Is It That I Am Allergic To What Is The Allergy (what Disease)?
Ass. I have been coughing for almost 3 months. I coughed with shortness of breath which made my breath sound. I coughed it when I woke up at night, whether it was 2.4 o’clock or in the morning, I definitely coughed and had shortness of breath and my sputum was yellow but the phlegm was crushed, not clumping like where phlegm usually is. I once checked with a pulmonary doctor and the results were nothing, both tuberculosis and asthma, my chest was x-rayed and my back was checked with a deep breath .. then the doctor said I was allergic. If I take medication for shortness of breath and inflammation, thank God I sleep soundly and wake up without difficulty or coughing when I wake up in the middle of the night or morning. What I want to ask, is it that I am allergic to what kind of allergy (what disease) then how do I get rid of it? I am afraid that every night I sleep I have to take drugs for bad effects in the future. Please explain and provide input.
Cough that is accompanied by shortness of breath, wheezing, phlegm, and appears especially at night, can be caused by the following conditions:
Asthma, Bronchitis, bronchiolitis Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Bronchiectasis Pulmonary TB Heart failure Several tests will be needed to determine the correct diagnosis of your complaint. It should be noted, however, that, for a cough caused by asthma, the lung examination while asthma is not relapsing, including X-rays, will not show any abnormalities.
Drug administration will be adjusted to the diagnosis that will be found later. Apart from buying drugs, of course there will be other treatments needed, for example: improving lifestyle, exercise, and others.
Medicines should only be used as directed by your doctor. Long-term use should be discussed again with your doctor. But of course, if the need is deemed more necessary, the doctor will continue to provide these drugs, according to their needs.
Check regularly with your pulmonary doctor. Avoid things that can trigger coughs, for example: cold, certain foods, dust, etc. Do regular exercise, it's better if you do sports that help your breathing get better, for example: swimming, running. Adequate rest can help the body be healthier Avoid smoking Semga can help
