Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
Please mention his symptoms. Breathing problem can be- asthma, bronchitis, a condition of the heart etc... Also what treatment he/she is taking for this. How long has he/she had it?

Good nutritious diet is must here, to keep the immunity up. Exercise and gym can be suggested only if the name of condition is known.

I have been having breathing problems associated with coughing and airway spasms. This seems to flare up and then settle down. I was hospitalized for a few days with a virus of diarrhea and vomiting and it flared up. I take Vistaril every four hours and it seems to calm it down. It wears me down and I have no energy. Isn t there a solution to rid this breathing issue?

My doctor says I have fluid built-up in my lungs, also with some pneumonia left, just today after he viewed the x-ray. I have a pain in my left shoulder and upper arm since 2-3 days. Is this pleurisy, and how advanced is it? I just feel shortness of breath, and I feel tired with no energy at all. I have read somewhere that a water pill might help to get rid of the fluid in the lungs. Is this o.k.?

I'm a 47-year old female, 5'6, 200 lbs (way over weight, I know!), type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, hypothyroidism, tachycardia, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, and hiatel hernia. Endoscopy and colonoscopy in 2008, normal other than hiatel hernia. Told to repeat in 10-years. As far back as I can remember, I have never had regular B/Ms. For the past month, I have been in severe pain in the URQ region. I have had x-rays, US, Hida-Scan, and CT. Dx, is constipation in right colon (area of pain). This past weekend, my dr put me on a liquid diet and typical colon cleanse for f/u x-ray. I am still having serve pain and have not had a B/M in 5 days. Dr said to take Dulcolax every other day until I have B/M every day and to take Miralax every day. F/u in 2 week, said may have to repeat colonoscopy if pain is still there. Does it sound like my doctor is doing everything necessary to determine source of pain? I am miserable! Please help!
