Acid Reflux Disease Accompanied By Tingling Feet?
Good afternoon, I want to ask I have never had a history of heartburn. Suddenly, on July 27 I experienced shortness of breath, my heart was beating fast, trembling and my chest was hot. The next day I went to the hospital, and he said I had stomach acid and GERD. Had an ECG, the results are normal lungs and heart. As of today, August 15, Blum has completely recovered. Only the difference from the beginning, I was never short of breath again or my chest felt like it was burning at the beginning. What I’m experiencing now, my legs are limp like pins and needles like gas moving in my throat. My bowel is not hard, and it’s not runny it’s just that the color is pale yellow. Never experienced vomiting, except for nausea. If you have a headache, just sometimes. I became uneasy, because like there was gas in my throat and legs, how come it was weak and tingling. And, every time you wake up in the morning, it’s like feeling your stomach acid rising. Why is this my disease? Can my stomach acid gas production be normal again? Because indeed I have never had a history of ulcers.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Gastric acid disease is a disease that occurs when stomach acid rises from its place in the stomach into the esophagus, or even the tip of the oral cavity. Because organs other than the stomach are not designed to withstand this damaging fluid, symptoms appear when there is increased gastric fluid, such as heartburn, chest heat, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, painful swallowing, and tongue taste acidic.
This condition does not have to exist from birth, and every person can experience it at a moment in his life. The cause is a weak retaining muscle ring, but why this muscle ring is weak, is still unknown until now. What is known is that there are several triggers for this condition, including:
Eat spicy, sour, oily and fatty foods
Overweight or obese
Sleep immediately after eating
In your case, the condition you are experiencing may not be purely acid reflux disease, because generally, acid reflux disease does not cause foot tingling. There may be other factors such as malnutrition, nerve disorders, injury to the stomach and infections that cause this condition to feel worse. But no need to worry, because with you already treated now, it means that your steps are right. You will be monitored by a doctor and all your complaints will be dealt with. Besides this disease is also not deadly, and generally sufferers will be able to lead a normal life, but with a slight adjustment in the form of avoidance of the triggers that we mentioned above.
Meanwhile, convey all your complaints to the doctor who treats you, ask everything you should avoid and what you should do, and live a healthy lifestyle by avoiding smoking, regular exercise and maintaining an ideal body weight. So, hopefully answering your question.
