Hello Ella, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Based on the story that you convey, there are some main complaints, namely breathing is difficult, chest discomfort, accompanied by coughing, colds that are not frequent. Based on the above info, there are several possibilities, namely:
In connection with eating late that happens to you some possibilities are gastritis, peptic ulcer, or GERD. All three are problems with your stomach, which are based on an increase in excessive stomach acid causing excessive gas in the stomach, the stomach will expand and push against the chest, so that sometimes complaints such as difficulty breathing. Besides the main complaints are discomfort in the stomach, sore, nausea, pain, etc.
Since I don't know my previous history of illness, complaints of cough, runny nose and shortness can occur due to asthma, common cold, flu, allergic rhinitis, etc.
If you are> 40 years old, you should also consider the possibility of heart problems.
To be sure, you should consult a doctor directly. The doctor will perform history taking, physical examination directly, and supporting examinations if needed. Right now what you can do is:
Rest, sleep 7-8 hours a day.
Improve your diet, if complaints cause lazy eating, then eat a small portion, but you repeat.
Avoid spicy foods, or too sour.
Avoid drinking coffee, alcohol or acidic drinks.
Use a mask, and avoid crowds because your immunity is being disturbed.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
