Can asthma cause any kind of body aches? My shoulders my back hurt and my chest a lil. Also, have cervical neck problems can it be from that?
Not usually: Some patients may have chest "tightness" or a vague aching pain especially during a flare up, but it isn't likely that your asthma is causing other joint problems. There are however other lung diseases that are associated with joint priblems, and they may "look like" asthma. You would need more evaluation to know if this is the case, but frankly it's more likely that they are unrelated. ...Read more
