Chronic coughing when talking

Common Questions and Answers about Chronic coughing when talking

coughing

I am constantly coughing. People know when I am around just by hearing my cough. I do it so often, I have become used to it and carry on as if it is normal but I know that it isn't. I am fine for a while and suddenly I have to cough. Sometimes the cough turns into a fit and makes me feel like throwing up. Sometimes my eyes water, throat itches and it simply wears me out. I am convinced that I am suffering from allergies but my doctor wants to be sure that my lungs are ok.
Esecially with the other symptoms that I have mentioned before? I also have to say that when I am talking too much is when the feeling of not breathing very well is the most noticable. Sorry to ask more about my breathing. No health insurance right now is keeping me from seeing a pulminologist and the ER will not run many tests except chest x-rays that have been normal they say.
Doctors say im ashmatic which is fine but one thing they cannot explain is why I've coughing out phlegm non stop for the past two month. Its not bloody, but thick and green sometimes white and foam like. My chest also feels tight everytime i cough. I use the sprays and all but this problem is permanently there.

It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
I need help!!! I've had horrendous 'coughing spells' for over ten years. I've gone to several ENTs, Pulmonary Drs, GPs, Interal Med Drs, etc, who rarely spend the time to even listen to me and just prescribe the same old meds which don't work. I've been checked for allergies, asthma, lung problems, GERD, you name it...and I don't have any of them. I keep saying that it's some kind of post nasal drip that gets so severe that it sets off my gag reflex and the cough is productive.
She has coughing fits every day, and are bad when she cries, sometimes to the point of throwing up. She has had coughing fits while eating and has choked a few times. I can't take it anymore. Her doctor says it is viral, and refuses to treat it. She has also had a small lump in her neck this whole time as well, and am told this is normal.
I also have back, neck and rib pain and a choking cough when the pain starts. This coughing what is really worrying me as I am a smoker (very light, but nevertheless, still a smoker). The cough is not present unless the pain under the ribs is there. I seem to be going from one specialist to the other and it is taking such a long time. Has anyone else had symptoms like these, what was the diagnosis and anything that could help would be much appreciated. Many thanks.
On the other hand I have experienced that the more you clear your throat the more mucus is being produced and your throat will be very dry and sore when you keep clearing. I know, after a while you don't even notice anymore when you're clearing. I know try to swallow or drink something everytime I feel like mucus is stuck. What's the color of the mucus? Do you have a congested nose too?
It feels like bronchitis, or like when you smoke too much on a cigar. Coughing doesn't give any relief, just makes it worse. I've been checked out by a dozen doctors and they can't find a thing wrong except that I clearly have some kind of inflamation. I don't smoke anything. (but I had done many years ago).
One thing I meant to mention is that it is painful the most when I swallow or yawn. I don't have much coughing going on. But do feel like I have a dry throat in the AM when I wake up.
My two year old started coughing in August. It is now November and he hasn't stoped. We've seen the general practitioner (GP) (there are no pediatricians available freely in London) 4 times (maybe more), and every time I hear the same thing - viral infection, it will go away. But it doesn't. It seems to go in cycles: starts of dry, and infrequent, and continues to become wet and he coughs every hour or so. Then it slows down again, and goes back to being dry.
I am not coughing anything up. I am out of breath all the time, even when I am talking, or just walking down the hallway at work.I am on several medications that are barely keeping my airway open. I am on 20 mg. oral prednisone, advair (2x day), spiriva (1x day), zopenex in my nebulizer (1-2x day), albuterol rescue inhaler (use it at work if needed), protonix, and nasonex. I am trying to wean off the prednisone, but my breathing starts to get worse when I do.
However, some nights I will have a little cough when I lie down and then sleep all the way through the night Also sometimes when my throat is really itchy and I have had a bad day of coughing, I find I cannot talk much without coughing inbetween sentences and talking to people becomes difficult to do. Finally, other symptoms that occur at the time of a coughing fit which can occur several times a day..to all day.
Is it possible you do have allergies but your immune system is messing up the test? Just a thought. Oh another note. Talking baout coughing and hacky and dry coughs. When I was on chemo for the lupus about 4-5 months ago I got pneumonia and the flu at the same time. They took me off of the chemo and I had to go through 5 rounds of anti-biotics to get my lungs clear. They are clear now but I cough constantly, have for months.
I am 46, healthy, surf and swim a lot, and have only experienced this the last few years in cold dry weather or when I have a touch of the flu- usually when talking on the phone or when sleeping,but never when eating. My mum has had some scary episodes over the past 20 years and prompted me to google this forum.There must be an easier solution than steroids to alleviate the problem. .
Cough meds, bronchial dilators, Asthma meds., steroids when necessary, etc. Respiratory Diseases cause coughing....Asthma & Bronchitis are treated with the same meds as Trachea Collapse. This is more of a dry cough with wheezing at times or both....With this, sometimes the Heart shows enlargement,but it is not a Heart Problem! It's from lack of oxygen through the respiratory system.....Steroids are useful as needed for allergy season that can be a trigger.....
It's been 2 years and nothing helps, have tried allergy meds and prescription Robitussin. Talking also makes my itching and coughing worse. Have you had any answers to this problem? If you have, please post another message. Thanks and good luck!
Yes, thanks, I have appt with ent next week.I will not rest until this is resolved. Where is the real "house" when you need one? I am on a zytek-d. not helping.arghhh.
The problem is he still has the same headaches that become worse when trying to concentrate or when he is in a loud or bright environment. The head pain never goes away. We have him back to school an hour a day and next week he starts 3 hours a day. I hope he can endure it since he missed almost 3 months of school. He is currently on amitriptylene and topirimate. He takes maxalt as needed to get the head pain down when it spikes. I don't know if these medications are helping him.
gulping and swallowing air so then I'm full of air which results in belching and then explosive gas passing when coughing. Violent coughing resulting unexpected vomiting ('cause you don't feel sick to your stomach). Xrays showed lungs clear but trachea almost closed. Took almost 3 weeks before the classic 'whooping' started. Still have laryngitis. Was supposed to have back surgery but keeps getting postponed. Infected my husband and mother-in-law.
I start to hear a ringing, from what I'm seeing it looks like I'm being enveloped by blackness (when in actuality, I was told by those who have seen me, my eyes are shutting because I complain I can't see), and I eventually fall over or something and slowly regain awareness..... and when I do, I'm sweating as if I just ran my ass off. When it happens my entire body goes numb, and I mean EVERYTHING.
I'm a 29 y.o female who has had hives 9 months. When I first saw my doctor he gave me a course of steroids, that didn't help at all. I have tried all sorts of antihistamines... Zyrtec, Claritin and now i'm trying Chlor-Trimeton. All of them not helping much anymore. I have read article after article about hives and the more I read the more down I feel about it.. not being able to find a cause. I have had an allergy test and I have high allergy to dust mites.
after my throat would bubble and this really tenaciously sticky substance would start to break down (from back of throat) so basically when i was coughing previously - it was unproductive, my throat was so sore (still is). i had to do this several times after i began at 10:30 and it is 1:30 and i have gargled about 3-4 times (multiple times each session). i am not coughing, but still feel something going on in my throat. but it is much better. so this is the other thing i figured out.
Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right? When you see your doctor, throat redness and irritation and swollen glands are noted, confirming even further that you’re in the middle of a standard upper respiratory infection, or the common cold. Typically, it’ll last anywhere from 3-5 days. A small minority will progress into one of the classic complications of a common cold, such as a bronchitis or sinusitis.
I came down with whatever they had and it turned into a horrible cough. I was up one night until 5am coughing...it wouldn't stop. I ended up going to the emergency room, thinking I was developing pneumonia. They x-rayed me and said no. The physician enraged me, saying I was "forcing the cough" (i.e, faking it) and he sent me home with sleeping pills. I slept for 2 days and the cough went away. Well, a year later, that same, mysterious cough returned.
I don't know a lot about this, but have you ever heard of "singer's throat" with all the issues I have had over the year, I ran across it when I googled something. Singer's strain their voice and have problems then singing again and have to really rest their vocal cords before they can sing. I'm not sure what it's called, but perhaps you could try putting that in google or on "search" on here and see if something comes up.
