Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
There is a history of lung disease before and now you often experience shortness of breath complaints, then these two things can trigger complaints of chest pain that you feel. If the lung disease is declared by the doctor to be cured and you have completed treatment for 6 months, then in general, chest pain complaints may be a complication of complaints due to chronic lung disease that you have experienced before.
When you have a chronic lung infection, the effects of this disease can cause lung tissue damage, shortness of breath, chest pain, weight loss, or cause muscle tension in your chest or back area. So after you recover, you should try to increase your stamina and endurance, so that the healing process of this lung infection supports the recovery process of your stamina and physical condition. Some things you can do to help increase your stamina and endurance after lung disease and to prevent complaints of chest pain and tightness are:
1. Get enough rest
2. avoid cigarettes
3. Avoid sleeping late at night
4. sufficient healthy nutrition
5. avoid stress
6. do regular exercise
7. control again according to doctor's orders
By implementing a healthy lifestyle and positive efforts to increase your stamina and endurance, it is hoped that complaints of chest pain and tightness can be prevented.
In addition to the above conditions, several other conditions may also be a trigger for complaints of chest pain and tightness, such as gastric disorders, heart problems, or due to infection, acute respiratory inflammation or muscle tension due to stress or due to physical fatigue. So your guess that this complaint can be triggered by stomach disorders and sleep deprivation can occur.
Therefore, to help determine the exact cause of the complaint you are feeling, you should consult your lung doctor directly for a direct examination and evaluation of your current clinical condition. The doctor can do a physical examination and may plan a supporting examination (blood examination, heart examination, or radiology) to help determine the cause of this complaint. The results of the examination will be a reference for handling your complaint.
If you are often lacking sleep at this time, you should start to avoid this habit. Because this bad habit can affect your stamina and general health. In addition, avoid consuming spicy foods, instant foods and coffee to prevent stomach disorders until you see your doctor.
