Causes Of Dry Cough Accompanied By Shortness Of Breath And Shortness Of Breath
I am a 24-year-old man, almost 2 weeks now I feel a dry cough and pain in the right chest and shortness of breath, I have a history of bronchitis, asthma and tuberculosis, initially CMN a few minutes a day, but the more here the more frequent chest pain and shortness of breath Initially, I was afraid of pneumonia or other pulmonary diseases since I have a long record of lung disease, but just in case I have been quarantine for several days for fear of being a corona symptom, what input should I do with the present condition? what to eat or do. or should I just go to a doctor? but seeing my young age so far I haven’t seen a doctor because I think I am still physically and mentally strong u003cbr / u003 Apart from the three symptoms above, I have no other symptoms of appetite, body heat etc. are normal, and I am also not smokers and minimal contact with other people this month because I resigned from my job in the IT field so I spent more time at home.
Hello Azmi, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Responding to the story you are telling, I really appreciate the actions you take, you are very understanding and have good self-awareness in dealing with covid-19 infection yourself. Based on your complaints about coughing for almost 2 weeks, right chest pain, and shortness of breath can be caused by various lung diseases. These complaints are very common and can occur in various diseases in the lung. For that, my advice to you is that you can consult a doctor, remembering complaints that you have felt for a long time, and continue to do self-isolating, and physical distancing. Conditions such as TB relapse, pneumonia, bronchitis can happen to you at this time. For corona infections at this time anyone can be attacked especially in areas that have been found cases of infection, so it is difficult to guess the history of contact that occurs even if you rarely leave the house. After being examined and the doctor determines your diagnosis, ask whether you need to go to the hospital or just simply isolate yourself and take medication from the doctor. If it improves with the drug, we can be sure it is not covid-19 infection.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
