Laryngitis when to see a doctor

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis when to see a doctor

laryngitis

He has Laryingitis now for 6 days the poor little thing and can hardly talk he just lays on the couch, and only perks up for a bit when he has his childrens panadol when I can get him to take it. We went to the local pool on the weekend and that night I noticed he was fairly quiet (usually very active) so I felt his temple and he was burning up. In the middle of the night he woke up crying with nausea and in the morning he vomited.
This is the 2nd time I have gotten laryngitis in a month. When i get it, It goes away in about 3 days. If i go to see an ENT doctor what tests will they do on me? and will they give me medication?
After about a month, I went to see my PCP which told me I had bronchitis and laryngitis. She put me on Amoxicilian, Claritin, tessalon pearl (for the cough) and albuterol inhaler. After finishing all my antibiotic, continuing claritin, tessalon pearl (as needed) and inhaler, I started to feel better. Once again, the cough is back, runny nose, and no voice. Will I EVER talk again? Have I done too much damage to recover from this? And why do I continue to get sick? PLEASE HELP!
Would you recommend I see a doctor? It's showing no signs of letting up and I am unable to hear out of my left ear from the congestion.
If your doctor is amenable to Doxy right away, ask for a month. ILADS docs say a month is the minimum. A safer approach is 6 weeks of Doxy. Three weeks has as estimated failure rate of 10-30%. Unfortunately, only Lyme literate doctors know this. The IDSA and CDC still insist that 3 weeks always cures it. I encourage you to get into your regular doc ASAP to ask for the 4 weeks of Doxy. If you don't get that, then, find a Lyme literate doctor who will give you a longer course.
This site is what really helps me, your kind words are SO comforting and it really makes me feel like I am NOT crazy when I see someone on here with the Exact symptoms I have...LOL. I almost do a little silent cheer or maybe just a sigh of relief ! =) THANKS again for the response, oh and my hubby is from Utah his entire family are still there. We are in Mississippi now.
sometimes several in a row when it is acting up...often it seems a bit slow, and is hard to count due to all the long pauses and it scares me to death. I drink caffeine but am trying to get off of it gradually... seems my heart acts up more when I don't have stimulants. My bp has never been high and seems to run a bit on the low side: generally, 125/78, but has been 105/78 at times. I am a few pounds overweight with no other health problems.
I don't have a definite diagnosis yet (some of you might remember I'm waiting on those 9 lesions for a dx here). And I hope to see an MSologist while I'm there to see if they have any more insight as to what's going on. Thanks all for your tips here. I feel like I have things better in hand and am working on implementing your ideas into my trip.
Okay on-call doctor told me to take Mucinex DM to see if that dries the cough up. I have regular Mucinex (no DM). Does it matter? The reason I didn't ask her is because all of a sudden she said, "Oh, I have a delivery. Take the Mucinex DM and see if that helps!" before she had to go. Obviously a baby coming out is more emergent so that didn't bother me. But now I'm wondering what to take!
None of them seem to relate to the closure of the windpipe and cant give me a straight answer when I ask them. Has anyone an answer or better still has anyone else had this problem.
I want to know if there's anyway to get rid of it. When i cure my Acid Reflux, does it go away with it? Is my Acid Reflux the reason i'm having this lump in my throat? I don't really have the feeling of choking or any problem of swallowing, but i don't want to wait for it to get worse, or wait until i get those problems. Please help me get rid of this.
When I was planning my visit to Hong Kong last year, I was on the verge of purchasing a plan when I asked the insurance agent to explain this part to me. She said ANY change in symptoms, meds, MRI results, etc means the condition is not stable. I had happened to just switch meds, I think it was from amitriptyline to nortriptyline, which is virtually the same thing, but the latter tends not to cause as much urinary hesitancy.
Another was last year when my heart rate dropped to 29 (and I got a pacemaker). The third was for influenza (honest-to-God-influenza). Like you, I was exiled to a darkened bedroom where I moaned and offered death wishes for days. One bout with the Real Deal and I never want to risk it again. Tag on a relapse? Ahh.... NO! I also noticed the mixed result specifically when Tysabri was part of the equation. Just another aspect of MS that must be individualized I guess.

And those comments they made may be to do with a bug crawling around on the floor! (Just trying to make a joke!) It's very easy to get carried away with fear when you hear comments. It may be as simple as a goiter brought on by all your chest infections. The thyroid helps with the immune system so that is a common thing. It could be you have nodules too. I had a ton of trouble swallowing food too, and had an U/S which then lead me to my long journey to this point.
What happens when you have 1) nothing to do, 2) a sharp knife, 3) a large lime, 4) a patient cat, 5) too much tequila, 6) and it's football season? Along with laughing a bit on the weeks events and drinking a few cyber cocktails. I was hoping to put a wellness spin on it today. I suppose we can start happy hour around 5 tonight. In addition to meeting as friends - lets also focus one what has made us healthier through this. Anything goes!!
Does Restasis lose its effectiveness when placed in the fridge. Also when are results typically seen? I have a TBUT of 5 and hoping to see an increase if ues consistently.
I don't feel like I have any sinus related problems but I'm thinking about going to see an ENT (ear nose throat) doctor. I read somewhere that a person who made people allergic would only be symptom free during the day when his nose would randomly drain during his hot shower in the morning. But this only happened rarely for him.
THEN I TRIED NUMEROUS DRUGS AND A FEW SEEMED TO WORK BUT ONLY FOR A SHORT TIME ( 4-5 DAYS}. THEN I WENT TO SEE A G.I.SPECIALIST.I FIRST HAD AN UPPER G.I. THEN A ENDOSCOPY AND FINALLY A COLONOSCOPY. ALL CAME BACK NORMAL EXCEPT HAD A SMALL POLOP REMOVED(NON-CANCEROUS. IN BETWEEN ALL THESE TEST THEY HAD ME TRYING ALL THESE DRUGS PRILOSEC,ZANTAC,CIPROFLOXACIN,PREVALITE,LEVBID,FIBERCON,DICYCLOMINE AND I AM PROBABLY FORGETTING A FEW!
I can post the website if I am allowed -- it was from a reputable (looking) family doctor-type website. I know it is silly to dwell on symptoms, but I'm just wondering how two different "sides" of the medical community can have such opposing views on the post nasal drip thing... I had a high risk encounter 3 weeks ago (recipient of unprotected vaginal sex) and have been battling a sore throat, sinus pressure and post nasal drip ever since.
This is a rant. Feel free to add your thoughts or your own frustrations. I am so d@mned sick of my husband considering me lazy because I don't have the energy to keep the house clean. He does little to help. Occasionally he goes into a cleaning mode and will vacuum and wash floors. He does mow the lawn and handle the garbage.
Here are some ways to clear up the inflammation. Please check with your doctor to see which of these would work best for you. The most common cause of sinusitis is an infection, especially when the mucus is green. Sinus infections can be difficult to treat since they respond slowly. When any of the openings that drain your sinuses are blocked it will take longer to clear a sinus infection.
Howdy! Welcome to Part 4!
However I would recommend you see a doctor and take medication under a doctor’s supervision. Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, smoking, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal. Raise the head end of the bed by pillows to 30 degrees. Go to bet at least 2 hours after food. Maybe these tips will help you.
Hi. If you've had a cough which has been continuous for more than two weeks and does not seem to be going away, then you really should see a doctor (preferably an internal medicine specialist) to have yourself properly evaluated. That cough can have a lot of possible causes, from infection (pneumonia, tuberculosis) to allergy (asthma) and malignancy. The doctor should be able to differentiate what your condition is and give the right treatment.
I started to get my voice back and then I got a severe sore throat and it hurt to swallow and felt like my throat was swollen and it also felt like I had blisters on the back of my throat. My doctor told me to take regular mucinex to help with the pnd and to call back if it didn't get any better. After that was when my throat started hurting really bad. I've had a sore throat for almost 3 weeks now, and the severity fluxuates. And now my nose is very clogged and feels swollen.
I woke up a week ago with laryngitis. Later that day, I began to have pressure in my eardrums. Both ruptured by 10:00 PM. (My left eardrum ruptured around this time last year.) It is very difficult to hear above the ringing in both ears and, despite the fact I am on medication (antibiotics, hear drops, nasal spray, pain relievers), my hearing seems to be getting worse. Should I just be patient and toughen it out for the next two months, or should I see a ENT doctor?
Shortly after taking antibiotic, nasal spray and cough suppressant, I was suddenly experiencing episodes of coughing, then a sneeze, watery eyes and inability to breath due to a closed airway. This was very scary. This mostly happens when I eat or drink just about anything but water. At first I thought it was a seasonal allergy (Aug-Nov) that just decided to visit me this year in a big way.
She was at the Dr on Thurs for sinusitis and negative strep so now we know why it wasn't strep. Will call her Ped today to get a script for Prednisone. Been years since she's been on that and hope for a better night -- this came out of the blue and they say the 2nd night can be the worst of 3. 17 .... she used to get croup as a toddler/child all the time but it's been years. All I've read here says it's rare in an adult. Croup - http://www.medhelp.
