your symptoms may be caused by angina, but to be sure to do a direct examination can not just diagnose it with the symptoms that you experience without examination. because there are some things that can also cause left chest pain including:
disorders of the digestive tract: Disorders of the digestive tract can cause pain in the left chest because gas that accumulates can push the intestines. For example gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or pain in the gut.
Lung problems: Left-sided pain can indicate a lung problem, one of which is a lung infection. In addition to left chest pain, symptoms of lung problems can include shortness of breath and persistent coughing.
injury: chest injury can cause left chest pain. The reason is because injuries can suppress the nervous system, causing pain and numbness.
