Just moved/got a cat: itchy/burning lungs/throat, shortness of breath, hard to breathe at night- tightness in chest daily. No known allergies. Cause?
Cat allergy: Please get retested for cat allergy . You can do pin prick or the blood method. I suspect it will be positive when you check it. Most doctors would say remove the cat while most patients will reply remove the doctor. If you keep the cat you will need to learn avoidance measures like not sleeping with it in your room and keeping the cat litter and stuff in a separate room of the house. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Auscultation and sp02 normal. Good X-ray w/in last month. Spirometry 2day. Why more dyspnea a week after quitting than ever while smoking? Throat itchy & left lung feels numb. 24/7, unlike w/ panic.
More sensitive.: It could be that your lungs are more sensitive due to the cessation of smoking and they've opened up more, this letting in particles that trigger a response. It also could be that you've developed allergies to air particles, etc.. Your reflux and anxiety might also contribute.

I have terrible chest congestion with a itchy cough in my lungs. I am on a z-pac. How long does it usually take to clear up?
Doctor can re-check: After starting antibiotics, things should be better each day after the first 2 days. Otherwise, the doctor can re-check to see if a different antibiotic or a longer course of antibiotics is needed. Sometimes asthma meds such as inhalers and anti-inflammatories like singulair (montelukast) or Prednisone are also needed. If doing well, a mild residual cough can be around for a couple of weeks, improving daily. ...Read more
