Can Asthma Cause Back Pain
I have had back pain on both side mid way down my back for about 2 weeks now. I do have asthma and if I take prednisone the pain subsides temporarily?
Xray and Rx: Please get examined and only take medications prescribed for this by your family physician or medical doctor.
I have asthma. I have back pain and today woke up with chest pain. Only when I breathe does my back and chest hurt do I have an infection?
Probably not: Asthma causes one to have muscle pains especially if u have been coughing a lot and not well controlled. Chest pain from constant coughing is quite common. Back pain can also result from overuse of respiratory muscles in the back. Signs of infection wld be presence of fever, lethargy, bringing out a lot of colored phlegm, and worsening of asthma itself. If worried get urself checked.
Back pain towards the bottom of ribs when sighing or yawning. No asthma. Previously stopped breathing for a few seconds, did not gasp for air.
Back pain/rib pain: Afraid you need a good exam and likely a couple tests such as chest x-ray, pulse oximetry and pulmonary function tests. Lung examination; inflammation from pneumonia, pleurisy, pneumothorax, bronchitis can be involved. Trauma? Fever? The musculoskeletal system needs a good look; is there tenderness at a point. Not to mention the "stopped breathing" detail. Please seek urgent medical assistance.See 1 more doctor answer
I've been on antibiotics for two weeks now but still seem to have a chest infection and have started to have back pain around my ribs. I have asthma.
Treatment failure: Symptoms of an illness that will respond to a particular antibiotic usually start to improve within 3-4 days if the appropriate antibiotic was prescribed, and they were taken as directed. Relapse or persistence of symptoms is generally regarded as a treatment failure or inaccuracy of the original diagnosis (i.e. viral not bacterial). Your asthma complicates the issue, and you should be re-checkedSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a faint rash to my neck/cheek, asthma diagnosis 2 yrs ago requiring freq streriods, migraines, and chronic neck/upper back pain. Could this be lupus?
Need evaluation: Lupus is an autoimmune disorder where the body "reacts against self" for unknown reasons. Lupus can be difficult to diagnose and requires blood tests. Almost all patients with lupus have joint pain/arthritis and many have chest pain, fatigue, fever, hair loss, mouth sores, sensitivity to sunlight and rash on face. Almost any body organ system can be affected. Asthma is not associated with lupus.See 1 more doctor answer

Need more info....: Do you know why you are anemic? Did you have a blood transfusion to increase your hemoglobin and how long ago was that? Anemia can cause shortness of breath so, if the shortness of breath is new or worsening and, if you haven't had your hemoglobin checked recently, then this needs to be done asap. Anemia can also cause weakness, dizziness. Have you had a colonoscopy? You need anemia work-up.

Causes for tightness/slight pain in upper back that might make breathing sometimes difficult? Recentley diagnosed with asthma & allergies.
Allergic trigger: Asthma is often triggered by something to which you have an allergic or inflammatory respone. Also can be caused by exercise, cold air or fluid, also tension, stress or emotional triggers. The "tightness is the body's reaction to those triggers and needs treatmenty, usually with an inhaler. See an acute care clinic or your pcp.See 1 more doctor answer
Can asthma cause any kind of body aches? My shoulders my back hurt and my chest a lil. Also have cervical neck problems can it be from that?
Not usually: Some patients may have chest "tightness" or a vague aching pain especially during a flare up, but it isn't likely that your asthma is causing other joint problems. There are however other lung diseases that are associated with joint priblems, and they may "look like" asthma. You would need more evaluation to know if this is the case, but frankly it's more likely that they are unrelated.See 2 more doctor answers
