Hello Jenny, Thank you for the question.
Are you experiencing other symptoms such as fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, heartburn, flatulence, diarrhea, palpitations, cold sweat, or other complaints? Do you know of any other triggers for the complaint? The complaint you mentioned is not related to consumption of cold drinks. Some of the causes of complaints of chest pain and shortness of breath are:
stomach acid disease
impaired heart, kidney or liver function
You are advised to consult a doctor immediately, especially because this complaint has been going on for a long time. The doctor needs to ask further questions about this complaint, examine you, and perform other tests such as blood tests, X-rays, ultrasound, or other tests. After knowing the cause of the examination, the doctor will determine the appropriate treatment. For now, try to recognize the trigger and avoid it. You are also encouraged to exercise regularly, get enough rest, avoid smoking, and manage stress well.
Hopefully this information is useful for you.
