Hello Maya, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
The symptoms and signs that you mention can occur under normal circumstances, for example when shocked, scared, due to consumption of caffeine (coffee), after excessive exercise, or after carrying out activities that trigger adrenaline. However, the condition can also be caused by various diseases, such as:
1. Anemia. Anemia is a condition where the level of red blood cells is lower than the normal value so that the supply of oxygen to the tissues is disrupted. Symptoms and signs of anemia can be pale, weak, dizzy, dizzy, ringing in the ears, palpitations, and shortness of breath. There are several conditions that can cause anemia, such as iron deficiency, folic acid deficiency, post bleeding / menstruation, and long-lasting or chronic diseases.
2. Heart disease, such as congenital heart disease, coronary heart disease, and heart failure. Symptoms and signs of this disease can be left chest pain that can spread, shortness of breath, fast fatigue during activity, night sweats, tightness when lying down or sleeping with a low pillow.
3. Lung diseases, such as Tuberculosis, Pneumonia, Bronchitis. But in this lung disease the dominant symptoms and signs are cough (mucus or blood) which can be accompanied by fever, weight loss, night sweats, and a history of smoking.
4. Low blood pressure or hypotension, can cause a person to feel dizzy, nausea, vomiting, dizzy eyes, pale, cold acral, until fainting.
5. Mental health. In some cases, psychological factors such as problems at school, the office, or at home can cause symptoms of tightness, pale, and fast heart beat.
If it has been going on for a long time, has happened repeatedly, or has happened without a clear trigger, then I recommend that you go to a general practitioner or a specialist in internal medicine for a thorough examination, in the form of vital signs, blood laboratory tests , heart record and radiology (chest x-ray) if necessary, so that you get the right treatment according to your diagnosis.
The things that you can do right now are familiarize yourself with healthy living, such as:
- Get plenty of rest, normally 6-8 hours a day
- Eat healthy foods and consume enough water
- Take vitamins or iron supplements or folic acid
- Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption
- Exercise regularly for a minimum of 3 times a week 30 minutes each
- As far as possible avoid conditions that can cause stress
Thus the information I can give, hopefully helps.
