Good evening doctor r nI want to ask icha r nI have been suffering from heartburn for 2 weeks, I have already treated it until I went to the doctor but the disease still disappears and always recurs and often very often at midnight when I am not fasting. The usual medicines that I buy at the pharmacy don’t seem to work for my disease. The question is, what is the danger of gastric disease like this and should you go to the hospital or do a lab check / x-ray? How good? Thanks for helping.

Hi Icha .. Thank you for the question given.


Heartburn is a picture of pain in the upper abdomen that can originate in the stomach, esophagus, or small intestine. Symptoms that often arise include: abdominal pain in the gut or in the upper left stomach, feeling bloated, quickly full, nausea, vomiting, frequent belching, until the chest feels hot. The cause of this complaint could be due to an H. pylori bacterial infection, lka on the stomach wall, obesity, consuming lots of fatty and spicy foods, increased stomach acid, and psychological stress. Besides that it can also be caused by:


GERD / acid reflux
Gatritis
Chronic gastritis

If the symptoms you are experiencing have been prolonged and recurring, there is nausea, vomiting, and decreased appetite, then it's a good idea to see a doctor. So that doctors can carry out direct examinations. In addition, abdominal ultrasound, gastric fluid biopsy can be performed to see whether H.pylori bacteria are present, or an endoscopy can be recommended. From the examination, it will be known the cause of your complaint.


Apart from that you can do:

Eat regularly with small portions but more frequent
Avoid fatty, spicy, and sour foods
Avoid alcohol, smoking, caffeine
Avoid psychological stress
