Chest Tightness When I Wake Up?
Hello. Why does my chest feel a little tight when I wake up? This event occurs only occasionally, not always
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tightness in the chest can occur due to disorders of the respiratory tract, digestion, heart, muscles and supporting tissues, psychological, and so on. Your complaints are heavy when you wake up actually do not typically refer to the symptoms of certain diseases. However, it could be that this complaint gets worse when I wake up due to cold environmental conditions, thereby stimulating airway constriction due to its swollen walls and increased mucus production. This condition can occur in people with asthma, bronchitis, or bronchhiolitis. Not only shortness, due to these diseases, often you will also experience coughing, chest pain, additional breath sounds, and other complaints that are quite limiting your activities.
In addition to the above conditions, it could also be, tightness in the chest that you feel occurs due to gastroesophageal reflux disease, pneumothorax, tonsillopharyngitis, gastritis, gastric ulcer, congestive heart failure, panic attacks, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
If your complaint feels mild, the following natural steps you can take at home:
Compress the chest when feeling tight with warm water. Do lots of breathing exercises, including swimming, yoga, Thai chi, jogging, jumping rope, basketball. Use a comfortable sleeping pad, also choose the sleeping position that you think is most comfortable. Eat with discipline, small portions but often Don't overeat foods that contain a lot of gas Don't smoke, stay away from the smoke Don't overactivate in a polluted environment Avoid anxiety, fear, panic, or excessive stress Use comfortable clothes, don't be too tight on the chest But, if complaints don't improve with the steps above, you try to check yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine in order to further evaluate the originator of your complaint. Depending on the cause and severity, the doctor may later give you several types of drugs, such as those given through drinking, steam, injections, and so on.
Hope this helps ...
