Can anyone help me?Thanks, DunkHello Dunk,See a Pulmonologist if your primary doctor is not providing any results.I have the same issue, but I chalk up the feeling of not having enoughair as my over reacting to the situation.My tickle in my throat has been around since June and has not stopped.I'm just hoping that it does not turn into something more serious.

  • Hi,My son had those symptoms with big yawning/tired/shortness of breath seems worse when he drinks something cold or eats a lot or feels stressed. Turns out allergies/asthma and bronchitis. Felt better using antihistamines like zyrtec and they gave him an inhaler and bactrim for bronchitis. It did go away after 1 month of this treatment. It also happened after inhaling chlorine fumes in an indoor hotel pool after swimming vigorously for an hour. (maybe poor ventilation) Cleaning bleach products also cause it after I've sprayed the bathroom. I've heard lifeguards at pools complain of this and swimmers use inhalers because of chemical allergies. You do need to go to the doctor and let them figure it out. (could be pneumonia, bronchitis etc.) It took 3 ER visits (chest x-ray) and many doctors/asthma doctor to help my son. At first they said virus should go away...well it didn't..so try something else!! Unfortunately you just have to keep going back until they figure it out. Try to stop using all sprays indoors (air freshener,cologne, cleaners) Use vinegar to clean surfaces and put baking soda for tub scrub.Take care!! PLEASE DO GO TO THE DOCTOR!!! Good luck from MA mom

  • Coughs due to bacterial or viral upper respiratory infections may be effectively treated with botanical and homeopathic therapies.

  • Coughs due to bacterial or viral upper respiratory infections may be effectively treated with botanical and homeopathic therapies.Though I think my issue is more environmental than any bacterial orviral issue (though it can turn into that if things get worse), whatbotanical and homeopathic therapies do you know of that work well?
