Shortness Of Chest When Breathing And Taking Medicine Has Not Healed?
It feels like my chest is tight when breathing. And I’ve tried going to the doctor, it says that my stomach acid is rising.
Hello Lulu, Thank you for the question.
Shortness of breath is one of the symptoms that can occur to anyone. These symptoms can be caused by a variety of health conditions, not always due to a disturbance in the respiratory system. Symptoms of shortness of breath can be accompanied by symptoms of cough, runny nose, nasal congestion, chest pain, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, belching, palpitations, cold sweat, fever, and others. Acid reflux disease is indeed one of the causes of shortness of breath. Gastric acid disease is caused by stomach acid returning to the esophagus because the muscles in the lower esophagus are weakened. In addition to shortness of breath, this condition can cause symptoms of heartburn or chest pain that feels burning, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, belching, coughing, a lump in the throat. The other causes of shortness of breath are bronchitis, pneumonia, anxiety disorders.
If it is caused by stomach acid, in addition to medication, you are also advised to modify your lifestyle and diet for example:
Avoid consumption of spicy, sour, oily, and fatty foods. Avoid consumption of chocolate, garlic, peppermint. Avoid consuming large portions of food, preferably in small portions, but more often avoid consuming caffeinated, fizzy, and alcoholic beverages. Avoid lying down after eating the most dinner consumption. slow 3 hours before bed to lose weight if you have excess weight avoid smoking habits Meanwhile, please take the drug according to doctor's advice. If you have finished treatment later but the symptoms are still disturbing, it is recommended that you consult your doctor again. The doctor will re-examine your pad before determining further treatment.
I hope this helps.
