Within 20-30 minutes, left chest pain and palpitations, fingers stiff and cold when held, foot cramps, shortness of breath, nausea, tight leg muscles, dizziness, left ear feels clogged, all of it feels in my body alternately.
Hello Bella Karina, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Some possible causes of your complaint include:
Electrolyte disorders (hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, hyponatremia)
Anemia or lack of blood
Dehydration or lack of fluids
Vertigo or dizzy spinning
Stress or fatigue in some people can trigger panic attacks or stimulate nerves in the body so that complaints can appear as you feel. Electrolyte disturbances can also cause disruption of nerve electricity and also work on the muscles. Was the event that occurred 3 months ago also triggered by stress or fatigue? How long do you feel the duration of the complaint, is there also a disturbance of consciousness or a decrease in consciousness / fainting?
To determine the exact cause of your complaint, you should consult directly with an internist or psychiatrist because the doctor requires additional information, a physical examination directly blood tests to measure electrolytes or hemoglobin in the blood to determine the exact cause of your complaint,
Some things you can do are:
Drink at least 2 liters of water and get enough rest every day
Eat foods with balanced nutrition
Avoid excessive stress or anxiety
Hopefully this information can be useful. Thank you
