Left Chest Pain And Shortness Of Breath?
4 years ago I fell from a height of about 2 and a half meters and the first to touch the ground was my waist automatically I could not breathe and vision was dark, could not make a sound. After a while I tried to crawl for help. Since then my breath has become short, I can’t stand long, my left chest sometimes feels painful like a pinch. Why is that?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Your previous injury history has improved in the injured body part. However, of course these improvements can return to normal conditions before injury or even leave residual symptoms. Every part of the body that has an injured or torn injury can have residual symptoms in the form of a brush. Brushrik is the formation of scar tissue in damaged body tissue as a body mechanism in replacing the previous tissue. Brushrik can also form on the lining of the lungs, making it difficult for the lungs to develop, so that breathing feels short. In addition, lung tissue damage can also occur, which causes a shortage of lung tissue capacity in performing the functions of the respiratory system so that breathing feels short.
However, it may be that what happens to you is only somatoform disorders. Where you feel a variety of complaints that basically no organic problems are found. Complaints arise due to psychological disorders that occur due to a history of past trauma.
To be able to find out the cause of your complaint, you should immediately consult a pulmonary doctor. The doctor will conduct a medical question and answer and a physical examination of the lungs. Furthermore, the doctor will conduct a chest X-ray examination if necessary. If no organic problems are found in your respiratory system, your doctor may need to consult a psychiatrist.
Meanwhile, you can do yoga to relax the mind. Make sure to breathe in a deep breath which is then exhaled slowly. This will also help improve your work ability and lung capacity
Thus hopefully useful.
