Common Questions and Answers about Wheezing coughing out of breath what does this mean


Avatar n tn I stopped about 2 or 3 months before any of this came up. Currently I can't do much without feeling totally out of breath and energy. It is odd that it came on like this because I was very active in TaeKwonDo. I've had my black belt for about 8 months now and had been working out quite a bit but when this hit it went to zero immediately. I am hoping that there will be some resolution to this soon.
Avatar n tn I don't know what to think. I was real worried at first, but I think maybe I just have to wait this out. This year, it seems a lot of people are suffering from some kind of cough that is lasting longer than any in previous times. Like it's very noticeable. If I get better or have any better results from new medication, I'll post so those of you who have the same problem as me can try it and hopefully it will help you.

Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with bronchial asthma when I was little. I am 47, & my symptoms have changed with the place and house where I have lived. I don't need to get oxygen anymore, or have the same wheeze, but I still get out of breath and weak going up the stairs, or uphill, or with anything a little aerobic. I never could run . (I could, however, swim underwater and do acrobatics as a child, and in recent years could rollerblade and bike - not fast & not uphill.
Avatar n tn I have excess mucus, wheezing,shortness of breath, dizziness, and headaches. This happens mostly after eating and at night when I fall asleep. I recently had a food allergy test which showed I was allergic to glutens, but my asthma and allergy doctor says I am not, so I continue to eat whatever I want. Can you tell me why this happens. The meds don't work.
Avatar n tn There may be some underlying situation that we are not aware of that is bothering us and we are feeling the effects of it through the shortness of breath. I hope there is someone out there who can give us more solutions to this very frustrating problem.
209384 tn?1231171906 Have a call in to the dr already this morning. Hoping to find out what to do about this newest infection. Boy, once you get them they just REFUSE to leave! Wish there was something else I could do to help myself out here. Been trying to air out the house as often as possible. My little boy said the other night that he thinks it is our house that is making me sick, and we just need to call Extreme Make Over for a new house! Wishful thinking on his part, little stinker!
Avatar f tn Bronchitis are treated with the same meds as Trachea Collapse. This is more of a dry cough with wheezing at times or both....With this, sometimes the Heart shows enlargement,but it is not a Heart Problem! It's from lack of oxygen through the respiratory system.....Steroids are useful as needed for allergy season that can be a trigger.....Dust mites in the house affect this a lot (Especially in the winter when the heat is on and the house is closed up tight).......
1416390 tn?1333905204 OK, For starters, for any Senior Dog IMO, you DO need to rule out Heart Problems....The xray will not only show the heart, but also the lungs...This is important.... With Heart Disease, the weak heart cannot pump as well...Fluid builds into the lungs causing the cough..The cough is usually MOIST like they're choking on congestion...Actually, they are...The cough is worse in the mornings & during periods of running, playing & excitement....Fluid will show in an xray.....
Avatar n tn and that you live with this daily? i've cracked a rib, because of this constant cough. sometimes my coughing fits are soo bad that i vomit. i cannot carry on a normal conversation. my friends are totally fed up with this. too hard to keep a relationship, actually too embarassed to start one . cannot go out in public and not get nasty looks! what the heck do we have? i feel like an alien... surely there must me a cure somewhere. do doctors not read these blogs?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn I went away feeling better about my heart but still had the episodes of shortness of breath. After all of this, I finally decided to take control of the situation myself. I began an intense cardio workout program and lost weight. I changed my diet and did everything I could think of to become more healthy. At first I struggled with the conditioning and my own anxiety of losing my breath. The shortness of breath over the years had almost developed into a phobia of hard exercise.
Avatar f tn My doctor never really explained except to say that I had bronchitis which turned into asthmatic bronchitis. I do not have a history of asthma. So what exactly is asthmatic bronchitis? Does this mean I now have asthma? Also I am using the inhaler when I feel shortness of breath or start coughing uncontrollably is this right or should I only be using it when I have chest tightness? Please help!
1219510 tn?1266713553 He only does it when he is relaxed with me and his mind is engaged (reading stories, watching tv, etc.). She said he should grow out of it but he's 6 now. Anyone out there have this similar experience?
1352348 tn?1315553854 Okay so I've got a couple of things going on here and I'm not sure they are related to chiari or not... long story short i was decompressed 10-17-11 and then had to repair a dural leak with meningitis 11-07-11..... Okay so I still have MOST of my symptoms from prior to surgery and new ones as well.. So the doc says I'm fat.. LOL well not just like that, but she says "Jen, ur up 5lbs from last time, you really need to watch your weight..
Avatar n tn I have also at one point, printed out this string of comments and given to my doctor just to show her this is real and that it is not just me. She has prescribed aciphex, which is just like Nexium and I take it but it doesn't seem to help. I also have xanax which I only take when it is really bad because I am thrown into such a panic attack I am looking for ANYTHING that will help me. I do find that it is worse when I eat and I full so full that I can't breath, no matter how much I eat.
Avatar n tn I found in my search that caffiene and chocolate can worsen symptoms of GERD and the connection of it to difficulty breathing when lying flat, wheezing and coughing is found on a large number of very reputable sites (including Mayo Clinic etc...). Here's one medical research quote: "Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) may cause, trigger or exacerbate many pulmonary diseases.
Avatar n tn docs think i am crazy and too nervous and bring this on myself. i got out of the hospital this friday and they put me on protonix, but insurance wont pay for it, so i do not know what to do know. i have 4-5 other new meds they gave me to take that i am weary about doing so.does anyone else have a doctor that thinks they bring this on themselves?
Avatar f tn Usually the things people fight about, are not really the real issue. I hope you understand what I am trying to say. I don't know of any way to help you out of this situation. It's so easy for those of us on the sidelines to say do this, or do that, but we aren't in your shoes. Do you have a minister you can talk to? Or maybe your mom's friends? Do her friends help you, or side with her? Point out to them if they really are her friend, they could help her more.
Avatar m tn Wheezing Coughing that lasts or coughing up blood Shortness of breath Fever, especially if pneumonia is present What Are the Causes of Benign Lung Nodules and Tumors? The causes of benign lung tumors and nodules are poorly understood.
187316 tn?1386360282 *** i just asked DH about 1/2 tsp of ibuprofin. What concentration? If it's infants, that's enough to shut a kid's kidneys down. PLEASE consult your pharmacist.
Avatar m tn a local video store has evaporative air-conditioning and on hot days, it is really humid and I start coughing and can't breath, but resolves when I get out pretty quickly). With anemia, I felt fatigued and had a general malaise. In hindsight, I'm pretty sure what was happening is that when asthmatic symptoms were worse, it severely compounded by the anemia, and it became quite debilitating. Not knowing what on earth was going on, it was very disconcerting.
Avatar n tn I too have alot of the same symptoms as many of you. For the past 5 months I have had dizziness every day, more like waves of dizziness that roll over me and especially when I turn my head to the left or right. I have this constant pressure in my head and rarely will I get headaches. My eyes feel weird and I don't really know how to describe the way they feel, I just feel kind of out of it. I also have this almost constant fatigue.
Avatar f tn Anyways, on the left side of my ribs I have this dull ache that comes and goes for no reason whatsoever, what I mean is it doesn't matter if I'm taking a deep breath or stretching or applying pressure to it, it randomly aches and it scares me that it could be a tumor. Also I have some pain in my left shoulder, but got an EEG which ruled out a heart attack.
212161 tn?1476095111 It sounds very much like asthma. You can be out of breath, wheezing or coughing alone or all at the same time. Yours sounds like the cold air and leaves were also making it worse, so try to cover your nose and mouth with a scarf or something when you go out to help prevent symptoms. Your doctor will do some tests and listen to confirm that diagnosis, or suggest something else if it turns out that you don't have asthma. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Some days I can't go outside b/c it takes my breath. I'm afraid to sleep at night out of fear of stopping breathing. Can anyone help? I've been to the ER 5x in 3 months for breathing probs and choking sensations. They all think I have anxiety. I need help to get rid of this. I'm so down. I've lost 15 pounds in just a little over 2 weeks b/c I can't eat. I feel like I'm choking or my throat is closing when I eat. I can sometimes drink water.
942934 tn?1268111982 I feel tired a lot because of the daily coughing, chest tightness and occasional shortness of breath. My day is busy as it is and I need to be functioning a 100% at work, and these days my boss is complaining about my work as I am not as sharp as I used to be. What happens then is my sleep becomes disrupted because I am way over tired trying to perform as "normal" and then it becomes this crazy vicious cycle of bad sleep due to sheer exhaustion and very little stress tolerance.
329994 tn?1301666848 Or this is the problem and this is how we fix it! I can't explain all the technical things but I failed part of the pulmonary function tests which indicated my airways are constricted but the rest of the test was normal so she can't really explain why. She gave me an inhaler for when I exercise, do it 15 minutes before and see if that helps. I have to go back for a CT scan in May for the spot on my lung and she is having me do a home sleep study.
Avatar dr m tn If you can't breathe well through your nose, then your sense of smell will suffer, which means that your sense of taste will be altered as well. This can lead to appetite and weight issues. Your nose has vital nervous system connections to your lungs and heart. Not breathing well through your nose can alter your heart rate and blood pressure, as well as to increasing your stress response. Your nose makes about 2 pints of mucous every day.
