Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Can you tell me apart from the heaviness in the chest do you have sweating? Shortness of breath? pain in the arm or jaw? What is your age and gender?

Actually heaviness in the chest always raises suspicion for heart disease and that is why whenever we hear about heavy chest we advise getting ane EKG done, now given your age this is the least likely possibility however it should be excluded nonetheless. There have been instances where we have seen patients who presented with heart disease and were under 25 years of age that is why a EKg should be done. Now given your other symptoms i think the most likely cause here is that you could have developed an infection of the respiratory tract which has tracked down into the lungs. this would explain the shivering, sweating as well as the shortness of breath along with chest heaviness. This can be a viral infection or an atypical bacterial infection which is much more comm0n in the young. A simple clinical examination where we would listen to your chest along with a simple chest xray would yield a diagnosis. once diagnosed you can be treated with antibiotics like z-pack for a period of 5-7 days.

At the moment i would recommend that you start using OTC ibuprofen at a dose of 400 mg thrice daily BUT DO get this evaluated as shortness of breath and chest heaviness ALWAYS warrant a visit to the ER or urgent care center.

I just want to know how can i sleep well because m not able to sleep flat on my bed? Any suggestions? Any home remedies for now.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
i feel like vomiting but not exactly feel to vomit
Doctor: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Elevate the head of the bed by 30 degrees at the minimum, use OTC prilosec at a dose 10 mg twice daily and also use OTC dramamine which would help with the vomiting.

Home remedies can include

Using chamomile tea which can help with possible underlying acid reflux which can cause these symptoms as well as help with the vomiting

Avoiding caffeine and alcohol

Using peppermint oil

fenugreek tea

1-2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar

But if the symptoms worsen, you should go into the ER, you can try the above remedies to see iuf they can help you
