Hello Muhammad Aqil
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Complaints of pain in the pit of the stomach caused by increased stomach acid is a sign of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This disease is caused by stomach acid rising into the esophagus so that it can cause heartburn.
There are several complaints that often occur besides pain:
There is a sour taste in the chest or solar plexus
Difficult to swallow
Sudden excessive amount of saliva
Consumption of pain medication for gastric acid disease can cause the erosion of the lining of the stomach wall so that stomach acid rises faster and the pain becomes more frequent and severe.
Before you buy and take safe painkillers, you should consult a doctor for an examination. The doctor will examine the form of anamnesis (question and answer), physical examination, and supporting examinations so that the doctor will find out the cause and of course will be given the appropriate therapy.
Treatments you may get from your doctor:
Antacids. Drugs to neutralize excessive stomach acid.
Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs
Antibiotics caused by the bacterium Helicobacter Pylori.
H2 receptor antagonist drugs to reduce the amount of stomach acid.
There are some tips that can be done at home, namely:
Avoid alcoholic and fizzy drinks
Avoid caffeine drinks
Avoid consuming spicy and acidic foods and those that can irritate the stomach
Take antacids to help neutralize stomach acid
Avoid taking painkillers without a doctor's advice
If the pain gets worse and interferes with activities and experiences such as abdominal swelling, fever, excessive vomiting and there is blood in the stool or vomiting, fainting, you should immediately go to the nearest hospital.
