Acid Reflux causes and treatments
acid reflux, oesophagitis indigestion, heartburn, there are loads of different names for it but what we’re talking about isinflammation of the Gallic. Basically when we swallow food, it is taken and goes straight down thegullet it’s propelled down into the stomach there is a valve that between the bottom ofthe gullet and the top of the stomach and that’s supposed to be a oneway valve. Food is not supposed to go back and
neither is the strong acid inside your stomachwhich of course is used to digest your food. Butunfortunately sometimes it does happen and when foodor acid goes back into your gullet that’s when you get that horrible nastyburning sensation often it’s described as a burning behindthe breastbone sometimes you get food refluxing into your mouthand a nasty bitter taste like bile You can also get pain in the stomach, the food is often worse
after you eat, and it may well be worse if you eat close to bedtime because it’s often much much worse ifyou lie flat or if you’re cyclist if you lean downforwards on a racing bike So, what causes it? Well most commonly it’s caused by anythingthat increases the pressure inside the stomach one of the main causes unfortunately ofcourse is being overweight however being constipated and a chroniccough
can also make things much much worse. So too can wearing a tight waistband or tight clothes whichconstrict your stomach. If you want to reduce thepressure inside your stomach you may well find that eating smallermeals more often will make a big difference and so willlying down later, in other words eating much longerbefore you go to bed other things that can reduce thesymptoms, apart from losing weight and avoiding constipation, wouldinclude possibly
propping the head of the bed up on acouple of bricks, so that you’re not lying quite so flat and that means that the fluid/acid has to refluxagainst gravity and it’s less likely to get back intoyour gullet indigestion medicines will make a bigdifference because they are there to counteract the acid but if you find that they on their ownaren’t enough, then acid suppressing medicines which reduce the acidityinside the stomach
can be really useful. Get those onprescription, or you can buy them from your pharmacistwith they’re advice when do you need to worry? Well acid refluxon the whole is rarely a sign of anything worrying, however if it’s areally bad pain behind your breastbone and comes on for the first time and perhaps is more tight rather thanburning you do need to think whether or not thiscould be it’s not common, but could be the symptom of a heart attack
