Hello Mamat Rahmat,
From the complaints that you submit, now you still feel complaints of sore throat, difficult bowel movements, often belching. You have received treatment for 1 week, the possibility of being sick is longer than 1 week (the count is now sick the second week).
Complaints such as constipation (CHAPTER frequency <3 times / week, CHAPTER with feces that are hard and need to be firmly strained to be able to remove it) and often belching can be caused by abnormalities in the digestive tract. Gastrointestinal abnormalities can range from infection by bacteria, parasites, viruses, or diseases such as irritable bowel disease and intolerance of certain foods.
Try to remember again, if there are changes in diet and type of food that you consume lately. Constipation is greatly influenced by the amount of fluid intake, the amount of fiber, and the type of food you consume. Lack of body activity (mostly just sleeping, not much movement) also makes the bowel movements are not good and then constipation arises.
Tropical infectious diseases such as typhoid fever can also cause complaints of constipation in adult patients, who accompany complaints of high fever for 1-2 weeks. In diseases that infect the gastrointestinal tract, high-fiber foods are usually avoided for a while because they aggravate the symptoms of abdominal pain and nausea experienced by patients.
Sore throat most often arises due to inflammation in the area of the upper respiratory tract such as pharyngitis, laryngitis, or inflammation of the tonsils (tonsils). It can also occur in patients who experience gastric acid reflux (GERD). GERD patients can also experience complaints of burning sensation in the chest, bitter mouth / acid, often belching, dry cough.
Usually if a patient still feels a complaint after the treatment of an antibiotic, the doctor certainly recommends doing re-control. The point is to evaluate the results of treatment and double check to look for other sources and possible diseases / other diagnoses that cause patient complaints still remain. Investigations such as blood laboratories, abdominal ultrasonography, stool analysis, can help to find the right diagnosis. Appropriate treatment can be given if a definitive diagnosis already exists.
Some diseases can also have a longer course of disease. So that in the second week patients usually still experience sequelae such as weakness, indigestion. But without a direct inspection it is very difficult to determine.
Suggestions that I can give to your condition are:
Consumption of enough water, at least 8 glasses a day
Perform light activities or moderate exercise so that the bowel movement is good
Eat vegetables or fruits high in fiber
Use laxatives or stool softeners that are sold OTC (over the counter - non-prescription drugs) and use them if necessary in accordance with the instructions for use on the packaging.
Avoid consuming spicy, sour, fatty foods, drinks that are too sweet, and caffeinated drinks. Avoid foods that produce gas in the stomach such as soda, certain vegetables such as cabbage and green beans
Food portions can be smaller but frequency can be more frequent. Avoid lying down immediately after eating full.
If there are the following symptoms, you should immediately check yourself again at the doctor / health facility:
Can not be accompanied by CHAPTER can not pass gas + abdominal circumference that continues to grow + severe abdominal pain
High fever> 3 days
Sore throat accompanied by high fever (> 38 degrees Celsius) accompanied by shortness of breath (difficulty breathing, rapid breathing - short, breath sounds that sound abnormal).
