Treatment Of Shortness Of Breath That Never Heals?
Greetings doctor, it has been more than 2 weeks I have difficulty breathing, initially normal shortness, and even in 1 week my breath is very short, and the chest feels pain when holding or breathing, and I can only lie on the mattress, tilt or even sit unable to, because if I sleep on my side or sit down, this breath feels clogged, and my chest hurts so much … I have checked it 3 times and given medicine by my village doctor … he said because it was blocked by the wind ,, and thank God now I can wake up, but this breath still crowded and this is already the third week … I started to worry about what exactly my illness … because I and my family had no history of asthma.
Hello Saroja, Thank you for the question.
Do you experience coughs, colds, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, belching, fever, palpitations, or other complaints? Did the doctor deliver the diagnosis to you? There is no such thing as clogged in medical language that it is difficult to recognize the intention of the doctor who examined you.
Various health conditions can cause shortness of breath so that to ensure the cause is indeed needed further examination by a doctor. The following are some of the causes of shortness of breath:
pleural effusion for example due to pneumonia, tuberculosis, lung cancer
chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
stomach acid disease
impaired cardiac function
If this complaint has been going on for a long time and does not improve even though you have already undergone treatment, you should immediately consult an internist in a large hospital in your city. The doctor will ask again about your complaints and examine you, including conducting additional examinations such as blood tests, sputum examinations, X-rays, CT scans, and others. After confirming your medical condition, a new doctor can provide treatment that is appropriate for you.
Please do the following suggestions:
avoid heavy physical activity
get enough rest
Hopefully this information is useful,
