Hello Debby, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Symptoms of stomach ulcers or stomach acid can be caused by the condition of stomach acid which rises so that it can irritate the walls of the esophagus and mouth. Symptoms of stomach acid disease will also get worse if you are less able to manage stress in your daily life. Symptoms that often occur are a burning sensation in the chest (heartburn) and a full sensation in the stomach to breath that feels heavy and tight. Shortness of breath symptoms can be experienced by people with heart disease, it is important to distinguish shortness of breath caused by acid reflux disease with shortness of breath that occurs due to the emergence of a heart attack.
Shortness of breath due to a heart attack is usually accompanied by severe pain in the chest area such as crushed or depressed heavy objects. The feeling can spread to the back, shoulders, upper abdomen, jaw and arms. In addition, the heartbeat will run faster and irregularly. While shortness of breath that occurs due to stomach acid disease will usually be accompanied by other symptoms, namely the sensation of a full stomach, heartburn, nausea, and belching. Some people with acid reflux feel it when they are late eating and some others feel it after eating.
Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor class of drugs that has the function to reduce the production of excessive stomach acid in the stomach. Doen antacids contain aluminum magnesium polymethylsiloxane in syrup and tablet form. The main function of the content in this drug is to neutralize stomach acid that has already come out. No interactions were found between the two drugs, so both drugs can be taken together before eating. Important things that you must do to prevent pain in your stomach are as follows:
Eat a regular diet, if you feel nauseous, eat a little but often;
Reduce foods that stimulate an increase in stomach acids such as spicy and sour foods, coffee, chocolate and alcohol;
Avoid eating fatty foods that take a long time to digest;
Get enough rest and manage stress to reduce the anxiety you might feel
I hope this helps
