Hi Dwi,


The emergence of complaints of upper abdominal pain and nausea can indeed be caused by heartburn (dyspepsia), however these symptoms can not only be caused by heartburn but can also be caused by several other conditions, namely as follows:

Gastrointestinal irritation (gastroenteritis)
Stomach acid disease
Food intolerance, this condition is caused by the body unable to digest certain food ingredients
Gastritis
Typhoid fever

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Complaints that occur only at night most likely caused by lack of activity at night so that someone feels more symptoms / complaints at night. However, some conditions such as typhoid fever do have fever symptoms, especially at night so your complaints can be caused by these conditions.


A direct examination is needed to ascertain the cause of your complaint so you should consult a doctor if the complaint persists or worsens. The doctor will ask for a history of your complaints, conduct a physical examination and supporting examinations if needed. Supporting examinations that can be recommended by a doctor is a blood test, ultrasound or urea breath test. Do the examination if it is recommended by the doctor because the examination can be very helpful in determining the diagnosis of the cause of your complaint.


If the complaint is caused by gastrointestinal infections, the doctor can prescribe appropriate antibiotics, symptomatic drugs (as symptoms) and encourage you to consume soft foods that are easily digested. If the complaint is caused by typhoid fever, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics such as tiamfenikol and sympathomatic drugs to help deal with your complaint.


The following recommendations for you:

Avoid spicy, sour, fatty foods like coconut milk, coffee, milk, soda or packaged / too hard food
Enough rest
Eat soft and easily digestible foods
Manage stress wisely
Immediately consult a doctor if complaints persist / aggravate
