Re: wheezing on inhale-could this be asthma?

hmmm, asthma is normally on the exhale, but can be on inhalation too. Normally that only happens during severe attacks and is called stridor, but everyones asthma is different. A lot of breathing problems are agravated by lying flat, try proping yourself up at night it may help. When my asthma is bad then I sleep practically upright! Also if the prob is reflux, then this should help that too. Sometimes I get wht feels like a wheeze on my left side but I think it is actually a weeny bit of mucus moving around or my tummy rumbling a little.
If you are still concerned I would go back and bug my Dr though!
Take care
