Wheezing Treatment

Wheezing that is accompanied with difficulty in breathing may require quick medical attention. People with acute bronchitis can be prescribed with a bronchodilator and antibiotics to help ease wheezing and treat bacterial infection, if suspected. You may experience laboured breathing, tightening in your chest and serve coughing in addition to wheezing.

Unidentified Chest Pain

Unidentified chest pain since September 2016. My chest pain is located deep in my chest, towards the right. It's not sharp but feels more like a burning sensation. It almost feels like there's a giant gaping and hollow hole there. It also feels like something is "writhing" or "rolling" around, like a contracting muscle. It is worst when I'm sitting up, and my only relief is when I am reclined (45 degrees at least) or lying down. It seems to be worse on days when I don't get enough sleep. It doesn't seem to react to food or any other factor. I have no issues breathing, exercising, or sleeping. I basically have this feeling all throughout the day, and it goes up and down. Sometimes the flare-ups are so bad that I need to stop working and lie down.

Never ending cough

Been suffering from cough for over 2 weeks now. It's bad enough for the chest to vibrate with it and I feel like I'll end up coughing my lungs out any minute. I saw an ENT for throat problems along with the cough but the meds he prescribed couldn't alleviate the problem. My cough does create some phlegm which feels like it's coming right from the chest. And it also leaves my throat a bit sore. I've been trying home remedies, drinking hot water a lot, drinking joshina and some cough syrup but that really is just some short term relief. Probably for an hour or so. The cough also creates a whooping sound and even breathing after the cough produces a mild whistling sound.
