Pulmonary Hypertension Expert Forum
Please help Wheezing/Asthma even on meds
About This Forum:

Pulmonary hypertension is a condition associated with high blood pressure in the arteries that connect your heart with your lungs. It is a serious condition for which there are many emerging treatments but no definite cure. In this disease, the blood vessels that carry oxygen-poor blood from your heart to your lungs become hard and narrow, which causes your heart to work harder to pump the blood. This forum is a place to ask questions about Pulmonary Hypertension. Some examples are: What caused me to get pulmonary hypertension? How is pulmonary hypertension diagnosed? What treatment options are available?

IMPORTANT!! If you have a question that requires immediate medical attention, or if you think you may have an emergency situation, please call your doctor or 911 IMMEDIATELY!

Please help Wheezing/Asthma even on meds

Dear Doctor,
I've been wheezing after a respiratory infection for weeks now on exhalation and a month of prednisone, dulera, symbicort, singulair, albuterol, allergy meds doesn't fix the problem and was getting headaches.  I also have discomfort/pain in my head and leg when I exhale- seems to be bad circulation.  I don't have a cough and don't have much mucus.  
Are there any meds or a doctor I should go see?  maybe xopenex, theophylline, or atrovent?
thanks so much!

Hello and welcome to the forum.

First, this is a pulmonary hypertension forum.  Thus, in case you were wondering, the good news is that your symptoms are not consistent with pulmonary hypertension.

Second, I would suggest that you see a pulmonologist (a lung doctor).  I would not take any of those medications that you mentioned without first being examined by a physician.

I hope you feel better soon.

Best,

Dr. Rich
