Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Indeed, complaints that you experience can be caused by an increase in stomach acid, or in the medical realm called dyspepsia syndrome. This condition can occur due to organic disorders, such as gastritis (inflammation of the stomach mucosa), peptic ulcers, gastric cancer, cholangitis (inflammation of the bile), cholelithiasis (gallstones), pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), side effects of drugs, or also causes that are idiopathic (bile inflammation) unknown originator). Frequently, dyspeptic syndrome sufferers will feel bloated stomach, nausea, shortness of breath, burning, heat, and also experience gastrointestinal motility disorders, can be vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. Complaints are usually burdensome if you often eat late or also consume foods that trigger inflammation in the digestive tract, such as spicy foods, fatty foods, and so on. Hormonal changes (such as approaching menstruation), psychological pressure, side effects of taking certain medications (such as pain medications), and obesity can also aggravate this complaint.
Handling of dyspepsia syndrome can be done with several approaches, including one of them by administering a stomach acid neutralizing drug, such as sucralfate (which is contained in inpepsa). This drug works by coating the wound in the stomach wall so as to prevent damage to the gastric mucosa caused by increased stomach acid production. With the consumption of this drug, bile salt production can also be suppressed, regeneration of stomach cells will also be increased. Indeed, the consumption of this drug can cause nausea, bloating, and other uncomfortable sensations in the stomach. However, this complaint will usually only appear temporarily and will improve by itself after a few days of consumption of the drug.
Of course, treatment is not the only key to managing dyspepsia syndrome. To achieve optimal healing, you need to also balance it with a healthy lifestyle, namely by:
Manage stress well, don't think too much Eat disciplined and orderly, don't procrastinate When it feels bloated, eat foods that are easily digested first, such as soup foods, porridge, reduce vegetables and fruits that contain a lot of gas Reduce consumption of acidic foods, spicy, and contain excessive fat Don't consume excessive caffeinated drinks Avoid taking other drugs carelessly without doctor's advice Drink plenty of water Active move, don't sit too much Diligently exercising Keep your ideal body weight If by consuming drugs and taking care steps as mentioned above your complaints still not getting better, do not hesitate to go back to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine
I hope this helps.
