Cause Of Cough More Than 1 Month?
Good morning, my night was like this, a few months ago I consulted a doctor about the coughs that I had for almost 6 months and the doctor advised the doctor to have an X-ray and check the X-rays and the results were written as active pulmonary tuberculosis and I asked the doctor if I had TB but the doctor’s answer no because my body weight did not go down but the doctor said the possibility of a lung infection because there were spots on my lungs and for almost 2 months I took the doctor’s medicine after 2 months I took the doctor’s medicine and the result was still the same my cough didn’t go away and a few months later I started to feel tightness and chest pain when coughing but coughing I don’t bleed and my body weight still doesn’t go up and doesn’t go down but I often sweat at night and often feel weak and dizzy and I also often forget about the little things that recently happened whether I had tuberculosis lungs? r n r nThank you
Hello, Malanita, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Coughing for more than 2 weeks can be caused by several possible causes:
6. Lung tumor
7. LPRD (laryngo-pharyngeal reflux disease) -> inflammation of the throat due to increased stomach acid up to the throat
To ascertain the cause, it requires complete data collection regarding the patient's complaints, physical examination, as well as the necessary supporting examinations, such as chest x-rays, complete blood tests, to sputum tests. Treatment and treatment will be in accordance with the cause and severity.
Meanwhile, tuberculosis / TBC is a lung infection caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Tuberculosis can attack the lungs and organs outside the lungs, such as the intestines, spine, brain, etc. Pulmonary tuberculosis has frequent symptoms such as: cough for more than 3 weeks, fever / feeling unwell, night sweats, involuntary weight loss, lack of appetite, and the risk is coupled with a history of contact with TB sufferers, living in a large area TB cases with dense settlements and poor light ventilation.
However, still to determine whether you have TB or not you have to go to a doctor directly. What can support the diagnosis of pulmonary TB are chest x-rays, sputum tests, CT-scans, tuberculin tests, and IGRA blood tests.
We recommend that you follow the advice of a doctor who examines you in person because he or she understands your physical condition firsthand. Take medication regularly, control routine as recommended, get adequate rest, and meet daily nutritional and fluid needs. In addition, prevent transmission and protect your respiratory tract with a mask.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
