Lower Left Abdominal Pain Accompanied By Problems Of Trauma Due To Sexual Violence?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, pain in the lower left abdomen can be caused by various possibilities, including:
urinary tract infections
stones in the urethra or kidneys
inflammatory bowel disease
infections of the reproductive tract
Because there are so many possibilities, a more complete anamnesis (medical interview) and physical examination must be done first. You are advised to check with a general practitioner first to find out the direction of your illness and a general practitioner who will provide a referral to a specialist if necessary. Given the corona virus pandemic now, you are advised to see a doctor only in an emergency. If you have a high fever, you cannot defecate or fart, your stomach is very painful and the pain cannot go away with regular pain medication, your stomach gets bloated and feels hard like a board, your bowel or bladder is bleeding a lot, you experience excessive vomiting , your urine is reduced or does not come out at all. If you experience any of the above, immediately go to the hospital. For now, you can try to take mild pain relievers such as paracetamol, drink more fluids (2-3 liters a day), try to avoid eating foods that have the potential to cause gas and also irritate the digestive tract such as spicy, sour, oily foods, multiply the consumption of fiber from vegetables and fruit.
For psychological problems that you experience due to sexual violence that occurred before, you are also advised to do a check up with a psychologist or psychiatrist. But again, given the current corona pandemic, examinations are only recommended for emergencies (for example, you have suicidal ideation or you have difficulty controlling yourself so that you have a tendency to hurt yourself and others). If there is no emergency, you can try to hold yourself back until the pandemic ends, then do a check with a psychologist or psychiatrist. Meanwhile, you can try to do relaxation exercises on a regular basis such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, and meditation. Enough sleep, eat, and drink you, as well as regular exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Exercise can help you relax and reduce stress.
