Overcoming The Feeling Of Tightness That Often Appears Suddenly?
lately my breathing feels heavy, I don’t cough, I don’t have a fever, I don’t have a cold either. I have a history of asthma from grandma. Previously I rarely experienced shortness of breath. But lately almost every day. I try to consume cow’s milk, kammbing milk, honey, for medicine I use salbutamol to buy at the pharmacy. How so that the tightness does not occur every day, I haven’t had time to check it
Thank you for the question.
Having close descendants who suffer from asthma can indeed increase your risk for also having asthma. Not only shortness, asthma can also cause you to experience coughing, wheezing, sleep disturbance, palpitations, and many other complaints. Typically, this asthma attack will recur when you are exposed to air substances (such as dust, smoke, cold, pollen, animal hair, herbal spores), when you experience stress (both physical and psychological), when you have an infection (especially respiratory infections ), or when you consume certain types of drugs and foods.
In addition to asthma, many other medical conditions can also make you short of breath, such as bronchitis, pleural effusion, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, allergies, gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, congestive heart failure, psychosomatic disorders, panic attacks, specific phobias, and so on.
This tightness, if it feels very heavy and lasts long, should not be treated haphazardly. Not all tightness occurs due to narrowing and trade in the airway. Therefore, consumption of bronchhodilators (such as salbutamol) is not always able to overcome your condition.
Better, you consult yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine in order to be evaluated more deeply the possible causes of your complaint, namely by physical examination, x-rays, lung function tests, or maybe other supporting tests. At home, rather than carelessly taking medicine, you better do it first:
Warm compresses on your tight chest Rest more, position your chest and head higher Avoid triggers of asthma attacks (as mentioned above) Don't smoke, stay away from smoke also Eat more regularly, small portions, reduce consumption of foods and drinks first Contains gas (for example mustard greens, cabbage, tubers, soda, tea, coffee, coconut milk, fried foods, sauces) Regularly exercise every day Set your breath well, do not panic or worry too much. Hope it helps yes ..
