Pain In The Left Abdomen, Accompanied By Coughing And Runny Nose?
Excuse me, I want to ask, it’s been almost 2 weeks that my mother is experiencing pain in the left abdominal area. She was once consulted by the family doctor. She was only given a few medicines (I forgot any medicines). What disease do you think is affecting my mother? r nThank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the left abdomen, accompanied by coughing and colds, often indicates inflammation of the respiratory tract, can be due to allergies, viral infections, bacterial infections, or also irritation, for example due to sucking in smoke or other chemical substances. As a result of inflammation in the respiratory tract, mucus production in the walls of the airways will increase so that coughs and colds appear. Excessive abdominal muscle contractions when coughing can trigger pain in your stomach.
Aside from coughing during inflammation of the respiratory tract, left abdominal pain can also occur due to other reasons, for example:
Gastrointestinal disorders, such as dyspepsia, gastroenteritis, food poisoning, intolerance
Urinary tract disorders, such as stones or infections
Dermatomusculoskeletal disorders, for example skin infections, muscle aches
Mental disorders, and so on
If it's true that your mother's complaints have been going on for weeks, we recommend that you take your mother to check her complaints directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. The doctor will conduct a thorough physical evaluation specifically in the area of your mother's abdomen and respiratory tract. That way, doctors can generally identify the right treatment to do. If a more serious condition is suspected, the doctor may also carry out further examinations, for example x-rays, ultrasound, laboratory tests, and so on.
So that your mother's complaints improve, you can first compress his painful stomach with warm water. Remind your mother not to overeat foods that are too spicy and contain a lot of gas. Don't let your mother eat too late, feed her little but often. So that coughs and colds do not gain weight, prevent your mother from consuming foods that are cold and excessively oily, and do not come into contact with cold, dust, smoke, pollution, and other substances that can trigger inflammation in the respiratory tract. Encourage your mother to exercise so that the risk of experiencing muscle pain is reduced.
Hope this helps ...
