, can people with GERD take paracetamol or ibuprofen when they have a fever?

1 Answer:

Hello Esti, Thank you for the question.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition of stomach acid flowing into the esophagus due to weakening of the lower esophagus. This muscle is responsible for opening and closing when food / drinks enter the stomach. If this muscle weakens, stomach acid can return to the esophagus and cause a number of symptoms in patients. Symptoms experienced by people with GERD are heartburn or chest pain, burning, belching, flatulence, nausea, vomiting, easy satiety, sore throat, a lump in the throat, dry cough.

If GERD sufferers have a fever, taking paracetamol is a better choice because paracetamol has no side effects on the stomach. Ibuprofen can also be used to relieve fever but this drug has side effects on the stomach so it should be avoided in people with GERD. Do not forget to try to find out the cause of fever because this complaint is usually associated with infections in the body such as flu, ear infections, pneumonia, tuberculosis, dengue fever, and others. If you have a fever for days, do not hesitate to see a doctor for further examination and treatment.

Please continue to adjust your diet and lifestyle to address GERD complaints, as follows:

avoid eating large portions, you should eat small portions but more often
avoid spicy, sour, and oily foods
Avoid alcoholic, caffeinated, and fizzy drinks
avoid lying down after eating
lose weight if you have excess weight
avoid smoking

Please consult with a specialist in internal medicine if your GERD complaint is not handled optimally.

Hopefully this information is useful.
