The Right Stomach Aches If You Don’t Take Pain Medication From A Doctor?
Night, I married. Two days ago I checked into a clinic. The clinic doctor said I pulled my chest muscles, but after that the doctor said that within two days I still felt pain in the right side of the stomach. I was given a referral letter to go to the pulmonary clinic for further examination. In two days I didn’t have the same pain as before. But today, I felt the pain again so I couldn’t do any activities. Please explain, what disease do I have?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the right abdomen can be caused by many conditions, including one due to muscle pain (myalgia). This muscle pain is actually most often caused by improper posture when doing daily movements, for example when lifting heavy weights, while sleeping, and so on. Lazy exercise habits, frequent repetitive movements, deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals, fibromyalgia, aging, and various other medical conditions can contribute to this condition. This muscle pain is probably what doctors mean by a pulled chest muscle.
Apart from being a result of muscle pain, it can also be pain in the right side of the stomach as you experience it due to other causes, for example:
Lung disorders, such as pleurisy, pneumonia, bronchitis
Gastric disorders, such as gastritis, gastric ulcers
Bile duct disorders, such as cholangitis, cholelithiasis, cholecystitis
Pancreatic disorders, such as pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis
Liver disorders, such as hepatitis
Intestinal disorders, sepetri gastroenteritis, obstructive ileus, appendicitis
Urinary tract disorders, such as stones or urinary tract infections
Reproductive tract disorders, such as ovarian cysts, endometriosis, pre-menstrual syndrome, myoma, disturbed ectopic pregnancy
Psychosomatic disorders, and so on
You should follow your doctor's advice to check back with your doctor if you feel the complaint gets worse. If deemed necessary, doctors can perform x-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, laboratory examinations, and so on to determine the best treatment.
For now, first relieve the pain by getting plenty of rest, compressing the sore side of the stomach with warm water and eating more regularly. Be more careful in observing what often worsens the pain. Once identified, avoid things that make the pain worse, for example, by eating less spicy food, limiting fatty foods, reducing heavy lifting, and so on. Calm your mind, and do as much exercise as you can to minimize the risk of muscle disorders.
Hope it helps ..
