Flatulence often causes a painful sensation. If your stomach acid reflux disease (GERD) has been resolved properly, if complaints of stomach discomfort still arise, you should pay attention to a number of things that might cause it:
The habit of eating too fast, drinking in a hurry.
Irregular bowel movements.
Excessive body weight / obesity.
Inflammatory bowel disease / Colitis, colon disorders (Irritable Bowel Syndrome / IBS)
More serious medical conditions such as gastrointestinal infections, fluid buildup in the abdominal cavity due to cancer, liver disease, kidney failure, congestive heart failure, and pancreatic dysfunction.
Celiac disease, an autoimmune condition that occurs in the digestive tract, where all foods / drinks that contain a compound contained in gluten, can cause an inflammatory reaction because the body is mistakenly recognized as a dangerous substance. Symptoms in adults are often not related to gastrointestinal complaints.
From the information you write down, you have undergone a series of medical examinations and the doctor has carried out a medical evaluation, provided a diagnosis and therapy. If the complaints you feel are still very disturbing, going back to the doctor is certainly the best way.
If you have difficulty in language, use the application / website available on the smartphone for Indonesian translation into the language where you live. The local doctor will definitely try to read and understand your complaint. Write down the complaints you have been experiencing at home before seeing the doctor so that time is used effectively in the doctor's office.
Bring all your past medical examination documents with you. Compile documents on the results of medical examinations, treatments that have been given based on time, including the place of health services and the doctor who helped you so far (if you change clinics / hospitals / doctors).
But while at home, try to practice the following lifestyle:
Avoid chewing gum, eating cabbage and the like, nuts and soft drinks. All of this will trigger the stomach to become bloated.
Pay attention to whether milk and its derivatives also trigger gastrointestinal complaints after consumption. If so, avoid all types of food and drinks that contain milk.
If you are overweight or obese, try to slowly and healthily reduce the weight to the normal category.
Exercise diligently and consistently. Exercise helps the digestive tract move so that gas in the colon does not accumulate.
Get enough sleep, especially at night, at least 7 hours a day.
Digestive problems can be related to fatigue and emotional problems. Try to adopt a healthy lifestyle even better.
