What Symptoms Do These Include?
Hello doctor Good evening, I want to ask, I have a friend, he has symptoms of dry cough for many years not healed, sometimes he likes shortness of breath, nausea and dizziness, his eyes are a little yellow and his nails are a little black, and he is an active smoker, but his body fat about 80kg if the disease is thin right or not fat like that … According to this doctor what are the symptoms of the disease and how is the treatment solution? Thank you doctor good night.
Thank you for the question.
A dry cough that doesn't heal, accompanied by shortness of breath, nausea, dizziness, yellow eyes, and blackened nails in smokers can be caused by a number of the following conditions:
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD, reversal of some acid from the stomach to irritate the esophagus) Bronchitis (inflammation of the lower airways leading to the lungs) Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa) Asthma (inflammation of the lower airways that causes increased mucus and narrowed airway) Other factors, for example allergies, pneumonia, pulmonary tuberculosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, gastric cancer, liver disorders, bile duct disorders, heart problems, etc. Not all of the above conditions are dangerous. Not all of the above conditions will also make the sufferer's weight immediately decrease. In fact, obesity can also be one of the triggers of complaints (for example, people with GERD will have more severe symptoms if they are obese). However, judging by the complaint that seems quite disturbing, it's good that you still invite your colleague to check himself directly to the doctor or internist. Thus, the condition can certainly be handled properly according to the cause. Usually, if you suspect an illness, the doctor will direct your colleague to undergo an x-ray, blood test, blood test, and other supporting tests.
In the meantime, what your colleague should do to improve his complaints is:
Stop smoking Do not over consume cold food, greasy, and artificial sweetness Eat a little but often Drink plenty of warm water Diligent eating fruits, especially those containing rich in vitamin C Warm compresses tightness of the chest and nausea Do not yell excessive Excessive exercise more ideal body weight Use more rest mask Stay away from substances that can create allergies Hopefully it helps ya ..
