Coughing is a body reflex when the respiratory tract is attacked by a foreign object. Cough has a function that is beneficial to the body, especially the respiratory system, because with a cough, foreign objects that enter the respiratory tract can be removed. Likewise with the mucus or fluid in the respiratory tract, if allowed to accumulate and obstruct the airway, therefore coughing is useful for pushing the fluid / mucus trapped in the airways. However, although coughing has a good function for the body, there are times when cough becomes an opponent that must be removed from the body.
Some of the causes of coughing can be caused by:
The presence of foreign objects that enter the airway Viral infections such as colds / cough colds Bacterial infections such as bronchitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis Allergy or Asthma atopy More detailed information related to the description of the complaint you feel is needed. Does the cough are continuous, accompanied by phlegm or not, whether there is a fever before, whether the cough often arises when there is dust, smoke, or is affected by time especially at night / morning, and whether there is swelling in both legs, tightness after walking away or after activity.
Coughing that you experience may be caused by asthma, foreign objects or suspicion toward heart problems. Asthma can cause symptoms of shortness of breath or cough. However, cough due to asthma often appears at the age of children compared to adults. Another possibility is due to the entry of foreign objects in the respiratory tract, so the body responds by causing a cough suddenly. Habits such as smoking or alcohol consumption can also trigger complaints that you feel.
Suspicion toward heart problems is still possible even though complaints of coughing and tightness during sleep / lying down cannot be used as a sure sign of heart problems.
Therefore, ideally a direct examination is carried out by a doctor so that the cause can be known with certainty.
To help reduce your complaints naturally, try to increase the consumption of water so that the throat feels comfortable, avoid smoking and alcohol consumption, avoid allergic triggers if you have a talent toward allergies, regular exercise and implementing a healthy lifestyle. Do not hesitate to do a consultation and examination directly to the doctor if the complaint feels increasingly burdensome.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
