Bronchitis is an infection of the main airways of the lungs (bronchi), causing them to become irritated and inflamed.
The main symptom is a cough, which may bring up yellow-grey mucus (phlegm). Bronchitis may also cause a sore throat and wheezing.
Other symptoms of bronchitis are similar to those of other infections, such as the common cold or sinusitis, and may include:
-runny or blocked nose
-aches and pains
If you have bronchitis, your cough may last for several weeks after other symptoms have gone. You may also find that continual coughing makes your chest and stomach muscles sore.
Some people may experience shortness of breath or wheezing, due to inflamed airways. However, this is more common with long-term (chronic) bronchitis.
Long-term (chronic) bronchitis
Chronic bronchitis is often known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
The symptoms of COPD can include:
-increasing breathlessness when exercising or moving around
-a persistent cough that brings up mucus (phlegm)
-frequent chest infections
The symptoms are often worse in the winter, and it is common to have two or more flare-ups a year. A flare-up is when your symptoms are particularly bad.
