Asthmatic bronchitis that just won't go away

I am really sick again. I was starting to get better, but I've now had a relapse. I've had this for almost a month and a half now.

I can't sleep at night because of the severe coughing and wheezing. Breathing is really difficult at times.

I've already been to the doctor, and she prescribed antibiotics and an inhaler. My condition improved somewhat immediately after I finished the antibiotics, but now I'm pretty much right back where I started. And the problem with the inhaler is that I'm only supposed to take a puff from it every 4 hours, and only 4 times a day. Unfortunately, I find that it's only effective for about an hour after I take it, so I am miserable for the remaining three hours. Also, 4 doses a day, every 4 hours, obviously does not cover 24 hours.

I have been doing some reading about this condition, and from what I understand, there's not even any point in going back to the doctor. Once I've taken antibiotics and it hasn't helped, there's nothing else they can do. I've just got to wait it out, I guess.

But I am feeling really bad and I'm downright scared at times when I'm having trouble getting my breath.

You are added to my prayer list for continued prayer.

Also, I may have some helpful ideas if you can give me more infoormation. (Any chest congestion, stuffy nose, asma, &/or other?)

Post answers here or PM me

Lifting You to God,

Check-out:

Mucinex is an OverTheCounter 12hour cough expectorant WITHOUT any decongestant or anti-histamine also there is 12hour Mucinex DM, with cough expectorant & suppressant.

I hope it is as helpful to you as it's been to me.

Chest congestion: Yes.

Runny nose: Not really.

Asthma: I don't have a history of it, but I am definitely having the symptoms of it now. From what I understand, it has been triggered by the bronchitis.

I had all the usual cold symptoms before I took the antibiotics, such as runny/stuffy nose, sore throat, fever, etc., but that has all gone away now. Now I just have the severe cough and wheezing (mostly on the exhale, but in the past couple of days it's been on the inhale too). I do not have a lot of mucous; it is a dry cough, painful at times. The worst part is the occasional breathing difficulties though.

Lord, I lift up my sister in Christ that is suffering sickness in her body. I pray peace over her and I pray against all fear, stress or any anxiety going on in her or around her and I pray for your perfect peace and that you will touch her body and bring healing in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

I have had severe bronchitis and contracted asthma by the time I was 50. Since you also are new to having this condition I will tell you what helps me and what doesn't.

1). It is imperative you stay away from your asthma triggers.

2). Inhalers do not work. PERIOD. In fact, my inhaler (as you said too) only works for half an hour to an hour, and then the asthma gets worse! I just found out that if it makes your asthma worse, don't use it at all.

3). If you can, get an air purifier machine. Mine really helps.

4). A home remedy for asthma is a little apple cider/juice in blackberry brandy. Measure this half and half. A sip or two works instantly. I used this on my son when he was growing up, and now he is asthma free. I mix up a pint at a time and stick it in the fridge. This way it is handy even in the middle of the night.

5). Light exercise daily helps when you are not experiencing asthma symptoms. I believe it keeps the attacks from happening so frequently, and also makes them less severe when they do happen. My son was always swimming, and I credit this exercise to helping him grow out of it. His was a bad case, but now that he is 23, he barely remembers it.

6.) Get as much rest as possible during an attack. If your fingernails turn blue, get to the hospital emergency room as soon as possible. I did not know this, and had it for a while before someone (a nurse) told me.

Hope this helps. However, what works for one person may not work for another. Will pray you heal quickly and permanently. Asthma is a terrible thing to have.

Wow, thank you for this advice! This is really helpful!

About the blackberry brandy, I have never heard of that. Do you think I could get it at any liquor store?

Thanks to everyone who has prayed for me. I really appreciate it! God bless you all!
