What is meant by Burning Sensation In Stomach?

Stomach problems are pretty common and sometimes you might experience a burning sensation in your stomach. This burning sensation if left untreated might lead to chronic gastrointestinal diseases. The stomach problems are mainly caused by your unhealthy eating habits. This burning sensation can cause abdominal pain, indigestion and fatigue. Some infections might also cause you to have a burning sensation in your stomach. The main cause for the burning sensation is due to the unstable acid reflux that goes on in your stomach. Gastrointestinal problems are mostly associated with these symptoms. Sometimes food allergies or food intolerances can cause you to have these problems as well. Smoking can be also a viable reason for the burning sensation that you might face in your stomach. The presence of ulcers can also cause the burning sensation. Ulcers are produced in the stomach when there are abnormalities associated with the acids in your stomach. These problems might also lead you to be lactose intolerant as your body fails to produce enzymes for proper digestion. If you follow a rich and unhealthy diet then you might face these problems along with indigestion problems. This is why you should keep a helthy and balanced diet to avoid these complications.

How is the treatment done?

The course of treatment starts off with a series of tests to detect the severity and the cause of the problems. Antacids are commonly prescribed by the medical experts so that the unstable enzymes in your stomach are put to control. Due to the indigestions, some antibiotics might be prescribed too. The effective way to get rid of the problems is to change the lifestyle of your diet. Many unhealthy and junk/fast foods can cause you to develop stomach problems. The doctors advise you to have an oil free diet and avoid fast foods as much as possible. The doctors also prescribe you to consume boiled foods so that they can be broken down easily temporarily. A fixed diet is prescribed by your medical expert along with medicines that will improve the enzyme productivity of your stomach. If you smoke, then do quit. Certain solutions (ayurvedic) solutions can help to eliminate the problems that you face. These certain syrups and drinks help to cool down your stomach. If you have ulcers in your stomach then you should seek medical help as you might require certain surgeries to remove the ulcer from your stomach. The stomach problems cannot be eliminated completely and the safety mainly depends on the care the individuals take upon themselves.

Who is eligible for the treatment?

If you face that your stomach is burning which causes you to have digestion problems along with loss of appetite, vomiting, black stools, uneasy hiccups then you are eligible for the treatment of this condition.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

There are no specific conditions where you are not eligible for the treatment, however, you should consult with your medical expert to be on the safe side.

Are there any side effects?

Common side effects with the consumption of antibiotics are diarrhea, nausea and fatigue. Some might face loss of appetite too.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

The post treatment guidelines are pretty simple. You should try not to chew too fast or talk while chewing, drink beverages after one to two hours of any meal. You should also try to relax after you meals. Most importantly you should change yourself into maintaining a healthy diet and avoid spicy and oily food. Take antacids in an empty stomach if you feel uneasy at times.

How long does it take to recover?

The recovery time depends on how well you are responding to your medicines and how well you maintain a healthy diet. You should be able to notice significant changes within a month.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

The price of the treatment depends on the severity of your condition. The medicines and antacids range within Rs. 300 to Rs. 1,500. The tests for the diagnosis of this condition range from Rs. 200 to Rs. 2,500.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

The results of the treatment are only permanent if you keep up a healthy diet and regular checkups and follow up of the medicines. Once you go back to having excess of spicy and oily foods then the symptoms will be back again.
