Sure of diagnosis?: If your doctor is sure of the diagnosis, it may just take time. Bronchitis typically doesn't show up on chest x-ray. If you use birth control pills or have other risk factors for clotting, ask your doctor to do a d-dimer to screen you for a blood clot in your lung (pulmonary embolism). If the ddimer is negative, you don't have it. If pos, you will need a CT to rule it in or out. ...Read more

Coreg (carvedilol) and lisinopril for htn. Last 6 weeks wheezing, fatigue, short breath during running w/o cough. Inhaler does not help. Rest resolves. Allergies?
Catching up.: In a healthy state we consume o2 and produce more co2 during exercise. The "difficulty" breathing we feel, is the need to exhale the co2. Our respiratory drive is tied more to getting out the co2 than getting in the o2. It is an interesting question on why is the body "wired" that way. ...Read more

What can a person on beta blockers do for chest wheeze, cough, phlegm when albuterol breathing treatments are contraindicated? How to clear out lungs?
Alternative: I don't know the contraindication to albuterol but there is Levalbuterol as alternative. In addition, an inhaled steroid is usually indicated for chronic lung problems. Revisit your bblocker as there are also more selective ones that don't induce bronchospasm. Talk to your doctor about these. And definitely try to see if you can get cough meds. Cough can induce wheezing. Good luck. ...Read more

If my child is wheezing can i give an abuterol treatment, and the give the qvar since it is twice a day it is prescibed?
Yes, in general: Some asthma specialists recommend increasing the inhaled steroid (qvar in this case) in the setting of an asthma exacerbation. However, if you have not been given an "asthma action plan" that specifically gives a course of action for times like these, then call the physician. There are variables that need to be accounted for to determine the best next step. ...Read more

Is the vanceril (beclomethasone) inhaler to alleviate the wheezing? Is it an effective treatment?
Bronchitis. Dr offered albuteral breath treatment even tho i take beta blocker, have rapid hr. I declined. Was i right? Dr said i had a chest wheeze.
You were wrong: In fact if you were on a beta blocker, reconsideration for a selective one should have been made to avoid the bronchospasms created by the nonselective ones. The nonselective bblockers can cause bronchospasm and can be reversed by b-agonists in the lungs. Of course there is some systemic overflow. Once it happens they are hard to reverse, hence we don't use Propranolol challenge anymore. ...Read more
I am in the hospital with wheezing. No COPD or asthma. 56 female. 2nd day of treatment not progressing. What should I do?
Hard to say: If you are in the hospital, the professional staff & doctors there have access to your history, exam, tests and present vital signs that we do not. Trying to second guess what they should do without that data is not reasonable. Lots of things can trigger wheezing & in time they can sort it out. ...Read more

My baby was taken to the paediatrician for treatment- she was chesty and had a slight wheeze. The paediatrician confirmed that she has a chest infection, but also said that she has a heart murmur. Could this be due to her chest infection?
Unlikely: The respiratory system are separate from the heart. Heart murmurs are relatively common in infancy. The worst ones present as blue babies in the first days or months. Most are innocent & related to blood flow. An illness or fever can increase blood flow & amplify even innocent ones. I found that if I listened often enough I could hear one in any kid at some point. Clarify the issue with your doc. ...Read more

Should i take him to the hospital? My son is 8 and has had a sinus infection for over a week.He is very congested and is wheezing and having trouble breathing.I just gave him his treatment.Should i wait a while and give him another treatment or take him r
I : I assume that since you are giving your son breathing treatments that he has asthma. Asthma attacks can have various triggers such as respiratory illnesses, allergies, pollution including cigarette smoke and perfume, very cold or hot air, and strenuous exercise. Giving albuterol whether through a nebulizer or inhaler is the first thing you should do for wheezing and respiratory distress. If the treatment is not working or if the child seems to need a treatment sooner than every 4 hours, this is a sign that they may need additional medications such as oral steroids and/or stronger albuterol treatments in an office or hospital setting. You should call your child's doctor and have him seen if it's during clinic hours or take him into the emergency room for evaluation.

Did CT chest w/contrast. Radiologist said every looks good w/my lungs. So why am I still coughing, wheezing, and short of breath? No treatment working
Wheezing: Hi JGold, you can still have symptoms with normal imaging. Diseases that fit this are asthma, reflux, atopy, laryngeal dysfunction and bronchspasm.

Bronchospasm is usually set off by fumes, smoke, allergies, etc. laryngeal dysfunction can be easily diagnosed. Hope that helps ...Read more

Bronchiolitis: At this age the airways are so small that a little swelling causes the obstruction with wheezing rather than bronchospasm as in asthma. RSV is often the cause. I know it's hard to watch your baby get sick like this but should make a full recovery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
