The Cause Of Shortness Of Breath Accompanied By Heartburn?
Hello sorry to bother, my stomach hurts, shortness of breath, pain in the solar plexus, it has been X-rayed but the results are within normal limits, but it just hurts the same as feeling the pit of the stomach, why is that?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Pain in the pit of the stomach accompanied by tightness in the chest can be caused by a condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease (also known as GERD or acid reflux disease). In this disease, symptoms that can appear include:
burning sensation in the chest (which aggravates after eating or when lying down) chest pain tightness in the chest difficulty swallowing food sensation of a foreign body in the throat acid taste or bitter in the mouth especially when belching, sometimes food and stomach acid can come out when belching cough chronic If X-rays done are chest X-rays and the results are normal, the possibility of shortness of breath you are not caused by abnormalities in your lungs. Other possible causes of shortness that you feel are certain abnormalities in the heart (for example heart attacks, heart failure, heart valve disorders), or other disorders of the digestive tract (such as flatulence, overeating, peptic ulcer, gastritis, digestive disorders due to deficiency certain digestive enzymes, disorders of the bile duct, etc.).
If you have risk factors for heart disease, you should check yourself in the hospital as soon as possible so that you can do an EKG or heart rhythm record and examine heart enzymes. If not, then you can plan to consult a doctor of internal medicine so that further evaluation can be done to find the cause.
Here are some things you can do right now:
Try to eat a little but more often do not eat too much and too full, and keep your meals out of bed do not lie down after you eat, avoid consuming foods that are too oily, too spicy, and too acidic, avoid consuming foods that produce gas , for example broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, soft drinks, avoid alcohol consumption and coffee, avoid smoking, try to sleep with more pillow shades (so the sleeping position is more upright)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
