Chronic laryngitis symptoms larynx

Common Questions and Answers about Chronic laryngitis symptoms larynx


Avatar f tn I tend to get a minor cold three or four times a year. About three or four days later I will develop bronchitis, followed by a laryngitis and perhaps a minor sore throat. I will have coughing spasms in which I gag and cough for several minutes, at times spitting up yellow mucus. Incontinence is common during these coughing spells. I have no trouble breathing; I am a non-smoker. But the major symptom is extreme fatigue.

396332 tn?1320007215 What Are the Symptoms of GERD? Chronic acid reflux leads to uncomplicated GERD, but not everyone with GERD has heartburn. The primary symptoms of GERD are heartburn, regurgitation, and nausea. Heartburn usually is described as a burning pain in the middle of the chest. It may start high in the abdomen or may extend up into the neck. Sometimes the pain may be sharp or pressure-like, rather than burning. Such pain can mimic heart pain (angina).
Avatar f tn Increased, infected mucous can act as an irritant to your larynx and cause laryngitis. There are many reasons for recurrent infection including, but not limited to, chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, a foreign body, cystic fibrosis, a tumor partially blocking your airways, recurrent exposure to an irritant, etc. You are right to be concerned because any infection could suddenly get much worse. You should ask your doctor if you need to see a pulmonary specialist.
Avatar n tn It has been over a year and I still have lung and bronchi irritation, chronic sore throats, and pain or hoarsness when I speak. I took last year off of teaching because I couldn't have a conversation without losing my voice. I started my new teaching job this week and I find my self afraid to speak. The thing is, I wake up feeling fine.
Avatar m tn In answer to your three posts above: 1. Mesothelioma is extremely rare and a one time exposure is very unlikely to result in a mesothelioma. But, you must remember that there is not a "safe" level of asbestos exposure. 2. Your symptoms of productive cough and laryngitis (hoarse voice) might be (and might not be) related to the dust exposure that occurred several months ago.
Avatar n tn It is felt that the acid refluxed up the esophagus can actually reach the area of the voice box (larynx) and cause inflammation. Several studies have shown a relationship between chronic gastroesophageal reflux and the subsequent development of laryngeal cancer. Treatment with strong acid suppressing medication such as omeperazole (Prilosec) or lansoprazole (Prevacid) may help prevent these problems. I hope you find this information helpful.
Avatar f tn Ok, I have been sick for about 6 weeks now - off and on with flu like symptoms, going to bronchitis a couple of times (I have had chronic bronchitis for about 5 years). I have been through 3 rounds of antibiotics, have tripled my dosage of Advair to 500mg twice daily from 250 mg once - I am taking Combivent inhalers every 4 hours, I have recently been given a massive cough medicine to make me stop coughing (isn't working) - which is the second kind of cough medicine, Singulair...

Avatar n tn Untreated, GERD can lead to chronic laryngitis, dysphonia, chronic sore throat, chronic cough, constant throat clearing, granuloma of the true vocal cords and other problems. (Am Fam Physician 1999;60:873-86.) ..............
572651 tn?1333939396 FYI Norovirus causes gastrointestinal symptoms. It isn't influenza. Flu always causes respiratory symptoms. Rhinovirus causes colds. It isn't influenza either. Antibiotics fight infections (caused by bacteria). They do nothing against viruses. They are sometimes ordered to prevent superimposed bacterial infections if that is important for a specific reason.
Avatar m tn Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good. None of them seem to relate to the closure of the windpipe and cant give me a straight answer when I ask them. Has anyone an answer or better still has anyone else had this problem.
Avatar m tn Continual throat clearing Chronic throat irritation Chronic cough Hoarseness Excessive phlegm the throat Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) Constant sensation of something in the throat Swallowed food comes back up Post nasal drainage Weak voice Cracking voice Blockage of the breathing passage Spasm of the larynx (voice box) Wheezing Heartburn( not all experience this ) This condition is a result of both UES and LES not working correctly.
Avatar m tn Both ENT's said they thought it was acid reflux and so I have been on Prilosec for 3 weeks now(also called omeprazole-20 mg) and yet no change yet(I have had hardly any symptoms of acid reflux, but just recently have had little burps of gas come up from time to time but very infrequent). Is there anything you can take just to get the thick mucus in your vocal chords dissolved so you can speak. I am a professional actor and am desperate.
3097131 tn?1357088481 If acid reflux gets past the upper esophageal sphincter, it can enter the throat (pharynx) and even the voice box (larynx), causing hoarseness or sore throat. Laryngitis Nausea Sore throat Chronic dry cough, especially at night. GERD is a common cause of unexplained coughing. It is not clear how cough is caused or aggravated by GERD. Asthma. Refluxed acid can worsen asthma by irritating the airways. And asthma and the medications used to treat it can make GERD worse.
Avatar n tn I am a smoker and drink a decent amount of soft drinks, which causes my throat to be a little dryer. I don't have any symptoms that lead me to believe this is serious such as, actual sore throat, fever, headach, or swelling anywhere else. I know any difficulty swallowing is concidered serious, but it only gets so bad, which doesn't impare my breathing, drinking, or eating. It is more annoying then anything. It is hard for me to go to sleep when it is swollen/tense.

Avatar n tn I have had the same problem all my life. I was finally diagnosed with vocal cord dysfunction. Basically I have a "twitchy" larynx. Drinking, eating, and post nasal drainage are things that most commonly trigger my attacks. Often it starts as a tickle in the throat and progresses to the point where I can't breathe or speak at all. Very scary.
Avatar m tn 9 , norm range 10-19 Im losing weight, my food goes straight through me, i have all the hyper symptoms except bulging eyes and goiter. I believe i have suffered with a vit D problem for years, as i have bad knees, i have never been to the doctors about them until recently, but i believe the vit D has given me arthritis in my knees, im seeing a specialist in a month about my knees. But i also believe if you have a Vit D problem for a while it can cause you to develop a thyroid problem?
Avatar n tn I have been told I have something called reflux now for the last 5 years I have been having intense chest pains accompanied with a feeling of panic everytime this happens I feel I am having a heart attack so I rush my self to the emregency room in a panic the first time I even called 911 and they took me by ambulance. what I want to know is, is this normal?
Avatar f tn do you get larynx spasms? what do they feel like. I have been strange tightening sensations in this area and not sure what is going on. My doc just thinks it is allergies but I think it is a spasm or some sort?
Avatar f tn Two of the most common causes of the mucus buildup are chronic sinus infections with postnasal drip, and acid reflux from the stomach. If you have a sinus infection, especially a fungal one, and it doesn't respond to antibiotics or regular saline irrigation, then I recommend the Flip-Turn Sinus Flush, which gets saline into the upper sinuses and washes out all infections. It's risky, because you have to bend over in a shower, but it can also be done outside on soft ground. http://www.medhelp.
Avatar n tn Yesterday my doctor suggested I might have Laryngeal Spasms, and while I wait 2 months for the Throat specialist to get my appointment, she suggested I look online. But my symptoms don't seem to match all of voice problems or 'breathing' problems. I just get these violent coughing attacks that literally feel and behave as if I inhaled a bread crumb, and my body suddenly and violently is trying to cough it up.
Avatar n tn I too have the same symptoms. A sharp pain in the front of my neck/throat, but no apparent lumps. I only notice the pain when I swallow hard or sneeze. Some days it is worse than others. Some days I have no pain at all. I'm not sure what triggers it but it seems to get worse after I've drank alcohol. But there are also times that I haven't had any alcohol and it still comes back. I have been to an ENT three times now for this and he cannot find any thing.
436516 tn?1382388265 At first while I was on meds during my recovery from the surgery the symptoms stopped. But after I stopped taking the pain killers anti-biotic and the steroids the tickle came back. I've been taking Previcid for acid reflux but this has not stopped the attacks. Does anyone have any current information on this? This discussion is related to <a href=''>Tickle in throat makes me cough and choke</a>.
Avatar n tn I have been having the same symptoms. I am a 59 year old African American male. This started about 5years ago and is still going on, intermittenly. And as with you my doctor do not seem to be concern. Still looking for some answers. Someone once told me that they was told by their doctor that it was from a muscle strain. I don't know. I was lifting weights when it started though. But I need a professional diagnosis.
