Coughing phlegm laryngitis

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing phlegm laryngitis


About two weeks ago, I developed chronic postnasal drip that left me clearing my throat constantly and hoarse by the end of the day. I also had a runny nose with clear discharge. At night, I would wake up coughing. Also at night, one of the my nasal passages would become completely blocked and could not be cleared by blowing my nose. Once or twice I coughed up thick yellow phlegm. Today I woke up almost unable to speak.
could all these things be linked, could i have a hyper allergic reaction to something which triggers of the coughing, hte violent coughing inturn has weakend the pshinter muscle in my chest and produced the hernia? could the acid reflux or the gas given off by the extra acid be now triggering the violent coughing fits? and inturn then damaging my vocal cords?.
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. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
I've had a cold for about a week. Sore throat is gone.. but coughing, phlegm, and laryngitis has set in. I took off a vacation day for today (asked for it a while back) so I could finish painting our bedroom and living room. But my husband insists that I not paint while I'm sick. I'm bored out of my mind watching tv, etc.! Would painting in a well ventilated (windows open) room hurt me? What about gardening?
By the evening I had developed laryngitis and basically lost my voice, or most of it anyway and coughing up wads of phlegm, really bad int he morning. It was like this for about a week. My lymph nodes weren't swollen, or at least not that I could feel. I did notice that the sore throat started to rotate. First it would be on the right side then the left side, Sometimes it would be upper left, then lower left and vice versa. Like I said weird.
ugh! Im sorry to here you are feeling so sick. I'm not a medical doctor but here is my opinion on some of things things you mentioned you could possibly have: pneumonia: its possible, but pneumonia is relatively uncommon influenza (flu) - unlikely. You would have rapid onset of symptoms w/ high grade fever common cold - definitely possible bronchitis - not sure emphysema - not sure asthma - this would be secondary to a primary illness.
* Blood clot in the lung * Bronchiectasis * Bronchitis * Cancer * Cystic fibrosis * Goodpasture's syndrome * Inflammation of the blood vessels in the lung (vasculitis) * Inhaling blood into the lungs (pulmonary aspiration) * Irritation of the throat from violent coughing * Nosebleed that drips blood down into the lungs * Laryngitis * Pneumonia * Pulmonary edema * Systemic lupus erythematosus * Tuberculosis Diagnostic tests that can m
Could I be immune to TB, if the blood I got had antibodies in it? I frequently have bad colds where I'm coughing up lots of phlegm of diffrent colors, yellow, orange , green, or blood tinged. I used to get sinusitis and or laryngitis all the time untill I started using a Netti pot. My kids have the same colds as me for a week or two, but I cough for a month or more, often just when I'm feeling better another cold starts everything off again.
I felt like I was about to suffocate. Eventually, I was able to breathe a bit more and more, and to cough away the phlegm in my airway. I went to an ENT dr who said this was a GERD issue, Acid Reflux. I've been taking medication for that and it may have helped, but I did get another attack today. I've also had a diagnonsis, today, of Bronchitis. I've had the phlegm for around a week now and another ENT dr. told me that I have Bronchitis and that prescribed antibiotics for me.
A common cause of phlegm in the throat is postnasal drip. This is drainage from the nose and sinuses dripping down the back of the throat. There could be several reasons for this drainage. One reason is an allergy. A second reason is a non-allergic, non-infectious inflammation in the sinuses that can linger after a cold. A third reason is chronic sinusitis. You may experience the postnasal drip as a constant feeling of mucus at the back of your throat.
Now I have post nasal drip and my laryngitis is still there although getting better. I have done everything for the laryngitis, steam, cool mist humidifier, room temperature water (about twelve 8oz glasses a day), resting my voice. It is getting better very slowly. Now I have a post nasal drip and I am coughing up greenish/yellowish sputum but it's from the back of my throat not my lungs anymore. I am going to try a nasal rinse today.
There is increasing evidence that GERD causes laryngeal signs and symptoms. Symptoms of reflux laryngitis include hoarseness, throat clearing, dysphagia, increased phlegm, and globus (feeling of lump in one’s throat) sensation. Despite suspected epidemiologic reports, there is still controversy about the prevalence of GERD-related laryngeal signs and symptoms. Studies have shown that 24-hour pH monitoring may not be the perfect test for diagnosing atypical GERD.
After weeks of having bad cold symptoms and laryngitis, I was diagnosed with GERD. I was worst at night, having to sit up all night, because of an extremely runny nose and coughing and choking on the discharge in my throat. I currently take 40 mg nexium before breakfast and dinner, for about 2 months now. Yesterday, I forgot to take the morning nexium. By noon, I was having a full blown "allergy" attack.
If you are coughing and have lost your voice. That is laryngitis. The larynx is your voice box. If what you have is a viral infection, antibiotics will not help you. If on the other hand if it is a bacterial infection you will require a course of antibiotics. If you bring up phlegm that is yellow, green or streaked with blood, you will need to go back to the clinic and tell them as you may need an antibiotic or penicillin.
She has gradually been losing her voice (which is now completely gone) for 3 days now, as well as coughing up phlegm. Just today she has been refusing her food. I recently moved a new kitten in, and haven't been able to get her shots yet. My cat has most likely caught something the new kitten was carrying. I'm unable to see the vet until Sat. (I also plan on having the kitten vaccinated on this day as well). My question is, will waiting another day be OK?
Since moving out of the lady's house, I have ever since had the most almighty, hacking, crackly, phlegm producing cough which sounds very similar to a smokers cough-I have NEVER ever smoked in my life. It is definitely worse at night and first thing in the morning. Neither have I had any pets since. I can predict when it will be at its worst, especially after doing a food allergy test for 3 wks where the cough still existed, but no where near as bad as it is generally.
It is accompanied by laryngitis, coughing so hard that I choke and gag, and I can't sleep at all at night. The scenerio is sore, scratchy throat, head cold, shifts south to bronchial area, tons of phlegm (yellow, then turns green if it goes long enough)sometimes high fever for more than three days, and then pnuemonia if the doctors won't prescribe anything to help.
I had it for at least a week and noticed that coughing wasn't really shifting any phlegm and in addition to that, I could hear rather alarming noises when I breathed, weird clogging or wheezing sounds in my chest and throat. It got so bad that I ultimately fainted [or something] on a family day out. I really have no idea what that was. Is it usual for such severe cold symptoms? I've never really had a bad cold before that, so I have no idea.
When this 'tickle' hits my throat nothing helps but coughing until some phlegm comes up. Sometimes it takes up to a minute. It can hit any time. It gets quite embarrassing in a restaurant.
Try to AVOID BEING NERVOUS , have one or two drinks (no more)30 minutes before a speech,AVOID COUGHING. When the mucus is fresh (the first of a new bout of the problem) , the "eehmmm" works fine, the frog comes up, but straight away the vocal chords start producing a stronger batch.....and so on.. Try to "live with the Frog in your throat, that is the only it way it will go away naturally, always drink plenty of water anyway.
A horrid tickle/sting in my throat which no matter how hard you try to ignore or fight it, you start coughing...and coughing... and coughing. Due to the cough my bladder is rebelling, my eyes water constantly, and occasionally vomit. I went back to the Dr (new doc as my old one suddenly stopped practicing in December), and she started by saying it was my BP meds... I take Lisinopril/HCTZ.
I have not been on here and just now saw your note. I am still coughing and spitting up phlegm constantly. After being on Protonix for 6 weeks I am a bit better during the morning but after lunch my cough gets worse and after dinner I cough constantly until I fall asleep. I no longer throw up but the cough is severe. I think the Protonix may be causing insomnia as I can't fall asleep until 2 or 3am. I had a cat scan 2 days ago and will get the results next Thursday. (a week's wait!
It was from the anesthesia I was told ... probably with you, too, and coughing up phlegm from surgery if you weren't ill from a germ kind of thing. Congrats on the benign!
Then, tonight, she began gagging and when I asked her to show me her mouth, I saw this thin (the size of her pinkie finger) protrusion coming up the back of her throat almost touching her uvula. She began coughing (and has continued coughing, but not croup-like or anything) and then threw up. It didn't seem to really bother her, but she keeps gagging herself. HELP! I don't think it's epiglottitis, so why can I see her epiglottis? I'm sure that is what it is.
Chlamydia pneumoniae typically causes a respiratory infection that is at first acute, and then can cause troubles in the airways. I have had a chronic cought (viscous yellow phlegm) for a year. During the same time, I developed "late onset" asthma. One of the things that can happen if the bacteria die is a flu-like reaction called a Herxheimer reaction, which results from endotoxins released as the bacteria die off. I got this reaction on days three and into day four.
I think for some of us, a regular 10 day regimen of antibiotics cures the primary problem, but does not completely get rid of all of it, thus, we are left with this lovely coughing till we puke to try to get out the nasty phlegm to no avail. I would give my I teeth, not to have to go through this constant hacking up stuff that looks like an alien life form. I have an appt with an allergist that my husband has seen and I'm going to prompt him for the levaquin.
I'm barely able to leave the house it's so much and so often I have this mucus form and start the coughing and choking problem. Good Luck to you I hope you get some results.
Doc told me to suck it up and take throat lozenges, mildly helped, I have no coughing or sneezing, and no sinus issues. feels better when i drink warm water with lemon and honey, i workout alot but, this is really weird to all of sudden get throat pain after years of hanging out in the gym, i felt around and there is a small lump right beside my lymph node. if anyone gets word of a possible solution PLEASE let me know, this is becoming a ridiculous annoyance.
Gosh, candida is coming out of me EVERY day, but the coughing and sneezing persists. I don't even notice a DECREASE in symptoms, but since it is coming out of me I will keep at it. I might just have a ton of candida. It might be that I need to repopulate my gut with good bacteria which I will do after I've gotten rid of more candida. I took a bunch of anti-fungals last night and got a really bad stomach ache, which I think is a good sign that they are working.
