Chest congestion pneumonia

Common Questions and Answers about Chest congestion pneumonia

chest

What it feels like is the chronic post nasal drip I have has caused congestion in my upper chest. However, the weird part is, I really have no cough, and the occasional cough has never brought anything up. In the past, if my chest begins to feel this way, it is followed by the painful cough and coughing stuff up. I would not call what I have sometimes as pain, it feels more like irritation. When I am active, as well as when I drink a lot of water, it seems to be much better.
My alergy presents as very loose and fluid chest congestion - if unchecked it get to the point of sounding like pneumonia. I am alergic to Mt Red Cedar and some other alergens - mostly fall and spring, but recently realized dairy products and some fruits cause the same effect. Perscriptions such as clarnex and singular used to keep it at bay and I didn't need to be on it constantly, but recently it is getting worse and I always seem to have a productive cough.
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 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 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.
To know for sure if this is due to pneumonia you will need to have chest x-ray done. This is the best test for finding pneumonia. Your clear congestion could also be due to postnasal drip. This is drainage from the nose and sinuses dripping down the back of the throat. This can irritate the throat and the lungs. It can also cause chest congestion.
Has anyone experienced continous coughing and chest congestion? I have been on synthroid for about 10 weeks now and for the last 4 I have had a cough that is in my chest. Any ideas if this is related to the synthroid or something else? Thank you!
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. My dr. denies any connection with Copaxone. But it is the only thing that has changed in my life - taking Copaxone injections. Has anyone heard of a link.

asthma, chest congestion, epistaxis, hyperventilation, laryngismus, laryngitis, pneumonia, voice alteration; http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic/venlafax_ad.htm Its hard to guess, but one thing I would suggest is calling your pharmacy and asking for one of their trained professionals to look at your medicine records and make sure there isnt the possibliity that the medicines your now taking couldnt singularly or in combination, cause your immune system to be supressed.
It started off as a minor sore throat, nothing that really bothered me and a bit of a stuffy nose. Within two days both of those were replaced with chest congestion, tightness, and a wet cough producing green phlegm. Now its been about 5 days of wheezing and this cough i can feel the congestion deep down in my lungs. When i breathe i can feel the phlegm and mucus and i wheeze when i exhale. It is usually worse at night before i go to sleep. Im not quite sure If i should go see my doctor.
I still have a low grade fever ranging from 99-100.2 degrees pretty consistently. My chest congestion is worse and lungs feel tight. Is this normal for H1N1?
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.
The intermittent fevers with horrible sweats, I would drench my night clothes and bedding to the point of having to change them. My chest did hurt, especially in the area where the pneumonia was. It was a dull, intermittent ache that got worse with coughing. My appetite plunged and yes, I had nausea as well and at times vomiting, I just wanted to sleep too, didn't want to do a damned thing.
Jenny - never mess with breathing always go straight to your dr. Things can turn on a dime, I've had pneumonia and allergies and waiting is never a good idea. You need to take care of yourself. Pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong, at 28 breathing should never hurt. Please see your Dr. Hope to hear back that you have an appt.
This past week, I have been experiencing chest congestion and coughing up greenish phlegm but have no cold symptoms. Am asthmatic but has been under control for many years. Even though still taking Singulair and Advair daily, have been having shortness of breath and am very tired. Am also using Proventil which I rarely use and it's barely making a difference. Even something as simple as turning from side to side in bed is leaving me breathless.
Then the next day, it got worse (and yes, I took medicine for flu/cold) with coughing up (I'm presuming) some bloody mucus several times (it's more like a rust color), dry coughing mostly, severe chest congestion (Robatusson {sp?} doesn't work), and severe congestion in my nose. Slight fever (no more chills though) and I'm sure my temperature is up (I can just feel it). What are the symptoms of pneumonia? Or am I describing more of a cold?
Pneumonia and a heart attack have a number of symptoms in common: chest pain, shortness of breath, weakness, light-headedness, palpitation and cough. Some heart attacks are "silent"; i.e., without symptoms and could be precipitated by the stress of pneumonia. It is not very common to have both pneumonia and a heart attack together. A heart attack can result in lung congestion that could be mistaken for pneumonia.
Unless you are elderly and/or have some type of underlying lung disease, such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and if you are completely symptom free with no fever cough or feeling of chest congestion and if the x-ray to be taken in about a week is completely clear, you could probably safely proceed with the surgery. If any of the preceding criteria are not met, however, you would do well to wait another month, to be completely safe, or as much as one can be.
I have been having this cough/wheeze and congestion for a week now. I have Eosinophilic Esophagitis and GERD. I just had an Endoscopy yesterday, the doc said it looked good, but I do have a small Hiatal Hernia and they took biopsies but those will take weeks to come in. The doc just increased my Omeprazole to taking two 40mg twice a day. They tell me the cough/wheezing can last for months, as it will take time for my increased meds to help the situation.
I have had high fevers, chills, and all but NO cough and NO phlegm whatsoever. The Pneumonia was diagnosed on a chest xray. Does it mean anything if I simply do not cough and have no desire to? Doesn't that infection have to come out somehow? Or can it just be that the pneumonia is only causing inflammation with no phlegm? I have been sick for 2 + weeks, and started antibiotics about a week after the onset of the chest pain, when I spiked 103 fever and chills, rapid heart rate.
I was diagnosed with pneumonia about a month ago. It took about two weeks to recover, but now I am ill again. The illness started with a painful sore throat. I don't have a fever, but I have a horrible earache, very sore throat and horrible nasal congestion. I have been vomiting mucous and all the pain seems to be centralized to the right side of my body (i.e., my right ear hurts, the right side of my throat hurts).
fatigue is so strong and lack of energy...I also do feel a very slight sensation of congestion in my chest..I have not seen any rashes on my skin or any noticable nodes......what is this?
the reason i thought it could be pneumonia is because of the way is chest moves when he breathes and because RSV can cause pneumonia to be set up in your system since your system is low especially in toddlers!
About 6 months into my pregnancy, I developed pneumonia according to my family doctor. Prior to this, I had been noticing that I could feel some congestion in my left lung at different times. Since I was pregnant and had previously lost a child to a miscarriage, I chose not to contact the doctor until/unless I was sick. So, when I got sick with pneumonia, I was prescribed Ceftin as it is safe during pregnancy.
