Coughing Hard: Finding Relief for COPD

Coughing Hard?

Finding relief from COPD

Winters are on their way and we are sure you must be waiting for those mornings under your cozy quilts. But these winters are also responsible for aggravation of many pulmonary conditions like asthma, bronchitis, emphysema etc. So let's understand the big umbrella  comprising of these lung conditions.

Do you feel breathless with the change in temperature? Many people mistake their breathlessness & coughing as a part of normal ageing. It's detrimental to take notice of long standing symptoms of cough & breathlessness. These could be the symptoms of progressive lung diseases which fall under the broad category of COPD i.e Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases.

Cigarette smoking is far away the leading cause of COPD. It may also be caused by inhaling pollutants & is common in workers working in industries leading to secondary inhalation of fumes. At times COPD can also be genetic.

Attending your symptoms on time & visiting a good Chest Physician/ Pulmonologist will help you diagnose the condition & take the necessary measures.

Living with COPD can be stressful but small changes can make a bigger impact on the disease:.

Muscle Strain, Sprain or Injury – The RICE Protocol

Muscle Strain, Sprain & Injury: RICEStrains and Sprains - RICE Protocol

Muscle Strains or Muscle pulls often happen when you put a lot of pressure on a muscle or you push it too far, such as when lifting heavy object. Strains are more likely to happen if you haven't warmed up first, to get blood circulating to the muscles. They're also common for someone returning to a sport after a break or suddenly taking up rigorous exercises. Until you've been accurately diagnosed by a medical practitioner, RICE is usually very helpful.
Sprains are caused by injuries, such as twisting your ankle. This kind of injury is common and can happen any time you trip or fall. One lady sprained her ankle when she was crossing a pot-holed road!
Muscle pain - no matter how you describe it - "pulled muscle", "muscle strain", "muscle injury" or "torn tear" the end result is injury to your muscle potentially resulting in muscle spasms, pain, weakness and reduced muscle performance.
