Hi Berliana, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Chest pain is one of the most common symptoms. What is called chest pain is any sensation of pain, squeezing, stabbing or pressure that occurs in the chest.

Disorders of the muscles / bones in the chest area. Stomach acid disorders. Infections of the nerves. Panic attacks or panic attacks. Air between the two layers of the lungs. Heart attack.
In addition, it is also necessary to pay attention to additional characteristics that usually accompany chest pain caused by heart disease, including:
Chest pain occurs when doing activities. Causes difficulty breathing. The chest feels very compressed or very painful. Nausea and or vomiting. Dizzy. Pain that radiates to the arm, especially the left arm.
