Hi Rizka .. Thank you for the question.
Difficulty breathing due to tightness needs to get attention because the lack of oxygen supply in the body can interfere with body organs, especially vital organs such as the brain and heart. Shortness of breath is described by the chest feels tight, difficult to breathe air, and feels like suffocating. Shortness can be caused by several things, for example:
Shortness due to heartburn - pain accompanied by pain in the pit of the stomach, nausea, stomach feels full, belching, decreased appetite
Disorders of the heart - accompanied by pain in the chest, the pain feels like a heavy weight on the chest and can spread to the arms and left shoulder
Pericardial effusion / accumulation of fluid in the heart lining
lower respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia
If you feel shortness of breath continuously, accompanied by fatigue, interfering with activities, there is chest pain then it is better for you to see a pulmonary specialist to get a direct physical examination and can be carried out supporting examinations such as chest X-rays, spirometry tests, and blood checks. So that it can be known with certainty the cause of your complaint.
While all you have to do is:
Avoid being exposed to smoke exposure, for example smoking smoke, vehicle smoke, firewood smoke
Eat nutritious foods, and avoid foods that are spicy, sour
