Bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchioles, or tubes, that carry air into the lungs. When inflammation occurs, a person can experience cough, wheezing and excess mucus in the lungs. Acute bronchitis lasts 10-14 days and is typically caused by a viral infection while chronic bronchitis lasts for 3 months or greater. Chronic bronchitis is common in smokers.
“Both migraine and nonmigrainous headache were approximately 1.5 times more likely among those with current asthma, asthma related symptoms, hay fever, and chronic bronchitis than those without. The association increased with increasing headache frequency.”1
