Could burning incense cause you to wheeze when you breathe?

Could burning incense cause you to wheeze when you breathe?

Yes: Consider the odor you smell when the incense is burning a signal that something is getting into your nose & likely your lungs in the process. Some smells, perfumes, vapors, etc will trigger a natural protective mechanism in the lung. This process narrows the airways to prevent the vapor (or toxic agent) from getting to sensitive lung tissues. If you wheeze with incense, avoid it before u end up in er. ...Read more

Urg:constant coughing spasms:5 min:mildly s.O.B afterwards:slight wheeze when trying to breathe:zestoretic (htn)\u003e6 months:new problem \u003c1 month:cause?

Stop Zestoretic (lisinopril and hydrocholorthiazide): Women of child bearing age shouldn't use zestoretic (lisinopril and hydrocholorthiazide) as first line therapy since it's harmful in pregnancy and absolutely contraindicated. Moreover, it can cause cough. It sounds like you have asthma as well. Can you please help me understand your use of u003e6 and u003c1. I googled them and got bizarre returns. ...Read more

Does Lpr cause you to aspirate some food everytime you eat?? after eating if I take a really deep breath I hear a little wheeze?

LPR: No, this condition does not normally cause you to aspirate, unless there was so much inflammation and pain that you really can't swallow in a coordinated fashion. Hearing a little wheeze after eating does not necessarily mean you are aspirating. It could be intrinsic problems with your lungs- mild asthma. Go see your primary MD and possibly an ENT if not already done. ...Read more

I suffer from Asthma and currently have very thick mucus in my air ways which causes a wheezing sound when I breathe, please suggest some antibiotic?

I suffer from Asthma and currently have very thick mucus in my air ways which causes a wheezing sound when I breathe, please suggest some antibiotic?

Asthma treatment: 23 year old male with asthma and wheezing, complaining of thick mucus. Thick mucus could be a sign of an infection which in turn makes asthma symptoms worse and prolonged. Asthma is a disease that requires prescription therapies like albuterol and inhaled corticosteroids. I wouldn't recommend an antibiotic unless you are seen by a doctor. Often, asthma and infection are confused, needs an exam. ...Read more

Does Lpr (silent reflux) cause lung cancer and how likely is it? If I take quick deep breathes after eating I hear a little wheeze no allergies too

Does Lpr (silent reflux) cause lung cancer and how likely is it? If I take quick deep breathes after eating I hear a little wheeze no allergies too

No: LPR does not cause lung cancer. Unless the acidity of the reflux is quite high (<3.9 pH), it probably would not increase the risk for esophageal cancer either. Do realize that reflux can worsen asthma symptoms and aspiration of stomach content can lead to infection in the lung. By the way, is the wheezing associated with breathing problem? Does it occur when breathing in or breathing out? ...Read more

I'm not a everyday oxygen person, but lately I have been getting out of breathe fast when I take off the oxygen I start to wheeze y is this?

I'm not a everyday oxygen person, but lately I have been getting out of breathe fast when I take off the oxygen I start to wheeze y is this?

Asthma: In general, the most common causes of shortness of breath are either heart disease or lung disease. Although there are many reasons for a person to wheeze, with your history of asthma it may just be your asthma flaring up especially as the season begins to change from summer to fall. I think the bigger question is why are you requiring oxygen in the first place? Talk to your doctor about this. ...Read more

I have a wheeze when exhaling that won't go with inhalers. Peak flow is still normal, is this worrying? It's only a slight wheeze at the end of breath

Don't panic: It is most likely just a little residual pulmonary inflammation...It could be due to an environmental allergen. ..Like smoking, or being in or near a smoking area.
Best advice is to go see your family doc for a check-up...Especially if it is bothering you... ...Read more

Why do asthmatics wheeze when they breath?

Turbulence: It's a combination of bronchoconstriction, edema, and excess mucus that partially block small airways causing whistling sounds at various tones depending on airway diameter and force of exhalation.
