How long does wheezy chest last with hay fever?

Might be asthma: If you have wheezing associated with your hay fever, you may have asthma. A pulmonary function test may be helpful in determining if you have asthma. People with asthma usually notice most of their symptoms when their allergic rhinitis flares up ( hay fever ), or they get a cold. You may be completely without symptoms at other times. ...Read more

My 5 month old baby is coughing, w congested chest. Wheezing. Sudden onset..No fever yet, . What can I give to ease his discomfort?

Supportive care: Keep his room cool, run the humidifier, saline to the nose to clear mucus, frequent drinks. Did the baby choke? Is the baby having trouble breathing. Early care would be recommended if either is yes. No honey or cold medicine is recommended in this age group. ...Read more

Should i seek medical attention wheezing, chest pain that goes around to my back, cough, chills, body aches, fever

Good : Good evening. You sound like you are feeling really miserable. Although this could be a virus, you might also have pneumonia. The chest pain and wheezing are of concern as you may not be exchanging air as well. You also have a cough - don't know if it is productive of sputum or not. Because of the respiratory issues, it would be prudent to take a trip to the er. Take care. ...Read more

Breathing fine and then suddenly get where it seems like my chest is tight and not getting much air though i know I am. No wheezing & no fever.

Panic attack?: This is likely from a panic attack related to anxiety. Another condition may be vocal cord dysfunction in which the throat tightens up when you try to breathe in. If you have no anxiety issue, consult an ENT to document whether you have vocal cord dysfunction or not. ...Read more

I have congested chest and wheezing and a mild fever. Do u think Robitussin (guaifenesin) is a good choice?

I have congested chest and wheezing and a mild fever. Do u think Robitussin (guaifenesin) is a good choice?

Depends: I did not read coughing as part of your malady and the medication you mention is mainly an anti-tussive or cough suppressant. Wheezing is not a symptom to dismiss and may be a sign of something more going on, a respiratory infection or an asthmatic response. Best to have md consulted. Good luck. ...Read more

I had the flu with a fever and bad cough, went to Dr who treated me but now I STILL have the cough accompanied with wheezing in my chest. Pneumonia?

I had the flu with a fever and bad cough, went to Dr who treated me but now I STILL have the cough accompanied with wheezing in my chest. Pneumonia?

Not likely: The cough and wheezing after the flu (or any viral cold) can last up to 28 days and still be normal. If you are coughing up thick dark phlegm or still have a fever of 100.4 (38c) or higher after a week from initial onset then you should see a doctor. Otherwise just give it time. ...Read more

I have astma and I'm shortness of breath and I have hay fever I've had a chest X-ray it come back all clear what can I have to help me?

I have astma and I'm shortness of breath and I have hay fever I've had a chest X-ray it come back all clear what can I have to help me?

See allergist: Chest x-ray cannot diagnose asthma although the presence of air trapping may be suggestive. If your family doctor can't help you, you will need to see an allergist. That you have hay fever points to allergy as the likely mechanism for your asthma as well. Rx options include avoidance, medications, and/or allergy shots. ...Read more

I suffered from hay fever as a child and as an adult chose to smoke mugwort and am now (2 hrs later) feeling short of breath with a very tight chest.

I suffered from hay fever as a child and as an adult chose to smoke mugwort and am now (2 hrs later) feeling short of breath with a very tight chest.

See doctor: When one has hay fever , one has a higher risk in developing asthma. I don't know much about smoking mugwort but combustive products tend to irritate the lungs even if you don't have asthma. In addition, there may be contaminants in the product. The obvious thing is for you to stop smoking. If the problem persists, check with your doctor or get to the ER. ...Read more

Sounds viral: It sounds like a viral infection to me. Push fluids, rest, blend diet. If better, gradually return to normal routine. If no better or doing worse, call your doc. I'd give you another 48-72 hours to figure it out. ...Read more

Mgt: I would suggest another visit with your PCP. You may need to use an inhaled steroid combined with Albuterol/serevent more often or they may increase the dose of the inhaled steroid. They will also assess you for the use of oral steroids. Another chest Radiograph may be obtained at that time. ...Read more

Should I go to the ER? Mild fever 5 days chest and sinus congestion, deep cough and wheezing. Lightheaded with headache and body aches

Primary Care: Your primary care provider is likely a better choice for non life-threatening illness. ER doctors are trained to work quickly and efficiently in situations where the patient's life is at risk, so you are more likely to be exposed to tests that involve radiation or risk of false-positive results. Of course if you are struggling to breath, the ER is appropriate. ...Read more
