Continuous Cough In Cardiomegaly Sufferers?
Excuse me, my mom is about 43 years old experiencing cardiomegaly, I want to ask Is the cough that my mom continues to experience is the cause of cardiomegaly? r nThank you.
Cardiomegaly is a medical term for an enlarged heart. Cardiomegaly can be caused due to various causes such as high blood pressure, cardiomyopathy, coronary heart disease, heart valve disease, arrhythmias.
Usually if cardiomegaly occurs in a long time, then it can cause symptoms of chronic heart failure. Chronic heart failure is a condition where the heart fails to pump enough blood to organs. Chronic heart failure can cause symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath while sleeping, coughing especially at night, swelling in the legs, nausea. If indeed your mother has a cough, especially if coughing more often at night or when lying down, it is likely because of cardiomegaly. If the cough is caused by a heart problem, heart treatment is needed.
But other than that the state of cough that your mother experiences can also be caused by other causes such as:
Side effects of certain drugs
lung infection / pneumonia
therefore, to ascertain the cause of your maternal condition, your mother should be seen directly by a specialist in internal medicine, so the doctor can examine your mother's condition further. Avoid taking any medicine.
