Heartburn Until You Can’t Stand And Walk?
night, I’m fitria, I want to ask about my stomach pain which has been around for a long time which lasted around 2010, every time I experience this ulcer, my stomach hurts, and sometimes my breath becomes short of breath, is it still in the normal stage or what? ? every time I go to the doctor, at least I am given medicine for ulcers and even then the pain only goes away temporarily and continues again when the medicine runs out, what do you suggest? thank you
Hello good morning Fitria.
Heartburn accompanied by a feeling of tightness in the chest can be caused by several possibilities, namely:
inflammation of the stomach (gastritis/gastritis) chronic acid reflux disease (GERD) Gastric ulcers (gastric ulcers), which are sores on the surface of the stomach wall due to the eroded lining of the stomach wall. The cause is infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. Risk factors that can cause this disease include frequent recurrence of ulcers, alcohol consumption, and smoking. It should be noted that gastric disease is closely related to increased stomach acid, some habits that can increase stomach acid and should be avoided include:
psychological stress, the habit of late eating, the habit of consuming acidic, spicy, oily, and coconut milk foods, the habit of consuming caffeinated drinks, the habit of consuming foods containing yeast, Even though gastric treatment has been given, but if these habits are still practiced, the disease in the stomach will continue to recur. Therefore, controlling lifestyle is something that plays a role.
Seeing that you have felt this complaint for a long time and often recur, it is recommended that you see a doctor (especially an internal medicine specialist). The doctor will perform a physical examination, and if deemed necessary, the doctor may recommend an endoscopy.
That's all, hope it helps.
