For the past year I have experienced a tickling sensation in my chest on and off, especially when breathing cold air, also a tight feeling occassionaly when I walk outside especially in cold air. Most recently, I had cold symptoms, starting with swollen glands, dry cough, lowgrade fever and laryngitis.....2 weeks later, still fever, bronchitis, my cough is more productive, but I have serious tickling in my chest when inhaling, cough is less frequent as is runny nose, but still the tickling in chest all day. Chest x-ray shows no pneumonia, and I just finished my Z-pack.
I have been on Inderal LA for 20 years due to irregular heartbeats / mitral valve prolapse. Could this have damaged my lungs? How can I determine if I have asthma, I am afraid to try an inhaler for fear of palpitations and I hear not good to take an albuterol along with Inderal anyway. Is it normal for bronchitis to last this long, still coughing after 2 weeks? What are options for someone taking Inderal? At 44 do I stop exercising totally to try and stop this tickle in my chest?
