Causes Of Chest Pain Down To The Neck?
Hello Ahsan! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Chest pain can indicate a serious illness. It is important for you to be examined immediately by a doctor if you experience pain in the chest. Chest pain can cause a variety of sensations depending on the cause, for example chest pain such as being stabbed, torn, crushed, or burned. Among the causes of dangerous chest pain, one of which is a heart attack. A heart attack is characterized by pain behind the breastbone with a sensation such as being crushed / hit by a heavy burden or gripping. Pain can spread to the back, jaw, or shoulder and left arm. The pain was unbearable until sometimes the patient had cold sweat or nausea and vomiting. Another characteristic of pain due to a heart attack is the pain gets heavier when on the move and decreases when resting. If you experience signs such as a heart attack, immediately come to the nearest hospital emergency room.
In addition to heart attacks, chest pain is also often caused by problems with the increase in stomach acid. Stomach acid should be inside the stomach and should not get out of the stomach. If there is a disruption in the stomach valve, stomach acid can rise into the esophagus, causing chest pain with a burning sensation. This disorder is also called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Chest pain can also be caused by problems with the bones or muscles in the chest area. Pain due to disorders of the bone or muscles has the characteristic of getting heavy when the chest is moved, for example when you raise your hand, when stretching out your hand, or when breathing. The cause of the lungs also cannot be ignored and can be dangerous. Various disorders of the lung can cause chest pain, although usually the location is not right in the breastbone area.
As I mentioned before, you should immediately see a doctor to be examined directly if you feel pain in your chest. The doctor will explain the direction of the suspicion that causes the pain you feel. If necessary, you will be asked to undergo various examinations to confirm the suspicion. The doctor will provide treatment according to your condition. Ask your doctor if there are still things that are unclear. Do not forget to control to the doctor in accordance with the promised time. If you currently smoke, stop the habit because smoking can also cause various problems in your heart, lungs, and stomach.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
