Morning doc, why does my throat itch like my mouth tastes paiting, when I eat it feels like it’s been jammed, already 3 days ago, yesterday I was exhausted because of stomach acid, does this also include stomach acid?
Hello Atik ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Gastric acid, or in medical language is called GERD, is a condition in which gastric acid rises into the esophagus and causes a burning sensation in the chest. Symptoms arising from this disease are:
- A lump in the throat, especially when swallowing
- Nauseous vomit
- Easy to fill
- Cough without phlegm especially at night
A lump in the throat can be caused because when stomach acid rises the walls of the esophagus and the mouth can become irritated.
Some things that can alleviate complaints so that they do not recur again are: Consumption of drugs according to complaints or given by doctors, usually the drugs given are PPI, antacids or H2 receptor blockers, avoid sleep after eating, give a distance of 2 to 3 hours after eating , avoid foods that trigger stomach acid to increase such as spicy foods, instant noodles, coffee, sour drinks, avoid cigarettes and alcoholic beverages, set a good and correct diet that is eating small portions but often. If the complaint is felt not to improve even if you eat regularly, you can still feel a lump in the throat that is accompanied by a persistent cough, cold, fever, left abdominal pain or the middle of the stomach so that you can not move immediately to the doctor.
But in situations where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so as not to be exposed to the virus, if there are complaints such as sore throats that get worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by more fever from 38 degrees Celsius, coughs, colds that do not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though you have tried to take medicine, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further examination.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
