Seek treatment: At your age, it is not normal to have multiple respiratory infections. Your current symptoms of chest tightness and dyspnea may be related to asthma or bronchitis. Pneumonia would cause a fever. See your primary physician to determine the reason for multiple infections and to prescribe medications to reduce the irritation of your airways. ...Read more

Have c.o.p.d 50yrs why is it times I have normal walking without getting out of breath other days I cant walk 10 steps & cant breath is it my airways?

Most likely: Depending on the activity you are performing might be your endurance to tolerate it and how your airways respond. It also depends on how advanced is your lung condition. If the COPD is in early stages you might still have some adequate capacity to tolerate exercise. If the condition keeps progressing you might notice how your endurance starts declining with time. If you smoke stop to avoid worsening. ...Read more

Because of these panic attack when I lay down I go all dizzy and then cant breath again someone please tell me what to do??

Because of these panic attack when I lay down I go all dizzy and then cant breath again someone please tell me what to do??

Panic attacks.: If you can find a quiet place - do so. Breath in slowly & deeply through your nostrils. Fill your lungs with air (but not to the point of discomfort). Hold for a count of five then slowly begin to exhale through an open mouth. Repeat at least 12 times, longer if you need to. If you haven't been assessed for your panic/ anxiety - that would be prudent. Anxiety is no fun BUT it is treatable. ...Read more

May be: You may have allergy but then pregnancy itself is associated with vasomotor rhinitis presumably due to hormone changes. Talk to your doctor to sort out what the cause is since you need all the sleep you can get. In the meanwhile, try Breathright nasal strip and perhaps on a wedge with 4-6 inches of elevation to see if either helps ...Read more

Cant breath well into my right nostril. Had a surgery for it but the surgical structure collapsed and now it feels even more blocked. What can I do?

Cant breath well into my right nostril. Had a surgery for it but the surgical structure collapsed and now it feels even more blocked. What can I do?

My suggestion: Return to your surgeon or find a surgeon confident and experienced in revision nasal surgery. The nasal framework can always be rebuilt, unless there is signficant injury to the overlying skin. Make certain that the surgeon examines all the possible causes of nasal obstruction - deviated septum, crooked nose, aging/collapsing nasal cartilages, & poor tip support. In the meantime, try a nasal strip. ...Read more
