The Cause Of Frequent Spit Up After Eating?
I want to ask, why do I often spit up? after eating, sometimes I drink, even though after eating I don’t do activities that can make mutah. I am 22 years old, and he says spit up is often experienced by babies. I used to ride every time like a tornado and my stomach also relaxed, but now riding a Ferris wheel or the kora-kora was immediately nauseous. thank you
Hello NK Sintya,
The discharge of food or liquid back into the mouth without the feeling of nausea or contraction of the abdominal muscles (such as during vomiting) is called regurgitation. Regurgitation can occur if you eat too full or move right after eating.
There is like a barrier (sphincter) between the esophagus and our stomach. This sphincter keeps the food that enters the stomach to remain in the stomach to be digested and not reflux into the esophagus or mouth. When there is interference with the sphincter, reflux can occur with food mixed with stomach acid, so that complaints of burning sensation usually occur in the chest, neck and back of the mouth. If the liquid / food that comes out does not feel acidic or hot, there may be a blockage in the esophagus so that food is difficult to enter the stomach and reflux up. There is also a syndrome of rumination (rumination syndrome), where regurgitation occurs due to impaired motility (movement) of the digestive tract. Symptoms of regurgitation in rumination syndrome appear with every meal or up to 2 hours after eating. Other symptoms that can accompany are a little nausea, bad breath, burning sensation in the throat, weight loss, constipation, diarrhea, and so on.
If your complaints are very disturbing and appear more often, you should consult a doctor. Avoid drinking or eating large portions. Avoid fizzy drinks. Don't lie down immediately or do strenuous activities after eating.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
