Common Questions and Answers about Coughing blood reflux

coughing

Avatar m tn I would recommend you discus acid reflux with your doctor. There is a type of acid reflux (larygealpharyngeal reflux) that does not cause the typical acid reflux symptoms of heart burn. The acid refluxes higher into the laryngx, pharynx and even the sinuses where it can cause laryngitis, sinus infections, and chronic cough along with a number of other issues. There are many other causes of chronic cough to investigate, but after allergies acid reflux is one of the leading causes.
19501685 tn?1478887405 Doctor recently prescribed ranitidine before bedtime as my reflux is worse at night. Could the reflux be the cause for the blood? I get really scared when I see it, I have been really anxious about this and have actually gained weight from the stress. The blood seems seem to be in my mouth when I wake up, no coughing going on a night, sleep with head propped up due to the reflux...please help!!
Avatar f tn t list coughing. However, coughing can be a sign of acid reflux disease- so you may want to consult a gastrointestinal specialist if you suspect that might be a problem for you.
Avatar m tn If mold is the culprit, then you will have to get your house checked for the source and treated. Gastric reflux too could be the cause. The treating reflux with drugs and lifestyle changes with decreasing coffee, alcohol, smoking and spicy food will help. Meanwhile try deep breathing exercise and steam inhalation. Over the counter antihistamines, and decongestants and non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs may all help. However please take with prescription.

Avatar f tn I had the same problems and my coughing was due to acid reflux and the acid reflux was being caused by wheat products, I stopped eatting all the junk and could not believe the difference, it may even help your asthma, those inhalers are full of side effects
Avatar f tn Often a blood pressure medications can have this side effect. Ace Inhibitors (Ramipril and others ending in 'pril') are usually the culprit. This may be a long shot but I have frequently seen this problem. Acid reflux definitely irritates the esophaugs and elicits a coughing reflex. Medication helps to block the hydrochloric acid from forming in the stomach. However any damage previously caused will take time to heal.
Avatar n tn For about a year, I have had a continual problem with coughing and clearing my throat that is so bad, that I sometimes cannot speak at public functions (part of my job.) Sometimes I cant even clear my throat no matter how hard I try. Every morning within 1 minute of getting out of bed, I have a coughing fit. However, I never have chest pain associated with heartburn. My doctor says maybe it is post nasal drip but a daily nasal steroid spray and daily Zyrtec didnt help.
Avatar f tn I am pregnant therefore I have acid reflux or gerd. I was so thankful to come upon this issue while on google! I have always, well since I was about 16, seemed to spit up blood after vomiting. I was just wondering if anyone has the reason this occurs after the 3 years since this question was first asked? When I vomit I do strain alot and dry-heave. I do not actually throw the blood up but the blood always occurs after vomiting...while I spit.
Avatar f tn It sounds very much like acid reflux. The only symptoms that I had was coughing and mucus. Went to lung dr and had all the tests everything ok there. Back to GI dr. who didn't think it was reflux because no pain only coughing. Had all the test including 24 hr ph test (fun) which showed I was coughing when I had acid reflux. My cough was so hard that it was causing other problems like blood pressure.
Avatar n tn My mother has been coughing constantly for the past 3 to 4 months and brings up a lot of clear phlegm, she has disturbed sleep because of this and the constant coughing is wearing her out and makes her really tired. I feel so helpless to see hear suffering this way.
2199283 tn?1338585841 Mostly you are asleep, coughing wakes you up, you sit up, you start coughing, coughing, coughing, then suddenly it feels as if your windpipe closes and you breathe, talk, swallow, anything!! This lasts up to 30-35 seconds (which seems like forever). It is very frightening! Eventually you can draw in small breaths and the episode subsides...... Has anyone heard of this? Please, please answer me. I've been looking for the people who wrote in before.
Avatar m tn For the past 3 weeks, about half the times I have eaten I have coughed and gagged for a few minutes. I get a feeling in my throat that makes me want to cough. I cough so hard that I gag and feel like I can't breathe. It all started back when I had a virus (100.4 degree temperature, migraines that wouldn't go away with pain meds, and the coughing/gagging). The other two symptoms have gone away, but I still cough and gag after eating.
Avatar m tn I have since learned on Dr. Oz Show that I have Silent Reflux, similar to GERD, but no heart burn, only constant coughing.
Avatar f tn I have been coughing for the last 4 months sometimes the cough is thick yellowish and other times its clear. My GP has given me nasal spray, omerperzole and now am on antibiotics. Despite all this the cough is not going away. What could be the problem?
Avatar f tn I have been coughing up phlegm daily for around 7 years. I've tried antibiotics several times without any success. I've had x-rays and mri scans but nothing showed up. Around 18 months ago my voice started to change. I was then prescribed omeprazole 20 mg capsules which make a slight difference and my voice returned to normal. But I still have to tap my chest and often have to get someone to hit my back to dislodge the phlegm which is milky white/ beige globules and quite a lot of it.
Avatar f tn So, for 3 months now, I've been coughing. Sometimes a lot, and sometimes, like right now, I just get random tickles in my troat with results in coughing. I've had chest pain before within these 3 months, but it went away. Now it's back, and it's a bid odd. Sometimes it's a burning sensation with over the counter meds for acid reflux can take care of, and sometimes it's random tightness/sharp stings both medial and lateral on my chest. Especially when bending over.
Avatar n tn Anybody experiancing reflux while sleeping? I am 32 weeks and when I am asleep I wake up struggling to breathe and a dry mouth I already take tabs for intergestion from my dr but it doesnt completely stop it.... can anyone help?
