Atelectasis: Atelectasis describe the condition where the lung has a decrease in volume secondary to an area of lung collapse. It would be difficult to identify a specific cause for focal area of collapse as there can be many causes. Most of the time, small areas of atelectasis cause no symptoms.

Can gastritus make stomach distend/ tight. My stomach is thight 24/7. What can I do. Also would this cause any deep breathing issues?

Lots of reasons...: Have you undergone upper endoscopy to rule out gastric disease (inflammatory or functional)? Do you have underlying irritable bowel syndrome? Is your distress worsened or improved by meals, activity, deep breathing, palpation of ribs? Have you suffered any physical trauma recently to the area? What medications have been tried, ; which have helped? Especially since breathing affected, get checked.

Why does deep breathing cause pain in the chest?

Why does deep breathing cause pain in the chest?

Depends on pain type: Are you talking 'congestion' or sharp pains? Sharp chest pains with deep inspiration are usually due to ribs which are locked down (exhalation position). Inhaling causes the other ribs to rise, but that one is stuck. An osteopathic physician can both listen to lungs and do a good general physical, but can also use her hands to find a stuck rib or vertebra and fix it with gentle manipulation.

Can gerd/pud cause rib and sternal pain? Especially upon deep breathing? Also with a high tbili could the pain be gallbladder related?

Gallbladder: This would be very unusual for GERD to cause these types of symptoms, and it sounds like it would be more likely related to the gallbladder, if the gallbladder is diseased. There are many causes of a high bilirubin. Make sure to follow up with your doctor, and ask if a gallbladder ultrasound and/or referral to a general surgeon is appropriate. Hope this helps!

How many times a day should you do deep breathing for anxiety? And for how long?

How many times a day should you do deep breathing for anxiety? And for how long?

There's more to it..: You can breathe more correctly almost all the time. Shallow is never as good as full and the exhale is what we often get wrong. Completely empty the lungs to remove "old" stuff and make room for refreshing new oxygen. Sometimes 1 or 2 deep out-breaths - even a big groan or shout helps. Try a few cycles of 4 secs nasal inhales, 7 sec hold-ins & 8 sec full, slow pursed lip exhales. Let it be a habit.

What dose it mean if my baby's had loud deep breathing since birth... She is now 3 months?

What dose it mean if my baby's had loud deep breathing since birth... She is now 3 months?

Laryngomalacia: Usually it is due to soft cartilage of the voice box, and or the wind pipe. If that is true, lying the baby on her stomach would improve the noise. You should ask a doctor to check it and not put her on her stomach to sleep unless the doctor tells you to do it. There are other causes of noisy breathing.

Possibilities...: Your discomfort with deep breathing may be musculoskeletal from jogging. There are muscles, cartilage, bone, etc. In the chest wall and any of these structures may have been injured with jogging. Another possibility is exercise-induced bronchospasm. If it is musculoskeletal, it will get better with rest, acetaminophen, etc. If it doesn't, see doctor for diagnosis/treatment of bronchospasm.
