Hello, I want to ask. Since on the second day of Ramadan fasting or it has been around 12 days I feel shortness of breath that is unusual, the breath tends to be shorter than usual. My habit is due to lack of sleep, after dawn I go back to sleep until 7 o’clock, and when I wake up breathing feels different and my head becomes dizzy. Is there a connection between shortness of breath (inhaling and discharging air as usual) with sleep after dawn or is there another indication? Thank you

Hello Maula,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Conditions where the process of breathing into something done consciously can indeed be classified as shortness of breath. This condition, should not occur directly related to your habit of going back to sleep after dawn. However, in some people, lying down (including sleeping) at a time adjacent to a large meal (including eating a meal) can indeed trigger reflux (backflow) of stomach acid into the throat. This can cause a sensation of tightness, burning, heat, lumps, nausea, to phlegm which would interfere with breathing. Complaints can be felt more severe if at dawn you consume excessive food that is oily, fatty, and contains a lot of gas. In the medical realm, this condition is called GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Obese people, who often wear tight clothes, pregnant women, people with hiatal hernias, or people who consume certain types of drugs can have a higher risk of developing this disease. As a result of inefficient breathing process, oxygen intake to the brain can be reduced until finally arises dizziness.


In addition to GERD, it may also be shortness and dizziness that you experience due to other triggers, such as gastritis, cholangitis, allergies, intolerance or malabsorption, bronchitis, asthma, pneumothorax, psychosomatic disorders, panic attacks, and so on.


Considering the occurrence of your complaint has been around long enough, you should consult yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine in order to be given appropriate treatment. If the doctor really suspects GERD, several types of stomach acid suppressants, gastric motility inhibitors, as well as gastric lining can be given by the doctor if necessary. Or, in more severe cases, your doctor may also direct you to undergo further tests, such as endoscopy.


At home, what you can do right now:

When breaking and dawn, don't eat too much. Eat small portions but often 3-4 hours.
Reduce consumption of foods that are oily, greasy, and contain a lot of gas
Don't also get used to consuming caffeinated and excessive carbonated drinks
After a large meal, don't lie down immediately, give a pause of at least 2 hours
Not taking drugs carelessly
Exercise so that the ideal body weight is maintained
Avoid excessive mental stress
Do not wear clothes that are too tight in the chest and stomach area
Don't smoke or consume alcohol

Hope this helps ...
