Abdominal Pain To The Middle Of The Chest After Eating A Lot When Breaking The Fast?
last night I had a bukber event, I drank 2 glasses of iced tea and ate a lot, when I returned home I ate porridge again. When I wake up at night, my stomach hurts a lot and my chest hurts too. I even got nauseous and vomited. Actually, what am I sick?
Hi Safitri, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Pain in the abdomen and middle chest as you experience can be caused by several possibilities, including:
GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease
Gastritis or inflammation of the stomach
Peptic ulcer or injury to the stomach or duodenum
Gastrointestinal infection (gastroenteritis) or food poisoning
Pancreatitis or inflammation of the pancreas
Cholecystitis or inflammation of the bile
If the pain symptoms you feel persist, the pain gets worse, you vomit continuously so you can't eat and drink, vomit accompanied by blood or a blackish color like coffee, vomit green, the stomach is bulging and feels hard, black bowel, fever, the skin and eyes turn yellow, so you should see a doctor so that an examination can be done directly. Your doctor can ask more clearly about other symptoms you are experiencing, a history of the food you eat, a history of the diseases you have, the drugs you are taking, etc., do a physical examination, and additional examinations if needed.
If your abdominal pain gets better on its own after a while, you most likely have GERD. GERD symptoms can be triggered by eating too much and lying down after eating. If this is what you have experienced, here are some things you can do:
eat a little, don't jump a lot
do not lie down or do too much activity or exercise after eating
avoid eating foods that are too oily, spicy, and acidic
avoid eating gas-producing foods
avoid drinking drinks that trigger stomach acid such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate, etc.
avoid smoking and drinking alcohol
elevate your headrest while you sleep
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
