Cough Accompanied By Nausea In Bronchitis Sufferers?
Hello, I said I had bronchitis symptoms, but how come every cough has pain in my stomach and I often feel nauseous. What is the effect of coughing or what?
Hello, Nenk Nonk
Thank you for your question for HealthReplies.com
Coughing is a reflex that can occur suddenly, which aims to help clear the respiratory tract of mucus, irritants, foreign particles and microbes. When coughing, the diaphragm and abdominal muscles are pulled together, so that many cough sufferers complain of stomach pain. If your cough is too strong, the pressure in your stomach will increase and cause nausea.
Bronchitis is inflammation or inflammation of the respiratory tract (bronchi) due to infection. Symptoms of bronchitis include cough with mucus (yellow, gray or green), sore throat, shortness of breath, runny or stuffy nose, chest pain, low-grade fever and feeling tired. The diagnosis of bronchitis is confirmed by history, physical examination, sputum examination, chest X-ray, pulmonary function test or spirometry, and blood tests. In general, bronchitis will heal on its own, consult a General Practitioner or Pulmonologist immediately, if the symptoms get worse, such as a cough that is getting worse, coughing for more than three weeks, fever for more than three days, and coughing up phlegm accompanied by blood.
Some things you can do when you have a cough, namely:
1. Increase consumption of water.
2. Get enough rest
3. Avoid cigarette smoke or stop smoking
We recommend that you consult directly with a General Practitioner or Pulmonary Specialist, so that anamnesis, physical examination, laboratory and supporting examinations can be carried out, and you can get the appropriate treatment.
Thus, hopefully this is useful.
