Solution To Deal With Chest Cramps And Tightness?
At night … I want to ask … if I was sleeping on my back, my chest feels tight, my chest is like cramps … I beg for a solution and if I need medication … what is the medicine … thank you please answer
Good evening Bucex Azza, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Read your complaints, and also you have stated that you seem to have been declared by a doctor to have GERD, then it is very likely that the complaint you are feeling right now is related to your GERD.
In people who have gastric acid disease or GERD, the lower esophageal muscles that limit the esophagus and stomach are weaker compared to people who do not suffer from GERD, so that stomach acid can rise to the esophagus especially when lying on your back and causing complaints such as chest discomfort, heartburn or tightness in the chest.
However, complaints like you can also be caused by other diseases such as asthma attacks, sleep apnea, angina pectoris, inflammation of the esophagus, or muscle aches. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you check this complaint directly to the doctor for further examination, and also determine whether you need treatment or not to reduce this complaint.
For the time being, do not take any medication without any clear doctor's advice. If it really feels very disturbing, you can try taking anatasida medication according to the instructions on the packaging. Avoid lying down immediately after eating, give a distance of about 2-3 hours after eating if you want to lie down. Avoid consuming foods that are acidic, spicy, containing cheese or chocolate, soft drinks, and caffeinated drinks (tea or coffee). Also avoid smoking and excessive stress.
I hope this helps.
