Abdominal pain, sometimes wheezing, and feeling sour in the throat and mouth, are most likely signs of dyspepsia syndrome. This condition, or often called by common people with heartburn, can occur due to an unknown cause (idiopathic) or it could be because there is an underlying organic disorder. Some of the types of organic disorders in question are:
GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa) Peptic ulcers (ulcers in the stomach or duodenal wall) Cholangitis (inflammation of the bile) Cholithiasis (gallstones) Pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), and so on Complaints caused by the various conditions above are often worsens at bedtime, when the stomach is empty (for example, when it's too late to eat), or when you consume too much spicy, sour, and oily food. It could also worsen complaints when you experience stress, physical fatigue, taking certain types of drugs (for example, pain medications, antibiotics), and experiencing hormonal changes (in women, for example, just before menstruation or during pregnancy).
Apart from dyspepsia syndrome, your complaints may also arise due to other triggers, such as gastrointestinal infections, intolerance, malabsorption, food poisoning, obstructive ileus, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
If it has been more than 3 days since your complaint has lasted, or appears with a very heavy intensity that makes it difficult for you to do even light activities, you should not let it drag on. Check with yourself directly to a doctor or specialist in internal medicine in order to be given the best management. Usually, as an initial treatment, the doctor will first give you several types of drugs. However, if the complaint does not improve, the doctor may also recommend further tests, such as blood tests, ultrasound, X-rays, stool tests, and so on.
As an initial treatment, you should first reduce the things that can aggravate the complaint (as mentioned above). Eat more discipline, don't be late, and don't be too full (eat small portions but often). Make sure you only consume food and drinks that are cleanly processed, don't snack carelessly. Drink lots of warm water, compress the sore stomach with warm water. Get used to diligently brushing your teeth and gargling with an antiseptic mouthwash. Finally, be active in sports, sleep regularly, and avoid excessive psychological pressure.
Hope it helps ..
