Shortness Of Breath Accompanied By Left Chest Pain And Heartburn?
I have experienced shortness of breath for 3 weeks, left chest pain and heartburn. The throat feels dry to sleep like snoring resulting in difficulty waking up with difficulty breathing. Hot chest felt feverish. What are you sick?
Hi M. Alief Elang .. Thank you for the question.
The symptoms as you are describing can be due to GERD / acid reflux. Increased stomach acid can result in pain in the gut, chest feeling hot or tight, mult feeling bitter or sour, bloating, belching, dry cough, especially at night, a change in voice, and a sudden increase in saliva. Symptoms are felt especially when lying down immediately after eating and when bending over.
Apart from GERD, left chest pain can also be caused by: infection of the lungs (eg pneumonia, peluritis / inflammation of the lining of the lungs); heart problems (such as heart attack, heart failure), but generally chest pain due to heart defects is dominated by pain in the left chest that radiates to the arm, jaw, or left shoulder.
If you still feel the complaints as you mentioned and feel the complaints are worsening, there are eating disorders, weight loss and weight loss, then it's a good idea to see a doctor. The doctor will conduct a direct examination and further examinations can be carried out, for example a heart record / EKG, endoscopy so that the diagnosis can be confirmed and appropriate treatment can be done
Apart from that you can do:
Eat nutritious food Avoid consuming foods that are too acidic, spicy, sour Avoid smoking, caffeine and alcohol Avoid lying down immediately after eating, at least 2 hours after eating, then you sleep / lie down Avoid excessive psychological stress because it can increase stomach acid Hopefully useful
