The Body Feels Aching When Holding A Cough?
I have been coughing for a week and have difficulty recovering, every time I cough I feel sore in my throat. sometimes sometimes after coughing I will feel nauseous and when I hold the cough it will feel aching in my chest and groin, and like muscle aches. is that reasonable?
Hello Rhyna, Thank you for the question.
Coughing is the body's defense response against irritants or foreign matter in the respiratory tract. In addition, if the respiratory tract becomes infected and then becomes inflamed and causes a buildup of mucus, a cough response will also occur in response to inflammatory substances released by the body and to remove this mucus. When someone coughs, the breathing muscles in the chest will contract. If you resist this coughing process, then the muscle that is supposed to contract is experiencing resistance and you can experience complaints of pain due to it. However, this is usually not related to groin pain; it is possible that your posture when holding a cough can cause muscle pain in the area.
Cough that occurs continuously need to know the cause because this complaint is usually based on a certain medical condition. Usually these complaints can be accompanied by other complaints such as colds, sore throat, fever, chest pain, shortness of breath, wheezing, decreased appetite, weakness, weight loss, and others. The following are some of the causes of cough:
stomach acid disease
Given that this complaint has lasted for 1 week, you should immediately consult a doctor before this complaint worsens. The doctor needs to do an interview about this complaint, examine you, and conduct further tests such as blood tests, sputum examinations, x-rays, and others. From this examination, the doctor will know the medical conditions that cause cough symptoms and determine the next treatment for you.
Please avoid coughing because coughing itself is a defense mechanism of the respiratory tract. In fact you do not expel phlegm carelessly. You are also advised to cover your mouth and nose if you cough or sneeze and then keep your hands clean afterwards to avoid transmission to others. Avoid exposure to cigarette smoke, dust and other air pollution and avoid smoking. You should also maintain your health by getting enough rest for 6-8 hours per day, maintaining a nutritious food intake, adequate consumption of 2-3 liters of water per day, exercising regularly, and managing stress well.
Hopefully this information helps you.
