Good morning, thanks for the question
Symptoms of shortness of breath that weighs on the history of smokers it is necessary to suspect a condition called COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. COPD is a chronic disease that causes progressive airway obstruction due to chronic inflammation in the airways due to exposure to harmful gases or airborne particles.
Symptoms of COPD include:
1. Tightness gets heavier in tandem
time passes, or gain weight with activity
2. Shortness that persists throughout the day
3. A long cough that is lost may arise and may cause phlegm
4. History of exposure to risk factors such as cigarette smoke, dust, chemicals in the workplace, or kitchen smoke for a long time
In this clinical suspicion it needs to be confirmed through a direct physical examination by a doctor. Severe tightness needs to be treated immediately because it can cause tissue oxygenation disorders that can damage various organs. Supporting examinations may be needed to help establish the diagnosis, for example examinations to assess lung function including spirometry, blood gas analysis, x-rays, and so on.
Treatment in such cases aims to reduce the rate of severity of the disease, as well as to maintain a stable condition of the disease. Other conditions that have a similar complaint. In your case, for example bronchitis, rhinitis, or pharyngitis that have better healing outcomes than COPD. Therefore, do not hesitate to check your condition with your doctor for future treatment plans.
That's all, hope you can help.
