Coughing, Wheezing And Dizzy headed for about 2 weeks now?

Multiple things...: It would be difficult to diagnose without more information and a physical. However, in the absence of fever and other signs of infection, it could be worsening seasonal allergies versus the onset of asthma... or it could be a continuum of both. You can try over the counter allergy meds first but I'd still go to your doc. ...Read more

Chest pain. Feeling sick. Being sick. Cold sweat. Dizzy. Feeling light headed. Wheezing. Coughing. Shortness of breath feeling a bad sensation?

Cough: This is likely the common cold. Give it time and it will resolve. Take some tylenol (acetaminophen) and get plenty of rest. Do not forget about drinking enough fluid. If you are wheezing you may need to see your doctor and get a chest x-ray to rule out a pneumonia. The doctor can also give you a bronchodilator to make your breathing easier and open up the bronchi of the lungs. Good luck. Feel better. ...Read more

Wasp sting yesterday upper R arm, area very red/swollen/itchy today (3in diam), some wheezing, SOB, dizziness this AM - delayed anaphylaxis?

Wasp sting yesterday upper R arm, area very red/swollen/itchy today (3in diam), some wheezing, SOB, dizziness this AM - delayed anaphylaxis?

Rare but possible: It is exceedingly rare, but not unheard of, to have delayed anaphylaxis to a sting, and the mechanism, of course, is unexplainable (theoretically, perhaps, T-cell mediated anaphylaxis to peptide components).
Regardless, you should be seen urgently for a proper assessment of your airway, and treatment as indicated. A referral to allergist should be the next step. ...Read more

Very dizzy during pfts. 5 min after 1 dose of methacholine, got wheezing hyperventilated. Got 2l o2 via nc which helped. No neb was needed. Why the sob?

Methacholine: Methacholine is a chemical used in pfts to unmask asthmatics who's testing is equivocal. As such, it is inhaled and intended to cause constriction of the bronchioles or smaller passages in your lungs. When this happens you feel short of breadth and may wheeze. This may be a positive result and indicate you have asthma or your lungs are irritable from something else, such as a virus or allergy. ...Read more

Was on predislone for 7d 40m for asthma. Wheezing is gone now have violent cough dizzy when stand up weak If I don't grab on to something will faint??

Get rechecked: It is hard to tell if you are not wheezing because your asthma has resolved or its worse and you are not making a lot of noise. That would make speaking standing walking difficult. The cough can also be a sign of bronchospasm. either get to your MD or the ER asap ...Read more

Trouble breathing while laying down and dizziness. Once sitting up it begins to feel better but continue wheezing and feeling dizzy for an hour after?

Trouble breathing while laying down and dizziness. Once sitting up it begins to feel better but continue wheezing and feeling dizzy for an hour after?

Asthma: Sounds an awful lot like asthma to me - often there is dust or bed mites, or other foreign proteins in bedroom air that triggers an attack. You should carefully wash all your bed linens, bed clothes, but also dust, remove old reading materials, wash your drapes, vacuum under the bed etc. Don't use scented cleaner. An inhaler medication may be indicated, best obtained from your family doc. ...Read more

Tone It Down A Bit!!: That's called "run valde velox" or, in English, "running your ass off." So either you were training hard or very out of shape. Which was it? Those are symptoms of oxygen defecit ("debt"), blowing off carbon dioxide (hypocarbia), and your mucus glands going wild ("parasympathetic" nerves). I'm surprised you didn't throw-up! You're young so in the long run whatever you are trying will be a good thing ...Read more

Prescription time?: Sounds like your allergies are to the point where you would benefit from treatment. If you are taking OTC allergy medication you should probably talk to your doctor about a prescription. If not you can start with one of the OTC's like Claritin (loratadine) or Zyrtec (cetirizine). Either way, you would benefit from seeing a doctor to get your symptoms under control. ...Read more

Burning throat and hoarseness the past two days. Went to ER the past two evenings. Also had no voice the second day and wheezing. Wheezing today too with a nauseous, vomit, headache, dizziness and not speaking straight. Constant temp of 95.2?

ToWheezeOrNot2Wheeze: Man, you got it baaad! Sounds like the flu or a flu-like illness. If they didn't suspect anything worse after two ER visits, as long as the ERs weren't located in a malpractice zone, you should get over it. Two things, however: if breathing steam in the shower doesn't help the wheezing, you may need a medication. Same for the goofy speaking if it gets worse, so watch those carefully and see a doc. ...Read more

Yes,: Yes, you can have bronchitis without wheezing. Bronchitis means that the "bronchioles", the smaller tubes in your lungs, are inflammed. That occurs with viral or bacterial conditions. If your symptoms are worsening, or if you have fever, worsening cough, or any shortness of breath, you will have to be seen again immediately for a re-evaluation. ...Read more
