Can you wheeze and not have ashma? I think it is caused by the high pollen count. I'm allergic to tree pollen, mold, dust, cats, and dogs. I do not have any problems breathing when I notice the wheeze. It will clear up by itself, but it's scarry. I saw my Dr. last week and he gave me Allegra. I took it one day, and it didn't help. So I went back to Benadryl.
<br>Sometimes, I get a tickle in my throat and then I might cough (not always). Then I'll notice this high pitch sound when I take a deep breathe. If I breathe normal, I can't hear it. It seems like once I clear mucus, it stops. I also have post nasal drip.<br>
My Dr. checked my lungs and did a Peak flow test. He told me my lungs were normal. While taking the Peak flow, I cold hear the wheeze sound, but I still passed. <br>
Does anyone else have this? I've been using Robitussin, which seems to help.<br>
While living in the midwest, I sneezed for weeks. After moving to the Northwest, I noticed the symptoms disappeared. Or they are so minimual, I did not notice. Also, we have a lot of pine trees. But this year is different.
I argued the same thing with my doctor about my daughter's wheezing as I have asthma also and recognized the symptoms. She ended up going to an allergist who performed the Peak Flow test. She was on the bottom end of normal. The allergist then had her use a rescue inhailer them repeated the test 15 minutes later. She improved by 15%!!! and was diagnosed with mild asthma. It is possible for the symptoms to "disappear" on their own. As for your allergy medication, I found that 12 hour Allegra D and Rynatan work the best. They seem to be one of the best 2 drugs on the market. The not only have the antihistamine, but also a decongestant (which is most likely what is in the Robitussin). The two ingredients work well together. You can also take Benedryl with these medications on extreme days. Hang in there! The pollen counts around the great lakes region has been very high! ;-)
