Tips On How To Manage Constant And Frequent Heartburn.
Heartburn is quite common and occurs after a big meal, and occasional episodes are not reason for undue worry. However, frequent and constant heartburn is a grave problem that requires to be medically treated as it is a common symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD, which is a disease causing stomach acid or even causes bile to flow back (reflux) into the food pipe or esophagus.
Constant Heartburn requires strong measures and even surgery to treat it.
If there is repeated backwash of acid, it will cause the esophagus to be irritated that will not only result in irritation, but will also lead to inflammation of the esophagus as well. Generally, lifestyle changes can help to address the problem of heartburn or over-the-counter medications can provide relief.
Constant heartburn will require much stronger medications as the constant burning sensation in the chest, as well as sometimes the throat, coupled with a sour taste in the mouth, requires strong measures to counteract such a condition.
People that are obese, have hiatal hernia, pregnant women, asthmatics, diabetics, those with peptic ulcer, or those who have delayed stomach emptying or who suffer from Zollinger-Ellison syndrome or have connective tissue disorders will be most likely to have constant heartburn, which can lead to further complications arising that would, in turn, require ever more intensive medical treatment as well as prescription medications.
Constant heartburn can occur several times in a week, may return soon after the antacid wears off, as well as causes patients to wake up at night. In case the symptoms persist in spite of taking prescription drugs, or there is difficulty in swallowing, or there is regurgitated blood, or stool turns black or one experiences weight loss, one can be sure that these are symptomatic of constant heartburn.
Usually, the doctor may be able to prescribe medications, as well as diagnose the constant heartburn condition with the help of just the description of the symptoms. However, sometimes these may be insufficient and the condition may be severe enough or unresponsive to treatment, and thus will require undergoing other tests including Barium X-ray, endoscopy, ambulatory acid (pH) probe tests, and esophageal impedance measurements.
Constant heartburn will usually cause irritation, as well as inflammation, of the esophagus, but can also lead to one or more other conditions, including narrowing of the esophagus, ulcers in the esophagus, and Barrett’s esophagus. Treatment for a constant heartburn condition can vary and may only require over-the-counter medications or surgical procedures depending on how severe are the condition and how well the symptoms respond to various treatments.
Common over-the-counter remedies include antacids, H-2 receptor blockers, and proton pump inhibitors. Prescription strength medications include prescription-strength H-2 receptor blockers, prescription-strength proton pump inhibitors, and prokinetic agents, and, finally, one may require undergoing surgery or other procedures to get rid of constant heartburn.
