Nasal Congestion And Tightness In The Chest.?
For several months now, I feel my nose is clogged like I want to catch a cold, but I am not a doctor and I like tightness, and if I take a deep breath, it can’t be long because I’ve worked in a factory with chemical supplies.
Hello Elva, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com
Nasal congestion can be caused by many possibilities. The following are some of the possible causes of nasal congestion:
upper respiratory tract infections (rhinitis or sinusitis) allergic deviation of the nasal septum or also called bent nose too cold and dry air enlargement of the adenoid glands the presence of foreign bodies in the nose hormonal changes (for example due to pregnancy) nasal polyps side effects of certain tumors in the nose or nasopharyngeal area and many other possible causes To be able to know for certain the cause of the nasal congestion that you are experiencing, it is necessary to examine the nose directly. If indeed this condition has been happening for months, it helps you to check yourself to the ENT doctor so that you can do further evaluation.
Regarding your breath that can not be long, it needs to be seen again what exposure to chemicals occur, because not all chemicals in the factory will affect the airway. A blockage in the nose can also affect breathing that is not as long as you experience. Other diseases such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary atelectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, and so on can also cause breathing that cannot be long and relieved.
For now you can check yourself to the ENT doctor first. If indeed there is a disturbance in your lungs as well, the ENT doctor can also refer you to a pulmonary doctor for further lung examination.
Some things you can do for now:
Avoid smoking and exposure to cigarette smoke and excessive air pollution If your nasal congestion is aggravated by certain triggers, avoid these triggers. Use air humidifiers in your workspace or bedroom when the air feels dry. You can also rinse your nose to help deal with nasal congestion.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
