Heaviness and discomfort in chest with acidity problem. Heart problem? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
I am 39 yrs old
Last few days I have been feeling heaviness in the centre of my Chest
I normally have an Acidity problem
I have been taking PAN 40 to reduce it.
THough it seems better, the heaviness still seems to be there
Do you think it could be anything related to heart?
I understand your concern
Heart related concerns do not last this long
They are acute, and mostly always make the patient seek emergency care
In your case,I think it is exacerbation of the Gastritis
Oh ok. That relieves me a bit :-)
Please consider getting it done
You must also follow healthy diet to keep away from acidity
Thanks a ton. Wht type of food should i avoid and what type of food should I have for acidity?
You should avoid spicy, high fat, high oil food
You must drink more and more of water
fortunately i dont drink or smoke
Take mostly vegetables and salads
That is great
how do i distinguis between a heart ailment and acidity?
it is excruciating pain
It will be invariably associated with excessive sweating
Patient can't breathe well most of the times
and the hands will also pain i guess, esp left hand. Am I right?
oh thanks. i think that clarifies my query.
