Fever Is Accompanied By Coughing Colds When Stomach Acid Recurs?
Mlm I want to ask whether in the recurrence of an ulcer is always accompanied by a fever? And I happen to cough with a cold too
Hello Indah, thank you for the question.
Heartburn or dyspepsia is a collection of symptoms characterized by heartburn, bloating, can be accompanied by nausea and vomiting, and rarely cause fever, unless caused by infection. Heartburn usually occurs due to increased stomach acid. Gastric acid can increase due to:
Unhealthy lifestyles, such as smoking, consuming too much caffeine, alcohol, soft drinks, eating too fast or too much.
Eating foods that are too spicy, fatty, oily
Stress or psychological factors
Gastrointestinal disorders or complications from certain medical conditions
Side effects of drugs, such as antibiotics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) commonly used to reduce pain, and others.
Fever is a condition where the body temperature exceeds normal (more than 38.5 degrees C) and arises as a body's defense response to defeat germs or disease. Fever can be caused by several things, such as:
Infection, respiratory infections, digestive tract infections, etc. This infection is generally caused by bacteria, viruses, or parasites.
Autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, grave disease, etc.
Malignancies, such as leukemia or other malignancies
Or in patients with decreased endurance, such as patients with HIV, chemotherapy, or consumption of immune system suppressants.
Fever and stomach ulcers are not directly related, but if heartburn arises due to infection, then fever can occur. Coughing a cold in this case if suspected of being an infection then it can also cause complaints of fever. To be sure, you should consult a doctor. Symptoms of heartburn generally can heal itself, but if complaints are felt continuously, there is no improvement, or even more severe you should consult a doctor. The doctor will do a direct examination and additional examinations such as blood tests, ultrasound, endoscopy, and others. Treatment will be adjusted to the condition and severity of the disease. To reduce and prevent complaints, you should do a healthy lifestyle, eat regularly, eat healthy and nutritious foods, eat small portions and often to help reduce nausea, eat soft foods first, avoid foods that are too spicy, oily, coconut milk, avoid cigarettes , caffeine, alcohol, soft drinks, and also avoid eating too fast or too much. Increase your consumption of water, regular exercise, and adequate rest. If you feel complaints of abdominal pain accompanied by black stools, weakness, and vomiting of blood you should immediately consult a doctor.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
