The Lower Part Of The Breast Hurts?
Hello doctor. I am 19 years old girl. This week, I often feel pain accompanied by a tremor like being wrapped right under my breast. The pain does not last long, only occurs 2-3 seconds. This week, I have experienced it about 3 times a day during the day and night. I guess that’s why? Is there a connection with my ulcer disease? Thank you in advance
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The discomfort that appears in the area under the breasts, namely in the form of pain, trembling, and twisting, can indeed be caused by heartburn.
Heartburn, or in the medical realm it is called dyspepsia syndrome, can occur for obvious reasons, for example gastritis, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastric ulcers, stomach cancer, pancreatitis, cholangitis, or drug side effects. However, in most cases, it is not clear what triggers heartburn (functional dyspepsia) so that comprehensive handling must be carried out by reducing risk factors that often trigger or aggravate complaints. In dyspepsia syndrome, the patient will feel a variety of uncomfortable sensations that are dominant in the middle chest area close to the upper abdomen (gut, epigastrium). This discomfort can appear in the form of pain, tightness, twisting, heat, lumps, phlegm, nausea, bloating, and so on. This discomfort can spread to other areas around the epigastrium, including under the breasts.
However, not only heartburn, pain under the breasts as you feel can also arise due to other factors, for example:
Hormonal changes (in women, usually around the time of menstruation or during early pregnancy)
Myalgia (muscle pain)
Deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals
Pleuritis (inflammation of the lining of the lung)
Mastitis (inflammation of the breast parenchyma)
Skin infections, for example acne, folliculitis, herpes zoster
Rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis due to rheumatism, autoimmune disorders)
Pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma)
Heart attack (a disease that occurs due to disturbances in the coronary blood vessels that supply the heart muscle)
Psychosomatic disorders (a series of physical complaints triggered or exacerbated by psychological stress), and so on
If the complaints have recurred quite often, especially to the point of making you breathless, excessively anxious, vomiting, experiencing sleep disturbances, and unable to carry out normal activities, then you should check your condition directly with a doctor. it can also direct you to undergo x-rays, heart records, ultrasound, blood tests, or endoscopy in order to make a proper working diagnosis.
In the meantime, it's best to get rid of your panic and worry about the pain. Apply a warm compress to the area with warm water or apply an over-the-counter topical pain reliever (such as those containing paracetamol). Wear comfortable clothes, don't put too much pressure on the sore side of the breast. Be diligent in exercising balanced with eating and sleeping regularly.
Hope it helps ..
