That’s why huh? Do I have to see a doctor / hospital ??
Thank you for the question.
Shortness of breath is a complaint that often arises and can be caused by many things, and shortness is not only derived from heart complaints. In addition, a chest that feels painful as if a diseased heart does not mean it must come from the heart, because in general a problem with the heart will give symptoms such as chest pain that is comprehensive and not as specific as feeling crushed. Complaints that you feel can be affected by disorders of other organ systems, such as:
Psychological disorders, such as psychosomatic disorders, somatization disorders, and panic disorders. Indigestion (which is usually accompanied by pain in the pit of the stomach), such as gastric acid, dyspepsia syndrome, or stomach ulcers. Disorders of the chest muscles and surrounding structures, such as costochondritis. Heart disorders, such as pulmonary hypertension, heart attacks, or heart failure. In the current epidemic of covid-19, you should avoid going outside the home including to the doctor / hospital to reduce the risk of exposure to infection, unless there are emergency symptoms such as chest pain that is not specific such as being overtaken by a heavy burden, spreading to your arms and back, accompanied by cold sweat and nausea, vomiting until you can't do your daily activities.
Here's what you can do to reduce complaints:
Manage stress well. Perform relaxation techniques if you feel like fainting, by breathing 4 seconds, holding it 4 seconds, and releasing 4 seconds. Talk your complaint to the people closest to you. Adequate nutritional and fluid needs of at least 2-3 liters per day. Eat small but frequent portions, and eat slowly. Avoid lying down after eating. Reducing foods that contain lots of gas, acid, spicy, oils like fried foods and coconut milk, contain soda, and caffeine such as coffee, tea, chocolate. Regular exercise and sleep 7-9 hours per day. Hopefully this information can be useful and hopefully your situation will gradually improve.
