Thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Having complaints of chest pain, the first thing to think about is a disturbance in the lungs and heart organs. However, do not rule out the possibility of other causes. In brief, the conditions that can be thought of as the cause of your current complaint are as follows:
Disorders of blood circulation in the heart muscle. If this condition is felt suddenly, it is known as a heart attack where blood flow cannot take place optimally, causing the death of heart muscle tissue. Disorders of the great blood vessels or the aorta in the heart. Inflammation of the lining of the lungs, known as pleurisy. This condition is characterized by chest pain when inhaling. Injury to the chest muscles Allergies and asthma. Injury to the sternum or ribs. Gastritis or inflammation of the mucous membrane of the stomach. Pancreatitis. Inflammation of the pancreas. But of course this condition is accompanied by digestive complaints such as heartburn, nausea and vomiting. Presence of acid reflux disease or GERD. Presence of other medical conditions.
It is necessary to know whether there is a history of previous injuries or not. The conditions above can be considered as your current condition. To be sure, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor to assess pain and the location of pain in the chest so that appropriate treatment can be carried out.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
