coughing

for about 2months now I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> cough, lots of mucus, wheezing, when I cough now i pee on myself which is embarrasing.

I developed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> dry cough today. I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> sinus infection within the past month and thought that I had gotten over it. Lately every time I talk for an extended peroid, or laugh, I find that I get a cough and after I cough I find that it's hard to breath almost like I've ran a marathon or something.
30 until I go to sleep. I feel like I'm gonna cough an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> a lung. Wheezing also? What can I do?
If a diagnosis has not been made by then, and the cough persists, another chest s-ray, not a CT scan, or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> visit to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> specialist would be appropriate. Don't worry about your getting short of breath after an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughingan>. That is very common. If you become light headed with the cough, be sure to quickly to sit down because harsh an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughingan> can sometimes cause you to faint. Good luck.
For 14 months I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> really bad cough, so severe that I vomit on myself, I have been given a chest x ray, CT Scan, nothing has been found, however I have been on prednisone, cough syran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>, antibiotics, in haler, my doctor has no idea and now they are sending me to see a pulmony doctor. I am so sick and can not sleep do to this illness.
Still <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> my head off. I just don't know about this cough, It has just been lingering and lingering throughout the treatment. It really worries me. Gotta go to the lung Dr. this Thur. I know she is going to say stop smoking. I try and just can't right now. God Bless us all.

try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> vapor bath (i know there is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> baby vapor bath product) and poor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> bunch into the bathtub and steam yourself out, or my grandma always used to do a warm bath and have her husband pat (pretty hard) on her back and she swore it really helped loosen mucus

You don't say if you are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> smoker, or how old you are. My 66 year old husband had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> CT scan for <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> blood, and had an MRI. He was told it was from a past infection, to repeat in 3 mos. He did, he was again told not growing and nothing to worry about....To make a long story short, 6 mos later, after an MRI less than a month before, he all of a sudden had lung cancer, lymph node cancer, 2 brain tumors, and bone cancer. Gee, it metastasized in under a month to all of those places?
I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> spirometer test, sputum sample, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> bronscopy, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> biopsy, multiple CaT scans, multiple chest x-rays, a PET scan and many many blood tests. all of these tests have come back insignifant. My current diagnosis is lung cavity disease. I was initially diagnosed with asthma and COPD. Since then the Pulmonologist has taken off the COPD diagnosis. Since this had not happened for several months we thought it might be over. However, Sunday it started again.

an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughingan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> blood could be due to an infection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> sinus infection or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> infection. Sometimes trauma to the lungs can cause this or it could just be throat irritation. Therapy lies in treating the underlying cause. With your symptoms it is likely you may have developed respiratory infection . Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
The first point is to clearly establish if your friend coughed <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> blood, or vomited blood after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> bout of <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. Often patients cannot definitely distinguish between the two. The fact that the quantity was a "lot" makes me suspect that the latter was the case. Vomiting blood may be related to ulcers, gastritis, alcohol, anxiety etc. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughingan> a lot of blood is seen in some cases of lung cancer, although it is more usual to have blood-streaked sputum.
The major cause of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughingan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> blood is chronic bronchitis or bronchiectasis. Other possible causes of <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> blood include COPD, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> cancer, tuberculosis, pulmonary embolism, pneumonia and lung abscess to name a few. also, check to see if he is on blood thinners for heart disease, this could be causing the bleeding. I suggest he should go the ER, for immediate evaluation. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
It could be any of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> number of things including <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> infection.

2 weeks ago, after working out, I began couging severly for about 30 seconds. after it ended I began couging <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> small about of blood. In all it probably measured an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> to almost a tablespoon, and then ended. The next morning my chest felt like someone had hit me with a baseball bat. I went to the doctor the following day and he listened to my lungs, did the normal pushing of my stomach, checked ear, nose, and throat, and ran some blood tests.
