@trellg132– Absolutely asthma can cause you to feel like your lungs feel irritated or inflamed. I believe that I asked you if you are seeing a pulmonologist, and if you are using any inhalers. Are you? What are they?

@trellg132 – Pulmonologists are experts in all things that involve the lungs, as you probably know. Since you are not feeling better with your current situation I suggest getting a referral and seeing one. I only use albuterol as a rescue inhaler but there are many more that help breathe more easily, help more with inflammation and irritation. Can you tell me what other things that you do to help reduce your symptoms, or other medications?

I saw your post and I use a pro inhaler for fast results but the symbicort just feels like no help but thrush all in my mouth and throat. I use to use over the counter in 1992 and it was better than any they have on prescription. It was 20$ at Wal-Mart
All good things never last in the public when it helps.

@kp5450121– oh no! That's not a great response to helping you feel better.Thrush is a response, especially from inhaled corticorticosteroids. And the steroids can shift that balance leading to an increase in fungal growth and oral candidiasis or thrush. Inhaled steroids are not the only cause though. Suppression of the immune system can cause thrush, i.e: chemotherapy, radiation, HIV, anemia, and diabetes mellitus.
Do you have any other problems other than using you inhaler that could have caused the thrush? Are you treating it? How?

Hi @trellg132, can you elaborate a bit more about the inflammation you are experiencing? What diagnosis do you have? What symptoms are you experiencing?

@trellg132, I moved your message to the discussion you started yesterday about inflammation of the lungs. Have you since been diagnosed with Pleurisy?

Here is some information about the condition from Mayo Clinic
– Pleurisy https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pleurisy/symptoms-causes/syc-20351863

What treatment options are being suggested for you?

@trellg132– I'm thrilled that you are feeling better. Pleurisy does take a while to heal. As you know, from your own experience, it takes a while to diagnose. Are you still resting a lot?
