A tickle in your chest? I'm not sure what you mean...but I would make sure to mention it to the doctor when you go. :-)

Re: tickle in my chest

thanks for your reply midget. i really do appreciate it. the tickle feels like it is in my brochial tubes like bronchitis but i am coughing up nothing. tickle is the only word i know how to use. like when you have a tickle in your nose and have to sneeze this one causes me to cough. thanks again.

In most cases with asthma it feels like an elephant is sitting on your chest.

Ditto...it's more of a tight feeling, not a tickel.

Glad you're getting treatment for asthma. I am advair and have been on singular during certain time of the year. It helps with advair to rinse your mouth afterwards..if I don't I get hoarse. Did the doc give you an inhaler...like albuterol? Take care
