Hello Evi Alfa Kholidah, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Some things that can be the cause of your complaint among others:
Gastric acid disease GERD Dyspepsia Injury to muscles around the chest Gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and intestines) Heart disease (angina pectoris, arrhythmias) Pain in the chest can be caused by increased stomach acid, diseases of the heart, or constituent tissue of the chest such as bone, muscle, or other tissue. But in order to help your complaints, the doctor needs some additional information about your complaints, such as whether you have a history of heartburn, how old are you, whether you have a history of heart disease, diabetes or cholesterol, whether there are complaints of a bitter mouth, burning chest, pain in uluhati, nausea, or fever.
To determine the exact cause of your complaint, you should be able to consult a general practitioner or specialist in internal medicine. Your doctor needs a direct physical examination or advise you to do a supporting examination in accordance with indications such as a heart record (ECG), X-ray, CT scan or endoscopy in order to find the cause of your disease.
