Throat problems at night

Common Questions and Answers about Throat problems at night

throat

So I cut dairy out of my diet except for a small amount in waffles in the morning and a small amount in instant mashed potatoes at night. Every thing seemed to be working then out of no where my throat starts closing up again at night. It's frustrating because if the alergy doesn't kill you, the lack of sleep will. I'm going to cut out the waffles and go back to eggs in the morning and see if that corrects it again.
I have been having these weird breathing problems at night right when i fall asleep i wake up because i feel like i cant breath. I hate it it has happend every night for the last week. And it will go on all night as soon as i fall asleep i wake up because i cant breath and my hart will race . Im going crazy and dont know what to do .
When I get excited like at football games or loud parties my throat seems to tighten up and my voice is altered to very low like laryngitis until I settle down and its over. At night I seem to have to clear my throat alot if I don't constantly drink water. I also notice that my tonsils have cryptic craddles and some times collect food thats eaten and decays causing very bad breath even when I can't see anything in my tonsils.
Could the throat problems be related to the surgery? What could be possible reasons for throat problems if surgically related? I know you will have to only speculate, since you have not see me or my files and I plan to follow up with my neuro. I would just like to be a little more informed.
I am sincerely confused about seeing the pulmonolgist when I do not feel sick at all in my chest. The cough is a dry tickly cough that has brought me to vomiting at times, and only at night! In addition, I am going to school for Sonography (ultrasound). Upon fellow students scanning me, my gallbladder has enlarged considerably since the beginning of the semester (Jan - May). If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.
I wake up every morning with absolutely no moisture in my mouth or throat and sometimes wake up choking during the night. I keep a glass of water beside my bed as this gets rid of the choking sensation when it happens (Only happens once or twice a month) and also helps with the sore throat in the morning. The dry throat continues through the day and I find it difficult to swallow.
One more possibility is that she has (cough variant) asthma ( a type characterized by cough rather than wheeze) and, for many persons with asthma, their respiratory problems are worse at night or in some cases, limited to the night-time early morning hours. I suggest that she check with her doctor about these possible causes of night-time cough.
I've got other problems, but those others are old problems--like the vision ones, etc. My vision, by the way, is not good at night and early mornings when it's dark. Anyway, on to the thing that is most concerning me . . . Last night, I woke up in the middle of the night choking on my own spit! I coughed for a good hour and half (and I'm still coughing this morning) trying to get the sensation of something in my windpipe out. It kept me up for two hours and I went back to sleep.
I have had coughing spells at night for over a year, it only happens after I lay down. I went to my doctor a few months ago. I have had a barium test and was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia, which of course is causing my GERD. I have tried Zantac, prilosec, and now Nexium and I sleep with my head elevated with a 7" wedge and a pillow. I am still having problems with coughing after I go to bed, it causes a tickle cough in the back of my throat.
When the tests come back negative, she just assumes it's Acid reflux disease. The thing is, Most of the time, my symptoms only come at night. I feel like there is stomach acid rising in the back of my throat. I told my doctor this and she put me on Prevacid. Then, on some occasions, I wake up nauseous. It's strange becuase it's not that I feel incredibly horrible upon waking, I just become incredibly restless and and can't sleep. Then out of nowhere, I just know that I need to throw up.
Lady, when I was on tx,,,I also had lots of sore throats. The meds will dry you out so that is why the sore throat. It helped at night when I went to bed to have a humidfier in my room. Also,,drinking as much water as you can helps and if my throat was hurting really bad,,,I would rub vicks on my throat also at night and would feel better in the morning. Hope it gets better soon!
i am hypothyroid i have a goiter that grows than 6 months later shrinks but latelyi have a feeling in my throat that feels like hands around my throat or like something in my throat i also have a cough nothing severe and i feel a conjestion in my throat my dr seemed to think it was acid reflux which i do get at night almost every night when i go to bed. also occasional sore throats i do have a hard time swallowing some things like vitamins which discourages me from taking them.
I have been gargling with warm salt water constantly and using Chloraseptic at night and in the morning to reduce the pain and eating cough drops during the day just to keep something in my mouth so it doesn't hurt. It is really becoming annoying because it isn't getting better. If anything it is slowly getting worse. First question is could this just all be from stress? Second question is could this really be Thrush and my Dentist just missed it? Third question is what else could this be?
My angina is at night, or before noon. It does not happen in response to stress, I am sleeping! I am exercising about two hours a day, five days a week. 75 minutes yoga class, followed by 60 minutes on machines. I keep my heart rate at 110-125, and I am 42 yrs old. When I exercise, I have my nitro with me, but have never had to use it. No angina then. I take Isosorbide before bedtime. A couple of times a week I still have angina, even with the Isosorbide.
If it is happening that frequently, it should be relatively easily to capture. Most night time SVTs that happen at bedtime are anxiety related, but it is worth proving on event monitor. I hope this helps.
The Fibromyalgia is not a concern anymore as it doesn't bother me, the pain is gone. But these throat problems persist, they come at random and it has no consistency. I should also mention, I talked to a few doctors about it, who all shrugged and chalked it down to an anxiety disorder. I seen an ENT last year, who felt around my throat and looked down it. Said he felt nothing, seen nothing. He told me there is nothing to worry about, It's just problem with painful muscles in my throat.
Since July 20, my throat has felt swollen and tight. At times I have trouble getting down food or drink. I went to the ER the first night it started, because I thought it was an allergic reaction. The doctor just gave me an over the counter drug for allergies. Now, I am considering acid reflux. I've had trouble in the past with heartburn. Could this be the cause of it, and how can I go about relieving the problem?
Also, a salt water nose spray might help the sinus', at least untill you can see a dr........also, Cepacol sore throat/post nasal drip cough drops has been helping my throat, untill I can get to the dr.'s............maybe that will help you as well, but make sure it is the post nasal drip ones, the other ones have a numbing effect to them and I had a reaction to it, you may not..............hope this helps.............

I am 14 yr. old female. I have stomach aches only at night. It gets better if I take Pepto Bismole and sleep in the recliner. It has been happening more frequently. It started in April 2011 and that's when I had a lot of stress come into my life. I need help with this asap.
I have been having night pain in my right shoulder at the joint. 4 weeks ago I went to see an MD and he perscribed an anti-immflammatory. At the same time he noticed that I had a low grade fever with white spot on my throat and perscribed an antibiotic. I developed gastric problems (diarriha, gas, painful cramps) and even though I have finished all the medications, I still have the shoulder pain and gastric problems.
It also can cause breathing issues. It also tends to get worse at night.
Follow Cathy's good advice. Also, check my website, which is about VCD (Vocal Cord Dysfunction). VCD causes a feeling of "throat closure", and can happen at night, often due to a high up type of gastric reflux, &/or from other causes. Your friend should not take any chances, and he should go to an ER (Emergency Room) or call for an ambulance, in case something life-threatening is happening, such as a severe allergic reaction, &/or something else.
