Management Of Stomach Acid Pain Accompanied By Shortness Of Breath, Chest And Throat Pain
Doc same as I want to ask, I have gastric acid pain, it has been two weeks, my stomach acid does not rise again only I am astray breathing while sleeping, my body is weak, and my throat hurts no sound, that’s how the explanation doc.
Thank you for the question.
Body that feels weak with tightness and uncomfortable sensation in the throat can indeed be the impact of an increase in stomach acid, or in the medical realm called GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). This condition occurs when some acid from the stomach rises and irritates the throat due to the limiting valve which fails to close completely. In most cases, this condition is not dangerous, but indeed healing sometimes takes a long time.
Not only GERD, weakness, tightness, and uncomfortable sensations in the throat that you feel can also arise due to other causes, for example viral or bacterial infections, allergies or irritations, lack of nutrition, side effects of drugs, bronchitis, pneumonia, heart problems, immune disorders , even benign or malignant tumors around the throat.
To improve, this condition should be treated first by:
Eat regularly, small portions but often
First reduce the habit of consuming foods that are spicy, fatty, oily, gassed, and also sour
Expand to eat foods that are easily digested and warm soup
Do not eat before going to bed, give a break 1-2 hours
Drink more, especially water, limit caffeinated and fizzy drinks
Warm compresses on the throat and chest that are uncomfortable
Rest more, don't stress
Do not take any medicine, unless prescribed by a doctor
If after undergoing the tips above your complaint does not also improve, or if you feel tightness and vomiting that is very great, you should immediately consult a doctor or doctor of internal medicine, yes. Worry, other than because of GERD, your complaints arise due to causes others are more serious and require immediate treatment.
I hope this helps.
