Glad you called. The wheezing may be a sign of infection. Praying the doctor can advise you & that you feel better soon.

Lea, I'm sorry you had a rough night. The good thing is you saw the doctor & was given a nebulizer. Now you'll have it when you need it again. The steroids will keep you awake at night( been there, done that) but I found that propping pillows up against the headboard on my bed or sleeping up on the recliner helps reduce coughing & eases my difficulty with breathing. Be sure to drinking a lot a water. I'm praying for you, that you get the rest you need for your body to heal & that you have a good recovery. God bless & pls give us updates.

Do you have a nebulizer? If you do you could try using just plain water to moisturize your airways. My wife uses a cpap for that very reason. She uses distilled water but plain water would work.

Hello

I drink alot of water. It seems to clear my throat very well. Also if your not breathing well and in a panic then go to emergency and get help. Contact your doctor dont let him forget you. Learn all you can about your illness and discuss it with your doctor. Your life is important dont let your doctor forget you.

God Bless
