Avatar n tn They did manage to bring her back and no sooner did they kick us out of there! The doctor sure had a scared look on his face too. Lately she has been coughing up blood and her hand gets to tingling from time to time. She also gets short of breath pretty often. Without any insurance, where do we turn from here? Are there any places that do body scans at reasonable prices as we are not made of money.
233622 tn?1279334905 This is why when I switched neurologists I went and picked up my records from them. I told them I like to keep all my medical records together when I travel in case I need them, which I do. The problem may be release forms. With HIPPA you have to sign to have records sent from one doctor to another. Some of my doctors will take a verbal request others have to have everything in writing.

Avatar n tn Two years ago I was admitted to the hospital to the hospital for coughing up blood . Being that my mother had TB. I told them I would come up positive every time I had the test . Prior to being admitted I had a significant amount of blood I was given IVs and started treatment for TB Now again I was at work and started coughing up blood .
Avatar m tn Well, if you are coughing up blood, a responsible adult in your life should be told so you can be seen by a doctor. I doubt I have to state the obvious that inhalation of smoke from weed isn't good for you. but coughing up blood is something that requires medical care so you need to talk to your parents about seeing a doctor.
Avatar n tn Well, you definitely need a work-up by a pulmonary specialist. That being said, coughing up blood maybe very serious, and then again may not be very serious, so don't think you necessarily have a fatal illness. There are many possibilities.
206807 tn?1331936184 Never had an esophageal bleed but once those vessels burst it entails a lot more than just coughing up blood. As a rule those blood vessels just don't seal themselves back up and bleeding out can happen quickly. Did you see Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart? He was a bad alcoholic and towards the end the old boy was dying from the booze, p-issing himself, coughing up blood and on his way out. That was a pretty fair depiction of a raging alcoholic.
Avatar f tn Since about the second or third week post quitting I started coughing up this weird white/gray phlegm that has a terrible, bitter acrid taste that coats my mouth and back of my throat almost like an oil. Similar to bronchitis sputum but not green or yellow. There's no tar in it, no black bits, and it's always a small amount but it's once a day, every day. Usually after I eat. I hate it, it's disgusting and I'm not sure why it's still coming up! Anyone else?

Avatar n tn I told him that I was not coughing up blood nor had I been coughing up blood. My family doctor then stated to me that I would cough up blood and then it would be too late for me. I have trusted my family doctor for some years, but I felt this was a very negative statement by him to me. I have deeply researched COPD, try to remain encouraged and I felt this doctor was giving me an immediate death sentence. This has greatly upset me.
Avatar n tn Have been coughing blood in small amounts in the past two days . Was taking TB medication and finally I was told it wasn't TB . Had x-rays taken before and after treatment no change in the spot in the lungs . As of right now it's more like chunks of blood instead of watery blood .
Avatar n tn my throat seems to close up at various times of the day and night, I start coughing, my eyes start to water and my throat has a bad tickle that makes me cough. It's like someone sprayed air into my mouth. When I sleep on my left side, I have noticed that it feels like my throat is closing up and I start coughing and my eyes water. I've tried antibiotics, allergy meds, cold and asthma meds. sucking on cough drops. Nothing seems to help. What can it be???
Avatar f tn how can i get records from a mental hospital my boyfriend was in that has since shut down
Avatar f tn He is on numerous medications which includes spriva, lasix, flomax, dilantin(for seizures), MSIR, Mscontin, Restoril, Theophlline, rotating antibiotics, nebulizer treatments, valium, and cymbalta. He has starting coughing up quite a bit of blood. His lung dr. told him to take his antibiotics. his nurse told me today that he might need Hospice. No one has told us anything. his lungs sound crappy(thats the extent of what the drs. tell us).
Avatar n tn Then request a copy of his medical records from his latest check-up. Go over them with him. When you talk with him do so when you are alone and nobody else is in the house. You are probably correct in assuming he is "fibbing" about his actual condition. He probably doesn't want to worry anyone. Men can be very stoic. Whatever happens in the future always remember you tried your best to push things in the right direction.
Avatar m tn Okay so it started almost half a week ago I'd say.. I wasn't feeling sick at all, but for some reason I just started coughing up a lot of phlegm.. clearish to yellow colored. I don't smoke cigarettes, only on the occassional weekend. I do smoke pot. Anyways I thought the phelgm coughing up mighta been caused by some resin I was smoking, but they said that was black phlegm, not clearish yellow... So a few days pass of coughing up phlegm, and now I'm sitting here.. irritated...
Avatar f tn I had an endoscopy this morning and I woke up from the anesthesia coughing badly. I was practically choking and it hurt when I coughed. It felt like I had water in my lungs. It seems to be better now and none of the medical staff were concerned. But I have had endoscopes in the past and beer woke up coughing. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn Over the course of the last 15 years I have fallen apart. Can the adrenals wake up after being suppressed for so long? My mom is no longer here to tell me the details so I have ordered my medical records to confirm. Then I am sure my endo will actually treat me for low cortisol, and if not I will find someone who will.
