Tight chest in the morning
HI Doctor

My 62 yr old mother complains of a severe tight chest early in the morning. Her breath sounds wheezy during the day.

You advise will be greatly valued.

Hallo Fatcat
It sounds as if she may has asthma. Please take her to a doctor for examination as she may need prescription medication to open up the chest like an asthma pump or cortisone.
