Coughing And Shortness Of Breath, Accompanied By A Sore Throat?
I want to ask … I was short of breath and cough … then in my throat there was something odd, why … what was the characteristic of the corona … I was afraid of the problem too.
Thank you for the question.
Shortness of breath, coughing, and lumps in the throat can be symptoms of COVID-19 (Corona virus infection), or may not. Indeed, not all sufferers of COVID-19 will have a fever. However, if you obey the government's recommendations to stay at home and improve cleanliness and endurance, never contact with COVID-19 sufferers, nor ever travel or contact with people who have traveled to areas with COVID-19 outbreaks, your risk is really contracting is quite small.
Aside from COVID-19, your complaints can also occur due to other factors, such as asthma, bronchitis, pleural effusion, gastroesophageal reflux disease, pharyngitis, throat cancer, lung cancer, laryngitis, heart problems, rhinosinusitis, excessive anxiety disorders, attacks panic, psychosomatic disorders, drug effects, allergies, and so on.
Our advice, don't be afraid yet. Resolve your complaint first by:
Compress warm chest tightness
Drink plenty of warm water
Eat first food that is easy to swallow, broth, not too spicy, cold, and oily
Stay away from smoke, cigarettes, dust, cold, dry air, pollution, and things that make you allergic
Limit screaming too loudly
Use a mask while still coughing
Not spitting carelessly
Wash your hands thoroughly with running water and soap
Do not carelessly exchange personal belongings with others
If the tightness feels worse, there is a high fever for more than 3 days, or you have a high risk of contracting COVID-19, we recommend that you consult your doctor or doctor of internal medicine directly to get further treatment.
I hope this helps.
