Bronchitis symptoms Millions of Americans suffer from BRONCHITIS SYMPTOMS every day. What they experience isn’t that much different from many other people who are short of breath when exercising, being outside in the cold, or just trying to get out of bed in the morning. So how do you know you have BRONCHITIS SYMPTOMS? The easiest way to know for sure is to check with your doctor. He or she will ask you a number of questions to help them determine if what you’re experiencing is a BRONCHITIS SYMPTOM or something else. People who experience BRONCHITIS SYMPTOMS usually do so because they are smokers. So your doctor will undoubtedly ask you if you or someone you live with smoke. However, there are a number of other reasons and your doctor should ask you about these as well. For example, do you have allergies? Many people who are exposed to something they are allergic to, will have a flare up of their breathing problems. Do you have a recent cold or infections in your nose or throat? What type of work do you do? Some people who work with coal, grain or woolen goods have exposure to other chemicals, which produce BRONCHITIS SYMPTOMS. You really don’t have to go to Medical School to figure this out, if you stop for a moment and think about what your lungs do. They take in air, don’t they?

So if you aren’t getting enough air, what will you fell and see? These BRONCHITIS SYMPTOMS include feeling short of breath. You’re doctor may call this dyspnea, the latin term for feeling short of breath. You may start to wheeze because you can’t get the air into your lungs due to the inflammation happening in your lungs from smoking, an infection, or allergies. You may also experience cyanosis. That’s the latin term for your lips and fingernails looking bluer than normal. This is because you can’t get enough oxygen into your lungs due to the inflammation. Once your doctor determines that you have BRONCHITIS SYMPTOMS, the doctor will set out to determine if these BRONCHITIS SYMPTOMS have left evidence of damage to your lungs and if so, how much and what needs to be done about it. After listening to your lungs, you may need chest x-rays or breathing tests to see how harm the tubes to your lungs (the bronchi) have become and what the best treatment for this is. The important thing to remember is that if you have BRONCHITIS SYMPTOMS, you need to get checked out by your doctor to help you reduce any harm to your lungs and most importantly so you can breath better.
