Breathing issue.: This could be a number of things. Asthma comes to mind, with shortness of breath being triggered by the coldness of the air, or by irritants or pollutants in the air, or by exertion or activity. Could be allergic rhinitis with a post-nasal drip, which can interestingly cause a cough, breathing trouble and wheeze at times. Do you smoke? Because this could be related to smoking as well.

4 half baby persistent cough since first immunisation occasionally wheezing but getting more persistent cough like mucus filled 2 courses antibiotics?

Cough & wheezing: Cough and wheezing in babies are usually caused by respiratory viruses that don't need antibiotics. A nebulizer treatment can be tried. Some bad viruses like RSV cause cough that persist for a while during recovery. Maybe you need a second opinion on how to treat your baby's condition.

Need to be seen!: An md needs to see you clinically and do some cutlers to see if anything is growing. If you had many times tonsillitis this is what you can get and see. Go see an ENT specialist.

It's difficult: To make diagnosis here. You still will need lung studies, to tell us what is wrong. We need to examine you. The one who can do it best is your own doctor. Go to your doctor, tell all your symptoms honestly and you can have all the tests needed including exercise test to see why you have problem. Good luck.

My 4 months old has occasional inspiratory wheezing after eating what could it be?

My 4 months old has occasional inspiratory wheezing after eating what could it be?

Swallowing study: I agree that there are a number of possibilities. In addition to anatomic narrowing of the airway which is worsened during eating, I would also consider aspiration of mouth or gastric contents. A retained foreign body in the airway is also possible. Your physician may order a swallowing study in conjunction with speech therapy.

Mild asthma, occasional nighttime wheezing given dulera (formoterol and mometasone). Put on propanolol for migraines. Med interaction. A better med for longterm asthma treatment?

Mgt: You may want to consider using an inhaled steroid and the Albuterol as needed if these medications control your asthma. You can also take an oral steroid for a short period of time. The combination medication has a longer acting medication. A follow up appointment: healthtap. Com/DosanjhMD Code: NCYHPZ

Have not been sick, but feel a weird wheeze/gurgle in my left side occasionally when breathing in. Dr said my lungs sou d clear. What could it be?

Wheeze: You may have some mild mucus accumulation or mild intermittent spasm in a bronchial tube on that side that wasn't present when you were examined. If symptoms persist or worsen I recommend reexamination by your physician but your symptoms are mild and may resolve spontaneously.

Wheezing while laying down. Occasionally bottom of rib on right side hurts. Can't take deep breath. My dr said my lungs sound fine though.?

Wheezing while laying down. Occasionally bottom of rib on right side hurts. Can't take deep breath. My dr said my lungs sound fine though.?

Could be the ribs...: Ribs can hurt at the cartilage. The ribs actually move at the cartilage. There are joints where different bones meet. Inflammation (irritation, tenderness, pain) there is called costochondritis. For that, Motrin or advil (ibuprofen) can help. If symptoms persist, then the doctor can do a re-evaluation to look at the x-rays, the lungs, the liver, the gall bladder, and other organs in that area.

Occasionally when allergy is high I get mild SOB and some light wheezing. Asmanex VS. Singulair (montelukast). Which one is better to treat Allergy induced Asthma.

Occasionally when allergy is high I get mild SOB and some light wheezing. Asmanex VS. Singulair (montelukast). Which one is better to treat Allergy induced Asthma.

Depends: Montelukast (Singulair (montelukast)) works well in some patients, but inhaled steroids (Asmanex is one of several) are more reliably effective, in general. Singulair (montelukast) has the advantage of helping nasal and eye allergies, too. Always start with a emergency inhaler like albuterol first. All three are prescription; discuss side effects w/ provider.

What is wheezing?

What is wheezing?

Breathing noise: Wheezing typically refers to the high-pitched noise heard when air is forced through narrowed lower airways during asthma. Pprimarily on exhale when mild, then also on inspiration when airways are tighter. At its worst, air hardly moves: thus no wheezing at all, an ominous sign, and is an emergency. Wheezing is not stridor (upper airway) nor sonorous rhonchi (larger airways). Experts can sort out.

What causes wheezing?

What causes wheezing?

Bronchial spasm: Your airway is made of tubes called bronchi. The smaller tubes at the ends are called bronchioles. They are lined with muscles that can constrict (squeeze) or dilate (expand). Anything that makes the bronchioles constrict (infection, allergies, etc.) will make you wheeze.

Wheezing all of the time?

Bronchospasm: I can see from your list of meds that you are taking albuterol so you most likely have a diagnosis of asthma.For people with asthma that have persistent wheezing and trouble breathing there are medication to keep it under control or preventive medications. The most commonly used are inhaled steroids and you may ask your doctor about it. If you are wheezing right now and trouble breathing go to ed.
