Common Questions and Answers about I keep coughing like im choking

coughing

The past few days, with this horrendous headache, I've also had another problem crop up. I keep waking up choking on my own saliva. It's terrible, because then it irritates my lungs and I end up having coughing fits; not good with a pressure HA obviously. I've also noticed that most of the time, when I breathe, I have a whistling, kind of like asthma wheezing, but i don't feel I'm having asthma and my inhaler doesn't make it stop. This has been going on for a few weeks.
All that comes up is clear **** that feels like glue. I honestly feel like im goint to sufficate because after I cough I have to make myself burp to casp for air. My dr seens to say I have bronchitus. She put me on an antibiotic for three days and it did nothing for me except make me want to eat everything in site. She also gave me an inhaler and that didnt do a thing. Please keep me posted as will I when I find out what is going on.
(.. Hellpp what to i do . mum said ill be fine but im reali scared coz i keep coughing and i feel like its in my lungs is this bad. And does anyone ever feell the same. ???
I have never been diagnosed with any kind of respiratory problem like asthma or anything like that, nor do I have any food allergies, but I was wondering if maybe I should tell my doctor about this problem and if maybe it is a fixable thing? Does anyone else have a similar problem?
If I am not drinking constantly it seems like my throat gets stuck together and this causes coughing and choking sensation. I am getting heartburn and when taking antiacids I get nauseated. I begged my PCP to order some type of tests and she ordered an ultrasound on my thyroid in October and I had several growths measured on it. Was immediately (same day) referred back to endocrinologist but their next appt was not until 12/29.
Hello, I exprienced that before.. im coughing for 2 months i took all the medicine that my dr gave to me but it didnt work... It possible sarcoids (search sarcoids in web for more info) thats the number 1 symptom (never ending cough/dry cough -take note) ask your doctor for chest xray to make it sure.
whenever I'm in the shower, I'm guessing due to very high moisture, I keep getting the same white mucus creeping up my throat. I sometimes gag and cough forcefully trying to get it out. And it always looks the same. White foamy mucus. And, it tastes salty... if that helps. What if anything can I do about it? It's been months.....
in other words once I start coughing, I keep coughing for a while until it decides to stop. I am constantly straining muscles from the intense coughing, I've coughed up blood twice. I finally had a CAT scan and it shows that my lungs are fine, except from some harmless scarring from prolonged coughing. Antibiotics have no effect on the cough. I've used Tussionex (codeine cough syrup) for years, but drs. don't like to prescribe it, so I use it when I can't stand it any more to make it last.
The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good.
It comes in spasms like 5 or 6 bursts of coughs at a time - deep unproductive coughing. I feel like I am choking and there is something stuck in my throat. X-rays don't see this. What in the world will they be looking for when I go and has anyone had anything like this? I KNOW I am sick - they tell me I am sick, but act like it's no big deal....except urging me to get seen by a specialist right away. I am exhausted and want this resolved - what do you think? HELP!
Hello, I have had a total removal of my TT said it was graves disease(still dont know what that is) never had any problems now I feel like I am choking. The best advise if a dr tells you that you need to remove your thyroid RUN I dont think it is necessary to remove it as it seems to function every part of your body. I too am now experiencing hot sweating which I never had before.
It feels like there is something stuck in my throat and it makes it to where I feel like I have to cough. When I do start coughing I get to the point that I gag and almost end up getting sick.There is mucus also and my cough is a hacking type of cough. when i take a allergy pill the cough seem to subside a little.
i'm almost in tears at this point...then i keep picking at my brain and finally i got it...lately her and this little boy have been playing this kissing game...and they kissed around 11am(i can't say what was the cause weds) but they brought peanut butter in her room at the hospital and she got worse within minutes..hives were back etc etc so...they say its peanut allergy at this point...
) But why do I still have swelling, water retention, abdominal ditention, and choking at night? Any thoughts?
But with this little guy, I've been exclusively breastfeeding him (when he's with me) from day 1, and when I try to feed him a bottle, it's so awkward for me, like wearing shoes on the wrong feet, lol. I suppose it's the same type of issue for Greydon, which is why he fights me so much if I try to give him a bottle. Anyway, I guess the latest test of him "reconciling" with the bottle will be today.
wow, thank god I really thought i was nuts i keep having my kids and husband stand in the exact area that im standing in to see if they can smell what im smelling and they think im absolutley nuts ..I make them smell everywhere..and nothing. this was going on for about 6 months a year ago and now its back again. and my whole family said "Oh god we remember this, she's gonna make us smell evrything again"!!!Because yes people its back.
I recently had a bad viral and bacterial infection in my lungs and blood (with pneumonia). I have been feeling better however after recieving the antibiotics beginning with amoxacillin, I have been getting red blochy rashes on my neck, chest,back, and biceps. My rash does not itch but does feel very hot. Most importantly my rash will appear for no longer then 10 minutes and then dissapear. Hours or so later it will come back in the same spot with minimal if any swelling.
You can stop breathing for 1-9 seconds and then wake up to light sleep or completely awake, choking, coughing or gasping for air, with your heart pounding, or 3. You can stop breathing for more than 10 to 40 seconds, and then wake up go back to sleep. Depending on how sensitive your nervous system is, you will either wake up quickly every time you obstruct, or wake up after long breathing pauses. A pause for more than 10 seconds is called an apnea.
I cryed all evening I explained to my husband something is wrong and I don't know what it is hard to describe. I don't like telling him but, I fear if I don't and something does happen to me atlease he will know. I'm sick everyday and don't know why? It almost feels like I'm doing something wrong. I did realize that it seems to happen more often every time I go to Aqua therapy. Can the pool actually be causing me to be sicker? I'm really at a lost for words.
I'm 50 years old and in pretty good shape, so i hope to heal fast. I can't wait to get back an exercise like I did before this accident. I had lost 50lb's before the accident then put back on 30lb's pretty depressing, so I really am looking forward to get back to my exercise program. I have a GREAT PS and he is one of the best in my area, plus I know of other people who had him, and they don't even feel thier pain no more.
i dont think i have any problems like that. i break out with brown circles when i work out from the sweat but thats all. i dunno what it is but i've had them 4 about 2 years. What about drinking water ? can you do that? Must fluids are basically water. what do you guys do?
Mine measured 9x6x5mm, I know this is about 1/2 inch. Im wondering why it feels like I cant breathe. I now can no longer eat anything, without choking, and having to swallow way too much, plus gagging when I have tried to swallow something bigger than a noodle. I am now down to drinking chicken broth, and boost . Ive tried noodles, but I have to keep swallowing to get them down, and then cough like no other. Is it the cyst that is causing me to not breathe or eat?
I knew it was a narcotic but I didn't know to what extent. The coughing is so bad I cracked a rib last year and I also vomit...I was worried if I took it with the Bupe it might kill me? Thanks -Cold..
so been 8 days, headaches still there, only if ur up and about, nose bleeds , so on, but getting better. i am going back to work tonight which i don't feel im ready yet, but i wanna keep my job. monday i get my tubes out so there you have it, that was my personal experience, everyone handles it different, but i felt it was terrible, and so far i cant tell u if it was worth it, since i have these tubes in supporting my septum. when they come out i will post again.
I also get this and I only get it when thinking about it....its like i feel im hyperventilating even though when I check im not...if anything im just breathing too deep...but then isnt breathing too deep the same as hyperventilating....but anyway.....if any of you, like me have noticed that it is worse when you are thinking about it or that it only comes on when you are not distracted...its probably panic.....and to those suggesting that it is asthma.....
of course she is ok now.....am I blowing things out of proportion? I keep thinking if I wasn't here he'd still have been on the computer while she was in her swing....which could mean sje would be dead right now....how do I explain why I am pissed at him?
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.
If you are a chronic mouth breather because of a stuffy nose, you're not alone. Do you feel like you can never get enough oxygen into your lungs? Do you feel tired all day no matter how much sleep you get? Have you tried various home remedies, over-the-counter medications or even prescription medications with no help? If you answered yes to any of the above, what you will read below will show you how critical it is to breathe well through your nose.
I finally I had a reason for all the choking on food, coughing constantly especiallly when I tried to lay down at night. I gained weight no matter what, my voice was scratchy, basically i was not myself. My symptoms started 8 yrs ago, right around menopause and I thought it was all due to getting older and lack of estrogen. NOPE. I am now able to reduce my Estrogen because my thyroid meds are helping me stabilize.
Huh, to think I was ok until my allergies became so bad, I ended up in the ER due to an asthma attack. Am I the only one? Im in denial. I keep trying to say I'm cured. I keep trying to blame my stress and say it makes it hard for me to breath. When I cough up mucus, I just blame it on something I ate, allergies, or just the start of a cold. LOL I know all of these make asthma worse. I guess I just need to accept it, but a part of me still doesn't.
