In the crisis of the Covid-19 global pandemic, we all are stuck in our houses for over a year now. Stress seems to increase with days because the virus is affecting every community around us gradually. We all are sick and tired of the same situation stretching long.
People are scared to death because of the negative atmosphere outside that any illness they suffering, people assume it is affected by the coronavirus. But we need to clear our mind that everything doesn’t mean covid. We had our life going even before this pandemic and we used to get sick for whatever reasons may be.
Well, that was different sickness and now anything happens it has to be ‘covid-19’? No, that is not the case, fortunately. We all know some common symptoms of covid-19 like runny nose, breathlessness, wheezing cough, etc. But these are aligned with the symptoms of asthma as well. Do you know that?
Asthma can be termed as an inflammatory disease of the airways of your lungs. If you are coughing constantly and shortness of breathing, these could be signs of both asthma and covid-19. Breathing problems are very common symptoms of asthma we all know that, don’t always assume it as Covid 19 and get all panicked. This condition can be some allergies triggered by environmental factors like pollution, dust or pollen.
The best suggestion is to take your expert’s advice in this situation to have a clear idea. Be alert to your respiratory conditions especially, because symptoms of both health conditions are connected to that. Take your medications exactly as they prescribed and never ignore the symptoms and delay them. Some symptoms of covid-19 and asthma overlap with each other, creating more confusions and panic in our minds. Below are some similar symptoms of both diseases:
- Wheezing cough
- Sore throat
- Loss of appetite
- Runny nose
- Chest tightness
Confusing isn’t it? So whenever you notice these above symptoms occurring immediately consult a doctor and discuss everything instead of assuming things by yourself. The sooner you reach out to a doctor, the sooner they help you identify your proper problem before they take a severe turn. Leading it to a serious condition can lead you to prone to other diseases as well.
