Hi, I have had a cough thatwon't<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>. It has been 6 weeks now. First, I was prescribed amoxicillin, as the doc thought I had a sinus infection. that helped the congestion a bit, but the cough didn't goaway. Then I was given a zpack which lessened the cough, but I still have the cough. The cough is very light to nonexistent during the day, it really picks up at night. It has been this way the entire time. The cough is quite productive and lots of phlegm is present in my throat.
About 5 minutes after the tachycardia ended, I have began experiencing palpitations that have intensified over since the attack.
Two days afterthat tachycardic episode, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> pain developed along with the palpitations. This feeling of pressure in the center of my chest is always accompanied by the palpitations and will sometimes last only 3-4min and other times for several hours (especially in the evenings).
I also have a little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>congestionthat seems to make me cough in the evening hours. My teeth actually hurt worse than anything right now! I don't even want to eat and I can't have hot drinks because I also have rosacea. I am a mother of two toddlers and attend online classes for my school. I am so busy all the time and can't concentrate as well as I used to. I just took some Ibruprofen, about 800 mgs..does anyone know of any other solutions at this point?
I am currently on my 6th day of antibiotics and for the past few days have been experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> tightness and asthma like symptoms (I was asthmatic as a child and experience symptoms rarely now). I do not have any yellow/green phlegm and each day my coughs seem more productive but havent really produced any clearing of the lungs.
(Couldn't agree more about hospitals not necessarily being the place for it, but I won't<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> into the reasons I say that here).
I note from the salicylate sensitivity forum that many people have found it difficult to treat the sensitivity, although there are papers such as "Individual Monitoring of Aspirin Desensitization" that provide evidence for its efficacy (as typical with this kind of research, very small numbers involved).
did yuu ever get any worthwhile reponses to your question about theconstant wheezing? My problem is pretty much identidcal and started after I took the flu shot last year. I now make the strangest wheezing noises mostly at night even thoufh I do some wheezing in the day time. My wheezing is not coming from my lungs, it is more nasal. I also get very dry mouth at night. I too am wondering what kind of test to ask for because my pulumonary doctor says just keep using the inhalers.
I am a nearly 43-year-old male, 6'2", 250 lbs. When I was 29, back on 11/29/1993 @ about 5 pm, I had an episode that RUINED my life. I had just come home from work and sat down to relax in front of the TV.
that night he dies from a heart attack. I have a heaviness in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> most all the time, then I get a dull shooting pain in the left side of my chest. Sometimes it feels swollen. I was told it's muscular too. Now I am getting sweaty and then all of a sudden get so cold I have to cover up or put a sweater on.
I think I just believe that it will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>. Everytime I feel better and have had no signs of asthma, I feel as though I'm cured and I don't have to treat it. The sad truth is, once I stop, it always returns. Mine is mild and I have been using Advair 250/50. It seems to work. I only use it once a day because I think it keeps me up before bed. Anyways, I suppose I'll give it a shot again.
I'm still hoping that I don't have it though. Or, I'm hoping that it will clear up and goaway.
Been feeling like something was coming on for days now, but woke up early this morning with a definitely upper respiratory infection-type thing, including a deep chest cough and a lot of congestion in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>. I just started my 12th week so I'm not comfortable taking antibiotics or most of the normal over-the-counter meds I use to treat these normally. Any magic solutions from those of you who have been through this before?
about 4 weeks ago i began to have sore throat, cough and mild headache (no fever till date). the headache is gone like about a week later but the sore throat and cough only start to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span> last week which is about 3 weeks later. however i still have nasal congestion with a fair bit of mucus. i have been taking cough syrup, lozenges, inflammation and phlegm medicine. only until last week i was prescribed with antibiotic (moxiclav).
