Illustration: Your Chest Feels Stuck?

I am 27 years old. In the morning, my chest feels bad. Like something stuck. And now it’s still there. That’s why? The only complaint is that the chest feels adversely heavy. Normal body temperature. And NOT a cold cough. Help me to be scared, especially the corona outbreak. Nauzubillah

1 Answer:

Thank you Ridwan for asking at

I will try to help answer.

Complaints about the chest, chest feels heavy can be caused by:

Coronary heart disease: disease that occurs in the heart caused by blockages that occur in blood vessels, which in turn will cause obstruction of blood flow to the heart. Symptoms include chest pain such as pressure or squeezing, pain radiating to the arms and back, shortness of breath.

Myocardial infarction: is a sudden decrease in blood flow to the heart. Symptoms include chest pain such as crushed, pain radiating to the hands, tightness, nausea, vomiting.

Pneumothorax: is the presence of air flow in the cavity between the pleura (the lining of the lung) and the lungs, generally caused by a collision. Symptoms include chest pain, tightness.

As for the symptoms of corona virus in general are:

Out of breath
Have a history of traveling to areas affected by corona outbreaks, or making contact with people who have contracted corona

Therefore you are advised to stay home, in order to prevent a wider spread of the corona virus. But if complaints such as severe chest pain, sweating, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, even fainting again, immediately take it to the nearest hospital to get further treatment.

Some things to do at home:

Avoid excessive activity and excessive stress
Avoid fatty foods and fried foods
Control mood and emotions
Enough rest
Increase the consumption of water

Hopefully can help. thanks.
