Ali Melati,

Thank you for asking at

Shortness of breath complaints occur due to various possible causes. Usually complaints are accompanied by discomfort in the area around the chest. Complaints can also be accompanied by other complaints such as coughing, chest pain, and so on.

Some causes of complaints of shortness of breath include:

Disorders of the airways such as infections of the lungs caused by bacteria (tuberculosis, pneumonia) or viruses (influenza, common cold), chronic diseases (COPD and asthma), malignancy (lung tumors)
Disorders of the heart such as heart failure, congenital heart disease, coronary heart disease
Gastrointestinal disorders such as GERD
Trauma to the chest area
Certain psychic conditions such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression
Irritation for example due to cigarette smoke, vehicle smoke, and so on

To determine the exact cause of the examination must be carried out starting from a medical interview, physical examination, to additional examinations. That way the cause can be known and the handling will be more directed and precise.

For that you can do a few things:

Keep the diet
Regular exercise
Get enough rest
Drink enough water
Avoid sparking complaints
Avoid excessive physical activity
If complaints arise immediately sit or lie down to rest
Do not carelessly use drugs without a doctor's prescription

If complaints can be overcome by handling at home, you are advised to postpone seeing a doctor and stay at home. But if the complaint is felt to be ongoing or burdensome to the doctor immediately to get further treatment. Wear a mask when visiting a doctor and avoid using public transportation. Keep your distance from people around you at least 1m and regularly wash your hands. All of this was done in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that is happening right now.

So, hopefully useful. Keep healthy, okay?
