Get a lot of rest. Drink plenty of fluids. Gargle with warm salt water or some other home-made gargle to wash away mucus and irritants. Avoid smoking cigarettes. Eat largely soft foods for a couple of days to avoid irritating your throat. Suck non-prescription cough drops Apply a warm heating pad, compress or salt plaster to your throat. Try steam inhalations.
Well anyways im getting a bad cough and its causing a sore throat. I read online that this is caused by quitting smoking cause ur body is healing and what not. Well just curious if any other former smokers went through this and how long it lasted. Does cough med help in this situation? I cant sleep its so bad. Coughing up phlegm every few minutes its soo annoying especially since i just got over a cold... I only have 4 wks left til my c section and just want to feel better by then.
Hello, My name is Melissa, I am 27 years old and I have been having a soreness in my chest and throat (it feels like a sore throat feels, but in my chest as well) when I breathe in for, oh, about 10 months now. It comes and goes.....when it goes I have this delusion that it's ok to smoke again, and then when I feel the soreness, I get scared and quit....the cycle continues. I have been smoking for 11 years and am having a horrible time quitting, even with this pain.
hi, welcome to the forum, lisavette . as you said you had this condition (borderline emphysema) i would think the best thing is going to the doctor , yeah :) and about the fact that you can't stop smoking..well, i've learned that when we must stop harming ourselves with our behaviour because our health is at high risk and we seem to be unable ....
I was wondering if this is a common adverse effect of quitting smoking? And if that is what it is, what can I do to deal with it? I've been drinking tons of water and started and exercise program but it doesn't seem to be helping. Will it go away on it's own, or should I go to the doctor? Additionally, I had heard that when you quit smoking it was common for a strong increase in appetite and weight gain.
I have pain in my throat - seemingly in the trachea or esophagus (for several weeks) thats very mild and comes and goes, sometimes its like a sore throat, sometimes its like a short (3 seconds or less) "pinch" or fiery pain; it seems to show up in slightly different areas (also comes up in my chest at times), I've done alot of online cancer research which just makes me more anxious (I didn't have any ear pain until I read that its a symptom - now I sometimes do...

However a few weeks ago i got a sore throat and a bit of an infection and didnt stop smoking during that time.. which worsened the mucous production and caused my mucous to become salty in taste.. made my throat feel very swollen and irritated.. I told my family he said its most likely just allergies and getting over the infection and i decided to take it upon myself to quit smoking until these symptoms disappear at the very least..
When I have a cold they are more frequent and usually come with a sore throat as well. I have heard many suggestions... like bread/food particles stuck in tossil tissue, post nasal drip (mucus) but I have not spoken to the ENT.
you have only been smoking for 4 years. maybe you have a bit of a sore throat, post nasal drip or maybe a small chest infection go and check with your doctor but dont worry 4 years of smoking its not a lot.

May just be sore from healing after quitting smoking and was very sensitve when he started smoking again.
It's not just my lungs that are sore but also my bronchioles, and my trachea too... I had a strange sensation in my throat too... I had't ever felt like this after quitting smoking usually just getting cravings and going through withdrawals. And strangely I'm not coughing either or have much phlegm... I wonder maybe my cilia in my lung linings are destroyed and can't move this stuff out any more? But this time I'm sick and going through painful withdrawals...
I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
I also get thursty If I dont drink water. I start to get a dry throat and mouth... If i drink anything else that is not water my breath gets worse.. please help!
I hope that you can continue to progress. And you're doing great with quitting smoking. I've heard it's one of the strongest addictions to have in the world.
I am a 66 year old, very active horsewoman. Who, after quitting the disgusting habit of smoking for the past 45 years, quit 10 years ago and I continue to eat,eat,eat and gain weight. I have thought about starting the bad habit of smoking again, but am now reading a lot about Topamax for weight loss. My husband developed migraine headaches after a sever stroke about 5 years ago. He went thru all the depakote, etc. for depression, and then in early 2005 had another stroke.
Hi, I am 61 and spit bright red blood first thing after a nights sleep, I do not bring up any during the day even having coughed and maybe brought up phlem. I do have a sore thoat most of the time but do not have a problem swallowing food. In march 2009 I stopped smoking after a second heart attack. My sense of smell is now almost non existent, although this is supposed to improve after quitting cigs ?.

Not only that but your lungs are trying to correct themselves after quitting smoking. Get a complete pft, not just a spirometry done and request a ct as well. These will tell you everything you need to know. And remember, for some reason only 25% of smokers get emphysema but chronic bronkitis is under the copd umbrella as well. No need to worrying until you know you have something to worry about. Congrats for quitting! I am still struggling with that.
If this is worrying you now then common sense tells you pack in that smoking, it wastes so many lives and for what. I used to smoke years ago and quitting is not easy, but its a challenge you have to win, smoking is not an option.
He also checked me for any type of ahsma symptoms and there was no wheezing or signs on the x-ray. My blood pressure was very good at 120/60 and my heart rate was great since quitting smoking. He has put me on an inhaler (Proventil) and I have been on it for two days at 3 times a day. It doesn't seem to making a huge difference. Even when I am talking at length I feel like I am getting a little short on breath.
As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
After taking the medication for a few days, I developed the worst yeast infection that was so sore and swollen. I also developed fissures that it was nearly impossible to use soap, because it burned so bad. After using an over the counter cream like Monistate for 7 days it cleared for nearly a month, but after that I've had at least 4 others times, all with extremely painful fissure that seem to tear in the same spot.
