Shuhaida Othman
(Chronic Cough)

My name is Shuhaidah Othman, I worked as a clinical research coordinator. I was having chronic cough for about 3 months. At first, I thought it was just a normal cough, so I just take some medicine from the pharmacy, but it doesn’t resolved for 3 months, so I decided to seek a specialist consult. The cough affects my daily life, and my job, so that’s why I see a lung specialist, Dr Nurul Yaqeen.

The treatment is very significant. The recovery is very significant, because after about 3 months of therapy and continuous follow up here, my cough is like literally resolved, and it’s not here anymore, so I don’t cough at all right now. It has fully recovered. Most important thing is that I feel very healthy right now, compared to the last 3 months, it’s a very pleasant experience here, because you can actually see your recovery, you’re recovering, so ya, it’s been a good journey

Chan Chee Ong
(Blood in Cough)

Before this, everyday I’ll have blood in my cough. So, I was very worried. After that, I met Dr Nurul, and after I took the medications that she prescribed, my bloody cough has resolved. The treatment was good. Very good. After I completed the treatment, my problem has been solved. Now, I can work as usual, I can lift up heavy stuffs. Before this, every time I lift up heavy stuffs, I will cough out blood.

Now, no more. After I took medications from doctor, my bloody cough have resolved. My take home message is to come and jumpa a spevcialist doctor if you have bloody cough. I’ve went to normal doctor previously, but my bloody cough did not resolved. After I came over and meet the doctor here, my bloody cough has resolved. Thank you so much, doctor

Ooi Lai Heng
(Breathing Problem)

My name is Ooi Lai Heng, I live in Alor Setar, Kedah. I came here in September 2020, because of shortness of breath and breathlessness. I have seen many doctors in Penang, but my shortness of breath still not improved. I met with Dr Nurul, and she gave me medications, in the form of inhaler and a tablet that I have to take once a day. After 2 weeks, I can feel the significant improvement, and now, today. I came for my follow up after 2 month, my shortness of breath has improved up to 80% and I am more energetic and healthy now.

So, I’m very confident with Dr Nurul’s treatment that have helped me to recover my breath and lung health. Initially I was skeptical and not sure about doctors here, because they’re very young. But then, I found that, even though they’re young, their medications and treatments work. I think they’re more up to date with the latest medical technology. I would like to thank Sunway medical Centre Velocity, and my special thank to Dr Nurul for treating me.

Elias

Elias bin Adam
(Breathing Problem)

My father, Elias bin Adam, had Alzheimer’s disease and was bed-ridden since 2 years ago. My dad is 92 years old. He had a lot of phlegm, and he can’t remove out his phlegm. My dad looks tired and he will just fall asleep throughout the day. His breathing also seems to be laboured and noisy. The part-time nurse that came to do her daily visit to bathe and do light exercise for my dad suggested to bring my dad to see a doctor. I went to see Dr Nurul. She ordered series of blood tests and X-rays to diagnose his infection. Then Dr Nurul Yaqeen have given the antibiotic regime, nebulizer and physiotherapy to remove the thickened phlegm.

I’ve seen my father’s improvement, from very ill with difficulties to breath, to his condition now, when he has recovered. Alhamdulillah, I’m so grateful. Thank you to Dr Nurul Yaqeen & nurses who are very patient and compassionate in treating and taking care of my father. All the informations on my father’s illness were explained in a clear manner by Dr Nurul Yaqeen and other referred doctors.

Breathing Problems – what are the common causes, symptoms and treatment available in Malaysia?

A breathing problem is often described as ‘shortness of breath’ or ‘difficulty to breathe’. Some patients may describe it as ‘panting episodes’.

The symptom can be due to diseases of the lungs, heart, blood or hormones. Hence, it is very important to describe in details on the characteristics of your breathing problem.

Usually there will be triggering factors that will initiate the symptoms.

For example, among asthmatic patients, the common triggering factors for their shortness of breath are cold temperature, exposure to dust, smoke and pollen.
