Coughing sounds like seal

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing sounds like seal

coughing

It sounds like either allergies or reflux triggering the running nose which triggers the coughing. You need to know and treat the cause. Asthma is also a possibility. God bless.
He is miserable. The cough sounds like there is a seal stuck in his throat but like I said pertussis was negative. The only thing I did see on the internet was that Zyrtec can cause a cough, anyone hear of it causing this type of cough?
Coughing up blood sounds like lung/esophagus issues. Heavy drinking can cause esophageal cancer...has he been checked for that?
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.
sounds like it might be a sinus infection, the coughing might be from post nasle drip. and i would call the dr. because you might need antibiotics. being pregnant, i would suggest the dr. because left untreated it may turn into brochitus and then possably pnuemonia. better safe than sorry. but in the meantime my dr. has also told me the tylonal products are safe.
Two weeks ago we notice our son getting a cough, dryish (sounds like an asthma type cough - our older son and hubby gets asthma) after 2-3 days, he wakes up coughing and unable to breath. AND GETS WORSE WHEN HE PANICS ABOUT IT! The coughing sound like a seal (classic sign of croup we are told - and consistent with the two times before that) he has this for about 4-5 days and now he has a wet/moist cough and runny nose.
And you would know the difference between hearing a cough or sneeze, as a cough sounds loud and scary like a seal barking. If kitty is coughing along with the sneezing and the eye issues, that is a very bad sign, and he really should be seen. Talk to your Vet about starting kitty on Lysine, an Amino Acid that will help build up kitty's immune system against the herpes and future URI's. Best of luck with this, and please keep us posted...
it looks like their coughing and gagging, and it sounds kind of like a seal or a goose. I have taken them so many times to the vet so they can witness it, and of course, they wouldn't. But finally we were in for something else, and one of them did it, he said that pugs especially get these when they get excited, and that they aren't really dangerous, just to calm them down and keep an eye on them. I'm not sure if it's the same thing, but I do know how frustrating it is!
Sounds like your baby could have croupe. Her cough may sounds like a "barking seal" as we say in the NICU. Croupe is a virus that effects the upper airway. It usually presents in kids 6 months to 5 years of age. In other terms, its just a really bad cough that is self limiting and will run its course. Keep her well hydrated. A room humidifier may help loosen some of the secretions. Keep an eye on her respiratory efforts. Make sure when she unhales her chest doesn't suck in.
I too have developed a chronic cough. I too have seen the ENT and was told it was acid relux and was prescribed medicine which seemed to help at first, but then did not. My cough will come and go, but never full go away. I will cough so hard I want to throw up and when talking I have rto stop and cough between words. It is getting very anoying. I also have been waking up with a horse voice which made sense with the acid reflux, however I do not think that is the right diagnosis.
I don't know if my cough sounds like a seal, though. I have trouble with those kinds of descriptions. It sounds strained or almost choking. I don't know if that helps at all. Very loud.
Prior to HSV2 my complexion has always been clear except for some few remaining scars from having chickenpox when I was a child. It's the rashes, and coughing that concerns me the most. The coughing and clearing of my throat is constant. I've taken up exercising on the regular which has helped with the back pain to some degree. My question is does HSV2 impact the immune system as well? My doctor just prescribed me with Valtrex to be taken daily not just when I have an outbreak.
seeing spots- thank you! my ds is playing and smiling like normal and does not have a fever. when he's sleeping he breathes fine, its when he's awake when he coughs and the snot afftects his breathing. he does not have stridor. i've not raed about 'spasmodic croup' but that sounds a little more along the lines for what he sounds like. last time in october when he had this it wasn't during the day, only at night and only a couple times when i heard the barking sound.
Ashtyn started wheezing and coughing really hoarse. He sounded like a barking seal when he would cough. They did a breathing treatment while we waited for the RSV test to come back. (he is getting the RSV vaccine) After the test came back negative we had to do another breathing treatment. They finally sent us home with a nebulizer and I have to give him a breathing treatment every 4 hours until we can get into the ped on monday!!! If its not one thing its another with this kid!!!!
I have days that I cough and it sounds like I am a big seal barking and I can hardly walk from the bedrom to the bathroom. There are other days that I can go grocery shopping and even WALK with a cart. I agree with the other person unless he is hospitalized I wouldn't go down....and remember he may only need a day or two to adjust meds or something. See if he will put you on his doctors and hospitals list to release his condition to you.
In cases such as yours, confirming exactly where the leakage is occurring is essential. It sounds like yours is thought to be in the thoracic level, but if this has not been confirmed, appropriate imaging with CT myelography, or cisternography. Sometimes when epidural blood patch is not successful, extradural blood patches may work. Bedrest, hydration with intake of a lot of fluids, and analgesic medication are necessary adjuvant treatments.
Are you sick with a runny nose, sore throat, cough, possibly even goey green and brown stuff coming out? Well, you're not alone, you've got a cold like millions of other adults right now around the world. Colds are upper respiratory infections that are almost always caused by viruses in adults. They typically get better after a week to ten days.
The cough sounds like a chronic bronchitis. I don't really have any answers for the rest. Sounds like you may be allergic to something. I'd consult a physician asap and not stop until they give you answers. It must be scary to have this condition and it definitely sounds like it's taking away the quality of you life. best of luck to you.
I still cough some but nothing like it was and not coughing up all the gunk at night and having to sit up for 30 min to hr before I could go back to bed. Often a cough is caused by several different things. I also had lung tests before my surgery and they came out fine. Just make sure that you have the best bariatric surgeon around. Mine did a loose wrap and I am able to burp etc. I think the rest of my coughing is allergy.
I live in NY so I'm not too far away and for the past two weeks I have been coughing so HARD all night long (I sound like a giant seal I really do with this harsh bark) that my eyes are starting to get black and blue from lack of sleep. It sort of does make sense with the lungs/nose situation maybe it's a grass or tree pollen allergy contributing? Did you try some benedryl (like I am going to tomorrow once I get paid!
My son is only 6 weeks old and was diagnosed with the same thing. No worries. I only hope it disappears like you say...stay strong, if its improved almost completely theres a good chance that in time it will be gone!
At least I am not climbing the walls like the first few days, only minor sweats, a bit of coughing and bouts of sneezing, so I suppose it could be much worse, I have read on the forum about people thinking they are over the W/D only to be reminded they are not out of the blue.
These include a cough (nonproductive -- sometimes it feels like I have to, other times it is like me willingly coughing to try to cough up what feels like tightness or pressure in my chest), the aforementioned pressure, and some chest pain that a doctor diagnosed in july as costochondritis -- which has been getting worse or more constant in the last few months, especially with exercise.
We just keep one in his room now. I'm glad he's acting better. It sounds like he's on the mend now.
Another doc said it sounds like a Hernia. Im still stumped but like the rest of us here WE KNOW... ITS NOT NORMAL ! I take great relief knowing I am not alone and want to thank all you guys for coming forward and tlaking about it. Im 27 years old, male, a bit over weight but generally quite fit.. i go to the gym 4-5 times a week and ive lost weight and its STILL there.... sometimes after pressing on it with my fingers it has a littles pain and goes away.... UNTIL...
I used to smother myself with body spray and perfume, but that didn't help, didn't even mask the smell. Like I say, for 26 years I've been wracking my brains, trying to find an answer. What intrigues me now, reading this thread, is the 'energy' thing that someone mentioned. There could be something in this and I'd love to hear others' experiences. For instance, light bulbs blow all the time around me. The radio gets so much interference that I've stopped listening to it.
Would be interested to hear from anyone who tries it out and whose partner can tesify to snore-preventive aspects of gadget. Sounds like a lot of people would rather pay the doctor and the pharmacist for chemical solutions to simple problems. Hey, if you're into chemistry, who am I to knock it?
15 last night and coughing that sounded like a seal - I kid you not. He wouldn't calm down and ended up making himself throw up. By that point I had changed and DH loaded him into the truck to go to the ER. On our way to the hospital he settled down and his coughing eased up a lot, so I turned around and came home. I ended up sleeping with him last night just to make sure he was okay :-) So, not much sleep last night...I called the doc's first thing this morning and they got him in at 11.
Actually my constipation started about two years ago, and comes and goes. But I have been free for about 6 months. Prior to two years ago I never had constipation before.
