Can you give simple answer to where are bronchial tubes?

Airways

Photo_003
The bronchial tubes are part of the airway tree in your chest. The windpipe (trachea) divides into 2 main bronchi (left & right). Then, there are multiple divisions of these tubes to make up the airway tree. The tubes end in air sacs where oxygen & carbon dioxide are exchanged.

Steroids

Inflammation of the bronchial tubes is the hallmark of someone with persistent asthma. The best treatment to control the underlying inflammation is use of an inhaled steroid on a daily basis. Once under better control, the medication can be decreased to achieve the lowest effective dose.

How long will I be tired from using symbicort for two 1/2 weeks for having inflamed bronchial tubes?

Not sure

Oral_thrush
I understand you are using Symbicort a combination of long acting bronchodilator and an inhaled corticosteroid . Most of the side effects are due to the local effects of these medicines. Oral thrush, hoarse voice , rarely tremors ( transient) are the most well known and described side effects. Please talk to your doctor to see if the tiredness is actually related to your usage of Symbicort .

Dr. Jack Mutnick answered:

Wheezing especially at night. I can feel it deep in the lungs. Had ADVAIR in the past. Could this be restrictive bronchial tubes?

Breathing issues

Chest-lung
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory process in the lungs with classic symptoms of cough, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness. See your doctor for testing since wheeze can also be due to other factors.

Dr. Amy Tezza answered:

Can PND cause acute bronchitis or bronchitis like symptoms? I read that it can drip down into your bronchial tubes resulting in this.

Yes

Bronchitis
Post nasal drainage generally indicates fluid coming from your sinuses and draining down the back of your throat. It can be caused by infection or allergy and can definitely cause bronchial irritation and cough. Sometimes flushing out your sinuses like with a Neti pot can help; if allergies are involved a steroid nasal spray can decrease the drainage. Fever or bad odor might indicate an infection
