Hi Bayu,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

There are many possible causes for pain around the left chest. In order to determine the cause, often times, interviews and physical examinations are not enough. The doctor also needs to do a series of additional tests, for example x-rays, heart records, blood tests, ultrasound, endoscopy, and so on. Because it needs to be clarified first, did you not find any abnormalities in your body when you underwent the above examinations? So, is there absolutely no improvement in your complaints after seeing a doctor?


If it is true that you do not find any abnormalities in all the examinations you undergo, then it is likely that your chest pain, palpitations, weakness, frequent belching, body aches, and malaise that you experience are due to somatoform disorders. This condition reflects a disease or physical complaint that is thought to be caused or aggravated by mental factors, for example stress, anxiety, or excessive fear. According to some experts, this physical complaint arises due to increased activity of nerve impulses from the brain to various parts of the body which is mediated by adrenaline. This condition can also be influenced by certain personality types, parenting styles in the family, support from the environment, other illnesses that are suffered, and the lifestyle that has been carried out so far.


Try to introspect yourself, is there a problem that has weighed heavily on your mind? If, it could be the trigger. You can invite relatives or colleagues who you believe can help find solutions to your problems so that your mind is calmer. That way, physical complaints will generally improve slowly. Also balance the steps above with a healthy and balanced lifestyle, starting from sleeping regularly, eating enough and nutritionally, exercising diligently, and staying away from cigarettes and illegal drugs. If the pain is very disturbing, you can temporarily try to relieve the pain by taking paracetamol. Apply warm water to your chest and other areas that are sore and wear comfortable clothes. In activities, always pay attention to your posture in order to minimize the risk of injury which can lead to recurrent pain.


If after consistently doing the tips above for 2 to 4 weeks your complaints still don't get better, you can check back with your doctor. Some other possibilities that can trigger a series of complaints that you experience are:

Functional diepsia (increased stomach acid with no known cause)
Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa)
GERD (reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus)
Gastric ulcer
Duodenal ulcer
Pleuritis (inflammation of the lining of the lung)
Pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma)
Bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi)
Coronary heart disease
Costochondritis (inflammation of the ribs, joints and supporting tissue)
Deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals, and so on

Often times, diagnosing the exact cause and treating chest pain just can't be done in a short time. Therefore, comprehensive handling efforts are needed so that complaints get better, so not only by relying on doctor's drugs alone. By undergoing the handling steps as mentioned above and seeing a doctor directly, generally complaints can be resolved properly, and your quality of life will improve.


Hope it helps ..
