Breathing Cold Air Hurts
Breathing in the cold air hurts my lungs a lot (makes me feel like puking). Is there a way to lessen the pain?
Cold air: It's not abnormal for cold air to cause spasms in the lung airways, making it harder to breathe. Cold air can dry out your lungs, and make them 'cold too.' breathing through your nose will help, and at times, some people may have an asthma event triggered and those patients will benefit from an inhaler to use 15 minutes prior to going out to exercise in the cold. Good luck to you. ...Read more

My nasal passage gets quite a bit painful when I'm outside n breathing in cold air, if I cover my nostrils the pain goes away, why does it hurt?
Dryness or cold sens: Cold air doesn't hold as much moisture and can be irritating especially if the nose is already dry which it is this time of year which is why it's better when it's covered.

Hi, I have sleep apnea, I bought snorepin to put in the nostrils for better breathing, but now I feel cold air in the top of the nostril and it hurts?
Not just the nose.: An obstructive sleep disorder is mainly secondary to the base of the tongue. Although enlarged tonsils and enlarged uvula may contribute to the obstruction, the nose contributes less to sleep disorder. The technique you are using to open the nostrils wider does not contribute much. If there is sleep apnea or a significant sleep disorder, the best treatment is positive pressure with a mask. ...Read more

Possibly if you have: Asthma. Cold, dry air ^’s nasal mucus production & viscosity. Mucus is part of our body’s defense mechanism. It traps viruses & other particles.

Capillaries in the nose dilate to bring warm blood to the nares. As these tissues fill with blood. ...Read more

It's both cold ; dry: Dry air is more the problem, and colder air in the winter is also drier. Use of scarves or coats that cover the chin and mouth, or hoods, may be helpful. Treating the cause of the bronchitis, particularly smoking cessation if you are a smoker, is critical. It will not generally make the bronchitis progress more, but can lead to more upper respiratory infections. ...Read more

Breathing issue.: This could be a number of things.

My Daughter is experiencing wheezing (worsened by: breathing in cold air, lying flat, exposure to secondhand smoke, in the evening, at night).
Secondhand smoke: The most important intervention is the elimination of secondhand smoke. Children who live with smokers have a higher rate of asthma and more severe asthma symptoms. Secondhand smoke spreads throughout a living space so smoking must stop in entire living space. The car also needs to be smoke free. Follow up with doctor as child may still need medication for the wheezing. ...Read more

Chest discomfort: In view of your history of afib, cardiac causes of chest discomfort and possible blood clots (emboli) to the lungs must be considered.

Mouth Breathing: People who mouth breath at night when the air is cold and less humid often dehydrate their mouth and throat to the point of wakeing up and coughing. Also breathing cold air is irritating to the mucosa in the back of your throat. When you breath through your nose, the air is warmed before it hits your throat. If you can't clear your nasal passages, try sleeping with a surgical mask. ...Read more

Cough, wheeze: A dry hacking cough accompanied by inspiratory wheezing is consistent with a type of asthma. If it's associated with a recent respiratory tract infection, it may be a temporary asthmatic bronchitis rather then chronic bronchial asthma.

I just went outside in cold air to smoke a cigg and when I came in my upper middle chest hurt and was tight and I was wheezing. What could it be?
Could be time to...: Could be time to quit smoking. Your body is telling you something. Smoking damages your lungs. Cold air makes your lungs have to work harder to keep the air in them warm and moist. When you were out in the cold your lungs could adapt like they should (or used to) so you started wheezing - a sign you cannot dilate your airways. Hopefully this will help you pick a quit date - good luck! ...Read more
Tooth pain+sensitivity to cold. Had a filling a month ago. Xrays looked fine today. Cold air hurt on tooth too. What else could be causing this pain?
Not uncommon or....: It's not uncommon to have some sensitivity for awhile following a new filling, and more likely to occur with deep, large, and amalgam filling. Other possible causes are gum recession exposing the root surface and the bite being slightly off. It should be getting better rather that worse or the same over time. If not, return to your dentist to have check it out or some other adjacent tooth problem. ...Read more
