Can Chest Pain Occur Due To Excessive Anxiety?
I sometimes feel chest pain without fever, coughing, dizziness. Is this a factor of excessive anxiety or something else?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of chest pain can be caused by various things including:
Heart problems: coronary heart disease, pericarditis, myocarditis, heart attack Respiratory problems: Pleuritis, lung abscess Digestive problems: gallstones, GERD / gastric acid reflux Specific psychic problems: anxiety disorders, panic attacks Trauma: rib fractures, bruising at chest Tense muscles, etc. To find out the exact cause of course must be done a complete examination starting from a medical interview, physical examination, as well as additional checks that need to be like a blood test, heart record, chest X-ray, chest CT scan, and so on. Therefore it is important to see a doctor and do not use drugs carelessly.
Some things you can do to deal with chest pain:
Keep your diet, avoid high saturated fat Drink plenty of water, avoid alcohol Get enough rest Routine exercise Avoid smoking If pain is felt immediately sit / lie down to rest Avoid heavy activity If pain is felt can consume paracetamol to relieve pain, if chest pain is accompanied by pain in the stomach your liver can take antacids to relieve symptoms. Maximize treatment at home so you can delay seeing a doctor, so you can stay at home to help cut the spread of COVID-19. However, if an emergency occurs such as chest pain radiating to the arms, shoulders, to the neck, chest pain persists and does not subside with rest, or chest pain accompanied by vomiting and cold sweating, then immediately go to the doctor or the nearest emergency room for further treatment. Wear a mask when you have respiratory symptoms and avoid using public transportation to go to the nearest doctor or emergency room.
That's all, hope it helps.
