Asthma: First you need to stop smoking! then you need to be compliant with your inhalers for them to be effective. See a pulmonologist or allergist to help you control it. Cancer is a result of smoking not asthma, and so are blood clots, the more reasosns to quit! ...Read more

Could an inhaler for asthma raise your blood alcohol level?

Could an inhaler for asthma raise your blood alcohol level?

No: There's no alcohol in an albuterol inhaler and even if there were there definitely wouldn't be enough to give a positive test. Even breath sprays that do have alcohol in them (Binaca) don't give a positive result 5 minutes after a spray. ...Read more

When i run my lungs burn & sometimes i taste blood. I've spat up blood before. I have asthma but my inhaler doesn't help. Can acid reflex do this?

Coughing blood?: If you are coughing up blood, called hemoptysis, you need to be evaluated by your doctor. The most common cause is bronchitis but malignancy needs to be ruled out. Gerd can cause bronchospasm, like asthma does, but neither should cause you to cough up blood. If you are short of breath or coughing up large amounts of blood, then go to the er. If you smoke, you need to quit asap. ...Read more

If you have had: infection recently please get to the healthcare provider to check for continuing infection, or blood clot in the lungs (pulmonary embolism). A diagnostic CT angiogram would be the best examination for this complaint. If these tests are negative, then you could have a rib contusion or hematoma from severe coughing. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

See a doc! : Acid reflux or asthma can cause a chronic cough, but if treatment for those conditions doesn't help, it's time to look for another cause. Heart problems, cancer, and even certain medications can cause a chronic cough. A doctor can do tests to narrow down the cause, which is important. If treatment for any condition isn't working, always let your doctor know! ...Read more

These effects occur through many mechanisms, including activation of the sympathetic nervous system, adrenal hormone release, and the release of many neurotransmitters. Carbon monoxide is not known to have a direct effect on the heart or vessels, but impairs blood oxygen delivery. ...Read more
