Hello Doctor I am suffering from a wheezing sound that is coming from my windpipe and when I cough a small amount of blood comes up. This only occurs when I get this wheezing sort of gurgling sound in my chest. And most time I feel there is something stuck in my chest. Recently I was in the hospital and they performed a bronchoscopy and gastroscopy however the results came up clean. They also did a tests for TB and bronchitis and these also came up clean. Can you please help me I am really worried.
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic. I can understand your concern. You are having hemoptysis (blood in sputum) and wheezing (whistling sound). Both these are commonly seen bronchospasm. And most common cause for bronchospasm is bronchitis. So I insist you to get done PFT (Pulmonary Function Test) despite of normal chest x ray and bronchoscopy. PFT will not only diagnose bronchitis but it will also tell you about severity of the disease and treatment is based on severity only. You will mostly improve with inhaled bronchodilators (formoterol or salmeterol) and inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) (budesonide or fluticasone). Don't worry, you will be alright with all these. Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
