Spasms in the abdomen.
When children are sick, always scary. Especially since up to 3 years the child can not understand at all consciously, not to convey to us, adults, where and how it hurts. The whole process of diagnosing is complicated by the fact that a variety of diseases, for example, even pneumonia in young children can provoke pain in the abdomen.
The causes of abdominal pain in children, as well as in adults, can be different, like the nature of the pain itself, and the extent to which it affects various organs. Parents need to be alerted if the child exhibits the following symptoms:
• vomiting, which is accompanied by various abdominal pains;
• night pain, as a result of which the child wakes up;
• abdominal pain lasts more than a few hours and does not go away;
• blood is observed in the stool;
• the child prefers to lie more than to move;
• Significant weight loss;
• pain occurs during eating or immediately after eating;
• When moving, the baby starts to bend and stick to the stomach;
• and others.
Many women, once a month and during pregnancy, have to suffer spasms in the abdomen, but this is due to the usual physiological processes that have nothing to do with the witches. Usually such symptoms, light and pleasant, exciting in anticipation of pleasure, accompany( by descriptions of many) and love foreplay, but do not frighten anyone, but only please.
If the pain really pulsates in the abdomen, then you can take spasmolytic drugs that can relax the muscles. Thanks to the medication, there is discomfort and a feeling of heaviness. And, since this kind of medicine is poorly absorbed, the side effects from their administration are minimal and do not lubricate the overall picture in the diagnosis.
Pain caused by spasm should quickly disappear without the intervention of doctors. Because this kind of pain and cramps in the abdomen are associated( most often) with untimely food intake. Food and medicine cope with this problem on their own. But they do not solve it forever. After all, these same signs can be signals of various very serious diseases. In addition, if the pain begins to disturb at night, accompanied by nausea or vomiting, diarrhea or constipation( more than once!), An increase in temperature, then it is necessary, without delaying the process, not postponing, to consult a therapist or gastroenterologist.
Constant pain usually does not travel around the body, it concentrates on one place. Sharp, sometimes, it seems that even the breath intercepts, the pain puts the patient in bed, tk.deprives the ability to move. Then delay with the appeal to doctors is unacceptable.
According to specialists, not all patients with abdominal pain require urgent surgical intervention, but in such situations, not even every doctor will put a quickly correct diagnosis. Therefore, it is not customary to immediately remove abdominal cramps with analgesics until a comprehensive examination is performed, excluding, for example, appendicitis. Analgesics, dulling pain, lubricate a reliable picture of what is happening, so self-medication here can cause negative consequences.
Very often abdominal pain is called irritable bowel syndrome( IBS), because they suffer from only the function of the intestine. And such symptoms can be provoked by the patient himself, who is not able to combat his bad habits or too emotional character. Depression, stress are helpers of the disease, with which it is necessary to fight, as with chronic diseases.
A stable regime of the day, in which food intake is not an unfortunate necessity, the ability to stop in a working excitement in time and walk through the streets of the city, slowly breathing fresh air, will make spasms in the abdomen rare visitors in your body. And you will feel much happier, avoiding the unpleasant need to consult a doctor.
But if self-medication does not help, and you only get worse, then consult a doctor. You will be referred for examination and put an accurate diagnosis. Then you will be given the right treatment.
