Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified, what drugs did you take before undergoing wisdom tooth surgery? Have you taken the drug before? So, did you experience complaints like this after taking the drug before?
Pain in the middle of the chest, especially when swallowing, breathing in, sleeping on your back, belching, holding back laughter, coughing, and sneezing can occur due to many causes, including one of the side effects of drugs. Several types of drugs, including pain medications, anti-inflammatory drugs, and antibiotics that doctors commonly prescribe after undergoing dental surgery in sensitive people can indeed trigger an increase in stomach acid. This condition can trigger discomfort (including pain) in the chest area as you feel. In mild conditions, this pain usually gets better after you eat. However, in more severe cases, the pain can be prolonged so that it requires further treatment from a doctor.
Not only due to the side effects of the drug, but also, the pain in the middle chest that you feel is due to other causes, for example:
Pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma) --- can be triggered one of them as a result of aspiration (choking, including choking on drugs as you experienced before)
Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa)
GERD (reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus)
Fibromyalgia (musculoskeletal pain that appears accompanied by fatigue, mood disorders, memory, and sleep)
Pleuritis (inflammation of the lining of the lung)
Rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to autoimmune disorders, rheumatism)
Heart attack (chest pain that occurs due to narrowing of the carotid blood vessels that supply the heart muscle)
Psychosomatic disorders, and so on
If you have had your complaint checked by a doctor and given treatment, you should first undergo the treatment as recommended by the doctor. Mostly, conditions like yours are mild and can improve within 1 to 3 days after taking the drug. Also balance the doctor's treatment with the following steps:
Compress the sore chest area using a warm compress
Do not over massage the sore chest
Reduce tiring activities that involve contracting the muscles of the chest, back and arms
Get used to eat regularly, reduce acidic, spicy, and oily foods
Do not go to sleep immediately after eating, give a break of 2 to 3 hours first
Eat small portions every 4 to 5 hours, not too full
Drink lots of warm water, avoid excessive caffeine
Choose comfortable clothes
Stay away from alcohol
Do not smoke
However, if there is no significant improvement, even though you have undergone doctor's treatment and natural treatment steps as mentioned above, you should not hesitate to check your complaint again to a doctor or an internal medicine specialist. Some tests, such as X-rays, ultrasound , heart records, and so on, the doctor may do so that the diagnosis can be made correctly.
Hope it helps ..
