Hi Eva,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is a term to describe stomach acid that rises into the esophagus and causes irritation. This condition can be experienced by anyone, especially those who are overweight, pregnant women, have abnormalities in the stomach (for example hiatal hernias), have disorders in fish tissue (such as scleroderma), smoke, often overeat before bed, consume excessive alcohol or caffeine , or also those taking certain drugs (for example aspirin). The various conditions above can make the smooth muscle ring that should limit the stomach and esophagus fail to close properly. As a result, some acid from the stomach rises and irritates the esophagus.

The esophagus itself is part of the digestive tract located in the middle of the chest. Therefore, symptoms of GERD are dominantly felt in the middle of the chest. Complaints that arise are usually in the form of a chest that feels hot, sore, tightness, lumps, phlegm, bloating, full, nausea, and so on. In addition to chest pain, it can also, sufferers experience other complaints, for example coughing, palpitations, difficulty swallowing, and abdominal pain.

If you experience a variety of symptoms of GERD above, you should consult yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. After the diagnosis of GERD is established, treatment will usually be given by doctors with drugs, such as antacids, H2 receptor blockers, proton pump inhibitors, anticinetics, to surgery if needed.

To reduce the pain in your chest, you can use warm water compresses first. Also reduce the consumption of foods that are too acidic, fatty, fried, spicy, onion, and caffeinated and alcoholic drinks. Eat small portions but often, do not overeat when approaching bedtime. Always maintain your ideal body weight, i.e. in addition to dietary arrangements, it is also accompanied by regular exercise.

Hope this helps ...
