Left-sided Chest Pain Accompanied By Shortness Of Breath And Cold Sweat?
Greetings, doctor. For 8 years now, I have chest pain on my left side, pain that feels pressure, accompanied by tightness, weakness, and cold sweat.
Hello. Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Related complaints of chest pain that should be felt should be considered the following points
- Does the pain spread to the left hand or back?
- Is there nausea, vomiting or bitter behind the mouth
- Is there a family history of heart?
- Is there a history of other diseases?
Some things that may be the cause of left chest pain are:
Stable chest pain or stable angina pectoris is a condition caused by the formation of a stable pile of fat in the heart arteries. Symptoms that are felt are tightness of the chest or feeling of pressure on the left chest, shortness of breath, and may feel very tired. Usually occurs after physical activity that makes the heart work harder and get better at rest.
Chest pain due to muscle contraction (printzmental angina) is a condition of muscle contraction of the heart arteries in certain conditions. Symptoms are painful at certain times but immediately improve perfectly at rest or using vasodilators (dilation of blood vessels)
GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease), which has a backflow of gastric contents to the esophagus. Stomach acid can damage the esophagus and cause pain in the upper abdomen that can reach the chest. Usually accompanied by bitter behind the tongue.
Uncontrollable stress can cause tightness. This condition can be exacerbated by unhealthy lifestyles, such as smoking and excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages. If this condition is not treated properly, it can lead to heart disease.
In conditions where experiencing the following should immediately go straight to the hospital emergency room for further examination
Feels heavy, like depressed and squeezed.
Spread from chest to arms, back, and jaw.
Lasts more than 15 minutes.
Accompanied by nausea, vomiting of blood, shortness of breath and sweating.
Have a risk of heart attack that is smoking, having obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or a family history of heart disease, especially one lineage.
So that we can say hopefully useful thanks
