Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The throat feels hot and spicy it may be caused by stomach acid disease that you suffered before. Gastric acid disease (also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease / GERD) is caused due to a weakness in the valve between the stomach and esophagus which causes food and stomach acid to rise back into the upper gastrointestinal tract. Basically, to overcome this condition requires treatment in a long time, especially if the weakness of this valve is quite heavy. Treatment sometimes needs to be done up to 8-12 weeks (maybe even more), and in patients whose symptoms do not improve also by administering medication, surgery can also be proposed to be performed. It is better if your symptoms are still persistent, you return control to the internist or gastroenterologist for further evaluation and management.
Aside from administering drugs, changes in diet and lifestyle are still the main therapies for GERD. The following are some things that you should do constantly:
eat a little but more often do not eat too much or eat until it is too full avoid foods that are too fatty, too spicy, and too acidic reduce consumption of foods that produce gas avoid also consumption of alcohol, coffee, chocolate, soft drinks lose weight if there are excessive weight, avoid smoking, avoid lying down after eating, sleep in a more upright position (raise your pillow shim)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
