Stomach Ache And Nausea While Sleeping On His Stomach?
I am 17 years old when I sleep on my stomach, my stomach hurts and feels nauseous like I want to vomit, why?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Emphasis in the abdominal area when sleeping on your stomach (stomach) can indeed cause uncomfortable sensations, such as pain or nausea. These complaints usually feel better if you have eaten a lot, especially foods that contain a lot of gas, before.
However, if only because of the influence of the pressure and type of food you consume, the pain and nausea that you feel does not last long, and will improve by itself if you change your position, for example sitting, lying with your head and chest raised. Have you done it this way?
If your complaint still does not improve in the manner above, you should consult yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. It could be, abdominal pain and nausea that you feel due to digestive disorders (for example due to dyspepsia, infections, allergies, intolerance, malabsorption, food poisoning, inflammation of the intestine), hormonal disorders (for example before menstruation or when you are pregnant), psychological disorders (for example excessive anxiety, panic attacks), side effects of drugs, infections of other organ systems, and so on.
In order for stomach pain and nausea to subside:
Don't sleep on your stomach
Compress the stomach with warm water
Avoid using clothes that are too tight in the stomach area
After eating, give a break 2-3 hours before sleeping or lying down
Limit first eating foods that are acidic, spicy, contain a lot of gas, oily, coconut milk, also caffeinated drinks
Do not carelessly take medication before seeing a doctor
Hope this helps ...
