Avatar f tn A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> term cough is commonly caused from allergens (dust, pollen, animals, food, etc.). Get a notebook and start tracking - everything - sleep patterns, food, environment, habits, inside/outside temps, time, etc. You'll be able to determine what the most likely causes are. You state he coughs more in the am at home and doesn't at the store. Chances are there is something he is coming into contact with late night/early morning at the house.
Avatar m tn Okay so I feel I'm suffering from HIV anxiety even though I had a protected exposure with little to no risk after reading symptoms I started feeling a tickle in my throat and was coughing.....seems now I am <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> no reason throughout the day and ending up with a sore throat. I wake up in the morning and my throat is fine....but soon after I think about coughing.....I do and continue to do so through the day and then AGAIN I have a sore throat at the end of the day.
Avatar n tn I, too, had a cough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the duration of treatment while on Pegasys and Copegus. When I went off treatment due to non-response, the cough went away.

So make sure it's eliminated from your enviroment! Also invest perhaps in a good air cleaner, or at least a Lamp Berger ( air purification system,-also deodorizes-neutrilizes offensive odors and bacteria) $40.00 Canadian for a complete kit here in Canada. Meanwhile Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is Anti-fungal, Anti-bacterial, Anti-microbial, Anti-parasitic. Consuming this will give you great long term health benefits.
Avatar f tn I cough up yellow mucus all the time and i wake up in the morning and my sinus is always blocked up. I have had this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about seven months. It recently started getting worse with a sore throat but i'm not sure if it is the flu or the infection. Should I go to the doctor? I went to the doctor a while ago and got antibiotics but it didn't help so I am wondering if i should go back to the doctor. Is it normal for people with asthma to have so much mucus that is yellow all the time?
Avatar n tn i have been taking a medicine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> my high blood pressure and since that medicine I have been having cronic coughing. When I spoke with my health care provider they mentione dthat the medication for the blood pressure is causing the coughing and I cannot chnage the medication. Is it accurate that certain blood pressure medication causes cronic coughing.
Avatar f tn swollen glands and a feeling that my airway was in a spasm. The cough also started then. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing fits that last <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> min. tears rolling down my face gagging and coughing to the point of vomitting. The sore throat went away after 2 weeks but the cough is still here. I have wheezing that is not present all the time. I also have gurgling sounds in my left lung that also are not constant. I have seen my MD and did levaquin and steroids. The steroids seemed to help for a while.
Avatar n tn Hi Everyone I have also been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> quite some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>time</span> as a result of sinus problems and Post Nasal Drip. I cough all day and allllllll night. Some one told me to purchase Dr. Tichenor's Antiseptic Mouthwash and gargle with it. You have to add 5 parts water/...I added 4 parts water to make it a little stronger. I gargle with it in the morning, afternoon and before bed at night. After coughing for close to 2 months now, I have not coughed for 3 days now.
Avatar f tn I went to labor and delivery friday night to be monitored and yesterday to see my obg my baby is doing great and shes very active so im not worried but im so frustrated i cant even go out if i stand walk or sit down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> time the pain is unbearable has anyone ever experience this while pregnant.
785584 tn?1273252832 If you believe yourself when hearing those words then, yes, it's probably <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>time</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a mental break <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a few days. If you don't then come on back here and spill your guts. This Chiari thing takes the very soul out of the best of us at times.
Avatar n tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a few years now (never really noticed it until this year) i've had some sort of mucus or something in the back of my throat; whenever I run or such, I usually have to 'force it back down' with a swallowing-type action. Is this serious, is this something that can be fixed?
Avatar n tn When you say you have chest pains when sitting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>time</span>, is this because you do not have a good sitting posture and sit slouched? Do you have any other symptoms with the chest pains, like wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath? Without any other symptoms, it is likely that it is due to your posture. But to be on the safe side, I suggest you see your doctor to listen to your chest and examine to find out whether this is a muscular, lung or heart problem, indigestion or heartburn.
Avatar n tn anyway...ive had this pretty bad cold <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about a week...well, i seem to be 'somewhat' better except <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a stuffed and very runny nose (i know...tmi) and a pretty bad cough...i have an appt. on monday, but its for a follow up on my pap smear... im 12 weeks pregnant and the coughing(mostly in the evenings and the morning) is so bad sometimes that it makes me throw up (ive only actually thrown up twice, but ive gagged and 'almost'thrown up a few times) ...
Avatar f tn It is tough when loved ones get sick but just remember to take it one day at a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>time</span> or even just one hour at a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>time</span> and maybe the overwhelm feelings won't feel so overwhelming. Take care and stay strong.
Avatar n tn My wife has had a very severe cough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> more than a month. It primarily occurs at night - every night, sometimes several times a night and rarely in the morning. It is so severe that it leads to vomiting and panic level shortness of breath. It is prohibiting any restful sleep and keeps her awake for hours afterword causing fatigue throught the day. There is some phlegm with the cough. She is 42, a smoker, is allergic to cats and dogs although we have had a 4 lb yorkie for 4.

Avatar n tn He will be perfectly OK, then his head will suddenly fill with fluid, it runs down his throat, and the tickling of his throat by the fluid is what causes the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing, which goes then nonstop <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 2-3 hours. Recently a nurse sent us to the ER, and we found that a nebulizer treatment, including a steroid and albuterol, didn't help much, but the A/C in the car did. His doctor has diagnosed RAD, his spirometry showed normal function, and we are waiting to see an allergist.
Avatar f tn I'm normally a healthy 22 year old woman with no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> or short term illnesses or diseases. I maybe a little over weight, but nothing too significant. But for the last 3-4 days I have had this constant cough where I can't stop and eventually end up vomiting. Earlier this week I had the flu and thought I was developing strep throat. Went to the doctors and did a test and it was negative and they told me it was a 'viral strep.' The doctor also listened to my lungs and said they sounded great.
Avatar n tn The cough isn't very productve but sometimes I cough up white, thick sputum. Also when I took my daughter in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a flu shot and got in a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing fit there her dr. said I sounded like I had pertusis. Is it normal for the cough to last that long with bronchitis? I had bronchitis a lot in the past but it always go better after the predisone and antibiotic. I know I should go back to my dr.
Avatar n tn I think only a pulmonolgist that put you through breathing tests would be able to better answer your question about your sudden symptoms. Asbestos if inhaled over a long period of time can cause "pulmonary fibrosis" a restrictive lung disease but generally the scarring from asbestos takes 10-40 years to start showing symptoms. You may have inhaled dust and asbestos fibers which caused acute inflammation of your bronchial tubes or lungs.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am 32 years old male and have had a cough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a 2-3 years now. I don't know what started it, what changed to start it., or why it happens. I am tired of coughing all the time and am sure the people around me are tired of hearing it. I went to a doctor who tested me or allergies and said I am allergic to nothing. She did a chest xray which came back clear as well. I have constant sinus drainage and my cough usually gets me gasping for breath when I laugh...odd I know.
