Overcoming Heartburn That Does Not Go Away Despite Taking Medication?
In the afternoon, I wanted to ask the doctor. I asked the younger brother, my brother, I had been feeling sorry for a few days, even though I had taken medicine for a problem, but I still felt the problem.
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, the symptoms of "heartburn" as what exactly is your sister experiencing?
Heartburn in the medical realm is called gastritis (inflammation of the stomach). This condition is clinically often characterized by discomfort around the solar plexus, can be nausea, sore, tightness, lumps, bloating, and also full. In more severe cases, the patient may also experience vomiting, sputum bleeding, loss of appetite, even weight loss that is quite drastic because of this condition. The causes of gastritis itself can vary, ranging from bacterial infections, autoimmune disorders, drug side effects, aging, alcoholism, stress, and so on.
For doctors alone, it is not easy to establish a diagnosis of gastritis, especially for ordinary people. Because, not infrequently, a variety of other diseases can also have clinical symptoms very similar to gastritis even though the treatment is much different, for example gastroesophageal reflux disease, cholangitis, cholecystitis, gallstones, pancreatitis, gallbladder cancer, pancreatic cancer, liver disorders, food allergies, malabsorption food, inflammation of the intestine, gastroenteritis, irritable bowel syndrome, bronchitis, pneumonia, pleurisy, heart attack, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, psychological disorders, and so on. Therefore, a diagnosis of gastritis can only be made if your younger sibling has checked his complaint directly to the doctor or internist.
Have you checked your sister to the doctor? Is the diagnosis of stomach ulcers the doctor who made it directly? If so, didn't the doctor also give your sister the treatment?
Overcoming symptoms like gastritis should not be careless. First, you need to have your sister checked by a doctor so that the disease can be properly evaluated for its causes and treatment. At home, so that your complaints improve, you can do it first:
Don't give your sister any medicine
Compress the stomach or chest that feels uncomfortable with warm water
Remind your sister to eat little but often
If there are certain foods or drinks that make complaints worse, don't consume them first
Let your sister rest a lot
Don't stress him or fear excessive
Accompany him to live a healthy lifestyle
Hope this helps ...
