Good night,. I have left chest pain. After I found out on the internet the symptoms that I experienced were the same as costchondritis, and now the pain sometimes spreads to the head. Is that dangerous, and how to handle it? Thanks.

1 Answer:

Good morning Jiyan, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.

The causes of left chest pain vary, such as:

Heart attack Inflammation of the protective membrane of the heart Heart failure Muscle pain Inflammation of the protective membrane of the lungs Gastric acid disease (GERD) and several other conditions including costochondritis as you mentioned.

Costochondritis is a condition where there is inflammation of the cartilage in the ribs. The exact cause of this condition is unknown but is thought to be related to coughing that is too hard, injury to the chest, overuse (such as lifting heavy objects), and infection of the chest area.

In general, the condition of kostochondritis is not dangerous and can heal by itself, but it is advisable to see a doctor because one of the causes of left chest pain is a disturbance in the heart that needs immediate treatment. The doctor will probably do a heart record examination, blood test, and also chest xray to determine the cause of chest pain due to heart abnormalities or not.

While at home, pay attention to what and what symptoms accompany your chest pain. If the pain is felt like a heavy object is pressed and spread to the left hand or left jaw, accompanied by shortness of breath and cold sweat, immediately consult a emergency room at the nearest hospital.

I hope this helps.
