Abdominal Pain

Dah 2 kali Eugene mangadu sakit perut, 1st time at 6am 2 days ago; and the 2nd time, last night at 3am. It lasted about 1 hour. Sebelum ni tak pernah pula dia sakit perut macam ni. So this morning, kami bawa dia ke clinic. Doctor cakap indigestive problem, and bagi ubat Dicyclomine-s, in other words ubat angin jer.

Indigestive problem? Ape bende nyer tu? Sampai kat rumah, Mummy terus surf, macam² juga info yang keluar. But I think below is the easiest explanation that I can absorb.

Abdominal pain
Abdominal pain in children is often frightening and frustrating for parents. Many times it is hard to find the exact cause of a child's abdominal pain. Pain without other symptoms that goes away completely in less than 3 hours is usually not serious.

Indigestion
Indigestion is a common problem. It occurs for many reasons. Eating too fast, eating too much, or eating certain foods can cause indigestion. Spicy foods, high-fat or high-fiber foods, caffeine, and carbonated beverages can lead to indigestion. Indigestion can also be caused by a bacteria called H. pylori which can cause stomach ulcers as well.

Symptoms
Indigestion is the sensation of upper abdominal discomfort. Your child may experience pain or a burning feeling in his or her stomach or upper abdomen. Your child may feel full or bloated. Indigestion can cause belching, gas, vomiting, nausea, and stomach growling.

Complications
Because indigestion can be a symptom of a more serious medical condition, you should call your doctor if your child experiences blood in his or her vomit or stools, black tarry stools, weight loss, loss of appetite, and severe abdominal pain or discomfort.
