Causes Chest Tightness Accompanied By Palpitations At The Age Of 22 Years?
Hello. I want to ask. I am just about to turn 22 years old. Maybe it’s been about 3 weeks or a month I was rather difficult to sleep fast. And when I want to sleep I also feel my heart beating fast and my breathing becomes irregular. Sometimes it feels chest pain. Also recently I also experienced respiratory problems such as shortness of breath even though I didn’t have a history of asthma or respiratory disease and my chest was getting more painful as it was being suppressed. Is this related to heart disease? What solutions or actions should I take to get me back to normal? thank you

We understand your complaints and concerns. Related to chest tightness accompanied by dizziness needs to be re-evaluated how the characteristics of tightness that you feel. Does the tightness tend to be heavy or just mild tightness, is it also accompanied by fever or chest pain, does it have a history of shortness or allergies, etc. The possibility of chest tightness that you feel can be caused by other causes, such as allergies or asthma (if you previously have a history of asthma or a family member who has a similar history), psychosomatic disorders, disorders in the lungs and heart problems such as angina. A history of collisions / trauma around the chest or disorders in the stomach such as gastritis and GERD (gastroesophageal reflux) also give similar symptoms.
Angina pain is pain due to lack of oxygen supply in the heart muscle, so that it can cause momentary pain in the left chest without being accompanied by changes in ECG rhythm. A possible cause of gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) due to reflux or backflow of stomach acid toward the esophagus is still possible. This can cause a sensation of chest pain, heat in the chest until a bad taste in the mouth. Another possibility that is still possible is a disruption in the muscles due to muscle stretching. Factors that might influence it is your daily activity history. Psychosomatic disorders due to stress can also cause similar complaints to arise. If there are complaints of fever before, the possibility of infection can be the cause.
To help reduce your complaint, the following things you can do:
Get enough rest
Increase the consumption of water
Avoid stress and fatigue
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol consumption
Take pain medications such as paracetamol or ibuprofen
Eat healthy and nutritious food
Do relaxation activities for the body
If the complaints don't get better, then don't hesitate to do a consultation and examination to your nearest doctor. Examination of heart records, blood laboratories, chest X-rays, etc. can help to identify the exact cause. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
