Can U Get Headaches After Taking Inhalers
Inhaler headache: Headache after your inhaler can be from vascular dilation and blood flow changes in the central nervous system. Non-steroidals like over the counter Ibuprofen and naprosyn (naproxen) can be helpful for this. They might also reduce your need for asthma inhalers. Be mindful that their principal side effect is stomach acidity so you might need an antiacid type medication simultaneously. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've recently been prescribed a qvar brown aerosol inhaler. I've noticed while using it I've had a dull constant headache. Could this be the inhaler??
I have bad chest pain, and my upper back behind my ribs are hurting. Small headache too. I took sinus medicine, not working. took my rescue inhaler to?
Chest & back pain: This could be all related to muscle aches. Try some tylenol (acetaminophen) & hot shower as that can help relax muscles. Avoid heavy lifting. You can use topical heating pads available OTC. Check if you have a temp! If not better, go & see your PCP. If you have any heart problems, you have to seek medical attention NOW. ...Read more

Some water went down my windpipe and am coughing. Afraid of secondary drowning but i can breathe ok now. Will my asthma inhaler help if im still wheezing after awhile? Also getting a headache that doesnt mean water is on my brain does it?

Would need an exam..: To answer your question an exam and more history would be needed. At the very least it sounds like you have a viral URI or allergies. If you are requiring your albuterol more than every 4-6 hours or the symptoms are persisting or getting worse at all, make an appointment to be seen or a consult appointment here on healthtap to better determine if an in person doctor visit is needed. ...Read more
