Does anyone know why or what I have.I keep having trouble breathing and I thought I might just be sick but it's been almost a whole week now and I still have trouble breathing long deep breaths.I am also 289lbs pounds and have high blood pressure but have never EVER had trouble breathing.I think I have a upper respritory infection can this be healed with anti-biotics?Please someone help me I am scared.
Hi, if you have an URTI, then yes antibiotics will help. But typically, you would notice more symptoms than trouble breathing on it's own, crackling chest, congestion/phlegm. Are experiencing any of this? It is possible for a person to develop asthma later in life, and breathing difficulties can affect people more commonly if they have a high BMI. Really, you need to see your doctor. I know that is the easy answer, but no one here can really give you a diagnosis, and whatever is causing your breathlessness needs to be treated one way or another. I don't know if the abdominal pain is associated, or a seperate symptom that is coincidentally appearing at the same time? Please seek medical advice asap
As my friends say, go to the doctor now. Whether an ulcer, pneumonia, (not all cause coughing), heart congestion, this is serious. My rule of thumb is if I get scared, I had better listen to it. Please go.
Your weight has caught up with you and if you want to be better this needs treating now. Please let us know how you are doing once the doctor has examined you. We can support you through these problems. Karen
If you have a bacterial infection antibiotics would work. If its viral which things like colds are, then no it won't. Ulcers don't usually cause shortness of breath. They cause a gnawing pain below your breast bone, and it can go thru to your back. Eating will sometimes help the pain. Has the dr checked your lungs?
