Hello Dina,

Thanks for asking

The presence of complaints of chest pain that arises, the first thing to think about, especially if there is left chest pain, is a disturbance in the heart organ. Left chest pain is often associated with a heart attack, the typical complaint that can appear is pain that feels like being stabbed by a heavy object, radiating to the back or to the left hand accompanied by sweating, shortness of breath and cramps in the left hand. However, this condition is an emergency condition and requires immediate treatment. The signs and symptoms that I described just now are quite heavy, but judging by the age and lifestyle of a person who is at risk for heart disease such as smokers, has a history of high blood pressure, diabetes (diabetes) and so on.

However, not all left chest pain indicates interference from the heart organ. Here are some conditions that can be thought to be the cause of left chest pain are as follows:

There is an injury to the left chest muscle There is an injury to the ribs on the left chest or an injury to the breastbone itself. An inflammatory condition of the stomach, also known as gastritis. Repeated heartburn can cause chest pain. Acid reflux disease. The rise of stomach acid from the stomach into the esophagus can cause pain, burning sensation in the chest. There is a costochondritis condition. Inflammation of the ribs and sternum Inflammation of the lining of the lungs, also known as pleurisy. This condition can cause chest pain, especially when breathing in. The presence of interference or inflammation or infection of the lungs. For example in bronchitis. If your complaint is quite worrying, then it never hurts to consult and check directly with a doctor to find out the cause. Whether or not additional examinations such as x-rays or other types of examinations are needed will be adjusted according to the results of your consultation with the doctor so as to anticipate if your complaints may arise in the future.

That's all I can say, hopefully useful.

Regards, dr. Tiwi
