1410020 tn?1322299265 You know, I like my present doctor but sometimes some doctors are in a hurry or have things going on in their lives too, so they might miss something or think of the complicated. I had a cold 2 yrs ago that went on and got worse, coughing worse. I went in, got antibiotics, worked, after they were gone, it came back. Did this x3. Last time then PA told me I had COPD. I couldn't walk the walkway w/o stopping to gasp. She measured my oxy.

Avatar f tn Exposure to air while driving causes a continuous clearing of throat and mucus. Last week it seems to be getting worst as i find myself coughing for no reason, pain in my throat, vomiting and shortness of breath some times with a bout of hot flash.. I now have to travel with a bottle of water. Everything does not subside until i clear my throat fully of mucus. During this time, i cannot speak until i clear my throat.
Avatar m tn I've had the same problem, and found out that I pulled the small muscles in between my ribs. I was ill with bronchitis and the continuous coughing and struggling to breathe (because I'm asthmatic too) had caused this to happen. Coughing a lot is a common cause of rib pain. Unless you've fallen and hurt yourself.
Avatar f tn At the beginning of the month I got the upper respiratory virus that was going around so did the kids. all three of the kids stopped the coughing withing a week (so did the co-workers) I have asthma but I cannot get rid of the productive cough.
Avatar f tn Does HPV cause coughing.
Avatar n tn Hi - Have you changed his pillow? I have to change my pillow every 4-6 months, or the dust that builds up gives me bad headaches, watery eyes and congestion. I buy hypo-allergenic pillows (which are just a few dollars more than the regular ones), and allergy covers for them (which can be washed). Don't forget to wash any stuffed animals regularly, too, as well as change the filters in the air conditioner and dust his room. Allergy testing is a good idea, too. I hope he feels better!
Avatar n tn 00 pm now on the same day and she is still coughing non stop but added to that she is having soreness to touch in her neck, front and back, her upper chest and even her arm pits. She said that it almost feels like someone is choking her although she is not having problems swallowing. This is a new symptom that started about a half hour ago. My question are: Can this new symptom be from the medication she took almost 12 hrs ago? Do you have any idea what this can be?
Avatar f tn My doctor stated there was a mild decrease in flow in the back but not in the front. He stated he wanted to refer me to a headache specialist to rule out anything else, although my headaches spund like chiari. He said Chiari is not black and white that he operated on an 18 year old with a much larger herniation but no headaches. I will get the actual report but this is where I stand now. I asked him if my wreck and whiplash casused me to become symptomatic.
Avatar n tn You should definitely see a doctor. Even with a severe cough, it would be very rare to see any blood. You should let your parents know about this if you haven't already. I'm not sure where you live, but tuberculosis is still possible to catch in school in some parts of the country, and is likely if you have also had a fever. Best to get checked out as soon as possible.
Avatar m tn Bongo started having continuous coughing fits about 12 days ago. Coughing seams to be with every breath. It is kind of a low tone soft cough. Coughing get worse/ louder when he is active or excited. It seams to be a non productive cough although he does lick his lips or does like a hard swallow after he stops the coughing. He will stop the coughing almost immediately when I hug him, pet him or talk to him. As soon as I stop the interaction he will start the breathy coughs again.
Avatar m tn I have a 4 year old daughter who has been coughing for 3 to 4 months. She wakes up most nights coughing. It sounds like she has a lot of mucus in her throat. She will cough continuously for more than an hour at a time. She coughs when she wakes up, when she runs around, goes out into the cold air. In addition to this, she is pale and has dark circles under her eyes.
Avatar n tn I suggest that you discuss this with his doctors and see if it could be arranged to have his oxygen level documented when he is at rest, asleep when walking and during a coughing spell. The combination of cough and changes in blood pressure can also result in abnormal heart rhythms. This could be revealed by the use of a continuous heart monitoring device. It might also be wise to check his blood pressure.

Avatar m tn I had unprotected vaginal and anal sex with a women whose hiv status I don't know. 6 weeks after the exposure I started having severe and persistent cough, a sore throat and difficulty breathing. I get bouts of continuous coughing, I don't think I had any fever in the past 5 days since I started experiencing the symptoms, but I never checked my temperature so i'm not sure. Can these symptoms be related to ars syndrome? Can we have symptoms after 6 weeks of exposure (45 days).
Avatar n tn does it mean ur not in a safe mode when u start coughing just every few seconds ands it is the sound of fluid do i need to go to the er and let them get some fluid off
Avatar f tn My chest x ray is normal but the doctor could not do a pft because of my continuous cough at that time. My blood work for pneumonia diabetes and cholesterol are all good. sinus CT scan is normal too. Is this viral is it okay to take several months for cough to go away. I have no wheezing or asthma history. could this be lung infection? Please help.
Avatar n tn I have had pneumonia and bronchitis when I was younger and can definitely say that I do not experience fluid in my lungs. I also am NOT coughing. Any thoughts? The pain is very uncomfortable and hinders my ability to bend over.
Avatar m tn Coughing can be a complication of sinus inflammation that causes post nasal drainage or a lower airway reflex, both of which cause coughing. A very common cause of coughing if when the upper airway infection triggers lower airways reactivity, such as with asthma. In most cases in a 3 year old, physicians will try a trial course of upper airway treatment (antihistamines and possibly antibiotics, if sinusitis is suspected) to if this controls the cough.
Avatar f tn For the past several weeks I have had what seems to be a constant over-production of mucus draining in my throat. It's like I have to clear my throat every few minutes -- VERY ANNOYING!! Now my throat is getting sore from all the clearing and I'm waking up at night coughing from that 'tickling' sensation in the back of my throat.
