Does Excessive Vomiting Cause Intestinal Injury?
I have a history of magh. Today I was late eating and finally vomited and the vomit felt sour. And I’m getting strep throat because my stomach acid is rising. But when I vomited, it seemed that I was pushing so hard that finally my lower abdomen was aching, I looked on the internet for a lower right abdomen, the sign could be appendicitis. What causes my excessive vomiting to result in my intestinal injury or appendicitis?
Hello Aisha, Thank you for the question.
The symptoms of vomiting that you experience do not cause injury to the intestine or appendicitis but instead, the existence of disorders of the digestive tract (including the intestine and appendix) can cause symptoms of vomiting. Vomiting can be caused by several conditions such as:
gastric ulcer gastric ulcer disease gastrointestinal infection intestinal pain in the lower right abdomen that occurs after vomiting may be caused by muscle tension such as incorrect body position when vomiting occurs; unless these lower right abdominal pain symptoms occur continuously. If it continues, it needs to think about other causes such as appendicitis.
The initial treatment you can do now is try to consume antacids that are sold at pharmacies. You are also advised to consume food regularly, avoid late eating, avoid consuming spicy, sour, oily foods, avoid consuming caffeinated, fizzy, and alcoholic drinks, avoid consuming large portions of food, preferably in small portions but more often. If the symptoms of vomiting still occur for the next 2 days, please consult with your nearest GP. If symptoms of lower right abdominal pain continue until tomorrow, accompanied by fever and diarrhea, please check with the nearest general practitioner tomorrow. Further tests are needed to ascertain the cause so that proper handling can be given.
Hopefully this information helps you.
