress.
Gastrointestinal infections due to viruses / bacteria.
Peptic ulcer, sores in the stomach and intestines of 12 fingers.
Gallbladder infection / stones in the gallbladder.
Crohn's disease, is a condition where there is inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract that is triggered by poor immune conditions, heredity, past infections and smoking.
Irritable bowel syndrome, a collection of gastrointestinal symptoms that occur over a period of more than 3 months, in the form of abdominal pain, flatulence and changes in bowel habits (from diarrhea to constipation and vice versa).
Premenstrual syndrome, due to hormonal fluctuations can cause digestive complaints.
Drug side effects.
We recommend that you go back to the Internal Medicine Specialist to investigate what causes recurrent indigestion that occurs in the long term. The doctor will ask about your complaints and medical history, perform a physical examination and, if necessary, refer you to supporting examinations such as blood tests, stool analysis and colonoscopy.
From the results of the medical evaluation, the doctor will provide treatment steps that are appropriate for your physical condition.
To treat stomach pain, you can consume ginger in the form of a drink / eat it immediately, avoid foods that trigger diarrhea / stomach aches such as spicy, fried, fatty / coconut milk, and warm compresses to the area of the stomach that feels sick.
