Timely consulting a multispecialty hospital in Varanasi Uttar Pradesh, like Popular Hospital, serves as a weapon against growing diseases.
Everything that happens in our belly and in our chest is mainly regulated by the Autonomous Nervous System, but it is known that this has interactions with the Central Nervous System, which includes our consciousness.
Under normal conditions we do not have perception of the actions carried out by the internal organs, of the contractile action of our heart, of the respiratory movements of our lungs, of the propulsion of food in our intestine, which pertain to physiological activities such as blood circulation, breathing and tissue oxygenation, nutrition, transit of food in the intestine and defecation.
The Autonomous Nervous System consists of three branches: the Sympathetic Nervous System, the Parasympathetic and the Metasympathetic: the latter is the Enteric Nervous System.
When the balance between the three systems is broken, the nerves, which constantly control the activities of the organism, send messages to the brain, which become conscious and unpleasant sensations of pain and discomfort.
The foregoing is at the basis of functional pains in general and gastroenterological pains in particular, of which little is known, although many studies are underway on the subject, in consideration of the very high prevalence of such inconveniences in the general population.
However, pain, before being certified as functional, must be thoroughly investigated, to exclude organic causes.
In the gastroenterological field, it can originate in any of the structures of the abdomen or abdominal wall. Conversely, pathologies relating to the thorax, back or pelvic region can show signs of themselves in the abdomen and therefore lead to suspicion of a gastrointestinal pathology. For example, the pain of myocardial infarction or pneumonia manifests itself as an epigastric pain, therefore of the stomach, or with vomiting. So even the symptom of a kidney stone can cause vomiting and stomach pain. Read More: Understanding the Types of Back Pain and Their Causes and Risks
But then, you ask, when to call the doctor?
Often it is the very nature of the pain that guides the choice of the patient, its intensity and duration. If this is mild, occurs recurrently for longer and does not show warning signs, you can avoid the emergency room and inform the treating physician later.
In case of severe pain, in terms of intensity and duration, with the presence of alarm signals, it is necessary to go to the emergency room. But let’s see what these warning signs are: a high fever, the presence of blood in the stool, diarrhoea that does not go away, a sudden constipation, with pain and a lot of air in the belly that cannot be expelled, vomiting of blood, continuous nausea.
To make the diagnosis, the consulted multispecialty hospital in Varanasi, as always happens in medicine, will need the history of the problem, but also the family, physiological and remote pathological history. The expert of these hospitals will investigate the characteristics of the pain, whether it is acute, crampy, burning, stabbing, penetrating, deaf, stabbing, the moment in which the pain appears, in relation to physiological acts, such as eating, defecation, sexual intercourse.
