Maag en spierpyn

Ek het die afgelope jaar met konstante maag en spierpyne gesukkel. Ek het vir soveel toetse gegaan en elke keer is daar niks gevind nie. My hele rug se spiere asook voor by my borskas en oor my ribbes se spiere was konstant seer. Dan het ek ook erge abdominale pyne gehad wat nooit weggegaan het nie. Nou die dag lees ek van Cayenne pepper wat mens '  n halwe teelepel in '  n halwe glas warm water meng en dan drink. Blykbaar help dit vir spierpyne, abdominale pyne, IBS en nog vele ander dinge en kwale. Ek het toe besluit om dit te probeer. Dit is nou al die 4de dag en my pyne is aansienlik minder. Ek weet nie of dit net sielkundig is nie maar ek glo nie, daarvoor het ek al te lank hierdie pyne. My maag is nog met tye effens sensitief maar verder voel ek 100%. Het dr '  n verklaring hiervoor?

Hello Linda,
Capsaican is the active ingredient of cayenne pepper. Interestingly, although many people complain that many people complain eating spicy foods irritates their stomach, research indicates that consumption of cayenne pepper actually protects against ulcers.
As you have reported negative findings with many tests which is a very positive outcome, I would suggest you try your nearest osteopath as an alternate approach. The symptoms you describe are complex and an osteopath will take time to help unravel possible causes and then treat if appropriate. For more information on osteopathy visit www.osteogoodhealth.com

I had a fall at work and fell forward onto my stomach. I now have a rather painful area to the right side under my breast around my stomach and rib area. Could I have torn the spleen or broken a rib? Could it possibly be internal injury to other vital organs and what are the symptoms to look out for. There has been no sign of blood. Grateful for you input.
