Common Questions and Answers about Coughing when lie down

coughing

Hi I am a pretty healthy 44 year old woman, when I lie down to go to bed at night.. I start on my back, sometimes its ok but then I may start to get a little tickle in my throat and then I get a dry little cough and I know I have to turn on one of my sides, sometimes I turn on the correct side and it stops if not I try the other side.. its weird.. what could this possibly be ?
Hi, This could most probably be post nasal drip associated with the chronic sinusitis that you mention you have. when you lie down, phlegm or mucus trickles down from your nose into your throat which could be causing your symptoms. Are yu breathless too when lying down? That would point towards a cardiac cause for your symptoms. Let us know about the chest xray and CT scan of your sinuses reports.
Hi, I'm a 24 year old male. I noticed recently that when I lie down to sleep or nap I would cough and will experience shortness of breath but when I sit down or stand up, it stops. Sometimes it happens when I wake up instead. I would cough several times but no phlegm comes out. I have past cases of asthma and cocoa triggers it but I haven't taken anything with cocoa for a long time already and the last time I got an asthma attack was back in 2009.
These disorders need to be ruled out. And when it is likely to occur lie down so that it improves blood supply to the brain. Take care. Regards.
When I eat food with high acidity or with milk in them if I lie down to sleep and turn on my side I start coughing for about 15 minutes. If I lie flat on my back I do not experience this coughing. I take Prilosec for my stomach and have had acid reflux for a number of years.
1. This seems to be a minor inconvenience according to some medical personnel. What if it happens once a day? 2. Would a heart pacer making sure the heart beat is never too low be of any use?
I only cough when I lay down at night to sleep. I get a tickle feeling in my throat and it makes me cough. Is this an allergy? I have never had any allergies before so I am not sure.
In addition, to avoid serious injury, when he feels a cough coming, he should sit down or lie down immediately. He should also drink ample liquid so that he does not become dehydrated since this could add dizziness to his situation.
I've eaten some classic triggers--tomato sauce, garlic, chocolate, etc. The cough is absolutely dry and uncontrollable when I lie down. I never really had a cough when my reflux was bad in the past, I would get the wheezing and throat tightening. Does this mean it's worse? My husband had some prilosec, so I took one today and will see what happens. Does this dry cough sound like a reflux cough? How long til I see some relief from the prilosec? Thanks.
During the day I still feel like there is something not quite right, that something is there below the rib on my left side and I can feel it when I lie down flat, although to the touch there is nothing. Should I be worried about this?
my face also turns purple when i black out tis morning couldnt breathe so i opened and stood at the back door when i started coughing blacked out and landed on top of a chain saw bashing my head into the concrete few cuts .
My problem is that over the last two days I now get palpitations when ever I lay down from standing....I have even had a couple when I have sat down quickly. I took myself to ED (ER)this morning as it is freaking me out. I have never had them before when I lay down. Of course they did not catch any and said they are benign but it really has me worried. Why all of a sudden would this develop. I am a 38 year old female. I have my period at the moment but never had these with any other period.
I was still coughing when I would lie down to sleep or eat a lot at one sitting or eat certain foods. Even though my barium swallow was negative I was diagnosed with GERD. I know take a PPI (protonix) and do not have a problem with coughing. So my advice to you would be- Get a chest xray Have a PPD test done Have a barium swallow test Have a Sinus CT See an ENT Hope this helps a bit. I coughed for 9 months until I was diagnosed, pure hell.
Horrible cough at night only (sometimes when I exercise as well) when I lie down. It is also hard to breath and at times a lot of clear mucus, just like I had a horrible cold. After about 3 hours it goes away leaving me exhausted. Sometimes after I eat I get the cough as well. The mucus alternates with the coughing and hard to breath. I am wondering if it can be silent reflux. I am also taking lots of natural supplements in capsule form.
I have been coughing all day for the last 3 months as long as I stand up or sit down. ISome days it is better and some days it is worse. After I lie down within 10 or 20 minutes I do not get the feeling of cough and I seem fine. My doctor is quite confused. My xray was fine. I am taking anti reflux medicine and is not helping. I used sprays and did not help either. Do you know what this could be?
I do know that dosepaks that start with 6 pills and work down are good for the first 3 days, then it starts to come back as the dose goes down. I've had better luck when on a steroid for a longer time period.
This lasts about 40 minutes to an hour-- if I run the fan and lie down it eventually goes away, but it always feels like it's going to get worse, almost like I'm going to start coughing up blood. Can anyone tell me what these weird symptoms are about? Thanks!
Then wake again an hour later, drink water and go back to sleep again. However, some nights I will have a little cough when I lie down and then sleep all the way through the night Also sometimes when my throat is really itchy and I have had a bad day of coughing, I find I cannot talk much without coughing inbetween sentences and talking to people becomes difficult to do. Finally, other symptoms that occur at the time of a coughing fit which can occur several times a day..to all day.
Now I know how people can drown on a drop of water. When it finally went down, I had a coughing fit so bad, well, let's just say I hope to never experience that again! The allergist I saw did say something about my throat being very reactive from so much coughing, so I guess that's why the choking. I do find some relief from using a throat spray with some kind of anesthetic in it, followed by lozenges with anesthetic, like benzocaine. Make sure it contains the anesthetic.
why do i feel light headed after meals and sometimes i feel so even when im sitting down and not even eating. I did an ECG and an echocardiogram on my heart it was normal, but somedays i feel light headed especially during mid-day, even when im sitting down. My heart races sometimes but it`s mainly caused by me worrying if im gonna faint or die. It sometimes is accompanied by slight head aches, it lasts for anytime betweeen 15mins-1hr.
the weird thing is I never get them when i'm being active.. or even when I exercise. It's usually when I sit down alone, or am home alone, when others are around I don't tend to notice them as much. Not to mention I check my pulse constantly. I do drink caffeine such as coffee and sodas, chocolate..
He is doing the awful noise again every time he lies down. He is taking his time to lie down and when he puts most of his weight on the carpet that is when he groans. I'm going to take him to the vet tomorrow as I feel he is doing the groaning due to pain rather than a sigh of relief.
It happens to me when numbing drops are put in my eyes for an exam, but it hasn't happened with any general anasthesia. Go figure. I get nauseous, sweaty, dizzy, and I have to lie down within a few seconds before I fall down or pass out. It is really unpleasant, and there is nothing I can do to change it. However, I have heard that a shot of atropine before the anasthetic can help prevent the response. It opposes the action of the vagus nerve and helps keep the heart rate up.
Not when I am drinking water or eating, but just during normal swallowing. It doesn't click when my head is down or up, but it clicks when I am looking straight. If I put my fingers just above adams apple I can feel a click. Please help me to identify what it could be.
It happens mostly when I lie down, esp after I wake up. I think this is maybe due to excess mucus or impaired cilia in the chest. But it could be some case of asthma too, I'm not sure, best is to see a specialist, ortry to figure it out by trying different things. I'm doing the latter as waiting time for apt with ENT specialist in UK is several months... apparently nasal irrigation plus increased consumption of tea with lemon might help, also inhaling.
Do they start when you stand up? Do they go away by themselves or do you have to do something to feel better (such as sit down, lie down)? You said that you had EKG's...did you ever have a holter or event monitor on you to record your rhythm for a period of time instead of a quick EKG which will tell the doctor what is going on with your heart at that moment? I have arrythmias, specifically SVT (supraventricular tachycardia)...it took the doc years to finally listen to me.
You do have do yuk it up and cough hard to get the junk out get right over the sink head down and you will have better luck coughing it out. I use the MucinexDM which helps calm the coughing at night. Good luck and give it a try.
Several times a day I have a problem with gagging, but it has not yet led to vomiting. I have a problem with breathlessness when I lie down; needless to say, this interferes greatly with my sleep!! When I recover from each episode, I feel like I nearly died. I assume this is from aspirating. I keep a constant mucousy phlegm in my lungs and don't ever really clear them. Where does all that fluid come from and why?
This suggestion will cause a massive family ruction though and I don’t want them all even more upset, but it seems that if nothing is being done for me in the hospital, then why remain when I can go home and lie about in bed and take the same meds I’m taking here anyway? OK the morphine is a bit of a problem, not something I can take at home but maybe I could get some patches for a few days? I’m really in a bit of a predicament as to what to do.
As to the posture issue, that is a definite YES. I notice that when I slouch in a chair or turn a certain way or even lie down they will act up, and this is even made worse if I have had a large glass of water or just eaten, so, YES, posture can be a definite contributor to the problem.
