good afternoon, sorry to disturb I want to ask why my heartburn always feels cramped and like something is up, I already experience tightness every day, may I ask for an opinion and a solution

1 Answer:

Hello Yulia.

Thank you for asking

In the area of ​​the gut there is the lower part of the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, parts of the liver, gallbladder, and lower heart. If you experience interference with one of them, you will feel uncomfortable.


At the bottom of the esophagus, there is a door that blocks stomach acid from moving up into the esophagus. In people with gastric acid reflux due to gastroesophageal reflux, stomach acid can rise into the esophagus. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in the gut, burning in the chest, and sometimes accompanied by shortness of breath. This rising acid state will irritate the esophagus and cause inflammation called esophagitis.


Heartburn is often associated with disorders of the stomach. Inflammation of the stomach is also called gastritis or ulcer. The cause can be drugs such as painkillers, NSAIDs and antibiotics. it can also be caused by a bacterial infection that causes chronic inflammation of the stomach which can become cancerous at a later date.


Inflammation of the pancreas due to consumption of alcoholic beverages or blockage due to gallstones. Symptoms include fever, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Untreated acute pancreatitis will develop chronic pancreatitis which will then develop into pancreatic cancer.

Gall bladder

Heartburn due to gallstones accompanied by discoloration of the stool to a putty-like color, yellowing of the skin, loss of appetite, and a lot of gas in the stomach.


Liver disease such as liver inflammation or hepatitis will give discomfort to the solar plexus area. Hepatitis is caused by the hepatitis virus, the use of drugs that poison the liver, such as anti-tuberculosis, anti-fungal, and high doses of paracetamol.


Pain in the gut can be found in heart attack sufferers. Symptoms are accompanied by chest pain, shortness of breath, and restlessness. Patients are usually more than or equal to 40 years of age.

Other conditions related to heartburn, such as:

Chronic cough
Aortic vascular aneurysm
Psychological stress

As for additional examinations that are carried out to make the diagnosis:

Abdomen X-rays

The advice I can give:

do not sleep after eating
do not consume excessive coffee and tea
do not consume oily, acidic, and spicy foods
regular exercise
avoid stressors

You should check with an Internal Medicine Specialist to find out the exact cause of the complaint you feel.

Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
