Hello Ade, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading complaints that you feel, these complaints can be caused by several conditions such as:
Gastric acid disease (GERD)
Stomach inflammation (gastritis)
Inflammation in the esophagus
Tension in the esophagus muscles
To ascertain which condition you are experiencing and which organ is causing the complaint, it is highly recommended that you consult your doctor further. Your doctor may recommend you to do some additional tests to make sure and only then will be determined what therapy or treatment should be given to you.
In the meantime, you can try to do a few things below to try to reduce complaints such as:
Make your diet more regular 3 times a day eat a large meal interspersed with 2 light meals and try to always eat around the same time every day
Avoid spicy, sour or high-fat foods
Avoid alcohol, drinks that are high in caffeine, and soft drinks
Do regular exercise
Avoid excessive stress
Get enough rest and quality every day
Avoid lying down immediately after eating
Give a distance of dinner with a minimum sleep time of 4 hours
If the complaint is felt to be very disturbing, you can try taking antacid medicine according to the dosage stated on the package
I hope this helps.
