How To Treat A Burning Sensation In The Chest That Spreads To The Neck?
Hello Diah, Thank you for the question.
Your complaint may be caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). GERD can occur if the lower muscles of the esophagus weaken and cause stomach acid to rise back into the esophagus. This condition causes a number of symptoms such as heartburn or chest pain that feels like burning or heat, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, belching, dry cough, lump in the neck, and hoarseness. In addition, your complaint can also be caused by gastritis or stomach ulcers. Given that this complaint has occurred for 3 months, you should consult with a specialist in further internal medicine. The doctor needs to ask about your complaints and examine you before giving appropriate treatment. For a while, you can try using an over-the-counter ulcer drug at a pharmacy. Furthermore, you are also encouraged to take the following recommendations:
avoid consuming spicy, sour, oily, and fatty foods
avoid the consumption of chocolate and peppermint
avoid consuming large portions of food, preferably in small portions but more often
Eat dinner no later than 3 hours before bedtime
avoid lying down after eating
Avoid consumption of caffeinated, fizzy, and alcoholic drinks
lose weight if you have excessive weight
Sleepy complaints can occur to anyone. These complaints can be caused by lack of rest time, often waking up at night, boredom, high stress levels, side effects of consuming certain drugs, and others. If you have enough rest, you can try to find motivation every day because if you feel bored with your work or your routine, then this condition can also cause you to be sleepy. In addition, you are also advised to regularly take a break from your work if you have to work all day. Try to exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes every day. Do not hesitate to consult a doctor if the complaint is accompanied by excessive fatigue or if the drowsiness is difficult to withstand until you often fall asleep accidentally.
Hopefully this information helps you.
