Pain in the chest area can be caused by various causes. Pain in the chest area is not always caused by heart disease.
one of the causes that can cause chest pain is acid reflux disease. Acid reflux disease (GERD) is a condition where there is an increase in stomach acid to the throat. This happens because of the weakness of the muscles that limit the stomach and throat. GERD often occurs in people with a history of alcohol consumption, often lying down immediately after eating, obesity, or with excessive anxiety.
GERD can cause symptoms such as chest pain, heartburn, shortness of breath, palpitations, bitter mouth, nausea. GERD requires therapy using certain stomach drugs.
But besides that the condition you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
Coronary heart disease, heart rhythm disorders, heart valve disease, pulmonary infection, gallstones. If it is true that later after the examination is obtained it is not because of a heart problem, then you can also check with an internal medicine specialist. Maybe later additional tests such as blood tests, X-rays, or heart catheterization will be done if necessary.
It is recommended that you do not smoke, avoid anxiety and excessive stress. do not lie down immediately after eating. avoid alcohol consumption. regular exercise.
