Thank you for the question.
Shortness of breath that feels heavy and short, coughing, sputum bleeding, runny nose, sore throat, hoarseness, and fever up and down most likely indicates that you have an infection in the respiratory tract, for example due to viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms. This infection can not only occur in the lungs (eg pneumonia, tuberculosis), but can also be in other parts of the airways, such as the nose (rhinitis), sinus (sinusitis), throat (pharyngitis), voice box (laryngitis), bronchitis (bronchitis) , etc. In addition to infection, other factors such as allergies, irritation, malignancy, until the entry of foreign objects into the airways can trigger complaints like this. Sometimes, disorders in other organ systems, for example stomach acid reflux, can cause almost similar complaints.
So that your condition is clearly the cause, you need to see yourself directly to a doctor or internist. Most likely, the doctor will not only give you medication, but will also recommend that you undergo a blood test, x-ray, sputum test, or other supporting tests.
At home, you can do first:
Drink more warm water, a minimum of 2-3 liters a day Do not approach substances that may make you allergic, such as cold, dust, animal hair, etc. Use a mask Eat a variety of fruits rich in vitamin C Stay away from cigarettes and smoke Do not use physical activities, including shouting yelling too much Take medicine for paracetamol if you still have a fever and sore throat Compress warm your chest that is not comfortable Hope it helps ..
