Hello Hannyfah, thanks for asking.
The use of the term gastric acid increases, is actually less precise and rather difficult to estimate the diagnosis. The possibility that referred to as acid reflux is a GERD condition or it can also be a condition of chronic gastritis. GERD can cause damage to the valve that separates the stomach and esophagus (esophagus). Damage to the valve can cause stomach contents that are acidic, turned upward towards the esophagus and throat. As a result, symptoms of sore throat appear, dry cough, bad breath, thrush, burning sensation or pain along the chest and back. Sometimes pain can spread to the shoulders, neck and arms. In addition, GERD and gastritis are also accompanied by gastric wall damage that causes symptoms of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, ulcerative pain, bloating, and no appetite.
In the current pandemic, people are not recommended to go to the doctor except for emergency cases. It is intended to minimize the risk of transmission and provide opportunities for medical personnel to treat more serious patients. In the case of gastric problems, you can go to the doctor if:
severe nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, accompanied by severe abdominal pain, so that you cannot eat and drink at all. the condition continues to weaken due to lack of nutrients and fluids. vomiting or defecating blood. If you do not currently experience these symptoms, postpone seeing a doctor, so you do not risk exposure or transmit the corona virus. Make sure you eat small portions (half of normal) but often (around 5-6 times a day). In between meals, you can try eating watery and non-acidic fruits, or other easily digested foods such as bread, potatoes, sweet potatoes. Choose the type of food that is not greasy and not too seasoned. Eat a little at a time, don't jump in too much. After eating do not lie down immediately, wait at least 2 hours. Drink 2 L water per day. For each vomiting or diarrhea, drink 200 ml ORS. Position the body 45 degrees when lying down, with the head higher than the body. If you have a medication for stomach problems, you can take the drug regularly, according to the dosage listed and not excessive. Don't forget to take precautions against COVID-19, even if you are at home.
Hopefully this information can help you to recover and be healthy again. Regards.
