Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Common problems which cause issues in breathing include pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, allergies etc.

Without an opportunity to examine you physically, I am unable to provide the specific treatment .To allow me to help you better, please let me know if you also have any of the following complaints:

Nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, chest congestion, cough, wheezing, labored breathing, and shallow breathing.

Once I have these answers, we would be able to discuss the treatment better.

Regards.

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query again.

It seems to be chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Get examined by a chest physician . You may require spirometry to see the lung function. Once we have the results, we can discuss them here.

This problem does not cause death. Just relax, you do not need to worry too much.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Hello XXXXXXX,
Thanks for writing again.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is disease of the lungs in which the airways become narrowed. This leads to a limitation of the flow of air to and from the lungs, causing shortness of breath (dyspnea). This occurs due to long term exposure to smoke or due to several other reasons, as is the case of bronchitis.

For diagnosis of COPD, lung function tests are required. On lung function test , there is low air flow in this disease.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
