Hi Faid,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Acid reflux and inflammatory bowel disease are two different conditions.


Acid reflux disease, or in the medical world known as dyspepsia syndrome, occurs due to increased production of stomach acid and increased sensitivity of the digestive tract in response to stomach acid. This condition is often not clearly known the originator. However, this syndrome may also appear related to a disease, namely GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), stomach ulcers, stomach cancer, pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), cholangitis (inflammation of the bile), side effects of drug consumption ( eg NSAIDs), and so on. This condition can be characterized by discomfort that appears especially around the upper abdomen, can spread to the chest, throat, or back. These complaints can be in the form of nausea, pain, tightness, bloating, soreness, phlegm, and so on.


Meanwhile, inflammation of the intestines can refer to 2 conditions, namely ulcerative colitis (inflammation of the large intestine or colon) or Crohn's disease (inflammation that occurs in almost the entire digestive system). Inflammation is often associated with unhealthy eating patterns, stress, heredity, and immune disorders. Symptoms that appear can include abdominal pain, bloating, decreased appetite, nausea, weight loss, diarrhea, and so on.


Clinically, it is possible that your complaints are caused by the two conditions above. The protruding ribs are probably a secondary effect of gas buildup in your digestion that causes bloating. Or, it could also be due to other causes, such as scoliosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and so on.


If you feel that you have often received medical attention, but there has not been any significant improvement regarding your complaint, we recommend that you check your complaint again with an internal medicine specialist. That way you can determine the best treatment to deal with your complaint, including other possible causes that have not previously been detected, such as gastrointestinal infections, intra-abdominal tumors, obstructive ileus, fibromyalgia, psychosomatic disorders, and so on. If needed, doctors can perform further tests, such as ultrasound, x-rays, endoscopy, blood tests, and so on.


Now, first resolve your complaint through the following efforts:

Apply a warm compress to the flat stomach and sore ribs
Do not over massage areas of the belly and chest that are swollen and bulging
First, reduce the consumption of foods that contain lots of gas, such as cabbage, mustard greens, tubers, soda
Get diligent exercise
Stay away from stress
Maintain endurance by eating nutritious foods and getting enough rest
Do not smoke or take drugs carelessly

Hope it helps ..
