Frequent Stomach Pain At Night In People With Hemorrhoids?
, my brother has hemorrhoids. Already taking hemorrhoid medicine and smeared with hemorrhoid ointment too. But it hasn’t healed yet. And when the bowel movements continue to bleed. In addition, towards midnight, his stomach hurt so much that he couldn’t sleep. When he was examined at the hospital, he said there was also an ulcer complication, so his stomach often hurt. How do you solve it? Currently, the drugs taken are antacids, buscopan, kalnex and ciprofloxacin. Fruit therapy is also assisted so that the bowel movements can run smoothly.
Hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids are a condition where there is widening of the veins in the anal area, causing a painful lump in the anus and sometimes bloody bowel movements. There are 4 stages of hemorrhoids and the treatment given will be adjusted to the patient's condition.
Some of the treatments for hemorrhoids are changes in healthy lifestyle and defecation drugs if needed for stage 1 hemorrhoids, actions (sclerotherapy injection, ligation, coagulation with infrared) for stages 2 and 3, and surgery for stages 3 and 4.
As for stomach ulcers, heartburn is a term used to refer to pain conditions originating from the stomach, small intestine, or esophagus. Heartburn can be caused by gastric ulcers, H pylori infection, side effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and stress.
Treatment of heartburn is by changing diet, healthy lifestyle, and medication (antacids, H2 receptor antagonists, alginates, proton pump inhibitors, prokinetics, to antibiotics and antidepressants if needed). The type of treatment will be adjusted to the cause of heartburn and the condition of each patient.
Antacids are drugs to treat heartburn. Buscopan contains hyoscine butylbromide, this drug is useful for treating stomach cramps. Kalnex contains tranexamic acid which functions to stop bleeding. Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic to treat bacterial infections.
I suggest that your brother take the medicines that are given as recommended by the treating doctor and if the medicine runs out, the complaints of abdominal pain and bloody stools have not improved, I suggest that your brother return to the doctor for control so that an evaluation can be carried out and further treatment if needed.
In addition, your brother can also do the following tips:
Drink a lot of water
Get enough rest
Try not to push when defecating
Lots of vegetables and fruit
Avoid caffeine, spicy food, too much fat
Eat less but often
Manage stress well
