Shortness Of Breath?
Hello, it’s been 4 days of fever And suddenly Shortness of breath is this a corona symptom?
Thank you for the question.
Fever and shortness of breath can be part of the symptoms of COVID-19 (a disease due to the new Corona virus 2019), it may or may not. You need to be aware that you are infected with COVID-19 if you have previously been in contact with someone with COVID-19 or someone who has traveled to an area with a local transmission of COVID-19, and if you do not heed the government's advice to stay at home. However, if you do not have this risk, you are most likely to have a fever and shortness due to other causes, for example viral and other bacterial infections, bronchitis, asthma, pleural effusion, pharyngitis, rhinosinusitis, gastritis, peptic ulcers, Crohn's disease, intestinal obstruction, disorders heart, psychic disorders, and so on.
Clinically, it is really difficult to distinguish between fever and shortness that arise because of COVID-19 and due to other causes. However, if it is true that your fever has appeared more than 3 days, and if the tightness that you feel is very disturbing, it's better you check yourself directly to the doctor. Later the doctor can give you medicine, direct it for a supporting examination (such as an x-ray, blood test), or refer you to the right specialist (such as lung or internal medicine).
In the meantime, the initial steps that can be taken are:
Overcome fever and tightness by taking paracetamol, plenty of rest, and warm chest compresses that are tight
First reduce the consumption of foods and beverages that contain gas
Eat regularly, small portions but often
Avoid contact with things that make you allergic
Don't get too tired, especially outside the house, unless it's an emergency
Do not smoke
Stay away from smoke, pollution, dry air, dust
Calm your mind
Hope this helps ...
