I'm having troubles with my breathing
July 1, 2008 12:26pm CST
HI everyone. I've had difficulty breathing over the past few months. I've had test after test and everything has come back normal and I don't have asthma. But I was wondering if humidity can affect your breathing? I live in a very humid area and wasn't sure if this could be the reason why I'm having a hard time.

good day. Do you live in high altitude? If yes how long. High altitude have low oxygen (thin air) and it can register as difficulty of breathing. What test had been done to you? Do you have your cell count? as well as hemoglobin and hematocrit to rule out anemia.

first thing is, is there any particular time of the day that you had difficulty breathing? another is allergies do come and goes to everyone without knowing it, specially those caused by airborne. do you have stuffy nose all the time or at a give time of the day? lastly, YES, humidity plays a big role in breathing pattern alterations. it is because of the air circulation in the horizon being trapped with in.. it's just like you cover yourself or your entire body with a blanket when you sleep. noticed how poor air circulation would be later on? staying outdoor for long ain't not a good idea too.. until then..

I'm not a doctor or anything, but as someone who lives in a very humid area as well, from my own experience yes, it can affect your breathing. It does this especially to my father. I don't know if this is what is bothering you or not, but it does affect people around here. Hope you get some relief.
