Good evening, I would like to ask, why if every time I cough my head hurts and my stomach aches as well as being pulled around like that?

1 Answer:

Good evening Ratna, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

Coughing itself is the body's natural defense mechanism to freeze foreign matter from the body. In the process of coughing involves the use of respiratory muscles including chest muscles and abdominal muscles. When there is a cough the intrathoracic pressure (pressure in the chest cavity) becomes increased followed by an increase in intrabdominal pressure (pressure in the abdominal cavity), so that the contraction of the respiratory muscles (in this case the chest and abdominal muscles) will cause sensations such as muscles that feel tense and interested. This also occurs in the frontal headache complaints that may occur due to muscle tension.

It should be noted whether the complaint only occurs when coughing and will disappear after coughing or settling. If the complaint is not settled it is usually harmless.

To that end, several things that can be done to reduce these complaints include:

1. Drink plenty of warm water

2. Avoid consuming foods or drinks that are too sweet because it can stimulate coughing

3. Avoid consumption of cold drinks

4. Use a mask when traveling outside the home

5. Eat nutritious foods and exercise regularly

If the complaints get worse like coughing for more than 2 weeks, coughing up blood, or severe shortness of breath immediately to the doctor to get treatment immediately

A few answers from me, hopefully it helps
