Chest Feels Hot And Heart Beats Fast?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Heartburn and pain in the chest are not always the result of heart disease. Likewise with an increased heart rate.
The causes of the burning sensation and pain in the chest as you are experiencing can be caused by:
Gastrointestinal disorders, for example due to GERD (reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus), gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), stomach ulcers
Disorders of the heart and blood vessels, for example due to a heart attack, pericarditis (inflammation of the lining of the heart)
Respiratory disorders, for example due to pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma), pleurisy (inflammation of the membranes covering the lungs), bronchitis (inflammation of the airways leading to the lungs)
Others, for example, Herpes zoster infection, post-herpestic neuralgia, fibromyalgia, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
When you feel uncomfortable sensations that are quite disturbing, including heat and pain, your body will produce more stress mediators. This mediator will have an effect on increasing the work of the heart so that the heart rate will increase. So, it does not specifically refer to heart disease.
Heart disease is generally characterized by a dull pain that cannot be pointed with one finger, and the sensation is like being pressed by a heavy object. These complaints may improve with rest and worsen with activity. If these are the characteristics of the complaints you are experiencing, it is advisable for you to check with your doctor directly. That way, further evaluation can be carried out, whether it is true that your complaint is related to heart disease, or others, for example through a physical examination, heart records , X-rays, ultrasound, and so on.
At this time, first compress the chest area that is uncomfortable using a warm compress. Get plenty of rest and don't panic or worry too much. Eat regularly little but often, reduce spicy food. Do not smoke, exercise regularly, and increase consumption of antioxidants (eg fruit, vegetables, fish oil).
Hope it helps ya..
