Customer Question
.I have a respiratory...

.I have a respiratory infection of some kind...that is not an overly big deal in itself. However, I had 2 "breathing challenges" earlier today -- the last of which, I decided to go to the emergency room. They said my lungs sound "fine", and they PA was guessing it was a bronchospasm....

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I'm just wondering what the doctors' thought was about bronchospasm. I've just had another one 20 minutes ago. Not sure what to do.

when these happen do you get into a coughing spasm and feel a bit out of breath?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
