No Appetite Accompanied By Wanting To Pass Out And Cough?
Excuse me, I want to ask. My father has been around for more than one week, coughing is amazing, according to him there is a feeling like there are ripples on his chest that make him cough continuously. Then his body feels unwell and his appetite is very lacking. He had been taken to a doctor near home, he said that he had an ulcer and cough, so he was given cough and stomach ulcers but healed, antibiotics were also given, whereas according to my father, if he took antibiotics, his body felt weak, so he didn’t dare to take antibiotics anymore. Kmrin has been ready for 3 days but it has not healed its cough. Then go to the usual clinic near home, given again the inflammation drugs, cough, nausea / vomiting and stomach ulcers. However, the cough has not healed, but sometimes the frequency is not very frequent. Like 15 ment – 30 minutes once now. It could have been every 5 minutes. But the cough is great maybe because of the bypass effect, and the ripples are like the normal ripples of a cough, but we don’t feel less in the body, feel no pain in the body. Just not feeling well and no appetite. I wonder why. There were fears of being afraid of having problems with the heart because my father had a history of heart disease, had been bypassed in 2014 where the medicine was taken regularly until now namely hypertension, cholesterol, sugar, heart and blood thinners. There are also hemorrhoids but there is no medicine. Please a doctor’s solution. Because my father is now at the point of sale rather weak and has no appetite. thanks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Coughing can occur due to many possibilities. The most common causes of coughing are infections of the airways, can be viral and bacterial infections (which are more frequent), or fungal and parasitic infections (which are more rare). However, coughing can also occur due to other causes, for example:
atypical bacterial infections (such as tuberculosis) airway irritation (for example due to cigarette smoke, air pollution, certain chemicals inhaled during breathing) asthma or COPD side effects of certain drugs (including side effects of blood pressure-lowering drugs ACE-inhibitors) gastric acid (GERD) pulmonary edema and heart failure pulmonary embolism Looking at your father's disease history, you should take your father to an internal medicine doctor to further evaluate the cause of the cough. It must be ensured beforehand that the cough is not caused by dangerous diseases such as congestive heart failure, pulmonary edema, or pulmonary embolism, and it must also be ensured that the cough is not caused by the use of drugs such as ACE-inhibitors. The examination should not be delayed, especially if your father has shortness of breath also accompanied by coughing.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
