Stomach Problems are the diseases of the Stomach. Any problem that interrupts the normal functioning of the Stomach is called a Stomach Problem.
Stomach is a muscular and pear shaped organ. It is present between the Esophagus and the Small Intestines. It plays an important role in digestion. It secretes certain acids and enzymes that help in digestion of the food. It has two sphincters, Esophageal Sphincter and Pyloric Sphincter. The opening where esophagus is attached to the Stomach is Esophageal Sphincter. It prevents the back flow of food into the Esophagus. The opening where stomach ends and the small intestines begin is known as Pyloric Sphincter. It prevents the back flow of partially digested food into the Stomach.
When we eat food it directly goes to the stomach through Esophagus. The stomach starts digestion of the food with the help of enzymes and acids. The muscles of the stomach contract in a rhythmic way and the process is known as peristalsis. Then the partially digested food goes to the duodenum ( small intestines ) where rest of the digestion takes place.
Any illness that impairs the normal functioning of the stomach is considered Stomach Problem. It may cause Acid Reflux, Gastritis and many other problems. Causes of Stomach Problems
