Bloating, Heartburn, Tightness, Restlessness At Night?
4 days back when I feel restless at night, cold sweat, because the stomach feels bloated and shortness of breath, I have gone to the doctor and given the drug OMEPRAZOLE u0026amp; PARACETAMOL, but when I am late taking the medicine I feel a relapse, will I be addicted to it?
Hello Arian, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Bloating and heartburn are symptoms that occur in the disease:
- Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach wall that can be caused by gastric acid irritation, infections, drugs, alcohol, and stress factors. Gastritis patients usually present with complaints of heartburn, nausea, vomiting, bloating, and often belching
- Peptic ulcer is a wound in the mucous lining of the stomach or duodenum (the upper part of the small intestine) which can be caused by excess stomach acid production, bacterial infections (generally Helicobater pylori), painkillers, and old age. Symptoms of this disease can be heartburn, which appears more frequently at night, feels worse on an empty stomach, disappears and then recurs a few days or weeks later, generally decreases temporarily if you eat or take stomach acid-lowering drugs.
- GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease) or stomach acid disease is a condition characterized by pain in the pit of the stomach or a burning sensation in the chest due to the increase in stomach acid to the esophagus caused by non-functioning signal esophageal sphinchter (LES). LES is a muscular circle at the bottom of the esophagus
If the complaint that you feel lasts a long time and interferes with your activities, I suggest that you consult directly with a specialist in internal medicine so that a thorough examination can be carried out, such as questions and answers, vital signs examination, abdominal physical examination, and additional examinations if necessary such as endoscopy or ultrasound so that treatment can be given according to your diagnosis.
As for the things you can do right now are:
- Eat small portions but frequent intervals, around 5-6 meals per day
- Avoid foods that stimulate digestion such as foods that are too acidic, spicy, bitter, and foods or drinks that are gassed.
- Avoid alcoholic and caffeinated drinks.
- Do not smoke
- Isitrahat sufficient and control stress
- Do not often consume NSAID class of anti-pain medication if not necessary, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, mefenamic acid, sodium diclofenac, naproxen, etc.
If you find a sign like this, you should immediately seek treatment at the nearest health facility:
- Vomiting blood
- CHAPTER bleeding
- Stomach hardens like a board
- Great vomiting
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
