Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Constipation (constipation) can cause various uncomfortable sensations in the stomach, ranging from bloating, gasping, tight, hard, twisted, throbbing, and so on. This constipation can occur due to many factors, ranging from not drinking enough, rarely consuming fiber, lack of movement, often holding back the urge to defecate, drug side effects, psychological pressure, to a disease, such as hypothyroidism, large muscle cancer, stroke, spinal cord injury, and so on.
The question is, how long has it been since you had a bowel movement? Is it up to more than 1 week? So, are there any other complaints you experience, such as vomiting, severe stomach pain, difficulty passing gas, drastic weight loss, lumps in the stomach, and so on?
If constipation has only occurred for less than 1 week, and you have none of the above complaints, then apart from constipation, your complaints can also be triggered by other factors, for example:
Functional dyspepsia (increased stomach acid that is not clearly known to be the trigger)
Gastritis, stomach ulcers (inflammation or injury to the stomach)
Cholangitis (inflammation of the bile)
Gastric cancer (malignant tumor in the stomach)
Irritable bowel syndrome
Inflammation of the intestine
Appendicitis (inflammation of the appendix)
Food malabsorption or intolerance
Abnormalities in organs other than the gastrointestinal tract, for example ovarian cysts, myomas, psychosomatic disorders, and so on
You should check with your doctor directly so that you can handle your complaint appropriately. Usually, not only a physical examination, the doctor will also recommend that you undergo additional tests, for example blood tests, X-rays, ultrasound, colonoscopy, and so on to detect possible dangerous diseases.
You can first go through some of the efforts below so that the complaint gets better:
Reduce consumption of foods or drinks that trigger the production of a lot of gas in the digestive tract, for example tubers, cabbage, mustard greens, caffeine, soda, chocolate
Also reduce the consumption of spicy and oily foods
Don't stress too much
Drink more than 1.5 to 2 liters per day
Compress the flatulence and discomfort with warm water
Do not massage the bloated stomach
Get active, do sports, don't stay silent too much
Stay away from alcohol
Hope it helps ..
