Hello, I am Syifa like this 3 days ago I had constipation but watery bowel movements accompanied by fever but the fever just felt after the last 3 days. After that I felt a sore stomach, pain in the lower half as well as the lower left, strangely when I eat the pain goes away but if I don’t eat the pain doesn’t go away and I want to feel nauseous. What is my pain and how can I prevent it?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Normally, adults defecate no less than 2 times a week with the consistency of soft or solid stools. The consistency of the stool can be more liquid but still normal, for example if you drink too much, eat spicy food, eat vegetables, fruit, drink caffeine, or other foods that can irritate the digestive tract. As long as the frequency of liquid bowel movements does not exceed 3 times a day, there is probably nothing you need to worry about.
The fever accompanied by pain (stinging) in the lower abdomen and nausea that feels dominant when the stomach is empty (not eating) may occur due to the following reasons:
Viral or bacterial infections, for example typhoid fever (typhoid), gastroenteritis, urinary tract infections, hepatitis
Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), can be related to gastritis, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), cholangitis (inflammation of the bile)
Hormonal changes, for example when approaching menstruation, during early pregnancy, or perimenopause
Urinary tract disorders, for example pelvic inflammation, endometriosis
Drug side effects, and so on
A fever that has lasted 3 days and pain and nausea that feels very intense should be examined directly by a doctor so that possible causes can be evaluated. For conditions that are suspected of being severe, the doctor can perform additional tests, such as blood tests, ultrasound, or others before giving you proper treatment.
In the meantime, you can first do these tips:
Drink a lot
Eat more regularly, don't delay
First reduce the consumption of foods that can irritate the digestive tract (as mentioned above)
Take paracetamol to relieve pain and fever
Compress the painful stomach with a warm compress
Not getting in the habit of holding back the urge to urinate
Reduce excessive stress
Hope it helps ..
