Why Have 7 Days No Appetite, Nausea, Migraine And Blackish Faeces?
Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask 7 days my appetite is reduced. Eating becomes a little bit.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Melena or black bowel movements or bloody stools are symptoms caused by upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Upper gastrointestinal tract includes the esophagus (esophagus), stomach (gastric) and part of the duodenum. The most common causes are gastric sores, irritated gastric mucosal linings, ruptured esophageal blood vessels. In addition, a history that is quite often found is a history of long-term pain medication consumption and herbs are also a cause that is often found. In addition to the symptoms of black bowel movements, there can be complaints of heartburn, nausea, abdominal pain, or anemia symptoms such as weakness, pale appearance, and tightness in severe anemia.
The diagnosis is confirmed by routine blood tests, stool analysis and endoscopy (gastrointestinal binoculars) to determine the source of bleeding and the location of the abnormality.
If not treated immediately, it is feared that complaints will get worse and the general condition of the patient can continue to fall. Therefore immediately consult a doctor to be able to do further examinations and appropriate medical treatment. Stop consuming drugs outside the doctor's recommendations and avoid consuming spicy, fatty, sour, soda, chocolate, alcohol, etc.
That's all, hope you can help
