Pain That Comes Suddenly?
Good night. I want to ask, when I was sleeping suddenly the left chest hurts, while at the same time it hurts on the neck as well as the middle chest. And soon I felt nauseous. What does it have to do with heart disease? Or heartburn? Because I have a history of acute heartburn. Please explain and the solution.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the left chest, middle, to the neck, accompanied by nausea can indeed be a sign of heartburn (gastritis). In people with gastritis, these complaints often arise because they are triggered or aggravated by several factors, for example:
Excessive consumption of oily, spicy, gassed and caffeinated foods
Lying down or sleeping after eating --- because it can encourage acid from the stomach to go up the esophagus
Severe mental stress
Obesity, including in pregnant women
Side effects of consuming certain drugs, such as pain medications, antibiotics, and so on
In addition, chest and neck pain and nausea that you feel may also occur due to other triggers, for example GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), heart attacks, bronchitis, stomach ulcers, duodenal ulcers, fibromyalgia, panic attacks, excessive anxiety disorders, etc. .
Your previous history of gastritis may be the basis of your current complaint, or it could be another condition that triggers it. To be clear, you can check yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine, yes. If it is true that the doctor suspects that you have gastritis, further tests, such as ultrasound or endoscopy can also be done by a doctor to confirm the best diagnosis and treatment.
In the meantime, you can relieve the pain in your chest and neck by using warm water compresses. Get used to eating regularly, small portions but often, and not always excessive consumption of oily, spicy, gassed, and caffeinated foods. Try not to lie down or sleep immediately after eating, give a pause of at least 2 to 3 hours after eating. Do not forget, be diligent in exercising so that your weight remains ideal, avoid excessive stress / sadness / anxiety, do not smoke, do not consume alcohol, and do not also consume drugs carelessly.
Hope this helps ...
