    Advice Welcome!

    I have developed shortness of breath lately and am very unsure what might be causing it.

    Over the several decades of my life respiratory issues have never emerged before. A few potential issues that might be involved, though, are a mold problem that we waited quite some time to fix up and then dry walling afterwards which I was exposed to (we fixed this up about a year ago), there are some dental problems that I intend to investigate soon, possibly some nutrition deficiencies as well though I have started on daily multivitamins and do feel better, while the wheeze remains.

    What is most concerning is that on my exhale my respiratory tract shuts down completely. I can push through the inhale, it is mostly the exhale that is a problem. Yet, during the day I am almost entirely unaware of the problem, though there is occasional wheezing when I stress it. It is mostly nighttime that is the big worry as I have been waking up with headaches
    and on first rising my ability to exhale is greatly compromised.

    I went to a doctor about this and was prescribed Pulmicort. The doctor seemed quite perplexed by my presentation. Never smoked, smoke free house, no history of respiratory issues, ... A big mystery.

    A suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Might there be any alternative medicines that might be helpful (e.g. honokiol)?

    I would see a pulmonologist for complete asthma testing. That's the only way to know for sure.
