Cold Air Causes Pain
My sister slept with the AC on & thinks the cold air has caused the chest pain she's experiencing. She described the pain as a "tightness" under her right breast. Only felt when bending or twisting?
Not a problem: Hundreds of millions of people shower in the winter and then go out to take on the world. A shower before going outdoors does not cause any medical problems merely because it's cold outdoors. Keep clean, stay healthy, and enjoy that refreshing cold winter air (but avoid people who are coughing and sniffling, because they'll get you sick). ...Read more

Yawning a lot through out the day. Sometimes back to back. Would waking up multiple times mid night cause this? Can cold air in my office cause it?
Yawning: Yawning normally indicates sleepiness. It may occur when you are tired or otherwise do not have enough sleep. Waking up many times at night may cause you to feel sleepy the next day or so. Cold air should not make you yawn more. People with sleep apnea wake up many times at night, snore, yawn and fall asleep quickly. ...Read more
Can cold air, wind,or air dampness cause pneumonia or a cold? If I have a cold&I slept without clothes on for 30 minutes or so, could I get pneumonia?
Little effect: Pneumonia requires a susceptible body and the "correct" organism. One half hour of cold is unlikely to provide such conditions even in the presence of an upper respiratory infection (a cold). While you might get pneumonia even in these circumstances, it would almost certainly not be caused by the naked cold exposure. ...Read more
Hi, I have a friend of mine with a twitching right cheek. What causes it? Can cold air blowing from an a/c to the face be a cause? Thanks.
Perhaps these?: The a/c has nothing to do with this. There may be hemifacial spasm, facial myokymia, a facial tic, a habitual twitch, a prior bell's palsy with aberrant nerve regrowth causing facial dyskinesia. Best way to find out, see a neurologist or an ENT specialist, and get opinion. ...Read more

Can cold air cause breathlessness without asthma? It's my trigger but inhalers barely help! (Ventolin, plus Clenil and Serevent (salmeterol) twice a day)
Consider other cause: Cold air exposure is a common trigger. Could be undiagnosed/improperly treated asthma or another condition that mimics asthma like vocal cord dysfunction. Would suggest seeing specialist for further workup and evaluation. An allergist would be someone good to talk to. ...Read more

Cold Urticaria: 21 year old lady with cold urticaria of unknown duration. Studies show that cold urticaria is more common in young adults and usually resolves within a few years. The best way to prevent cold urticaria is to avoid sudden changes in temperature. You can also take over the counter antihistamines such as levocetirizine (Xyzal) before exposing yourself to cold weather, and dress warm. Good luck. ...Read more
