Feeling tense and painful in the area of the arm up to the chest can indeed occur one of them due to fatigue when using excessive muscle (overuse). This condition is prone to occur in people whose daily activities often involve arm and chest muscles, rarely exercise, often lift heavy loads, lack of rest, elderly, and experience a lack of neurotropic vitamins or minerals. Tension and pain that arises due to this condition can occur in mild, moderate, to severe intensities. In mild conditions, often, complaints can improve on their own without the need for serious treatment.
Not only overuse, it could also be, tension and pain in the arm to the chest that you experience arises due to other causes, for example fibromyalgia, nerve nerve, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, stroke, post herpetic neuralgia, tendonitis, internal organ disorders, for example lymphadenitis, pleurisy, bronchitis, pneumonia, heart attack, gastritis, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
Need to be clarified beforehand, besides tension and pain, are there any other complaints that you feel, for example fever, numbness, weakness, numbness, nausea, vomiting, tightness, coughing, and so on? How much does this tension and pain affect your daily activities?
If the complaints that appear are very severe or appear accompanied by other complaints that are more severe as mentioned above, we recommend that you consult a doctor or neurologist. A variety of supporting tests, for example X-rays, heart records, laboratory tests, CT scans, etc. can be done by doctors if deemed necessary so that your complaints can be handled on target.
Meanwhile, reduce the tension and pain first by compressing the area of your arm to your chest using warm water. Avoid massaging or excessive massage of areas of your body that feel uncomfortable. So that activities are not disturbed, wear loose and comfortable clothing. Expand to rest, also take time to exercise at least 3 to 5 times a week. Finally, if your complaint still does not improve, before seeing a doctor, you can first apply pain relief cream on the arm area to your chest that feels tense and painful.
