Hi Yana,


Abdominal pain is a condition where there is pain or discomfort between the chest and pelvis. Abdominal pain is a complaint that can occur every day and can be caused by various things, both mild and severe. The following are some conditions that can cause abdominal pain in the lower left side:

Injury or trauma to the stomach
Impaired absorption of food, for example lactose intolerance (the body cannot digest lactose)
Gastrointestinal disorders such as gastrointestinal infections (gastroenteritis), inflammation of the intestines (colitis), inflammation of the diverticulum (diverticulitis)
Due to irritable bowel syndrome or celiac disease

Intestinal obstruction (obstruction), can be caused by food, foreign objects such as worms or intestinal disorders
Abdominal pain before menstruation
Constipation
Urinary tract infection
etc

Complaints of headaches that you experience can indeed be caused by abdominal pain that occurs, however, this condition can also be caused by headaches (migraines) or cluster headaches.


You should first check with your doctor to determine the cause of your complaint and get appropriate treatment for the cause. The doctor will ask for a history of your complaints, perform a physical examination or supporting examinations such as abdominal ultrasound, urine analysis or gastrointestinal binoculars (endoscopy) to determine the cause of your complaint.


Do the examination if it is recommended by your doctor because the examination can help the doctor to confirm dangerous conditions such as intestinal obstruction.


If the complaint is caused by gastroenteritis, the doctor will prescribe an appropriate antibiotic according to the causative bacteria and prescribe medicines to reduce pain complaints such as paracetamol or spasmolytic drugs (anti-muscle spasms that can cause abdominal pain).


In addition to doctor's treatment, you can also do the following suggestions to overcome your complaints:

Avoid strenuous physical activity, rest immediately if complaints arise during activities
Get enough rest
Increase water consumption
You can take paracetamol to help reduce your stomach aches and headaches
Avoid consuming foods and drinks that can irritate the digestive tract such as spicy, fatty foods, coconut milk, etc
Immediately consult a doctor if the complaint persists or worsens
