Hello NurZaharah,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Puncture-like pain that feels dominant in the left chest to penetrate to the back, especially when inhaling, may indicate:


Pleuritis (inflammation of the lining covering the lungs and chest cavity)

GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease, backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus)
Pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma)
Fibromyalgia (musculoskeletal pain that appears accompanied by sleep disorders, mood, stamina, also memory)
Others, such as nerve pain, gastritis, peptic ulcers, panic attacks, heart attacks, psychosomatic disorders, post herpetic neuralgia, lack of vitamins or neurotropic minerals, etc.

This pain is actually not always dangerous. However, if its appearance is very disturbing and often repetitive, you better stay alert and check it directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. Further tests, such as heart records, x-rays, ultrasound, to endoscopy may be a doctor's recommendation if you suspect a serious condition.


In the meantime, first resolve your complaint with the following steps:

Compress chest to back pain with warm water
Set your breath properly
Expand to do stretching sports, for example swimming, yoga, thai chi
Don't worry too often, panic, or fear excessively
Eat with discipline, small portions but often
If there are certain foods or drinks that often make your complaints worsen, first avoid consuming these foods or drinks (for example soda, chili sauce, coconut milk)
Enough rest
Wear loose and comfortable clothes

Hope this helps ...
