Not defecating tightness and worse each time you want to defecate very tightness felt at all
Hello Dyah Eka,
The frequency of bowel movements for each person can be different, but if there is a drastic change in the frequency of bowel movements, for example from every day to every 4-5 days there is certainly a factor that must be found out the cause. The reduced frequency of bowel movements up to <3 times a week can be called constipation. In addition to decreasing the frequency of bowel movements, constipation is also characterized by hard stools, it needs to be hardened to remove stools, feeling incomplete after bowel movements.
Some of the factors causing constipation include:
Type of diet consumed, lack of fiber, not enough drinking water Lack of activity, people who tend to just lay down The following diseases: Irritable bowel syndrome Hypothyroids Neurological diseases, including Parkinson's disease Bowel stricture (narrowing of the intestinal diameter due to scar tissue) Cancer of the digestive tract For example, colon cancer. Mental disorders: depression, anxiety disorders Certain medications: diabetes drugs, hypertension drugs, antidepressants, etc. When constipation can also occur complaints of flatulence that causes a feeling of tightness, due to pressure in the abdominal cavity that urges the diaphragm (moving layer up and down when breathing, separate the pulmonary cavity with the abdominal cavity). In addition, if there is a total blockage in the digestive tract, for example due to a tumor, in addition to stool cannot come out, the gas also cannot come out, the patient's stomach will get bigger and abdominal pain will increase. Forcing straining can create a Valsalva maneuver that causes heart rate down and blood pressure drops dramatically, until fainting.
In your mother's case, have you seen a doctor? The doctor needs to ask more fully about the history of complaints that arise, the duration of the complaint, history of previous illnesses, history of treatment that has been obtained, accompanying symptoms. The doctor needs to ask these things, to see whether there is a relationship between the symptoms that exist in your mother: for example, shaking (tremor), difficult bowel movements, headaches with one disease or due to different and unrelated diseases.
The doctor also needs to do a physical examination, including vital signs such as blood pressure, breathing rate, pulse, and your mother's body temperature. A complete physical examination is needed to assess the presence or absence of physical abnormalities that are typical in certain diseases. Digital rectal examination may also be needed to assess rectal abnormalities associated with difficult bowel complaints. Investigations such as abdominal x-ray, blood laboratory, ultrasonography, colonoscopy, CT-scan may be needed for diagnosis if a disease that causes constipation is suspected.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
