I went to a psychiatrist and was prescribed Atarax and Amitriptyline. Today the pain in my chest is more painful than usual and I have taken the medicine as recommended by the doctor, namely 2 times a day, but my pain doesn’t go away?

Hi, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com.
Anxiety disorder is a psychological condition in which a person feels excessively anxious. It is normal for a person to have feelings of anxiety when faced with certain situations. However, excessive anxiety can have an adverse effect on a person. Various symptoms in the body can appear related to anxiety such as difficulty sleeping, restlessness, fatigue, headaches, nausea, stomach pain, chest pain, excessive sweating, rapid breathing, fast heart rate, etc. Some specific conditions can also be caused by psychological conditions such as anxiety such as increased stomach acid, disturbed bowel movements, increased blood pressure, etc.
The condition of pain in the chest and burning in the chest is often caused by irritation of excessive stomach acid. This condition is very closely related to the psychological condition that you are experiencing, although it is still necessary to consider the existence of organic problems in the related organs. We recommend that you return to consult with a psychiatrist for a re-evaluation of your condition and an evaluation of the treatment you have been undergoing. The new doctor will be able to determine the next action that is right for you based on the results of a direct examination of you.
Some of the things you can do include:
- avoid excessive stress
- multiply drinking water
- avoid foods that can stimulate stomach acid such as spicy food, coconut milk food, caffeine
- avoid lying down within 1-2 hours after eating
Thus, hopefully useful.
