Lower Abdomen Feels Cold And The Left Side Of The Stomach Is Hard And Throbbing?
Evening. I am 35 years old and weigh 44 kg. The stomach feels cold and the left side of the stomach is throbbing and hard. If I press the “intestines are bubbly, what is the wind?” Is it because of an irregular diet? Indeed, sometimes I eat late. Moreover, I don’t eat dinner because I have a habit of not eating dinner. Thank you

Irregular eating habits can cause the cells in your digestive tract to produce excess gas. This condition can cause discomfort in the stomach as you experience, which is like throbbing, feeling cold, hard, and bloated. Complaints will generally feel worse when your stomach is empty, when you eat foods that are too spicy or contain a lot of gas, when you take certain types of drugs (such as painkillers), when you are stressed, or when you experience hormonal fluctuations, for example during pregnancy. or before menstruation. In severe cases, you may also experience vomiting, decreased appetite, palpitations, difficulty sleeping, shortness of breath, and so on.
If the complaint really bothers you, especially if it causes sleep disturbances or drastic weight loss, you should immediately consult a doctor. That way, it can be evaluated whether there are organic abnormalities that may underlie your complaints. Some conditions to watch out for are:
Gastric or duodenal ulcers (sores resonating in the wall of the stomach or duodenum)
Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa)
Obstructive ileus (intestinal obstruction)
Gastroenteritis (infection of the digestive tract)
Intra-abdominal tumors (tumors within the abdominal cavity)
Irritable bowel syndrome
Inflammatory bowel disease, and so on
It is also possible that the doctor will recommend that you undergo further tests, such as ultrasound, endoscopy, laboratory tests, and so on. Subsequent treatment will be tailored to the conditions underlying your complaint.
At this time, you should avoid the factors that often trigger your complaint, for example in the following ways:
Eat regularly, every 5 to 6 hours (eat small but frequent portions)
When the stomach feels uncomfortable, avoid eating spicy foods and those containing a lot of gas
Also reduce caffeine (maximum 1 cup per day)
Avoid excessive stress and anxiety
Regular sleep and exercise
Don't take drugs carelessly
Compress the stomach that feels uncomfortable with warm water
Wear comfortable clothes
Do not smoke
