Common Questions and Answers about Chest congestion won't go away

chest

I started out with a cold and cough. Now I have a cough that won't go away. It feels like my throat is congested. What is this?
Hi, I have had a cough that won't go away. 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 go away. 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.
It wouldn't go away, so I went to the walk-in clinic and they said it was a virus. Then it still wouldn't go away, I then went to the walk-in again....they said I had Bronchitis and gave me Doxycycline and Prednisone. It still did not work, I went to my regular doc and had a chest x-ray and they told me I had Pneumonia and he gave me Levaquin. In the meantime I took some Asthma tests (per my doctor's suggestion) and found out I have Asthma. I was given Pulmicort and MaxAir.
The steamer provides relief for about 10 minutes or so. Breathing is SO hard! Will this go away? Is this just a cold? Could it be bronchitis or pnemonia (which I've had before and this feels similar)? When should I call the dr back? Am I just being a big baby? Will this continue throughout my entire pregnancy?
fever won't go away posted by dina on January 15, 1999 at 20:07:20: My daughter is five years old. She has had a fever of 104 going on six days now. Her Dr. saw her 3 days ago and said she shows no sign of bacterial infection. With the fever persisting, he ordered a blood test today, and again - no bacterial infection. My question is, how long can I let a high fever like this go on?
I also notice that ever since my rash in 2002, I tend to crop up with alot of blemishes on my skin. The worrying thing is that they do not go away, but instead linger indefinitely and make my face seem alittle older. I am not so vain as to care about the aesthetic side, but they do feel abit sensitive to any scratching.
I also have a cough that seems to produce mucus, although I can't spit the mucus out because it just goes to the back of my throat, it doesn't go into my mouth. It also feels and sounds like there is congestion in my chest at times, but usually if I cough a couple times I can make that feeling go away. I also get stabbing chest pain in the left side of my chest that seems completely random. But something happened last night that was really worrying.
About 5 minutes after the tachycardia ended, I have began experiencing palpitations that have intensified over since the attack. Two days after that tachycardic episode, chest 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).
My heart rate does go up a bit and I do have chest pain and a tingle in my left arm like others have said. They say that WPW is something people are born with. Personally I think its "our" diets we grow up eatting fast food along with other horrible things we feed our bodies. I'll encourage all of "us" myself included to eat better and stay away from fast food.
I also have a little chest congestion that 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 wouldn't have thought the the low thyroid would cause chest pains. This is likely be to be congestion, asthma, muscle problems. What did your doctor reckon it was?
I am currently on my 6th day of antibiotics and for the past few days have been experiencing chest 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.
She is allergic that is why i had to give him away. He wouldnt stay out of her room he always would sneak in when she would go in her room. He is a lot faster than my 74 yr old grandma. But yeah thanks for questioning me........
(Couldn't agree more about hospitals not necessarily being the place for it, but I won't go 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.
However reading what you said.. with draining of the fluid and medication.. maybe it will go away? They drained it the first time and he still is uncomfortable... but I heard with prolonged draining... scarring tissue forms. As for Rutin.. I heard it works temporarily until the body isn't transferring the fat to the dog and then works against his body and he gets malnutritioned. This seemed to happen just last week....
That night he dies from a heart attack. I have a heaviness in my chest 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.
Did your pain ever go away? Did you determine what it was. I have the same issue.
August last year i hurt my neck at work but thought it would just go away, Until i heard this scraping sound coming from either my chest or throat. The noise is louder when I open my mouth, people say it is just my breath but I know it's not...I went to the doctors and the xray didn't show much but the doctor told me I had a straightening of the spine caused by injury..
I think I just believe that it will go away. 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 go away.
results normal. I also get the pains in my left and right chest and lower abdomen, but it always goes away. Eat light until it passes.

Any ideas suggestions remedies here.it just won't go away...he does not have any chest congestion or anything liek that. Just dragged out, weak, tiired, stuffy with moments of major nose blowing....Just wondering and I don't have the energy to look stuff up per say....I am going to have a baby soon and have pregnant brain..
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 chest. 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?
Hopefully you went to see a doctor and you're feeling better. Feeling sick for more than 3 days with symptoms not getting better is a good time to see a doctor. Feel better.
Day 4- chills and aches went away, no night sweat, no fever, but dry cough, sore throat, sneezing and chest congestion; Day 5- chills came back, had another night sweat (my neck, chest, and upper back were drenched), minor sore throat, dry cough and congestion. Day 6-Day 13- lingering dry cough. On Day 10- I went to the doctor and he prescribed me antibiotics for the cough. It has been a week since Day 13 and all symptoms have subsided with the exception of some congestion in my throat.
Every time you get a cold, notice how it usually starts in the throat with a tickle, a scratch, or a slight cough. It then progresses into chest congestion or travels up into the ears and the sinuses. You’ll have a low grade fever, mild chills, and a runny nose. Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right?
My doctor then proceeded to give me the Pelvic Congestion Diagnosis and sent me away telling me to keep trying. I was so very unsatisfied, so I did my own research. I found Nutcracker Syndrome and was convinced that I had it. You see, since the renal vein is being compressed, not enough blood flows through it to your heart, so the body compensates by sending the blood downward through the pelvic creating the veriscosities and causing chronic to mild pain.
