Shortness Of Breath And A White Line Appears On The Throat?
Good evening, I would like to ask about the possible disease experienced. Starting from 2 days ago until this morning, my previous conditions included dry throat (slight pain), runny nose (clear to slightly greenish discharge), and no white patches on the throat, no fever, no cough, and shortness of breath. breath that I believed at the time was caused by a cold (stuffy). Then the condition after 2 days, I no longer have a sore/dry throat, and the discharge from the cold is clear, the only feeling is shortness of breath, but a white line (pale) appears on the throat. The shortness of breath that I feel becomes more pronounced after I eat in large portions so that I feel full. So, is my shortness of breath a symptom of diphtheria or a result of being full?
The presence of complaints that begin with sore throat and also a runny nose, may cause your breath to be uncomfortable, one of which is due to blocked breath or an uncomfortable throat condition. And this complaint will increase if accompanied by uncomfortable breathing after you eat until you are full. The presence of strep throat can also be accompanied by stomach or digestive disorders, so a feeling of fullness can also cause uncomfortable breathing complaints because your stomach may also be disturbed. So to make sure this complaint is a complaint of shortness of breath from the airways or due to other reasons (such as gastric disorders), it is necessary to carry out an examination and direct evaluation by your family doctor or a pulmonary specialist. Thus, the cause of the complaint can be identified and can be treated immediately.
While the presence of a white line in the throat may be caused by mucus or food residue that sticks to your throat when a complaint occurs. However, this needs to be seen by your doctor immediately.
For a while before seeing your doctor, you can count the frequency of your breaths. If the frequency of your breath is more than 20 times per minute, it shows that shortness of breath has affected your physical condition. And if the frequency of your breath is still normal, it may be triggered by other conditions.
For that, consult your family doctor and or your pulmonary doctor to determine the cause of this complaint, whether it is due to an inflammatory process in the upper respiratory tract, lung infection, asthma, or digestive disorders that make your condition more uncomfortable. Your doctor will also try to plan other necessary tests, such as blood tests, x-rays or heart tests.
Treatment will be given according to the results of the examination obtained.
