Stomach Pain Accompanied By A Sour Taste In The Mouth
Hello doctor, I want to ask: My father has stomach pain for 3 days, it feels sour in the mouth. Is it better to be hospitalized or not? Please answer yes. thank you
Thank you for the question.
Stomach pain accompanied by a sour taste in the mouth can be caused by several things, such as:
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Irritable bowel syndrome.
Inflammatory bowel disease.
The medical conditions above are disorders of the digestive system that are greatly influenced by diet, so diet modification is the main key to healing the condition. In most cases, the conditions above do not require hospitalization and are recommended for outpatient treatment only, unless there are indications of hospitalization such as worsening of symptoms that do not improve with the drugs given, nausea and vomiting or diarrhea more than 3-5x per day, vomiting of blood, severe anemia, or intestinal obstruction.
The following things can be done to reduce complaints:
Eat often but in small portions, and eat slowly.
Avoid lying down after eating, a minimum of waiting after 1-2 hours.
Reducing foods that contain a lot of gas such as beans, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, milk and milk products, soft drinks.
Reducing sour and spicy foods, caffeinated, and soda drinks.
Drink 2-3 liters of water per day.
Enough sleep 7-9 hours per day.
Manage stress well.
Hopefully this information can be useful and hopefully get well soon.
