Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
Is this a recurrent phenomenon of chest pain with hunger or occurred only yesterday?
Do you have burping, food / acid reflux?
Stress, hurry, alcohol and acid reflux; all can be responsible for your pain, collectively. This is called as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Following is the management;
1) antacids; Maalox 2) acid blocker; Prilosec3) loosing weight, if overweight.4) avoiding alcohol, citrus fruits and juices, chocolate, and tomato based products5) avoiding large meals. Eat 5 small meals in a day.6) wait three hours after the meal before you sleep.7) elevate head end of the bed by 8 inches.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist your further, if you need any more information.
You are most welcome.
Maalox and Prilosec are over the counter medications and will help you in acid reflux. About 30 ml of alcohol is allowed per day. Cooking and eating early would be helpful in your bowel movements and it would also give you a duration of 3 hours when you sleep, from last meal. Pillow is good. Usually elevation of bed is done by putting a brick on either side at head end.
It is privilege assisting you.
A house brick under the bed; so whole bed on the head side is slightly up / elevated compared to foot end. Not under the pillow please!
Best wishes and warm regards,
