What Does It Mean When You Have A Wheezing In Your Chest When You Sleep
Every time I lay down to sleep my chest gets tighter but no wheezing but struggle to breath but I can't sleep sitting up due to chronic back pain what else can I do as it's keeping me up every night?
I am experiencing wheezing (worsened by: in the evening, at night, lying flat). PFT is normal, chest X-ray is normal, no allergies, asthma has been ruled out, sleep apnea was ruled out through a sleep study, I do snore very loudly though.?
Mgt: I would suggest a consultation. Aspiration is one possible cause. Do you cough? if so, is it worse at night?
Depends: If you have felt like this before and it passed in a few days with some rest and home care, try that again. If it is worse, see a doctor for exam and treatment. Wheezing can be serious - so can the other symptoms if they are out of the ordinary for you. Best wishes.
My boyfriend was laying down w/ my head on his chest and I could hear wheezing. What does it mean?
Possibilities...: There is a good saying in medicine that says "all that wheezes is not asthma". There is a long list of medical conditions that can cause wheezing including smoking, viral illness, airway obstruction by mucous or a foreign body, heart failure etc. If the problem continues I would encourage you to seek medical attention promptly.

What could it mean if there is a wheeze on oonly one side of lung, which does not improve with ventolin, pf is completely normal, lung is also rattlin?
Needs evaluation: Do you have infection...Fever, cough...Sputum, what color? Blood count? Why are you on ventolin? Do you have asthma? You say that pulmonary functions (pf) are normal? Might need repeating pf? Are you a smoker? Are you taking other drugs...Bcp? Need arterial blood gas, chest x-ray and/or ct scan? Consult your doctor. Thank you.
What does it mean when feel like your lung are cold n have wheezing and feeling cold and short of breath every once in a while after he coughs really?
Wheezing: You may have asthma. Consult a pulmonologist or allergist for help.
Take a seat: Truly, there is nothing available over-the-counter for wheezing...And rightly so. Bronchodilators like albuterol are the medication that give your immediate relief of wheezing but overuse can lead to deadly outcomes. Your personal doctor is prepared to evaluate & treat wheezing. Sometimes your doctor will enlist the assistance of an allergist or pulmonologist. Please make an appointment to see one.See 1 more doctor answer

See Doc/lung spec.: Wheezing, cough and chest pain may suggest bronchial asthma, chronic or acute bronchitis etc. Need to see doc for office spirometry and chest radiograph or see a lung specialist to make sure that you do not have bronchial asthma. Angina is less likely with cough and wheezing unless associated with congestive heart failure.See 1 more doctor answer
