Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Sitting wind is a disease condition characterized by pain in the chest due to lack of blood supply to the heart muscles. This can occur due to narrowing or hardening of the arteries that are triggered by high cholesterol, a history of diabetes, high blood pressure, stress, excess body weight, smoking and lack of exercise.
In your father's case, the complaint he felt could indeed be similar to gastric acid complaints, even many chest complaints that were thought to be gastric complaints, and vice versa, many stomach complaints that were thought to be chest complaints. To distinguish them, doctors usually do a cardiac record or ECG to see whether there are abnormalities in the heart, and assess the risk factors.
If the person has had a history of recurring stomach problems, and the complaint happens to occur because he has just eaten spicy, sour, oily foods, or drinks coffee or tea, then it is likely due to the stomach. But if there have never been any complaints on the stomach, or there are abnormalities in the heart record, and the risk is indeed great for experiencing heart abnormalities in the presence of high blood pressure and such, then the main possibility is more on heart problems.
Our advice for your father now, check with a cardiologist to see first about the bad possibility that your father does have a heart disorder. The doctor will then perform an x-ray examination, ultrasound, ECG and ECG may also be a blood test to determine whether or not your father's heart is normal, and if it turns out normal, consult a doctor of internal medicine to overcome gastric problems. Complaints of feet palpable cold, pale, sleepy, and heart palpitations can also occur due to conditions of anemia or lack of red blood cells, so it is important to check your father first before deciding the best treatment for him.
Meanwhile, avoid cigarette smoke and stress, multiply the consumption of warm water, adequate rest, consumption of meat, vegetables, fruit, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
