Out Of Breath?
Greetings doctor. I used to have shortness of breath as gastric. But it took a long time to have shortness of breath, x now, sometimes it’s gastric but x has shortness of breath, but 2 days of shortness of breath is coming back. Can the doctor to know as die.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Gastric disorders (gastric) can indeed cause shortness of breath. Some of the types of interference in question can be:
GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa) Gastric ulcers (ulcers in the stomach wall) Gastric cancer (malignant tumors in the stomach), etc. These various disorders can trigger tightness because they trigger an increase in stomach acid production which can cause enough gastric distension great to press the surrounding organs, including the lungs. Typically, the tightness that appears purely due to gastric disorders generally gets worse before or after eating, after consuming foods that are too spicy, acidic, fatty, fried, contain a lot of gas, or also contain a lot of caffeine. Consumption of several types of drugs (eg NSAIDs, aspirin, theophylline, digoxin), stress, hormonal changes (for example just before menstruation or early pregnancy) are known to also aggravate this complaint.
However, you also need to know that in addition to stomach disorders, shortness of breath can also occur due to other trigger factors, for example:
Lung disorders: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, pneumothorax Heart disorders: congestive heart failure, cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias Heart and lung disorders: cor pulmonale, pulmonary embolism Other, such as acid-base balance disorders, allergies, panic attacks, etc. great and often recurring you should check directly with your doctor so that further treatment is done .. If it is purely caused by gastric disorders, this tightness will generally improve with the administration of several types of drugs that can neutralize stomach acid. However, if another factor is suspected, your doctor may also suggest that you undergo further tests, such as X-rays, ultrasound, blood tests, and so on.
At this time, to reduce shortness of breath, you should avoid things that often trigger your shortness of breath, including by limiting foods that can worsen shortness of breath, for example:
Spicy foods Sour foods, deep-fried cabbage, mustard greens, tubers Coffee, tea, soda Alcohol Get used to eating regularly with small portions, but avoid eating before bedtime. If there are certain substances that you are allergic to, avoid those triggers. Exercise regularly and also avoid stress, panic, and excessive anxiety so that the tightness doesn't recur.
I hope this helps.
