The Cause Can Not Talk To Sufferers Of Watery Lungs?
Hello … My father has watery lung disease. But what I’m confused about is why he can’t talk, is weak, and is in a daze? What caused it? And what is the solution for that?
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of watery lungs can be caused by two possibilities, namely pulmonary edema, and pleural effusion. The difference is that one is runny in the lungs, precisely in the alveolar part of the lungs, and the other is outside, the space between the lungs and the lining that surrounds it. Both of these conditions do not just appear and there is usually an underlying disease first.
Regarding your question, the watery lungs, both due to pulmonary edema and pleural effusion, should not cause symptoms like you mentioned by not being able to talk, being confused and so on. Because the disorder should be more specific to the respiratory system such as difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, coughing, and breathing sounds. So it is likely that there are other conditions that occur in your father outside the watery lungs themselves.
What might happen is that both the condition of the watery lungs and the symptoms of being unable to speak etc. are complications of the same disease, for example, if your father's blood sugar has been high and uncontrolled, this can cause kidney damage and kidney damage is what makes the accumulation of fluid in the lungs and the entry of toxic substances into the brain that causes it so. High blood pressure can also cause heart problems that result in fluid buildup, and rupture of blood vessels in the brain due to a stroke.
Therefore, at this stage we cannot really ascertain your father's condition. Investigations should be done with kidney function tests, blood sugar tests, CT scans, and other tests to find out his actual physical condition. Triggers of the watery lungs themselves can be due to heart disease, high blood pressure, viral infections, pulmonary embolism, injury to the lungs, head injuries, and drowning. For this reason, we recommend that you consult your father with an internist or pulmonary physician to see the possible causes, and how they relate to other complaints.
Meanwhile, there is nothing you can do independently, so you should immediately bring your father to the hospital, or if you have already been hospitalized, ask the doctor who treats him about possible illnesses and what options you have for treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
