We understand the concerns that you feel.
Complaints felt by your father indeed direct interference with the stomach.
Various disorders of the stomach that can have almost similar symptoms, including:
Gastric ulcer / gastric ulcer
Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)
Associated with complaints experienced by your father, one of several types of stomach disease above can be the cause. Gastritis is an inflammatory condition in the stomach wall that is generally caused by infection. While stomach ulcers will cause symptoms of pain in the left upper abdomen or solar plexus immediately after consuming or when consuming food and accompanied by complaints of bowel movements that are blackish brown due to blood coming out of the wound in the stomach. Whereas duodenal ulcer can cause pain after eating. Gastric acid is called GERD, which is an increase in stomach acid due to muscle weakness in the esophagus / esophagus. So that stomach acid rises to the esophagus and irritates the area. Upper left abdominal pain or heart, chest pain, burning sensations such as chest / stomach, bitter mouth and shortness of breath are the most common complaints.
Other conditions such as inflammation of the pancreas can also trigger pain in the solar plexus and in the left abdomen.
Therefore, we recommend that your father conducts an examination directly to the nearest doctor or specialist in internal medicine for a thorough examination and evaluation related to the complaint being felt. The doctor will conduct a medical interview, physical examination and other supporting examinations if needed such as a blood laboratory, endoscopy and ultrasound to find out the type of digestive disorders that your father is experiencing.
Risk factors such as irregular daily eating patterns, types of food consumed such as spicy foods, coconut milk, coffee, alcohol and a history of taking pain medication or herbs can cause inflammation of the stomach wall. Smoking and stress are also related to the occurrence of disorders of the stomach.
To help relieve symptoms at home, adjust food patterns and types of food consumed. Avoid foods that can stimulate excessive stomach acid production, consume foods high in fiber, meet your daily body's fluid needs and exercise regularly. Also avoid smoking, stress and fatigue.
