Top 6 Homeopathic Medicines For Chest Pain Due To Gas

Chest pain can occur from several reasons and one among these could be gas. Chest pain due to gas is quite common. Gas in the chest feels like tightness in the chest and other symptoms that might occur include burping, passing gas, reduction in appetite, indigestion, pain in the abdomen in various parts and nausea. Chest pain from gas can occur from various causes. It can simply arise from swallowing air, intake of carbonated drinks like soda, intake of excessive fiber in diet, artificial sweeteners, and use of certain medicines or supplements. In other cases, it can result from some medical condition. These conditions include gallbladder issues, food poisoning, food intolerance, food allergy, GERD, IBS, and Crohn’s disease. Among these,  gallbladder issues include gallbladder inflammation (cholecystitis) and gallstones. These conditions are explained further. Food poisoning also called food-borne illness refers to gastric conditions arising from consuming contaminated food or drink. Food intolerance indicates intolerance to digest certain types of foods due to sensitivity of the gut to these foods. For example, lactose intolerance in which a person is unable to digest lactose which is a sugar present in the milk due to a lack of lactase enzyme in the body.

Food allergy means a condition in which the body gives exaggerated immune responses to certain foods like egg, milk, wheat, etc. GERD is gastroesophageal reflux disease in which there is backflow of the stomach acid into the food pipe. It occurs due to defective functioning of the LES i.e. lower esophageal sphincter which is a muscle ring at the area where the lowest part of food pipe joins with stomach and that normally functions to prevent back flow of the stomach acid upwards in the food pipe. IBS refers to irritable bowel syndrome which is a functional disorder of the colon i.e. the large intestine that results in symptoms including diarrhea, constipation or alternate diarrhea and constipation, gas, bloating in the abdomen and cramps / pain in the abdomen. Crohn’s disease is an autoimmune condition in which inflammation may occur in any part of the GIT (gastrointestinal tract). Crohn’s disease is one of the two conditions included in IBD i.e. inflammatory bowel disease, the other condition being ulcerative colitis.

Is the chest pain due to gas or is it heart pain?

Pain in the chest from gas may mimic pain from heart problems like heart attack and it may become difficult to differentiate between these two. But certain points help in differentiating these two. In case, chest pain is accompanied by symptoms such as gas in the abdomen, heartburn, abdomen pain then it usually suggests that the pain is occurring due to gas. There are some features indicating that it is arising from a heart attack. These include pain in the chest like an intense pressure on the chest in the center or left side of chest; severe stabbing sort of chest pain; pain from the chest radiating to shoulders, arms, neck, back or the jaw; shortness of breath; dizziness, excessive sweating and feeling nauseated. In case such symptoms appear suggesting chest pain from heart attack, immediate medical help should be taken. It is advised that one should always watch symptoms of chest pain very carefully and hurry to a doctor in case even a slight doubt occurs and the condition seems serious or when one is not sure or confused about the cause.
