Shortness Of Breath Until Coughing And Vomiting?
I want to ask, two days ago I was like having a cold and strep throat accompanied by a cough with phlegm. After that suddenly my inflammation disappeared and the cough had started to subside. But my head was very painful from around my forehead and eyes to pain in my head so that my head was also very painful. And I can’t get rid of snot easily but it’s easy. But my head still hurts from two days ago until now. After that I noticed lately every night I often burp. And like suddenly shortness of breath, if I take a deep breath I actually just choke and then cough and vomit that expels phlegm, and the body suddenly accompanied by a headache too. What are the symptoms of this illness?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The symptoms that you are experiencing may be caused by inflammation of your sinuses or sinusitis. Sinusitis often occurs after a person experiences a cold cough. The following are some of the symptoms of sinusitis that are often found:
there is thick mucus coming out of the nose or running down the back of the throat (post nasal drip)
pain that feels like depressed in sinus areas on the face like on the forehead, at the base of the nose between the two eyes, on the cheeks under the eyes, which usually will weigh when bent
other symptoms that can also occur include headaches, body weakness and fatigue, coughing especially heavy at night, decreased smell and hearing, fever, bad breath, smelling bad odor, etc.
You should immediately check yourself to the ENT doctor. The doctor will carry out further evaluations in the form of a direct physical examination and additional examinations if needed and provide appropriate treatment for your condition (can be given decongestant drugs, intranasal costicosteroids, and antidemam drugs). Here are some things you can do:
adequate rest and sleep
drink more fluids (normally you are advised to drink 2-3 liters a day, try drinking more than that amount)
take a warm bath and breathe warm steam from your bath water
use a humidifier in your room or office
warm compresses on the painful face
to wash your nose with physiological saline liquid and baking soda (to find out how to complete it, you can read in the following article), you can also use nasal spray containing saline which is sold freely at pharmacies.
sleep in head higher (use more pillows)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
