Hello Ridwan, thank you for the question.
The chest is a cavity consisting of the heart, lungs, ribs, cartilage, muscles, and skin. Pain in the chest many causes can be from the heart and not the heart. In general, we differentiate into 2, namely cardiac chest pain (heart) and non-cardiac chest pain. Cardiac chest pain generally causes pain such as pressure in the left chest or the middle part, the pain is felt through to the back, to the jaw, to the arm. Chest pain due to the heart can also be accompanied by excessive sweating, nausea, vomiting, difficulty breathing, the location of unspecified pain cannot be appointed with one finger, and generally improves with nitroglycerin treatment. Chest pain due to the heart is usually felt after activity or moderate physical activity and improves with rest. While chest pain that is felt after a change of position, pain when coughing or breathing, sharp pain and can be appointed, and chest pain that is felt right (as you experience) generally leads to non-cardiac chest pain / not from the heart. Some other diseases that can cause chest pain include:
Lung diseases, such as infections, have fluid or air in the lungs
Muscle injury to the chest cavity
Trauma to the chest that causes tissue damage to broken ribs
Infections of the nerves that cause skin rashes
Infection of the skin or breasts
For chest pain caused by trauma or injury to the muscles or bones, it is usually characterized by pain when breathing, thus limiting a person to breathe and sometimes cause shortness of breath. However, to establish the diagnosis and ascertain the cause of the complaint, especially if chest pain is felt to shortness of breath and interfere with activities, you should consult a doctor to find out the cause and get adequate therapy. Doctors must conduct question and answer, physical examination, and supporting examinations such as laboratories, heart records (ECG), x-rays, and other examinations if needed to establish the diagnosis. Once the cause of the chest pain is known, the doctor may prescribe some medicines or take certain medical procedures if needed. We recommend that you compress on the area of pain, avoid excessive strenuous activities, especially those that put excessive strain on the chest, warm up before exercising, do regular exercise, adopt a healthy lifestyle, eat healthy and nutritious foods, meet adequate fluid needs, adequate rest, and consumption pain relievers that are sold freely on the market or prescribed by doctors when needed.
Thus, hopefully useful
