A good afternoon,. Hello, I want to ask, I checked and went to see a specialist doctor, clinic and general hospital. I have a stomach infection, and now the treatment process has not been healed for more than 3 months, but strangely the symptoms of gastric ifeksi are generally not felt like nausea, dizziness, vomiting, etc., it’s just that I feel bloating and severe shortness of breath. . . For ways to overcome shortness of breath in addition to taking medication there?
Hello Fandy, Wa'alaikum greetings, good evening ..
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com ...
The symptoms of gastric acid disease are variously caused by the condition of stomach acid which rises so that it can irritate the walls of the esophagus and mouth. Symptoms of stomach acid disease will also get worse if you are less able to manage stress in your daily life. Symptoms that often occur one of them is a burning sensation in the chest (heartburn) and a full sensation in the stomach even breathing that feels heavy to feel shortness of breath. However, shortness of breath symptoms can be experienced by people with heart attacks. It is very important to distinguish between shortness of breath caused by acid reflux disease and shortness of breath caused by a heart attack.
Shortness of breath due to a heart attack is usually accompanied by severe pain in the chest area such as crushed or depressed heavy objects. The feeling can spread to the back, shoulders, upper abdomen, jaw and arms. In addition, the heartbeat will run faster and irregularly. While shortness of breath that occurs due to stomach acid disease will usually be accompanied by other symptoms such as flatulence, heartburn, nausea, and belching. Some people with acid reflux feel it when they are late eating and some others feel it after eating.
Shortness of breath that you experience should not be underestimated. You need to make sure that shortness of breath that occurs is not due to a heart attack. Immediately consult your doctor to be sure of the cause. Meanwhile, to reduce the feeling of tightness, you can regulate your breath with simple relaxation techniques. Immediately go to a spacious, calm and open place to get fresh air. Try sitting up straight, close your eyes, then take a deep breath using the nose until the chest and abdomen feel swollen, hold for 3 to 6 seconds, then exhale slowly through the mouth. Repeat the breath stage for several minutes until you can regulate the breath more calmly. I hope this helps..
