Muscle Cramps Accompanied By Vomiting And Diarrhea After Eating Late?
Excuse me docs I have a history of heartburn, on Tuesday March 26 morning I did not eat then went to campus when I returned to campus immediately lay down. I haven’t eaten anything since morning until I wake up, usually I have a strong stomachache due to stomach ulcers. At night around 7 I take a shower I think my body has a fever but I still go out looking for food, I only eat around set time at 8 pm and only a few bites because of nausea due to not being able to eat from morning. Then midnight around set 1 time my stomach hurts once , my head is a bit dizzy. I vomited accompanied by diarrhea, vomited as much as 5 times every 10-15 minutes. At dawn around the set hour 5 my stomach was no longer painful but my whole body was cramped, like a muscle spasm. Especially the parts of my hands and feet. Everything feels stiff, my face feels thick and from the legs until the stomach feels cramped and it hurts a lot. My arms and legs bend themselves. After being taken to the hospital I was injected with pain relievers and given oxygen. Then my muscle spasms subsided. was given the drug Doloneurobion and Valisanbe 2 MG. But the doctor didn’t tell me about my illness and I also forgot to ask. The doctor only asked me how I felt if I had been like this before and whether I had a history of stomach acid. I answered yes I had been cramped like this 4 years ago and at least I had to injected or not infused half a new bottle of muscle spasms subsided.
Good evening, thanks for the question
The condition you are experiencing with a history of minimal food intake, accompanied by vomiting and diarrhea may be caused by a condition of electrolyte disturbance. Electrolytes are charged components that have many functions in the human body. Electrolyte disturbances that occur can be in the form of deficits or excess electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, mangnesium, calcium, phosphate.
Impaired electrolyte balance either due to lack of dietary intake or the amount of body fluid that comes out can cause mild to severe symptoms and is life threatening.
Symptoms of electrolyte disturbances can include:
1. Impaired heartbeat
3 Unstable blood pressure
4. Nervous system disorders
5. Sensory disorders
6. Muscle spasms
7. Nausea and vomiting
Muscle cramps to spasms can occur because electrolytes are useful in the mechanism of muscle contraction. Treatment of cases of electrolyte disorders depends on the type of disorder experienced. The goal of treatment is to normalize the electrolyte balance in the body. If the case is severe lying, then electrolyte correction must be done quickly, for example by administering electrolytes through an IV line to prevent more severe complications. However, if it is classified as mild, some cases can be treated with oral medication.
In the future, you should be more disciplined about eating well and regularly to avoid similar incidents from happening again. If complaints are still felt you should re-do the control with a doctor to get adequate treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
