asthma and swallowing
cwille posted:
well, back in hospital again, 9th or 10th time this year, asthma seems to be kicking again. This time though i had a test done to check to see if i am swallowing anything into my lungs. (I have bad coughing attacks) well, it was found out that i was actually swallowing fluids down into my lungs. which gave me pnuemonia this time. This was interesting because the tech said that a person my age ,44 , usually doesn't get this problem it's usually older people, not saying that causes my asthma, but it exasberates it. I was just wondering if anybody else out there has had the same problem.

god bless.
