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 f tn I experienced a near choking event a week ago in a restaurant from coughing. I hadn't taken a bite yet but began coughing so intensely I could not breathe and was near passing out. When I got a breath it was very difficult and was more of a gasp for air. During the event I experienced severe stinging sensations in my chest. Since then every time I cough or sneeze the burning sensation returns and my ribs are very sore. Wearing anything tight around that area causes an extreme soreness.
Avatar f tn Hello, this concerns my life partner (58 years old, male). I've been concerned for a while now. He, quite regularly, gets very bad coughing fits while he sleeps. He snores badly and to me it sounds like he's "forgetting" to swallow his saliva and after some has build up in his mouth he starts choking a little and goes into a very bad coughing fit. He's even thrown up twice because of the violent nature of those coughs.

Avatar f tn My goiter has grown incredibly fast. No goiter/nodules in the middle of August, only coughing and hoarseness, to a full-blown monster that feels as if someone is pressing their finger in right above my collarbone and choking me 24/7. All of this happened in just 2 1/2 months! I hate everythin about this disease. The hoarsness is the pits . . halfway through the day I lose my voice. I suck on "lubricating" cough drops all the time just get by.
Avatar n tn I am a male age 60. In the last 6 months I have experienced coughing, choking and mucus for about 30 minutes after eating. I first thought it was related to a food allergy, but I cannot isolate it to any specific food group. I do not experinece and acid reflux or vomiting, just constant choking. This is very irritating and is a bit strange. Does anyone have an idea of the cause or where I should go for resolution.
393685 tn?1425812522 I believe I am coming down with a chest cold again and coughing up a storm. This biopsy is schedule for Monday - will they still do it if I am coughing at the time.

Avatar m tn Even one tonsil can be infected causing hoarseness, coughing, and even a choking feeling. Tonsils produce stones (somewhat like a gallstone) within several pockets you can not see just by looking in your mouth. But if your tonsils have been removed this would not be your problem :) Either way you should see a doctor. Good luck and feel better soon.
Avatar f tn My son, 2 1/2, has issues with choking. He seems to choke on simple things like water, milk, or even his own saliva/air. When we moved him to solid foods he would almost always choke at every meal. Most of the foods were soft or cut very small but he would still choke. I tried to talk about it with our pediatrician who brushed me off several times. We adopted him at 8 months old and I am not sure if he did this in the foster families home as they never mentioned it.
Avatar f tn Has anyone experienced really bad coughing during treatment? My boyfriend developed terrible coughing the first week of treatment. It's not a dry cough, he brings up copious amounts of flem/mucous. When he first started treatment, he noticed the coughing attack usually began about one hour after his ribavarin dose. This went on throughout his six month tx, some days worse than others.

Avatar f tn I have had a horrible cough myself. It's dry and my throat sometimes feels like it is closing too, hurts like it's being knifed and I can wake up feeling like I'm choking. Such a great time, ha ha. Coughs can last a long while once the airway, lungs, etc. are irritated. Any way you can see your doctor? Is the Benadryl making you sleepy and that is why you can get a break or are you using it as intended as what you take for an allergen to curb the reaction?

Avatar n tn If your wife has choking, coughing and ankle swelling due to fluid retention, she is probably having some right side heart pathology and maybe a left side heart pathology causing back pressure on lungs. It would be a heart attack, heart failure, myopathy or side effects of hypertension. She could also be having an advanced COPD. Your wife needs urgent medical attention. Please rush to an ER. Take care!
