Pain In The Left Chest, Left Shoulder, And Spine?
I want to ask, for the past 2 weeks I have experienced excruciating pain in the solar plexus, left chest, left shoulder, and spread to the spine. Everything feels like being stabbed, especially when breathing. I have been to the tar several times and given medicine, no effect at all, the pain has not reduced in the slightest. I have been referred to a specialist in the early diagnosis, he said my stomach acid is high. I was given medicine and my heartburn has disappeared but the pain in my left chest is getting worse, my shoulders and spine are still not changing, do you think that’s why?, please answer
Hi Ahmad Afifudin.. Thank you for the questions given.
Left chest pain can be caused by several things, including:
Increased stomach acid -- burning sensation in the chest, a sour or bitter taste in the mouth, frequent belching, heartburn Chronic Gastritis -- inflammation of the stomach, accompanied by heartburn, nausea, vomiting, bloating Coronary heart disease -- pain It is felt on the left chest and radiates to the left arm, shoulder, chin, and jaw. Pain feels like being crushed or stabbed, accompanied by cold sweat, and does not improve with rest. If your complaint does not improve, pain persists, the body becomes weak and there is an eating disorder, then it is better if you go back to the doctor or see an internal medicine doctor. The doctor will perform a physical examination, which can be followed by an EKG check to see if the cause is a heart disorder, or endoscopy by inserting a small camera through the mouth to the stomach so that the cause of your complaint can be identified. As well as in the treatment of increased stomach acid requires regular treatment for 8-10 weeks.

Avoid caffeine, cigarettes, alcohol Eat regularly Avoid spicy and sour foods Avoid stress and get enough rest May be beneficial
