Left Chest Pain When Taking Deep Breaths Accompanied By Coughing?
Evening, I want to ask. In the last 2 months I have had a cough (itchy cough) for about 1 month. Then a month after that my cough subsided. And now my cough has recurred, it’s been around 2 weeks. And lately I felt left chest pain when I took a deep breath. What do you think my condition is like? (I’m 18 years old)
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The cough that you had 2 months ago and which you are experiencing now could be a recurring similar condition, and it could also be a completely different and unrelated condition. Among the possibilities are:
Bronchitis Inflammation of the lining of the lung or pleurisy Pneumonia disease Infection tuberculosis Asthma Allergy Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Viral infection
So it is not possible to determine what condition you are experiencing just based on cough information alone, without any information whether the cough is dry or with phlegm, whether 2 weeks is really non-stop or there is a break for several days, whether only at night or throughout the day, is accompanied by tightness and so on. Therefore, our suggestion is that you check with a general practitioner or pulmonary doctor for a history, physical examination and support such as blood tests and X-rays to determine the tendency. The treatment you will receive later depends on the results of this examination, but generally in the form of oral medicine.
Meanwhile, multiply the consumption of warm drinks, you can also mix it with honey and lemon, avoid cigarette smoke, pollution and dust, limit strenuous physical activity, take regular breaks, avoid stress, eat high nutritious foods such as vegetables and fruit, and comply with recommendations. your doctor. So, hopefully it answers your question.
