Hi, I have allergy in spring, almost cannot breath, all symptoms that have allergy I have in spring. How can I help myself, no medicin can halp me...

Next step: Get a thorough ENT exam, possibly there is an anatomic reason for your continuted congestion; like a deviated septum or turbinate abnormalities; or enlarged adenoids (not likely in adult). Also, allergy testing can be done and possibly you could get started on allergy immunotherapy (shots) or sublingual immunotherapy (drops under tongue) to give you better symptom control and treat the problem. ...Read more

I am a T1D. In 2013 I had a lesion in my liver that was 1.2 cm. In Feb. Of this year it has grown to 2.7 cm. Lately I cannot breath and feel bloated.?

A benign tumor?: Benign neoplasms of the liver are usually isolated space-occupying structures. Examples include: cysts, focal nodular hyperplasia, hemangiomas, adenomas, cholangiomas, cystadenomas, mesenchymal hamartomas. Giant (4cm) tumors can cause mass effect, thrombosis, pain. Your tumor has more than doubled in size, & needs further evaluation. Doubt your diabetes (T1D) is etiologic unless fatty liver. ...Read more

I'm 28 weeks pregnant. When I bend over I cannot breath at all. What could this mean?

I'm 28 weeks pregnant. When I bend over I cannot breath at all. What could this mean?

Normal physiology: As the uterus grows the space for your lungs decreases. This can make you feel short of breath. Bending over can worsen the problem. This is normal physiology of pregnancy. Asthma can worsen or improve with pregnancy. If you experience quick breathing or severe shortness of breath go to the emergency room immediately. Chances of a blood clot in the lung are increased in pregnancy. ...Read more

I feel a pain on my right side ribs bone and I feel a big pain even cannot breath smoothly?

Stitch: This is familiar and common. The pleura which lines the lung and inner chest cavity folds over itself. It feels like a knife and hurts when you breathe in. Get as much air into your lungs as you can and this usually ends the attack. If it persists or difficulty breathing occurs, get with a physician. ...Read more

I have a neigbor that cannot breath after shoveling some snow. He is 65, has not been to a doctor in years. I. Say ch, but there is no chest pain.?

Get him evaluated: If he is a friend, he might let you take him in to the physician to get checked.... Some people hate to go to the doctor alone. The sooner he is seen, the better. There are many things that make you breathless after exercise, so get him seen and get to the heart of it. ...Read more

My right nostril I cannot breath out of for about 2 months now sometimes it switches sides but there's no mucus & no pain. What can I do to open it up?

My right nostril I cannot breath out of for about 2 months now sometimes it switches sides but there's no mucus & no pain. What can I do to open it up?

Swollen tissue: Nasal obstruction that comes and goes but can't be blown out as mucus is typically swollen tissue. The swelling may be from several causes, most commonly allergy. Other reasons include infection, overuse of decongestant sprays or even metabolic causes like thyroid disease. If the symptoms don't respond to simple over-the-counter allergy medicines then its best to see an ENT doctor for an exam. ...Read more

Relative got in hospital because of a blood clot of 4cm, he is in icu now and cannot breath from what I've heard. All I want to know if he will be okay?

Without knowing: All of the specifics of the case it is difficult to answer even as simple a question as yours. Blood clots are a major cause of death in the US and worldwide. If he is in ICU it would mean that he is more compromised and critical than most. Contact his doctors for an appropriate answer to your question. ...Read more

When my stomach is empty I I fell that I I have stomach cramps and cannot breath then after I eat it subside.?

When my stomach is empty I I fell that I I have stomach cramps and cannot breath then after I eat it subside.?

Might be ulcer: An ulcer is a spot in the stomach that has lost the surface layer that protects deeper layers from stomach acid. Acid touching the unprotected deeper layer causes pain. Food in the stomach dilutes the acid and makes it not hurt as badly. An "empty" stomach can still have acid in it, and this undiluted acid can cause severe pain. See a gastroenterologist to determine if you have an ulcer or not. ...Read more

When I eat/drink dairy, my sinus passages close and I cannot breath out of my nose. Is it possible that it's a dairy allergy?

When I eat/drink dairy, my sinus passages close and I cannot breath out of my nose. Is it possible that it's a dairy allergy?

Probably not.: It is very unusual to have food allergy present in this fashion. Most experience some local release of histamine in the mouth or throat where the food contacts mucous membranes directly: itching, swelling, burning. Once the food is absorbed, then other organs (skin, lungs, nose) get involved. For cow's milk allergy only to be experienced in the nose without mouth would be rare. ...Read more

See below: Usually for upper respiratory infections and allergies, there are several things that can help. Nothing I've found completely resolves symptoms.

Every night I have stabbing chest pains and a weird sensation in my throat that I cannot breath properly. Normal chest x ray, echo and EKG?

Difficult to say but: It's possible that your chest pain could be gastrointestinal related like reflux. At night, it's not uncommon that stomach contents can "reflux" into your throat. Reflux into your food pipe (esophagus) can cause the chest pains you describe. You should review this possibility with your primary care and in the meanwhile consider sleeping with several pillows or place your bed at an incline. ...Read more

Esophagus?: I wonder if you don't have something wrong with your esophagus, the food pipe that connects your mouth to your stomach? These pains frequently occur more often at night, and would be missed if only a chest X-ray and EKG were run. Inflammation of the esophagus can best be determined via an EGD, a scope procedure run by a gastroenterologist. Speak with your doctor. ...Read more
