Is It Dangerous To Still Feel Back Pain And Shortness Of Breath After The Accident 7 Months Ago?
Hello, I had an accident about 7 months ago. I hit my back, and until now the pain still feels sometimes my breath is tight. Is it dangerous?
Does shortness of breath only occur when back pain? Shortness of breath can be a response to the body holding back pain, but if shortness is also felt even though there is no back pain, there is a possibility of shortness of breath caused by other conditions, whether from the lungs, stomach, heart, or psychic.
Complaints of back pain and shortness of breath can be related to a history of collisions on your back. Have you been seen by the doctor after a collision? Apart from the impact, complaints of back pain and shortness of breath can also be caused by several other conditions, including:
Body position is not good, for example when standing, sitting, and sleeping
Clamping of the spinal cord
Pulmonary disorders, eg pleurisy, tuberculosis, pneumonia
Habit of lifting heavy objects
Disorders of the heart, such as heart attacks
To help reduce complaints, you can do the following tips:
Get enough rest
Improve body position, avoid bending
Regular exercise, for example yoga, pilates
Avoid lifting heavy objects
Warm compresses on the painful part
If complaints often recur, it never hurts to consult directly with a doctor so that further tests can be done if necessary with X-rays, MRI, and CT scan to determine the cause of your complaint. If the cause is confirmed, the doctor can give you more appropriate treatment.
Hope it helps you,
