Sleeping On Your Back Or Squatting Feels Pain In Your Chest?
Mlem. I want to ask udh 2 days every time I want to sleep or squat why my chest hurts so tight. Under the left side of the chest hurts. It hurts like a muscle. Even though I was massaged, I still still hurt. I still have pain in the sore. Right now, I only put on a deep cream while holding the pain and forced to sleep on my back I only applied the cream temporarily. The effect of the cream runs out / it’s not hot, it’s burning again. Think what is my pain ???
Hello Shary, Thank you for the question.
Apart from left chest pain, have you experienced any other symptoms? Complaints of chest pain can be accompanied by various other symptoms such as cough, runny nose, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, fever, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, belching, excessive sweating, weight loss, and others. Left chest pain can be caused by:
pleurisy pneumonia tuberculosis pleural effusion pulmonary embolism acid reflux disease costochondritis angina chest wall injuries and others If this complaint is very disturbing, before the symptoms get worse, please consult a doctor directly because without a doctor's examination, the cause of your complaint cannot be ascertained. Apart from the need to ask further questions about this complaint, the doctor will need to examine you and perform other tests such as blood tests, sputum tests, X-rays, EKG, and others to find the cause. From this examination, the doctor will know the cause and only be able to determine the next treatment.
In the meantime, you can apply a warm compress to the affected area or continue using the cream you are using. You can also take paracetamol to relieve worsening pain.
Hope this information is useful.
