287071 tn?1365192513 We had my 21 month old son to the clinic today b/c he was coughing and after an X-ray (to rule out pneumonia) and nebulizer treatment - we were sent home with steriods and more nebulizer. He never has had the 'seal bark' cough but had been consistently coughing all day. The coughing started at 4am! Now he's sleeping peacefully and hopefully will stay that way. Has anyone out there had a little one with croup? I'm wondering how long it'll last for... Thanks.
Avatar f tn I have had a seal like barking cough for almost 2 months now too.Have had 2 different antibiotics, chest Xrays . Finally to a lung specialist. She too suggested what REB 51 said ,perhaps it is cough variant asthmas, this kind of asthma has no weezing just coughins and can lasts for months. I sound like a seal, my throat is sore and my voice goes out. I have to take 40 MG of prednisone for a few weeks, an albuterol inhaler too.
Avatar n tn It sounds like either allergies or reflux triggering the running nose which triggers the coughing. You need to know and treat the cause. Asthma is also a possibility. God bless.
Avatar f tn You may have tonsillitis or tonsiliths- tiny stones that form in your tonsils and adenoids from trapped food that basically fossilized. It's also possible you have a glossopharyngeal fold dysfunction. If it happens after swallowing (food/liquids/or pills), see the following: I have this same problem but only with pills and no issue with food or liquids. The smaller the pill, the higher the likelihood it will be stuck in my throat for the foreseeable future.
Avatar f tn I had an Angiogram done on March 30th, there was an Angio-seal used, and I was given a card to carry with me for the next 90 days. I had an angiogram done in 2005, which was done the old way, lay for 5 hours after and never looked back. Never needed a painkiller or anything. This time, I can't walk without pain and am in alomost constant pain today from above the site of entry, with a very warm sensation around the site, but to look at the wound, all looks just the same as before.
Avatar f tn We used the holster one piece and now are trying one piece with the vent. The one piece with vent has an extra 'band aid' type seal around the wafer. The one piece with vent does not - I am scared it is going to pop off - am I missing something? New to this - thanks!
Avatar f tn Well today I feel so much worse than I did on Monday. I am having coughing fits to where I almost pass out, still super dizzy (even when not coughing) and my throat is even more sore and I hardly can talk (kids are enjoying that part lol) I think I have bronchitis. So glad I go see my primary doctor tomorrow. Are any of you ladies experiencing this?
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with a broken rectal seal and want to know if I should see a gastroenterologist or a GYN to have it repaired.How do I find a specialist to do the repair?
Avatar n tn i was told today by obgyn i got rectal seal whatis it andwhat caused it and is ther any danger of it going further
305180 tn?1279716747 It was more allergy/stuffy nose stuff, but then it turned into this nast cough. I sound like a harping seal. My chest is hurting too, along with my head, shoulders and stomach muscles from all the pressure. Did they give you antibiotics for the sinus infection?
Avatar n tn I just wanted to let you know that Aidan has not been getting seal bucks because he is bothering children who sit close to him. He has been asked to stop chasing others on the playground and even had a time out and still when I said he could get up to play he went back to chasing and grabbing children again. He is also playing with pretend weapons, (guns and swords) pretending to shoot or stab other children when the rule is no pretend weapons at school.
Avatar m tn I had protected sex almost 3 weeks ago shortly after i felt a burning on the tip of my penis. it comes and goes but i feel like i need to pee more often. my legs felt like they were on fire for five.days the girst week after but that went away. i tested neg for chlam and gono and topical cream seems to help the burning on the.heaf of my penis.
Avatar f tn And you would know the difference between hearing a cough or sneeze, as a cough sounds loud and scary like a seal barking. If kitty is coughing along with the sneezing and the eye issues, that is a very bad sign, and he really should be seen. Talk to your Vet about starting kitty on Lysine, an Amino Acid that will help build up kitty's immune system against the herpes and future URI's. Best of luck with this, and please keep us posted...
Avatar m tn 2 weeks ago I got sick, about one week ago I started waking up coughing, then gasping for air. It makes this terrible whooping noise and it takes me about 30-60 seconds to get a full breath of air, then it slowly goes away. I went to the doctor and they said no pneumonia, i have perfect breathing, my lungs are clear, my throat is clear, they did a chest x-ray. They think it might be bronchitis, but they're not sure. The breathing attacks keep getting worse.
Avatar f tn someone in another post suggested, Tessalon Perles (need prescription). It works by reducing the reflex in the lungs that causes the urge to cough. I'm having the same problem, which is how I found this area. I'm going to talk to my doctor about it. My back is getting sore from the coughing. I can't even talk with out coughing. It's almost like an uncontrollable reflex. It's odd I don't cough at night, while sleeping. 2nd month of treatment.
Avatar f tn I experience several bouts of heavy coughing that can last anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes while coughing up mostly clear phlegm with some of it a sea green color and at other times tinged pink - though this is rare. One out of ten coughing fits ends with me vomiting .... I guess it would be best described as a clear foamy form of phlegm. I do experience hot and cold flashes, sometimes it helps my breathing to step outside and sometimes it makes it worse.
Avatar f tn I was in the same boat a week ago. I ended up going to a cvs care clinic once the coughing hit and she said robittussein dm for the coughing, tylenol for the headache and benadryl if i felt stuffy and sleep. It helped until the cough got bad and then she prescribed me tesalon perles? She was pregnant and said she has used them to help with the coughing too.
Avatar f tn 30am coughing non-stop....coughing so much that he vomited! I gave him his Xopenex in the nebulizer, put him in the steamy bathroom, gave him a dose of the steroid. Throughout the day today, he did okay. He coughed, but not all that bad and he still took his Xopenex every four hours. Tonight he is in bed . . . Coughing! Any ideas? He is on so many meds, why doesn't anything stop this cough? If I was coughing like this I would have to take something to make it stop.
Avatar f tn I went to a dance club about 5 months ago and danced with a woman. While we were dancing, I started licking and kissing her neck, sort of like giving her a hickey, but not as hard. When I got back home, I noticed that I had a blood blister on the inside of my lip. It was also raw. I might have bitten my lip and not noticed. There was no blood coming from my mouth.
Avatar f tn He is miserable. The cough sounds like there is a seal stuck in his throat but like I said pertussis was negative. The only thing I did see on the internet was that Zyrtec can cause a cough, anyone hear of it causing this type of cough?
7301641 tn?1391016954 cold symptoms like sore throat don't last that long. Coughing and congestion do. Wouldn't hurt to rule out other stuff.
Avatar n tn it looks like their coughing and gagging, and it sounds kind of like a seal or a goose. I have taken them so many times to the vet so they can witness it, and of course, they wouldn't. But finally we were in for something else, and one of them did it, he said that pugs especially get these when they get excited, and that they aren't really dangerous, just to calm them down and keep an eye on them. I'm not sure if it's the same thing, but I do know how frustrating it is!
Avatar f tn THis link is a little technical, but it shows pics of the difference between a hiatal hernia and a paraesophageal hernia: http://www.nature.com/gimo/contents/pt1/fig_tab/gimo48_F7.html Paraesophageal hernia can grow, and they're more problematic than a hiatal hernia in general. One of the reasons you may be having issues with coughing is the 'tight seal' of the thoracic cavity is compromised with a paraesophageal hernia.
206807 tn?1331936184 Coughing up blood sounds like lung/esophagus issues. Heavy drinking can cause esophageal cancer...has he been checked for that?
Avatar f tn I can deal with the wheezing, but 3 times now over the past 2 months I’ve started coughing hard and pulled up a thick, brown worm/slug like hard mucus that’s about 1.5 inches long and fairly thick. Directly after, I end up coughing up a small amount of orangish “regular” mucus. Otherwise, I haven’t coughed anything else up at all. Anyone know what this is? I can’t find anything online.
