Hi, I have been diagnosed with Asthma and I use an inhaler daily, but lately I have been experiencing uncontrollable exhaling. At this time, my sinuses are not stuffed up or clogged in any way, but I have continuous mucus running down the back of my throat. It collects in my lung and affects my breathing and have to cough it up. The exhaling issue happens when I feel a little itch/tickle in my throat which starts a low volumn cough 8 to 10 in a row rapidly in which I have no control. It empties ever bit of air in my lungs and I have to force myself to gasp for air.

Hi. I am 42 year old fit and healty male, I have been experiencing wheezing during exhalation off and on for the last
12 months. I have had cardiac testing and lung testing and X-rays and all is looking normal. I have also trailed a variety of asthma inhalers without success. My symtoms are fatigue, irritability, bad sleeping, exhausted upon waking, lack of concentration, cannot exhale carbon dioxide efficiently during exercise, headaches.
Iatelly the laboured breathing is becoming more frequent. My latest observation is that the wheezing or restriction may be in the upper throat region. I am no doctor so this may be an incorrect observation.
I now fear I may stop breathing while sleeping.
Your help would be much appreciated.

Question: Can I receive a prescription tonight for an asthma inhaler from an online physician?
Details: I'm having asthma symptoms. Was recently at my physician about a week ago and ECG and breathing tests came out just fine, so it was diagnosed anxiety (xanax script). Happy to have xanax but that's not solving the problem. In the past I could get an inhaler from the local pharmacy; obviously that is no longer an option. Please advise. Thanks!
