to my knowledge (as an asthma sufferer) the only common illnesses I know of that can cause lungs to swell shut are asthma and an ailment known as 'lung shock'.
Asthma is the most common, 'lung shock' can happen after serious accidents and is 99% fatal in cases.
maybe NickD has asthma? Has he looked into that possibility? It's a frightening condition even when you have it minorly. It cn still be fatal however mildly you might have it too.
BTW, I know what triggers my asthma, and you're right I do avoid them! But I havent a CLUE what triggers my CPH!! But you bet if I did I would!! (smile)
