Thank you for the question.
Shortness is a symptom that often appears and is caused by many causes, depending on the characteristic symptoms of the shortness itself. Basically, tightness can be caused by several types of disorders, such as:
Lung disorders, such as asthma, COPD. Heart disorders, such as pulmonary hypertension, heart attacks, or heart failure. Indigestion (which is usually accompanied by pain in the pit of the stomach), such as acid reflux, dyspepsia syndrome or stomach ulcers. Metabolic disorders, such as diabetes complications. Basically, the most important thing from shortness of breath and heartburn caused by acid reflux is lifestyle regulation, especially diet, because this disease is greatly influenced by diet. The following recommendations you can do to help reduce complaints other than by taking medication given by a doctor regularly:
Eat frequently but little by little, and eat slowly. Reducing foods that contain lots of gas, acid, spicy, oils like fried foods and coconut milk, contain soda, and caffeine such as coffee, tea, chocolate. Take probiotics. Avoid lying down after eating. Adequate nutritional and fluid needs of at least 2-3 liters per day. Regular exercise and sleep 7-9 hours per day. Manage stress well. If after you make lifestyle improvements like the one above and there is a worsening, you can continue to consult a specialist in internal medicine. However, in the midst of the alarming covid-19 outbreak, you should stay at home and reduce visits to hospitals or health centers to reduce the risk of infection, unless there are signs of emergencies such as vomiting and diarrhea more than 5 times per day, shortness of breath until unable to speak, chest pain spreading to the hands, as well as cold sweat.
Hopefully this information can help and hopefully get well soon.
