I have severe chest congestion. This has been going on for about 3 months. It's strange because I will have constant congestion and cough one day and the next day I will be almost clear. I know that if I have congestion one day the next day I will not. I plan my days accordingly. My dr. has put me on antiboitics and presidone twice in the last 3 months, I've had a chest x-ray last week, shows nothing. I have had allergies all my life.
What you are experiencing is not unusual, following smoking cessation. This may continue for some time, even for months, as it gradually tapers off. On the remote chance that this material is unrelated to your quitting smoking, if it does not taper and, especially if it begins to worsen, you should have a chest x-ray and lung exam.

I am here to find help for a strange issue I've been having for a couple of months. It has been a reoccurring issue that every time I lay down, either to sleep/nap or to just lie down, I feel as if I become feverish. I feel like my head is swollen, I feel flush, the back of my eyes hurt, and it becomes better (no fever) after I sit up or go walking around until I lay back down again.
I am suffering from my second chest cold in as many months. I haven't had the flu in years (never get the flu shot), and in the past I have been able to fend off serious colds and flu with homeopathic remedies and things like Mucinex. But last month I suddenly developed a mild sore/ticklish throat and by the next day I was heavily congested in my chest. No stuffy nose, no fever, just horrible coughing and phlegm that was difficult to cough up. I also had very achy joints and bad headache.
I have had some congestion for almost 2 years now. I have taken Asthma medication for over a year, but have stopped in the last 3 months. I have take an Over the counter alergy med for the whole time and are now taking a prescription med. I have touble speaking without sounding raspy and at times have some shortness of breath. I was a singer until 2 years ago and now I can't hit the notes I used too. I don't have any phlem that comes up and I'm not coughing very much.
Complete resolution of acute bronchitis can take up to 3 months, so the persistent lung congestion is not worrisome. You should, however, have a chest x-ray to be sure you don't have an unresolved pneumonia. If you do, the cause would need to be determined. It could be useful for you to consult with your primary care doctor or with a lung specialist to determine what makes you "prone to frequent bouts of bronchitis.
I played tennis about 2 and half months ago and a few days later I felt heavy congestion in my chest with no mucas or coughing and no pain. At night it was difficult breathing but woke up with fairly clear breathing. I went to the doctor and had blood work and a Chest Xray and everything was normal. Over the past few years I have had refuxe and have taken prevacid. The doctor put me on a PPI thinking it could have been reflux that caused this.
I have had severe chest congestion, a sharp pain deep in the center of my chest, it causes shallow breathing because it hurts to breath in and causes a severe cough attack. This has returned 3 times now in the past three months. The first time I came down with this, I went to my primary care dr.

I tried to live with the annoying sinus congestion, eye irritation, cough and chest congestion because I too couldn't find anytime that helped. Within 4 months of allergy shots almost all my symptoms are gone, I can even get cat hair in my eye without having it red and swollen for days. The other things that can help are a very good mattress cover. I got mine from achoo-allergy.
After being on Copaxone for 3 months I developed difficulty breathing and severe chest congestion and it will not go away even after taking broad spectrum antibiotics.

I take an omeprazole every morning, seems to do well for me throughout the day, but in the A.M. for the last 3 months the congestion has gotten worse... If it is reflux shouldn't the omeprazole help me? Can anything be done to lessen or prevent this from occuring?

I've had chest infections on and off for months now. Once landing in the hospital because of an asthma attack. I had never had asthma before and I'm 37. Anyway after going on and off antibiotics for months, my pulmonologist finally had a CT of my sinuses ordered. Turns out I have chronic sinusitis and that is probably why I keep getting reinfected. I had allergy testing done around the same time and I thought I was allergic to everything as well. Turns out I'm not.
IN THE LAST 3-4 MONTHS I DEVELOPED CHEST CONGESTION THAT IS NONE PRODUCTIVE WITH THIS UPPER BACK PAIN. IT GETS BETTER THROUGHOUT THE DAY, BUT I CAN FEEL THE CONGESTION WHEN I BREATHE DEEP WHEN SITTING UP. THE BACK PAIN WAKES ME ALMOST EVERY NIGHT. I HAVE TO TAKE TYLENOL PM TO GET ANY SLEEP AT ALL. I HAVE NO FEVER, JUST TIRED ALL OF THE TIME. SOMETIMES MY CHEST HURTS. THE PAIN IN MY BACK FEELS MUSCULAR, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CHEST CONGESTION? IT IS ALL VERY STRANGE.
I don't feel well one day, the next day I wake up with heavy chest congestion with a productive cough. I get so sick I'm in bed for three days with fever, chills, no energy, no appetite. My question is, doesn't bronchitis occur after one gets a cold and not just happen out of the blue? Can this be a symptom of something else. I do have exercised induced asthma and take Advair twice a day. I've had testing for my heart, which came back perfectly normal.
May any of this be side effects of lavoquin or his chest congestion, which now im questioning if it is a congestion anymore. How can you decipher chest pain from chest congestion vs.
Any cough present for 3 months or less is considered to be an acute cough; one often due to an acute infection or an acute allergic reaction. A cough that lasts longer than 3 months is designated as a chronic cough, such as the cough caused by smoking, chronic bronchitis, chronic postnasal drip, asthma or chronic acid reflux. The first step to controlling or eliminating your cough should be, to determine the cause of the cough and then apply the appropriate therapy for that cause.
Did you have a chest x ray done or a chest ct scan. It sounds like you may have pleural effusions (fluid in your lungs). Sometimes lasix helps to relieve the fluid. Also, since you underwent radiation, this could be a side effewct of that. My husband was radiated in the chest area, and has since had much congestion to teh point of shortness of breath. His cancer is in remission, but teh radiation has effected his heart a bit, and teh mitral valve is leaking.
Felt really out of breath yesterday. The pulmn MD saw me right away. Listened to the wheeze and changed anti-biods and upped the prednisone back to 40 for the next 3 days (plus I got a booster injection), Doing a CBC and other blood tests. Did sputim cult on what little I could produce. Woke this AM and the wheeze was pretty much gone. (I also swapped the "cool mist humid" for a warm vaporizer). No CT or bronchoscopy on the horizon.... more later - late for work.

Has had a 10 day round of antibiotics and decongestant with no improvement. Had a 3 day breathing treatment, no improvement. 3 days ago her left eye appears to be bulging out. Went to vet again, pressures are normal. Was given another antibiotic, and eye drops. Was asked to come back on Monday to have someone else look at it.
Thank you for the advice, I am going to try to get a 2nd opinion. I am actually heading to the chiropractor tomorrow just to get an adjustment to see if that helps anything. I did some reading and saw that getting a few adjustments can help reduce the GERD symptoms. It is worth a try I say!
I would address pain control for after the procedure and make sure the radiologist will be in contact with your physician to coordinate your care post-procedure if you go ahead with it. I have read that it can take months for the full benefit of the procedure and there are varying opinions as to what kind of follow up to do to assess the effectiveness of the procedure.
For months now my nose drips every time I get around food of any kind. While eating my nose will drip clear water and I have to use a napkin constantly. The drainage goes down into my chest and I cough up mucus all the time. I have taken antibiotics to no avail, used Mucinex without any luck. What could possibly be causing this?
I ended up taking two antibiotics which ultimately cleared up the infection and green mucus, however not the constant cough, chest and nasal congestion. The mucus is clear and sometimes loose and other times I will cough it up and it seems to be chunky. I use my albuterol inhaler often due to not being able to breathe with the cough and congestion, I constantly feel that my chest is tight. I have also taken 2 more antibiotics hoping it would clear up but it has not.
