Stomach Ache After Eating Spicy?
I ate rice with an omelette yesterday and chili, besides that I also ate chicken steak, I was using the fan, then I was wearing a fan, and at 1 am my stomach hurts, is that a cold or corona virus? 😭☹️
Thank you for the question.
Stomach pain alone is not really a typical sign of COVID-19 (a disease due to a new Corona virus infection in 2019). More likely, if you view your information, abdominal pain arises due to dyspepsia, which is an increase in stomach acid. Consumption of spicy food is indeed one of the most frequent triggers of this condition. Not only that, dyspepsia is also often triggered by consumption of foods containing coconut milk, oily, sour fruit, high-fiber vegetables, caffeinated beverages and also fizzy. In addition to abdominal pain, dyspepsia can also cause nausea, bloating, spasms, vomiting, and many other complaints.
In addition to dyspepsia, abdominal pain as you experience it can also be caused by other factors, such as gastroenteritis, intestinal inflammation, muscle cramps, intestinal obstruction, poisoning, nerve clamps, urinary tract infections or stones, psychological disorders, and so on.
In order to improve, try to compress your warm stomach, while resting, drinking warm water, and avoiding the consumption of foods and drinks that trigger dyspepsia as mentioned above. Do not just carelessly take medicine without advice from a doctor. However, if with the above efforts your abdominal pain does not improve, try to check yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine so that it is handled well, okay?
I hope this helps.
