Shortness Of Breath With Palpitations In Patients With Gastric Acid?
Hello, I’m 23 years old Joseph from Sukabumi, I’ve been suffering from high stomach acid for 3 years (Gerd), the only complaints I feel are bloating and sesek and my heart sometimes beats fast like I’m exhausted/sports out. My brobat has almost run out of millions of rupiah, but it’s not getting better. One time I did a blood test at a hospital, and the result was that my blood was normal, he said, there was no serious illness. there are no wounds in the stomach and the doctor only advised me to take a lot of rest and eat regularly..rnrnBut what I feel in my body is different, from what the doctor said (who said there was no serious illness in my body). my body, even though if it relapses, it’s like you want to die.rnrnCan a blood test diagnose a certain disease?
Hi Yosep, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
GERD or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease is a disease caused by stomach acid disorders that rise to the top of the esophagus or throat, so the sufferer feels nauseous, vomits and feels hot in the chest. GERD is caused by a weak valve at the bottom of the esophagus that should be closed tightly. Symptoms of GERD are burning in the chest to the throat, chest pain, difficulty swallowing, dry cough, sore throat, nausea and vomiting. Based on your story, the symptoms you are experiencing apart from GERD could also be other possibilities, namely:
Psychological disorders or stress Heart disorders Gallbladder inflammation Gallstones IBS or irritable bowel syndrome You should check your condition with a specialist in internal medicine, in determining the diagnosis of the symptoms you are experiencing, the doctor will not only do blood tests, but the doctor will perform an examination physical examination, abdominal ultrasound examination, abdominal CT scan, endoscopy if needed, and the doctor will also interview the clinical course of your disease. So blood tests laboratory tests can not determine the diagnosis, but as a support for determining the diagnosis.
Some things you can do at home are
Eat regularly Avoid excessive stress or anxiety Avoid spicy or acidic foods Avoid caffeine or alcoholic beverages Regular exercise Thank you, hopefully useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
