Thanks for the question. Has your mother been to the doctor? Shortness of breath can be caused by various health conditions that should not be underestimated. The following are some of the causes of shortness of breath:
respiratory tract infection
infections of the lungs: pneumonia, tuberculosis
stomach acid disease
How is your mother's blood pressure so far? Does your mother take antihypertensive medication regularly? A person who has a history of hypertension with complaints of shortness of breath and heartburn at this time should immediately consult a doctor, because hypertension whose blood pressure is not well controlled can cause further complications to the heart and kidneys. To determine the cause of your mother's complaints, please advise your mother to immediately consult a doctor first. The doctor needs to ask your mother's complaints further and know your mother's medical history. Doctors also need to do a physical examination and carry out supporting examinations such as blood tests, X-rays, ECG, and echocardiography to find out the cause. The next treatment will be determined by the doctor after knowing the cause. Don't delay consulting a doctor.
Advise your mother not to do too much activity. Also improve your diet by consuming more nutritious foods.
