Body Chills Accompanied By Chest Pain When Coughing And Headaches?
I am Ni, I want to ask. My body felt chills and also in the chest. The legs also shivered like rheumatism. Accompanied by a dry cough and pain in the chest. My head hurts sometimes. I have been treated many times but the results are not optimal. How did the doctor think.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Shivering is usually the body's response to increasing heat production. This often happens when you are in a cold temperature environment or when you are wet. Shivering can also indicate certain medical conditions, for example:
Viral or bacterial infections (eg respiratory infections, malaria, flu, urinary tract infections, dengue fever, etc.) Rheumatic fever (a disease caused by an overreaction of the immune system against group A Streptococcus bacterial infection) Anemia (low blood hemoglobin) Hypoglycemia ( low blood sugar) Thyroid gland disorders Symptoms of withdrawal, etc. Your other complaint, namely dry cough, chest pain, and headaches can occur related to respiratory infections, which are one of the causes of shivering. In addition, these complaints can also arise due to other causes, such as GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), congestive heart failure, hypertension (high blood pressure), coronary heart disease, and so on.
If you have frequently sought treatment for your complaints, but there has not been any significant improvement, you should check with your doctor again. Chances are, not only interviews and physical examinations, the doctor will also direct you to undergo blood tests, or other examinations to determine the best treatment for your complaint.
In the meantime, you can first do the initial handling as follows:
Wear comfortable and warm clothes, if necessary, use socks and jackets. Drink plenty of warm water. Adequate rest Do not smoke, consume alcohol and also drugs. Compress the sore chest with warm water. Take paracetamol first to reduce pain in the chest and head and chills. Eat healthy and nutritious food, reduce spicy and greasy food first. Exercise regularly Hopefully this helps ..
