Chest congestion hoarseness

Common Questions and Answers about Chest congestion hoarseness


Avatar n tn This cough was so violent it would wake me up in the middle of the night, make me feel breathless, and cause deep pains in my chest and ribs. I also experienced constant hoarseness. Finally, when I recovered after taking prescription strength cough medicine, I noticed after some time that, as a singer, I was getting hoarse. It then progressed to the speaking voice. I saw an ENT twice and there are no vocal nodules or even a trace of pre-vocal nodules.
Avatar n tn It could be any number of things including chest congestion, reflux, muscle spasm/strain, or as you suggest stress. Of course, one of the things you want to rule out is any degree of coronary heart disease. I assume you spoke to your doctor about this and at least had an EKG? Some of us, including myself, were told to have a cardiac stress test prior to treatment because of the added stress the tx drugs put on the heart. Maybe something else to discuss with your doctor.
Avatar n tn For the past four years, I've experienced a strange rubbing sound/sensation in my lower throat/upper chest area. It occurs only whenever I twist my torso from side to side, such as when exercising, or quickly turning to the side via pivoting at the waist. It feels & sounds like something is causing friction. I cannot pinpoint where it is coming from, but it seems to be my lower throat/upper chest, somewhere around collarbone level. It seems to be located within the windpipe or esophagus.

Avatar m tn Gross as it sounds, you'll be relieving the gas congestion in your chest, and the relief will be almost immediate. The embarrassment of being somewhat ill-mannered by necessity shouldn't override removing the gas, and the pain, out of your system. Homeopathic Remedy This remedy has been around for a long time. Add a few drops of peppermint, ginger, or cinnamon extract to a glass of water, and drink it.
Avatar m tn She has been given several anti-biotics and nothing has worked to clear up her chest congestion and mainly the hoarse and irritated vocal chords. Do you think one of the meds. can be causing this? Is she on too many meds?

I had hoarseness, chest congestion, head congestion, runny nose, cough, and sore throat. I started to improve and was released from hospital (no sore throat, head congestion or runny nose and cough improved) but after a week was back to bronchitis (not quite as severe). Was given antibiotic injections at the doctor's office each day for three days.

Avatar n tn And the symptoms you describe don't sound much like HIV anyway, which does not cause nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, conjunctivitis, or hoarseness. You had a garden variety respiratory virus, or maybe influenza. So the answers are: 1) No, your fears of HIV are not warranted. 2) No, your symptoms don't suggest ARS. 3) Go to a mirror, look yourself in the eye, and say out loud 'I do not have HIV.' Do it 10 times. Then if you still are nervous, have an HIV test.
Avatar n tn Which also causes me to feel bronchial irritation/congestion a tightness in center chest and upper back discomfort as well. Sometimes its worse than others. Other times it goes away comletely for weks and months. I can't blow my nose since the dripping occurs from the back of nasal/ear passages into my throat then down into my esoughogus and swallowed. I also do not ever expell phlem, or mucus if and when I cough. However I do belch alot even after drinking just water when I have this going on.
Avatar dr m tn Every time you get a cold, notice how it usually starts in the throat with a tickle, a scratch, or a slight cough. It then progresses into chest congestion or travels up into the ears and the sinuses. You’ll have a low grade fever, mild chills, and a runny nose. Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right?
Avatar f tn Only symptoms I've experienced so far which may or may not related is hoarseness for 6 weeks but may be due to nasal congestion which won't go away. Since birth of my son 18 months ago, SVT's during pregnancy and after birth, rapid heart rate for over a year now. Fatigue and unexplained weight gain. Occasional left chest pain. Left ear has also whooshing heart beat sound for past year. I've read if you have had 2 or more children in the past 5 years the risk is increased.
Avatar n tn Common symptoms include a chronic cough, chronic throat clearing, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, throat tightness, "difficulty getting air in," hoarseness and wheezing. Many people with VCD have problems with postnasal drip from chronic nasal and/or sinus congestion or gastroesophageal reflux disease. It appears that these two conditions can lead to chronic irritation of the throat leading to vocal cords being hypersensitive to irritant stimuli.

Avatar n tn This summer though I have still struggled some with it and I also have periodic hoarseness which comes along with it. Last winter, I was diagnosed with very mild asthma. However, the std asthma meds did not help. The only things that seemed to bring me out of what was a constant cough last winter were a 20-day course of prednisone (started at 20 mg) and warmer weather. I have fought sinus problems for many yrs.
Avatar dr m tn If you wake up every morning needing to hack up lots of thick mucous, or have throat pain, hoarseness, or a chronic cough, you’re not alone. You may think it’s the beginning of a cold, but a cold doesn’t continue for weeks to months without progressing into the full-blown viral symptoms. Instead, these symptoms are the beginnings of the most common throat problem sleep apnea sufferers face.
Avatar n tn I noted bad fatigue, frequent hoarseness and swallowing problem (allergy pills sit in my throat after taking them with multi glasses of water, only food pushes them far enough so they go down). 2nd appt endo: US guided FNA on 4/30. On 5/7, left neck lymph nodes (same side-nodule) swelled. Got to see endo PA 5/8, fluid behind ears and est. sinus infection, so Rx'd azithromycin + benign!.

Avatar n tn I have a cough and congestion in my head which sometimes moves into my chest. I am an ex-smoker. I have not had any problem swallowing or anything like that. Occaisonally I have limited hoarseness which goes away after I clear my throat. Sometimes I can push hard with a finger on my throat and feel a tender spot. Is this serious? What does it sound like.

Avatar dr m tn And hypopnea is restricted breathing with greater than 30% chest wall movement decrease and blood oxygen drop of more than 4% for 10 seconds or more. A pretty complicated definition! The total combinations of apneas and hypopneas for the entire night divided by the total number of hours one sleeps gives us the apnea/hypopnea index or the AHI. This is the most commonly used measure to diagnose sleep apnea.
Avatar f tn The first physical signs of Lyme infection are often flu-like symptoms – sore throat, headaches, congestion, stiffness, etc. – so many people, including doctors, dismiss the symptoms as the flu. During its nymph stage, a tick is only about the size of a period on a sentence. Many people are infected by nymph ticks, but don’t suspect Lyme disease because they don’t recall being bitten. In fact, 50% of people infected don’t remember being bitten.
Avatar n tn Now I also feel like I have a chronic chest congestion. There is a sharp pain from my chest up into my right ear. No one seems to know what is going on. It's ruining my life. My doctor said to be glad I don't have anything worse (meaning fatal).
Avatar n tn Coughing, phlegm, sneezing, head congestion, now my left ear is losing it, eyes turning read and itching, chest tightness, hoarseness..the symptoms are endless it seems. I was diagnosed with allergies to southern pollen. Well, i moved out of the south and the symptoms have gotten worse. I dont buy the allergy thing. I've never had a history of allergies or getting sick. But this is frustrating me. CAT scans and X rays have shown nothing. And I keep getting Claritin from the doctor.
Avatar n tn The acid can cause throat irritation, postnasal drip and hoarseness, as well as recurrent cough, chest congestion and lung inflammation leading to asthma and/or bronchitis/ pneumonia." (U.S. National Institutes of Health - Link> ) Many GERD patients report discomfort in their chest when they lay flat and many thought it was heart-related until they were evaluated and GERD was found. Just wanted to share this and thank you again!
Avatar m tn They are both expectorants. This thinned the mucus and clear my throat, chest and lungs. At first I felt like a train had hit me, because my body was so used to the mucus and bacteria being there. However, I could tell that it was working because the mucus was thick and dark yellow that was coming up. (Sorry to be so graphic) Moreover, I was able to take deep breathes and hold my notes. After the two weeks, I then would alternate the use of both medicines until I was totally clear.

Avatar f tn My primary doctor said I probably have a virus and that it would go away. Now, eight weeks later, I've developed THROAT CONGESTION over-night to the point of losing my voice to intermittent hoarseness and whispers, yet with no aching cheeks and little-to-no nasal congestion, although I have a history of getting sinusitis pretty much every year of my life. I also had CHILLS for two days straight but no detectable fever.
