Hello Singgih Amri.
Pain in the solar plexus can be caused by various causes. from your mother's condition, the pain in the solar plexus along with swollen feet may be caused by a congestive heart failure.
Heart failure is a condition where the heart failure fails to pump enough blood to all organs of the body. Heart failure is quite common in older people, especially in people with high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, high cholesterol levels, and a history of coronary heart disease. Heart failure can cause symptoms such as discomfort in the solar plexus, feeling like begging, nausea, swelling in the legs and stomach, shortness of breath, especially when lying down, and easily tired.
but other than that, your mother's condition can also be caused by other causes such as:
chronic kidney failure
urinary tract infection
inflammation of the bile
Therefore, to ascertain the cause of your mother's condition, it is better for your mother to go directly to a specialist in internal medicine, so that the doctor can examine your mother further. maybe later additional tests will be carried out such as blood tests, ECG, echocardiogram, or ultrasound if necessary.
Avoid consuming too much salt. Avoid consumption of fatty foods. Get enough rest, and avoid lying down right after eating. Eat small but frequent portions. Also avoid sour and spicy foods.
