Thank you for the question.
Shortness of breath, coughing up phlegm, accompanied by annoying sounds when breathing that has often been repeated since childhood can be a sign that you have asthma (asthma bronkhiale). This condition occurs when the lower respiratory tract becomes inflamed, which narrows the airway and increases mucus production. Asthma is a type of atopic disease that is closely related to heredity. Frequently, asthma symptoms will recur when exposed to air substances (such as dust, cold, pollen, smoke, feces or animal hair, pollution), when experiencing respiratory infections, stress, fatigue, excessive exercise, consuming certain types of food or medication, and experiencing gastric acid reflux. When relapsing, asthma symptoms can be so severe that it disrupts sleep and makes it difficult for sufferers to undergo even mild activity.
Not just asthma, complaints like yours may also be caused by bronchitis, pneumonia, pulmonary tuberculosis, pleural effusion, allergies, other acute respiratory infections, gastroesophageal reflux disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, psychological disorders, immune disorders , etc.
Unfortunately, you do not explain what drugs you actually take so far. Therefore, it is also difficult for us to predict the exact cause of your complaints, especially determining the best treatment.
Our advice, first reduce your complaint by:
Rest more Move to a comfortable place, have good air circulation, not too crowded. Wear comfortable and loose clothing. Don't worry or panic excessively. Drink lots of warm water. Eat a little, but often. Don't eat gas-containing foods, for example mustard greens, cabbage, soda, coconut milk, fried foods, sauces, chilli sauce, coffee, and tea Don't over-consume drinks and cold food Don't yell excessively Avoid various air substances that often trigger tightness, as we have mentioned above After doing the tips above, You still have to go directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine so that your condition is handled more optimally. It may be that, in addition to giving medication and conducting physical examinations, your doctor will also encourage you to undergo an x-ray examination, lung physiology tests, or other supporting examinations in order to give you the right treatment.
Hope this helps ...
