Overcoming Discomfort In The Chest Accompanied By Heavy Breathing And Lumps In The Throat?
Hello doctor. I am 19 years 6 months old. Last year I was diagnosed with bronchitis. Several times had relapsed and better. Since mid-December I have had quite a cold, every time I wake up I especially have difficulty breathing because my nose is full of mucus. It’s been almost a week that my condition has improved even though I still have complaints when I wake up but it usually improves after a few hours later. But now there is a discomfort in my chest and throat that makes me often take a deep breath and cough to relieve it. But over time I felt dizzy and nauseous. What’s the solution?
Hello Aisy, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Discomfort in the chest, can be caused by various things, namely:
- Disorders of the digestive tract. Such as stomach acid / GERD, gastritis, etc. In sufferers of digestive tract disorders, generally accompanied by complaints of nausea, shortness of breath, discomfort in the chest, headache, pain in the gut, etc.
- Disorders of the respiratory system. Such as bronchitis, tuberculosis, pneumonia, etc.
- chest injury. Can be due to heavy physical activity, long cough, etc.
- and others.
Here are things you can do at home: eat regularly, reduce spicy and acidic foods, manage stress well, consume enough water, increase fruit and vegetable consumption, exercise regularly, avoid smoking, and avoid alcohol consumption.
If the complaint does not improve, you should do a direct examination with a doctor. So that you can be interviewed and carried out several checks to find out the cause of the complaint you feel.
Thank you, hope that helps.
