My wife keeps coughing at midnight and has breathing problem sometimes. So, doctor suggested an x-ray. I am attaching the report here for your reference. I tried searching information online and got some details, but want to know the exact cause, stage and treatment. So, please guide me. Thank you.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
It would be very helpful if you would share how long she has the symptoms of cough.
Also, did she have any associated symptoms like fever, body ache? Did they bring up phlegm? Is there any history of weight loss or change in appetite?
I assume that your symptoms were less than a week and this may well represent acute bronchitis.
It can be viral or bacterial. Keeping in mind the current viral season (influenza), it is most likely viral in origin. But, I can be more certain if you would kindly answer the questions above.
