The Cause Of The Cough Does Not Go Away Accompanied By A Headache?
Good evening, doctor
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain a few things:
Since when exactly did you cough? Is the cough that you are experiencing a cough with phlegm or not? What is the diagnosis of the doctor who examined you and what drugs have you been taking? Are there certain medications that you take regularly? How was your check-up? Is there a specific purpose why you do a heart check-up (for example because you have certain heart disease risk factors, there is left chest pain, palpitations, a history of illness such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, or a history of coronary heart disease, or a doctor have you ever diagnosed you have a heart condition)? Providing complete information, especially related to the symptoms that you are experiencing, your disease history, and the medication you are taking will greatly help diagnose an illness.
In general, cough can be divided into acute cough, subacute, and chronic cough. Acute cough is a cough that occurs less than 3 weeks, subacurial cough is a cough that occurs between 3-8 weeks, while a chronic cough is a cough that occurs more than 8 weeks. The causes of acute, subacute, and chronic cough can vary.
Acute cough is most often caused by infections in the respiratory tract, can be infected by viruses or bacteria. Subacute and chronic coughs can be caused by infections, can be bacterial infections (usually atypical bacteria, including tuberculosis infections), fungal infections, or parasites, can also be caused by other non-infections such as asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, GERD or stomach acid disease, side effects of certain drugs, lung cancer, etc. If indeed your cough has been going on for more than 3 weeks, you can do a check up with an internist for further evaluation and treatment according to the cause. If it is suspected that there is a certain problem in your lungs, the internist can also refer you to a pulmonary doctor for further treatment.
I hope that I have enough information to answer
