Introduction

Indigestion, also known as dyspepsia, is commonly used to describe gastrointestinal manifestations that work for a specific reason. Abdominal pain is sometimes used to describe the presence of peptic ulcers. Indigestion can be chronic and bother a person for a long time. The person who has indigestion may also experience signs and symptoms that are similar to the symptoms and manifestations of peptic ulcer, for example, discomfort in the upper abdomen and lower stomach, bloating, gas accumulation and Nausea .In the following we will talk more about indigestion.

 

Definition

When we talk about burning in gut or so-called indigestion, it is better to learn the correct and scientific definition of this term. It is a term that generally describes conditions in which the person feels very full or upset and pain in the upper abdomen and we must say that often the signs and symptoms of this person are vague. This person usually reports symptoms including belching, burning in gut, bloating, gas accumulation, and nausea. This condition is called non-acidic gastrointestinal upset or non-ulcerative gastrointestinal disorders. In many cases, the symptoms of indigestion or pain and burning in the lower stomach overlap with other gastrointestinal disorders and burning in gut are closely related, but scientifically the two diseases are distinct from each other.

People often have premature satiety or have persistent pain and discomfort in the upper abdomen or lower stomach, or people who experience pain and burning in the back of the sternum.

 

signs

The most common symptoms that people with indigestion with lower stomach burning and upper abdominal pain describe are as follows: The first sign of these people is feeling premature satiety, that is, they get caught quickly by eating small amounts of food. The second symptom of bloating is experiencing excessive accumulation of gastrointestinal gas and bloating. These people frequently burp and experience fluid or food rising from the stomach to the throat.

It feels unpleasant after feeling nauseous regularly.

Let us briefly describe the symptoms that asthma is a common problem among people around the world and a person may feel the problem in a state of mild and sometimes severe nausea. We explain the symptoms below. The first sign of these people is usually full sooner than normal. A person with indigestion feels full without eating much of their food.

It is even possible that, even though the person has not eaten much food, he/she has a lot of satiety that causes discomfort or inflammation of the abdomen. Another symptom is discomfort and pain and burning in the upper abdomen. A person with indigestion may have severe pain between the chest and navel.

For these people, blowing in the upper abdomen and the accumulation of wind in the upper abdomen will be very annoying, and most of these people will experience nausea, among other symptoms of indigestion that are less common in people include vomiting and sore throat.

The point to note is that sometimes a person with indigestion may experience burning in upper of abdomen at the same time. We must say that burning in gut or gastroesophageal reflux with indigestion are two completely separate disorders, although it is possible that they overlap. There may be symptoms at the same time, but you should note that these two problems should be considered and treated separately.

 

reasons

What causes indigestion? It is said that in principle, a person who has unhealthy eating habits can cause more than others with gastrointestinal disorders and diseases, in other words, gastrointestinal disorders and diseases are related to unhealthy eating habits. Among the causes of indigestion, we mention the following: The first cause is overeating. The second cause is eating fast. The third reason is to lie down quickly and immediately after eating. The fourth reason is the consumption of spicy and fatty foods.

Among the other problems that cause a person to experience indigestion and indigestion, we mention the following: People who smoke and drink too much alcohol are more likely than others to experience annoying symptoms of indigestion. Also, taking some medications, especially nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, can be associated with irritating symptoms of burning in gut.

Another point is that indigestion can be a sign that a gastrointestinal disorder has occurred in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract, including gastrointestinal diseases that can be associated with indigestion. Among the gastrointestinal diseases that can be associated with indigestion are the following: The first disease of gastroesophageal reflux disorder, Second disease of tumors and gastric cancer, The third disease is cancer of the pancreas, The fourth disease biliary problems, The Fifth disease Peptic ulcers.

Keep in mind that it will not be possible to determine exactly what causes indigestion in most cases. In the term of physicians, a condition in which a person experiences symptoms of indigestion and burning in gut but for which no reason can be found, refers to the term functional digestive tract.

 

What is meant by functional indigestion?

Functional indigestion occurs following abnormal movements of the stomach wall muscles. Movement of the muscles of the stomach wall, if they are normal, cause the food in the stomach to be somewhat digested and transferred from the stomach to the small intestine. If these movements are out of their normal state, there will be problems in the process of digestion in the stomach. Food transfer from the stomach to the small intestine is disrupted and functional indigestion occurs.

 

When is it time to see a doctor for upper abdominal burning or indigestion?

Indigestion is said to be a very common problem in the community.Most people who suffer from indigestion, do not need to use medical services to solve their problem, but we must say that it is important that if this problem becomes a recurrent disorder for you or you have several of the following conditions, it is necessary to consult and see a doctor.

1. Age 55 years and older

2. A person who has a problem with progressive food has progressive medical dysphasia

3. A patient who has lost a significant amount of weight for which no specific reason has been found

4. Persistent nausea and vomiting

5. A person with iron deficiency anemia

6. A person who has had a mass in his stomach during examinations

7. Bloody vomit or blood in the stool of a person with symptoms of indigestion

 

Since the above can be a warning sign of an underlying gastrointestinal disease such as peptic ulcers or gastrointestinal cancers, it is important to carefully examine a person who has one or more of the symptoms. One of the procedures used by doctors in these cases is endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract.

What is meant by endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract?  it is said to be seen and examined inside the body using an instrument called an endoscope. The endoscope is a thin, flexible tube with a light source and a camera at the end. In endoscopy, the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract is guided through the throat into the stomach and esophagus and then into the stomach and the beginning of the small intestine. And the doctor on the monitor in front of him can see these areas, namely the esophagus, the beginning of the small intestine and the mucosa of their wall. If there is a suspicion of abnormal tissue, take a sample, and for example, if there is bleeding, he can use the same way to close the bleeding vessel and stop the bleeding. You should know that a person with severe indigestion can experience long-term problems in different parts of the gastrointestinal tract.

The doctor can enter the patient's esophagus and stomach by inserting a thin flexible roll that is inside the body, equipped with a camera and light, and the sampling tool has been published. Examine the wall of the gastrointestinal tract and use sampling tools to sample abnormal tissues. Mucosal tissue samples are sent to a laboratory during upper gastrointestinal endoscopy for testing to confirm or rule out a bacterial infection. It is important to note that endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract is widely used today to diagnose gastroesophageal reflux disease, peptic ulcer, inflammation, infection, and malignancy.

The drugs mentioned above are among the drugs that inhibit the proton pump in the gastric mucosa who can reduce the level of gastric acid. Usually in cases where indigestion is accompanied by burning in gut, these drugs are the first choice. The Indigestion tract is prescribed as follows: The first group of gastric acid drugs that can balance the level of gastric acid to some extent and is called h2 blocker. Among the drugs in this category are ranitidine and famotidine. This method uses less cimetidine due to less possible side effects. Other drugs include prokinetics.
