How long should a chest cold last

Common Questions and Answers about How long should a chest cold last


Dr. James a. Koufman, MD (a voice specialist ENT/Ear, nose & throat doc) wrote medical journal articles about an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> a cold (or other virus infections) can have the virus spread to the vagus nerve (or branches of the vagus nerve), and this can cause a person to first get GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease). Coughing can be caused by many, many things. One major cause of coughing is GERD. Spicy food, milk, and soy milk can also aggravate GERD, leading to more coughing.
I been coughing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> lot. My right side gets to hurting and my head from coughing so much. L<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st night my middle back started hurting between my an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shouldan>er blades. I have no appetite and I am very tired. My throat at times gets a heavy feeling in it.
I would think of throwing myself out the window... <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <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'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> drop. This was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> continual focus. I would throw myself into bed to control such thoughts. I finally had to do what I did not want to do.... go to a hospital. I was scared to death. They were not sure what to do with me. I was off the oxycodone now for about 2 months but had bad shakes and depression. They just gave me zoloft while I was with other people taking all kinds of drugs. I stayed for 1 week. But I had one major complaint...

No I just have atrial ectopics and sinus tachy.

I was worried about the scarey stuff like v tach but I don't have pvcs, not had 1 caught on any off my tests , just atrial ectopics so I guess that's a good thing!!

I took my last vicodin yesterday at 12 p.m.. I started taking lexapro on Monday and the side effects of the lexapro scared me enough to not take any of the vicodin yesterday. Please help. I am in the alone. Well with my BF, but my family does not can not know. I have a husband and 3 children, work full-time and go to school. I got a lot on my plate.

My last large dose of Percosets and Fioricets were l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st Monday and here it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> week - I won't say already because it has been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <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'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> week. I had a migraine pretty much the entire time and have been miserable, but I just used my Imitrex. I started to ween myself off the narcotics by dropping down to two 5mg tabs per day just of the Percosets, I stopped the Fiorinal right away. Then on the third day I went without anything and surprisingly didn't feel that bad. The next day was harder though.
I will not go to the Clinic or anything like that. My question is <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'>how</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'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> will my withdrawals l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st? 10mg for 7 months and 3-7 a day? I had one day of withdrawal the day before yesterday and it was UNBEaRaBLE. I sweat the bed wet constantly sweat my clothes, dirreah, extreme anxiety and my heart feels like it is going a million miles an hour. I would rather have the flu, the stomach bug and swine flu all at once rather then go through this and I am SO serious about that.
I have been on and off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <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'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> time. The l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st time I did the WD and cold turkey thing was 2005 then like I said I broke my neck. This has been really since like the fall I guess. Yes, my boy friend would dole them out for me, but I don't know if I can find another doc to write another script, I have about tapped out all of them in the area.
I been on Vic 10/325 for about 5 years following 3 ankle surgeries. The l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st surgery was in 2010. I started by taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> couple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> day, ending in 5-7 per day. I know to some that may not seem like a lot but it was more than I was suppose to take and found that I was running out before I could fill again. Total panic would set in! My ankle replacement doesn't always hurt now but I still had to take the pills or I feel horrible and couldn't get through my day. This is my 4th day completely clean.
It's been almost a year now and I went several months without any problems. I did get quite <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> few the l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st couple of months but the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> water always does the trick. in fact, I've had this so an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> now that I can calmly deal with the pain (less panic) and just seek out water as quick as I can. The only issue I had was getting an attack on the road and having to wait in line at a food/gas stop to buy a bottled took forever and I thought I was going to pass out!
Every time you get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span>, notice <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'>how</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> it usually starts in the throat with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> tickle, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> scratch, or a slight cough. It then progresses into chest congestion or travels up into the ears and the sinuses. You’ll have a low grade fever, mild chills, and a runny nose. Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right?
I've been getting sick with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> just about once <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> month for the past 6 months. My doctor told me it's because my asthma and allergies are not under control. I was on advair for a few months, and they switched me to asmanex because I was still getting frequent coughs. I'm on Zyrtec for allergies. I haven't been to an allergist yet to see what I'm allergic to (have an appointment coming up).
I eat very healthy for an american of my age. I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> multi vitamin every day and exercise regularly. I saw <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> doctor about it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> year ago. He told me it was a fungal infection and to wash with Selsun Blue. I've been doing that for over a year now and it is not getting better. actually it seems to have getting bigger in the last year. I don't have health insurance so it's hard for me to go to a dr. or specialist to resolve the problem.
I too, have been sick for 2 months....<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span>, flu, head <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span>, strep throat, head <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span>, all the while with severe fatigue and achieness. It's been contstant and I and my family are exhausted. I had bloodwork done today and we are checking for anything that might be amiss.
for any CII script filled, so the most you could fill at one time was 100 tablets, capsules, patches, etc., but no restriction on <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'>how</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'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> that had to l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st - you could fill one every day if the situation required it. The question of upper dose is nearly always up to the judgement of the prescriber. There are often administrative limits by insurance or whoever is paying (e.g., Medicare), though those most often are aimed at controlling costs more than they are concerned with therapeutic value.
The sure-fire way I know that I'm getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> (as opposed to just allergies), is that in the early days of having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span>, I get these persistent, painful hiccups that are really hard to stop with the usual methods. It's a clinically undocumented anomaly, apparently, that some of us get hiccups when we have a cold. Go figure!
in case anyone else has this problem, I want my experience to be available to them. There was very little to read on the DURaTION of initial phenobarbital side effects on the web, and I was very frightened by what I saw. So, here's what happened with my dog. The side effects (which were severe) lasted approximately three weeks. It is possible that they can last this an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>er.
