Normal Oxygen Levels But Difficulty Breathing?
Want to ask? This is my oxygen level when checked 99% normal but I always feel difficulty or tightness when breathing That’s why yes
Hello Alba, Thank you for the question.
Oxygen saturation, on examination with an oxygen saturation device attached to a finger, will be low if there is a severe respiratory system disorder that interferes with the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. If this is still normal, maybe your respiratory system is still mild. However, you need to remember, complaints of shortness of breath can be caused by various health conditions that are not always related to respiratory system disorders. Shortness of breath can be caused by:
asthma chronic obstructive pulmonary disease pneumonia tuberculosis gastric acid disease heart function disorders anxiety disorders If you experience symptoms of heavy shortness of breath (short and fast breathing) or experience symptoms of chest pain, you should please visit the nearest hospital emergency room for immediate examination and treatment by doctor. But if your symptoms are relatively mild, you can still move as usual, you should do independent handling at home given the current corona virus pandemic situation. You can do the following suggestions:
avoid exposure to dust and other air pollution avoid smoking habits avoid allergic triggers if there avoid eating large portions of food should be in small portions but more often avoid lying down after eating sleep with a pillow position rather high manage stress well Hopefully it helps.
