I am wheezing more and more when I lie down I notice it is

Customer Question

I am wheezing more and more when I lie down I notice it is abated by exercise (swimming). I had a ''slight;y abnormal'' ECG rating 6 months ago but my wheezing has been progressing over 18 months and I am a heavy snorer. Ideas welcome.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I think I have drug resistant klebsiella pnuemonia and possibly e-col (althouih my urination is good). Thoughts welcome
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

If you had pneumonia with Klebsiella you would be in the ICU

You need a sleep study.

Apnea can cause these problems.

You need pulmonary function testing to see if you have asthma.

I would suspect this is probably COPD due to your smoking

how long have you smoked?

have you ever had pulmonary tests?
