At noon, yesterday I ate Pempek not fried. Then I feel a right chest pain. And until now if you swallow food, drink it has chest pain. Not the throat but the right chest. That’s why. Then how do you cure it?
Hello Ogi, thank you for asking.
Basically there is no relationship between eating raw food with chest pain. Except if you always eat raw food, causing an infection in the digestive tract. Chest pain can be caused by various disorders, both in the chest wall, or in the structure of organs in the chest. There are several possible causes that you can experience, including:
Gastritis. Gastric wall irritation which can be felt as pain or heat and stinging in the chest close to the solar plexus, can also be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, bloating, no appetite, fast satiety, and often belching. GERD. Conditions where the contents of the stomach and stomach acid turn up to the throat, causing pain along the chest to the throat. Can also be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, upper abdominal pain, sore throat or swallowing pain, and dry cough. Esophagitis. Inflammation of the esophagus is the channel that connects the oral cavity with the stomach. Infection of the small intestine. You should consult this matter with your doctor. The doctor will do a basic physical examination and if necessary conduct investigations such as blood tests in the lab, X-rays, or ultrasound. In the meantime, you can try to ease the pain by choosing foods that don't stimulate digestion. Avoid cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine. Limit foods that are too spicy, too sour, and too oily. Expand to eat vegetables and fruit, and avoid eating raw foods. Hope this answer helps. Regards.
