Stomach Pain When Pressed Accompanied By Liquid Bowel Movements, Vomiting, And Cold Sweat?
Good evening, .. I want to ask my mom, 47 years old. My mom has an ulcer. But this time it’s been over a week or so. The initial symptoms of abdominal pain (diarrhea), then two days later became vomiting, every time I press my mother’s stomach there is something like jumping on my mother’s stomach (but usually this is when my mom’s stomach ulcers recur), always cold sweat, sleep patterns must also be supine, if tilted even hurt his stomach. So what should I do?

Heartburn is a term that is often used for conditions or diseases involving the stomach, such as dyspepsia syndrome, gastritis, or GERD. Symptoms that often appear in these conditions are heartburn, nausea, vomiting, sometimes feels acidic or bitter at the base of the tongue, and burning pain in the chest. However, pain in this disease is usually not related to sleeping position, but more often related to diet, for example before eating, or even after eating, or after eating foods that are acidic or spicy.
However, because abdominal pain is a common symptom that can occur in many other conditions, we should not conclude that suffered only ulcer disease before doing a more complete examination. Apart from the diseases that I mentioned above, there are several other conditions that can cause symptoms like the ones you mentioned, including:
Gastroenteritis. This disease can be caused by the entry of germs (viruses, bacteria, fungi) in the digestive tract and causes inflammation of the stomach and intestines, causing symptoms such as watery stools (diarrhea), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, sometimes accompanied by fever. Gallstones. This condition often occurs in women, especially in their 40s. Other risk factors are overweight, and fertile status (having had one or more children). Typical symptoms are abdominal pain (more often on the upper right), nausea, vomiting, and if the bile duct has become blocked and inflamed it can also be accompanied by fever and skin discoloration and the eye lining becomes yellowish. Liver abscess, a collection of pus that occurs in the liver (liver) due to bacterial infection. The symptoms that can arise in this disease are right abdominal pain, fever, and enlarged liver (when touched / physical examination). Intestinal polyps, which form lumps in the large intestine, which cause symptoms of watery bowel movements, sometimes mixed with blood, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and anemia. etc. Therefore, I advise you to check your mother to a general practitioner or specialist in internal medicine, so that further tests can be carried out to establish a definitive diagnosis or to rule out other diseases that can have dangerous effects if late known and treated. Investigations that can be done are such as laboratory blood tests, abdominal ultrasound, CT scan, endoscopy / gastroscopy, and others.
The things your mother can do right now are:
Set a good diet. Preferably with small portions but frequent frequency. Avoid consuming foods that are too spicy or too acidic Avoiding cigarettes and alcohol Reducing fatty foods Adequate rest Consumption of adequate amounts of water (at least 2L) If stomach pain cannot be tolerated, you can try anti-pain medications that have the green logo and are sold freely at the pharmacy . However, always be careful in the use of pain medications in the long run, because it can obscure the symptoms and diagnosis of a doctor. If complaints of pain still often arise despite using drugs, do not hesitate to consult a doctor. The danger signs that you should be aware of are: lower right abdominal pain, fever for more than 3 days, skin discoloration or eye membranes becoming yellowish, severe abdominal pain that does not improve with anti-pain, heart palpitations, bowel mixed with blood or black, etc. In this condition, check with the Emergency Department immediately at the nearest hospital.
Thus, hopefully can help.
