Stomach Is Often Bloated And Sounds Like A Hungry Person?
I want to ask, my stomach is often bloated lately, my stomach often sounds like I’m hungry even though I’m not hungry, and it’s hard to defecate but when *sorry* the stool comes out, the texture of the stool is not too hard and still soft. What disease do you think I have?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A bloated stomach, frequent sounds, difficulty defecating, but also often difficulty controlling the urge to defecate can be a sign of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The exact cause of this condition is still unknown. However, several factors, such as stronger muscle contractions in the intestines, abnormalities of the nervous system that regulates bowel function, inflammation in the intestines, infections, changes in the balance of normal flora in the intestines, consumption of certain foods, stress, and hormonal changes (eg when approaching a schedule) menstruation) can be a trigger.
As a result of IBS, sufferers can experience a series of complaints as you experience. In fact, you can also find abdominal pain, cramps, twisting, frequent urination, and slimy stools. In most cases, this condition can be mild and improve with a healthy lifestyle, but it can also feel so burdensome to the sufferer that it reduces the quality of life.
In addition to IBS, your complaints can also arise due to other causes, such as gastroenteritis (intestinal infection), cholangitis (inflammation of the gallbladder), cholelithiasis (gallstones), celiac disease, pancreatitis, colon cancer, thyroid gland disorders, hypercalcemia, inflammatory diseases. intestines, (inflammatory bowel disease), ulcerative colitis, food poisoning, food malabsorption, and so on.
How long have you experienced the above complaints? Has it been more than 3 days? Does it bother you so much that it reduces your appetite?
If so, you should not let your complaints drag on. Check directly with your doctor so that it is clear what triggers your complaints. That way, treatment can be carried out appropriately according to the underlying cause, for example by administering drugs, or perhaps also through further examinations, such as laboratory, ultrasound, colonoscopy, and so on.
You can first take the steps below so that the complaint improves:
Eat at the same time every day 3 to 5 times a day, with moderate portions Limit consumption of spicy, oily, coconut milk, root vegetables Limit caffeine consumption Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol Make sure the food you consume is processed clean Don't snack randomly Drink lots of warm water Rest regularly Don't take any drugs Don't hold back the urge to defecate Hope this helps..
