Feeling Back Pain?
Hello, I often feel back pain, and stomach aches too. I do have a history of stomach acid pain, is that the effect of stomach acid? thanks
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of back pain can occur due to trauma, spinal deformities, tense muscles, increased stomach acid, obesity, and other causes. To find out the exact cause, it is necessary to conduct a thorough examination starting from the physical examination and additional examinations needed such as spinal X-rays, CT scans, to MRI.
In cases of increased gastric acid that can cause symptoms such as:
Chest / back pain
Nausea and vomiting
Burp too often
Chest like burning
Mouth feels sour
Out of breath
Therefore, the back pain you feel may be a symptom due to increased stomach acid.
Some things you can do at home to reduce the back pain symptoms that you feel:
Avoid lifting heavy loads
If complaints occur immediately sit / lie down
Maintain body shape
If complaints arise immediately after stomach acid is felt to increase consumption of antacids can help
Use Paracetamol to relieve pain if it is not caused by gastric asthma
Take care of your diet and avoid smoking and alcohol
Postpone consulting to the doctor if the symptoms can be overcome first at home. Stay at home and do social distancing because of the current outbreak of COVID-19. Immediately see a doctor only if there are emergency symptoms such as pain not disappearing with over-the-counter medicines, or there is a border of movement, until a weakness of the body appears on one side.
That's it, hopefully answer it. Thank you
