Lung Pain When Breathing Long.?
Good afternoon, I am 33 weeks pregnant right when I was in control yesterday, but there was a complaint that my legs were a bit swollen, but why now I feel my lungs really hurt so if I take a long breath like a lung disease that I once felt. I used to have a history of pulmonary pain until I had to go to the stage that every day for 2 months it had to be injected and take pulmonary medicine for 6 months but it happened already quite a long time ago but why now for sleeping on your left side it really hurts even though you’re pregnant right? in an effective way to sleep on this left side because I’m really sick I can sleep if it is tilted right away because of the pain of the lungs … guess what should I do?
Hello, Aditia. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints of chest pain, especially when breathing in may be caused by lung problems. Other symptoms that usually accompany are shortness, coughing, fever. The cause can be infection, inflammation, or malignancy. However, there are still a number of other possible causes of chest pain that cannot be ruled out without anamnesis and physical examination by a doctor, including problems with:
Heart (pain felt like being hit by a heavy burden / squeezing, radiating to the left shoulder / jaw / left arm, weighing with physical / emotional activity, improving with rest or administration of nitrate drugs, can be accompanied by cold sweat / nausea / vomiting / difficulty breathing; risks include smoking, obesity, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, old age, lack of physical activity, and first-line family history [biological parents, siblings] with coronary heart disease at a young age [<55 years for men, <65 years for woman]) Muscle / bone (heavy pain when a certain part is pressed, can be related to a history of trauma) Digestive tract (usually caused by an increase in stomach acid into the esophagus, feels like heat / burning in the chest, sour / bitter taste in the mouth, stomach feels good ) Psychological (being a cause that is thought about when other possible causes have been eliminated) You are advised to immediately consult a doctor or a specialist internal disease. The doctor needs to do anamnesis, physical examination, and supporting examinations (if there are indications), such as a heart record (ECG), chest x-ray, or blood tests if needed. At home, you are advised to avoid smoking, maintain your weight within the normal range, exercise regularly, and consume balanced nutritious food.
