Good evening doctor, I want to ask, now one of my houses is coughing. And hot. If I have been a doctor and diagnosed with stomach acid, but why do I always feel the heat in my neck and dry cough, dry too. Am I ok?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Your complaints of coughing and heat or fever may not be caused by stomach acid disease. This is because the symptoms that arise from stomach acid disease only include abdominal pain, chest feeling hot, nausea, bloating, bitter tongue, painful swallowing, aching through the back, and in some people can cause shortness.
So if you complain of coughing and fever, then the possibility of conditions that can occur are asthma, acute respiratory infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, influenza infection, or even corona virus infection. Once again this is only based on the possibility of assessing the symptoms, we can not be certain without checking directly.
As for you being diagnosed with acid reflux disease by a doctor, it could be that you do indeed experience stomach acid and one other disease that we mentioned above. Because it is possible for someone to be infected with influenza and experience stomach acid at the same time. When this happens, your stomach acid symptoms will subside, while the other symptoms of the disease, because at the time of the previous examination has not been detected and has not been treated, it is natural if it is still settled.
Regarding this, our advice is that you should check yourself again by emphasizing the symptoms of cough and fever, so that the doctor immediately thinks that this is not a stomach acid disease. Your doctor may later conduct a physical and supportive examination, and the treatment you will receive later depends on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, the important thing is to take care of your health by minimizing going out of the house except for the important things, multiply consumption of water, fruits and vegetables, consumption of multivitamins and supplements, consumption of warm foods and drinks, bathing and soaking in warm water, and may take over-the-counter cough medicines by reading the rules of use listed. So, hopefully answering your question.
