Abdominal Pain Such As Electrocution Under The Left Chest Every 2 Minutes?
At night, I felt pain like an electric shock under my left chest every 2 minutes .. Usually I often feel it only occasionally, but it’s been more than 5 hours that it doesn’t stop .. What is that called? And caused by what? Please inform .. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain that feels like electric shock often occurs due to nerve disorders. If this pain appears in the lower left chest area, then here are some possible causes:
Excessive pressure on the chest area, for example when you sleep on your stomach or on your left side for a long time, using clothes that are too tight
Lack of neurotrophic vitamins and minerals, eg vitamins B1, B6, B12, calcium, magnesium, potassium
Pinched spinal cord, for example due to herniated intervertebral disc, tumor, or infection pressing on the nerve in the spine
Stroke, and so on
In addition to nervous disorders, it could also be that the sensation like electrocution that you experience occurs due to other causes, such as injury, rheumatoid arthritis, pleurisy, coronary heart disease, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastritis, stomach ulcers, pneumonia, psychosomatic disorders, and so on. .
Are there any other complaints besides the pain you feel, such as nausea, vomiting, coughing, shortness of breath, difficulty moving your hands, and so on? Have you had any injuries to the chest area before?
If the pain is very disturbing, is preceded by a history of injury, or appears accompanied by various other complaints as mentioned above, we recommend that you consult your doctor immediately. If it is suspected that your complaint is related to nerve disorders, the doctor may refer you to a neurologist so that your complaint will improve. However, if another underlying cause is suspected, the treatment given can be different.
In the meantime, try to relieve your pain first with the following measures:
Compress the chest with warm water
Not wearing tight clothing or sleeping on the sore side for too long
Calm yourself and your mind, don't stress for a long time
Eat a balanced nutritional value
Do not smoke
Not also consuming alcohol
Take paracetamol first to reduce pain
Hope it helps ..
