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

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.

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?

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?

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.

Why do asthmatics wheeze when they breath?

With asthma you frequently can hear many tones at once. Areas without air flow don't make noise. ...Read more

I am not able to breath deep. I feel smthing wheezing in my chest region. Few weeks before I had pain in my leftarmpit. (chronic over masturbator)?

Anxiety?: First tell us whether the wheezing occurs when you are breathing in or breathing out? Assuming that you are under 40 (the masturbation factor) and thus the problem appears to be from anxiety or stress. A condition known as vocal cord dysfunction (problem getting enough air) for which ENT consult may be helpful. Don't see any link between left armpit pain & your breathing problem. ...Read more

I been wheezing and have no allergies, its hard for me to breathe and it lasts about 15mins and it gets worse everytime it happens. What's wrong?

Wheezing 'in': Asthma typically causes wheezing when you brerath out, if you are wheezing when you breath in, then you have inspiratory stridor. A frequently mis-diagnosed cause of wheezing is vocal cord dysfunction syndrome which may be triggered by acid reflux. If you notice reflux, taking otc ppi-meds might help (omeprazole). Wheezing out, if caused by asthma needs an inhaler as a rescue medication (albuterol. ...Read more

I had a few hours of exercise. I didn't feel anything wrong during but after I felt a wheeze in my breath and shortness of breath. First occurrence?

Bronchoconstriction: Your symptoms are consistent exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (aka exercise-induced asthma). This does not mean you necessarily have asthma. A major goal is to ensure that exercise is not avoided. As your cardiovascular condition improves this may resolve. It it persists or worsens you should see physician for possible medications/inhalers to use and determine need for further testing. ...Read more

Can a person catch something from a cat I know this sounds silly, I've had a cat for about six months. He was a found cat. He seems very happy and laid back but seems to have a constant wheeze when he breathes. He's big, maybe even a little overweight. I

Yes: Toxoplasmosis is transmitted from cats. Also cat scratch fever. Cats catch and kill mice/carry them in their mouth. Mice carry leptospirosis. You can get rabies from a cat. There are probably other diseases too - that said, I love cats and keep them around. We all have to die sometime. ...Read more
