Hello, I want to ask for 3 days and I feel every night (when I lie down) my chest hurts. At the same time, I was experiencing a dry cough (but there was mucus in my throat) and a little cold and a slight sore throat. However, I did not have a high fever (such as a corona case) and only yesterday I felt achy in my body. Are these symptoms of the corona? But so far I have not traveled far, only my father who did not take a day off and leave the house.

Hello Rika

Thank you for asking at

COVID-19 is a disease caused by a Corona virus infection that attacks the respiratory system. The main symptoms are usually found in the form of fever> 38 degrees Celsius, coughing, and shortness of breath. But other mild symptoms such as nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, to joint and muscle pain can also be found. These symptoms are not typical because they are also found in some respiratory infections due to other viruses. A history of travel to an infected area, a history of contact with a confirmed patient, or living in a local transmission area are considered to establish the possibility of a person experiencing the infection.

Chest pain can occur due to various conditions ranging from problems with the heart or heart problems. In cough conditions, the chest can also feel pain due to the involvement of the chest muscles in coughing.

Some causes of chest pain include:

Heart problems (coronary heart disease, heart attack, myocarditis, pericarditis)
Pulmonary problems (Pleuritis, lung abscess)
Digestive organ problems (GERD, gallstones)
Trauma (broken ribs, bruises on the chest)
Chest muscle pain / myalgia

To determine it certainly needs to be done such as physical examination and additional tests (for example: blood, ECG, chest X-ray, to CT Scan). That way the probable cause is known with certainty and the handling will be more precise and directed.

The following things you can do to resolve your complaint:

Maintain your diet, avoid high-fat foods
Drinking water
Cukuo break
Regular exercise
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol
Avoid excessive physical activity
If chest pain occurs immediately sit / lie down to rest

With the current Corona infection outbreak, it's a good idea to stay home, postpone seeing a doctor, and maximize your home treatment before seeing a doctor, unless there are emergencies such as chest pain radiating to the arms, shoulders and neck, or accompanied by vomiting and sweating cold, or if your chest pain is accompanied by coughing and other respiratory symptoms and you have a history of the foregoing. Do social distancing by keeping a minimum distance of 1m from those around you and keep applying a clean and healthy lifestyle while staying at home. Use a mask when visiting a health facility to consult with a doctor and try not to use public transportation.

That's all, hope it helps.
