I have never been exposed to smoking, i've spent 1-2 nights in a hotel room with smoking, I started to have coughing and about 6 months it got really bad where I was coughing up blood and it was a dry cough, I have wheezing in my breathing and when I breathe out you can hear it in my lungs, and chest pains. I was given budesonide/formoterol fumarate dihydrate powder for inhalation which found out is given to chemotherapy patients and It has gone better but 5 months later my coughing is starting to come back. Could I have lung cancer or OCPD or Asthma?

    The short answer is NO, but you need to ask the medical people you saw for a diagnosis, we can't diagnose you over the internet and we're not doctors.   However I don't see how there could possibly be any connection between a couple of nights of exposure to cigarette smoke and your current symptoms.   

    Ask more questions of the right people ASAP

    I agree there is no way you can get anything from inhaling a bit of second hand smoke!   You will get more pollution walking down a busy street from the traffic.  

    You do need to see your doctor though as none of us are medically trained on here and even if we were we couldn't diagnose you over the internet.  x

    Sounds like you have something else going on....but you really need to go to a Dr or hospital emergency room...especially if u are coughing up blood. That may be serious...let's hope it's please go see and keep us posted. Ladyjack51
