Overcoming Gastric Infections In Young Pregnant Women?
Hello, I am first pregnant at the age of 10 weeks. At the same time I was identified as having a stomach infection. How do I deal with it because I often feel pain in the head, stomach and weakness.
Pain in magh often occurs and can be influenced by various things, including because of infection in the magh / stomach. Symptoms that can appear include bloating, heartburn, easy stomach full, nausea, vomiting. These complaints will certainly be very disturbing especially for pregnant women.
Gastric infection is inflammation of the stomach wall, which begins with an imbalance of stomach acid which then attacks and erodes the stomach wall. The eroded gastric wall can turn into a wound or ulcer. And if it is left unchecked, it can cause infections which are generally caused by H. pylori bacteria. Gastritis or the beginning of gastric infection can occur if the amount of stomach acid is more than the protective mucus, so that stomach acid erodes the stomach wall. If the stomach infection is very severe then the condition changes to a stomach ulcer that will be symptomatic such as pain in the lower part of the breastbone or just above the stomach, bloating, vomiting and not feeling well.
To overcome this, you should immediately consult your condition to the doctor who handled you all this time, convey any complaints that you feel so that he can evaluate from the current situation compared to your previous situation. So he can give your stomach infection treatment as early and as precise as possible. Moreover, the condition of your pregnancy which is still in the first trimester will be very susceptible to complaints around the stomach, where if these complaints are not treated as precisely as possible, it will make the body feel weak and painful over the head which will make you more disturbed.
While you can do simple things so that your complaints don't get worse, namely by:
Eat your meals in small portions but often eat slowly / not in a hurry Avoid lying down after eating, at least you wait 2 hours after eating then after lying down. Avoid eating foods that contain chocolate and mint that can relax the muscles in the esophagus Avoid eating pedassic, acidic and coffee foods Avoid drinking too much while you eat If the pain is unbearable you can use antacids to treat your complaints in the beginning before getting therapy from your doctor. So that we can convey, hopefully useful. Thanks.
