Fever And Sweating All Night, Cough With Phlegm, Shortness Of Breath And Body Weight Down?
Night, r n r nI am a student in Jakarta, I have a fever every night, sweating all night, cough with phlegm, runny nose, and chest feeling very tight, body weight also started to drop, previously I had X-rays and blood checks, and the results I have chronic bronchitis. r nHowever, after the medicine the doctor gave me, my body has not progressed yet, there were even additional reactions such as the fever earlier, I was afraid there were lab results that were not detected at that time, because almost all day long my breath I feel very tight from the dry cough. r nIs that really a reaction to chronic bronchitis or is it a symptom of TB disease? How long will it take for me to fully recover? Are there other treatments that can be done? And what should I avoid? R n r nThank you very much in advance, and sorry for disturbing the time. 🙏
Hello, Nay Nayah Nayah, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The symptoms you experience can lead to several different causes:
5. Lung mass / tumor
To determine the exact cause, you should check with your doctor again, especially if after good treatment there has been no improvement. In addition to a physical examination, some of these investigations may be needed, for example, complete blood tests, x-rays, sputum analysis, and lung CT scans. Treatment will be adjusted to the cause and severity.
Immediately check, especially if after treatment the doctor shows no improvement, shortness of breath, coughing up blood, the cough gets worse and changes in the color of the sputum, and the weight has decreased without knowing the cause.
In addition to examinations and treatment by a doctor, what you should also do is increase your immunity with adequate rest, adequate nutritional and fluid needs, keep your body and environment clean, diligently wash your hands, have adequate air and light ventilation, wear a mask to avoid disease transmission, avoid smoking / smoke. Drink lots of warm water to relieve coughs.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
