Hello Angel ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Complaints of pain in the chest should be considered further whether the pain is felt spread or not, accompanied by palpitations and shortness of breath or not and whether chest pain appears during activity or not. Chest pain itself is a condition where the chest feels like stressed, pricked and sore. The cause of chest pain can be caused by several things such as:
- Heart: can be due to blocked blood vessels to the heart, cardiomyopathy, myocarditis, pericarditis and even aortic dissection can cause chest pain
- Lung: blockage of blood vessels in the lungs, inflammation of the lining of the lungs, pulmonary hypertension, new abscesses and atelectasis or lung collapse can cause chest pain
- Indigestion: in gerd there are also complaints of chest pain and throat feels prop. Inflammation of the pancreas and gallbladder also has similar complaints such as chest pain
- Muscle and chest bone disorders: inflammation of the bones connecting the ribs and sternum, broken ribs
Another condition that can have complaints of chest pain is panic attacks, and in cases that have recently developed rapidly in various countries namely covid-19. In addition to complaints of fever (temperature more than 38 degrees Celsius), coughing, runny nose, to the severe, namely shortness of breath. because the symptoms of the virus are not so typical then if you have one of the complaints above accompanied by a history of contact with people who are exposed to the virus or with people with monitoring or the area you live in is a pandemic area, you should do social distancing or isolate yourself independently during 14 days because the incubation period of the virus is 2-14 days from exposure to the virus, while isolating yourself you should also improve your body's immunity so that complaints get better such as taking vitamins, taking medication according to the symptoms complained of and in accordance with doctor's advice, resting enough, enough water needs so as not to dehydrate, eat nutritious food.
In situations where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so that you are not exposed to the virus, if there are complaints such as sore throat that gets worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by fever more than 38 degrees Celsius, coughs, colds that do not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though you have tried to take medication, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further examination.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
