Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is the occurrence of reflux or backflow of stomach acid through the esophageal valve that is not functioning normally. This condition occurs in chronic gastric disease. Symptoms experienced such as burning and burning in the back of the chest or solar plexus and can spread to the neck accompanied by nausea and vomiting, or a sour taste in the mouth, or a sensation of shortness of breath.
Shortness of breath occurs due to stomach acid which irritates the esophagus to cause narrowing of the airways that can be life threatening in severe cases. Symptoms appear especially after eating with large volumes and fatty. This complaint is made worse by lying on your back or at night.
GERD treatment consists of avoiding precipitating factors, improving lifestyle, and drug therapy. Drug therapy is by giving a group of high-dose Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI) for 7-14 days on the recommendation of a doctor. In addition, drugs can also be given to trigger gastric movements more quickly.
Lifestyle modification, is a lifestyle arrangement that can be done by:
1. Lose weight if you are obese
2. Raise the head ± 15-20 cm / keep the head higher while lying down.
3. Dinner no later than 2-3 hours before bedtime.
4. Avoid foods that can stimulate GERD such as chocolate, caffeinated drinks, alcohol, and fatty-acid-spicy foods.
That's all, hope you can help
