Thank you for the question.
Shortness of breath and a lump in your throat can indeed be part of the symptoms of COVID-19 (new Corona virus infection). However, other factors, such as other viral / bacterial infections (other than new Corona virus), allergies, irritation, tonsillopharyngitis, rhinosinusitis, bronchitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, asthma, pleural effusion, congestive heart failure, valvular heart disorders, panic attacks, panic attacks, psychosomatic disorders, excessive anxiety disorders, the influence of drugs, and so on can also trigger complaints that are almost similar to what you experience.
Cannot be distinguished with certainty what kind of tightness and lumps in the throat that arise due to COVID-19 or other causes if not conducted in-depth interviews, physical examination, and / or supporting examinations, such as throat swab test, blood test, sputum test, x-ray , etc. However, if the tightness that you feel is just mild, and you also do not feel ever contact with sufferers / suspects of COVID-19, then you should not rush to see a doctor first. Worried, your risk of contracting a dangerous disease will actually be even greater due to this action. Safer, you handle the minor complaints at home, namely by:
Warm compresses to your neck and chest
Expand also to drink and eat warm, easy to swallow, easy to digest, not spicy, and does not contain much gas
Eat small but frequent portions
Avoid foods, medicines, and other things that make you allergic
Expand relaxation, do not be afraid, anxious, panicked, or excessive sadness
Regulate your breath, exercise regularly
Do not smoke
Conversely, if the complaint feels very great, or if you are at risk of contracting COVID-19 because you have been in contact with sufferers / suspects of COVID-19, then you should check yourself directly to the doctor. If necessary, you may be directed to further check. to the ENT doctor or doctor of internal medicine.
Hope this helps ...
