The Chest Feels A Bit Hot, A Bit Heavy / Tight & The Throat Is A Bit Uncomfortable?
Thank you for the question.
With the co-19 pandemic becoming more prevalent lately, it makes us worry, but you should not panic in responding to it. Basically Covid-19 gives symptoms that are similar to other upper respiratory tract symptoms, namely fever, cough, and in advanced cases of shortness of breath. And the most important is the history of traveling or contact with people who have traveled to countries / regions in the country that are infected, a history of exposure or contact with positive patients with Covid-19 in the last 14 days.
The main complaints you feel are heavy breathing and a hot / tight chest. Shortness of the chest can be caused by many things, ranging from respiratory disorders (which are associated with covid-19), heart problems, digestive disorders (for which you have a history of stomach acid), and metabolic disorders. Need to dig a history of complaints, physical examination, and supporting examinations if needed to diagnose this. Basically, shortness caused by digestive disorders such as increased stomach acid is influenced by diet, and rising stomach acid can also cause discomfort in the throat.
If you have a history of covid-19 exposure as mentioned above and have symptoms such as fever, coughing, and shortness of breath, call 119 extension 9 or check with a covid-19 referral hospital in your area. If you do not have these symptoms (especially fever), you can quarantine yourself for 14 days and if you experience symptoms during quarantine yourself, contact the contact that has been mentioned. If you don't have a history of covid-19 exposure and have any of these symptoms, you can see your nearest doctor and get enough rest, and if you don't, you don't need to check yourself and always take care of your health.
