    Not fully recovered from Bronchitis from 5 months ago

    In early June I got sick and i get sick very often and i usually am sick for 1-2 weeks with low fever, so it was no surprise i got sick. But it went on and I was sick for 4 weeks with bad coughing and wheezing so i went to the doctor and they said I was fine. Coughing got worse and fever was still going so 3 weeks later we went back and it turns out I had atypical pneumonia (diagnosed only by her listening to my wheeze) and was on 10 days antibiotics (Not z-pac, im allergic) and my fever went a way....

    Long term lung issues

    I was born with mucous in my lungs after my mother smoked during her pregnancy. I eventually improved, but years later on and off, I'd have issues pop up. Breathing difficulties that would stem from being around potent chemicals and pushing myself too far physically. I would wake up short of breath afterwards, and this would continue until I took liquid sleeping medication and I could feel my lungs calm, and I could breathe easier. I have no idea what to call this... what I deal with. It's....

    Cold or Flu always becomes bronchitis and sinus infections

    Sorry for the long post... but i am desperate at this time. I am 52 years old that had bad asthma when I was a child. I seemed I outgrow from my 20 to mid 30's. In my mid 30's I started getting frequent sinus infections. I have had 3 sinus surgeries and take advair, singulair, nasonex, astepro daily along with other medications. Also, in my mid 30's I started getting severe IBS. After many, many tests I eventually found a "cure" for that on the internet. The 'cure' is....

    Breathing problems?!

    Months ago I started having issues breathing and catching my breath but it wasn’t that bad and I thought it was associated with other issues I have like anxiety. When I was a baby I had really bad RSV and had to sleep with a breathing machine but I do not know of any other problems that would cause what’s happening. Now as months have gone by, my breathing is getting worse. Just trying to talk to someone I lose my breath, I try to sit down and catch it but it’s like I am not getting oxygen in. I....

    Asthma and Reflux

    Have had asthma for several years now but has been fairly well managed with medication. Recently had been having more trouble with reflux and the over the counter generic Prilosec has become ineffective. The throat was becoming inflamed and had trouble swallowing sometimes. Went to the specialist who switched me to the next version- Nexium and it has greatly relieved many of the reflux symptoms and had an endoscopy to check things out after 6 weeks. I know that the reflux exacerbates the asthma,....

    Lifelong chronic symptoms rapidly reduced after taking potassium. Unknown cause. Would appreciate any theories or ideas!

    I’m very interested in your theories for my undiagnosed condition. I’m a 30 year old male that has suffered from a long list of chronic severe symptoms for most of my life. Dozens of specialists consultations and different tests and treatments have yielded no results. Recently, I tried a potassium gluconate supplement. I experienced rapid and dramatic reduction in all of my symptoms. This effect has been repeatable for 2 months. If I stop the supplementation, the symptoms return within a day. Severe....

  • Mint Asthma Trigger.

    The other day my teacher told me she'd never heard of mint triggering asthma before. Has anybody else ever had the problem with mint triggering their asthma, or was it just me..? Thanks.
