Bruised Chest After Falling On His Stomach?
Hello Roni28, thanks for asking.
When someone has a blunt trauma (such as falling and hitting), you should always suspect the possibility of:
Whether the accompanying symptoms occur, such as pain, spasms, weakness / paralysis of the limbs, is the result of the trauma process. Is the opposite, which arises symptoms of pain, tightness, weakness, first, so that it acts as a cause, then causes someone to fall. This needs to be considered, given your father's age (possibly elderly or middle aged) and history of the disease. Chest pain may result from bruising of the muscles, it may also be due to an injury to the bone, or due to interference from the heart. Please be aware, that in people with diabetes mellitus, often the signs and symptoms of a heart attack are not typical and unclear.
It's best to consult your father with a doctor. The doctor may need to do an examination of heart enzyme levels, do an EKG, take a chest X-ray (to look for possible bone injuries), or if necessary, perform echocardiography. Watch your father, observe whether symptoms worsen. Position your father in the most comfortable position when lying down. If there is worsening of symptoms accompanied by decreased awareness, immediately take it to the emergency room.
Thus my brief explanation, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
