Upper Left Abdominal Pain To The Waist And Frequent Urination?
Good evening doctor. I want to ask how many days have I had abdominal pain in the upper left, the pain is up to my waist, why do you urinate frequently, why?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Upper left abdominal pain that you feel can be caused by the following conditions:
Upper urinary tract infection: characterized by abdominal pain radiating to the waist, accompanied by fever and chills. When the infection reaches the lower urinary tract, you can also feel the symptoms of frequent urination and pain when urinating
Inflammation of the stomach (gastritis): caused by irritation by stomach acid which can be triggered by eating too late, or gastric irritation by spicy or acidic foods
Gastric ulcers: sores in the stomach caused by chronic gastric inflammation or the long-term use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Inflammation of the pancreas: accompanied by fever and generally worsens quickly
To determine the cause of your complaint, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner. The doctor will further explore your complaint and will conduct a detailed examination of the urinary tract and gastrointestinal tract. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as urine tests, blood tests, stool examinations, and if necessary, will be referred to a urinary doctor for an x-ray or an internal medicine doctor for an endoscopy. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions.
Things you can do to improve and prevent worsening of your disease are:
Get enough fluids by drinking about 2 liters of water per day
Don't delay urinating
Avoid eating foods that irritate the stomach such as spicy or acidic foods
Eat regularly, avoid eating late
Consume fruits and vegetables to meet your fiber needs so that the digestive system runs smoothly
Compress the painful stomach with warm water
You can take over-the-counter pain medications such as paracetamol
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get better soon :)
