There is a history of fever, coughing, vomiting and your stomach is cramping right now, so this condition may be a side effect or accompanying complaint of your fever and cough. When you cough, especially a cough that has occurred several days before and is still present, your abdominal muscles will experience tension due to the coughing pressure that continues to occur. If your abdominal muscles are stiff or tense due to cough pressure, then you can feel pain in your stomach as you move, push, or cough lightly. To reduce muscle pressure that is getting heavier, then you should begin to control your cough pressure by clearing your throat as you begin to feel the stimulation of coughing and then relieving the coughing pressure little by little aided by drinking water. Don't forget to give warm compresses to the sick stomach or cramps, thus, cough pressure does not cause pain, cramps or stiffness in your stomach.
In addition, in patients with complaints of cough and fever, it can often be accompanied by indigestion or stomach disorders. This condition can cause your stomach to feel uncomfortable, arousal, nausea, vomiting and can also aggravate complaints of stomach cramps. Maintaining good food intake and maintaining drinking water intake properly and preventing the consumption of foods that are at risk can help reduce complaints of abdominal pain and vomiting. Some types of foods that you should pay attention to are limited fried foods, spicy foods, coconut foods, salty foods, instant foods and packaged drinks.
However, all this needs to be ascertained directly by your family doctor or your ENT doctor regarding complaints of cough, fever and complaints that accompany. The doctor will conduct an interview related to the course of the complaint you feel, then conduct a physical examination and supporting examinations if needed. The results of the examination will be a reference for the doctor in ascertaining the cause, whether due to strep throat, inflammation of the tonsils, pulmonary infection, irritation of the esophagus due to stomach acid, stomach disorders, or typhus. The diagnosis that is established will be a reference for doctors in providing further care and treatment. Thus, your complaints will get better and your body's condition will not be weaker.
For now, there are a number of things you need to do to prevent these complaining factors from aggravating your complaint, namely by:
1. Avoid physical fatigue
2. Avoid sleeping late at night
3. Avoid cigarettes and cigarette smoke
4. Avoid foods that irritate your digestion
5. Enough water
