Avatar n tn Thank you for the information now here's my story: Five years ago, I had a bad chest cold, the doctor's office was over booked by two hours and I coughed till I was blue. After that I developed slight asthema, I also went for dental work, which I overmedicated on baby asprin, Advil, etc., and wound up having an endoscopy done which resulted in a little reflux and small herina, after being on Previdcid went away.
Avatar f tn I am going to bring all this up with my doctor on Friday, But is there something else I could be doing? Is it more than a bad cold? Or am I just worrying for no reason?
Avatar n tn My runny nose is also going away too, but the thing that is constant and never changing is my coughing. I have been coughing a lot and it seems there is no stop to it. I can't even sleep without coughing every 3 minutes. and it's usually two coughs then stop. I have taken everything from sore throat candy, to tea, to running the shower full heat and sit in the bathroom like a sauna, to gargling salt water, to taken the medicine they gave me at the clinic, to drinking a ton of water.
Avatar f tn So I have a cold and cannot stop coughing, will this harm the baby?
Avatar dr m tn Every time you get a cold, notice how it usually starts in the throat with a tickle, a scratch, or a slight cough. It then progresses into chest congestion or travels up into the ears and the sinuses. You’ll have a low grade fever, mild chills, and a runny nose. Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right?
Avatar n tn drinking water, concentrating and relaxing). This has been a regular occurrence over the last year (during which I caught cold about 4 times), and while I've read that hiccups can be caused by irritation to the diaphragm, I haven't heard or read about anyone who consistently suffers from hiccups when having a cold. Is there anything I should be concerned about regarding this?
Avatar n tn Also in UK.. when I got my jab I got a cold after.m I was told I can have lemsip powder 1 per day and this worked for me.. if I had needed stronger then dr said she could do something else..Robitussin is sold in UK..
Avatar f tn I found that sometimes though that warm water would ease my throat a bit and it seems like cold dry air triggers the coughing more. At first, I'll begin to cough every 10 minutes or so, then it becomes more frequent, every couple minutes and sometimes it'd get so severe that I just keep coughing until there is phlegm that comes out but it is clear. Its been so bad lately that my stomach and chest are hurting, sore, and I'm afraid that I may cough in my sleep.
Avatar f tn I'm hoping if it's still going on when I have my appointment on Thursday, my actual doctor will do something better!
1454858 tn?1306787978 I am 10 weeks pregnant & for the last week I have been coughing. (this certainly doesn't make the severe nausea any better) anyway, the coughing has gotten much worse. I can berely sleep, I coughed so much last night. Other than the cough, I don't have any other cold symptoms really.... It is kinda a dry cough, with a tickle that makes it feel something is stuck in my throat. The caugh is very harsh & is making me horse.
Avatar f tn I used to have a problem until I stopped drinking milk. You say you have no food allergies but did you ever stop drinking milk for a week or two? Being around smoke is a disaster for the respiratory system.
Avatar n tn If its to cold I'm coughing. If I'm drinking something cold I cough. If I eat some thing cold I cough. I just wish I had answers. I just want it to stop.
Avatar n tn The nursery have now recommended a homeopath who I am going to try and see if it makes a difference as I really feel now two years after this started that it is affecting his quality of life - he can't play for too long with out fits of coughing - when he gets a cold he is sick every/every other day and at breakfast time he can hardly keep his breakfast down because of the phelgm he is unable to clear from his throat.
634733 tn?1316629592 there is a difference between coughing because of aspiration and aspiration because of you cough all airways open up trying to get rid of the agent causing the cause. This leaves the airways suseptable to food or drink to the lungs which causes more coughing which then causes slight aspiration. Think of it as the famous saying...It went down the wrong pipe! So start expeirementing with foods and drinks while you arent coughing and make note of that...
Avatar n tn She is much better, sleeping through the night, but coughing sporadically through the day and occasionally at night. She still coughs when she laughs or drinks something cold. It is a very deep, chesty cough that sounds as though she has TB! The doctor said she would cough for awhile in order to bring up the mucous plugs. We are quite concerned about her well-being and further incidences of this sort. How long should this go on, and should she be using inhalers instead of Seretide?
Avatar f tn This winter has been very cold and my asthma kicked in. I have found if the air is cold or if I overheat I start to cough, which can lead to the gagging. I feel like there is something stuck in my throat and it is always feels like it is scratchy. My doctor put me on Symbicort but I felt like it made it worse. Sometimes the coughing and gagging feels like it wont end, my eyes tear up and sometimes it gets so bad it makes me pee.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
1061329 tn?1261717514 Hello, I have a cold, and it seems to have produced a lot of mucus. This happens to me about twice a year, and it really does a number on my asthma. I have a nebulizer and it helps a bunch with coughing up mucus, but too much makes me dizzy. I don't have health insurance, so I go to county hospital usually. But all they do is give me breathing treatments and a shot of prednisone and send me home. Now, I have a few prednisone pills left over from last time I was sick.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Hi, My daughter has asthma and bronchitis. Everytime she has a cold she'll get this cough and asthma attacks but after a week or so it's just this dry cough that has a barking sound to it. She has had this many times causing her to miss a lot of school and social activities. She's also embarrassed whenever she goes somewhere because of the coughing. Everytime this happens we go to the doctor and have every test possible done and they all show nothing wrong.
Avatar n tn I have excessive mucus and don't know how to cough it up i do believe its food allergies but when i catch a cold it gets worse what can you sugest i do what kind of treatment can i take for this. please help someone.
Avatar n tn He seemed very blahze about it actually, I've learned to always keep sucking candy or water nearby if I'm driving or something else hazardous to prevent coughing too hard and passing out at the wheel. Btw I am not a smoker other than a very very rare cigar.
Avatar m tn I was coughing badly, had a sore throat for about 3 days and a running nose. In a week of drinking fervex every day it was all gone except for the coughing. I went to my doctor and she gave me antibiotics. It got all better but after i finished the last pill the coughing came back. a little less worse. Then i went to a throat doctor. I had a throat secretion test which turned out that i dont have any viruses.

1129358 tn?1260229130 I had a bad cold not too long ago and as i got over it. A certain symptom stuck with me. I break out on random parts of my body with itching. If i scratch it, it breaks out into a lot of small bumps along with a red rash so ive learned just to rub the area and eventually it goes away (unless its on my back or somewhere i cant reach) Occasionally i will also have wheezing and coughing while trying to sleep.
Avatar n tn I have hacking too, but usually after drinking or eating something cold and/or thick. That's asthma in my case. It's triggered pretty easily these days thanks to my sinus issues. Have you been tested for it? Does breathing cold winter air cause hacking as well? That can be an indication too. Asthma isn't always shortness of breath, it can be coughing. And it's not always inherited - I'm the first case ever in my family, and I believe my sinus problems caused it over time.
Avatar f tn Sometimes excessive phlegm occurs after consuming fatty or creamy food; however it will absolutely happen when greasy food is combined with a cold drink in a social setting - the slightest anxiety about getting that horrid-sounding phlegm cough seems to constrict the chest and make it even more certain to happen. I have found a solution that works for me - a cup of unflavored hot strong tea that clears the grease from my throat.
