Right-sided Chest Pain, Especially When Breathing Air?
Good afternoon. Sorry before I want to ask. Lately I sometimes feel pain in the right chest, the pain will feel more intense when I breathe air. It is also uncertain when I felt the pain. Sometimes after eating, when lying down, and before I paid less attention. I also pay less attention to when I started feeling pain, whether before I was hospitalized because of a dental abscess or afterwards (because when I was treated at the hospital I was short of breath). According to my doctor why? What caused it? Can it prevent me from registering for cadets? How to handle it?
Hello Firliandini, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Chest pain that is felt especially when breathing in is often called pleuritic chest pain. This condition can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Pleuritis or inflammation of the pleura (membrane covering the lungs) that can be caused by lung infection (pneumonia), tuberculosis, pleural effusion, pneumothorax, pulmonary embolism, lung cancer, etc. Disorders of the heart and blood vessels, such as pericarditis, heart attacks, aortic dissection in the bones and muscles in the chest area, for example due to fractures or broken ribs, costchondritis Other disorders, such as herpes zoster, psychiatric disorders physical and supporting examination to be able to establish a definitive diagnosis. The doctor will probably recommend additional tests such as chest x-rays, if needed can also be done sputum examination, ECG, Echocardiography, or blood tests. Treatment for each of the possible causes above can vary. Therefore the examination must be undertaken first.
Regarding whether the disease can prevent you from entering a cadet school, of course the cause must still be known first. If indeed the cause can be overcome prematurely you enroll in a cadet school, then the possibility of these conditions will not hamper your school.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
