Causes Heartburn, Abdominal Pain, Shortness Of Breath And Back Pain?
I want to ask, I am 21 years old feeling direct heartburn and abdominal pain and back pain, if after eating it is increasingly crowded. why is that?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Heartburn, upper abdominal pain, tightness, and back pain that worsens after eating can be a sign of gastric acid reflux (gastroesophageal reflux disease). This condition often occurs because it does not close properly the smooth muscle ring that should limit the stomach with the esophagus. As a result, after the food bolus drops into the stomach, some of the acid rises back into the esophagus and causes irritation. It is this irritation that ultimately triggers complaints like you do today.
It could also be that your complaints occur due to interference with the ducts or gallbladder, for example due to inflammation or the presence of stones. Usually, complaints due to these conditions will worsen when you consume excess fatty foods. In addition, the sensation of discomfort in your upper abdomen to your back may also be caused by pancreatitis, gastritis, peptic ulcers, heart attacks, pleurisy, pneumonia, pneumothorax, panic attacks, somatoform disorders, and so on.
You should check yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that your condition can be handled properly. Some types of tests, such as x-rays, ultrasound, or endoscopy, can also be done by doctors if deemed necessary. As for what treatment will be given later by the doctor, of course it can vary depending on the cause of your complaint.
The following steps you can take to help alleviate your complaint:
Compress the upper abdomen and back that are uncomfortable with warm water
Eat with discipline 3 to 5 hours, small portions but often
Don't eat fatty, oily, sour, and spicy foods before your doctor declares that you are safe to consume them
Do not also make it a habit to eat instant food or snacks haphazardly
Avoid sleeping or lying down after eating
Drink plenty of water, limit caffeine, stay away from alcohol
Maintain your ideal body weight
Do not carelessly take medication without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
