Could Allergy Induced Asthma Turn In Copd
COPD may include chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. Chronic bronchitis is the production of increased mucus caused by inflammation. Bronchitis is considered chronic if you cough and produce excess mucus most days for three months in a year, two years in a row. Emphysema is a disease that damages the air sacs and/or the smallest breathing tubes in the lungs. ...Read more

Occasionally when allergy is high i get mild SOB and some light wheezing. Asmanex VS. Singulair (montelukast). Which one is better to treat Allergy induced Asthma.
Depends : Montelukast (Singulair (montelukast)) works well in some patients, but inhaled steroids (Asmanex is one of several) are more reliably effective, in general. Singulair (montelukast) has the advantage of helping nasal and eye allergies, too. Always start with a emergency inhaler like albuterol first.

Can certain foods cause a full-blown asthma attack; not, however an Ige-mediated reaction. Mostly just shortness of breath that is asthma-like?
Unlikely: This would be unlikely unless there is some type of aspiration event. When there is aspiration of liquid food we have a reflex to shut off the upper airway. This usually results in difficulty breathing in, coughing, talking and respiratory distress. It would not last as long as a typical asthma attach. Acid reflux can give a sensation of shortness of breath ...Read more
Yes: About 60% of asthma is "allergic asthma." this is asthma that can be aggravated by environmental allergies (e.g. Dust mite or cat dander or ragweed).

Can pnd cause acute bronchitis or bronchitis like symptoms? I read that it can drip down into your bronchial tubes resulting in this.
Sinobronchial synd: Yes, it is thought that post-nasal drainage or drip can flow from the back of the nose to the airway through the pharynx. The pharynx is a very complex area where the air you breath and everything you swallow have to cross. Pnd can get to the trachea. Many times is causes throat clearing and cough, but I have certainly see patient develop bronchitis from colds or other upper respiratory illness. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: If you are coughing very hard, have increased mucous that is often associated with asthma, or if you are wheezing and struggling for air and are using a lot of energy and excessory muscles to get a breath and you are thus not getting good gas exchange in your lungs and retaining co2, these could all lead to vomiting. ...Read more
