How To Deal With Rising Stomach Acid?
Hello doctor .. My child is 24 years old u0026amp; currently experiencing heartburn but not acute. My question is whether if stomach acid rises it will cause headaches which then cause the hands. my child’s legs are shaking alone / aren’t they trembling? When the headache subsides, vibrate in hand u0026amp; his leg will also disappear. How do you deal with a sudden headache recurrence?
Hello Mrs. Lisa Nippon, thank you for consulting with us on HealthReplies.com. Basically, headache symptoms can occur due to gastric disorders such as acid reflux disease / GERD. This is due to the formation of gas in the stomach caused by food not digested properly by the stomach acid in the stomach, which then by the bacteria in the digestive tract of food will be fermented and produce gas that can make bloating, when the gas comes out through the mouth and inhaled by the sense of smell, then this gas will exert pressure on the brain wall so that symptoms of headaches will arise.
But of course the headaches that arise due to interference with stomach acid will not cause tremors or trembling hands and feet unconsciously. Basically tremors are caused by a disturbance in the part of the brain that functions in regulating muscle movements. Some types of tremors are inherited in families but can also be caused by certain medical conditions such as:
stroke hyperthyroidism Multiple sclerosis Parkinson's head injury Liver failure Side effects of drugs such as asthma drugs, corticosteroids and some antidepressant drugs in general emergence of the tremor. However, it is difficult for us to establish the cause because we do not carry out checks on your child directly. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you take you with you to the nearest health service such as a client or even a hospital so that your child is examined by a doctor or expert doctor such as a pediatrician and neurologist. With a complete examination the hope is that the underlying cause can be found, and treatment can be done immediately, before the symptoms appear more frequently and more severely. The possibility of additional tests will also be done such as complete nerve examination, blood laboratory tests, CT scans or MRI scans and also EMG / electromyogram to assess the response of muscles to nerve stimulation.
The initial step of handling at home to reduce the appearance of tremors is to do a few simple things you can do such as:
give your child time to sleep and get enough rest because fatigue can trigger tremors, reduce the consumption of bottled drinks and increase mineral water consumption. Encourage your child to do light exercise to strengthen the muscles in his hands and feet, so that we can convey, hopefully information from us can be useful for you. thanks.
