Along with that my left eye, and left eye only waters up uncontrollably. My throat stays scratchy for 15-20 min until i cough some excess water or liquid back up. Lastly, none of this happens during the day. I have the scratchy throat verrrrry faintly during the day, but nothing more than a cough would make it feel better. It has been doing this for the last 2 weeks, and i am starting to get worried. What could this be? I am on Zyrtec, but i have been on that for 6 years now.
Last , seen my Ent( yesterday) scoped my nose and throat and seen very little mucous but very dry throat because of the Bronchial pumps. It feels as if I have mucous in the back of my throat and very lethargic since all this started. I have lost 10 pounds, have very little apetite. I am now coughing alot less but it seems it is never ending . It is almost 2 months and I beleive that I caught this in Mexico, which the doctors disagree.
I think almost everyone here experiences some sort of Lung problems while on TX. A dry hacking cough --- without pain... Some folks get lots of mucous... and others dry out - and sometimes those develop into BACTERIAL infections. Highly unlikely TXers get VIRAL infections... But it does happen. Some of those problems become serious medical issues. Please do get it checked.
I am now left with a scratchy throat and a constant dry cough. My vocal cords seem to be very irritated. I get worse if I talk a lot. Additionally, I can't eat certain types of food anymore, such as anything with a sweet icing such as a glazed donut or anything spicy. I don't normally eat sweet stuff, but I occasionally have dessert after a great meal. Those types of food will send me into a coughing fit.

It could be allergies I too have a dry cough for many weeks, scratchy throat, sore itchy eyes.Fatigue, all tests are normal ..I think its environmental as I do know each day in CA they are aerial spraying , you can ask for a heavy metal test to see if it could be something like that ..
Get a good humidifier, as winter air and heat makes everything dry out and that aggravates the cough. Nasal irrigation is excellent; it washes irritants and pollutans out of your nasal passages; guaffunnissin, an OTC med often sold as mucinex is great for promoting secretions, which will help line the airways and should help the cough. Also, Ricola sugar free lozenges work well, along with not talking much.
I have asthma too but my inhalers never touched that dry scratchy cough I got with the meds. That is why I knew it was the meds and not asthma. And now that it is mostly gone, I really know it was the Incivek, or at least I think so. I agree, these meds affect everyone differently and also to different degrees. Plus, sometimes the side effects come and go. But just when you think they are gone, back they come in full force, LOL, especially the flaming diarrhea.

I found that sometimes though that warm water would ease my throat a bit and it seems like cold dry air triggers the coughing more. At first, I'll begin to cough every 10 minutes or so, then it becomes more frequent, every couple minutes and sometimes it'd get so severe that I just keep coughing until there is phlegm that comes out but it is clear. Its been so bad lately that my stomach and chest are hurting, sore, and I'm afraid that I may cough in my sleep.
I have had lump in throat feeling it is good when I wake up in the morning and as the day goes it just keeps getting there, was on nexium 40 mg, I would take it on and off it was good and now it is back, since of late I get this type of thing where I feel like some on my left side of throat or right side of throat like some vapour coming up to my mouth and then the cough starts, pain in front and back of chest that comes and goes, I am under stress too so I think it just get worse, burping and
This is my second time on treatment. Five years ago I did the dual threrapy SOC and relapsed. My throat was a little dry and scratchy then, but not to the degree I am experiencing now. I guess it's the Incivek causing the tipping point and making it more severe. Not that the INF and RIB SOC is a walk in the park by any means, but I can't wait to just be on those two drugs alone.
What in the world could be causing this tightness in my throat and chest? It almost feels like the swelling in my throat comes and goes.

He saw a dr this summer who stated that it was a tic and that they come and go. But now it's the grunt and cough and clearing of his throat. We are seeing a ENT next Tuesday. I'm so frustrated, and just wish it would stop! I worry about kids teasing him at school.
My throat gets so dry and scratchy I have to carry water everywhere I go. I even got my tonsils out thinking it would help...well it did for the sore throats I was getting all the time. But I still have this stupid cough. I also spit up gunk in the morning and my ears hurt. My husband has been spitting up brown sometimes in the morning, it's pretty gross.. He refuses to go to the dr. now because they don't help. Anyone have any advice or answers.
It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. 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.
It feels all the time there is something in my throat so I have to cough all the time as if to clear my throat, when I cough it's a kind of dry cough that nearly makes it feel like there is actually something in there, my tonsils feel weird most of the time (tho not inflamed or particularly sore, just... Weird) and I can actually feel the mucus accumulating there at the back and it's really thick and hard to swallow.
scratchy throat, swollen glands, headache and sinus and nasal congestion. A dry cough followed and eventually became productive...first clear then yellowish. The problem is that now I have a cough at night that keeps me up and then wakes me throughout the night. It is mostly dry again. I also have right chest pain. What do I do? Fever never above 100.
2 and a half months ago i started having a sore throat which usually feels dry, burning or scratchy. at the same time i started to experience heartburn which i never had before, also cough mostly when i was lying down. otolaryngologist said i have pharyngitis but none of the medication that i tried for it helped and i tried pretty much all the possible stuff. my tounge has also turned white, which he said might be related to stomach problems.
about 3 years ago all my ailments started; always have a lump feeling in my throat, sore, scratchy and dry cough. ENT told me I had LPR, I been taking acidphex for about 6 months, I feel better, but still I had problems.decide to go to a gastrology to find a relief, he wants to do a EDG, but I don't know if my throat would take it? THANKS, it is very helpful know other people comments!!
I live in the southwest so I imagine that is why my nose is dry and bloody most of the time. But I still have a drip in the back of my throat and when i try and cough it up it's dry; if i hack it out it either loose snot or yellow infection. I was just wondering what this is and what the common cure for it is. I had pnemonia twice when I was little and I don't want it to escalate to that. What can I do to help it.
