Working in company involved in mixing Magnesium Chloride. Having breathing difficulty, watery eyes and running nose. Help?
Concerned Father Three different blood tests came back normal, I don't know what they were.
Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX
I have gone through your query in detail. In view of the history of smoking he could be suffering from COPD which has got aggravated by his working in dusty atmosphere. You have not mentioned if the tests that he has undergone were all normal or otherwise.
In view of history of alcohol intake(quantity and duration not mentioned) pancreatitis also needs to be ruled out. Consult a gastroenterologist.
Valley fever is a type of fungal infection caused by spores of fungus coccidioides and is common in people working with soil. It is generally of mild nature and does not require any treatment. It can be diagnosed by sputum test, blood test and x XXXXXXX or ct scan which will show some changes in the lungs.Though unlikely in your son`s case but in view of COPD, you may get him tested. You should consult a pulmonologist who will put him through relevant tests and subsequently guide you correctly.
In the meanwhile, it is advisable that your son quits smoking all together and takes treatment for COPD which the pulmonologist will advise you.
I do hope this answers you query and if you have any more questions, i will be glad to answer them.
