Shortness Of Breath, Itchy Throat And Lots Of Phlegm?
Hi doctor. Good night. Power puput, female 20 years. I have a history of ARI when I was a kid until I was a teenager. Every year, you always catch a cold and strep throat. But since high school grade 3 until now, I often have shortness of breath at night, but only at certain times. So I could not sleep. Then lately my throat feels itchy, and often phlegm production can be removed like a person vomiting. What should I do to reduce these symptoms? Thank you for the solution
Thank you for the question.
Often shortness of breath, itchy throat, phlegm, to want to vomit can occur one of them is due to ARI (acute respiratory infection). Some people are more susceptible to ARI usually due to poor body endurance or close contact with other ARI sufferers. Not only ARI, other factors, such as allergies, irritation, asthma, foreign body aspiration, exposure to dry air, reflux of stomach acid into the throat, to infections in other organ systems can cause complaints like this.
What you should do if your complaints are often recurring is, immediately check with your doctor. Through direct physical examination, or accompanied by blood tests, x-rays, sputum tests, to endoscopy, doctors are often able to identify the best management that needs to be done. If necessary, the doctor can refer you to an ENT doctor or internal medicine later.
