Pain In The Gut Until It Feels Tight?
Hello,. I want to ask. From last night my mother always presses the lower part of her chest (gut) until it is tight and cries struggling because of the pain and tightness? What should I do, doctor? Please tell me medicine or first aid in case of a disease like this.
Thank you Lia Mayang Sari for her question on the HealthReplies.com forum, pain in the gut can be caused by several conditions such as:
- gastric pains
- heart problems
- gallbladder problems
other stomach problems (such as stomach cancer)
Heartburn or also known as dyspepsia is a digestive problem characterized by pain in the upper abdomen (heartburn). This condition can be caused by several factors such as:
psychological problems (anxiety or stressful conditions)
- side effects of using drugs (such as pain relievers)
- eating oily, fatty and spicy foods
- wound on the stomach
- Helicobacter pylori infection
- eat too much and too fast
Where the symptoms of this condition can be:
- pain in the gut
- throw up
bloating (can feel like tightness)
- feel full quickly
- burning sensation in the upper stomach
In such conditions treatment can usually be given ulcer drugs such as antacids. However, in the current condition, you should still be able to bring her mother first to be examined by the related doctor to ensure the condition before she can give a proper treatment.
