Shortness Of Chest To Breathe?
Tonight, I want to ask, I feel my chest tightness, disappearing, disappearing, arising, this week. 18 February ago I had an x-ray and the results of the lungs showed no problems. Because lately the corona virus is spreading, I want an x-ray again because my chest is tight and sometimes accompanied by pain and then can it be within a month of X-ray photo twice. Thank you ..
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Shortness of breath complaints can be caused by various things including:
Lung infections such as TBBC, pneumonia
Coronary heart disease
Gastric acid reflux / GERD
Panic attacks, and other causes
Because there are so many causes, it is necessary to conduct a thorough examination to determine one possible definitive cause. Examination in the form of physical examination by a doctor followed by additional examinations that are deemed necessary such as blood tests, chest X-ray examination, ECG, and so on. Investigations, including chest X-rays, are performed by a doctor if deemed necessary after a physical examination, otherwise it will not be done.
Some things you can do at home include:
Maintain a clean and healthy lifestyle
Avoid exposure to cigarettes
Avoid triggering complaints
If the complaint is felt immediately sit / lie down to rest
Use an air humidifier if available
If shortness is felt along with pain in the pit of the stomach, take antacids to relieve symptoms
If the complaint of tightness is heavy and accompanied by wheezing or wheezing accompanied by vomiting immediately see a doctor for further treatment, wear a mask when traveling outside. But for now if complaints can be resolved at home, you should postpone seeing a doctor and stay home. This helps to decide the spread of COVID-19. Do social distancing and apply a clean and healthy lifestyle while staying at home.
That's all, hope it helps.
