Let it out, i have just had a good old rant about how ive been feeling too. so Go for it!! Coughing, sneezing,bending, laughing, singing all make my head hurt more too and can set off a big headacke from the back occipital region going along the sides and into my eyes. Then also the lough whooshing in my ears and dizzyness that goes along with it. I am having fun moaning today, its after midnight and im up by myself ranting and moaning and letting it all out is fun!!!!!!
Working in a office is horrific when I have this cough and I hate it when everyone looks at me. I don't even want my husband or kids looking at me when I'm having a coughing fit. Very embarassing. With all this modern medicine there's got to be something they can do.
Since about midnight I have had a tickle/irritation in my laranx (sp) that has triggered coughing spasams that have lasted for about 30 secs to a minute about every five minutes. The coughs are making my head really hurt at the temples and the back of my neck. They even made me wet my pants. :( The tickle in my throat seems to be only on the left side. I am at a loss as cause. But I thought I would express my missery. Nothing I have done seems to make any difference.
Well, Tuesday she is playing and everything seems ok, still not a big appetite except at lunchtime. I'm thinking she is getting better but that night she starts coughing while sleeping and throws up..not much since she didn't eat much supper. Wednesday she is actually running, playing, eating like normal and then Thursday morning at 3am she coughs and throws up.
I don't think I'll be awake at midnight, but I'll be ready to start off 2009 with high hopes as soon as I get up tomorrow!
My home nurse told me this morning after I sent in my 1 hour monitoring that my coughing is causing contractions so they wanted me to go see my regular doc. I just got back from the appointment. What I thought was just a head cold turns out to be a sinus infection and a serious case of bronchitis. Good thing I went in or it could have turned into pneumonia. I had it two years ago so it puts me at risk for having it again. Apparently that type of illness has some lasting effects on your body.
a week ago he developed a cough that had him coughing about three times in a row every 4 or 5 hours. About 3 days ago he started coughing at night. He would wake up about midnight cough 3 or 4 times hard and repeat about every three hours. Last night he coughed about every 1 to 2 hours and coughed so hard he almost threw up several times. The coughing goes on for about a minute or two straight so hard he can hardly catch his breath.

Last night was from hell..have had this chest infection/pneumonia for a month. At about midnight started having serious breathing problems and startling chest pains..thought i was having a hearty. I spend a fair of time alone, specially on the weekends as the kids are doing their own thing (as teenagers do) and my hubby works away for a month or so at a time...thats a good thing as he's not dealing with this treatment..at all. So I was alone and couldnt even get downstairs to the phone.

One of the side effects of ACE inhibitors is coughing. I take 20 mg /per day . 10mg at noon, 10 at midnight. Occasionally I cough while laying down right after,but no more then one or two cough … I use double pillow …. Ask the DR if he could take them two or more times a day. I saw a person on higher dose ,she was coughing for 10-15 minutes after taking it. Her DR said it is OK, so she just got used to it….
...from 0700 CDT, 9 July, 2009 until near midnight on 14 July. I'm making an unplanned visit back east; had an overwhelming feeling I need to see my family and Anita agreed. Think good of me and mine, as the feeling I had that if I didn't go back now, someone of great importance wouldn't be there if I waited until the trip in October to see another niece wedded. Short notice tickets weren't as bad as I thought they might be.

So looks like I am in good hands with this Ob-gyne at least! In Hong Kong now and it is very wet. Oops, midnight here and my bed time. Aside from the tummy pain and exquisitely sore breasts I am feeling pretty good! Til the next update.
00 PM Our time at Dennys was cut short because someone came into the restaurant with heavy amounts of perfume on and it set D into a coughing fit. She had forgotten her inhaler and needed to go home. I cried because I wasn't ready for her to go, I felt like we were having a good conversation and I wasn't ready for it to end. I was embarrassed and felt guilty about crying like that.
But I'm still up at almost midnight because I'm gonna stay home from work tomorrow to give this 1 more day to get over it some.. because A) I don't want to get everyone at work sick, and B)... I'm EXHAUSTED and have a migraine from the coughing. I'm just gonna tell them it's pregnancy related because I don't have enough normal sick leave.
Not had bub yet, they are trying to stop her coming for at least another week up til end of next week. Last Monday very busy day. Was having trouble walking because was having pretty frequent contractions. Was a bit concerned, but generally contractions in the past stop once I stop walking etc.. Baby was only just over 35 weeks. Anyway, went home and went to bed straight after work. Contractions didn't stop....
yeah me too, i finally went down at 4 & woke up at 8.
tI seems funny to me that the diabetes just appeared out of no where at the same time. They tested his cortisol level with a midnight saliva test and it came back high. They then did the next test up and it was normal. Does anyone have any ideas?
Later i developed into cough - even cough syrups didnt help. After about 4 -5 months; i felt difficulty in breathing at midnight... I was coughing for quite some time (mucus generated) and then i fell asleep. After a few days; i experienced difficulty in breathing and some noise while i inhale and exhale. I consulted a doctore who diagnosed me for cold and prescribed some tables which never helped.
My temperature went up yesterday, 99F, 100F, 101F, until at midnight 102.8F. I drank a lot of hot water to produce sweats that the temperature went down to 100.5F. My day time temperature now is 101.5F. Starting from yesterday, my muscle was painful. This symptom also passed to my wife and other people. Counting my wife’s exposure time, she has the symptom (identical to mine) was on her 51st day after her exposure with me. I had two HIV tests so far.
Sudden weather fluctuations such as pressure or humidity changes is another common trigger. If you’re susceptible to sleep-breathing problems at all (most modern humans are to some degree), any degree of inflammation in the throat will cause further swelling, starting up a vicious cycle that brings up more stomach juices into the throat, which causes more obstructed breathing and stomach juice reflux.
but as the day progressed into the evening, the coughing started getting more frequent. By midnight, I was coughing and not being able to catch my breath. Long story short, went to the hospital for the next 4 days. The Pulmonary Doctor hasn't said exactly what it is yet because of inflammation/mucous buildup etc. that we are trying to clear out with various inhalers and meds. I see him again in 3 weeks.
Do NOT eat anything at all the day before you go in for your c section or the morning/day you go! You will be very sick/throw up worse then your going to anyways. Try very hard NOT to catch any type of cold/flu I ended up getting brochinitis (horrible nonstop cough) I didn't heal right after the c section from all the coughing.
Awww poor baby. I bet you were thrilled. At least he tried to warn you, though. Hope he feels better.
if you find youre not lowering youre dose of lorazepam well, then tell your doctor or go to a doctor and ask to be put on a equivalent dose of diazepam depending where youre at at your dosage. its a longer lasting benzo and is easier to come off of and taper off.
For the past couple of weeks I had been dealing with an upper respiratory infection. After the first couple of days I was still coughing things up from my chest but I was also feeling good enough to workout. This past Sunday I still had the running nose and "cough and spit" from time to time but otherwise feeling great. Around midnight suddenly out of nowhere was in so much pain when I would take somewhat of a deep breath.
then i got a high fever, body aches so bad, a killer headache and my legs were so weak and in pain i couldnt hardly even get up to go to the bathroom (which was often cuz i was SO THIRSTY i kept drinking tons of water). then the coughing and sneezing came on around 3 a.m. At that point i just about wanted to shoot myself, LOL. Im serious, i never felt so sick in all my life- it must be a true Flu , this is no ordinary cold!!
In the middle of the afternoon while writing on the computer, I will feel a strong sense of eeding to sleep and sometimes barley make it to the bed at the end of the hall to lay down. I fall right to sleep which I can never do at night. I go to bed by midnight or so and wake at 7 am. Never sleep through the night as I always have to wake to urinate or I am coughing. I use three pillows behind my head at night which makes it easier for me to breathe.
