Pain In The Abdomen Below The Navel With A History Of Gastric Infection?
I have a history of gastric infection then now there is pain in the lower abdomen, navel, is that a recurrence or is it another disease?
Gastric infection is usually caused by infection with Helicobacter pylori. Helicobacter pylori is a bacteria that attacks the digestive tract, especially the stomach. Helicobacter pylori is a bacteria that is resistant to acid, so the bacteria do not die in the stomach.
H. Pylori infection can cause inflammation of the stomach wall or can even cause stomach ulcers. Inflammation of the stomach wall or commonly referred to as gastritis can cause symptoms such as pain in the upper stomach, burning and burning sensation, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite. If a stomach infection has caused gastritis, it can recur again, so the condition you experience may be due to gastritis.
But apart from that, there are several other conditions that can cause circumstances like yours:
inflammation of the appendix / appendicitis
Therefore, to determine the cause of the condition you are experiencing, you should see a doctor directly, so that the doctor can check your condition firsthand. Maybe later additional tests such as blood tests, ultrasound, or endoscopy will be carried out if necessary.
avoid excessive stress. Don't eat spicy and sour foods. Eat on a regular schedule.
