Heartburn Accompanied By Heat And Pain In The Spine?
Morning … I have an ulcer … but coupled with heat and back pain … is that a symptom of chronic heartburn?
Thank you for the question.
Heartburn (dyspepsia) is typically characterized by discomfort, nausea, pain, tightness, bloating, and lumps that appear dominant in the gut. These complaints, if you appear accompanied by heat and pain around the back may indicate that you have GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease. This condition occurs when there is a portion of stomach acid that goes back up the throat and causes irritation. The reason could be due to hiatal hernias, excessive eating of fatty and oily foods, obesity, pregnancy, the influence of drugs, and certain connective tissue disorders.
It could also, besides due to GERD, your complaints arise due to other factors, such as gastritis, cholangitis, pancreatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, nerve nerve, viral or bacterial infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, psychological disorders, and so on. Your condition can appear purely due to heartburn, or it might not.
The good thing is, you first try to resolve your complaint by:
Eat a little but often
Don't overeat oily and fatty foods
Also reduce consumption of spicy foods, which contain lots of gas
Don't drink caffeinated, fizzy, or even alcoholic drinks
Eat food that is easier to digest first
Drink more warm water
Don't eat too much before going to bed
Warm compresses on your back and solar plexus
Don't wear clothes that are too tight
Do not take any medicine
No fear or excessive panic
Sleep more regularly, do not always exertion too tired
If the steps above have not been able to alleviate your complaints, or if you appear shortness, vomiting, palpitations, weakness, cold sweat, and other severe complaints that interfere with activities, it is better to check yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine to be handled properly according to the cause yes..
I hope this helps.
