I'm tired of coughing and feeling like i'm choking every night when I lay down.

Why does it feel like I always have a weez in my chest and I cough alot when I lay down at night? I don't smoke either. I feel like I'm choking every night. I even lay back to watch a movie and the coughing starts! Does anyone know why?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Your symptoms could be due to Asthma. Cough, chest tightness and breathlessness are the triad of symptoms for Asthma. It is a disease affecting the lungs causing narrowing of the airways, usually due to an allergic reaction to triggering factors. Therapy is with bronchodilators which cause the airways to dilate. Have yourself evaluated for the same. This can be detected by a spirometry test.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
