Cough Accompanied By Pain When Breathing And Pain In The Neck And Shoulders?
I want to ask, initially I got a sore throat, then coughed but the cough was dry. Already 3 days coughing cough. Then today, my back hurts on my left side, breathing becomes very painful, especially when I want to cough to breathe, it hurts to the left. My shoulder and neck hurt too. And when I was praying for my bow and prostration was very painful. What kind of disease do I think I have?
Hello Nanda Rizkia,
Cough is the body's response to expel when there are foreign objects (dust, germs, etc.) in the respiratory tract. Persistent cough can indicate abnormalities in the respiratory tract or cardiovascular system (heart arteries) or gastric acid irritation in GERD. Cough complaints can be accompanied by other complaints such as:
Hard to breathe
Sweat at night
Chest / back pain can accompany coughing due to the following conditions:
Muscle strains, excessive or forced coughing can cause muscle injury that gives a complaint of pain
Pleuritic pain. Pain due to abnormalities in the pleura, usually pain felt sharply especially in the chest area, heavy when breathing
To make a definitive diagnosis of the cause of cough accompanied by back pain you still have to check yourself directly to the doctor. The simplest investigations that may be done can be X-rays.
To relieve cough, you can take cough medicine that is sold at the counter for a while. Drink warm water with lemon / ginger mixture. Voice rest. Wear a mask when driving or when in a high pollution environment.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
