Please help. My father since last night complained of pain such as rheumatic pain from the hands and to the chest became tight. This happens at night or at dawn only. I have taken my father to the nearest hospital emergency room. My father was obese, but from the results of blood pressure tests, heart records, blood oxygen levels and blood sugar are all normal. Then we were only given medicine for the stomach, anti-pain and fever. After taking medicine but it still relapsed at night. What kind of disease did my father have? My father has a history of gout and if I look at the right elbow my father is currently a bit swollen.

Hello Okky,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Pain that feels from the hands to the chest, accompanied by shortness of breath, as your father experienced can indicate interference with:

Digestion, for example gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, peptic ulcers
Breathing, for example bronchitis, pleurisy, pneumonia, asthma
Cardiovascular, such as heart attacks

Others, such as nerve pain, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, psychosomatic disorders, post-injury, panic attacks, etc.

High uric acid levels can cause pain in the hands to the chest and swelling as your father is experiencing at this time. However, even high uric acid should not cause your father to experience shortness of breath.


If you have ever seen your father by a doctor, and are declared not to have a dangerous condition, in fact you can be calmer. You can accompany your father to undergo treatment according to the doctor's advice accompanied by the following steps:

Compress the hands to the sore chest with warm water
Not always excessive physical activity
Calm yourself, don't overdo emotions
Eat more regularly, small portions but often
Don't over-eat spicy, sour, fatty, greasy, and gassed foods
Limit foods that contain purines, such as organ meats, animal skins, nuts
Not too much to drink caffeinated, fizzy drinks
Don't sleep right after eating
Do not consume alcohol, stay away from cigarettes
Not taking drugs carelessly
Lose weight so as not to overdo it
Live a healthy lifestyle, including with adequate rest and regular exercise

If after undergoing medical treatment and treatment steps above your father's complaints still do not improve, you should check him back to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine at the nearest health facility huh ..


I hope this helps.
