    hard time breath with teen

    my daughter is having a hard time breathing when she lays flat on her back and she has been getting dizzy and complaining that her back has been hurting

    I don't know if it's helpful as I posted my situation yesterday. A mouth ago after I read something about breathing through the nose at night could help asthma. I trained myself not to breathe through my mouth and then it dramatically helps. Now I don't need to use the Symbicort at night and without waking up throughout the night looking for albuterol. I sleep on my left as it suggested on some website as the right lung is bigger in size. Hope it helps.
