Common Questions and Answers about Coughing blood tonsillitis

coughing

Avatar m tn Before all of this I was a healthy person, never had tonsillitis nor a geographic tongue nor a chronic cough. My CRP and ESR levels have been fine all the time (even during the tonsillitis). Other blood tests were all fine as well. They did multiple swab tests (candida and some viral test they said), all negative. Chest x-ray was negative as well. I feel the doctors have done little effort to find the root cause for all of this and to find the right treatment.

Avatar m tn Hi there, The common causes of blood in cough are bronchitis, irritation of the throat from violent coughing, blood clot in lungs, tuberculosis of lungs, vasculitis etc.Though you do not have any symptoms like coughing or shortness of breath you should see your doctor and get evaluated. A clinical examination and tests like X-ray chest ,sputum culture and smear, blood counts may be necessary. Further tests will depend on the test results. Treatment will be specific based on the cause.
Avatar f tn They strep test came back negative and was sent home to rest. Still believe I had tonsillitis, the girl I sat next to said she had tonsillitis and a week later was when I became sick. The whites on my tonsils lasted about 2 weeks, no other symptoms but a sore throat. Week three I started to get a runny nose and a cough. I'll be sitting in class and experience a coughing fit and trouble stopping, it was a dry cough. Went to student health again, was prescribed benzonatate and Claritin.
Avatar f tn When I was vitamin D deficient I had bronchitis and was coughing up blood to severe strep throat twice. Studies mention optimal vitamin D levels are 40 - 60 ng/ml (100 - 150 nmol/L).
Avatar m tn Make this a priority. Coughing up blood is not good.
1531644 tn?1292099055 It got better, then it turned into tonsillitis. After taking antibiotics that has cleared but the sever coughing has continued. Here is the real mystery. I have noticed there's a bad tenderness, soreness to the skin under my left breast over the rib cage. Just on the one side. There's no redness so far, only really sore. What could be causing this?
Avatar f tn Tonsillectomy is advised if there is recurrent streptococcal tonsillitis, recurrent peritonsillar abscess and chronic tonsillitis. Recurrent tonsillitis is an indication for tonsillectomy, as the tonsils may harbor the infection which keeps flaring up, or they may develop new infections. Also, sometimes persistent enlargement of the tonsil can sometimes be due to a lymphoma. So, if it is not responding to max, medical treatment, then tonsillectomy is the option.
Avatar m tn I went into the doctor and she informed me that I have tonsillitis. I was given some medicine, I think some kind of Penicillin that I have to take one tablet of four times a day. I have to take a blood and urine test tomorrow so I should find out soon, but I am really worried now.
Avatar n tn She was coughing so much this morning she fell off the bed in a coughing (maybe seizure) situation. Got up and acted like nothing happened except coughing. Appetite is fine. Energy still fine. Just this series of (sounds like dry coughing). Any words of expertise. She is my best friend....
Avatar f tn I get alot of flem in my throat and when its cold, I spend alot of time coughing it up. My mouth dries up quickly, I have a strange little gulping thing that I do when I am speaking to clear my throat. The thing I hate the most is I can no longer sing properly. I could sing at full soprano previous to my tonsils swelling up but after some time I cannot even get close to that. My voice also craps out when I speak any base note... my mouth moves but I am completely silent.
Avatar f tn Not sure but would go and have it checked out. Around 24wks I too picked up a cold with lots of mucus for about a week. It started off with a red, burning throat. I went to the doctor just to make sure it wasn't tonsillitis, as this would've meant taking antibiotics. Luckily it was just a cold and I'm recovering without having to take any medication, just water and rest.
Avatar f tn I'm suffering because I'm avoiding medication. Any natural remedies you might know? Does this flu affect the baby in any way? I'm coughing like crazy, can't breathe from my nose, feeling weak & feverish. Hope this goes away soon...
Avatar m tn This past time I had a low grade fever for 7 days. (I was swabbed both times for strep) I keep coughing up tonsil stones that are the size of peas. I'm also having chest pressure throughout the day. I am still on anti-biotics but I'm still feeling sick. I haven't reinfected myself because I clorox wiped the house and I cleaned out my room, changed tooth brush/sheets the usual. Now, even when I don't have strep I suffer from extreme fatigue, low grade fevers, and chills.
Avatar n tn research shows that there can be more tissue damage in adults,blood vessels are larger in caliber, could be more post nasal drip and GERD can occur...
Avatar f tn Ok. So I have been coughing for over a week. Its a dry cough but yesterday I noticed my throat started hurting and when I looked in my throat there were white spots on my tonsils. I instantly started assuming I am getting strep. But none of my symptoms are the same as when I had strep before. Well last night I slept thru the night without waking up coughing but noticed myself waking up to me gasping to get air.. I woke up with no voice today. Last night I went to bed with a crazy migraine.
Avatar m tn Last night I started getting a bit of a sore throat and today I woke up with what feels like tonsillitis... I feel slightly light headed, sore throat when I swallow, coughing up yellowish coloured flem... We did not have oral sex at all, and I have not seen any other symptoms other than those listed above... I went to the doctor to get tested yesterday but they told me I was wasting my time checking for herpes since I would test positive because I get cold sores...
Avatar n tn I have been getting chronic tonsilitus for the last 4 years. I get it every 2-3 months, and am usually perscribed an antibiotic by a doctor, and begin feeling better within 24-48 hours after treatment. I got it again today [this time it had been exactly 4 months since the last infection] but this time it was directly after getting over a cold that had my throat sore, nose running, and had me coughing.
Avatar m tn My son who is 12 is having episodes of coughing up blood every 60 days --it started in March of 2012 -- it sometimes starts with sharp pains in his right side (front) -- or sometimes he just coughs up blood -- the coughing up of blood lasts for about 20 mins -- he coughs up about 1/2 of a specimen container of blood -- he says it feels like there is something he needs to cough up -- he coughs -- not too hard - and then spits into a cup and it is blood.

Avatar n tn It is unlikely that you have acute tonsillitis due to acute HIV infection. Tonsillitis can be noticed when the immune status in the body gets low and is generally noticed during the later stages. At these stages, the number of days the symptoms would last would depend on the immune status and would vary from person to person. However, it is not uncommon for HIV infection to present with ENT symptoms.
Avatar f tn (which two months ago we also discovered when we got home from being gone for a month there was a little mold in our basement) I actually started coughing like the day after I discovered the mold in our basement which had started growing due to being gone for so long and leaving our air conditioning off for a month in the middle of summer. But any how I don't even know if it has anything to do with the mold.
Avatar f tn m not sure if this is related, but I have been coughing up a bit of mucus for about 2 weeks. I wrote it off due to cigarette smoking (I just quit today so, while symptoms from that won't vanish immediately, I'm no longer adding to them), but I'm including it in the question as a "just in case it's related" thing. Thank you for your responses in advance.
Avatar f tn I am 22 years old and only recently I have quit smoking and it has been over a month now. Last week I had an irritation at the back of my throat that made me cough and spit green and brown phlegm. This alarmed me and so I went to my loca doctor. The doctor prescribed me medicine for allergy and an antibiotic by the name of augmentin. She said that I should take a course of a week and see if I improve and if not I should go back to her for some further tests.
Avatar f tn ve heard of girls having this happen and being fine, but it is always better to make sure with this. Coughing up blood can be a sign of a blood clot in the lung or something serious like that. Tell them everything. Stay calm and good luck!
