{BRONCHITIS LUNGS}

Parker DonatContributor IOctober 6, 2008

So the past two weeks I’ve been pretty sick fighting a cold, the flu, and now bronchitis. I topically never get sick, but this bug somehow got me. Least I don’t have pneumonia or anything.Saturday after conference I slept at my sisters house. I didn’t even get to sleep a wink that night. In the morning my wonderful mom took me to the doctor to get me checked up (that has never happened in 25 years). And the doctor told me that I had bronchitis. So now I have cough syrup and an inhaler. Yep, an inhaler. I was against the inhaler but my dear ol’ mom made me get it.

Definition: Bronchitis is an inflammation of the main air passages to the lungs.

Causes: Acute bronchitis generally follows a viral respiratory infection. Initially, it affects your nose, sinuses, and throat and then spreads to the lungs. Sometimes, you may get another (secondary) bacterial infection in the airways. This means that bacteria infect the airways, in addition to the virus.
