Hi Erina Razaliani,
It is true that heartburn is most often caused by problems in the stomach which are symptoms of an ulcer, due to the process of increased production of stomach acid, inflammation of the stomach (gastritis), injury to the lining of the stomach, or gastric acid reflux. However, diseases of the stomach rarely cause fever, so if you have changed your lifestyle (for example, avoiding foods that trigger an increase in stomach acid) and after giving medication your symptoms do not improve and other symptoms such as fever develop, it is necessary to suspect a cause. Other causes of heartburn include:
inflammation or infection of the duct or gallbladder stones in the duct or gallbladder infection of the liver (hepatitis) pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas organ) typhoid fever intestinal infection and so on. Therefore, it is recommended that you return to the doctor for control so that your condition and treatment can be evaluated through an examination more complete information to support the diagnosis, such as complete blood counts, ultrasound, X-rays, CT scans, and other examinations. Treatment will be adjusted according to the results of the doctor's diagnosis.
In the meantime, take pain/fever relievers such as paracetamol and antacid drugs to relieve stomach acid according to the recommended dose. Eat soft foods and drink plenty of fluids. Avoid foods/drinks that are acidic, spicy, containing caffeine, coconut milk and fried and avoid lying down in the first 2-3 hours after eating. Make sure you consume food regularly morning, noon and night. Don't forget to get enough rest.
