Avatar f tn Hi i have a 12 year old male staffie who has had 4 seizures over the past 4/5 months other than this and a few fatty lumps he eats well runs around and is very happy but for the past few days has started coughing normally first thing in the morning and when excited cough sounds like he has some thing stuck in his throat any advice ??
Avatar f tn i have a high fever (probably viral) and that's going around my school. a stomach virus is also going around. this all in addition to the typical colds, ear infections, etc... that are constantly present. it's not your fault, there's nothing you can do other than keep them home when they are sick. if all parents did that then maybe there'd be less stuff going around. of course there'd still be some bugs, but it drives me crazy when parents dope up their kids and send them to school.

Avatar f tn An awful cold virus was going through my house last week, and this weekend was my turn. Fever, headache, congestion and cough. I've been taking Tylenol every 4 hours since Saturday to try and keep my fever down. Fortunately, I had my checkup this morning and my doctor said everything seems fine, keep taking the Tylenol for fever and add Robitussin DM at night to help me get at least some sleep.
Avatar f tn Seems that there is a cold going around New York now. Starts with a sore throat and then makes you tired and acheu/sore all over. Some people also develop a cough. Seems to last a few days. Anybody else have this one?
Avatar n tn it seems something is going around, many are starting to have the same thing, It could be anything, Fluoride in most of our water supply, those medications getting into our water supply, Corn syrup- the body can't process very well it must be processed in the liver, instead of by each cell like regular sugar is processed , A virus from mice excrements on cans, it's causing problems, lack water and balanced minerals.
738075 tn?1330579444 I've had an interesting month of having occasional but spontaneous breathing and coughing issues. At first I thought it was leftovers of that virus I had in April, or seasonal allergies. But it continues. I'll be doing my normal daily activities, breathing normally, and then I'll start coughing for no reason. A shallow, dry, non-productive coughing spell, and then I can't catch my breath. This often happens in front of patients at work, and I have to reassure them I don't have a bug.
Avatar f tn Oh dear. . . a bad heart can also cause fluid to collect around the heart and in the lungs which can feel like you have the flu. Perhaps his heart failure is not as controlled or "fixed" as he thinks. I wish you luck convincing him that he should be checked. It may take a face plant (falling down) before he realizes he needs help. That's what happened to my Dad. He thought he was doing great. Took his pills, had his ICD, what more did he need?
Avatar n tn ive yet to go back to the doctor i was thinking maybe i need to get my tonsols removed or it might be a bad virus going around but ive had them checked 2 weeks ago and took that medicine so it cant be that i dont think oo and my fevers have been very mild and getting headaches..
3181540 tn?1344554524 My dog is coughing a lot, sometimes it wakes him up too, but mostly he sleeps well. He eats normally, even more than usually. He's 2,5 years old and was just recently in a pet hotel, in contact with a lot of dogs. It might be kennel cough, but I'm not sure. What should I do?
Avatar f tn Hi I have this chest cold too. Alot of it going around here in Washington. I started with a sore throat, then I got the chest cold and now I have the cough. I have had this for about 4 weeks. I went to the doctor and he said my chest was clear and gave me some nose spray to use to dry up my sinuses. I have heard that it can take up to six weeks for the cough to go away. Also I can feel drainage down the back of my throat and I heard that can make you cough.
Avatar f tn My DD is almost 4 months and has a possible stomach virus. She has a really bad cold with a cough that I took her to the doc for on Monday. He said her lungs sounded perfect and she has not had any fever and acts fine. Last night she threw up after eating, but she was coughing and I assumed she gagged on some phlem. The same thing happened with my husband this morning. He said when he picked her up she threw up a lot, but she was coughing again.
Avatar n tn The back of my throat always feels very dry, no matter how much water I drink, and often taking a deep breath or yawning will start a coughing fit. My biggest concern is the my nightly coughing fits when I can't breathe. It makes me nervous to go to sleep at night. I am getting quite desperate as I have not improved at all in 3 weeks. Please help.
Avatar n tn I'm genotype 1b and no traceable virus after 5 weeks of treatment. Side effects are livable weekends are worse but then things improve. Mostly mild body aches with slightly elevated fever. One annoying side effect is the coughing. I've noticed that after I eat I tend to have a mini coughing fit and then the cough is more manageable. Anyone ever heard of this before? Also, I noticed that I tend to have issues with acidic and spicy foods gives me acid reflux.
209384 tn?1231171906 Sure hope those antibiotics help soon -- you poor gal, you must be so tired of feeling horrible. I'm in Michigan, and the nasty cold virus going around here is bad too. I've had the cruddy sounding cough now for over 3 weeks -- the body aches, fever, sore throat are gone, but this nasty cough I just can't get rid of. Turned into bronchitis (if I remember right) on Lori (kipland) -- we live in the same general area.
Avatar n tn I know she was crying because the next morning her eyes are almost white again. She is still coughing and of course she will be going to the vet with me. Wish her well because her loss would be terrible. I will post what happened after the vet visit.
Avatar n tn Last nite i had 2 coughing attacks before going to bed. Scared to going to bed because i knew this would continue thru the nite, I was asleep and woke up to severe coughing and difficulty breathing. I have an inhaler but did not want to use it. I got up after the coughing stopped and rinsed my mouth and took a couple of sips of water and went back to bed. When i went back to bed i decided to start breathing exercises.
Avatar n tn Are there any other symptoms or just the severe cough. Have you read my post "ConfusedMan41" just posted a few minutes ago?
Avatar m tn yup and also going around the US its allergies but from the environment read up on the chem trails they are spraying toxins over us in UK ..look at the journal ginger 899 has up about them and do some research ...
1410020 tn?1322302865 I started off with a cold and like a coughing virus. I was tested for every virus the doctor could think of and it came back with nothing wrong with me. I am over the cold part and feel ok but still have a sniffly nose and a cough. When I cough I too can not breath it is very scary and my poor kids are always saying are you alright mum. I am so worried I will have one of these coughing episodes and won't get my breath back.
Avatar f tn Also since my asthma has never really flared before and It's been quite mild especially as I've gotten older and since the pred burst didn't work my drs believe that this is not my asthma. However, it could be just a virus hanging around, I'm not sure and neither are my doctors but they (or at least this new one) just want to make sure it's not something else.
Avatar m tn He breathes heavily, breathes, then wheezes until he finally coughs something out of his throat, then smacks and licks his lips. Sometimes he just coughs once or twice. Today, he has been coughing all day and now he is breathing heavily and has twitches in what looks like his lung area/sides while breathing. Listening in on his lungs sounds like a tornado or what a human's noisy upset stomach sounds like. However, I might be listening to his stomach, I'm not sure how big a cat's organs are.
405614 tn?1329147714 can I give myself my Avonex injection in the leg that I'm going to have a total knee replacement on, the night before surgery? Do I feel so awful from this virus/bronchitis/asthma because my MS flared up too, the dizziness, blurred vision, etc.? Do I really have to avoid the gym for my final three weeks before surgery to stay away from other virus possibilities, realllly? My final three weeks of Zumba before a very long rehab after surgery.
Avatar f tn As previously mentioned, pugs have an elongated soft pallet to the rear of their mouths, which can cause bouts of coughing, particularly if an infection or virus causes a flare-up of inflamation or irritation. Surgery can help (if this becomes a frequent problem for the dog), as it is possible to remove part of the soft pallet. For periods of coughing or laboured breathing (when no other reason can be identified), it is recommended to give a short course of corticosteroid and antibiotic.
1416390 tn?1333905204 An EKG or ECG can detect what part of the heart is having a problem.....They usually run around $100.....Some Vets will suggest this test, some will not...THey will just go ahead and treat... Next- Kennel Cough- This is a virus and antibiotics will do nothing.....Cough syrup is very necessary to help this run it's course.....Lasts a few weeks & the cough is excessive!!!! Collapsing Trachea- Common in small breeds- This cough is more like choke-gasp, choke/gasp....
Avatar n tn ) i was referred after a pulmologist i was going to could not figure out what was going on. i had been to two other ent's, another pulmologist and an asthma dr. whom none of them diagnosed the problem short of acid reflux. taking in or blowing out air fast causes them to spasm shut. i now can only breath thru my nose. they never did say what to do if i catch a cold.....nose spray i guess. inhalers, breathing tests, hurrying, walking up a long flight of stairs, wind and many things set it off.
Avatar n tn Is there anybody who has experienced the same problems that my family is facing? What possible virus or disease could my brother have had that would have caused our symptoms? Thank you for reading my post and I hope that many of you will respond.
