Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
High cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia) and uric acid (hyperuricemia) levels can trigger various complaints in the body, including body aches. Most often, this pain appears around muscles and joints due to inflammation. Not infrequently, this inflammation can also trigger swelling, warmth, redness, stiffness, limited movement, and various other complaints. However, these two conditions alone very rarely trigger pain in the lower chest area as you mention.
Pain, tightness, and burning sensations in the lower chest area can result from several conditions, for example:
Digestive system disorders, for example GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease, reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus), gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers, cholangitis (inflammation of the bile), cholelithiasis (gallstones) Respiratory system disorders, for example pneumonia (inflammation lung parenchyma), pleurisy (inflammation of the lining of the lung) Others, for example myalgia (muscle pain), coronary heart disease, postherpetic neuralgia, psychosomatic disorders, and so on. , too spicy, fatty, contain gas and caffeine can aggravate this complaint. Likewise, the consumption of several drugs, such as anti-pain drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs, and so on.
Pain that is severe enough in intensity should be examined directly by a doctor for further evaluation. If necessary, the doctor will direct you to undergo tests, such as X-rays, ultrasound, heart records, and so on.
In the meantime, you can first compress the lower chest area so that the pain gets better. Wear comfortable clothes, and not too tight around the chest and stomach area so as not to put too much pressure on the painful area. Limit consumption of foods that can make the pain worse (as mentioned above). Also avoid taking drugs carelessly without a direct recommendation from a doctor.
Hope this helps ..
