Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm in advance, there are basically only 1 human stomach and its location is in the upper middle abdomen slightly protruding to the left. Therefore you should try to describe the location of the abdominal pain you feel, whether in the upper left, middle, or lower abdomen, or in the upper middle abdomen? Do you feel the pain on the inside of the stomach or on the outside (more toward the pain on the skin)? When exactly does the pain occur, is it triggered by certain foods, positions or movements, occurs at any time or does it disappear?
Abdominal pain in the left can indeed be caused by disorders of the stomach. Disturbances in the stomach itself also have various causes, for example inflammation of the stomach (gastritis), injury to the stomach (peptic ulcer), GERD or gastric acid disease, tumors / gastric cancer, etc. Pain in the left abdomen can also be caused by other things, for example:
disorders of the musculoskeletal system, such as injury to the abdominal muscles, injury to the lower ribs disorders of the heart, for example heart attacks, coronary heart disease, pericarditis disorders of the other gastrointestinal tract, such as pancreatitis, constipation, flatulence, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease disorders of the urinary tract, for example due to infection in the kidneys, stones in the kidneys of other causes, such as enlarged spleen, shingles, pleurisy, etc. To find out more clearly the cause of your pain, a physical examination must be done firsthand. If you have gone to the doctor before, you should try to go back to your doctor to be monitored for further treatment that has been given along with the symptoms that are still present, reduced, or gained weight, and your doctor can also recommend an examination additions such as EKG examination or heart rhythm record (to ensure your pain does not originate from the heart), ultrasound examination or CT scan of the abdomen, or other tests as indicated.
For now, you can try to eat more regularly, eat small amounts more often, and don't skip meals. Try to avoid consuming foods that are too spicy, too acidic, and too fatty, and avoid consuming foods that produce gas. Avoid drinking alcohol, coffee, soft drinks, and don't smoke. If you feel your abdominal pain getting worse when you work, you should try to take a short break from your work, compress the area of pain with a warm compress, and do gentle massage on the area of pain. You can also try to consume mild pain relievers such as paracetamol if your pain is very annoying.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
