Wheezing After Bronchitis
I wheeze when I get Bronchitis. Someone said this means I have asthma. I NEVER wheeze unless I have Bronchitis. So do I have asthma?
I NEVER wheeze except w/Bronchitis, which I've had 3 times in 1 year. The wheeze I get when I AM sick scares me into thinking I have asthma. Likely?
If I wheeze slightly with bronchitis and get bronchitis easily, does that mean I have asthma? Never wheeze otherwise, and never had asthma in the past
What can I do for wheezing? I've had bronchitis for 3 weeks. I use my inhaler and I also have a nebulizer and I keep wheezing. What else can I do?
Your asthma is worsening and you would need a full work up including a chest xray, CBC, sputum test, pulmonary function test, Arterial blood gas as well as steroids and antibiotics.
Only your physician could make a personalized treatment plan after a thorough exam. Get well. ...Read more
I've been sick w/ a cold lately, and started coughing up lots of mucus, & wheezing as well. In the past I've also had Bronchitis. Cold or Bronchitis?
Mgt: I would advise checking your temperature, if you have more than 24 hours of fever, an evaluation to rule out pneumonia is indicated. If this is an uncomplicated common cold, you should start to feel better soon. For your wheezing, I would advise using your Albuterol and following your action plan. In the meantime, rest, stay well hydrated and monitor your temperature. ...Read more
I just got over a bad case of Bronchitis and am still wheezing a little. Is it safe to get a colonoscopy tomorrow? I am scheduled to get one.
Probably OK: Wheezing after bronchitis is not unusual. You do not receive general anesthesia for a colonoscopy so you will likely be just fine. The anesthesiologist will interview and examine you prior to the procedure. Be sure to mention this to them. They will check your oxygenation and listen to your lungs and if there is any concern, will hold off on the colonoscopy. ...Read more
It seems like I have a cold, but the symptoms are in my chest only. I don't have a cough and I'm not wheezing. Could I still have bronchitis?
I've been on amoxicillin for a week for bronchitis and I forgot my dose this morning and I took it soon after but now I have a cough/wheezing?
Bronchitis: Cough and wheezing can easily be a sign or symptom of bronchitis. It is unlikely that the Amoxicillin is causing the call although occasionally allergy to the drug can cause wheezing. If your wheezing continues you should contact your doctor and probably undergo a chest x-ray. ...Read more
I have a high HR due to POTS, and I also get Bronchitis a lot. Is there an inhaler that helps wheezing but does NOT raise HR too much? What's safest?
I have acute bronchitis, from one week I am getting severe wheezing only nighttimes. I am not able to breath properly. I am using forocort inhaler.
Wheezing w/bronchiti: May have associated reflux, therefore happening at night. Can try ranitidine and or prevecid before bed. Would also elevate head of bed with pillow under mattress (it will help you breathe anyway as compress lungs when lying down). May also be reactive airways due to bornchitis-elevating head of bed helps. F/u w/ doc ...Read more
Are asthma deaths generally preventable? I have asthma plus bronchitis (acute) and I'm worried bc still wheezing on roids etc.
Absolutely, asthma deaths are preventable. If your bronchodilator is not working then either the canister is empty, or you are not taking it properly and medicine is not reaching in properly. You need aggressive treatment for asthma and if home treatment is not stopping wheezing please see MD or go to ER asap.
When associated with bronchitis, steaming and removing mucus from lungs helps a lot. ...Read more
Does the beginning symptoms of acute bronchitis include burning dry cough and intermittent wheezing?
Can I have allergic bronchitis with no cough no wheezing. Only constant breathlessness that usually gets better if I go out with friends?
How can you tell if virus or bronchitis? Wheezing and coughing but not coughing up much. Just really deep coughing a lot
Had bronchitis for 3 months now, been taking medicine from doctor, but i still have a bad cough and wheezing. Should I go back to doctor? Or worry?
Yes & maybe: Average duration of cough illness is 18 days (http://alvinblin. Blogspot. Com/2013/01/average-duration-of-cough-18-days. Html) so 3 months or 90 days is "excessive". More worrisome is wheezing. Cough is often a symptom of silent wheezing. Bottom line, it's time to go back & see your doc. Perhaps you have asthma. Foreign body? Obstruction? Idiopathic pulmonary lung disease? Get pulmonary function test. ...Read more
Confused abt difference between asthma & bronchitis. Don't both cause wheezing/phlegm? Must I take meds for asthma if I only have symp's w/bronchitis?
I have POTS and HR is 80s-110, depending. I get Bronchitis and am wondering if Albuterol type inhalers are safe for me when I get wheezing sound?
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
Could my bronchitis turn into pneumonia if I can't cough up the mucus in my lungs my chest is now crackling instead of wheezing?
I am experiencing bronchitis and asthma cough and wheezing (worsened by: in the evening, at night). Shortness of breath. What should I...
Doctor can examine: An asthma patient may need more doses of asthma medication or a second medication, or just fine-tuning of her asthma meds. If the doctor feels there is bronchitis or pneumonia, an antibiotic may be needed. Sometimes a chest x-ray is done to see if there is something unusual going on, but a chest x-ray is usually not needed in simpler cases of asthma. ...Read more
I have frequent wheezing and bronchitis, but pulmonary function testing is always normal. Does that sound like asthma despite normal testing?:
I have had bronchitis for 10 days. Have had 5 doses of prednisone tablets (1 per day) and am still wheezing today. No fever. Should I be seen?
Bronchitis : Are you feeling better? If so you are on the mend and should be well soon ...Read more
Have had a bad cough bronchitis for 3 months. E smoker stopped 5 years ago wheezing and shortness of breath. Have bad mucus dark green for 3 months?
Get treated: You need to get checked out and treated. Whether your problem is copd, asthma, bronchiectasis, or something else, the longer the illness goes on in a poorly-controlled state, the worse it will be for your long-term health. This applies to your entire body, including your heart, not just your lungs. ...Read more
If a z-pack was unsuccessful in treating bronchitis, is there logic in a dr giving another one for a 2nd round? Bronchial spasms, wheezing, cough.
No.: This does not make good sense. Most bronchitis is viral and does not respond to antibiotics. A second course will generally not do any better. Unless you had signs or symptoms that specifically suggested bacterial infection I would hold off on antibiotics and consider other agents for the wheezing and cough. ...Read more
