Could be asthma. Could be reflux.

Re: hard to breathe when lying down,sign of what

I have the same problem here. I am asthmatic as a kid but I never had any serious problems controlling it. I use MDIs regularly and I have attacks occasionally.

But now, I really have trouble with my wheezing and the splitting pressure on my lungs. Even when I'm relaxed, I have difficulty in breathing. The most difficult for me is when I lie down on my back, it seems like I cannot take in enough air to my lungs. When I lie on my side, my breathing returns to normal but I still have the slight wheezing.

Please give me some advice.

Go see your pulmonologist. You probably need your meds adjusted.

I also have this problem, but now even my rescue inhaler only works for a short period of time. I have had to take it 4 times daily for the past few days.
