Prolonged Sore Throat With A History Of Stomach Ulcers?
I am a person who has a history of stomach ulcers that recur quite often, then my throat has been hurting for 4 months. the pain is only at night when I want to sleep and breathing hurts and causes me to be unable to sleep. Then lately my breath has been short of breath like someone who has just cried? My leg muscles are weak and if I force myself to breathe normally, I immediately feel nauseous. but my body doesn’t have a fever, guess what disease this is
Hi Abdul Hadi,
Ulcer disease or dyspepsia is a term used for pain originating from the esophagus, stomach, and or small intestine caused by irritation / open wounds from the walls of these organs. This can be triggered by the habit of delaying eating, H. Pylori bacterial infection, stress or side effects of drugs. Symptoms that are often caused include: Pain in the pit of the stomach, frequent burping, nausea and vomiting, etc.
The complaints you feel can be caused by complications from heartburn or stomach acid rising into the esophagus (upper respiratory tract) known as GERD. However, to make sure the doctor needs to carry out an in-person examination, ask for a deeper history of your complaints so that you can get the appropriate treatment.
What you can do right now is to eat small portions but often, avoid foods that are too sour and spicy, avoid the habit of sleeping right after eating, manage stress well and use a pillow that is high enough when sleeping to prevent stomach acid from rising.
And if you feel that your complaints are getting annoying, you should immediately check with your doctor
Hopefully this information is useful, and I wish you a speedy recovery
