Afternoon. I am 23 years old. It’s been almost a month that I have had a dry cough, my breath feels heavy, my body is weak, sometimes it gets chills too. I’ve checked before, but the doctor did not give a definite explanation. R nBarangkalai there is a solution for me.
Good morning Aldi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The symptoms of dry cough, heavy breath, weakness and chills that you feel can occur due to various things, and they may or may not be related to one another. Among the possibilities are:
Bacterial or fungal viral infections of the respiratory tract
Buildup of fluid in the lung cavity
Inflammation of the lining of the lung
Low red blood cell levels
In which case it is necessary to do a direct examination to be able to find out what condition you are actually experiencing. Our advice, if the focus of your complaint is more on respiratory problems in the form of coughing and heavy breathing, have your condition checked by a pulmonary doctor, to do a history dig, physical examination and support in the form of CT scans, X-rays or blood tests. If you don't get better in that one session, then go back to your pulmonologist for an evaluation in the form of adding drugs, changing types of drugs or the like. Some ailments are similar and should be observed to determine trends so don't feel discouraged if your treatment doesn't have an immediate effect.
Meanwhile, multiply the consumption of drinking warm water, avoid cigarette smoke, dust and pollution, eat more vegetables and fruit, take regular breaks, avoid too cold air, and also avoid stress. So, hopefully it answers your question.
