Shortness of breath is a complaint that often interferes with daily life. Some causes of shortness of breath, including:
Disorders of the respiratory tract and organs: asthma, lung infections such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, pleural effusion, etc. Disorders of the heart: heart failure Blood disorders such as anemia Disorders of the digestive tract such as GERD (gastroesophageal reflux) Psychosomatic disorders due to anxiety or panic Disorders of the muscles of the muscles Autoimmune disorders While nosebleeds are bleeding from the nose that often occurs at the age of children and adults. The causes are various, including trauma when picking your nose like picking your nose, trauma due to collision with other blunt objects, sneezing too loudly, air temperature tends to dry, infection, the influence of drugs, blood clotting disorders, to cancer.
Inside the nose, there is a collection of blood vessels called the Kiesselbach plexus which is easily brittle when exposed to minor trauma. If broken, will cause anterior nosebleeds. Whereas if a nosebleeds occur in the nose / posterior nose, it generally occurs due to a certain disease such as high blood pressure, cancer, and abnormalities in the other inner nose.
Regarding your question, there is no medical diagnosis related to PPS thorax. Thorax is a medical term that indicates the chest area, and various organs and tissues in the chest cavity. The information you might get refers to abnormalities that occur in the chest cavity such as the heart, lungs, respiratory muscles, lymph nodes, upper digestive tract, etc.
Nosebleeds and tightness can be interconnected and are commonly found in patients with heart problems. Hypertensive heart disease, heart rhythm disorders, the use of drugs in blood thinners can trigger nosebleeds. Repeated nosebleeds with shortness of breath, weight loss, frequent weakness, etc. can be a sign of early symptoms of cancer.
Therefore, to find out the exact cause, more complete information related to complaints, physical examination and supporting examinations such as chest x-ray, heart record, cardiac ultrasound, CT scan and complete blood examination are needed. I suggest that you check the condition of your friends to the nearest doctor or to a specialist in internal medicine to get a thorough evaluation and consideration of appropriate therapy.
The following things can help your friend to reduce complaints, including:
Not doing strenuous activities If the shortness recurs, do rest and sit / lie with head higher position Lie down or sleep with a high pillow Increase the consumption of water Avoid the triggers of tightness when there Pressing the nostrils more or less for 10 -15 minutes, with the body upright or can lean forward. Give a cold compress around the nose. If it's still bleeding, repress it. Avoid foods that can cause disturbances in the stomach / stimulate stomach acid production Eat food in small portions but frequent frequency If necessary consumption of shortness relievers. Consult your complaints with your nearest doctor if the complaints don't get better or get worse. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
