Symptoms Of The Disease?
I am a student who is just about to enter the age of 17 this year. But I often feel pain in the chest and sometimes I feel pain under the breasts or to be precise in the ribs, if I get hit (pain in the ribs) again sometimes I can’t move. Do you think this is a symptom of what disease? And also what causes it? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the chest area (ribs, under the breasts) that is so severe that it causes limited movement can be experienced by anyone, including people who are still young like you. This pain often occurs due to muscle pain (myalgia) which is caused by daily movements that are not done with the right posture, for example if you are too often sitting hunched over, sleeping on your stomach, sitting leaning on one side of your body for a long time, and so on. . Deficiency of certain electrolytes and vitamins, lack of exercise, hormonal changes (for example, just before menstruation), viral or bacterial infections, stress, and various other factors can also aggravate this muscle pain.
In addition to muscle pain, the pain you feel can also come from other triggers, such as pleurisy (inflammation of the lining of the lungs), bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi), dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), cholangitis (inflammation of the bile), pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma ), rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints), heart attacks, scoliosis, kyphosis, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
How long, exactly, have you had this pain? Do you also feel short of breath, vomiting, fever, or other complaints? Exactly what part of the chest is painful? Is there a history of certain diseases that you suffered from before?
Judging from your complaint, it's possible that the pain you feel is quite intense, so you need to go to a doctor directly so you can find the cause. If it is felt that a physical examination alone is not sufficient to describe the cause of your complaint, the doctor can also perform further tests, such as X-rays, heart records, ultrasound, and so on.
Currently, you can first compress your sore chest with warm water. Don't overextend the painful chest area, and don't overdo it either. Always wear clothes that are comfortable and not tight. Stay away from stress, eat more regularly, and get plenty of exercise so that the pain doesn't get worse.
Hope it helps ..
