Pain That Initially Feels In The Navel Then Moves To The Right Abdomen?
Good afternoon Mr / Mrs doctor, I want to ask, now I read a number of articles about the symptoms of appendicitis, and there are some that I read that happened in me, it’s been 3 days I have experienced pain in my right abdomen, initially it was in my belly button felt like it was twisted, then it seemed to move to my right abdomen, and until now it still hurts. At first I thought it was my stomach ulcer which had recurred and often took ulcer medicine, but it still hurt, even until I gave me wind oil because the longer my stomach felt cold on the skin of my stomach, and the question whether it was included symptoms of intestinal disease dead end? Is there a cure for the symptoms I’m experiencing right now ?? Honestly, I would love to see a doctor directly, but I am a typical person who cannot hear or see the results of a doctor’s diagnosis.
Hello 엔지 창,
Thank you for asking Aloodkter.
Pain that initially feels in the navel and then moves to the right abdomen can indeed be a sign of appendicitis (appendicitis). This condition can occur when the exit of the appendix which is connected to the intestine is blocked due to swollen lymph nodes, hardened stool, or other mass. Not only abdominal pain, appendicitis generally will also make you feel nauseous, vomiting, bloating, abnormal bowel movements, loss of appetite, weakness, fatigue, and even fever, chills, and other uncomfortable sensations can also appear.
However, besides appendicitis, abdominal pain as you feel it may also occur due to other triggers, for example dyspepsia, irritable bowel syndrome, food intolerance or malabsorption, gastroenteritis, food poisoning, hepatitis, infection or urinary tract stones, pre menstrual syndrome, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammation, psychosomatic disorders, muscle cramps, and so on.
To distinguish these various conditions, you need to check your complaint directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. If it is true that the doctor suspects that you have appendicitis, you will usually be directed to undergo laboratory tests, ultrasound, or other supporting tests before being given the right treatment. If the diagnosis of appendicitis has been established, definitive treatment can be done by the doctor surgery and administration of several types of drugs.
In the meantime, there are no specific steps we can recommend. However, you should increase your rest first so that the pain does not get worse. Compress the painful abdominal area with warm water, multiply also consume warm water. Eat foods that are easier to digest, for example porridge, rice broth, limit consumption of spicy foods, coconut milk, and excessive gassing. Always wear clothes that are comfortable, not too tight, and limit the exhausting physical activity first. Do not forget, make it a habit to resist the urge to defecate, urinate, and raise your legs at rest to minimize pressure on the painful stomach (for example by hanging up or propped up with a pillow).
Hope this helps ...
