Chest congestion laryngitis

Common Questions and Answers about Chest congestion laryngitis


Avatar m tn Unlike the colds of the past, where the symptoms almost always would be a massive sore throat that would last for a couple of days, followed by nasal congestion, post nasal drip, yellow and green mucus drainage, and that incessant cough, this year has seen all the above along with chest congestion. It's hard to sleep at night, because the chest congestion builds up and I have to get up and cough my head off to get all the congestion out.
Avatar n tn all day sat couging up green stuff out of chest and sinusis chest now feels raw but the stuff is easy to get out no problems breathing or wheezing just get a bit out of breath my ears keep popping right on my ear drum. i am on my last antibiodic today is there any thing else i can do.
Avatar n tn Recently I was diagnosed with a chest infection, which has now cleared. Now I have what I assume may be a sinus related problem. When I awake most mornings I have a slight nasal congestion, which slowly clears. I also snore. The main problem is that I have this constant mucous which I cannot clear. It feels as if it is deep inside my head somewhere.
Avatar n tn Sometimes it starts with a sore throat and other times my nose will just start to drip. It results in prolific green mucous coming from my nose and chest that lasts for several days and sometimes laryngitis. My doctors always assume I'm a smoker (I'm not). It takes about two weeks to start to feel good again, only to have the symptoms reappear and the cycle starts all over again. This has been ongoing for the past 4 years.
Avatar n tn I have had Bronchitis and laryngitis 5 times since October of last year. Last month the doctor gave me Leviquor.The first and only RX I have taken. I again came down with number five. I have a very sore throat, cough little or no voice, and no projection. Stuffy nose and breathing is hard at times. My question is "Could this be something serious? I have never been so sick. What would you suggest I do?
Avatar n tn I don't have a fever, but I have a horrible earache, very sore throat and horrible nasal congestion. I have been vomiting mucous and all the pain seems to be centralized to the right side of my body (i.e., my right ear hurts, the right side of my throat hurts). I have laryngitis along with the other symptoms, so my doctor says that she believes the illness to be viral and that she can only treat the symptoms. Well, I am absolutely miserable.
Avatar f tn My symptoms initially began as a cold with chest congestion, extreme throat pain, fatigue, and a fever for the first two days. Almost all of those symptoms went away within one week and now I'm left with the sore throat. I also have post nasal drip so I'm wondering if this is causing the pain. The pain seems to get worse in the evening or in cold temperatures. It hurts to talk also. No one that has been around me has gotten a sore throat so it makes me feel like it is not strep throat.
3120463 tn?1342060417 It started out as a scratchy/sore throat, then turned into me almost losing my voice (laryngitis), then back to a sore throat, and now it's a hacking cough with mucus in my throat and a little sinus congestion. Would you recommend I see a doctor? It's showing no signs of letting up and I am unable to hear out of my left ear from the congestion.
Avatar m tn I seem to have a recurring sinus, laryngitis, lower respiratory infection going on since November. In Nov., after 12 days of a cold and the green mucus from my lungs and nose worsening my Dr. prescribed a 5 day course of Augmentin. It cleared up the green quickly but I was left with a lingering dry cough/asthma symptoms and nasal congestion that never resolved. Dec.
Avatar m tn 2 weeks I had Hi fever for 3 days, 1 cold sore, followed by 10-day fatigue, then after 5 days chest congestion followed by 2-day severe laryngitis On Dec1- in Ger diff CSWs: I was bit feverish while having laryngitis I had another set of 4 protected vag, 3 protected BJs, & 1 unprotected BJ (the last one). No condom break.
Avatar n tn ) I also have the pressure/lump feeling in my throat along with pain in my upper back at the same level of my back as the chest pain. I don't have discomfort at night. I've tried tums and pepto, they only help for about 5 minutes. I've never even had heartburn before, except in the last month of pregnancy. My questions are: Does this sound like GERD? Can GERD cause one's upper back to hurt too?
Avatar m tn For the past three months, I have had chest and sinus congestion, manifesting itself in hacking/coughing, wheezing, and expectorating thick yellow (various shades) mucus. I "sound" like I have a cold, but I don't. No other symptons have been present. Two regimens of antibiotics have proven to be ineffective. I am using daily the generic equivalent of Flonase, am also taking an antihistamine, Advair, and doing nasal irrigation with a neti pot.
Avatar f tn It is useful for treating respiratory problems including chest congestion, bronchitis, bronchial cough and sinusitis, as well as sore throat and laryngitis. Likewise, eucalyptus is a natural antibacterial agent. A small handful of whole leaves or a small amount of the essential oils in boiling water is effective for twice-daily steam inhalations. You can apply rubs as needed to the chest and throat or - cautiously - around nostrils to ease congestion.
Avatar f tn asthma, chest congestion, epistaxis, hyperventilation, laryngismus, laryngitis, pneumonia, voice alteration; Its hard to guess, but one thing I would suggest is calling your pharmacy and asking for one of their trained professionals to look at your medicine records and make sure there isnt the possibliity that the medicines your now taking couldnt singularly or in combination, cause your immune system to be supressed.
Avatar n tn She has been on prolonged antibiotic therapy over 10 times with shorter doses in between that did not help, she has been seen and diagnosed with sinus infections 15+ times, each one worse with increased coughing and chest congestion and each one taking longer to recover from with only about 6 days of complete wellness in between. She has been to an ENT and has had her adenoids removed, she was sick with a sinus infection within two weeks. She has had several sinus CTs done and chest films.
372416 tn?1242669352 I hear ya, I had chest congestion for a while and I started taking beespollen,flaxseed and garlic, vit B1, and B12, I take so many I think I rattle when I walk BUT no more chest congestion lol I was scared for a while but I feel great now 2 and a half months after quitting the pills. I have some no energy days, but I think that is depression, but I pick myself up and get over it. I hope you feel better soon!
Avatar n tn This helped right away and the congestion and cough went away. Thus, when the congestion lingered this time (thick yellow mucos when I blowed my nose), I called my family doctor to get a prescription for nasonex. This helped my nose but I then got a persistent tickly cough that was worse at night. Now a month and a half later, the cough and tickles occur all the time. It's mostly dry, but sometimes in the morning it has phlem.
Avatar f tn After the plumber removed the block from the main drain, she cleaned and, within a week, developed upper-respirtory issues. Symptoms were severe chest congestion (clear mucus), laryngitis, occasional headache and difficulty breathing. Her doctor said she had no fever so it must be a cold.(Yes, she is a smoker and he also blew off the mold and water she was exposed to as the issue because of that).
Avatar f tn 3 weeks ago my family returned from vacation, my husband, daughter and I ended up on z-pack for Laryngitis, sore throat and chest congestion. My son was treated for strep throat(his rapid strep test was negative but he had pus on his tonsils, fever, and very bad sore throat). I also had twinges of nausea. About a week later I got up to go to work(I am an RN) and although I was OK the day before I was very dizzy, short of breath and hypotensive. I stayed home the next day as well.
Avatar m tn I also had severe stomach acid which came under control once my thyroid was adequately medicated. Seven years later however, and the Nasal Congestion and Dry Throat still exist. It also takes me a long time to get over colds and flu that always shift to my chest leaving me coughing regularly. The doctor blames all my issues on either Sinusitis, or Post Nasal Drip.
Avatar m tn ] I am going back a year to figure out what caused my Reflux laryngitis. Must have something to do with “congestion” since a decongestant stopped the burning and belching. Abraham Maslow developed a Model of our Hierarchy of Needs and number 1 is: Biological and Physiological needs - air, food, drink, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep, etc. SLEEP is really high on my list and about a year ago I discovered Benadryl, an Allergy and Cold medication, helped me sleep.

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 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.
392548 tn?1216614379 Tonight, I felt it in my chest and my left shoulder as well. I was coughing uncontrollably and my chest was tightening. I used my emergency inhaler, and voila'...its subsided. I had NO idea that asthma and this deep itchy feeling was related until I just went looking. Thanks guys!!
Avatar f tn The dr has changed my Bp medicine twice, both times waiting 3+ weeks, then it was antibiotics, then asthma, then allergies, then musenex and chest xrays, bloodwork and others... Has tried numerous cough medicines to help me sleep, which did nothing. This cough is unrelenting and is driving me crazy.I am always tired anymore and I feel like I am getting worse. Please if you have had this problem or know a suggestion let me know I am willing to do anything at this point.
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.
Avatar m tn Seems like I am having trouble swallowing, the congestion is getting worse and know it seems like I cannot clear my throat. I was told that I should have a cough but I do not and the mucus is clear. Shortness of breath. Or the panic/anxiety is taking over.
553113 tn?1236180811 That is what made it hard for me to figure out what was from the surgery and what was from being sick.....I had a lot of chest congestion which I believe was not related to the surgery. They said that a sore throat is to be expected due to the tube as well as just the fact that they are manipulating the muscles in the neck when they do the surgery. The sore throat was the worst part for me.....the neck just feels like sore muscles and really isn't that bad.
