Breathing problems: A few conditions can cause breathing problems. Asthma, copd, heart diseases, liver / kidney / thyroid diseases are the common causes and they are treated differently. Loratatine is usually safe. It can causes bronchospasm, and difficulty breathing as in any medications due to your sensitivity to that particular med. However, if it is the case, it's unlikely you can take it that long. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Reactive airways: Given your history of allergies and persistent cough during the winter, you are at higher risk for developing reactive airways, or asthma, which can be triggered by lung infections. Reactive airways require inhalers for treatment, which would explain why only your symptoms of bronchitis or pneumonia improved. Residual pneumonia or pleuritis could also be the cause. Recheck needed :) ...Read more

Maybe. Make a movie.: To show the pediatrician what's happening, the parents can make a movie of the shirtless baby's breathing. Show the face, chest, and tummy at the same time, so the doctor can see how everything moves during breathing. A minute into the movie, open the mouth to show how the breathing changes; and then a minute later, close the mouth to show how the breathing changes again. ...Read more

For 2 years I have difficulty breathing. I have shortness of breath & can't breath through my nose unless im sleeping. Have to bend over & breath deep.

Need ENT/ allergy: And pulmonary consults. If everything has been tested and has come back normal but I would recommend that you get a referral to a tertiary care university center for a more high-level evaluation. I can't tell if your ocd perhaps even plays a role in this. You should have your psychiatrist on board with these consultations. Hopefully with everyone putting their minds together they will be able to come up with a solution to your problem. Best wishes. ...Read more

Difficulty breathing I am over weight BMI is 40.0+ last I checked I've noticed when I lay in bed at night on my back I struggle to get my breath I have to roll on my side or stomach is this due to my overweight? I've also been snoring really loud and some

By: By far, the most common reason for sleep apnea (disordered breathing during sleep) is obesity. With weight gain, the tissues surrounding your chest, throat and nasal passages become heavy and floppy. This makes it harder for these areas to inflate with breathing leading to loud snoring and difficulty with proper oxygenation.

There are a few things you should do.

-first, make an appointment to see your doctor. Talk to them about your problems and have them examine you for signs of rarer diseases that could be causing your symptoms such as heart failure.

-create a diet and exercise plan. Weight loss is the best long-term way to treat sleep apnea due to weight gain.

-consider a sleep study. If your symptoms are severe and are affecting your daily life, consider a sleep study to evaluate your disordered breathing.

-other treatments besides weight loss include CPAP (continued positive airway pressure), surgery, or muscle strengthening exercises. Talk to your doctor about your best options. Good luck! ...Read more
