Stomach Pain Recurred At Night For 7th?
Hello wr.wb nDok I am a 23 year old woman. I experience recurrent abdominal pain at night, sometimes on the left or right side of the stomach, but more often in the solar plexus, the pain radiates to the chest and even penetrates the back and waist, sometimes along with pain in the hands. Relapse almost every month. I have had this stomachache since high school grade 2, but Brani has not yet checked with the doctor for fear. When you are sick, it is usually flatulence, a hard heartburn / stiffness and pain when you press it, feeling cold but sweating, saliva outside, normal body temperature and no dizziness. nWhen I relapse, I usually compress it with hot water, if it doesn’t get better it is usually massaged and damaged by my mother’s stomach, after that iTu feels better and can fall asleep, because taking ulcer medication has no effect. nPlease explain and what should I do . nThat’s all and thank you. nWassalam
Your main complaint is heartburn. Heartburn as you feel can be caused by acid reflux disease. Acid reflux is caused by stomach acid rising into the esophagus so that complaints can arise in the form of heartburn, heartburn, the mouth feels bitter and sour, the throat feels like a lump, nausea, sometimes bad breath.
But apart from stomach acid disease, your complaints can also be caused by the following conditions:
Gastric ulcer: a wound in the stomach
Irritable bowel syndrome
Inflammation of the pancreas
Inflammation and infection of the bile
Gastric malignancy or cancer
Considering that your complaint has recurred for a long time and with over-the-counter ulcer drugs there is no improvement, I suggest that you check with your doctor directly first so that further examinations can be done to confirm the cause, if needed the doctor can suggest doing supporting tests such as Ultrasound, endoscopy, and blood tests. Then the doctor will provide the right treatment for you. Handling will be adjusted according to your condition.
Some tips you can do:
Don't eat late
Get enough rest
Drink a lot of water
Avoid spicy, sour, too oily, too fatty foods, soda, caffeine
