Left Chest Pain In A Mother Aged 30 Years?
good night, I am a housewife aged 30 years old … why is it that the left chest sometimes hurts. It used to be that the pain was rarely felt but lately it often hurts suddenly … if it’s already sick it feels like I can’t breathe … it hurts so much .. r nplease explain yes .. r nthank you.
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Chest pain in the left area can arise due to various causes, including:
Angina or a condition of narrowing of blood vessels to the heart Heart attack, which is when blood flow to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Disturbances in the digestive tract or acid reflux disease Lung problems such as pneumonia and pleurisy Stress
In your case, especially because this condition has become more frequent, you should consult a cardiologist to rule out the most dangerous possibility that can occur in advance. Your heart doctor will then ask you a few questions, which will be followed by a physical examination as well as support using an EKG or heart record, X-ray or CT scan. The treatment you will receive later will depend on the final results of the examination.
Meanwhile, avoid consuming fatty foods, keep cholesterol levels within normal limits, avoid excessive activity, do light exercise, maintain an ideal body weight, and avoid cigarette smoke and stress. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
