Why Does The Stomach Often Hurt, Does This Include Stomach Acid?
I’m Melinda, aged 20 years. 1 day ago, I woke up at 4 am because I felt stomach pain. It hurts like a person with acid reflux disease. Incidentally, I do have a history of stomach acid disease since grade 2 of high school. But it’s been a long time since my stomach acid has recurred. When I woke up at 4 in the morning, my stomach hurt so much. The day before, I ate uduk rice in the morning. Then in the afternoon I eat chicken noodles and junk food snacks that are less healthy with chili sauce that is quite spicy. Then instead the day I only ate snacks. After I woke up at 4 o’clock that morning, I decided to eat because I thought my stomach acid had recurred. Then I took mefenamic acid medicine. After that my stomach was still crunchy, but finally the pain disappeared because I overslept. After that, around 6 in the morning I woke up to defecate and I dived with feces that were 100% water. I forgot I went 3 times or only went to the toilet twice. After that, I left for campus at 9 o’clock. After arriving at campus, at noon around 12 o’clock I ate a slightly spicy geprek chicken. After finishing eating, I felt my body ache all. My whole body aches and aches when I feel cold. I feel my body is hot, but when it is checked by my friend, my body is just normal warm. My head is also dizzy, then my eyes feel tired, painful when I close my eyes. My stomach hurts again. Finally I went home and treated at home. After treatment I did not get definite results about my pain. I was only given medication omegots, diclofenac sodium, and loperamid HCL. After I took the three medicines, I still felt complaints that I experienced before. Then my mother suggested that I be scraped, and finally my heat dropped after scraping. Now, aching pains and aches, sore eyes, dizzy head I have disappeared. But I still feel the stomach scythes. The pain is very precise in the stomach near the liver. Every time I push the diseased area, I feel pain that spreads to my chest and has a little difficulty breathing. What am I experiencing, maybe because of what? Oh yeah, before that I also often experienced diarrhea because of my penchant for money. I have a friend in the Faculty of Medicine and advised me for Endoscopy. Do you think the doctor of the things that I experienced, I need to do Endoscopy? Thanks.
Hello Melinda, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
The symptoms and signs that you experience can be found in several diseases, such as:
Gastroenteritis is inflammation of the stomach and intestines caused by infection with several types of viruses and bacteria. Gastroenteritis can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, or sometimes fever in the sufferer. Peptic ulcer is the erosion of the lining of the esophagus or stomach or small intestine wall (duodenum) so as to cause injury. Symptoms can include heartburn that can spread to the neck, navel, to the back, feels worse on an empty stomach, generally decreases temporarily if you eat or take stomach acid-lowering drugs, can disappear and then recur a few days or weeks later. Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a condition characterized by pain in the solar plexus or a burning sensation in the chest due to the rise of stomach acid into the esophagus. In gastric disease, the doctor will usually give treatment for 4-6 weeks while being evaluated. If the pain still persists after the treatment, the doctor will usually carry out further tests. I suggest that you consult directly with a specialist in internal medicine so that a comprehensive examination, such as a question and answer, a physical examination of the abdomen, and additional examinations if necessary such as an ultrasound of the stomach or endoscopy, so that treatment can be given according to your disease.
As for the things you can do right now are:
Eat regularly with small portions but frequent frequency, around 5-6 times per day Do not consume foods that can stimulate the digestive system, such as foods that are too acidic, bitter, spicy and foods and drinks that contain gas. Maintain cleanliness of hands before and after eating to prevent bacterial contamination from entering through food Do not consume alcohol and do not smoke Control stress and get enough rest. Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
