Causes Of Tightness In The Chest Area And Frequent Belching?
At night, I have recovered from typhus for more than 2 weeks, but after every meal, my stomach hurts (sometimes in the intestines, sometimes in the stomach) and my chest feels tight. Her stomach hurts even more when I move after eating (before typhus, because I used to do activities after eating) my chest also feels tight after eating and the tightness will decrease if I burp (since typhus I often burp). And it has been a week since my chapters have become very hard and are also small and small, even though I regularly eat vegetables and occasionally eat fruit. What I want to ask is, is it normal for me after eating to feel tight in the chest and often burp, also pain in the stomach area and my chapters are hard even though I often eat vegetables, do I need to go to the doctor again? Thank you in advance
Hi Rizky .. Thank you for the question given.
Shortness of the chest area and frequent belching can occur due to several things including:
Raised stomach acid / GERD - characterized by a burning chest, frequent belching, a lump in the throat, sour or bitter mouth, bloating
Heartburn / dyspepsia
Gastric ulcer / injury to the stomach wall
Disorders of the pancreas
Meanwhile, defecation that feels hard can occur due to constipation or constipation, lack of fiber intake, less consumption of water, habit of holding back bowel movements, irregular eating patterns, lack of activity, intestinal disorders (for example narrowing of the intestine, blockage of the intestine). If your complaints of frequent belching, pain in the gut, and bowel disorders continue if there is a decrease in appetite, the body becomes weak, then it's a good idea to see an internal medicine doctor. So that doctors can carry out direct examinations and if needed can be followed by endoscopic examinations, abdominal ultrasound, colonoscopy. So that a definite diagnosis can be made and can be given the right treatment. Meanwhile, several things that can be done are:
Avoid caffeine consumption and avoid smoking
Drink enough water at least 2 liters per day
Eat regularly, avoid spicy, sour, fatty foods
After eating, wait at least 2 hours before you lie down to prevent stomach acid from rising back up
Enough consumption of vegetables and fruit, and avoid the habit of holding back bowel movements
