Fever, Diarrhea Accompanied By A Lump And Pain In The Stomach?
Hello, my name is Yemima, a 20-year-old woman, Tuesday, I have 39 u0026deg fever; accompanied by diarrhea and potassium deficiency. At this time, the fever is cured, but diarrhea continues. But I am confused, every time I change position, like sitting and standing, there is something strange in my stomach, like there is a wind that holds, so I am very in pain to stand. I guess what illness I have and what is the solution?
Thank you for the question.
Fever, diarrhea, accompanied by a lump and pain in the stomach usually occurs when your digestion is disturbed, such as infection (for example typhus, hepatitis, dysentery, intestinal worms), intestinal inflammation, food allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, food malabsorption, poisoning, benign tumors or malignant, dyspepsia, and so on. When you have diarrhea, lots of fluids and electrolytes (including potassium) will be removed from the body. Therefore, you will be prone to dehydration and electrolyte balance disorders, including hypokalemia (low potassium levels). This condition needs to be treated further by a doctor. Because, if not treated early, more severe complications can arise, including impaired heart function, weakness, nerve disorders, and even death.
In addition to being influenced by the conditions above, a lump and pain in your stomach can also be caused by peritonitis, urinary tract infections or stones, side effects of drugs, pre menstrual syndrome, psychological disorders, and many other possibilities.
Better, check yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine so that it is clear what kind of treatment is appropriate to resolve your complaint. Blood tests, stool tests, ultrasound, or maybe other investigations can also be recommended by your doctor.
In the meantime, don't just take medicine carelessly if it's not recommended by your doctor. Safer, you first resolve your complaint by:
Drink plenty of water, especially water and ORS. Do not indiscriminate snacks, let alone eat and drink that is doubtful about cleanliness and maturity. Expand your heat. Warm up your stomach that feels uncomfortable. Live a healthy lifestyle in your daily life. Hope it helps.
