Why Do You Often Get Stomachaches?
Hello, I am 21 years old. I am still in college and I am among those who are active in all external and internal campus activities until I take part in martial arts. The question is, I went to the doctor 1 week ago to check the state of my stomach because I have too often experienced stomachaches that I feel on all the abdomen (if I say mah stomach high school, the intestine shrinks 😅) until it hurts until uluhati and right and left chest. But the results I sdh 1 week treatment there is no change. This stomach ache often arrives “attacking and very painful until sometimes it is difficult for me to breathe normally (so I breathe using a slow mouth ” because if I make the breath it hurts my stomach it feels like pulling it) especially if it’s already at 7-11 o’clock at night even though I haven’t eaten yet I won’t feel hungry and if I eat it hurts instead. But if around 1-5 am I will feel a more severe stomach ache again, until I wake up like that. If the pain strikes during the day, my stomach hurts and hurts for any movement hurts (even breathing) and after eating I sometimes even feel a full stomach and want to vomit even though my food portion is slightly reduced than usual even as if I don’t eat. (makes me confused) when I checked yesterday the doctor said I was sick or what symptoms, but only said “I hope you are good”, yes. And when my stomach was pressed by the doctor it felt like all the abdomen he pressed was sick except the part below navel is not so painful. So that’s why me ??? Sorry if my story is long, but that’s what I experienced.
Hello, good morning Chichi ...
Abdominal pain as you experience, which actually feels pain when after eating and to wake up during sleep due to abdominal pain experienced, possibly caused by a disease called peptic ulcer, which is the presence of ulcers / sores in the stomach or ulcers in the duodenum (12 fingers intestines) . Generally, this disease is caused by a history of chronic gastritis (gastritis) and often experience recurrence. In addition, the use of certain drugs, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in the long term can also cause injury to the stomach. The diagnosis of this disease can only be ascertained through further examination by a doctor such as through an endoscope (ie inserting a device such as a small tube that has a camera stored in the mouth to see the condition of the upper gastrointestinal tract). However, in addition to peptic ulcer, there are still other possible causes of complaints that you experience, such as: Functional dyspepsia (ie a condition of persistent / chronic heartburn without any signs of abnormalities in the upper gastrointestinal organs from the results of the examination), Chronic gastritis (ulcer), Chron's disease (chronic inflammation of the intestine), etc.
We recommend that you check yourself directly with a specialist in internal medicine to confirm the diagnosis of the disease you are experiencing. The doctor will ask questions about your complaints and previous medical history, conduct a physical examination, and if needed the doctor may suggest additional examinations such as ultrasound examination, endoscopy, and others.
While waiting to see a doctor, here are some suggestions we can give:
eat on time at least 3 times a day, with a snack between the 2 large meals (in the form of biscuits, wafers, jelly, fruit, etc.) if you often feel nauseous when eating, then you can change your portion of food to be less but often (4-5 times a day) avoid foods that contain a lot of gas, such as cabbage vegetables, broccoli, sparkling drinks, foods that have flour-based ingredients (eg bread and instant noodles), etc. avoid acidic and spicy foods avoid consumption of caffeinated beverages such as tea and coffee avoid stress because stress can trigger an increase in stomach acid which can worsen heartburn
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
