Shortness Of Breath Accompanied By The Body Feels Feverish After Frequent Contact With Cats?
I have been short of breath for almost a week. Previously indeed my breath was already tight, but had never seen a doctor. But this week I feel my breath is really “tight, and also feel feverish. I have a cat at home and I often kiss too. Can my condition affect my contact with my cat? And I guess my symptoms include what illness? Thanks.
Thank you for the question.
Shortness of breath and chills may indicate that you are experiencing an infection in the respiratory tract, often due to a virus, but can also be due to bacteria or other microorganisms. It could also, shortness and chills occur because of other triggers, such as asthma, bronchitis, aspiration pneumonia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, intestinal obstruction, intestinal inflammation, allergies, psychological disorders, hormonal disorders, hormone side effects, drug side effects, and various other diseases.
Contact with cats, if you have an allergy to fur, feces, or dirt that sticks to his body, can also cause you tightness. However, it is not impossible that your complaint arises because of the various conditions above.
It is better if your tightness is very annoying, check yourself directly to the doctor or internist. If deemed necessary, he can recommend that you undergo an x-ray examination, blood test, or other examination tests in order to give you the right treatment.
In the meantime, your tightness can be relieved first by resting while positioning your head and chest higher, compress the tight warm chest, stay away from substances that might make you allergic, don't worry too much or panic, and loosen your clothes. In order to get over your fever, you can also take paracetamol, use clothes that warm you up, and drink more warm water.
Hope this helps ...
