Does It Include Symptoms Of Heart Disease?
Hello doctor. Doctor’s permission, I often experience sudden symptoms. Example: When I am relaxing, my left chest tb2 hurts. Like on a skewer. And it hurts a lot. Even if breathing is difficult, body position cannot be straightened, it must always be bent. Because if the body is upright, it will hurt more. Doctor’s advice? Tks
Hello Tian, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Left-sided chest pain can indeed be caused by a disruption in the heart that is very life-threatening such as a heart attack, however, due to complaints that you experience, the complaint can also be caused by several possible conditions such as:
Tension in the chest muscles Gastric acid disease Unstable angina pectoris Pleuritis Heart rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias) Panic attacks Due to several possible causes and can be caused by a heart attack, it is highly recommended that you check your complaints further to the doctor directly for evaluation Furthermore. It is very possible that after a physical evaluation has been carried out, it is recommended that you carry out further additional examinations such as a heart record (ECG), chest x-ray or other examination according to your doctor's judgment based on the results of the evaluation. After knowing the cause, then you can determine what therapy should be given to you.
In the meantime, there are a number of suggestions you can try to do besides going to your doctor, such as:
Paying further attention to whether there are certain things that trigger your complaints such as anxiety, consumption of certain foods etc., if any, try to avoid it as much as possible Limit the consumption of foods that are high in saturated fat and salt Increase consumption of vegetables and fruit Do regular exercise for at least 30 minutes every day by avoiding overly heavy or excessive exercise Avoiding stress Avoiding smoking and consuming alcoholic drinks Getting adequate rest every day for at least 6-8 hours every day Not taking any drugs without clear advice from the doctor who treats you If the complaint is suddenly felt again and is accompanied by shortness of breath, cold sweat, nausea / vomiting, radiating to the left arm / neck to decrease consciousness immediately go to the emergency room of the nearest hospital to get immediate help.
I hope this helps.
