I find myself wheezing when I exhale fast, what's going on?

Airway obstruction: Wheezing is the musical sound created when air is rushing through a narrowed airway. When wheezing occurs on expiration, this is a very common symptom of asthma or copd. This may be accompanied by cough, shortness of breath or chest tightness if it is asthma. Less common causes of wheezing that are serious are heart failure, foreign body or tumors in the airway. ...Read more

From last 6 months I am experiencing sudden cough with wheezing sound everyday which lasts for 20 minutes and go away. What can it be?

Sinus drip?: Good evening, sanderaika
sudden cough with a wheezing is likely due to a sinus drip triggering a reactivity of the airway. When anything, including the discharge from the sinuses enters the airway, the tubes try to shrink in order to keep the secretions from entering, which cause wheezing, and a sudden cough expels the drip that already found its way in. Taking care of the sinus drip will be good. ...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

Wheeze at the end of a very deep inhale what causes it? Also had a cold last week was left with a bad cough wich is slowly starting to go away.

Wheeze: After a bad cold the airways can constrict (get smaller) or spasm - this can cause a wheeze when you exhale or let your breath out. It should resolve if you do not have a history of asthma. You can take some magnesium glycinate from the health food store and this might help to relax your airway. We use this treatment in the emergency room and hospital. ...Read more

Play it safe: Exercise causes a release of Lactic Acid which can cause your heart to race if you have panic disorder. About one third of panic patients respond to exercise in this way. I would still recommend a visit to a cardiologist to make sure the problem is not cardiac in origin. ...Read more

Tough diagnosis: Wheezing is always difficult to categorize in children. Is it true Asthma, or allergic type asthma or severe bronchitis, bronchopneumonia. If it has happened recurrently, it's best to keep the child on treatment. This helps to prevent long lasting lung damage. Should your child outgrow the asthma, then great. Some asthmatics prefer dry climates and others prefer the coastal climates ...Read more

Can reflux cause wheezing? Peak flow 600. Albuterol doesn't seem to make it go away, just reduces the volume a little. X rays okay. Lungs sound clear.

Reflux & wheeze.: With GERD, especially with LPR, the refluxate can ascend from the esophagus into the pharynx, and then down into the airway causing inflammation and, eventually, a wheeze. It is possible, and we tend to see this in situations where optimal treatment for asthma is still not helping the breathing or wheezing. Anti-reflux medications would tend to help. ...Read more

Seasonal wheezing: Is a form of asthma, which if left untreated, can lead to frequent infections of the lungs. Allergic rhinitis often accompanies this, and would likely also require management.

Recurs? Get checked: You may be having palpitations - heart beats whose intensity or rhythm cause you to have symptoms. You did not give your age, so I cannot speculate on causes. But if this is not an isolated incident, then you should be seen by your primary clinician or maybe a cardiologist in case you have an underlying heart disorder. ...Read more
