Good morning, thanks for the question
Based on medical research, it is known that there is a relationship between headache complaints with disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, one of which is disorders such as gastritis and acid reflux. Headache can accompany stomach complaints due to a series of mechanisms involving innervation to the central nervous system. Sufferers will complain of reduced headache after the gastrointestinal disorders are treated. So, yes, there is a relationship with the headache complaint that you feel with a history of stomach disorders at this time.
Complaints in gastritis include pain or burning in the gut that can get worse or better after eating. Individuals who complain of pain getting worse after eating certain foods will avoid eating so that it will result in weight loss. Other symptoms of gastritis are nausea, vomiting, bloating, or feeling full quickly.
If the complaint has not improved, then you should do a consultation to be able to do a physical examination directly by a doctor. To overcome these complaints can be given by drugs to neutralize stomach acid, protect the stomach wall from excess stomach acid, or suppress the production of acid in the stomach that is excessive. In chronic cases the treatment is in the long term to facilitate healing of the gastric mucosa.
In addition it is also important to change lifestyles and pay attention to the types of food consumed, which can be prevented by avoiding the following:
1. Poor eating patterns such as late meals, spicy foods, large portions of food, too sour, fizzy, or bersantan foods.
2. Drink coffee and tea often.
3. Bacterial or parasitic infections.
4. Long-term use of analgesic drugs and steroids.
5. Smoking and alcohol consumption.
6. Psychic stress.
7. Poor hygiene and sanitation such as not washing hands before eating and after going to the bathroom, food is not washed clean and not cooked until cooked.
That's all, hope you can help.
