Is she having shortness of breath,chest pain?
Any history of hypertension,diabetes,etc?
Duration of symptoms?
Is she taking any other medicines?
She said her stomach hurt from the wheezing. She claims she's been wheezing all day but I am unsure if this is true. She has diabetes and is on some medication but it hasn't been changed in a while and I've never heard of it doing this before. Some of our other residents have had colds recently. Is it possible that's all it is? She does not smoke
As such wheezing is a classical sign of asthmatic bronchitis.
Probably this can also be allergic and triggering factor can be changing season,cough,cold etc
Usually broncho-dilators and anti allergic medications are prescribed.
I would suggest a clinical examination by a doctor in first place to confirm the sign and symptoms you are describing.
Persistent wheezing can be a dangerous sign and can be associated with severe asthma and can cause respiratory distress.
Wheezing is like whistling sound while breathing and can also be felt with a stethoscope as well while chest auscultation.
Sometimes,symptoms can be related to cardiac asthma.
So further EKG must be done in her case.
Having said this,if possible visit ER.
Hope this helps.
