Chest cold lasting 3 weeks

Common Questions and Answers about Chest cold lasting 3 weeks

chest

I had protected sex 1 month ago and about a week and a half later I ended up with a minor cold (minor sore throat, chest and nasal congestion and productive cough and no temperature). The cold lasted about a week and a day. Around 3 days after the cold symptoms diminished I got a sore throat again, only very minor and in one general spot near my right tonsil and slight tenderness under my right ear. As stated the soreness is minor but has lasted nearly 3 weeks now.
However, I had never had one as long as I did the last one. It lasted 3 weeks. It was bright red and wouldn't let go, but has seemed to stopped right now. I had an ultrasound and it shows that I have 1 cm of thickening in the endometrial lining, and I have an enlarged uterus. The doctor called and have to get a hysterscopy and a D & C. I am really scared about this. Any advice?
My mom has had some kind of cold/bronchitis/cough for the last six weeks, and it doesn't appear to be getting any better. You can hear the mucous rattling around when she coughs, but she says she cannot get it up -- it just moves around in her upper chest. The cough is a full, phleghmy bark, and it tends to come in fits. She'll be fine for a while and then hacking.
a dry cough that occurs at night and clear mucus in excess which will for a duration of 2 weeks it the cold goes away and returns. This was recurrent for the past 3 months. Then there was a change. These symptoms continued however as of last month a new symptom occured. I don't realize I'm cold but I will be find in regard to body temperature I don't feel cold--nothing till I go for bed and get under the covers I have a severe case of chills throughout my body.
sensitivity to cold around my nose and face; stinging eye (eye doctor said allergies, even though I have never had any before); perineum/generalised twitching; sore throat for two months. I know this is contagious as I have passed it on to someone else who suffers from similar symptoms. I was checked out at 3 weeks by an infectious disease specialist (before some of the major symptoms started).
I could feel them tensing and shaking--like you would if you were shivering in the cold. Violent shakes. Went to the ER and they did blood tests and urine test and whatever they did came back ok. My thyroid was checked about a year ago and was fine. I've been having hot flashes/sweats a few days before my period--dunno if that's related. I just upped my Prozac to 40 from 20 like 3 days ago. I've been on 40 b4, most of my life in fact, and this never happened.
- I think the symptoms get worse before I get any other sort of virus or infection, like a cold. I went back to the doctor. She told me that my bilirubins were back to normal and that I probably had a long lasting virus that cleared out of my system. She doesn't understand why I'm not feeling better. The next step is to order an upper endoscopy. With my symptoms now, I have some days where I feel almost normal, and some days where I can't even get out of bed because I feel so ill.
She told my my chest pain was most likely caused by being sick weeks before and to not worry too much about it. She said when she listened to my lungs I made a "wooooosh" instead of the normal, non-sick "woosh".

(8 EKG's, 24 and 48 hr holter, stress test, echo, 2 chest xrays, 3 lots of blood tests and all normal cept a episode of fast heart rate lasting 15mins and my cardiologist is unsure whether is normal or abnormal in the 24hr holter so they put me on a 48hr holter to try catch it again. My 48hr monitor im still awaiting the results of and of my lastest blood test. i've been assured that the pain is not cardiac but i can't accept it.
I have had a few cardiolite stress tests over the years and all show there is no evidence I ever had a heart attack. Six weeks ago I was drinking a very cold frozen beverage and felt like I froze my esophagus. I went into atrial fibrillation a few minutes later and drove to the emergency room. It converted on its own (heart returned to normal sinus rhythm) before I could be given medication (the episode lasted about 2 hours), so they sent me home.

Throat was sore and it was hard to talk and swallow solids. 3 days after I got , what I thought was a simple cold with nasal congestion and low grade fever lasting couple of days.

I was previously a heavy drinker however in the last 4 months I have cut back to safe levels. Three weeks ago I had a funny turn whilst sitting on my bed watching TV. The episode included lightheadedness, chest pain, cold sweating, shaking, nausea, shortness of breath and tingling in my left arm. I reported to A&E that evening and was given an ECG which showed up fine however my BP was 150/85.
Pulmonologist says I have bronchiolitis. I've never heard of that lasting so long! Now it's 3 months later, still have a bit of a cough, trying to ween myself off the tussinex (doctor's advisement), still tired, achey, lungs hurt and spasm a little with deep breath. Has anyone heard of this type of thing? I'm at a loss and frustrated that I've been sick for so long. Any ideas would be welcome.
The pain is sharp but appears and ends abruptly lasting a few seconds. Other then this I have done 10 mile treks, walk 3-4 miles most days, sometimes jog, walk up steephill at a brisk pace every other day. Sometimes walk up the stairs 30 times, which gets my sysyem going but don't suffer any pains. In the recent freezing temps we have had in UK I have walked and jogged in the park and had no problems. But why do I get pains when I relax in bed or twist or stretch myself?
old female who is having chest pain. I have lost 25 lbs in the past 3 months and the pain started 3 weeks ago. The pain is on my left side right through my heart. I experience spurts of rapid heart beats (especially when I lay on my side) flutters, knifing pain right through the heart, pinching and also I have had a tightening feeling in the center of my chest, like I need to take my bra off. But when I do, it only relieves the pain a little.
I did well for about 2-3 weeks then started having chest pain and right shoulder pain, getting worse with activity. I have had many tests, heart tests, MRI, x-rays, and they can't find any reason for my pain. My cardiologist didn't help me much after the procedure and now I have gone for a second opinion and hope and pray that he can help me! I just want to be able to do normal things without pain. I know this is not normal and it didn't start until after the ablation.
Why do you still have these giant sort of miscellaneous posts that get too large to follow? Just wondering. I see you are breaking them down into 1,2 and 3 etc etc...but why not just everyone make posts when they have something they want to share? That way, you can find posts more easily.
Tietze syndrome usually comes on abruptly, with chest pain radiating to your arms or shoulder and lasting several weeks. It differs from chostochondritis as Tietz syndrome involves inflammation...should show with blood tests, and apparently the blood tests are negative! If those tests are normal and your physical exam is consistent with costochondritis, your doctor will diagnose costochondritis as the cause of your chest pain.
My main symptoms were labored breathing I had not had before under light exercise, with a little chest pain. Twice diagnosed as minor mitral valve problem, 1 year ago and 3 years ago. Stress tests were negative. Then end of December 2005, frequent chest pain getting longer and longer with cold sweats. Daytime, nighttime, walking uphill. Walking in the mountains. EKGs showed a healthy heart, enzyme tests said no heart attack had occurred. We finally insisted on an angiogram. Result ?
It is mostly on the left side of my chest, near the center. I went to the doctor 3 times. The first time he did an EKG and a chest x-ray, and did not find any problems. He said it wes probably heartburn. The second time I went, I also had some pain in my back, between my spine and shoulder blade, on the left side. A different doctor there said that I had a pinched nerve and that the pain was radiating into my chest.
My pain never stopped after that- I was experiencing constant chest pressure and shortness of breath but my doctor here did not pay any attention. He was saying that “etiology of my pain is not known but it shouldn’t be anything cardiac since my stress test was ok”.Last month I ended up in the emergency room with re-stenosis /one of the stents was clogged 99% and another stent was placed on the top of those two. This time was Xience 5- drug eluted stent that went on the top of the other two.
I prefer sleeping on my left side. Oddly, 3 weeks ago, one morning at 7am, I was having a dream I had just arrived in the states after doing a 1.5 year round the world trip to find I was so jet lagged I had acute chest pain. I do not know if I was actually experiencing the chest pain while dreaming, because it seemed so real, but I immediately woke up and no pain. As you can imagine this makes it hard to go to bed. I wonder how common this is?
I know what you mean about the cold; even if I feel pretty good in the winter, the cold bothers me to the bone with more stiffness etc. This whole thing is, sit and wait, wait, wait. It is very comforting knowing that we are not alone, when sometimes it feels as if we are. My legs too are the most bothersome at this time with lack of feeling, neuropathy etc. Keep in touch and I will do the same. Feel better!
however, before my cycle last month, I had a sharp ongoing chest pain in the middle of my chest lasting for at least 3 hrs. I get swelling around the cartlage sometimes, so I thought maybe it was related. Then, Monday of this week, I had a similar but tighter pain that was in the middle chest for about 15 minutes. I drank cold water, took an aspirin and it seemed to subside.

My 3 year old is also having high recurring fevers for the past few months. They seem to come every 2-4 weeks, lasting about 2 days and with no other symptoms except for maybe a headache (I think just due to the high fever) and maybe wanting to sleep a bit more (also fever related). His pediatrician is working with me on this and I have brought him there in full fever swing and she has examined him and found nothing wrong except for the fever. We also went for 2 rounds of blood tests so far..
About 4 years ago I had this same problem. I was sick with cold for about 4 days, I usually recover pretty quickly. Then I was left with phlegm type of build up in chest and throat for about 2-3 months. It would only happen in the morning around 10am- 3pm then went away. I could never spit up any phlegm. I do not know if it's coming from chest or what. I went to docs, he ordered x-rays and various other test and everything came back fine.
