Breath Often Sounds When Lying Down?
Hello. My breath sounds like a prolonged or whistling whistling sound when inhaling, but only occurs when lying down. I do not cough, not shortness of breath even normal just like healthy. If there is no breath activity, Why is that? Is the respiratory tract closed sputum? Thanks.

The sound of "ngik" occurs when air from the lungs exits through the narrowed airways due to the large amount of secretions or phlegm, thickening of the muscles and / or airways to shrink. This condition can occur in diseases:
1. Bronchial asthma
4. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
You should check with the nearest doctor. The doctor will conduct a medical interview and related physical examination. If necessary, the doctor will ask you to undergo supporting tests, such as spirometry tests, routine blood and chest X-rays. Later the doctor will provide treatment according to the cause of the disease in you.
Meanwhile, avoid sleeping at night in cold room temperatures. You can wear blankets and warm clothes if needed. Clean the house from dust every day, do not forget the corners and roof of the house. Try using two or more pillows during sleep and prioritize sleeping in an oblique position to the right. Consumption of lots of water, especially warm water, because it can thin the phlegm so it is easier to get out through coughing.
Thus hopefully useful.
