Hello r nDok I want to ask a question recently, I often have a tight throat, feel like I’m being choked, my chest often throbs, accompanied by body aches on the left from head to toe, my nose often hurts
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A feeling of tightness like choking in the throat, accompanied by a throbbing chest may indicate GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). This condition occurs when the smooth muscle ring that limits the lower esophagus to the stomach fails to function properly, causing acid from the stomach to rise into the esophagus after the bolus of food enters the stomach. This can cause irritation symptoms in the esophagus which can be characterized by shortness of breath, like choking, phlegm, lumps, heat, stinging, pain, and so on. These complaints often get worse when you finish consuming spicy, high-fat, or fried foods. Psychological stress, hormonal changes (for example during pregnancy and before menstruation), obesity, fatigue, side effects of drugs, and various other factors can also exacerbate this complaint.
Apart from GERD, it can also be tightness in the throat and a throbbing sensation in your chest due to other reasons, for example ARI (acute respiratory infection), myalgia (muscle pain), gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), cholangitis (inflammation of the bile), heart disease. coronary, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
The left side body pain is not specific, referring to the symptoms of a particular disease. It could be, this complaint occurs due to excessive pressure on the left side of the body, rheumatoid arthritis, viral or bacterial infection, nervous disorders, deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals, myalgia (muscle pain), and so on. Meanwhile, pain in the nose can indicate skin infection around the nose (for example due to acne), nasal irritation (for example due to excessive picking), sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities), migraines, and so on.
As explained in our explanation above, there are many possible triggers for your complaint that you submit, and not all of them are related to each other. Therefore, in order to determine exactly which triggers your complaint, and what is the right way to deal with it, you need to see a doctor right away.
