Coughing up stomach acid

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up stomach acid


1285120 tn?1273755207 I take kapidex, Bentyl , Alkaline Drops( acid neutrilizer) and Carafate. Recently I have been throwing up stomach acid , have a foul taste in my mouth with nausea and coughing up stomach acid too. My Pulmonologist said that the acid reflux can back up into your lungs if you are overweight with a Hiatal Hernia which I am. My Gastroenterologist does not think at this time that I require surgery to fix my Hernia.
Avatar n tn rushtyyyyy green and yellow flem should not be coming up from allergy unless it is stomach acid. Usually allergy is clear mucus. I'm not a doctor but I wonder if it is a bacteria infection. Sorry I don't know the correct answer. Maybe the doctors are correct too. I just personally haven't heard of colored mucus from allergy. Allergy can cause mucus that can lead to bacteria infection too. See another doctor.
Avatar f tn Since we are talking about coughing. I had a few questions of my own. I have had issues coughing for the past 4-5 years. I caught constantly. Sometimes it makes my headache worse but sometimes I don't have a headache so it doesn't bother me. I do have sinus disease as per my MRI. So that explains the post nasal drip. I always have problems coughing whenever I am near or around water. For example I cough so much in the shower that sometimes it will make me throw up or gag.
Avatar f tn This happens in some dogs when they first wake up, the stomach is empty from not eating all night and there is a buildup of acid. You can try an experiment to see if this is what it is - try feeding your dog a small snack late at night or, if you wake up during the night, give her a cookie or two.
962492 tn?1247458219 The other possibility is that you are coughing up blood. This can be due to bronchitis or pneumonia, lung cancers (especially in smokers), tuberculosis, bronchiectasis, pulmonary embolism, or fungal and other infections. Discuss these possibilities with your doctor. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Take care!
Avatar m tn This morning after waking up I felt sick so I didn't fight it and it seemed as if I had very strong stomach acid as it was very painful to actually be sick. Once I'd finished it's left me with a very soar throat and I'm coughing up blood every now and again, it's not excessive amount. I've also noticed that the skin around my left eye had lots of dark red patches and they seem to be all over my face but less dense. I do feel slightly drowsy also.
Avatar n tn And he's perfectly well and happy otherwise? There's nothing wrong with that but there can sometimes be a build up of stomach acid just before they are due to eat. If you think that might be it, then splitting the food into 3 meals a day might help. But obviously that might not be the answer, so do mention this to your vet if it keeps happening.
Avatar f tn Hi I am constantly coughing due to Acid Reflux.. I am bringing up mucus, tried every thing the doctor told me to do.. I have taken to this day five boxes of Pantecta.. I been on steroids , antibiotics, name it. Is there anyone who knows of a home remedy I can try to stop coughing and help me with my acid reflux.. Its been over four months am coughing non stop..
Avatar f tn You could take vitamin B6 supplement to ease off the psychiatric symptoms. The acid reflux, coughing attacks and seizures occurring at the same time is highly dangerous, as your friend can aspirate pulmonary contents leading to a fatal complication with full stomach and semiconscious state called as pulmonary aspiration. Consult your neurologist for these and a change of drug if keppra is causing this. Take care.
Avatar f tn The cough may be irritant in nature. It is possible that you may have acid reflux from the stomach. Sleep is associated with less saliva and less movement along the esophagus which may promote more reflux. Consider your dinner time schedule, you may need to eat 3-4 hours or so before going to bed or assuming a supine/flat on back position. You could also try to sleep with your head in a more elevated position (add more pillows).
Avatar f tn I was left with a really bad cough, sometimes coughing non stop.. I went to an ENT doctor and he told me I had Acid Reflux, which is the reason am coughing so much and bringing up mucus. I am on Pantecta now for over three weeks and still coughing.. Is there anything else I can take to stop this coughing.. I am really tired and frustrated.
Avatar n tn Again most doctors don't get this because they are not that great at metabolic endocrinology, most of the research is recent, and because acid reflux does irritate the throat, they do not look for a common metabolic cause, they just treat the acid reflux and get stumped when that doesn't clear up the mucus. So here's the experiment - eat a big meal - you get mucus, maybe acid reflux or heart burn. Eat a high carb meal. same result.
675823 tn?1226158574 hi, it sounds very much like gastritis.
Avatar n tn I read about some test where they put a tube from my nose to my stomach to monitor stomach acid, but if that reveals that stomach acid is the problem, then what do I do? BTW- I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy about 18 months ago and it was normal. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Avatar n tn I was told that coughing up mucus is a very common side affect to using PPI's for acid reflux? Is this true? I have been coughing up mucus since sept every morning.........have been on prilosec for about 3 months now, recently twice a day per doctor in the past 1 1/2 months........I am wondering about stopping that drug, however fear the return of the burn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar m tn I have had a cough for 3-4 months and i have been coughing up flegm. For about a couple of weeks, i have been having pain in my ribs (right side) so i need to know if I need to get this checked out or it could be something serious and should go to the ER. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I recommend that your mother have a pH probe, which measures the acid in the esophagus to see if digestive juices are coming up from the stomach. This is the best test to find out if she truly has gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). She should also have a careful examination of her nose, sinuses, and throat. Even though her chest x-ray is normal, it is still possible for a problem in her lungs to cause her cough.
Avatar f tn A cough is generally a result of an irritant such as stomach acid (gastric reflux), mucus (asthma), hair spray, perfume, dust, pollen, mold, even spicy food, post nasal drip, or infection. It could also be due to infection such as pneumonia or bronchitis. Chronic sore throats can be allergic, viral or bacterial in origin. Many viral conditions like EBV (glandular fever) behave in this way with recurrent respiratory infections.
Avatar f tn My third pregnancy I would wake up in the middle of the night coughing up acid, it was horrible!!!
Avatar n tn He is still coughing up blood. It seems to happen mostly in the morning. He has a history of Acid Reflux disease. He is taking acifex everyday to deal with that. He had a test to make sure that he had no damage to his esphoagas. The doctor thought that if he continued to cough up blood, that he should go to a lung specialist. I am wondering if it has something to do with his stomach, since he has had problems with it for over 10 years. Maybe the antibiotic and acifex caused irritation.
Avatar n tn laryngospasm' when the laryngial opening close reflexly. One major cause is acid reflux; acidic fluid from stomach regurgitated and irritating the larynx. You didn't mention your age or if you have been taking any medication earlier. For ex. some medication taken for high blood pressure may cause this. Another is 'adult whooping cough', which of course, is rare. But so is such laryngospasm. If you don't feel better in a few days, you may have to visit the ENT again.
Avatar n tn This causes acid to buld up and when food piles on top of food, the acid has no where to go but back up in your throat. So yes you have acid reflux and for a good reason. There are some things you can do. gastro doctors use this website for diet for gastroparesis. Follow it closely. Do not use Step 1 longer than 3-5 days. Another thing you can do and you may of heard of this. But it is actually true. 1 tbs. apple cider vinegar and 8 oz.
Avatar n tn It seems there is phlem stuck in my throat all the time and sometimes it is much harder to bring it up. When I went to ENT specialist, I was told that it is connected to Acid Reflex. I do not feel any other symptoms of Acid reflex. Should I get second opinion. I also saw some blood in the phlem when I brought it up. I was diagnosed with IBS about 2 years back.
629118 tn?1222196545 While you go about your normal activities, the device measures when and how much acid comes up into your esophagus. This test can be useful if combined with a carefully completed diary—recording when, what, and amounts the person eats—which allows the doctor to see correlations between symptoms and reflux episodes. The procedure is sometimes helpful in detecting whether respiratory symptoms, including wheezing and coughing, are triggered by reflux.
Avatar n tn so it was tighten up again and the acid reflux returned so I had more test done....nothing found again so it was tighten up again...I seem to me that the doctors should look into finding out what can be done to fix this problem, since we have paid more then enough money to have this surgery done and look to them for the answers....
561964 tn?1283802216 Hello, Cough on lying down is due to acid reflux like in gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD). Acid from your stomach may back up into your throat. This is called acid reflux. It can cause heartburn or cough. Try raising the head of your bed about four inches with blocks. It also might help to avoid eating or drinking for two hours before you lie down. To help control the stomach acid, one should not drink alcohol or drinks with caffeine in them, or eat chocolate or spicy or greasy foods.
Avatar n tn At times the vomit accompanies the coughing, and just yesterday she threw up the most she's done up to this point, looking like stomach acid and mucus, no food involved, without coughing. She had a fever for one or two days a couple weeks ago (weeks after the coughing began). It's a little worrisome actually, so any help would be appreciated. She has never had this problem before, no allergies that we know of, all vaccinations are up to date.
Avatar f tn Hi - For several weeks now my stomach has been swelling up giving me pain after I eat and I have a sense of being bloated . I am also experiencing breathing difficulties making me cough throughout the day and night. The doctor says it must be acid reflux but after taking a course of tablets I am no better so will have to return to the Doctors to ask for a MRI scan which will take months to arrange here in the UK.
Avatar n tn I had my tonsils out 14 years ago due to the fact that I would wake up in the middle of the night and feel like my throat was closing up, gasping for air, and coughing. I then got braces and a retainer in my mouth to move my teeth and jaw around. They pretty much said there wasn't a lot of space in my mouth for my tongue and that's why these choking/gasping/coughing attacks were happening. I hadn't had any coughing/choking fits until yesterday.
