Bronchitis / Chest Cold FAQs
There is a severe inflammation of the airways in the lungs called the bronchi (acute bronchitis) and the bronchioles (bronchiolitis). The bronchial tubes swell and produce mucus, which causes a person to cough. Asthma and asthmatic-type wheezing can co-exist, causing bouts of coughing especially at night.
A diagnosis of bronchitis can be delayed because symptoms may be mild or possibly attributable to other conditions that precede it or are still lingering on.
Common symptoms of bronchitis include a wet cough with mucus (white sputum or yellow phlegm), bouts of coughing, chest pain with coughing, shortness of breath, and fever with chills. A chest X-ray may or may not show evidence of an infection but can help rule out pneumonia.
