All that wheezes.... There is a famous saying in medicine that all that wheezes is not asthma. Although wheezing can be assocated with asthma it can occur in heart conditions, acid reflux, viral infections, etc. I would ask your doctor to listen to your lungs and consider doing pulmonary function tests to evaluate for asthma. A chest radiograph (xray) is usually indicated as well.

Of course, there are many other possible causes for the cough, especially if you have smoked, and you need an evaluation and possible chest x-ray as soon as possible. Read more...
