Sorry I want to ask. before I had been taking TB medicine for 6 months and after that was declared cured. 3 months later, I coughed for 1 month and was declared exposed to tuberculosis again. the difference is, in the past I wasn’t short of breath and often yawned. now I am congested and often yawn. is this normal? thanks.
Hello, good night Bilaidanti ...
Yawning is an automatic body response to fatigue and stress. Yawning can also occur due to seeing other people yawn and experience boredom. However, excessive yawning can be a sign of certain underlying health conditions, such as:
anxiety disorders and depression
heart trouble. Excessive yawning can be related to the Vagus nerve, which travels from the bottom of the brain to the heart and digestion. In some cases, excessive yawning can be a sign of bleeding around the heart, or even a heart attack
stroke. Keep in mind that excessive yawning is not the only symptom of a stroke. The main symptoms of stroke are weakness in one side of the face (unable to smile symmetrically, numbness, eyebrows down), weakness in one side of the arms and legs, difficulty speaking or unclear speech.
multiple sclerosis, a disease that arises due to an error in the body's immune system in recognizing its own nerve protective membrane, so that the body attacks the nerve protective membrane. Disturbed nerve protective membranes are nerve protective membranes in the brain and spinal cord
We need to say that excessive yawning is not the only symptom that the possibilities of the disease we have mentioned above. In other words, if a person experiences excessive yawning, this does not necessarily indicate that the person must have epilepsy, stroke, etc. Yes, it is necessary to dig up other complaints and further tests to ensure this.
Tuberculosis itself does not cause excessive yawning directly. However, tuberculosis can cause shortness of breath in several conditions, especially if there are complications in the form of fluid in the cavity of the membrane that surrounds the lungs. As a result, lung capacity is reduced so that oxygen that enters the lungs and circulated throughout the body is reduced. This lack of oxygen can also trigger yawning. In addition, tuberculosis treatment can have side effects of impaired liver function, where as we have mentioned above, liver disorders can also cause symptoms of excessive yawning. To ensure this, we recommend that you confirm directly with the lung specialist who treats you.
While waiting for the check schedule, suggestions we can provide include:
consumption of nutritious foods (high in protein)
get enough rest with a minimum of 7-8 hours of sleep a day
light exercise regularly
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
