Stomach Aches And Headaches Suddenly?
Hello, I want to ask. Last night I suddenly woke up because my stomach was aching in the middle. The head also feels light when you wake up. I did not feel the urge to defecate and only felt a little nausea. I experienced this a few months ago, in the early hours of the morning too. If you remember I also had dinner. So it occurred to me whether I was poisoned or what, so I was forced to urinate because I avoided vomiting. Another way that I do is just take a deep breath regularly while stroking the aching abdomen. In the morning the pain was still vague, so I was a bit afraid to do activities freely. As my explanation, please enlighten me on what I experienced. thanks.
