Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
In general, shortness of breath can be caused by several disorders in the body, including:
Pulmonary disorders, shortness caused by the lungs are usually caused due to infection or can also be caused due to allergies. Which is marked in tightness with coughs, colds, fever, and shortness of breath. If the shortness is triggered by asthma then the shortness will be accompanied by the sound of ngik-ngik.
heart disorders, shortness caused by heart problems usually afflict the elderly, and the triggering factor is hypertension or cholesterol. Shortness accompanied by chest pain or can also be triggered by the way then appear shortness of breath.
stomach disorders, shortness caused by disorders of the stomach is a complaint of tightness that is often experienced, in addition to tightness due to lungs. This is caused by an increase in gastric acid which suppresses gastric blockage and esophagus so as to produce complaints of tightness, nausea, heartburn, and even sore throat. Increased stomach acid can be caused due to stress or excessive anxiety, irregular eating, consumption of coffee, noodles, sour and spicy foods.
Based on your complaint, it cannot be ascertained to lead to one of the definitive diagnoses, it is necessary to have a physical and supportive examination. But if your complaint is right, it only feels tight, maybe it is caused by the stomach. If you are worried about contracting covid 19, you need to know the incubation period or covid transmission period is not that fast, it takes 14 days to develop in the body. Therefore, self-isolation at home, still do a healthy lifestyle, because the virus will improve if your endurance is good, consume vitamin C and do not forget to wash your hands after doing activities.
