Hello, I have a complaint. Yesterday night I showered, u0026amp; after bathing when I breastfeed my child. Right chest severe pain u0026amp; feels heavy, before I had a history of TB u0026amp; have been treated for 6 months u0026amp; declared complete recovery with Dr Lung specialist. I have asthma. I don’t have a fever, but I cough, u0026amp; a little weak because of pain in the chest. I have no sore throat. What steps should I take? Thanks.
Thank you for the question.
Chest pain is a general complaint that can arise from disorders of several types of organs, depending on the type of pain that is felt, the location of chest pain, its spread, along with the originator, and the history of other diseases that you have.
The following are possible causes of chest pain that can occur:
Lung disorders, such as pleurisy, or pulmonary hypertension.
Heart disorders, such as inflammation of the muscles or membranes of the heart lining, heart attacks, or heart failure.
Indigestion (which is usually accompanied by pain in the pit of the stomach), such as gastric acid, dyspepsia syndrome, or stomach ulcers.
Disorders of the chest muscles and surrounding structures, such as costchondritis.
Psychological disorders, such as psychosomatic disorders, somatization disorders, and panic disorders.
Here are recommendations that you can take at home to reduce symptoms:
Improve diet, such as eating regularly, avoid foods that contain lots of gas, sour, spicy, oily, contain soda, and caffeine.
Adequate nutritional and fluid needs of at least 2-3 liters per day.
Regular exercise and sleep 7-9 hours per day.
Manage stress well.
Immediately to the emergency room if your chest pain is felt like being crushed by a heavy object, radiating to the arm, back, jaw, or neck, pain accompanied by dizziness, cold sweat, nausea, vomiting, palpitations, and shortness of breath.
Hopefully this information can help.
