Good night dock, permission for me to ask. I have long had the awkwardness about this pain with the characteristic that is suddenly the middle chest to the left is beating or pounding 1-3 times accompanied by breathlessness. Sometimes my left back hurts. Usually I experience this suddenly. and often when after eating spicy food, not drinking enough, dry throat. I once checked my heart condition, but the results were normal. But I am still worried about this condition, actually I why and what should I do doc? Thank you..
Hello Eta, thank you for asking.
Discomfort in the chest area is often confused. That is because the similarity of symptoms between heart problems, lung disorders, or stomach disorders. Discomfort, feeling full or heavy, palpitations, in the middle of the chest, can be caused by disorders of the stomach or heart. Discomfort can also be felt up to the throat, back, or shoulders.
Generally, if palpitations or pain (sometimes accompanied by tightness) occur during activity, and felt improved with rest, then it is possible that there is interference with the heart. Palpitations, pain, or tightness accompanied by a burning sensation / stabbing in the chest, bloating, nausea, vomiting, sometimes diarrhea, and appear on an empty stomach or precisely when a new stomach is filled, generally associated with stomach disorders.
Initial cardiac screening tests that show normal results, may be able to get rid of the suspicion of heart problems. The appearance of uncomfortable symptoms after eating, and a dry throat, may also direct suspicion to stomach disorders.
There is nothing wrong if you change your diet and your lifestyle becomes healthier. You can do:
Increase consumption of vegetables and fruit.
Drink 2 L water per day.
Avoid cigarettes, caffeine, alcohol.
Choose the type of food that is not too oily and not too acidic.
Rest 7-9 hours a day.
Regular exercise 3-5 times a week for 30 minutes.
Eat small portions but often.
Try not to worry too much because anxious conditions will worsen the symptoms.
Note whether after making improvements to diet and lifestyle, there are improvements or not. If you are still in doubt, you can consult with a cardiologist, after the pandemic ends or if you are in an emergency condition. When your palpitations suddenly increase in weight, accompanied by severe chest pain, nausea, vomiting, cold sweating, fainting, you can contact the nearest hospital emergency room. Try only to go to the health care center only when absolutely necessary, wear a mask, wash your hands, avoid physical contact with others, and do not touch your face.
Hopefully this information can be useful. Regards.
