Why is my nose ALWAYS stuffy? Why do i wheeze a lot?
For the past 2 months or so, i have had a stuffy nose when a wake up and then it lessens throughout the day. But it’s still there, I sneeze more often. But i don’t have allergies and i do not have a cold. Also

That really sounds like hayfever… especially with the wheezing and how it is worse in the mornings. You should probably see a doctor, because the wheezing should be treated with a puffer, and the stuffy nose and sneezing can probably be treated with a simple over the counter anti-histamine like claratyne or rhinocort.

Good luck and I hope you start feeling better, trust me, I know how much it gives you a bad start to the day when you wake up feeling like crap 🙁

I’m taking Symbicort, but I still start to wheeze every three-four hours?

Is it because I was just recently (within the last three days,) put on the medication?
Is it safe for me to use my other inhaler, (Proventil,) when I start to wheeze?

continue taking Symbicort, keep your inhaler handy, and use the nebulizer. follow up with your doctor.

absolutely use your inhaler when you are wheezing. That’s what it’s for. The Symbicort helps prevent an attack and is not to be used during one. It will do nothing. If the proventil isn’t helping after a few puffs then go to the ER. Let them give you nebulizer treatments. That should clear it up. If it is happening frequently, like every day call your doctor so he/she can change your medicine around to something that does work.
Please remember what I said about the Symbicort, do not take that when you are wheezing. Only use the proventil. Take the Symbicort as your doctor ordered it one or two times a day.
