Does your chest make you feel uncomfortable when you sleep at night? Do you wake up frequently? Approximately 1.5% of all Taiwanese have gastroesophageal reflux. Aside from the relaxing of the lower esophageal sphincter and its related hyperacidity, which will cause acid reflux. What are some of the other causes of heartburn?
The research on this subject has not only been conducted overseas. The Chang Gung Memorial Hospital has recently also published a five-year study on the growing trend of “sleep apnea, obesity, gastroesophageal reflux, and asthma comorbidity.” It was found that sleep apnea, gastroesophageal reflux and asthma were closely related. In 2004, WebMD Health News and Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol had similar studies. When obstructive sleep apnea occurs, the airway is obstructed but there are still breathing movements in the chest and abdomen, which produce a suction effect that increases the pressure in the stomach and causes gastric acid reflux.
In addition to easily leading to well-known conditions such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, gout, etc., sleep apnea can also cause gastroesophageal reflux! Therefore, it is important to stop neglecting respiratory apnea! If you suspect you have this problem, go quickly to a nearby sleep center and receive a thorough sleep examination, and soon you will have a good night’s sleep.
