Can Gastritis Occur With Stomach Acid?
after endoscopy of my stomach, it turned out that I was diagnosed with mild gastritis. My complaints were initially sore on the left and right upper abdomen. chest tightness like pressure. frequent belching. flatulence is like a bloated body. my body is weak, including my back and upper arms, I keep stiff. r is that really the effect of gastritis? r nbecause I was at the end, the results were normal, only lack of exercise. is it caused by infection or lung disease even though I have no indication of coughing? r nwhy every time I eat green and hard vegetables my chest tightness and stomach hurts even though before being given the medicine, the sore did not appear. because I didn’t feel nauseous or gastric acid to the top all this time.
Hi Hilda .. Thank you for the question given.
Gastritis is a condition in which the stomach becomes irritated or inflamed. Gastritis can be caused due to infection with H.pylori bacteria, as a result of consumption of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, alcohol consumption, chronic vomiting, bile reflux, or due to stress. Symptoms that sufferers often complain of are bloating, nausea, vomiting, pain and heat in the stomach area, feeling full quickly, abdominal pain. Pain can be felt in the solar plexus area, left side of the stomach and sometimes the chest feels hot. If from the results of your EKG there is no heart problem but you feel hot in the chest area or tightness, the cause could be due to an increase in stomach acid.
Endoscopic examination is one of the best investigations to diagnose gastritis. The doctor can also perform a biopsy at the same time to see if H. Pylori bacteria are present. If you still feel the same complaints and feel heavy, there is a black bowel movement, vomiting bloody, then you should go back to consult an internal medicine doctor. Meanwhile what you can do is:
Eat regularly, you can divide into small portions but with more frequency Avoid alcohol, caffeine, smoking Avoid long-term use of pain relievers Avoid spicy, sour, sour, fatty, greasy foods Avoid psychological stress
