Symptoms Of Shortness Of Breath And Dry Cough Without Fever
I was short of breath for about 1.5 months. Shortness I did not wheeze, but just felt a little heavy when breathing. Shortness also arise. I also had a dry cough but it was not too hard, rarely appeared but still felt today. I did not have a fever at all, had a slight fever but only a day when the cough began to appear. I happen to have a family history of asthma from my father. Can I be infected with covid? Or is this just asthma?
Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
Based on the complaint you made, the complaint cannot refer to one definitive diagnosis, because there is a need for a physical examination and other examinations. But I will try to describe some of the causes that you complain about.
Shortness of breath in general can be caused because there are disturbances in several organs of the body, including disorders of the lungs, heart or stomach. Shortness of breath caused by interference with the lungs can be accompanied by cough with phlegm or dry, runny nose, and can also be accompanied by fever. It depends on the cause, if there is a lung infection then it will cause symptoms of cough with phlegm and fever.
While shortness of breath caused by interference with the heart, usually marked tightness in the upper left chest and accompanied by pain that spreads to the shoulders and left arm. Usually people who experience this complaint have a high cholesterol history. For shortness of breath caused by the stomach, marked by tightness in the lower chest or upper middle abdomen. It feels like crushed, and sometimes accompanied by a dry cough and sometimes cough with phlegm but it is difficult to come out, nausea and pain in the gut.
Covid19 has symptoms of dry cough or cough, sore throat, fever above 37.5 degrees and shortness of breath. If your complaint does not lead to it, then your complaint may be caused by something else. Keep doing self-isolation for 14 days to prevent the spread of covid 19, wash your hands using soap after activity, take a multivitamin and avoid foods that irritate the stomach, such as: coffee, noodles, sour and spicy.
