Heavy Breathing (tightness) Also Belching Whether Covid-19 Symptoms?
hello doc, I want to ask, before I was a bit insensitive / lack of understanding of the symptoms that I felt, but for the last few days I felt a bit heavy like there was something holding in my chest if I breathed, maybe I was catching a cold too, because it was quite frequent burping if I after the burping was a bit relieved so my breath but sometimes heavy again not sure anyway doc, but I have no symptoms of hot cold cough, but when it was burping like a feeling of vomiting but could not, hold it in the throat, why is that why doc? Is it included in covid-19 symptoms? thanks doc
Thank you for the question.
Discomfort when breathing is indeed not only caused by COVID-19 (a disease due to Corona virus infection). If this complaint appears accompanied by frequent belching and nausea, then your complaint is far more likely to arise due to digestive disorders, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, food allergies, cholangitis, intestinal obstruction, inflammation of the intestine, pancreatitis, gallstones, gastrointestinal infections, benign tumors or benign tumors fierce, and so on. Consumption of several types of food (such as chili, sauce, coconut milk, fried foods, high-fiber vegetables, and sour fruit), drinks (such as tea, coffee, soda, alcohol), and drugs (such as antibiotics, anti-pain, anti-inflammatory) in some sensitive people can trigger complaints like you are experiencing right now.
Our advice, do not you panic. Do not also rush to see a doctor, especially in the midst of the outbreak of COVID-19 today. Worried, your risk of contracting the disease will be even greater later.
To improve, do it first:
Never consume food, drinks, and drugs that can trigger complaints (as mentioned above)
Don't eat too late
Don't lie down right after eating
Chest warm compresses that feel uncomfortable
Not too anxious or stressed
Drink plenty of warm water
If in a long time your complaint does not also improve, or if you appear shortness, vomiting, severe abdominal pain, difficulty in defecating, fever for more than 3 days, and other complaints that are more severe, try to see yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of the disease in order to carry out further evaluation and treatment ...
I hope this helps.
