Endoscopic Examination Results In Patients With Chronic Gastritis?
Good evening, Doc, I have had stomach acid since October 2018, 5 months ago. Whenever my stomach acid rises, I am always anxious, the symptoms caused are similar to those of a heart attack, especially if you are stressed at work and eat too little. January 7, I did an endoscopy, until finally new results could be taken on January 15, and 1 month later, I was only able to control to the doctor, I was only given the drug lansoprazole and sucralfat without being explained in more detail what happened to me because I used BPJS. My endoscopy results: Plica piriformis D / S appears hyperemiEsophagusMucosal looks slipperyPeristaltic appearanceNo normal looksMucosal breakGasterFundus, cardia: hyperemic patches appearCorpus: mucosa appears hyperemiAntrum: appears hyperemic spotsPosition of retrospective normal LGEV appears not normalDuodenumMissus in the gastric and gastrointestinal tract in the gastrointestinal tract. Esophago-pharyngeal reflux While the results of the biopsy: Chronic gastritis is inactive I tried to stop using the drug, because Lansoprazole said the ‘article’ is dangerous if taken continuously, whereas I use sucralfate if my stomach is sore. What I want to ask, what diagnosis am I actually trying to diagnose? What should I do so that heartburn symptoms such as heart attacks do not always make me anxious and panic about death? And why is my stomach getting sore and rumbling lately, like I have such a great hunger? Thank you, I beg so much for your help.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
You have chronic gastritis, which is an inflammatory disease of the inner lining of the stomach lining that has lasted a long time. This disease is caused by an excessive increase in stomach acid levels, which is triggered by stress, irregular eating patterns, eating foods that are acidic, fishy, flavorful, preservative, canned, chocolate, coffee and alcohol. This disease will be characterized by heartburn or burning pain, accompanied by nausea, vomiting and dizziness.
This disease does not cause death. So you don't need to worry. If you are over 35 years old or have an obese body or a group of heavy smokers or have experienced left chest pain that feels squeezed by heavy objects that spread to the shoulders, jaw and left arm accompanied by cold sweat you should consult with a cardiologist for a physical examination of the heart and heart record. So you do not need to worry too much especially if it turns out that from the results of a cardiologist's examination there is no problem with your heart.
To avoid recurrence of your gastritis, you should consume the medicine that the doctor has prescribed in accordance with what the doctor recommends. Because your stomach disease has lasted a long time, of course this requires a long treatment also in order to restore its condition to normal. Do not stop the drug yourself without the knowledge of the doctor. Control according to the schedule the doctor has set, so that the doctor can assess the effect of the drug on the disease and the side effects of the drug on your health.
Treatment of chronic gastritis that is not treated or neglected from treatment, can cause erosion of the stomach wall into peptic ulcers, causing gastric bleeding.
Thus hopefully useful.
