i am 26 yr male, i not allergic to dust or pollens. only exercise causes wheezing to me, that too early morning if i do exercise i will have more wheezing. if i dont do exercise then i dont have wheezing. yes exercise is related to asthma.
I had an asthma attack (wheezing and all) after running in track when I was 16. It was embarresing. Still going untreadted. I ve always been afraid to exercise really hard after that. After that I took an aerobics class and almost passed out on the way home. Since then cause I started sleeping alot a doctor diagnosed me with narcolepsy cause I couldnt really stay awake unless I was at work. I don t think I have that anymore as I m not on medicine and seem to better regulate my issues. I think its all astma related. A doc gave me an inhaler to use before exercise, it didn t seem to help me much as I still rarely get the energy I need to exercise. My question is---- Can all of these symptoms be related to Asthma????????????????
I m 52 and have always been athletic and in good shape. Recently, I started to develop asthma symptoms that my doctor says could be related to exercise or allergies. She prescribed a steroidal inhaler and a bronchial dilator, neither of which I really like to use. Do you have any other more natural suggestions that I could try instead?
I have chronic asthma which seems to be aggravated by an unusually long and twisted xiphoid process. The asthma becomes worse after eating or with specific exercises - such as crunches. The xiphoid is swollen and may occasionally make popping sounds. There is occasional moderate pain and swelling. The xiphoid process is clearly visible near the base and spirals inwards into the chest cavity. Could the xiphoid process contribute to the asthma and should I consider having it removed; the pain is a secondary consideration but interferes with exercise

Hello, In November after visiting gym I ve got stuffed and 100% plugged nose, later developed chest caugh, pain, tiredness, thought I might have had pneumonia.. Took a lot of rest, lung teas, herbal tinctures, veget. and fruit juices etc. Lung Xray was OK. 2 weeks of antibiotics didn t clear it up. Up to now having smelly yellowish mucus coming out of my Bronchi s. Much worse after any kind of small walk, excercise. I am very concerned, it feels like infection in my chest that is not going away. Dr. ordered spirometry and metacholine tests, that suggested mild Asthma. Recommended cortison puffers only. I gave sample of yellow mucus - came out as inflamation only. What should I do next? So far I stayed off work last 3 months, taking care of myself, it seems getting slowly better until I go for a little walk when symptoms come back big time. What other test should be done to find out the real cause? I feel, that if it is not cleared, it will be getting worse over time. I used to do a lot of sports here as well as in Europe since childhood, until 3.5 months ago, and I am very worried about the future of this medical issue. Thank You, Radka
A 150 lb,62 year old man had a chronic productive cough, exertional dyspnea, mild cyanosis, and marked slowing of forced expiration. His pulmonary function and laboratory tests follow: Frequency 16 breaths/min alveolar ventilation 4.2 L/min (Assume 150 ml anatomical dead space) vital capacity 2.2 L functional residual capacity 4.0 L total lung capacity 5.2 L maximum inspiratory flow rate 250 L/min maximum expiratory flow rate 20 L/min PaO2 62 mm Hg PaCO2 39 mm Hg Pulmonary function tests after bronchodilator therapy: frequency 16 breaths/min alveolar ventilation 4.35 L/min VC 2.4 L FRC 4.0 L TLC 5.2 L Max inspiratory flow rate 250 L/min max expiratory flow rate 23 L/min PaO2 62 mm Hg PaCO2 38 mm Hg Questions: 1. What is the disorder this man has? 2. Is this primarily a restrictive or obstructive disorder? Why? 3. Why is the bronchodilator therapy ineffective in this man? 4. What causes hypoxemia? 5. Calculate the residual volume (RV) for this person before and after the bronchodilator therapy. 6. What is the cause of this altered RV? 7. Calculate the tidal volume (TV) for this man before and after the bronchodilator therapy. 8. Is each TV normal or altered? 9. Calculate the minute ventilation for this person before and after the bronchiodialator therapy? 10. Is each minute ventilation normal or altered?
My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.
My abdomen is steadily growing with an even round appearance.I look 7-8 months pregnant and my belly now extends further than my breasts. I began to feel movement the last week of August although they have always seemed unusually high and until 6...
