Pain In The Left Abdomen Is Dangerous?
Hello doctor, my left abdomen under the bone lately has been stinging and sometimes it comes to the back like aches .. I’ve been to the doctor and given stomach medicine, and don’t eat spicy anymore … symptoms for what kind of disease is this? Is it dangerous?
Hi Charlene .. Thank you for the question.
Pain in the left abdomen can be caused by several things, for example:
Increased gastric acid
Gastritis / inflammation of the stomach
Pain during menstruation
Pain in the left abdomen can cause discomfort, and can also be accompanied by complaints such as nausea, vomiting, heartburn, chest heat, interference with urination, pain that penetrates to the back of the back. If there are complaints like this, the complaint does not improve, so you should see a doctor in internal medicine. So the doctor can do a direct examination and if necessary can be followed by an ultrasound of the abdomen, internal medicine, endoscopy. While some things that you can do are:
Eat regularly, it's better to eat smaller portions but more often
Avoid spicy, sour, sour foods, which contain caffeine, soft drinks
Avoid psychological stress because it can increase stomach acid
Inadequate daily water needs
