Hello Bahtra Irawan,
Smoking causes a variety of adverse effects on health and can increase a person's risk of having a heart attack, lung cancer, throat cancer, mouth cancer, esophageal cancer to the bladder.
Chest pain in former smokers is not necessarily caused by heart disease. In people with a long history of smoking, chest pain can result from the following diseases:
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which can be in the form of emphysema or chronic bronchitis. Other symptoms: shortness of breath, wheezing breath, increasingly tightness especially during activity, chronic cough Gastric acid disease (gastroesophageal reflux disease) Other symptoms: burning sensation in the chest, belching, taste bitter in the mouth especially in the morning or after lying down pneumonia Other symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath Pleuritis Other symptoms: sharp pain when breathing in, fever Coronary heart disease Other symptoms: chest pain due to blood supply to the heart muscle which is reduced in coronary heart disease will cause chest pain called angina pectoris with a characteristic sign, pain in the left chest, such as being pressed by a heavy object or as bound; pain often radiates to the left arm, neck or jaw; pain can occur after activity or if severe at rest; patients can experience shortness of breath, nausea, cold sweat, to a decrease in awareness Musculoskeletal disorders: injury to muscles, fractures in bones Determine your definite diagnosis of what, certainly not enough just with complaints of chest pain and shortness of breath that you convey in this discussion. The doctor needs to inquire in full about the history of your complaint, other accompanying symptoms, risk factors, illnesses that you have suffered, treatment that you have ever had, a history of similar illnesses in your family. The doctor will also do a physical examination, especially listening to the sound of your lungs and heart, checking the chest cavity for any deformities, bruises, and other abnormalities.
Supporting examinations are also needed, such as needed as a heart record examination, chest x-ray, cardiac enzyme examination, blood tests, and so on that are adjusted to the results of the physical examination of the doctor. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
