Is Shortness Of Breath A Symptom Of Corona?
my office friend has a lot of coughs and colds when corona cases are rife.
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Shortness of breath on positive conditions infected with corona virus caused by severe pneumonia. Patients will experience breathing difficulties that are very severe and require immediate medical treatment so that generally they will immediately seek medical help in the emergency department. Eventually the condition can end with the use of breathing apparatus or ventilators in the intensive care room.
One of the subjective complaints is shortness of breath often encountered lately in physician practice due to corona virus reporting that causes anxiety in the general public. If during the examination there are no significant symptoms of shortness of breath then it is likely classified as psychosomatic. Psychosomatic is a physical disorder that is suspected to be caused by psychological factors such as stress or excessive anxiety. The cause of the emergence of physical complaints is not known with certainty medically. However, if a physical examination is done generally there are no significant abnormalities accompanied by a history of psychological disorders that are quite dominant. In terms of symptoms that are felt are sometimes not as typical as in the actual disease.
If complaints of respiratory problems such as coughing, runny nose, or sore throat are mild and the patient's condition is fully stable and can still carry out activities as usual, then stay at home and avoid gathering. You are only advised to carry out an examination by a doctor if you have severe shortness of breath or have a clear history of contact with a COVID-19 confirmed patient. Keep thinking positive and reduce excessive anxiety by relaxing your mind to avoid psychosomatic symptoms due to the current pandemic.
That's all, hope you can help.
