Coughing blood broken ribs

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing blood broken ribs


645331 tn?1224009865 I have broken ribs from sneezing attacks, and recently coughing. But when they popped, I wasn't doing anything, just leaning on the counter, very strange! Now I have Osteoporosis, so that makes them weaker. They got better quickly, but now worse, almost 5 weeks, popping all the time, from front to side to back. Very annoying, can feel them with my hand, especially when in bed & sitting in car. Will this ever go away?
Avatar n tn ive also had like a charlie horse pain under left rib cage,for two years,last year ..i was coughing up blood,they did lung biopsys..too find nothing, i beleive it was all caused by bronchitis,no longer bleeding but,still have under left rib pain..
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn I am constantly straining muscles from the intense coughing, I've coughed up blood twice. I finally had a CAT scan and it shows that my lungs are fine, except from some harmless scarring from prolonged coughing. Antibiotics have no effect on the cough. I've used Tussionex (codeine cough syrup) for years, but drs. don't like to prescribe it, so I use it when I can't stand it any more to make it last. The cough leaves me so exhausted, and my muscles painful, and it's almost impossible to sleep.
Avatar m tn I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
Avatar n tn I also am having blood in my spit. I've been to an ENT, a gastroentorologist, and my primary care. I've been scoped every which way. No sinus bleeding, no stomach or ulcer bleeding, clean chest xray and semi clean CT scan. The CT scan came back with enlarged nasal walls, which are symptomatic of a person with constant allergies and sinus problems, which is me. The ENT put me on a nasal spray as well, to hopefully reduce that and I'm going for another CT scan in 6 weeks.
Avatar n tn My daughter also has asthma, pectus excavatum, abdominal issues (gastroparesis), and is currently in a lot of pain due to thiese bumps on her chest. I thought maybe she had broken her ribs from coughing so hard, now im just worried its something more serious that the doctors are overlooking. Its overwhelming. I am sad that all of you are in such pain too but somewhat relived to see that she is not alone. Any ideas on what this could be?

I have taken 3 sets of steroids, and rested plenty i'm still sick. I still have a cough thats now producing blood from my throat.

Avatar n tn designations and the specialty of emergency medicine has come into it's own the protocols and outcomes have improved, but many facilities, unfortunately, are still discovering the wheel. Coughing up blood is probably from ribs penetrating the lungs. Broken vertabrae will heal, however is the spinal cord is damaged or transected by movement of the fragments permanant paralysis or quadraplegia may result. Hopefully things will turn out well for the poor fellow.
Avatar f tn You probably need to have a CBC done as well to make sure that your white blood count is not elevated. I hope this helps and hope that you feel better soon. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I was exposed to someone blood of unknown status I have had many symptoms but since January I have had cosochondritis.
Avatar m tn It is felt most closely between a few of my ribs. The pain is not terrible, but constant. It will often radiate to my armpit. I don't have any other symptoms (no coughing or cold or fatigue, no difficulty breathing), except for the anxiety this is causing me. I initially went to the ER as I thought it was heart related. They ran tests like the ekg, chest x-ray, and blood work, and everything was normal.
Avatar f tn I have seen multiple doctors who have all had different opinions, I have been tested for pnemonia, mono, broken ribs, collapsed lung, kindney infection, galbladder disease, blood clots, and all tests have come back fine, so I have been given pain medication and told to just go home... but the pain medication hardly works. I dont understand how I am in so much pain. I best describe the pain as, you know when you have a bad bruise and you press on it, it really hurts...
Avatar n tn Over the next few days I got really sick, and on top of that every time I coughed or laughed I got this stabbing pain in my side right where I got hit. Because my ribs didn't feel broken, i didn't really think much about going to a doctor. But as the week went on, the cough got worse and worse, especially after trying to play again at next weeks game.
Avatar n tn Last winter my wife had terrible cough for 2 months which led to rib pain. The Dr. xrayed and found her with 5 broken ribs!!!! Ouch. It cleared slowly and eventually she got well. (This was during the SARS scare and she was never tested.
Avatar n tn 1) Lots of Burping, 20-25 times a day 2) Pain in my ribs 3) Lots of coughing 4) Difficulty swallowing occasionally 5) Sometimes i get this thing where I need to burp and can swallow the burp. 6) Coughing and then the burp coming out in the cough. The Doctor gave me Omeprazole for this which I've been taking for 5 days and it hasn't been helping. The Doctor told me it's Reflux, but I'm paranoid that it's Stomach or Esophageal Cancer.
Avatar f tn It turns out after thinking he had some broken ribs and possibly a punctured lung (he was coughing up blood), that he'd had a blood clot go from his leg, through his heart, and then went into his lung. He very well could have died. That was just on last night's episode so I don't know the conclusion but I know how dangerous it is and that man was very lucky. BUT, so far, this man has made it. Again, I will keep Tyler in my prayers and keep us all posted.
Avatar f tn Hello, Your symptoms are very similar to mine. I am a healthy, fitness addict, 40-yr old. 4 Weeks ago felt shortness of breath during my workouts, "broken" ribs pain, and violent coughing when working out. Otherwise, felt fine. No fatigue, no other real major symptoms. Doc listened to lungs and visual inspection of throat, nothing. Went and got x-rays and discovered 2/3 of left lung with pneumonia. Wasn't sure whether it was walking version, but was prescribed 875mg/125mg Amoxicillin.
Avatar n tn His greatest efforts and the best cough suppressents have not stopped the coughing. He has broken ribs on both sides from coughing so it is extremely painful to cough. At 37 years of age, he is wanting to get well and return to work and life in general. Because we live in Alaska, we wonder if there are resources from other areas that could help. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn so in September 08 I caught a terrible cold, couldn't stop coughing (I was up every night all night for a few days) thought I had a pneumonia, had an x-ray done, showed nothing. first, pain was so strong that I couldn't really tell where it was hurting, my whole chest was in pain. slowly my cough got better and most of the pain in the chest has gone except it was still hurting alot(bottom of the rib cage on the right)when I was taking a deep breath in.
486843 tn?1208802461 I went to see the Dr the next day and he did a quick examination and sent me to hospital with a suspected broken rib / punctured lung. My chest x-ray was clear and the rib was not broken, they weren't sure what was causing me the pain and sent me home with pain killers and said if it gets worse come back. It has got better but not to the extent where i could train again and it still hurts on sneezing/coughing.
Avatar m tn I took him to the doctor as well as physio thinking he had strained a muscle from the coughing. He started to complain of severe “spine” pain in the lower back and floating ribs, that was somewhat controlled with 6-800mg of Ibuprofen, and when that stopped working the doctor prescribed Volteren cream,, which was pretty effective . Soon after that the pain moved to his knees, chest, hips, groin, arms and ankles. The pain got so severe I started him on a small dose of oral cannabis.
Avatar n tn i was afraid i might have had a collapsed lung, or a broken rib from all the coughing, but even so, it would have healed by now. last month i went in to see my doctor and i was told that my lungs were fine, but i was sent in for a pulmonary test for asthema. my tests came back clean, yet the problem still occurs. i haven't had any other medical problems, nor do i have any allergies. it worries me that this has been going on for so long, but it is more annoying than anything.

Avatar f tn If anyone else gets a cold or cough it's very light and doesn't effect them much but with me I end up losing my voice, coughing up blood, being sick, unable to breath I have also broken 3 ribs since I was 7 just from coughing. My stomache muscles and lower back muscles do not grow properly anymore as I have ripped them so many times and to much.
Avatar m tn Only 1% of the body's magnesium is stored in the blood and only 0.3% in blood serum so clinical blood testing may not pick up a deficiency state. Magnesium deficiency symptoms are numerous but include some of the symptoms you list such as unable to take a deep breath/difficulty breathing/shortness of breath, chest tightness, chronic fatigue, impaired memory, allergies. Low magnesium can aggravate asthma symptoms (vitamin D deficiency worsens asthma severity).
1448748 tn?1312959808 I went into er to evaluate chest pain because I am at a high risk for developing blood clots and wanted to make sure it was not a blood clot in the lung. everything was fine, they just said I have costochondritis... any experience with this?
228686 tn?1211558307 His hand was slick with blood. The knife he’d taken from the madman’s belt was broken off jaggedly mid blade. The sergeant stared at him as if he was a revenant arisen. “You are Tully, aren’t you.” “All I want is food and water.” The sergeant looked warily at the bloody broken knife. Then stepped over to the mule and began unbuckling a saddlebag. “I remember a lot of things about General Tully. That he was a great warrior. A survivor.
