This is a question mainly for people who have been diagnosed with tracheal stenosis or sublogttic stenosis.

I have had breathing issues since a cough attack in 2011 that present like pain in the right side of my chest, tight feeling at that place and the right side of the throat, back pain, wheezing in the throat when I exhale, shortness of breath like in my right side, phlegm feeling in the right side mainly

The pain was higher when I coughed so much but I still have some unpleasant symptoms there

I had chest CT scan with no contrast = normal
Chest x ray with no contrast = normal
throat endoscopy = small redness but not too much
spirometry = no asthma since bronchodilaters didn't help but a reduction in my smaller airways

For the ones that had this issue, are there other tests to see this rather than bronchoscopy?
Also any idea what I could have here?

It all began after a cough attack and been there since then

Also, for those of you who have it, are your symptoms constant as in always the same degree?
Do people with this condition have pain? does it hurt or cause back pain?

Alberto, if all the scope tests were normal, how did you get a diagnosis of tracheal stenosis? It sounds more like a lung problem than trachea.

There are lots of lung problems besides asthma.

No. i didn't get it. But since things are getting better too slow and I usually get pain I don't understand if maybe this could have been missed.

Maybe there's nothing but doctors don't know the cause of my wheezing sound when I exhale forcefully and I would like an answer to this. because I think it's behind my issues. Don't know if it's trachea, bronchi or lung based, but it causes pain and a shortness of breath feeling on one side.

I also wanna discard if it's a pain "in my head" due to so many years of coughing
