Why Is The Stomach Solid And Feels Hot?
Hello, why does my stomach when pressed feel hard and solid in certain parts and also hot? Sometimes shortness when breathing and stomach often aches
Thank you for the question.
A stomach that feels hard, solid, hot, tight, and painful, especially when pressed may indicate a mass in your stomach. This mass can vary, for example:
Gas, for example if you have dyspepsia, obstructive ileus
Solid, for example if you have a benign or malignant tumor, enlarged liver or spleen
Liquid, for example if you experience ascites, urinary retention, cysts, and so on
In addition to mass in the stomach, uncomfortable sensations that you feel can also occur due to other factors, for example intestinal inflammation, food poisoning, malabsorption or food allergies, pre menstrual syndrome, pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, peritonitis, muscle cramps, psychosomatic disorders, digestive infections, urinary tract infections, and so on.
Direct physical examination is also needed supporting tests, such as x-rays, ultrasound, etc. so that the originator of your complaints can be identified and handled properly. Therefore, we recommend that you consult yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine, yes. Do not just take medication carelessly if it is not the doctor who prescribed it directly to you.
To help you deal with stomach discomfort, here are our suggestions:
Apply warm compresses on your stomach
Wear comfortable and loose clothing
Expand to exercise to tighten the abdominal muscles, for example sit ups, yoga, swimming, jumping rope, lifting weights
Eat more regularly, first limit the consumption of foods and beverages that contain lots of gas (for example soda, coffee, tea, mustard greens, cabbage, tubers, coconut milk, sauce)
Make sure you only eat cooked and processed foods that are clean
Drink more warm water, especially when the stomach is in pain
No sadness or excessive anxiety
Hope this helps ...
