He was diagnosed with asthma when he was a child, but has not used inhalers since perhaps early teens (except for the short term salbutamol recently as noted above). My husband saw his sleep disorders doctor (he has chronic-obstructive sleep apnea and is on CPAP therapy) who also happens to be a respirologist. My husband told her about the COPD, and she looked at his medical history and was adamant that he did not have it.
Would you please provide your opinion on these results as well as other possibly causes of my SOB and fatigue. I do have a family of COPD. For extra reassurances for me, he said he would order a chest scan. FVC - 118% FEV1 - 104% FEV/FVC - 73 FEF 25-75% - 70% PEF - 134% Chest x-ray showed mild hyperinflation with some increase in the AP diameter of the chest and in the size of the retrosternal air space. The lung specialist was not concerned about this and told me not to worry about it.
I'm 40 years old. I have had asthma since childhood - mild (occasional salbutamol) until about 10 years ago, then a little worse. Preventer inhaler as well as occasional ventolin - very rarely had symptoms. I smoked socially from age 20 (3-4 cigarettes each day - not underestimating!) until about 9 months ago - no further smoking. My breathing has become a little more difficult, is so for most of the time, and is worst in the morning.
But opted for the single lung transplant, as they felt she would not survive a double lung transplant. I too am 51 and have COPD. I very much understand your deep concern for your boyfriend. Lung transplants are extremely serious operations. A doctor that has not prescribed any meds for these lung diseases, but recommends lung transplant, I would be seeking a second opinion and quickly. I hold your boyfriend and you in my thoughts and prayers.

If I have COPD, which may be at the later stage by the time I have kids, I do not want to be sick as I watch my kids grow up. Is it possible for someone to get COPD this early in life? Even if the answer is NO, I will not be smoking a cigarette more. I am hoping this is just an asthma attack. My shortness of breath comes with a cough and phlegm. My cough is not so bad and it goes away about 2 days after maintaining a cough medicine and Salbutamol Inhaler.
i really dont have enough information here to help you effectively. how long have you had respiratory symptoms for? how did they evolve? how long were you exposed to asbestos for and how were you exposed to it? bronchitis is just a name given to an infection of the bronchail tubes and anyone can get it - its common. chronic bronchitis on the other hand is a specific diagnosis given to someone who has symptoms of bronchiths for greater than a 3 month period in 2 consecutive years.
Normal heart do it easily but compromised heart is unable to achieve desired flow, hence shortness of breath happens. To rule out COPD, spirometry is done. For congestive heart failure ECHO is carried out.
This is the worst part of my emphysema. As soon as I wake I have to use my inhaler (Airomir, Salbutamol) I have tried sleeping sitting up, but as I go off I get a chocking sensation, Has any one solved this problem?
html I have used an inhaled steroid almost constantly for about 20 years. If anything I find them easy to forget to take. In my opinion Salbutamol (Ventolin) is more psychologically addictive. What are your symptoms?
Doctor had given me Tiotropium bromide, which gave me good relief from SOB, but I was averse to having it since I thought it was only meant for the COPD patients and insisted so stopping it. Will it be a good idea to ask my doctor about starting it again? What can I do to reduce the SOB and enhance my energy level?
Sympathomimetic Drugs are ones that mimic adrenaline or noradrenaline. Bronchodilator medications (such as Salbutamol used for Asthma, COPD), Adrenergic stimulants, and vasopressor agents all fall into this category. For your consideration - if you are taking any of these type of drugs as well as thyroxine please raise these issues with your doctor. TO EVERYONE TAKING THYROXINE - Please read the prescribing information for your medication, it is important stuff.
It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Hi - I've been having difficulty breathing for at least the last 9-10 years...and it's a daily thing. I am 31 years old, am healthy (exercise almost daily, eat healthily, am not overweight, do not smoke, and only drink socially), and yet I always feel like my breathing is extremely laboured. I constantly yawn to try to catch a satisfying breath.
even without having heartburn which has not been a problem for me. I have been on Nexium for 5 days now, and I feel slightly better, but was up all last night because I couldn't breathe, then around 3:30am I was fine! I have an echocardiogram shceduled for this afternoon. I'm sure it will be fine too. I've also read that anemia or hypothyroidism can cause this. I'm not anemic and my thyroid levels are perfect at a TSH level of 1.8.
