Shortness Of Chest When Breathing, Abdominal Discomfort, Nausea And Bitter Mouth?
Good evening Doctor, I experience a slight headache and stuffiness / shortness when breathing, accompanied by discomfort in the stomach, nausea, and when I wake up in the morning my mouth always feels bitter. This often recurs. In fact, I often go to the doctor to give stomach medicine, sometimes to the point of being bored. Please input and suggestions? Thank you
Hello Wahyu, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Responding to what you said, I really appreciate your self-awareness. Some diseases that you might suffer at this time in accordance with the complaint you mentioned are
Gastritis. Gastric ulcer. GERD / Gastroesofageal reflux disease. In all three of the above possibilities that have similar complaints, it is caused by the underlying cause is the increase in your stomach acid caused by one thing or another. In diagnosing a doctor must conduct a thorough examination, both in terms of history, physical examination, or supporting examinations if needed such as endoscopy, urea breath test or abdominal ultrasound. In its treatment, success is not only based on drugs given by doctors, but the most important factor is from the patient himself.
Some suggestions that I can give to you are as follows:
Avoid stress, because in some cases stress can trigger acid reflux. Avoid foods that are spicy, or too sour. Avoid drinking coffee, alcohol, or drinks that are too sour. Improve your eating patterns and time. When relapsing, it's best if you don't eat too much because it can make your stomach work harder. Eat a little but often. You must always be ready for drugs that work to reduce stomach acid, or gastric lining because at any time complaints can come. Exercise regularly, and rest enough. That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
