What is heartburn?

.

Gust is definedand as a burning sensation or discomfort behind the sternum that may radiate into the neck. It usually occurs after eating a meal or, independent of eating, when lying down. The condition is associated with gastro-oesophageal reflux, the backflow ofand gastric juices into the oesophagus.

Symptoms of heartburn

.

How to recogniseand heartburn? Patients most commonly complain ofand:

    .
  • a burning sensation in the chest that may radiate into the throat,
  • .
  • a sour, astringent or bitter taste in the mouth,
  • .
  • difficulty swallowing,
  • .
  • increasing pain after lying down or bending over,
  • .
  • coughing or hoarseness,
  • .

How can you tell the difference between heartburn and heart attack?

You have certainly heard that the symptoms of a heart attack can be similar to heartburn. How do you tell the difference between the two symptoms? I asked Dr Witold Tomaszewski, M.D., about this.

.

Ghag is usually an isolated symptom. It is sometimes accompanied by bloating and an unpleasant feeling of fullness. In myocardial infarction there are usually other symptoms as well, such as:

  • sweating, 
  • .
  • increased temperature, 
  • .
  • weakness often leading to fainting, 
  • .
  • radiation of pain to the jaw, arm, 
  • .
  • tachycardia or bradycardia, 
  • .
  • rhythm disturbances felt as heartbeats/ palpitations, 
  • .
  • dizziness, 
  • .
  • pallor or redness of facial skin, 
  • vomiting, 
  • .
  • spiration,
  • .

Are heartburn and reflux the same thing?

.

No, heartburn and reflux are not the same thing. Reflux (actually gastroesophageal reflux disease - GERD) is a conditionand involving the abnormal backflow of acidic gastric contents into the oesophagus due to a failure of the lower oesophageal sphincter. Heartburn is one of the symptomsand of this condition.

.
Today, the problem of overuse of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) can be observed. These drugs are recommended as a cover for the use of many other drugs (e.g. antibiotics) completely without meaning to. If the drugs used chronically do not have the potential to damage the gastric and duodenal mucosa, the prophylactic use of PPIs is unwarranted.
.
Ilona Krzak.

Ilona Krzak Master of Pharmacy

.
.

Patients themselves often ask at the pharmacy for a 'drug shield' during antibiotic therapy, confusing probiotics with proton pump inhibitors, adds the MSc pharmacist. Modern heartburn medications are effective, but need to be used with caution.

.

Stress affects the digestive system and can exacerbate unpleasant discomfort.

What for heartburn in pregnancy?

.

I asked Dr Arthur Drobniak, M.D., about the safety of heartburn tablets in pregnancy. What should pregnant women pay attention to?"

.
.

The feeling of heartburn is a common problem reported by pregnant patients, which is related to anatomical changes - the growing uterus in the abdominal cavity - and hormonal changes such as the production of oestrogens and gestagens during pregnancy. 

.
.
.

The mainstay of safe management is the use of antacid formulations containing calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate with meals. Many preparations are available without a prescription. 

.
.
.
In many cases, however, this management is insufficient and sometimes the woman requires the help of pharmacotherapy or a physiotherapist. In such cases, it is the attending physician who decides on the form of therapy to be used, tailoring its safety profile to the individual needs of each patient.

Home remedies for heartburn

.

Taking heartburn medication is just masking the problems. Take care of your diet to avoid burning in your oesophagus. I've got a handful of seven tips for you from Marta Kaczorek, a clinical nutritionist.

Care for your diet

.

Unprescribed gastric acid-reducing drugs are one thing. How about a diet for heartburn? Well, you probably can't eat anything but rusks! You may think that a heartburn diet is unattractive and unpalatable, but contrary to what you may think, there are plenty of foods to choose from which you can make interesting, filling meals.

Products recommended for heartburn include: 

  • lean hot soups (cooler is not a good choice),
  • .
  • lean meat,
  • lean dairy products
  • lean dairy products,
    • lean soups,
    • lean meat,
    • lean meat.
    • fish,
    • .
    • eggs,
    • .
    • ripe and peeled fruits,
    • fruits.
    • desserts such as kisses, puddings, mousses,
    • .
    • flaxseed jelly,
    • .
    • delicate spices,
    • .
    • herbal teas (other than mint),
    • .
    • cereal coffee,
    • .
.

Products not recommended for heartburn are:

.
  • fatty, fried and smoked foods,
  • .
  • highly processed foods such as crisps,
  • .
  • chocolate,
  • .
  • coffee,
  • .
  • spicy spices,
  • .
  • citrus fruits,
  • .
  • citrus fruit juices,
  • .
  • heavy-digestible vegetables, e.g. onions, garlic, tomato,
  • .
.

Keep a food diary

.

With heartburn, it is difficult for some patients to give up their favourite foods. I therefore recommend keeping a food diary: for a few days, write down what you eat, at what time, and how you feel after a meal.

It is possible to find out what you eat, what time you eat and how you feel after a meal.

It may turn out that a particular product does not give you heartburn and you do not have to give it up. It can also work the other way round: a particular product can unexpectedly turn out to be a trigger for unpleasant burning in the oesophagus.

Reduce the weight of your food and keep it down.

Lose weight 

.

When overweight and obese, it is a good idea to get rid of excess weight. Abdominal obesity increases intra-abdominal pressure, interferes with the function of the oesophagus and can cause a number of unpleasant discomforts, such as heartburn and reflux.

Take care of your sleep

.

Sleeping with your head higher than your chest (about 15-20 cm) can help you relieve heartburn symptomsand. Elevate your head with an extra pillow. It is also recommended to sleep on your left side . Make sure you follow sleep hygiene rules.

Quit addictions

.

Alcohol and cigarettes are the best 'friends' of heartburn. They reduce the tension of the lower oesophageal sphincter (which worsens its function). Cigarettes impair the secretion of saliva, which is important for digestionand.

Care for meal hygiene

.

Simple tips you can implement today - at your next meal.

    .
  • Eat regularly. This will keep the hormones associated with feelings of hunger and satiety at optimal levels, avoid hunger attacks and keep you energised for action.
  • Eat your meal slowly. Eat mindfully - savour every bite, focus on the taste, smell of the food.
  • Don't overeat. An overloaded digestive system doesn't work properly and can exacerbate unpleasant symptoms such as heartburn or stomach pain.
  • Avoid exertion after eating. Once you have eaten a meal, refrain from lifting, bending or heavy exercise for two hours.
  • Do not lie down after a meal. A nap or blissful laziness after a tasty meal seems tempting. For health and a better metabolism - it's better to go for a walk.
  • .

Change your wardrobe!

.

If your wardrobe is full of tight trousers or belts that are too small - you have two choices: shed the excess weight, or go shopping and buy yourself comfortable, non-pressing clothes.

.
Tight clothing (especially trousers, belts) can causeand an increase in intra-abdominal pressure - which promotes the occurrence of heartburn.

Gaga - a burning problem. When to see a doctor

.

You use heartburn preparations and take care of your meal hygiene and yet, you continue to experience a bothersome burning sensation in your oesophagus. When should you see your doctor?

It's a good idea to take your heartburn medication.

Ghag usually passes quite quickly after taking appropriate medication to reduce gastric juice secretion. Elimination of its causative factors and implementation of an easily digestible diet, reduction of alcohol, stress is usually sufficient. 

.
If the problem is persistent, it is worth seeing your Primary Care Physician and having a gastroscopy with assessment of the oesophageal entry into the stomach. 
.
Dr Witold Tomaszewski.

Witold Tomaszewskidoctor of medical sciences

.
.

Gaga can even last for years and can effectively make a patient's life miserable and limited. We should not procrastinate and be afraid to see a specialist," adds the doctor.

FAQ

.
. What heartburn tablets are recommended?

The heartburn tablets recommended by pharmacists are: Anesteloc Max, Manti Extra, Ranigast, Gaviscon and Rennie. When looking for heartburn tablets, choose those that contain omeprazole, pantoprazole, famotidine or calcium carbonate. These are effective alkaline drugs - they neutralise stomach acids.

. What for heartburn fast?.

For heartburn quickly (but for a short time), consuming alkaline foods can help, so they neutralise stomach acids. Drinking a glass of milk or water with a teaspoon of soda, eating a handful of almonds, or a banana will help quickly for heartburn.

. Does drinking water help heartburn?.

Yes, drinking water helps with heartburn. When you feel a burning sensation in your oesophagus, it is a good idea to drink a glass of water. Drinking water before and after meals is especially recommended. Remember that an adult should consume about 2.5 litres of water a day.

. How to get rid of heartburn once and for all.

To get rid of heartburn once and for all, avoid hard to digest foods, processed foods, excessive salt in the diet and choose easily digestible, nutritious foods, rich in vitamins and minerals. Regular physical activity, limiting stimulants and reducing stress are helpful.

. What water to drink when suffering from heartburn.

To maintain the correct acid-base balance in the body, it is recommended to drink alkaline water with a pH of 8.5-9.5. Such water promotes acid neutralisation and fights excess free radicals, oxygenates the body and provides it with many valuable minerals.

. How can you tell if it's heartburn?.

Gust is easy to recognise because it has characteristic symptoms: a burning and burning sensation in the oesophagus, behind the sternum, sometimes reaching as far as the throat. Heartburn can also be manifested by acid reflux or by stomach contents being thrown up into the oesophagus and a sour, astringent or bitter taste in the mouth.

. What not to eat for heartburn.

In the diet for heartburn the following should be avoided: fatty, fried and smoked foods; fast food; hard to digest vegetables such as onions, garlic, leek, cabbage, tomato and its preserves, citrus fruits: lemons, oranges, grapefruit; mushrooms; pickled vegetables.

What not to eat for heartburn?
. Does lemon juice help heartburn?.

No, lemon juice does not help heartburn, and consuming lemon juice or water can exacerbate heartburn symptoms due to its acidity, which further increases the acidity of digestive juices. The vitamin C contained in citrus increases the production of gastric juices, which can exacerbate burning in the oesophagus.
