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).
Avatar n tn said) it happens when the blood from your body has not arrived back to the heart (working as a pump) and re-distribute it back in to the brain due to the high pressure in your chest blocking the blood after coughing very deep.. after reading this, I try not to go that deep in my cough and take something to calm my cough down or any other pain relief to go to sleep softly and let the cough go ..
Avatar m tn gov/pubmed/3132788 this is just one of many sites tht support the fact that head trauma, neck injuries or trauma related to accidents can indeed affect the thyroid function . If your thyroid panel results were abnormal after your head injury there is a high possibility it is related to the trauma from the accident/head injury. Find an endocrinologist or physician to support you and get it documented. Then the insurance company will have to comply.

Avatar n tn trauma, coughing, sneezing, straining, heaviy lifting.
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 n tn Coughing up a large amount of blood (more than 100mL in a 24hr period) is a medical emergency. Regardless, any coughing up of blood (hemoptysis) is a serious symptom. There are many causes of this. This includes airways disease (such as bronchitis, cancer, airway trauma), pulmonary disease (tuberculosis, pneumonia), immune disorders, pulmonary thromboembolism, heart conditions (valve disease), or blood disorders.

Avatar n tn The common causes of petechiae include local injury and trauma, allergic reactions, autoimmune diseases, viral infections that impair blood coagulation, platelet conditions, or certain medical treatments. They are commonly seen right after birth in the newborn and after violent vomiting, coughing or in your case, crying hysterically. This usually resolves on its own and has no permanent or long term effects. It is best that you avoid crying in this manner or anything that may cause this.

Avatar n tn This is called a subconunctival hemorrhage and can be caused by coughing, sneezing, hard straining, and eye rubbing. Sometimes occurs for no apparent reason. Usually totally painless. Often, worsened by taking aspirin or other blood thinners. You should go ahead and see an ophthalmologist since you have some associated headaches.
Avatar m tn Do you still experience spiting of blood or hemoptysis? Hemoptysis is usually caused by violent coughing; lung infections such as bronchitis, pneumonia or bronchiectasis; trauma to the chest; and even in nose bleeding. To determine the underlying cause, additional tests like chest x-ray or CT scan may help. Take care and do keep us posted.

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 m tn I have heard that blood vessels in the white part of the eye can burst/break (subconjunctival haemorrhage) due to strain like heavy coughing and sneezing etc ,but can heavy strain also cause blood vessels in the iris to burst/break? if so what would the symptoms be?
Avatar n tn Conjunctival hemorrhages may be associated with trauma, rubbing one’s eyes, high blood pressure, medicines which prevent clotting of the blood such as coumadin, aspirin and increased pressure. The hemorrhage resolves over time. I would definitely see an eyeMD to determine whether you indeed have a conjunctival hemorrhage and to have your blood pressure checked. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
Avatar n tn The most common cause of petechiae is through physical trauma such as a hard bout of coughing, vomiting or crying, which can result in facial petechiae, especially around the eyes. Petechiae in this instance are harmless and usually disappear within a few days. Petechiae may be a sign of thrombocytopenia (low platelet counts) when platelet function is inhibited (e.g., as a side effect of medications or during certain infections), or in clotting factor deficiencies.
Avatar f tn If it both eyes at the same time it might be more likely to be related to trauma, severe coughing or vomiting, blood disorders that make the blood too thim, bleeding in the orbits, or blood way too think from warfarin or thinning medications.
