Hello Imam Priadi,
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a disorder that is often referred to as stomach acid disease by the laity. Caused by interference with the closure of the valve above the stomach, which causes stomach acid that should be in the stomach, up to the upper digestive tract (esophagus, mouth). GERD risk factors are obesity, lying down immediately after eating, eating too much, elderly, pregnant women, and smoking.
Symptoms of GERD include:
Heartburn or burning sensation in the chest, often in the morning or after lying down
Nausea and vomiting
Bad taste in the pit of the stomach
Mouth feels sour
The diagnosis of GERD is based on examinations by doctors of complaints experienced by patients, physical examination, and supporting examinations such as gastroscopy, examination of esophageal pH, esophageal muscle strength tests.
Treatment of GERD is not instantaneous and includes administration of drugs and lifestyle changes. Patients with GERD are advised not to lie down immediately after eating, lose weight, eat smaller (but more frequent) portions, and stop smoking. The drugs given aim to neutralize stomach acid, decrease stomach acid production, accelerate gastric emptying. In severe cases, surgery can be done to improve the function of the gastric valve. Untreated GERD causes ongoing irritation of the esophagus to acidic substances so that sores, scarring, and esophageal cancer can occur.
It is best to check with your doctor first to get an appropriate diagnosis. Not necessarily the complaint you are experiencing is GERD. Bad complaints in the pit of the stomach can occur due to abnormalities in the stomach, digestive tract (including gastroenteritis that gives complaints of diarrhea / diarrhea), pancreas, liver, billiard system, and so on. To get the appropriate treatment certainly needs to be determined the right diagnosis in advance. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
