Previously I had consulted with the doctor at the hospital, but the doctor could not confirm if I was not experiencing pain. What is the diagnosis of my complaint?rnThe pain is very disturbing, so it interferes with sleep. Thank you
Chest pain can be caused by a variety of reasons. From the situation you are experiencing, pain in the chest blood that feels like pressure, or discomfort, especially at night, may be caused by a Printzmetal angina.
Printzmetal angina is a type of variant angina. Pritzmetal's angina is a condition in which the coronary arteries spasm, causing a reduction in blood flow to the heart muscle. Printzmetal angina usually occurs frequently at night, and does not improve with rest. Printzmetal angina is more common in women. When there is no chest pain, usually a normal examination is obtained either on the ECG / cardiac record. Printzmetal angina causes symptoms such as pain like being crushed or pressured, pain radiating to the left arm and back, cold sweats, palpitations.
But apart from that, the situation you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
GERD / stomach acid disease
arrhythmias/heart rhythm disturbances
coronary heart disease
Therefore, it is recommended that you re-examine yourself to a cardiologist (SPJP) so that the doctor can examine your condition directly. maybe later additional examinations such as blood tests, 24-hour EKG (holter monitoring), CT scan or catheterization will be carried out if necessary.
It is recommended that you do not stress too much. Don't smoke and don't drink alcohol. enough rest. regular exercise. consume enough fruits and vegetables
