Common Questions and Answers about What does a chest cold feel like


Avatar_n_tn Hi all, I am new to all of this and based on my readings here, I am not sure an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> I am feeling is actually <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> PVC or not. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> do they actually feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> to you? <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> I feel and it doesn't happen to often is almost like a flutter in my chest that last for just a moment. Maybe not even a flutter, more like the feeling of a stomach turning over, but higher up in my chest. No pounding or anything else. It seems to happen as I breath out and happen most after I eat.
Avatar_n_tn today my cough is bad and it seems like when I cough or take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> deep breath I feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> sensation in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> area..not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> big beat or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> skip..(I have had these in the past..had two ekgs and the docs say don't worry oh and I do have anxiety) just a sensation, a fleeting feeling. I have some chest conjestion and alittle short of breath but thats it. I can hear the conjestion..should I be worried and go see the doctor? Thanks in advanced.
Avatar_f_tn My go to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> remedy is always this: Black tea (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> Lipton) as not as you can stand <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> teaspoon on Cayenne pepper a tablespoon of honey (raw if possible) and fresh lemon juice with the rind threw in If you can drink 2 or 3 coffee cups a day it will knock it out in no time. This is coming from someone who hasn't had a flu shot or taken any cold medicine for over 10 years. Best of luck.
Avatar_f_tn I am starting to think maybe I should get off of Singulair because lately I have had <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> feels <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> an infection and my ear canals feel irritated with major sinus headaches all the time. Symbicort I think is causing throat issues. I have yet to catch another cold since the first one which gave me asthma. I really hope it clears up fast and don't end up completely out of breath like I was last time. Infections are more common for asthmatics because the medications weaken the immune system.
Avatar_f_tn all day I have had this cold feeling in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> and back. It feels <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> I have rub vicks on me. It does not hurt just that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> burn in my chest it is between my boobs up to my neck and back. It feel like it is on the out side not a pain I think.
Avatar_n_tn My aF is rapid- in the class of SVT, upwards of 250 bpm, then as low as 50 bpm. That is <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> aFib does- very erratic beat. Mine feels <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> rapidly quivering, totally out of sync heartbeat. It is not pounding like when I have just the SVT, but rather, almost a light, distant feel to it. It makes me feel very light-headed and very cold all over.
Avatar_f_tn I get predominantly PVC's, but I also experience PaC's as well. My PVC's feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> right in the center of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> just below the sternum. They are quite noticeable, and there's no mistake when they occur. I also may experience an occasional PaC. These sometimes occur during heavy physical output, and was confirmed during a stress test. When I pointed out to my cardiologist who was administering the test that I was felt a light PVC, he informed me that I was throwing an occasional PaC.
178590_tn?1294180367 I haven't had time to get away from the computer but I will try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> rag.....It not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> fun feeling it feels <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> just ran <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> mile and I'm gonna hyper ventalate....I've not had many bad spells in the past 3 weeks and was hoping I was getting over them but I've had 1 other bad one and a cold shower was the only thing that helped...
Avatar_n_tn "an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> does it feel like to have a fatal heart attack?" Maybe I'm thinking along the wrong tracks here? Can anyone who has a 'fatal' heart attack describe how it felt?
Avatar_f_tn The only way I can describe it is as if it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> outside and you feel an aching feeling when breathing deeply. It feels <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> straining in my chest and throat. I occasionally feel as if I cannot get a breathe, only for a few seconds, as if I can breathe in but the air has nowhere to go. along with the aching of my chest, I occasionally have an ache under each of my armpits but do not feel anything swollen.
Avatar_f_tn Kind of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> trying to explain how my feet now feel ice <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> and pain and numb at the same time. Maybe that's why they have a hard time beleiving me. I did periodically get this weird zapping kind of pain that went from my elbow down to my hand ,that if it had lasted more than a split second at a time, could have been excruciating. and that did last for weeks.
Avatar_m_tn after 5 months, alot of blood work, and hard work by my doctor the only thing that has turned up is an active thyroid. Hypothyroidism is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> we "think" is the concern. It has been checked 3 times, and twice it was off. My doctor proscribed some medicine(Levothyroxine, lowest dose possible for now- .25 or 25) for 2 months. In 6 weeks we'll do blood work again and see if I still have the inner cold feeling.
562884_tn?1279635934 Poor DH doesnt know <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> hit him. I feel bad and apoligize and then he does something to set me off again! My back is killing me too and my inlaws are coming this weekend so I have been trying to get things ready for them and I feel like ****. I just want to sit and be cranky. I guess this is our welcome to the 3rd trimester??
Avatar_f_tn I'm waking up in the middle of the night with coughing attacks that last anywhere from half an hour to hours. I feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> I'm going to die, but from <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> I've read, this seems to be pretty common lately. Without my inhaler, I would be in serious trouble, it seems the only thing that helps. I really don't want to go back to the Dr. I feel like I'm just wasting time and money. Does anyone have any advice on this? I'm really getting depressed, it's embarasing and my back is killing me!
Avatar_f_tn I have not "officially" been diagnosed yet but I have a question. Does anyone ever feel like food is getting stuck in their throat when they eat? This is a problem I've been having and it started the same time as all my other symptoms. My PCP thought that part might be my thyroid as I have had a goiter before. But my bloodwork and thyroid ultrasound were fine. She is now wndering if it might be the MS.
Avatar_m_tn You are doing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> phenomenal job...I know it doesn't feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> it at the moment, but you sure are! The thing that helped me most with the RLS/cramps is a magnesium citrate supplement called Natural Calm. I found it at my natural food store, but it can be ordered online. I also use it in place of Xanax when I have had a stressful day or feel anxious. Just follow directions and start with a low amount otherwise you can have tummy problems.
Avatar_f_tn I just wanted to find out you know when you get the dizzy spells, is it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> the rooms sways back and forth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> bit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> being on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> boat or is it more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> the world turns upside down, inside out and you just can't stand upright? I ask because ive been suffering dizziness for the past month now that hits me like a bolt out of the blue and sends everything inside out, upside down, it lasts for several sec's an i have to grab the nearest stable object to stop myself from falling flat on my bum.
Avatar_m_tn about 4 years ago, I was at work, having a moderate to busy day and got a feeling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> was being crushed. Became dizzy, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> sweats, nausea, felt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> I was going to pass out. I had to leave work and went to my doctor. He took my BP, normal, he checked me heart rate, normal, he gave me a blood test and an ECG, all normal. He told me about panic attacks, I told him I had never had one before and was scared someting was wrong with my heart.
754522_tn?1328823419 The one reason I think of MS, is because the only doctor who has been there when I had a convulsion attack told me it looked to him <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> MS. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> year ago, age 21, I experienced small spasms throughout my whole body which developed into jerks and then full on body convulsions within a few days. I was taken to the hospital and given many tests from blood tests, CaT scan, MRI, an EEG (during an attack), all came back negative. I was a healthy female, no traumas or accidents to the head.
Avatar_n_tn I've searched on-line and I can't seem to find anything about colding cold items triggering angina. Have you ever heard of such <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> thing? any other ideas of <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> this might be? I'd feel pretty rediculous to go to a cardiolist about this, especially since I'm only 36. Thank you for your time!
Avatar_f_tn Hello, I have had this problem off and on for 2 years where I feel a cold sensation in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> and I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> sore throat. It feels <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> I am breathing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> air. It is not related to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> virus becuase it comes and goes. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> could this be?
