Stop the botox: Sounds like you are having classic side effects to botox. The shortness of breath however can signify a dangerous complication whereby the botox can enter the blood stream and travel to other places like the heart, lungs and brain.

Cough (Definition)

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

64 year old COPD patient complaining of increasing shortness of breath and productive cough of thick. What would docs do?

Could B exacerbation: Any changes of the normal could be an exacebation of copd. Typical would be antibiotics not just for infection but antiflamatory properties as well. May need adjustments to medications as well. Need to see md especially if above occurs or an incease in rescue inhalers is noted.

My mom has many nodules on her lungs, nausea, fatigue, shortness of breath, and a cough she's had for over a month. Could it be serious?

My mom has many nodules on her lungs, nausea, fatigue, shortness of breath, and a cough she's had for over a month. Could it be serious?

Yes; smoker? Nodules: ... are worrisome in the lungs unless the cause is known to be benign (only way to establish that is by bronchoscopy & biopsy). We don't have all the information here... did your mom ever smoke tobacco? A persistent cough is never a good sign in an (ex-)smoker. Have her talk to a doctor or use HealthTap Prime to go over her history & get a diagnosis. Only then will we know if it's serious or not.

See doctor: If you have shortness of breath, you need to see a doctor to find out why. It looks like you have an infection in your respiratory tract including possibly a sinus infection and/or pneumonia. Don't delay seeing your doctor any longer.

Pain/swollen vein in right calf for 2 weeks, shortness of breath and small cough for 1 day, risk of DVT. Could I have a pulmonary embolism?

Possible: I would see your primary care doctor as soon as possible, especially if shortness of breath persists. They will be able to determine. This might even be an instance to go to the ER. It is difficult to determine based on the evidence in the question.

I'm having constent pain in the lower portion of my ribs when I breath, I have shortness of breath, ive been coughing hard, and I have asthma.?

See your doctor: While these could be muscle pains from a viral illness, these symptoms could also represent more than just asthma and a cold. You may have bronchitis or the beginning of a pneumonia or other lung or heart problem. Get to your doctor to have an evaluation.

I have difficulty breathing (shortness of breath) along with coughing and wheezing sound during winter season especially night time.

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.

Stubborn pighead!: You say that you are always short of breath yet you continue to smoke. They say you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink. You are a good example of that bit of folk wisdom.

My throat and chest feels itchy when I breath since afternoon+panic attack and shortness of breath. I keep coughing but doesn't help. What might this be?

Asthma: May be asthma from allergies or a sign of a panic attack. I would see your doctor or go to the ER where they can do simple breathing tests to check for asthma.

On 250/50 advair/albuterol. Third time I've stopped mid-run because of serious shortness if breath, wheezing, and coughing. Change or up medication?

On 250/50 advair/albuterol. Third time I've stopped mid-run because of serious shortness if breath, wheezing, and coughing. Change or up medication?

Go see your doctor: Advair 250/50 is different from & does not contain albuterol. Advair is a combination of an inhaled corticosteroid and a long acting beta agonist while albuterol is a short acting one. Advair is used to prevent asthma attacks while albuterol is used to rescue you from one. If you've had 3 attacks despite advair, you need to check w/your doc. Make sure you're using proper technique, too. Spacer?
