Brief Answer: Can be due to Bronchitis. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. It seems from the information you have submitted that you are dealing with a moderate degree of bronchitis. It can be due to a viral infection causing you the symptoms like fatigue muscle pains and headache. I know that you are not asthmatic by your medical history but it is possible that you developed a degree of temporary asthma due to the inflammation inside your airways. This is a relatively common thing in a moderate bronchitis. I think at this time you would derive the greatest benefit by using an inhaler. The inhaler I would recommend for you is albuterol in combination with a steroid inhaler. These are commonly prescribed medications for patients with bad bronchitis. You can take two puffs inhaled three or four times daily as needed for a few days. This medication does a really good job at helping the airways relax. What you're dealing with right now involves spasm of the airways due to the inflammation from the bronchitis. I really think you would get a significant degree of relief after a day or two of using one of these inhalers. You can consult your physician and get these prescribed for relief. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
