I have breathing disorders for the last 2 years. I have been to close to 4 different doctors but the problem persists.

I live in Chennai where the humidity is normally above 55%. The problem is of this nature:

There is a lot of flem formation this happned in regular intervals. This kind of settles in my lungs.
I face shortness of breath if there is a climate change or in places.
When I have this problem I cough a lot in my sleep.

A few moths back a doctor told to take two medicines they are:

Allegra 120 MG
Leveflox 500 MG

Unfortunately the medicines are of a higher mg capacity. But when ever I have the breathing trouble this helps.

Precautions I take:

Avoid cigrette smoke or any kind of burning fumes except for the traffice fumes.
I avoid using any kind of insect repellent.

For the past 30 days or so I have been using Asthalin Inhaler. This get rid of the trouble then and there.

Is there a permanent cure for my condition. As, I did not have this before and no one in my family has the same case.

Please help.

  • It sounds as if you've got bronchitis,and in a very humid environment I bet there's lots of molds to which you could be allergic.

  • There are many causes of breathing problems. Some people have difficulty breathing when they get a cold. Others have trouble breathing because of occasional bouts of acute sinusitis. Sinusitis can make it difficult to breathe for a week or two until the inflammation subsides and the congested sinuses begin to drain.Many breathing problems are chronic or long-term. These common breathing problems include chronic sinusitis, allergies, and asthma. These problems can cause a host of symptoms such as nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, chest congestion, cough, wheezing, labored breathing, and shallow breathing.The nasal passage is a pathway for viruses and allergens to enter your lungs. So the nose and sinuses are often associated with many lung disorders. A sinus or nasal passage inflammation may trigger reflexes and cause asthma attacks. And the No. 1 trigger for asthma is allergies.
