Overcoming Chest Pain Accompanied By Stomach Pain?
I want to ask sometimes my chest hurts all of a sudden “my stomach hurts and I often cough” what is the medicine and how do I deal with it
The complaints you are experiencing may be related to acid reflux disease, which is a condition in which gastric juices flow back into the esophagus (the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach) causing irritation. As a result, symptoms such as chest pain, burning in the chest/heartburn, heartburn, nausea or vomiting, a lump in the throat, or coughing appear. Handling stomach acid disease includes the administration of drugs, dietary regulation, and changes to a healthy lifestyle.
However, please note that complaints of chest pain can also arise due to other medical conditions such as:
Muscle strain or muscle injury Lung disorders (pleural effusion, pulmonary embolism) Problems with other digestive organs (pancreatitis, gallstones) Heart disorders
To determine the cause of the complaints you are experiencing, you should see a doctor for further examination. In addition to performing a physical examination, if necessary, the doctor can recommend supporting tests such as X-Ray, blood tests, endoscopy or CT Scan for further analysis. From the results of this examination, the doctor will be able to trace the cause and determine the right treatment for you according to the underlying condition.
The following are suggestions that you can do to reduce complaints:
Get enough rest and reduce physical activity that requires chest muscle strength such as lifting weights, pulling or pushing Eat regularly and try not to eat late Eat small portions but with a frequent frequency of 5-6 times a day Avoid eating spicy, fatty, oily, sour or gassy Do not lie down immediately after eating Avoid caffeine, alcohol and cigarettes Avoid large meals 2 hours before bed Minimize stress
