Are The Symptoms Of Bile Reflux The Same As The Symptoms Of GERD And What Is The Solution?
Good morning. Are the symptoms of bile reflux the same as the symptoms of GERD? how is the solution so that the bile does not go up to the stomach? and whether bile reflux can cause anxiety? thank you
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bile reflux or bile reflux is a different condition from GERD or acid reflux disease. Bile reflux is when bile produced in the liver rises to the stomach, and can instead go up to the throat. Please note is that the connection between bile to the digestive tract is through the small intestine that is located after the stomach. So if there is reflux, the bile rises from the small intestine, into the stomach, or even the esophagus.
While GERD or stomach acid disease, is a condition when the stomach acid itself rises into the esophagus. The causes vary, but indeed the symptoms can sometimes be difficult to distinguish, because bile reflux can also lead to GERD conditions and both can occur together. Among the symptoms are:
Nausea Vomiting (green if there is bile content) Pain in the pit of the stomach or upper abdomen Burning in the chest The tongue feels sour Cough or hoarseness Weight loss
The way to avoid this condition occurs is to avoid triggers, such as smoking, eating large amounts of food, not going to sleep immediately after eating, reducing the consumption of fatty, sour and spicy foods, avoiding the consumption of chocolate, onions, soft drinks, tea and coffee, alcohol, and maintain ideal body weight. If it does not also reduce symptoms, treatment from a doctor can take oral medication, and surgery as a final step.
Then for anxiety or anxiety itself, it usually triggers the increase in stomach acid and not vice versa. Even if the opposite applies, usually because someone knows he will experience GERD when he is asked to present or eat in front of other people for example, then he becomes anxious because of that. But neither bile reflux or GERD itself does not directly cause anxiety. We suggest that you discuss about your problem with the internist. Your doctor will try to find out the root of the problem and deal with the right treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
