Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The feeling that is mainly felt in the area of the upper abdomen close to the chest may indicate a mass in that area. However, it is necessary to further identify what exactly this mass is, whether it is a gas, solid mass, liquid, or other. Some of the possible causes for this complaint are as follows:
Dyspepsia (buildup of stomach acid), can be related to improper diet, drug side effects, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), or other medical conditions Intra-abdominal tumors (tumors in the abdominal cavity), such as stomach tumors, liver Pneumothorax (air trapping in the cavity between the lining of the lungs), etc. It could also be that the uncomfortable sensations you feel are actually part of the symptoms of psychosomatic disorders, namely physical complaints that arise or are exacerbated by psychological pressure.
To identify the cause of your complaint, you can visit the doctor directly at the nearest health facility. A physical examination, or also assisted by supporting tests, such as X-rays or ultrasound can be done by doctors to determine the best treatment.
In the meantime, you can first relieve discomfort around your stomach and chest by using a warm compress, while choosing comfortable clothes (not too tight in the stomach and chest area). Get plenty of exercise and stay away from excessive stress. Do not forget, improve your diet, eat with discipline, and reduce foods that have the potential to produce a lot of gas in your digestive tract, for example soda, mustard greens, cabbage, tubers, and caffeine.
Hope this helps ..
