Uncomfortable On The Stomach And Difficult BAB?
I have permission to ask. My mother in the past 3 months has had difficulty defecating / defecating. He had a stomachache 7 years ago, and he didn’t feel any pain anymore. After that, 3 years ago, he felt discomfort in the stomach again, so he ate only a little with rice made like porridge for months. It also did not last long, and after that can eat rice as usual again. For the past 4 months, I have been back again, feeling a stomach that feels solid, has difficulty defecating, and is uncomfortable in the stomach and hands and feet which are often cold. If for example farting, his body feels somewhat better. My mother had also experienced a fall in the bathroom and was injured in the tailbone, but when we fell we never checked with the doctor, because 2-3 days after the fall had no pain. We have already treated the internal medicine, but only given the medicine without further checking. My mother was only told to bow, but when she was bowing, she didn’t feel pain. I was confused, which part had to check my mother’s health? The problem with seeing an inner doctor when explained like that, was only told to bow, while my mother did not feel pain when bowing. Now he is losing weight and feeling weak, because the food that comes in is only a small amount of rice which is almost like porridge, eating porridge like this hopes that it can run smoothly when defecating. Please take direction, do we have to see a neurologist? Or how?
Thank you for asking at Aolodokter.
