Newborn Wheezing During Feeding
See the doctor: The wheezing noise babies make can come from the upper airway tract (nose, back of throat) or from the lower airway tract (lungs). In a small child, it is important for a physician to determine where the noise is coming from, as that determines how serious it may be and what may be a possible treatment. In a newborn, I would suggest having them seen soon. ...Read more

Is wheezing after giving formula normal I give her formula everyday and after I am done feeding her she has this wheezing sound
Wheezing: Wheezing after feeding is not necessarily normal. You should call your child's doctor to discuss. They may want you to bring her in and feed her in the office so that they can examine her while she is making the noise. If you think that she is having difficulty breathing, turning blue, or going limp, you need to call your doctor immediately or take her to the emergency room. ...Read more

See your doctor: Sounds of wheezing during feeding are very concerning for something called aspiration- where the formula is going to his lungs instead of his stomach. Please see your doctor as soon as possible and they may do something called a swallow study to see if there is aspiration or not. ...Read more

Worried, but ok: It sounds most likely to be a respiratory virus. This should hit it's peak around 3-5 days, with cough and congestion going away after 10-14 days. Watch for fever over 102.5, poor urine output, lethargy, irritability, breathing over 40/min, difficulty breathing with stomach and neck muscle use, or wheezing. If those develop, bring him in. ...Read more

I started coughing non stop when im trying to sleep last night and wheezing. But im not coughing during the day. Wht could be the cause?
GERD: Coughing with wheezing at night can sometimes be caused by silent reflux. You need not have heartburn symptoms to have this be the case. Allergies can also cause this sometimes; perhaps something in your room (pillows, blankets, etc). See your doctor to be examined and make sure nothing else is going on and then to treat this properly. ...Read more

Two common things..: It is possible that either you are suffering of acid reflux or post nasal drip. Both conditions can cause reactive airways which is manifested with wheezing you are describing when you lay down. It is recommended to try to elevate your head at least 30 degrees when in bed. If having stomach issues try to avoid irritants in your food and try anti acid If nasal congestion inhaled steroids can help. ...Read more
I had a few hours of exercise. I didn't feel anything wrong during but after I felt a wheeze in my breath and shortness of breath. First occurrence?
Bronchoconstriction: Your symptoms are consistent exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (aka exercise-induced asthma). This does not mean you necessarily have asthma. A major goal is to ensure that exercise is not avoided. As your cardiovascular condition improves this may resolve. It it persists or worsens you should see physician for possible medications/inhalers to use and determine need for further testing. ...Read more
I'm coughing violently and its really mucusy. It hurts to breath and I'm also wheezing a bit during the cough. What could be wrong?
I'm having shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing only during the evenings before going to bed. This came on suddenly about a week ago.
Narrowing of airways: Asthma is caused by spasm in the small airways in the lungs the wheezing is like a whistling sound that occurs when you try to push air through an area of spasm that is too tight to allow normal flow. Think of it like when you whistle, you force air past an obstructed opening and creat turbulance that maks the sound. Whistles are not a vocal cord sound. ...Read more

Asthma vs. Rad my son has cough variant asthma, he never wheezes during an attack, just coughs violently and uncontrolably. He recently has had this cough for the past week that he just can't shake. It get really bad in the first thing in mornings and at
Kids: Kids do not have to wheeze to have asthma, as you have indicated that your son has cough variant asthma. The Flovent and ventolin are appropriate management from your physician. I am not sure what the urgent care physician was treating with the amoxicillin. Antibiotics are not used to treat wheezing or cough variant asthma or rad (simply meaning the airways react/narrow to stimulus such as infections, exercise, or allergies). Was the physician concerned about a bacterial infection? In that case the antibiotic would be appropriate. ...Read more

Is it possible to have normal o2 sats during an asthma attack? What do o2 sats look like during anaphylaxis? What could wheezing w/normal o2 sats be?
One at a time please: Yes, it's possible to have normal o2 sats during a mild asthma attack. The o2 sats during an anaphylactic reaction will get worse as the reaction progresses, unless it's stopped by appropriate medical care. Wheezing with normal o2 sats happens when for many reasons: could be mild bronchiolitis/bronchitis, mild asthma, a foreign body in the airway, could be something else mistaken for wheezing. ...Read more

Very dizzy during pfts. 5 min after 1 dose of methacholine, got wheezing hyperventilated. Got 2l o2 via nc which helped. No neb was needed. Why the sob?
Methacholine: Methacholine is a chemical used in pfts to unmask asthmatics who's testing is equivocal. As such, it is inhaled and intended to cause constriction of the bronchioles or smaller passages in your lungs. When this happens you feel short of breadth and may wheeze. This may be a positive result and indicate you have asthma or your lungs are irritable from something else, such as a virus or allergy. ...Read more
Should we start ventolin nebulization during streptococcal tonsillitis and cough (if wheezing starts) for a child around 4?
No: Ventoline has no effect on the tonsils nor the swelling in that area. It may cause increased heart rate and other unpleasant side effects. If the child has reactive airway disease and gets ventoline as part of his treatment, then he should follow treatment plan outlined by his doctor for acute exacerbations of his symptoms. ...Read more
I have difficulty breathing (shortness of breath) along with coughing and wheezing sound during winter season especially night time.
Asthma?: If this is ongoing, my first step would be to rule out asthma. Corticosteroids produced by the body wax and wane depending on circadian rhythm, which results in frequent nighttime symptoms for asthmatics. Shortness of breath, chest tightness, coughing are typical. Primary care provider, Allergy/Immunology specialist, or Pulmonologist are good places to start. ...Read more
