Why am I suffering from headache, cold and breathlessness?

Q: I am a 40 years old woman suffering from asthma for the past 20 years. Now, I am suffering from headache, cold and cough and breathlessness for the last eight months. Why am I suffering from this?

A:It appears your asthma is inadequately controlled. I would suggest you avoid triggers and monitor your peak flow. Sinus drainage can worsen asthma and you should consider saline nasal rinse and other treatment for sinus congestion. Also, a quick relief inhaler with albuterol will help relieve symptoms. Some patients need more intensive treatment with prednisone or nebulizers. If symptoms are not better, a chest radiograph may also help rule out structural lung disease which can act like asthma. Kindly share this information with your doctor and hope you feel better soon.
