Mid Chest Pain, Palpitations, Shortness Of Breath And Pain In The Left Shoulder And Back?
Good evening..I am Dian 29th. For the past few days I have felt pain in the middle of the chest, especially when pressed. The heartbeat also feels faster. Every time I feel tired, my back will hurt, like aches. Usually the back as a whole, or only in the middle of the back, and if you already feel the pain will penetrate to the chest, after that makes a little shortness of breath. So when I feel like that, usually I immediately rest. And after resting for a while my breath will begin to regulate and improve. Istirhat is not always using sleep. Sometimes just lying down is enough to reduce the pain and tightness. Usually I do not feel the pain together. Only when tired bysanya appears pain in the back that finally penetrates the chest. But these days all appear together. From pain in the middle of the chest when pressed, faster heart palpitations, pain in the left shoulder and pain in the translucent back of the chest until it feels tight … Approximately what kind of pain I’m experiencing huh? Are there any heart symptoms? It so happened that my father also had a heart disease … Please explain … Thank you …
Thank you for the question.
Pain that feels dominant in the middle of the chest, sometimes penetrating from the back, accompanied by shortness of breath and increased heart rate can occur due to heart problems, or may not. Indeed, people with offspring with heart problems will be far more at risk for heart problems. As for heart problems that can cause complaints as you feel there are many types, for example heart attacks, heart valve disorders, heart rhythm disorders, heart swelling, to congestive heart failure. Usually, complaints due to heart problems will feel heavy when you activity, and improve when resting. Not only that, complaints from heart problems can spread to the area of the neck, jaw, back, or left arm. Heart disorders can also make you feel tightness, dizziness, nausea, excessive cold sweat, fatigue, weakness, and sometimes even trigger a decrease in consciousness.
As mentioned above, your complaints, aside from heart problems, can also be caused by other factors, for example gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, peptic ulcers, cholangitis, cholecystitis, pancreatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, pleurisy, pneumonia, pleural effusion, somatoform disorder, nerve nerve, drug side effects, excessive anxiety disorders, viral or bacterial infections, and so on.
