As we all know, the stomach is one of the most important organs of the human body. Modern people have irregular diet and disordered work and rest due to various reasons, resulting in more and more people suffering from stomach diseases. Today is the international stomach day, also known as the international stomach day. Let’s learn about common stomach diseases and their symptoms, so as to find out and treat them early.
There are many symptoms of gastric ulcer. The common symptom is the feeling of burning in the stomach, which often occurs within half an hour or an hour after meals. Generally speaking, the pain can last from several minutes to several hours, showing a certain repeatability. In addition, patients with gastric ulcer may have symptoms such as dyspepsia, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, gastric distention and belching. Gastric ulcer often occurs in the middle-aged and elderly aged 40-60, more males than females.
The typical symptom of duodenum is epigastric pain during fasting, which is chronic, periodic and rhythmic. Duodenal ulcer can occur at all ages, mostly young men.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease
The typical symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease are heartburn and reflux. Heartburn refers to the burning sensation behind the sternum, and reflux refers to the feeling that the contents flow back to the pharynx or mouth. In addition, it can also be accompanied by pharyngeal foreign body sensation, epigastric pain, gastric distention and belching, swallowing suffering and other symptoms. The prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux disease increased year by year with age.
The typical symptom of gastric spasm is sudden severe upper abdominal pain, which can also be accompanied by vomiting, nausea, belching and other symptoms.
Most patients with early gastric cancer are asymptomatic, and a few patients have slight gastrointestinal discomfort, such as fullness discomfort, dyspepsia and so on. Advanced gastric cancer can have epigastric pain and weight loss. Advanced gastric cancer can have symptoms such as anemia, anorexia and weight loss. Gastric cancer most often occurs in people aged 40-70, mostly men.
Every time after dinner, we often have hiccups, and sometimes we can’t stop it. It not only hurts ourselves, but also affects others. In general, hiccups are caused by overeating. Sometimes it can also be a sign of disease, which needs our attention in life. So, what should I do if I have frequent and persistent hiccups?
Why do people burp
Burping is actually a product of human evolution and a protective response of the body. Between the chest and abdominal cavity, there is a thick muscle membrane like a hat, called diaphragm, which separates the chest and abdominal cavity. Like other organs of the body, the diaphragm also has nerve distribution and blood supply. Once the diaphragm is stimulated, the nerve will transmit the stimulation to the brain, and the brain will issue instructions to make the diaphragm contract paroxysmally and spasmodically, so burping occurs.
Most of this stimulation comes from the pressure of stomach swelling. Therefore, people often burp because they are in a hurry to eat or swallow more air when eating. Temporary hiccups may also occur after being stimulated by cold and eating dry, hard or spicy food.
Frequent hiccups are the “early warning” of gastric inflammation
Most hiccups are accidental events. If you hiccup often, it may be caused by some diseases. If belching and burping often occur, or even unconsciously burping without eating, it may indicate that the stomach is infected with Helicobacter pylori.
Helicobacter pylori infection causes gastritis. Most patients may have epigastric dull pain, stomach pain, fullness after eating, loss of appetite and belching. The symptoms are mild and severe, and may occur repeatedly or exist for a long time. For patients with Helicobacter pylori infection, it is recommended that their families also do a Helicobacter pylori test to prevent cross infection.
Persistent hiccups are called hiccups
Continuous hiccups may be a disease called hiccup. Hiccups that occur frequently or last for more than 24 hours are called refractory hiccups.
Some hiccups occur because the patient is under too much pressure. The examination often shows that the patient has no organic lesions, and the treatment is also very difficult. Most doctors can only alleviate the patient’s hiccups.
In addition, don’t be anxious and dry when burping. If it is caused by too full and urgent diet, it can be relieved automatically within a few minutes. If it is caused by chronic diseases, it will not be seriously affected after spasmolysis and strengthening gastric motility treatment. But don’t take cold drinks or do strenuous exercise when burping. If you find yourself having gastrointestinal discomfort, it is recommended to go to the hospital for examination in time, early detection and early treatment.
