Why Is Strep Throat So Hard To Breathe?
Hello why do I feel tightness in the chest and I have checked he said I have sore throat. But this disease continues until now. Then I’m also sensitive to smoke, eating ice and spicy. I also like feeling lonely (introverted). What exactly am I sick with?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain, since when exactly did you experience tightness in your chest and when exactly did you undergo an examination to the doctor? Do you experience other symptoms accompanying tightness in your chest, such as coughing, chest pain, fever, body weakness and fatigue, breathing sounds, or other symptoms?
Shortness of breath can be caused by various causes, including:
disorders of the lungs such as lung infections or pneumonia, tuberculosis, bronchitis, bronchiectasis, pneumothorax, pleural effusion, asthma, COPD, pulmonary embolism, lung cancer, etc.
disorders of the heart such as heart failure, arrhythmias or heart rhythm disorders, heart attacks, cardiac tamponade, cardiomyopathy, etc.
other causes such as severe anemia or excessive blood loss in fast time, carbon monoxide poisoning, choking of foreign bodies in the airways, epiglotitis, Guillain-barre syndrome, myasthenia gravis, psychological disorders (such as panic attacks, anxiety disorders, depression), etc.
We recommend that you do a visit to the doctor if indeed shortness of breath you are still frequent and very disturbing your daily activities. If indeed you experience severe shortness of breath, immediately go to the hospital. Here are some things you can do:
Avoid smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke
Avoid exposure to excessive air pollution
avoid exposure to certain chemicals that can irritate the airways
try to take a deep breath and exhale slowly
Introverts and often feeling lonely are two different things. Introverts find peace and recovery of mental energy in solitude. Introverts actually prefer quiet situations and enjoy solitude because the crowd and social interactions often cause them to feel mentally exhausted. If you often feel lonely, or you often feel sad yourself, have no energy, lose interest in doing things you previously liked, or you feel other mental symptoms that interfere with your daily life, you can try to consult with a psychologist or a psychiatrist for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
