Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Left-hand chest pain that radiates to the back like being pricked, often belching, heartburn, and frequent bowel movements as you experience can refer to several conditions, one of which is GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). GERD is indeed more susceptible to obesity sufferers because of disruption of the function of the smooth muscle ring that limits the stomach to the esophagus. As a result, some acid from the stomach will rise and irritate the esophagus. Complaints due to GERD will typically worsen after eating, especially large meals at night, and consumption of certain types of foods and drinks, for example greasy, fatty foods, as well as caffeinated drinks. In more severe cases, GERD can make you vomit, have difficulty breathing, palpitations, have trouble sleeping, and have many other complaints.
Not only GERD, your current complaints may also be triggered by other factors, for example:
Other gastrointestinal disorders, such as gastritis, peptic ulcers, gastric cancer, cholangitis, inflammation of the intestine, pancreatitis
Disorders of muscles, joints, bones and supporting tissues, such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, nerve nerves
Heart and blood vessel disorders, such as heart attacks, pericarditis
Others, such as somatoform disorders, panic attacks, asthma, bronchitis, drug side effects, and so on
Need to be clarified, have you ever checked yourself into a doctor?
If not, as early as possible, you should check with your doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. Investigations, such as X-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, laboratory, heart record, etc. can be done by your doctor so that your condition can be clearly identified the cause and the best way to handle it. As an initial management step:
First compress your chest, back and the area near your waist with warm water
Don't over-exert physical activity, get plenty of rest
Eat more regularly, small portions but often
Don't over-eat fatty, oily foods, also drink caffeinated and fizzy drinks
When a complaint feels disturbing, multiply to eat foods that are easily digested, for example porridge or rice soup
Don't make it a habit to eat too much, especially before bedtime
Control your emotions well, avoid excessive anxiety and sadness
Not taking drugs carelessly
Lose your body weight to be more ideal, by exercising regularly every day (the recommended duration of exercise is not less than 30 minutes per year)
Don't smoke or consume alcohol
Hope this helps ...
