3 simple and effective ways to relieve chest pain at home

For obvious reasons, chest pain is a delicate issue — heart attacks and cardiac arrests can be deadly. You need emergency attention in the following scenarios:

  • If your chest pains feel crushing, tight or intense

  • If you suspect you're having a heart attack (or have a history of heart attacks)

  • If you experience persistent shortness of breath alongside chest pains

But when your experience doesn't involve the above situations, your chest pain may be related to:

  • Gas

  • Acid reflux

  • Heartburn

  • Chest pain caused by a bad cough

  • Chest pain caused by heavy smoking

Here are 3 things you can do at home for relief before seeing your Care Specialist:

  1. Take hot drinks: Chamomile tea has a soothing effect that can calm heartburn and acid reflux. Lemon juice and ginger tea are other options that can relieve gas pain, bloating, and indigestion.

  2. Eat some garlic: Garlic is good for heart health and can relieve chest pains. You can chop 5-7 pieces into milk, boil it, drink the milk and chew the pieces.

  3. Use cold packs: Sometimes, muscle pain causes chest pains. By easing your muscles with cold packs, your chest pain will reduce too.
