Stomach Feels Tense When Pressed?
Good evening, I want to ask …
Hello Ika, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
The cause of abdominal tension can be influenced by several factors, the abdominal region itself consists of several organs such as the intestine, stomach, kidneys and so on. Where the organ in the stomach is protected from several layers namely the skin, fat layer, muscle, and other tissues.
Some conditions can cause the stomach to feel tense, for example when the stomach is pressured when it hurts, the abdominal muscles can contract and stretch so that it will feel tense when pressed. This is a natural event as a defense against the pain response. But a tense and stiff stomach can also be a sign of a medical problem such as:
Peritonitis, inflammation or irritation of the thin lining of the abdominal wall (peritoneum) caused by infection. And this condition includes dangerous conditions because the infection can spread to be life threatening.
Tetanus, a tense and rigid condition that occurs in aototo throughout the body but at the beginning of rigidity only occurs in certain areas and then can spread throughout the body due to infection with tetanus bacteria. This condition is also a serious condition and can cause fatal complications.
The above conditions are usually accompanied by other symptoms such as severe stomach pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, fever, etc. supporting examination if needed. Therefore, you should check with your doctor for further examination and treatment.
