Is There A Relationship Between Stomach Acid And Hypertension?
Hello, I have checked my blood pressure this month 2 times. In the beginning, I coughed and caught a cold but after that I checked that my blood pressure was high, around 130/90, until the last I checked it was 140. I also burped continuously, not a normal burp, which once stopped, but could start. Because I previously had a history of stomach acid. Is there a connection between my stomach acid and my hypertension? Or more because of psychological pressure because I honestly are working on my thesis, but this month I was sick with the illness that came and went without recovery.
Hello, thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com team in advance.
In someone with stomach acid disease will generally cause pain, this pain can increase blood pressure. In addition, high blood pressure can also be caused by stress that you experience. This stress can also increase the onset of stomach acid disease. Therefore, these conditions are related to one another. You should start to overcome this by carrying out a healthy lifestyle, that is by managing stress well, getting adequate rest, doing regular exercise, eating regularly, avoiding lying down straight after eating, avoiding spicy and acidic foods, consuming plain water enough, and maintain an ideal body weight. If your complaint does not improve, you should consult your doctor again.
