What Causes 3-week Cough With Wheezing?
I cough prolonged even more than 3 weeks. Head feels dizzy, easily fatigued, shortness of breath, and sounds of breathing in the sound of sometimes wheezing or not even wheezing sounds like snoring. What do you think I’m sick of. I am confused whether this is bronchitis or lung disease. Because I went for treatment but the diagnosis was always different. Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand the confusion you feel. Complaints that you experience easily fatigue, shortness of breath, breathing sounds and so on can occur due to various things, such as:
COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Anemia or lack of red blood cells
Therefore, with many possibilities, it is actually very understandable if you receive a different diagnosis from each doctor. But if you do not change doctors every time your complaint does not improve, each doctor will definitely try to evaluate, carry out more in-depth checks and conduct ongoing monitoring that will lead to the same diagnosis. Our advice, if you have not previously received treatment from a lung doctor, check your complaints to the pulmonary doctor and control it regularly. Every time the medicine runs out, and your complaints don't improve, return to the same doctor for evaluation. You also have the right to ask about the extent of disease determination that your doctor has reached, what are the next steps, and whether you need to be referred or not.
Meanwhile, to help reduce coughing and increase your endurance, consume warm water, avoid consuming greasy and overly sweet foods first, apply warm balm to your chest area, avoid dust, pollution and cigarette smoke, and take regular breaks. So, hopefully answering your question.
