Hi there,
I was wheezy for a couple months in november-december 2006.
I think it was from a gymnastics place I went to.....there was a lot of people breathing/sweating throughout the place.
I got better around January....then moved to California in april & I've been wheezy occasionally. Just when I thought I got over it (over the Christmas holidays in Canada) It seems to have come back.
Although I dont have problems breathing.....I'm wondering what it is....I should probably check with the doctor....although I just had a physical a month ago when I wasn't wheezy.
I'm only wheezy when I breath way out......just regular breathing I'm fine.
I dont think I should be wheezy when I breathe way out....but then again maybe I just shouldn't breathe way out. :)
Any thoughts? ideas of the cause or suggestions?

Thank you,

Chewy

  • I have no family history of breathing problems.I'm 34 years old.....used to smoke....quit about 3 years ago.No I've never gotten to the point of breathlessness. Its just if I exhale & push then I'm wheezy. I've never had any allergies...not sure if the air around here is a factor....although I was wheezy for a while in Canada too.I hear a lot on the news here saying how the air quality is bad this week....I'm surprised.....never hear that sort of thing around Vancouver B.C.

  • Hi Chewy Well that was a quick response.. I wouldnt worry yourself over this matter. When u force out what we call ERV http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lung_volumes)or expiratory reserve volume u can actually create almost a false wheeze. Your squeezing out a volume of air that normally remains in your lung during normal breathing. When u squeeze this volume out u can actually squeeze airways that normally arent squeezed causing a late end expiratory wheeze. Ask some of your friends to do what u do more than likely u will hear the same result.. If this isnt the case your years of smoking could have causedmild obstruction in your upper airway causing this wheeze.As long as your not symptomatic with this wheeze i wouldnt worry to much.-AnonymousRespiratory Care Practitioner

  • In mid July I was diagnosed with bronchitis. Had 2 rounds of antibiotics. Mid August I was diagnosed with asthma. Have never had it before. My chest does not get tight. My throat is where the wheeziness comes from. I have spells of severe coughing, where I can't get my breath. Dr has put me on singulair and one inhaler with steroids (am & pm) and the other inhaler for when I get wheezy/coughing. 56 years old, no smoking. It just doesn't feel like it's my lungs, but my throat. Constantly clearing throat. Have had lung x-ray, sinus CT scan, PFT-which shows mild asthma, other tests negative. This wheezing drives me crazy, wakes me up at night. Any thoughts? Thanks.

  • [ChewyYou may have asthma. Ask Doctor...he will give you inhaler. If it is not all the time..then maybe you are getting some kind of irritant ..like in the gym...that causes a flair up of your asthma.
