So I've had this going on for almost 2 weeks now, and I've had a total of 3 BM's the entire 2 weeks, yet I have lost weight due to not eating much due to my coughing. I feel horrible from the minute I wake up to the minute I fall asleep, my next thing to do is to buy some Miralax. If I can get one area of my digestive system working correctly I'd be happy.
I know she was crying because the next morning her eyes are almost white again. She is still coughing and of course she will be going to the vet with me. Wish her well because her loss would be terrible. I will post what happened after the vet visit.
But last night i was on a road trip riding along with someone else and stopped for a pit stop, walking into the mens room and found myself coughing on the way in and picking myself up off the mens room floor. I hope some one out there has an answer for what this is and how to beat it and make it go away faster.
Following a cold, flu or even during heavy periods of mold (damp/high humidity), I get a cough so violent that I cannot work. Episodes last up to 3 minutes, usually ending with a mouthful of frothy, white sputum. They leave me exhausted and are so intense I sometimes vomit. X-rays are always negative and my last oxygen level test showed 98%. I read that all of these are consistent with coughing asthma.
on a morning when i wake up i always need to cough and clear my throat since about a year ago. but now it has extended to needing to do it throughout the day. sometime the mucus that comes up is small hard sticky lumps that nearly make me be sick as they get stuck in my throat. or some times theres a lot of yellow and white flem. its never clear. I'm wondering wat the cause of this is as i can constantly feel it there at back of my throat like a coating.
hi my dad constantly spits up white sticky phlegm all day, every day! He will not go and see a doctor but he also finds it very hard to breathe. he did used to smoke and stopped almost a year ago and this has been happening since then. Its never dis-colored phlegm always pure white and sticky what could this be??
I generally stay up pretty late, and on the weekends i dont get too much sleep, usually 3-4 hours. late during the night, if iv been up for a while ill start coughing... i know most of this stuff sounds stupid and more than likely has nothing to do with herpies, but i dont know any other place to ask these questions.. i guess im too afraid to go to a doctor and get tested.. am i just being paranoid?
i have used nasal washes - saline sprays and it is still like the white or cauliflour looking things are up there ! i blow my nose and its clear mucus when i blow!
I've had a serious phlegm issue going for a while too, constantly having to clear my throat, with lots of bubbly, thick white ( or perhaps pink, hard to tell ) mucus. This sometimes makes me feel a little sick, but I've never vomited any up as yet. Along with this I've been suffering with diarrhea on and off for some time too. I feel this might be due to a lack of fiber in my diet, which I've been trying to up lately.
After things got more advanced, surgeons started working on alleged herniated discs and x-rays made things look suspicious. Then CAT and MRI scans showed up and they could look at all the arthritic bones of the spine better and it looked interesting. They could see bulges, arthritis, etc. and the "old idea of herniated discs" held on and so more surgery was done, again and again, but it is only rarely that people get better a short time after surgery.
A day ago I looked in the mirror to see how red it was and there are little white patch things all over my tonsils and back of throat. My son who is 1 has also been very very fussy practically crying all day long and refuses to eat most of the time. He has been like this for about four days now.My son has insurance so i will take him to see the doctor but i do not. Does anyone have any idea of what this could be and could it be related to my son?
As previously mentioned, pugs have an elongated soft pallet to the rear of their mouths, which can cause bouts of coughing, particularly if an infection or virus causes a flare-up of inflamation or irritation. Surgery can help (if this becomes a frequent problem for the dog), as it is possible to remove part of the soft pallet. For periods of coughing or laboured breathing (when no other reason can be identified), it is recommended to give a short course of corticosteroid and antibiotic.
Apparently fluid can seep from the back of the nose and go down the throat the brain reacts to stop the fluid going into the lungs which closes the voice box, this then stops you breathing, the brain then realises that the lungs arent working so wakes you up and that is why you wake up coughing and trying to get your breath, this is how it was explained to me. I have been told that it is not dangerous and that I will always wake up, it is just very stressfull.
I was also told that skipping one dose would probably bring it up. I've heard so many things, that I just don't know what to think. What if skipping a dose does not bring it up? I guess I'll have to go on another medication to bring it up? I've heard a lot about low HGM and platelets, but not much about WBC. I also called a nurse at Roche over the weekend, and she made a bet with me that it was because my medical providers were concerned about my WBC -- she was right.
I have had asthma since very young but have never coughed up this much sputum in my life, I am coughing up about 2 handfuls a day. I just wanted to thank you for posting this cause this is 1 more thing I can suggest to the MD to see if this will fix the horrible problem.
Limbolander with a follow up with MS neuro on Wednesday. Not really a question, just an update. I have "7-8 lesions in the white matter, periventricular". MS neuro said close follow up and he may or may not repeat the MRI. (Brain only, I've never had tspine mri). The last one was done at a different facility in May. I've since had one episode which I would consider a flare, staring with parasthesias in left foot, left leg, then actually a very uncomfortable pain.
But none of my symptoms are the same as when I had strep before. Well last night I slept thru the night without waking up coughing but noticed myself waking up to me gasping to get air.. I woke up with no voice today. Last night I went to bed with a crazy migraine. But I haven't run much of a fever. Other than low grade.. I feel this tightness in my chest..my cough is dry tho.. anyone else experiencing this? When should I see doctor?
What colour is this? White? or yellowish? Is she gagging, coughing? Hacking up? That could be kennel cough. If not, is she showing any signs of being unwell? Apart from obviously being disoriented by the situation, and probably tired? If she keeps vomiting, shows any unwell signs or symptoms, refuses food, or eats, and that comes up too, then I wouldn't hesitate to take her to be checked over at the vet's ASAP.
For the first 5 days all I had was the cough, then I developed some sinus pressure that went away after 2 days. Cough still there, not coughing up anything, just constant itching in my lungs. Then I started noticing a wheezing noise when I exhaled as far as I could. Went to an urgent care, was told it was probably just a virus and was given Advair to use twice daily and Albuterol to use. Albuterol seemed to make things worse so I quit after 2 days of using it. No difference with Advair.

For about eight years now (since I have moved to Huntsville, AL from PA), I have been spitting up yellowish-white pea-size chunks with a foul odor from my throat (usually come when coughing or sneezing). I have been feeling okay otherwise with no fever or any other symptoms. I have since been on a wide spectrum of antibiotics for various sinus infections which have not helped the chunks. They come up periodically usually about once every one to two weeks.
I don't care what happens from now on because I know I'm gonna end up in a white robe sitting next to the big guy in heaven". So that's reassuring. We know he is in a better place now where there is no more pain... Anya, I'm so sorry about your scare. I think I'd completely freak out. Good thing you went in when you did! I'm glad your little princess is perfect. I started working from home everyday now and will till the baby comes.
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'm almost always congested, blowing my nose to breathe or coughing up phlem, or dry coughing, especially at night when I try to sleep. I have to breathe through my mouth when I sleep, but not always when I'm up. I was checked for numerous things in the past couple months, including thyroid problems, diabetes, strep throat- all neg. My white blood cell count was elevated for awhile (absolute neutrohils), but the last cbc showed everything was o.k. Why do I have all these symptoms then?
