Pain In The Lower Abdomen Around The Urinary Area?
Doctor, I feel pain around the left lower abdomen, the pain appears around the urinary area, initially I met my sister who is a nurse, and she gave me mafenamic acid, dexamet and medicine for the wind (mint flavor) and thank God disappeared, but the pain reappeared after 2 weeks later, after I asked other friends who were nurses too, the answer was almost the same, maybe I was suffering from urinary stone disease, and immediately I drank stone, had finished one bottle, now even my genitals are very painful when urinating. Is this pain due to side effects or drug reactions?
Hello Alvicrhy, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the lower abdomen or around the urinary area can indicate a problem in the urinary tract organs from the kidneys to the urethra. Some of the causes of complaints that you feel among others:
Urinary tract infection
The drugs that you consume are mefenamic acid or dexamethasone are drugs that are used to reduce inflammation and can reduce the pain that is felt, but do not directly remove the stone if there are stones in the urinary tract. Pain when urinating is one of the signs and symptoms of disorders such as infections or stones from the urethra. Depending on the size of the stone, however, the stone may go down or out when you want to urinate and cause more pain around the genitals.
In order to be able to determine the exact cause of the complaint you are feeling, you should consult a urologist. Your doctor needs to do a direct physical examination, examination of urine analysis, ultrasound of the kidney area or other supporting examinations such as CT-Scan to see if there are infections or stones in the urinary tract. If a stone is indeed proven, then there are several options your doctor can offer depending on the size and location of the stone itself from medications to surgery.
Some things you can do to reduce your complaints among others:
Avoid the habit of holding or inviting urination (urinating)
Consuming about 2 liters of water every day
To reduce pain, you can try to consume pain relievers such as paracetamol
Hopefully this information can be useful for you and hopefully get better soon. Thank you
