Morning. R nWhy everytime I drink cold water, when in the middle of the night I am sleeping suddenly I get tight until I can sleep I have to sit in a sitting position. It’s been 1 week I still haven’t recovered, the tightness is only midnight when I sleep until I wake up. When I want to cough there is phlegm a little, but still tight.
The shortness of breath that you experience at night can be caused by various medical conditions including:
Asthma, which is a disease caused by narrowing of the airways due to allergies usually to dust and cold air
Heart problems, for example, in conditions of heart failure
Disorders due to increased stomach acid
Anxiety disorders or panic attacks due to psychological conditions
Because it can be caused by various conditions, it requires direct examination by a doctor. The doctor will perform examinations, especially on the part of your heart and lungs to determine the cause of your tightness complaint. Some additional checks will also be done if needed. Treatment will adjust to the cause and severity of your complaint.
Some things you can do regarding your condition:
Avoid dust and cold conditions especially at night
Use a blanket while sleeping
Eat nutritious foods and get enough rest
Enough fluid intake of at least 2 L / day
If you feel that your complaints are recurring frequently and you are starting to worry, then it's a good idea to visit a doctor to get the right treatment
