The Chest Feels Depressed When Experiencing Shocks?
why yes when I drive (if there are bump bumps) or when I go down the stairs, my chest feels pressure? This feeling emerged last week
Hello Akbrayy, thank you for asking.
When someone experiences a shock, the body will automatically contract muscles to maintain posture. Likewise, when you go down the stairs, the muscles of the body will contract to maintain balance. In addition, when shaken, the stomach contents will experience movement that pushes the chest cavity. The contraction of the body muscles, especially the abdominal muscles and the urge to fill the contents of the abdominal cavity, can cause a sense of pressure on the chest.
Generally the feeling of pressure in the chest is not realized. However, if there are conditions such as gastric or esophageal problems, one can feel pressure on the chest. Problems with the stomach such as gastritis, peptic ulcers, or GERD, problems with the esophagus such as esophagitis, may cause symptoms like you feel. Besides the disruption in lung tissue or liver tissue, can also cause similar symptoms.
Check with your internal medicine doctor to find out more about the cause. The doctor may need to do an abdominal ultrasound, chest X-ray, or examination of blood samples in the laboratory. The treatment will be adjusted to the cause found. If indeed the problem comes from the stomach, then the doctor will give medicine to treat stomach inflammation.
Thus short information from me. Hopefully can help. Regards.
