The Cause Of Stomach Acid Often Recur?
Hello Doctor, my mother (age 50) has a history of stomach acid pain and routinely consumes prescription drugs from a specialist whenever a stomach acid recurs, since 11 years. And after taking the medicine, about 15-30 minutes of pain, trembling, stomach ache, and the mind was anxious began to subside … then 15 minutes I immediately felt sleepy … About 6 days later, my mother had a fever + her stomach acid recured + diarrhea. My mother also took the same prescription drugs (because all this time I have never consumed other drugs, given the trauma of shaking while taking other drugs. Thank God for diarrhea & fever; the fever is cured, but the stomach acid is still relapsing to normal especially the recurrence time is when I wake up in the morning at 5, then at 9 in the morning, then at 1 in the afternoon, then at 4 in the afternoon.
Hello Yoga Efendi, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer the questions that you give.
Gastric acid is a language that is often used by patients when seeing a doctor. But actually stomach acid disease is very many types. But basically the cause is an increase in stomach acid, causing irritation to the stomach and surrounding organs such as the throat, or intestines. Some diseases related to this are:
Gastritis. Gastric ulcer. GERD / Gastroesofageal reflux disease. Some of them have symptoms that are similar to each other. In GERD the typical symptom is that the throat feels hot because of stomach acid rising up the throat due to the weakening of the valve in the stomach.
Some of the underlying causes of the disease include:
Poor diet. Such as irregular eating time, eating too much acidic or too spicy food, etc. Age factor, the older the mucous layer of the stomach thinning and weakening. Bacterial infection. Excessive stress can trigger acid reflux. Excessive alcohol consumption. Too often consume pain relievers. For that you have to evaluate some of the things above that your mother might experience, and must immediately handle it to relieve the symptoms that your mother is experiencing. However, if symptoms continue and get worse you can bring your mother back to the doctor for a direct consultation. Currently to prevent the spread of covid-19 infections, one of the recommendations from the government is to limit hospital visits so that you can take your mother to a GP at the nearest clinic or puskesmas.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
