Frequent Shortness Of Breath And Cramps
Congratulations, my doctor is 21 years old, I have been waiting for 1 night every night, and I have shortness of breath and cramps in my feet and hands. I have a history of stomach acid, but I eat regularly and don’t eat spicy or sour foods.
Thank you for the question.
Shortness of breath, leg and hand cramps, it could indicate your stomach acid disease (dyspepsia) recurrence. Indeed, this disease can recur not only because of improper eating patterns, but also because of fatigue, stress, hormonal fluctuations (in women, for example when menstruating or getting pregnant), side effects of drugs consumed, also due to the influence of consumption of food and drinks certain foods (such as spicy, sour, gassed, caffeinated, fizzy, and alcoholic drinks).
In addition to dyspepsia, tightness and cramps that you feel can also arise due to other factors, such as:
Other digestive disorders, for example food allergies, intestinal inflammation, intestinal obstruction
Respiratory disorders, for example bronchitis, asthma, pleural effusion, pneumothorax, allergies
Other organ system disorders, for example anemia, panic attacks, nerve disorders, drug side effects, heart problems, fibromyalgia, liver disorders, electrolyte balance disorders, and so on
These conditions are mild and can be handled alone at home, but some are the opposite. In general, if you feel mild tightness, you should first take the following treatments before seeing a doctor:
Eat more frequently (3-4 hours) small portions
Don't consume spicy, sour, gassed, caffeinated, fizzy and alcoholic drinks.
After eating, don't lie down right away
Warm compresses to areas that are congested and crampy
Avoid things that make you allergic
Rest more at home, don't go out unless it's an emergency
Don't be too anxious, sad, or afraid to overdo it
Don't just take any medicine
However, you still need to see a doctor or internist if you feel the complaint has not improved for a long time, or if you find heavy tightness, severe vomiting, trembling, weakness, chest like being pressed by heavy objects, and other serious complaints .
Hope this helps ...
