Hello Yusi ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Complaints of chest tightness can be caused by various causes, can be caused by problems in digestion, lungs, heart, to psychological disorders. Anamnesa or further medical questions need to be done to find out the cause of the shortness that is felt. Here are some causes of tightness in the chest: problems with digestion such as GERD or the condition of acid reflux into the esophagus can cause complaints such as tightness and heat in the chest, mouth feels sour and pain in the stomach. Furthermore, if the chest tightness caused by problems in the lungs, possible causes can be in the form of asthma, spots in the lungs, pneumoni. Shortness complaints usually occur shortly after exposure to certain allergens such as dust or smoke in people with asthma, or because of exposure to bacterial infections that cause spots on the lungs. If the complaint of shortness comes from the heart, usually the severity of the tightness complaint is influenced by activity.
However, because chest tightness complaints are general complaints, you should check your complaint directly to the doctor, in order to get a comprehensive treatment, and if needed the doctor will carry out further examinations such as heart records, thoracic x-rays, or blood samples to find out the exact cause. .
If the tightness that you feel is more due to digestive problems such as gerd, some things you should pay attention to are: maintaining regular eating patterns, temporarily avoid consuming foods with a hard texture, try to consume foods with a soft texture, so that the stomach can digest more easily , avoid consuming food or drinks with high vitamin C content, it can cause the stomach wall that is experiencing injury, become more painful. Soft drinks, foods with excess oil, caffeine to alcohol should also be avoided, adequate rest and avoid stress can also help the recovery process. If you want to exercise, try to keep the stomach from not empty, try to fill the stomach 1 hour before with light textured foods such as regal and the like, and not in large portions. If the application of eating patterns is correct, hours of eating time are correct, avoid staying up late and stress and avoid triggers the emergence of pain. The possibility of complaints can be reduced.
But if the complaint does not go away, and is felt continuously there is a high fever, pain in the chest to spread to the shoulder or left arm, there is a deep black chapter. You should immediately see a doctor.
Thus my answer hopefully helps.
