Hi, I am 26 years old and have asthma. Recently, I have not been able to breath well when I wake up from sleep and it also seems when I go to bed. EVERY day I wake up it feels like I am wheezing and cough after every deep breath. This will also happen sometimes in the middle of the day. I also seem to ALWAYS be clearing my throat or coughing up little small pieces of clear mucus throughout the day. In addition, I will get random chest pains on my upper left side. It could be while I'm running, sitting, working out, whatever. My nose is plugged 100% of the time, and when I clear it or take a nasal spray, my breathing does not get better. It feels like it is my lungs that can't get a deep breath.

I have taken my inhaler which doesn't really do anything. Any ideas? My Doctors right everything off since I am young and active and have not really given me any kind of direction.

  • I have somewhat the same conditions, but we have different diagnosis.I was diagnosed with a slight case of asthma recently, but nothing thatthe doctor prescribed anything for me. He said it was very slight. Ialso thought it was induced by environmental dust. I was exposed toCrystaline Sillica and have been dealing with a chronic clearing of mythought and cough. That moves stuff out of my way.I would say withing the last couple of weeks I have been experienceincreasing discomfort in my chest and in particular the left side. Thedoctor is going to do an EKG on me because my age and what hehears through listening to my heart. Note, that this may mostlybe due to my age (I'm 41).But his thoughts is that through coughing you strain muscles to helpremove the mucus. I suspect is that we don't realize how much forcewe use to move the stuff out of the way so we can feel comfortable.I would simply follow up with your specialist.
