Chronic Bronchitis

Authored by - Julie Eversole Operations Manager


If you have chronic bronchitis, you know it can be a life-limiting condition. All of us want the freedom to live an active lifestyle, but with chronic bronchitis, that freedom is subject to the symptoms.


At LCOA, I get to help patients break free from chronic bronchitis—and return to the lifestyle they enjoyed before symptoms took over.


What exactly is chronic bronchitis? Well, chronic means persistent or recurring… Symptoms are ever-present. There might be good days and bad days, but with chronic bronchitis, the patient is always experiencing some degree of discomfort. Bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from the lungs.


So what does chronic bronchitis look like? Well, symptoms include:

  • Cough – Ongoing dry cough or cough with phlegm

  • Sputum Production – Coughing up and spitting out the material produced in the respiratory tract

  • Shortness of Breath – Frequent respiratory infections, shortness of breath, gasping for air, or wheezing

  • Chest Heaviness – Discomfort, pressure, aching, squeezing, or painful feeling in your chest

  • Frequent Flare-Ups – Continual coughing and fatigue or malaise lasting weeks to months

Chronic may sound like there’s no hope, but that’s not true! Every day, I’m able to help patients achieve a symptom-free life.
