Nasal Congestion Accompanied By Weakness And Dizziness After Coffee Consumption?
Hello, a little story yesterday at 10 am I drink black coffee in the office with an empty stomach / not having breakfast. After drinking coffee, I felt my throat ache like inflammation and continued with a sudden cold on my right nose. At first I thought this only wanted the flu normal, then today I feel weak and dizzy. Until I feel like my flu has gotten worse. Is this normal illness or should I do a doctor’s visit? And what is the cause because I drink coffee? What medicine can I buy at the pharmacy when I feel pain like this?
Hello Fauzi, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Previously, I will try to answer your question, Dr. Rio.
Based on the story you explained, there is actually a mismatch between complaints related to drinking coffee. Coffee itself is acidic, so if someone should drink coffee with a stomach condition that has problems the complaints that will arise are complaints of the digestive tract such as nausea, vomiting, discomfort in the stomach, diarrhea, stomach twists, etc.
The symptoms that you experience can occur because your immune system against germs is decreasing, characterized by weakness, dizziness, etc. Some possibilities that happen to you are:
Common cold. Pharyngitis flu. Common cold is an infection caused by a virus that attacks the upper respiratory tract, such as the nose and throat. Symptoms that are caused are usually very mild and sometimes do not cause significant interference. Symptoms can include nasal congestion, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, itching in the throat, etc. Common cold is usually likened to the flu because the symptoms are similar. But the flu is usually accompanied by fever, aching muscle aches, headache, etc.
In pharyngitis, infection or inflammation occurs in the pharynx. The pharynx is a channel that connects the back of the nose with the back of the mouth. Complaints felt in pharyngitis are discomfort in the throat, painful swallowing, until it is difficult to swallow. The cause of this disease can be caused by viruses and bacteria.
At this time all you can do is:
Get enough rest and eat nutritious foods to restore your body's immunity. Giving a multivitamin can support your immunity. Use a mask, because the virus is easily transmitted through the air. Visit a doctor if the complaints don't go away and get worse in the next few days. A few answers from me, hopefully it helps.
Thank you, good luck always :)
