Hi Selly Agustin,
The location you are referring to is called the solar plexus, and heartburn can be caused by conditions such as:
ulcer symptoms, due to increased production of stomach acid, stomach inflammation (gastritis), gastric ulcers (sores in the stomach), or ulcers in the 12 finger intestine (intestine after stomach) stomach acid reflux disease inflammation or bile duct stones / gallbladder infection of the liver ( hepatitis), accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, jaundice, and a history of exposure to the hepatitis virus, inflammation of the pancreas, psychological factors. can be examined thoroughly, if necessary, supporting examinations such as blood tests, ultrasound, etc. Treatment will be adjusted according to the results of the diagnosis established by the doctor.
Some other suggestions that you need to pay attention to to help reduce / prevent recurring complaints:
take antacid drugs according to the recommended dose to help relieve nausea. Avoid consuming spicy, acidic, oily, and caffeinated foods/drinks. Set a meal schedule, try to eat small portions but often (every 3-4 hours). if necessary, consume foods in the form of soft soups after eating, avoid lying down for the first 2-3 hours Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol Adequate rest at night Manage stressors You can read related articles: heartburn
