Left Chest Pain That Radiates To The Ribs And Back?

Hello doctor good evening, I want to ask, before I was a bit obese, my weight was 98 kg and 178 cm tall and I was 24 years old, I experienced pain such as tension in the upper left and middle chest area, it felt like pain in the cartilage / ribs to the tension in my left arm, sometimes the pain increases somewhat when I make a move, and if my pressure is pressed against the top the middle feels pain, but I don’t feel shortness of breath or cold sweats, guess that’s why? and why spread to other areas? , I’m worried about heart disease, thank you

Hello Fariz,


Thank you for the question.

Pain in the upper and left middle chest area that feels up to the left arm can indeed be caused one of them by heart disease, such as coronary heart disease, heart valve disorders, pericarditis, heart rhythm abnormalities, heart attacks, and so on. Obesity is one of the risk factors for heart disease, besides sedentary lifestyle, smoking habits, alcohol and drug consumption, genetics, and other metabolic disorders. Indeed, most people with heart disease will also feel tightness and excessive cold sweating. However, not the appearance of this complaint did not necessarily necessarily be able to get rid of the diagnosis of heart disease.


In addition to heart disease, pain in the chest to the left arm that you feel may also occur due to bronchitis, pleurisy, muscle pain, nerve pain, gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, rheumatoid arthritis, side effects of drugs, psychological disorders, and so on.


To be clear, it is better to check yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine. If you suspect that there is a more serious condition, the doctor will often recommend that further tests be carried out, such as x-rays, heart records, ultrasound, and so on.


In the meantime, the pain that arises can you relieve first with plenty of rest, warm compresses to the chest pain in the arm, exercise more diligently, wear comfortable clothes, do not always think about anything, drink plenty of warm water, do not smoke, and not too late eat.


Hope this helps ...
