Upper Left Breast Pain?
Good night, I want to ask, I was pregnant just 2 months ago, when I was sleeping, suddenly my left breast was suddenly sick, I thought it was heart disease, no, thank you, ma’am.
Hello Srii Rahayu,
Chest pain due to the heart does often give complaints as left chest pain. But the fact is that there are various causes of left chest pain caused not due to cardiac abnormalities, including:
Disorders of the lungs. Lung infections can cause inflammation of the lungs (pneumonia) or the membranes that wrap the lungs (pleurisy). Symptoms of pulmonary diseases include chest pain on the left which increases when breathing, accompanied by coughing or shortness of breath.
Disorders of the digestive tract. Disorders of the digestive tract such as GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease), in which the contents of the stomach back up the esophagus, make stomach acid irritate the esophagus and cause complaints of heat / pain in the gut to the chest. When a lot of gas accumulates in the digestive tract and gas can push the intestines so that chest pain can arise. This condition is usually accompanied by symptoms of feeling bloated and often belching
Injuries to the chest, such as stretched muscles or compressed nerves can cause left chest pain. Pain due to a depressed nerve can also cause a tingling or numbness in the arm that is similar to a heart attack.
Not only physical disorders, stress can also cause left chest pain. Poor management of stress can cause somatic symptoms, including left chest pain.
Chest pain due to heart disease occurs due to interruption of blood circulation to the heart muscle, which usually results from a blockage. Chest pain due to the heart is a medical emergency and requires immediate medical attention. Chest pain caused by heart abnormalities are generally accompanied by the following typical symptoms:
Chest pain such as pressure, squeezing, and feeling of heaviness in the chest cavity. Not infrequently accompanied by a feeling like pain in the gut.
Pain can be accompanied by spreading to the left arm. The left arm is pricked or numb. The arm can feel weaker or heavier than usual. In addition to the left arm, pain can also spread to the neck and jaw.
Chest pain generally occurs after activity and lasts for 15-20 minutes, although in some cases chest pain can occur at rest or last longer.
Hard to breathe
If you experience chest pain that is typical of heart disease, immediately seek medical help / see a doctor. Although chest pain that you experience is not like heart pain, you should also continue to see a doctor if, the pain does not go away, accompanied by the appearance of a lump in the breast, discoloration of the breast skin, and so on. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
