Pain In The Chest And Throat Are The Symptoms Of Corona?
Doc, I’m a 19-year-old teenager studying in Yogyakarta. 2 days I sometimes feel a sore throat and feel mild pain in the chest area but do not feel the difficulty breathing. 6 days ago there were also symptoms of nasal congestion but not until a cold. Are these symptoms of corona?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
In a situation like this, there is indeed a sense of concern about the complaints that are felt, especially the rapid development of the corona virus and symptoms that are almost similar to the flu virus in general. Complaints such as sore throat, chest pain and colds that you feel can indeed be felt by anyone, can be caused by viruses, or because of fatigue so that the body's immunity is low. If exposed to a mild virus, complaints will arise on days 1-3 after you have been exposed to the virus from other people, and will disappear if your immunity is well followed by a healthy lifestyle. Complaints can also be accompanied by nasal congestion, sneezing, fever, dizziness and cough.
Some things you can do for your complaints are: get enough rest, meet your body's fluid needs by drinking 2L of water per day, apply social distancing if you experience complaints of cough, runny nose, fever, and also avoid people who have similar complaints, use it mask when leaving the house to prevent the spread of the virus, do not touch the face area (eyes, nose, mouth) if you have not washed your hands first, eat nutritious food and take vitamins that can increase body immunity, take drugs according to your complaints and according instructions for use of these drugs, do not take drugs other than from a pharmacy or doctor.
If you feel that you are not in contact or exposed to people with monitoring status or people under surveillance, but have similar complaints with the virus, you can adopt a healthy life as I explained above. In corona virus, the incubation period of the virus is 14 days, if during 14 days there are complaints such as sore throat that feels worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by fever of more than 38 degrees Celsius, cough, colds that do not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficult to breathe, even though you have tried to take medicine, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further tests.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
