Hello Erick, Thank you for the question.
Chest pain is included in one of the common symptoms that can occur to anyone. Its causes are quite varied and therefore, more complete information is needed relating to the symptoms of chest pain. Chest pain can be accompanied by symptoms of cough, runny nose, fever, shortness of breath, wheezing, palpitations, excessive sweating, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, belching.
Your chest pain can be caused by:
pleurisy, which is inflammation of the lungs / lining that wraps the lungs
pleural effusion, which is a buildup of fluid in the pleural cavity
chest wall injury
You can do the following suggestions:
do a warm compress on the affected area regularly
taking paracetamol according to the rules of use on the packaging of the drug if the symptoms are quite disturbing pain
get enough rest
manage stress well
If chest pain occurs more frequently and gets worse, especially if accompanied by coughing and high fever, please you immediately consult a general practitioner at the nearest hospital so that the doctor can do an examination on you (including blood testing, X-rays, and CT scans) for look for the cause so that it can provide appropriate treatment. However, if these symptoms are accompanied by heavy shortness of breath that makes it difficult for you to move, please immediately refer you to the emergency room of the nearest hospital so that you can be given the right treatment immediately.
Hopefully this information helps you.
