Remember childhood days spent blowing bubbles that formed rainbow colors, trying to burst out each other’s bubbles and having fun trying to make the soapy liquid that doesn’t turn out as good as the store-bought one howsoever it is prepared? Some individuals feel as if a bubble is going to burst in their chest and this condition is associated with a variety of illnesses. Most common causes of a bubbling feeling in the chest include:
Atrial fibrillation: Here the heartbeat is faster and abnormal as the upper chambers of the heart are not synched with the lower chambers. Common symptoms include dizziness, chest pain, breathlessness, tiredness, weakness and heart palpitation. Atrial fibrillation is not life threatening, but it can result in blood clots in the heart.
Bronchitis: The bronchial tubes that connect lungs to the mouth and nose are inflamed. It might be for a couple of days or even last for months together with symptoms such as chills, fever, cough and tightness in the chest. While acute bronchitis fades away in 10-14 days and treatment is similar to that of cold chronic bronchitis requires the use of inhalers and oxygen therapy.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): Stomach acid travels to the food pipe due to unhealthy lifestyle practices such as excessive consumption of alcohol and frequent use of medicines such as aspirin. A bubbling feeling in the chest, sore throat, chest pain, cough, swallowing difficulty, heartburn and sour taste in the mouth (due to stomach acid travelling to the food pipe) are common symptoms.
Indigestion: Also called as dyspepsia, indigestion is discomfort in the upper abdomen that causes a bubbling sensation in the chest and an awkward feeling in the abdomen every time after eating. Heartburn and nausea are also common symptoms. Indigestion is usually the result of eating spicy or fatty food, eating too quickly, drinking too much alcohol, consuming caffeine frequently or taking certain medications. Dietary interventions and lifestyle changes are the proposed treatment options for indigestion. For healthy lifestyle changes please get in touch with reputed dietitian nutritionists at www.firsteatright.com who can help you with meal plans and lifestyle changes that keep you fitter and better.
Asthma: A bubbling sensation in the chest is commonly experienced by people with asthma along with other symptoms such as shortness of breath, coughing and tightness in the chest. Allergies and weather conditions too trigger asthma whose main treatment methods include lifestyle interventions and medications.
Pleural effusion: This is often a sign of an underlying condition such as cancer, congestive heart failure, chest injury or pneumonia happening when there is fluid trapped between the lung lining and chest wall. Bubbling of the chest and shortness of breath are common symptoms.
Precordial catch syndrome: Nerves in the chest are pinched or squeezed and this condition is commonly present in children, adolescents and individuals in their early 20s. A sudden bubbling sensation or chest pain are common symptoms that fade away and disappear with age.
Heart attack, anxiety and stress are also common causes for a bubbling feeling in the chest.
Time for the Doc
As simple a problem such as indigestion could cause a bubbling feeling, but it could also be the result of complex problems such as tumor or a collapsed lung. It is time to meet the doc when you experience symptoms such as high fever, irregular pulse, abdominal pain, vomiting, a forceful pain that spreads to the face and neck, numbness in the arm and failure to stand or walk properly.
