Chest discomfort

Wheezing 

  • If you find out you have bronchitis while you’re experiencing asthma, you might observe a wheezing sound while breathing.

Breathlessness

  • Blocked respiratory lining and swelling of the lungs makes breathing problematic. You might suffer from being out of breath, particularly while doing physical activity.

Exhaustion

  • Due to being out of breath, the level of oxygen in your body might diminish. This will lead to exhaustion and weakness.

Fever

  • With severe bronchitis, you might experience fever. If your cough is insistent for longer than one month it could develop into chronic bronchitis, where extremely high fever can occur.

 

Causes Of Bronchitis

  • The slim mucous lining of the airways starts to become inflamed.
  • The cells within this lining might discharge fluids as a result of the swelling.
  • Coughing is a reaction that works to get rid of secretions within the lungs.

 

Symptoms Of Chronic Bronchitis include:

  • Constant cough that might produce mucous
  • Out of breath
