The Back Feels Heavy, Often Belching And Discomfort In The Chest?
, from last night my back felt heavy. Burp. Inhale but not tight and sore. Normal breathing. But in the chest there is something that makes it uncomfortable to the back of the back. Why? Is it just catching a cold?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Back complaints that feel heavy / uncomfortable, the discomfort in the chest, and belching can occur due to disorders of your digestive tract, such as stomach acid which has increased as in ulcers, GERD / reflux stomach acid and so on. But some other things can also cause complaints in the form of discomfort in the back such as:
Spinal deformities such as kiposis
Trauma to the spine or muscles around the bone
Incorrect posture when standing, sitting, and so on
The nerves in the spine are pinched as in HNP
Spinal diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis, TB spondylitis, and so on
To find out the exact cause of the examination must be done, both physical examination and other supporting examinations such as blood tests, photos of the back, CT Scan, MRI, and others.
Some things you can do to deal with complaints that you feel include:
Avoid too much activity
If complaints arise immediately sit or lie down to rest
Eat healthy and nutritious food on time
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol
Avoid foods that are too spicy and too sour
Avoid lying down immediately after eating
If complaints of pain are felt Paracetamol can be consumed to relieve pain, but if complaints in the back accompanied by pain in the upper abdomen / solar plexus use antacids to relieve symptoms
Maximize handlers at home, so you can delay seeing a doctor and stay at home. This is very important at this time, considering the COVID-19 pandemic. If the symptoms recur even after applying the initial treatment at home or the symptoms are heavy immediately see your doctor at the nearest health facility, don't forget to wear a mask if you have airway complaints and avoid using public transportation.
That's all, hope it's useful.
