Causes Of Left Chest Pain In Short Duration?
Hi want to ask. My left chest often feels pain but its duration is short after that it goes away and often pounding. Yesterday I had a Thorax and after seeing the results, it was normal, only there was a little fat covering my heart, the doctor said. I’ve been having a lot of pain in the middle of my spine lately. Is the pain in that part spreading that causes my chest pain??? Please advice and what drugs can be consumed
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Left chest pain of short duration accompanied by palpitations occurs due to disorders of the heart and blood vessels, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, or other organ systems.
Need to be clarified again, what doctors mean by the presence of fat that covers your heart. Have you had an EKG (heart record)? Does your doctor suspect you have coronary heart disease?
Some of the possibilities that could trigger the complaints you are experiencing are:
Coronary heart disease Pleuritis (inflammation of the lining of the lungs) GERD (reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus) Cholangitis (inflammation of the bile) Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa) Bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi) Pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma) Pinched nerves Post herpetic neuralgia (pain after herpes zoster) ) Scoliosis (abnormal sideways curvature of the spine) Myalgia (muscle pain), etc. It is possible that pain in the middle of your spine appears related to one of the causes of chest pain above. Or, it could be that the pain in your spine arises due to other factors, for example, hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol), hypertension (high blood pressure), rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis due to rheumatism), and so on.
Try to check with your doctor again if the chest pain you feel is very disturbing. Not only x-rays, the doctor may also need to do a heart record, ultrasound, or other supporting tests to determine the possibility of a disease that requires special treatment.
Our advice, for the time being, you should avoid taking the drug unless it is prescribed directly by the doctor who examines you. You can compress your chest area using a warm compress while adjusting your breathing pattern so that the pain improves. Avoid excessive fear or anxiety. Rest and exercise regularly. Eat healthy and nutritious foods that are rich in antioxidants. Do not forget, stay away from cigarettes and smoke.
Hope it helps ya..
