just a simple question, every now and then when i would get up from laying down there is a raspy wheeziness feeling down the center of my chest , it doesnt hurt or anything and goes away a minute or two after i have been standing up. is it anything to be concerned about? It doesnt happen very often.
This may simply be a compression of the airways that occurs when you change positions. If it does not last, does not cause breathing problems and occurs infrequently, it is probably of little medical importance. If it persists, increases in frequency or starts to cause you more breathing problems, I would suggest seeing your doctor.
I have been having the same problem every morning for the last few weeks. I get up in the morning, and the first deep breath I take is followed by a wheezing up the center of my chest (no sound, though). It happens once and that is it. I have been very worried about it.
The air in our house is pretty dry, and I have been sneezing like crazy (maybe allergies?).
I have been trying to describe my syptoms to my family, and nobody else can relate.
Is there any other possibilities for this strange breathing?
Hi, I have something similar tho I can't quite tell whether the wheezy noises are coming out of my chest or throat. It happens mostly when I lie down, esp after I wake up. I think this is maybe due to excess mucus or impaired cilia in the chest. But it could be some case of asthma too, I'm not sure, best is to see a specialist, ortry to figure it out by trying different things. I'm doing the latter as waiting time for apt with ENT specialist in UK is several months... apparently nasal irrigation plus increased consumption of tea with lemon might help, also inhaling. From experience I think the best is just to try things out instead of waiting for some miracle because even the docs sometimes don't have a clue about what's going on and give you the wrong kind of treatment.
Best of luck,
jody22976 - I have exactly what you describe, it started around Xmas and has been the same since then. First deep breath I take when I wake up in the morning results in this funny feeling in the centre of my chest, its kind of like a tickly feeling really hard to describe, could be mucus moving I guess but it only happens once when I wake up. Sometimes if I have been lieing down for a while it might happen. I also have this irritation in the back of my throat which is causing a dry cough. I've seen 5 different doctors and they can not find what is wrong, they just try to put me on anti biotics which are of no use, I don't feel sick at all. Had a chest Xray, ECG, spirometry, blood tests etc. It is really driveing me insane. Last doctor put me on Ventolin inhaler as she though I might have astmha which I know I don't - of course it didn't help. I'm starting to consider silent acid reflux or post nasal drip after reading up on symptoms.
Does anyone have any adive to give me. I have had some symptoms from just about everywhere from everyone on this sight. I have a horrible couch. Even though I am athletic and not overweight, this couch sounds as though an 8 foot obese person is in the room. It get bad at night and as soon as I lay down, I start hacking and sometimes so bad I almost gag. I also tend to wake up around 2 am couching as well. I went to the doc and she gave me a prescribtion for Tessalon Pearls (couch suppressent) and Augmentin (antibiotic). I am still horribly coughing, and now my ears are clogged and yesterday one had some fluid leak out, and I also have a horrible pain in my right lung just below my chest when either I cough or inhale. I have not been to the gym in a week. I had a cat for a week and then my couch got worse so I got rid of the cat in case it was causing this coughing. I called the doc and she said I need to wait at least 1 week for the meds to kick in. It has been 3.5 days and I still am the same/worse. I am a nonsmoker, great health (until this), and a usual gym rat. At one point I was taking the antibiotic, cough suppressant, and delsym at night just so i can somewhat breathe and not cough too bad that I feel like I have to go to the hospital. Thank you for any info you may give me.
Rommel74-I am glad to hear all of your tests turned out normal, but I can still understand how frustrating it must be to wonder what is going on.
I am having a physical done next week, so I am very anxious to see what the doctor has to say. I am very nervous--looking up my symptom on the internet leads me to think that I have every horrible disease that this breathing is associated with. My husband is ready to take the computer away from me!
I am wondering if you have had Bronchitis in the past. I have had it about 5 times (I am 30). I am wondering now if I may have chronic bronchitis.
I will let you know what the doctor has to say.
Rommel74-Thanks so much for the encouraging words. I also quit smoking just 4 months ago after 10 years. Congrats to you. It was so hard, but thank goodness we did it. It can only get better from here.
Jody, thanks for getting back to me, I'm sure that you do not have any serious illness much less chronic bronchitis yourself especially in the absence of other symptoms but as you said this anoying feeling does make you imagine the worst. I'm 32 myself and only just quit smoking 6 month ago (smoked for 10 years), my reward for quiting is the start of this stupid condition lol. I've searched the net for this symptom we have for months and can not find anything at all that comes close to describing it, it doesn't even exist as a symptom at all. You should ask your doctor for a spirometry, its quick and painless and will definetly rule out COPD (emphysema and chronic bronchitis). My results were good, 120% of predicted values for someone my age and lung age of 20 years. To answer your question, I haven't had a cold or flu in years. Last time I had flu with acute bronchitis was back in 1999 and only very mild colds since. Yet this anoyance is the first thing on my mind when I draw a deep breath each morning.
Best of luck on your doctors appointment, I'm sure there is nothing wrong with you. Keep us posted though and I'll let you know as well if I find a "cure" :)
You symptoms seem very similar to my husband's. Have your doctor check a chest x-ray to see if you have a paralyzed diaphragm. Ten doctors and specialists missed this before a pulmonologist finally recognized it.
