Hello, good afternoon Siti.

The complaints you experience, in the form of dizziness, nausea, and shortness of breath can be caused by gastric disease, namely GERD (Gastro-Esophagus Reflux Diseases), which is a condition where stomach acid rises from the stomach into the esophagus (esophagus) due to weakness of the circular muscle at the bottom of the esophagus. which normally functions to prevent stomach acid from rising back up into the esophagus. Symptoms of GERD are usually a burning sensation in the chest due to stomach acid rising into the esophagus, which is often perceived as shortness of breath by some patients. In addition, GERD can also experience nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headaches, bitter tongue, decreased appetite, and so on.

Apart from GERD, these complaints can also be caused by:

Gastritis / stomach ulcers, namely stomach inflammation due to increased stomach acid levels. Triggers for gastritis include late eating, psychological stress, acidic and spicy foods, caffeine consumption, and so on. Shaking hands as you complain can be a symptom that arises due to the body's lack of blood sugar levels, for example due to late eating, which in turn can cause heartburn.

Stomach ulcers (peptic ulcers), which are sores in the stomach caused by increased levels of stomach acid or thinning of the protective lining of the stomach due to infection with the bacterium Ahaelicobacter pylori. The typical symptom of this disease is heartburn that appears at night when the stomach is empty, and the pain is temporarily reduced when eating or taking gastric medications.

Complaints of dizziness that you experience can also be caused by conditions outside the digestive system, such as:


anemia (lack of hemoglobin in the blood)
low blood pressure
low blood sugar level
lack of fluids

You should check with your doctor to find out the exact cause of the complaints you are experiencing, because to diagnose a disease it takes a history (question and answer) about complaints, direct physical examination and/or other additional examinations. The doctor may order blood lab tests if needed.

While you are waiting to see your doctor, you can do the following:

get enough rest
avoid psychological stress
Avoid consuming acidic, spicy foods, and consuming coffee
avoid lying down after eating, give it 20-3o minutes after eating if you are going to lie down
You can take medications that contain antacids to treat stomach upset

Hope it helps,

Regards, dr. Denisa Libela
