Other Symptoms Of Bronchitis

The initial symptoms of bronchitis are similar to that of common cold like coughing, sore throat, muscle, and headaches, runny or blocked nose, tiredness- but if these last longer than a week or two, it should be tested.


 By the WebMD definition, “Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways that makes breathing difficult. With asthma, there is inflammation of the air passages that results in a temporary narrowing of the airways that carry oxygen to the lungs.”

Tightness In Chest

Asthma usually occurs in childhood but due to pollution and environmental problems, it can occur at any age now. Symptoms are coughing, shortness of breath, noise while breathing and a constant feeling of tightness in the chest. If you have any of these symptoms, you should immediately get tested. 

Irregular Heartbeat

According to WebMD, “In an arrhythmia, the heartbeats may be too slow, too rapid, too irregular, or too early. Rapid arrhythmias (greater than 100 beats per minute) are called tachycardias. Slow arrhythmias (slower than 60 beats per minute) are called bradycardias.”

The Symptoms

A tickle in the chest is one of the signs of arrhythmia. Mostly irregular heartbeat is not a serious health risk but if it is accompanied by dizziness or lightheadedness, fatigue, chest pain, fainting, shortness of breath- it is a serious concern.

Acid Reflux

Medicine Net defines acid reflux or heartburn as, “a common condition and an abnormal one in which acid in the stomach rises up into the esophagus. This occurs because the valve separating the contents of the stomach from the esophagus does not function properly.”
