Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Complaints that you experience can indicate interference with the muscles, joints, bones and organs of the body found in the chest (such as the heart and stomach).
1. Muscle pain or myalgia, usually caused by excessive stretching of muscles that are not as usual, often occurs when a person is exercising without warming up or has only been exercising for a long time.
2. Joint pain or atralgia in the sternum can occur due to the habit of being in the wrong sleeping position.
3. The breastbone can be traumatized, both minimal until broken.
4. Disorders of the heart and stomach will be accompanied by other related symptoms. Where pain in heart problems will be accompanied by the spread of pain to the shoulders, hands and left jaw accompanied by cold sweat. While pain in stomach disorders will feel like burning or stabbing accompanied by begah, often belching, nausea to vomiting.
Try to do your exercise properly, starting with warm up and ending with cooling. Pay attention to the intensity of your exercise, do not rush to raise it, let the body adapt for several times the exercise first and then raised. Do exercise regularly, 5 times a week with a minimum of 30 minutes each. Give cold compresses to the sore chest alternately with warm compresses. You can also take over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol.
If the chest has just experienced trauma, or if accompanied by symptoms such as heart or stomach problems, you should immediately consult with your nearest doctor. So that further inspection and handling can be carried out.
Thus hopefully useful.
