The Chest Feels Tight For Two Weeks, Is It Corona?
evening doc, I want to ask about why suddenly my chest is a little tight, maybe it’s been 2 weeks, fyi I’m a smoker of 38 yrs old male, but for a few days I’ve stopped smoking altogether but it’s still a little tight in my chest, maybe covid-19 , but I do not have a fever, flu or cough at all. only this time I feel like this … do I have to go to the internist? thanks in advance …
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Previously I have to confirm the chest feels tightness you mean is shortness of breath. Of course complaints of shortness of breath can be caused by several possibilities, as well as its relation to Corona infection in full you can read here.
For the time being, staying at home is the best choice to prevent wider transmission. If you are in an area with a local transmission of Corona infection (confirmed case), contact your doctor immediately if you experience symptoms such as coughing, nasal congestion, shortness of breath, and other respiratory symptoms.
So, hopefully useful.
