Lumbago When A Cough That Never Heals?
Hello. I want to ask. My father has been coughing for a long time. And it was only recently when my father coughed, around the lumbar bone in the middle he felt intense pain. And when he doesn’t cough, his waist doesn’t hurt much. I guess that’s the u0026ntilde; what huh? And how is the treatment? Please answer. thank you
Good evening, thanks for the question
When experiencing a chronic cough or cough that has been ongoing, there is an increase in pressure in the chest cavity and also the abdominal cavity. In such conditions it is possible to cause complaints of pain in the chest, abdomen, or waist, but when not coughing, the pain complaints will be reduced.
For treatment, treatment is needed to overcome the cough and the cause of the cough itself. Antitussive medications or cough suppressants may be needed to treat the complaint. In addition, treatment based on the cause is absolutely necessary so that the symptoms of coughing can really disappear. Causes of long-standing cough include TB infection, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, and so on.
Carry out further consultations with your doctor for a direct physical examination to determine the cause of the old cough and its treatment accordingly.
That's all, hope you can help.
