Hello Nenaa, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
GERD or Gastro Oesophageal Reflux Disease or also referred to as stomach acid disease is a condition where the chest feels painful and hot and uncomfortable on the pit of the stomach due to increased acid from the stomach to the esophagus (esophagus). Symptoms of GERD that can appear as a result:
Hot chest Pain in the pit of the stomach or discomfort in the uku of the liver Acid or bitter mouth Feeling as if something is up in the esophagus when swallowing Inflammation of the larynx or vocal cords that causes sore throat and a hoarse voice Coughing without stopping dry, especially at night . Difficulty and pain when swallowing Tooth becomes bloated and belching Bad breath smells Increasing the amount of saliva suddenly throat pain is one of the symptoms that can occur due to gastric disease due to stomach acid which can rise to the esophagus so that it irritates the larynx or lower throat which causes pain.
Generally, this complaint will improve if the GERD can be overcome, the treatment that can be done can take the form of medication by a doctor. In addition to treatment as recommended by your doctor, several things also need to be considered to reduce symptoms or minimize the recurrence of GERD symptoms in the following ways:
Lose weight if overweight. Eat small portions of anmun with more frequent frequency. Avoid lying down or sleeping after eating, give at least 2 hours. Avoid chocolate, tomatoes, fatty foods, and spicy. Avoid drinking alcohol and coffee. Quit smoking. Sleep with a pillow that is rather high to prevent the increase in stomach acid while lying down Manage stress well Avoid wearing clothes that are too tight To relieve your throat you can drink water to prevent dry throat that triggers throat pain. You can also eat throat lozenges, or gargle with salt water
If this has been done but the complaint does not improve, further consult a doctor at the nearest health facility.
