Does anyone get a headache along with wheezing?

  1. Hi Lucydiane and thanks for posting your inquiry. While you may hear back from our community members as to their experiences with headaches, I thought you might find it helpful to look over this article on that very subject: All the best, Leon (site moderator)

    1. Although there were some good points in this article, the headache I experience is different in that it is in the back of my head is only present when my breathing is compromised from an ongoing asthma flair-up.

      1. Hi again, Lucydiane. Everyone's experience with asthma is different. If this headache symptom persists (you say it occurs only when your breathing is compromised) or worsens even, you may want to bring it to your physician's attention. Wishing you the best, Leon (site moderator)

    2. I get them sometimes but mostly it's when I'm having a more severe attack with lots of coughing including when I've developed upper respiratory viruses or I start to stress out if my rescue inhaler isn't kicking in fully right away. Easiest way I've found to combat these types of headaches is too obviously sticking with your regimen and stay as calm as possible during a flare up or full blown attack and obviously getting in touch with a doctor as soon as possible and not overdosing on your rescue inhaler (as tempting as it may be when it feels like it just isn't working {I've learned the hard way not to do that as it can make your worse}). You are not alone in your battle and hopefully you'll find something that'll work for you!

      1. Hi (again) RockinRita03 and thanks for your comment. We appreciate you sharing what works for you in this situation (headaches). Wishing you the best, Leon (site moderator)
