Stomach Feels Wrapped Around And Lumbago Like Being Stabbed?
I was 25 years old, exactly 8 days ago in the morning I experienced abdominal pain and twisted right waist pain like being stabbed, I also vomited twice. As an illustration on the previous day I ate 2X with a spicy menu both. Well at first I thought my stomach was wrapping due to the effect of spicy eating the previous day, while my waist was pricked I thought the veins were squeezed or something so as a follow-up in the evening I went to the masseuse, from the masseur I got information that my stomach was swollen, the next day I did the examination at a general practitioner, the doctor’s info was okay even the doctor suggested not need to spend the drug (sincronik tramadol hydrochloride paracetamol and omeprazole). But after I took the medicine even until it was finished (the medicine is 4 seeds each) until now, my back pain often recurred, especially if I do a lot of activities at work, friends advised me to do an X-ray to find out exactly what the pain was so that it was not mistakenly treated but I got information that radiation on X-rays can trigger cancer even though it is very unlikely. My question is whether from my statement the doctor got a picture of me what illness? And is taking the X-ray appropriate with the risk? Please respond 🙏🙏🙏
Hello, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Lumbago can be caused by a variety of possibilities, namely:
- Injury to the muscles or joints in the lumbar region
- Overweight / obesity
- Lack of exercise
- Inflammation of the spinal joints
- Disorders of the spinal arch, such as bisphosis, lordosis or atacoliosis
- Pinched nerve
- Erosion of the spinal cushions due to the aging process.
- Symptoms of an illness such as kidney stones, infection of the kidney
- and others.
Your complaint certainly can be caused by various things, to find out the cause you should do further examination with a doctor. The doctor will do some examinations first, if it is needed to do additional examinations (such as x-rays) then the doctor will refer you to X-rays. We recommend that you do an X-ray according to the indications / suggestions from the doctor after the first examination.
Here's what you can do at home: consume enough water, avoid lifting heavy objects, get enough rest, maintain your ideal body weight, exercise regularly, increase fruit and vegetable consumption, avoid consumption of cigarettes and alcoholic drinks.
Thank you, hope that helps.
