Middle Chest Tightness Accompanied By Palpitations?
Hello, for almost a week now I have felt pain and tightness in the middle of my chest, every time I lie down or want to sleep feeling tightness feels like my chest is being pressed, then my palpitations and my throat is like depressed every time I breathe when lying down .. . My appetite was reduced and my weight dropped to 3kg in just the last 2 weeks … But I didn’t feel dizzy, nauseous, or sick in my stomach … So I guess what caused it to be like this, and how to overcome it, thank you
Thank you for the question.
Pain and tightness are like being pressed in the middle of the chest, accompanied by palpitations, discomfort in the throat, decreased appetite, and weight loss which can also indicate some of the following conditions:
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (gastric acid that flows back into the esophagus due to the limiting valve disorders) Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa) Disorders of the heart valve (can be due to inflammation, infection, or abnormalities since birth) Bronchitis (inflammation of the lower airways leading to the lungs) Other factors For example, heart attacks, peptic ulcers, heart rhythm disorders, pleurisy, pneumonia, pneumothorax, panic attacks, specific phobias, fibromyalgia, psychosomatic disorders, etc. Not all of the above conditions are dangerous. However, if indeed the complaint has felt for days, you should not let it. Go to see your doctor or intern doctor so that your condition can be treated properly according to the cause. Usually, if you suspect a serious illness, your doctor will direct you to undergo a heart record, ultrasound, X-ray, endoscopy, or other investigations.
In addition, in order for your complaints to improve, you need to increase your time to rest, warm compresses to your chest that are uncomfortable, drink more warm water, eat small portions but often, do not over-eat and drink containing gas (for example mustard, cabbage , soda, caffeine), and not too much thinking. Finally, don't take any medicine without a prescription directly from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
