What Causes Acidity? Understanding its Symptoms and Causes

What Causes Acidity?  Understanding its Symptoms and Causes

Acidity - gastritis: understanding the symptoms and causes

Gastritis/acidity is a group of diseases or symptoms where there is excess secretion of acid by the gastric glands of the stomach.

If you have upper abdominal discomfort or pain, stomach fullness, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, indigestion, belching, waterbrash or irregular bowel movement, then you must be suffering from acidity or gastritis. It is a problem which becomes worse when an individual has poor eating habits and improper lifestyle.

Gastritis: swelling of stomach lining

Various factors like spicy food, medicines, tobacco, alcohol etc. Can cause increase in gastric acid production and disturb, weaken or damage the normal stomach lining. Gastritis occurs when there is an imbalance between the acid production and damage to the stomach lining, resulting in swelling of the stomach lining.

Gastritis a very common disorder of all age groups

Gastritis is of two types - acute gastritis (which occur suddenly) and chronic gastritis (develops over a period of time). In India gastritis is a very common disorder which occurs at any age but is more widespread in the adolescent age group (12-17 years). Adolescence is a change from childhood to adulthood, the period in which a lot of physical and psychological changes occur increasing the risk of gastritis.

Multiple factors cause gastritis

Various factors like spicy food, medicines (pain killers), tobacco, alcohol, emotional disturbance, psychological stress, smoking, alcohol intake and bacterial infection lead to gastritis.

Besides these, the three most important factors include helicobacter pylori infection (bacterial infection), use of painkiller medicines and autoimmunity (body loses its own immunity and attacks itself). These factors in the long term may even cause an ulcer (permanent breakage of the stomach lining), acid reflux disorder (food coming back to mouth after swallowing) and stomach cancer.

What does Ayurveda suggest?

In Ayurveda, agni refers to fire like activity in alimentary canal responsible for digestion of food which is influenced by the status of doshas. When samana-vata associates with kapha in turn produces weak digestive power (agni-mandya). Consuming food against the code of dietetics i. E. Ahara-vidhi vidhana and ahara-vidhi-visheshayatana (method of taking food) lead to a number of diseases related with food. Eating food before the previous food is digested, untimely food, eating too much of spicy or oily food, eating when not hungry, drinking too much water during food and at a time unless required, very hot high fatty-fried food, stale food, heavy diet, excess consumption of horse gram, vitiate all the three body humours (tridosha) also contribute to the symptoms of gastritis.

Due to the sourness of consumed food the liquidity of pitta increases further decreasing the capacity for digestion (agnimandya). Hence, rasadi-dhatu is not formed in a proper manner. This, after a certain period, manifests as amlapitta (hyperacidity).

Symptoms of gastritis vary among individuals

Symptoms of gastritis vary among individuals, and in many people even there are no symptoms. It also depends on the duration of disease, whether it is of acute (coming on suddenly) or chronic (causing symptoms over a long period of time) type.

The most common symptoms of acute gastritis include:

  • Abdominal bloating or stomach fullness,
  • Belching (expelling air from the stomach through the mouth)
  • Waterbrashes (sour fluid or tasteless saliva into the mouth)
  • Upper abdominal pain or discomfort
  • Nausea/vomiting feeling
  • Irregular bowel movement
  • Recurrent indigestion,
  • Chest burn or gnawing feeling between meals (heartburn)
  • Hiccups etc.

In addition to this, symptoms of chronic gastritis may include weight loss, continuous flatulence, black stool, loss of appetite and even anemia.

How to diagnose gastritis?

To diagnose gastritis, performs a thorough physical evaluation, and may recommend a blood test for h. Pylori screening, stool test for blood in the stool. Abdominal x-rays or barium studies (upper or lower) may demonstrate the presence of thickened stomach lining and folds that are signs of inflammation in the stomach.

Sometimes, an endoscope, a thin tube containing a tiny camera, is inserted through the mouth and down into the stomach to look at the stomach lining (endoscopy). The doctor will check for inflammation and may perform a biopsy, in which a tiny sample of tissue is removed and sent for analysis of gastric lining.

What is the treatment of acute pancreatitis? How fair its prognosis? How much time the treatment takes to cure?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Patients with severe acute pancreatitis require intensive care. Within hours to days, a number of complications (eg, shock, pulmonary failure, renal failure, gastrointestinal [gi] bleeding, or multiorgan system failure) may develop. The goals of medical management are to provide aggressive supportive care, to decrease inflammation, to limit infection or superinfection, and to identify and treat complications as appropriate. Autoimmune pancreatitis is a rare condition. Corticosteroids should not be used to treat this condition in the short term in patients who are suspected of having autoimmune pancreatitis and who present with acute pancreatitis.

Hi, after going through your complaints it is easily recognisable that you are suffering from hyper acidity disorder along with severe constipation. First of all let me tell you this both things are going hand in hand and you must first of all get counselled for your diet, your daily water intake, once get your tummyto the normal level and once you start passing stools regularly, your hyper acidity disorder will also get subsided gradually. Rather than taking some medications to subside your acidity try to find out the root cause of your hyper acidity which may be your own daily routine pattern, disturb sleep pattern, excessive stress, occupational hazards, addiction, n improper diet, fast food consumption etc kindly get consulted doctor regarding your diet as early as possible.

I find a projection from the anus. It is painless and I could feel it's presence only on cleaning. I fear the possibility of a cancer. When I said this to my mom she told she had this once. I think she says this on seeing my fear. Some times blood will come along with stool mostly this might be the reason for difficulty in passing stool.

Anal tags are quite commonly seen in patients suffering from plies or anal fissures etc. But it would be prudent to have it examined by a surgeon. Once we are sure it just a tag only then treatment is very simple. Meanwhile avoid constipation and take plenty of fluids and fruits.
