Neck And Head That Hurt And Left Chest Tightness, Whether Due To Fatigue Or An Illness?
Good night. I am a woman aged 24 years 9 months. My height is 158 and my weight is 65. It’s been a month off work to relax at home, before I worked as an accounting. These days I often stay up late and sleep in the living room chair. I sleep from 2 or 3 in the morning. But in the morning until the afternoon I lay in my room. Sometimes I just sleep at 8 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon. Wake up just to eat. These days my neck often aches to the head (not a pain like a sprain but the pain is really annoying). Yesterday, when I checked cholesterol, the result was 202. But for one week, my chest was uncomfortable. Like tightness and thumping. My question. Are my aching neck and head and tightness (left side) tight and the result of fatigue or illness? (sometimes when I get bored with sports, I walk 15 minutes every day, and cardio every night for 4 times a week with 30 minutes duration). Thank you for the answer.

To be able to find out the cause of the symptoms of chest pain, history taking, physical examination, and supporting examinations by doctors, such as heart record (ECG), chest x-ray, or blood tests (according to indications found). Because there are several emergency conditions that may be a trigger for chest pain, you are advised to consult a doctor immediately so that you can do an appropriate evaluation and appropriate treatment as soon as possible.
The symptoms of headaches that are felt can be caused by other causes that coincidentally occur together with the conditions that cause chest pain, such as tension type headaches, migraines, or cluster type headaches. Consult this with the doctor who treats you for further evaluation.
As a recommendation, you should get enough rest with regular sleep every night for 7-8 hours, avoid smoking, lose weight to the normal range (body mass index 18.5-22.9 kg / m2), continue to exercise regularly, and eat balanced nutritious food.
