Heartburn To Shortness Of Breath?
Night, the first month I often suddenly experienced pain near the solar plexus then in the following month it was no longer there but I had difficulty taking breath, it felt like I had to use my mouth to breathe especially when the sitting position was very difficult. Why is that? Thanks
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain around the pit of the stomach and shortness of breath can be two related conditions, but they can also be. One of the most common causes of these two complaints is dyspepsia syndrome. This condition can arise due to increased stomach acid production or the digestive tract that has an excessive sensitivity to stomach acid, bile acids, and fatty acids.
Triggers of dyspepsia itself are categorized into 2, namely:
functional dyspepsia; the cause is not clear. Organic dyspepsia; triggered by gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), cholangitis (inflammation of the gallbladder), cholelithiasis (gallstones), stomach ulcers, and so on. certain drugs, such as NSAIDs, aspirin, digoxin, and so on.
It is also possible that the complaints you feel arise due to other causes that are not necessarily related. Here are some other possibilities:
Causes of pain around the solar plexus: bronchitis, myalgia, heart attack, pneumonia Causes of shortness of breath: allergies, bronchial asthma, congestive heart failure, excessive anxiety disorders, psychosomatic disorders, etc. How much pain and tightness are you currently experiencing? Does it make it difficult for you to carry out light activities?
If yes, you should immediately go to the doctor. The doctor will adjust the treatment according to the possible cause of your complaint, either by giving medication or by conducting further tests, such as x-rays, ultrasound, heart records, and so on.
Shortness of breath if not handled properly can certainly prevent you from performing optimally. Therefore, in addition to seeing a doctor, to optimize healing, you should also take the following efforts:
Don't get used to eating irregularly. Reduce consumption of spicy and oily foods. Limit caffeine. Avoid alcohol and cigarettes. Eat small portions but regularly. Don't get into the habit of eating before bed. Exercise diligently. Avoid too much stress. enough hope it helps..
