does wheezing cause death?
i've defiantly got a problem in my lungs.
i've been smoking around 5-6 cigarettes per day from the past 3 years....
i was healthy, athletic...
i play soccer... but 3 days ago, i just took a warm up, kicked the ball a few time and i was too tired...
i was not able to breathe properly... i had been to a doc... he said that i've been infected in lungs...he gave me some antibiotic tablets and syrup... he also asked me to take some nebulization...
is this a wheezing symptom or a lung cancer or just an infection...????

Hello and hope you are doing well.

If you are a smoker and have developed long standing lung infections/inflammation it can compromise your lung function.  Breathlessness on exertion could be due to the decreased lung function. There could also be superadded infection o the lungs. It's unlikely to be cancer of the lungs. To improve lung function practice breathing exercises and quit smoking.  Lung function tests could further help in evaluation. If the symptoms are getting worse or if you develop additional symptoms please consult your primary care physician.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Looks like there is persisting infection. Continue with your antibiotics and bronchodilators. Immediately on cessation of smoking you will not see any improvement. The damage which has already been done will be there, only it will prevent further damage. So, continue with your medications, smoking cessation and breathing exercises and inhalations. If there is worsening of symptoms consult your doctor for alternate medications.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
