Had an exam lately?: Being the worrier that i am, I am always concerned when people mention difficulty breathing. Your weight and being male may be risk factors for heart disease. Others are smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, a family history of heart trouble, and inactivity. Any of these apply? Please get to your doctor for a full physical. Likely, you'll find the information reassuring. But get checked. ...Read more

Is it normal that new born baby breath heavily during night?

Is it normal that new born baby breath heavily during night?

Hard to say: In early weeks, babies can go though a transition pattern called periodic breathing. This is the system figuring out how fast/deep to breathe during the varying states.(sleep/rest/feed/active) It can be fast panting or s;ow deep, there can be a short pause up to 10 sec. By 6 weeks this is usually less noticeable, but occasional pauses can remain. If you think your doc is clueless,get a 2nd opinion ...Read more

I pulled my ribs picking up heavy things. How long does it, take to breathe normal?

I pulled my ribs picking up heavy things. How long does it, take to breathe normal?

Maybe several weeks: Ribs are used when we breath, so each breath can cause discomfort with a rib injury. It can take anywhere from 3-6 weeks for a rib to heal. If the pain persists, see a dr. As an x-ray may be needed to see if you suffered a fracture of you rib, which can take longer to heal than a "pull or sprain." nsaids like Ibuprofen (if no allergy) can help as well. Best wishes. ...Read more

Had colonoscopy today w/heavy sedation. Feel like I'm breathing a little heavy or cant get a good full breathe. Normal after sedation?

Heavy breathing: interesting that you had a colonoscopy at such a young age. Were you having breathing problems before?
I would go to the emergency department and be evaluated. Your problems could be related to the procedure but also related to why you had the procedure. Do not wait and ignore it. ...Read more

Deconditioning: Most likely, if you have not been exercising for a while, you have become deconditioned. It will take some time for your body to adjust to exercise. Unless you are coughing or have other symptoms of exercise-induced asthma, I would encourage you to keep up the efforts. Start for 15 minutes per session, & gradually increase the number of sessions & duration to 30 min to get best results. Keep at it ...Read more

I do a 45 minute brisk walk and don't feel any pain or shirt breath but when I climb stair or lift any weight or any other physical thing I feel tired but become normal in just one minute ?

Burst vs. sustained.: Your walk is a prolonged, lower-level sustained activity, which is generally more tolerable than a quicker, or more intense burst of higher-level activity, such as walking up stairs or lifting heavy objects. But your response and recovery to this all sounds OK. ...Read more

Want to reduce my weight but when I do exercise , my heart pumps so high tht even i can't take normal breathe.. My condition bcme so bad :(?

Exercise: You are probably overdoing it. You need to start slowly and build up slowly. Try walking for a half hour at a time comfortably and slowly build up distance increasing no more frequently than every 2 weeks. Also get checked by your doc to be sure no problems interfering. ...Read more

25wks pregnant. Is it normal to breathe heavier? I havnt noticed it bt a copule of friends hav pointed it out &my boyfriend complains wen im sleeping

25wks pregnant. Is it normal to breathe heavier? I havnt noticed it bt a copule of friends hav pointed it out &my boyfriend complains wen im sleeping

Probably not: At 25 weeks the uterine enlargement is seldom sufficient to limit expansion of the diaphragm downwards with inspiration. If, however, people have noticed your breathing pattern changing, it would be wise to see your obstetrician and be evaluated, or your family doctor. Good luck and hope you have a great baby. ...Read more

See physician: Asthma can present like this, rather than with wheezing. A number of lung problems can have only a dry cough as you do. See your physician. An evaluation, including breathing tests and a chest X-ray can get to the root of the problem and proper treatment. ...Read more
