My Wife is experiencing headache (time frame: gradual onset) (worsened by: psychological stress, during menstruation, skipping meals) (occurred: > 3?
Headache: PMS?: Headaches with stress or low blood sugar are common, and can also occur as pre-menstrual when estrogen levels fall rapidly, causing both emotional reactions (stress) and contractions of some blood vessels, which lead to headaches.

Are chest tightness, tiredness, shortness of breath, and light headedness early, mid, or late asthma attack symptoms?
Not uncommon: Although it was believed that asthma could only start in childhood and in the 60's no one could have allergic asthma developing after age 40, it is clear now that asthma can indeed occur in adulthood. Based on my experience, I estimate that about 25% of the asthma cases develop during adulthood. ...Read more

More information pls: COPD patients typically will produce more sputum or mucus when they cough. Your symptoms may be either but without a history of smoking, asthma is more likely.

Lung Cancer Concern - 33 pk yr smoker. Short of breath, wheezing, sweats, non-stop coughing & phlegm especially in morning. Low dose CT? 47 Y/O.
This is very serious: You need to do whatever it takes to stop smoking now. Otherwise this is your whole future. I doubt you have lung cancer, or that screening saves many lives, but nowadays who gets screened with low-dose CT is politics and you should accept if offered. You may have an acute infection, even pertussis. An antitrypsin level may be in order though with any result smoking cessation is imperative. ...Read more
Clarification: Not currently symptomatic but diagnosis w/viral induced asthma in past. Am I at increased risk for aspergillosis having viral induced asthma?
No: Aspergillosis is not the same as Aspergillus allergy. However there is a form of severe asthma called Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis which is associated with allergy to Aspergillus but only a small % of people with asthma actually develop this condition for reason still not entirely known although genetic predisposition is suspected. This has nothing to do with viral induced asthma. ...Read more
