Wind And Bloating At Night Causing Asthma
Can Prednisolone cause stomach bloating? Have been taking for three days, x3 5mg for asthma issues. Stomach was also cramping a bit yesterday. Thanks!
Could it be Asthma or GERD Bloating causing wheezy chest? When I am laying down in Bed at night or even Heart or Bisoprolol taken in the Evening?
How to know that it is asthma? I have breathing difficulty usually at night? I sometimes have acid reflux, burping bloating, breathless.
I hve anmia for hvy menstrl blding and everytime on hvy blding day I have brthing difficulty, chst pain, bloating. Why? I also have mild asthma.
If you have significant anemia, breathing problem and fatigue are not unexpected (i hope you are taking iron supplements). The anemia plus the asthma (+ menses) may work together to cause the breathing problem when each individually would not. Why you are on tranexamic acid. No asthma control medication?
As for bloating, this is not an uncommon complaint during menses. See internist/allergist. ...Read more
I'm overweight and have asthma. When I try to work out I get winded really fast. What are my best options?
Control the weight: Overweight asthmatics find that their asthma is much more difficult to control, and are frustrated that they can't exercise enough to lose weight. Please read "Why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubes. This explains that exercise is NOT the way to lose weight. Developing a low-carb diet is much more effective. You'll find that your asthma will be much easier to control once you get your BMI under 30 or 25. ...Read more
I mowed and weedeated my yard today and now feel kinda winded since I doen it. My pulm dr said he positive I don't hsve asthma. Allergic?
Allergies: Try taking a non drowsy allergy medicine. Regularly especially before yard work. ...Read more
Premedicate: Treatment for exercise induced asthma includes a slow warm up, rescue inhaler before exercise and continue daily controller medications. If difficulty breathing is on "inspiration" then a diagnosis of vocal cord dysfunction should be ruled out. Also, other causes of difficulty breathing should be evaluated for such as heart issues, blood clots, etc. A lung specialist can direct the evaluation. ...Read more
I have been having a hard time breathing, ex-smoker, had asthma as a child. Could I possibly have it again? Even a flight of stairs makes me winded.
Yes, possibly: There are lots of possible causes for what you describe and adult asthma is one. Make a doctor's appointment to get an answer and start the proper treatment. Hopefully it will be a mild condition that can be well controlled. Congratulations on being an ex! I imagine you are glad not to have to say "i smoke" when you see the doctor, right? Good luck! ...Read more
I get winded very easily by walking up stairs or walking fast I am pretty fit and I am healthy weight but I do have asthma how can I make the shortened of breath go away?
Asthma control: Your shortness of breath may be a sign of uncontrolled asthma. If you are not already taking a daily medication, it may be time for one. If the asthma is well controlled and you continue to experience shortness of breath, other causes should be investigated by your doctor. ...Read more
What is good exercise technique for someone with severe exercise-induced asthma? I get easily winded walking up a flight of stairs.
Listen to your body: You would benefit from a thorough check up for nutritional deficiencies like vit d3, magnesium, zinc and iron which could be aggravating a problem with shortness of breath and bronchoconstriction. Practice relaxation abdominal breathing so that you can do this while walking and going up stairs. Get a good night sleep, de-stress, eat 6 small healthy meals and move for 10 minutes after each meal. ...Read more
Could humid weather make someone with autoimmune disease (NOT asthma) more winded when walking outside?
I had an ekg and pulmonary test done which came back fine. I was a little winded during pulmonary test. Doctor on here thinks it's allergic asthma. Can I have that without it showing up on my test?
Abnormal pulmonary: When you have a problem it is going to show up on the test. There is a possibility any mild problem may not show up on the test ...Read more
Could never inflate balloons or sing much. Easily winded. Talking gets tiring but docs say no ILD or even asthma. Confused. What 2 do? Atopy 2 blame?
Can asthma exist w/o identifiable attacks? Easily winded, fatigue from talking. No anemia, ILD or heart issue. Slight weeze, no identifiable attacks
Been checking up with the heart and lung doc lung says only Asthma. Just walking down stairs I get winded bad. Inhaler not helping had 6 palpitations in less than a minute today? What could it be? Got a full heart work up and it’s clear.
I advise continued: Evaluation. If it's "only asthma" the inhalers should be having some effect. Maybe steroids/Prednisone will need to be considered. Full work up likely includes CT/MRI, exercise echocardiogram and/or cardiopulmonary exercise testing. While anxiety would not be my first consideration, it has to be considered as another possibility. At your young age, a definite cause should be found/treated. ...Read more
Obstructed airways: I think context would be helpful in order to answer this question satisfactorily. Air trapping is a symptom or sign of obstructed airways where the air has an easier time getting in than out. Conditions like COPD, Emphysema and Asthma are the usual causes and can be seen on xray as flattening of the diaphragm and on spirometry as a increased Functional Residual Capacity. Other causes are rare. ...Read more
Emphysema: Destruction of alveoli occurs with emphysema induced by smoking or in an inherited disorder called Alpha 1 anti-trypsin deficiency. Asthma has inflammation, swelling, mucus production and may have scarring (remodelling) of the lining within the small airways, but should not destroy alveoli. ...Read more
Training your lungs to exhale fully. Is this possible if you have asthma? I can't seem to expel air all the way out of my lungs. What is the cause?
Treat the asthma: Your symptoms will improve once you control your asthma with proper medications. Inflammation in your airways from asthma cause them to narrow and prevent you from breathing properly. You will be able to exhale better once you are controlled. Consult with an allergist or pulmonologist. ...Read more
It may be!: There are many theories about the reason for an increasing number of asthma patients. These include increased use of antibiotics (hygiene hypothesis), use of Acetaminophen in children, air pollution (diesel particles and particulate matter pm2.5), allergies, etc. Air pollution is a clear contributor to respiratory disease including triggering asthma already present and perhaps inducing asthma. ...Read more
What causes trachea spasms (which blocks air passage) whenever coughing occurs? Is that an asthma symptom?
Age dependent: The trachea of younger kids is somewhat rubbery, like a soft silicone or thin walled plastic. It does not spasm, like the soft walls of the gut, but it can and does vibrate enough to produce some odd sounds (the croup noise) common from ~6mo-6yr. In tracheo-malacia, (a transient condition) the walls are much weaker and actually cave in on each other, but soft walls not spasm is the problem. ...Read more
Sometimes I 'feel' the sensation of air suddenly leaving my lungs. I have consistently had lots of phlegm cause by something asthma related, any ideas?
Can cold air cause breathlessness without asthma? It's my trigger but inhalers barely help! (Ventolin, plus Clenil and Serevent (salmeterol) twice a day)
Consider other cause: Cold air exposure is a common trigger. Could be undiagnosed/improperly treated asthma or another condition that mimics asthma like vocal cord dysfunction. Would suggest seeing specialist for further workup and evaluation. An allergist would be someone good to talk to. ...Read more
I suffer from Asthma and currently have very thick mucus in my air ways which causes a wheezing sound when I breathe, please suggest some antibiotic?
Asthma treatment: 23 year old male with asthma and wheezing, complaining of thick mucus. Thick mucus could be a sign of an infection which in turn makes asthma symptoms worse and prolonged. Asthma is a disease that requires prescription therapies like albuterol and inhaled corticosteroids. I wouldn't recommend an antibiotic unless you are seen by a doctor. Often, asthma and infection are confused, needs an exam. ...Read more

Throat: You have your answer indoor air is most dry in winter. However is time for rhinorrhea and that might cause your symptoms ...Read more
What would cause shortness of breath in a supposedly healthy 23 year old female? The air feels hard to breathe in. Most likely not asthma related. Heart rate is 60 and SpO2 is 98%
What causes extreme gas? What causes extreme gas & bloating? It basically just feels like my body is constantly full of air all the time.
Digestion: You likely lack enzymes necessary to digest the food. I have no vested interest in this product but do recommend "digest extra" sold at the vitamin shoppe. It has all the enzymes your body needs for food breakdown and usually does the trick. ...Read more
