The Relationship Between Shortness Of Breath, Wheezing And A History Of Lung Spots?
Good night, I want to ask, I used to have spots on my lungs but it’s healed, but now, almost every night the sound of my breath sounds wheesung and shortness of breath, why is that? Is that a side effect first? And also sometimes if I am active or relaxed suddenly my left chest hurts suddenly but after I cough it doesn’t hurt anymore, what are the symptoms? Thank you.
Hello Theresia, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Shortness of breath and wheezing can be caused by a variety of possibilities, the following are some of them:
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
heart failure complications
Lung spots (pulmonary tuberculosis) can indeed cause permanent lung damage if left untreated for a long time or if the disease recurs. Tuberculosis can cause bronchiectasis, which is damage to the bronchial tubes in the lungs. The bronchi become permanently thickened, widened, and stiff, causing a buildup of mucus (mucus) in these airways and easy infection of the airways.
Although it may be that the symptoms you are experiencing at this time are the result of an infection that you have had in the past, it is necessary to think about other causes as well. It's a good idea to do a direct examination to a doctor or you can also go to a Lung Doctor directly for further evaluation. The doctor will perform a physical examination, especially an examination of your lungs, and perform supporting examinations such as a chest X-ray or CT scan.
For now, some of the things you can do include:
Avoid smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke
Avoid exposure to air pollution
Clean your house, especially the bedroom from dust
Use an air purifier and humidifier in your room
Clean your air conditioner or fan regularly
If you experience choking and choking in the cold, you can use layered clothes or blankets when the air is cold.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
