Laryngitis and bronchitis

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis and bronchitis


Avatar n tn After about a month, I went to see my PCP which told me I had bronchitis and laryngitis. She put me on Amoxicilian, Claritin, tessalon pearl (for the cough) and albuterol inhaler. After finishing all my antibiotic, continuing claritin, tessalon pearl (as needed) and inhaler, I started to feel better. Once again, the cough is back, runny nose, and no voice. Will I EVER talk again? Have I done too much damage to recover from this? And why do I continue to get sick? PLEASE HELP!
Avatar f tn I tend to get a minor cold three or four times a year. About three or four days later I will develop bronchitis, followed by a laryngitis and perhaps a minor sore throat. I will have coughing spasms in which I gag and cough for several minutes, at times spitting up yellow mucus. Incontinence is common during these coughing spells. I have no trouble breathing; I am a non-smoker. But the major symptom is extreme fatigue.
Avatar f tn I have heard of bronchitis but not sinobronchitis. Does this mean you had bronchitis and a sinus infection ? Would you believe that right now I am experiencing laryngitis myself. It's true. So I looked up laryngitis in a medical reference book I have called Merrick Manual of Medical Information. " Excessive use of the voice, allergic reactions, and inhalation of irritants such as cigarette smoke can cause shot lived ( acute) or persistant ( chronic) laryngitis.
Avatar n tn There is no code for aspiration bronchitis or aspiration laryngitis, although these definitely exist. Bronchitis means, limited to the bronchi. Pneumonia indicates involvement of the lung substance (parenchyma) itself, beyond the bronchi.
Avatar n tn My doctor said it was a virus, she ruled out strep with my negative results, and she gave me some cough syrup so that it would soothe my throat and be able to swallow, and said to come back on Monday if I lost my voice completely. Well, the weekend came, I slept all of Saturday, drank more hot tea than ever before, drank apple juice, laid low for a while.
Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. As you have described, your symptoms could be triggered by allergens. Environmental triggers are the most difficult to control and they have to be managed, either medically for the symptoms or by re locating as you have done. When you have to visit a prone area, try using preventive inhalers, so that it prevents the attacks or reduces the severity of your symptoms. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Hi, welcome to the forum, there may be acute bronchitis with or without laryngitis. Acute bronchitis usually presents with sputum (mucus), coughing and can also present with wheezing esp. when the small bronchioles are involved. Associated gastro esophageal reflex disease can worsen the condition. You need to send the mucus or throat swab for culture, microscopy, staining to rule out the pathogen.
Avatar n tn It hurt on right side above breast and thru sholder blade. I saw a doctor and he did a chest x-ray. He said I had a touch of bronchitis.(I don't have a runny nose or other cold symptoms-a tiny cough). After taking 2 days of antibotics, pain went away. I was very tired. I returned to work on day 4 of antibotics. On day 5, chest pain came back(not as bad and only in chest). I have never been allergic to anything, but mom is. I have a deviated septum and "no frontal sinus".
Avatar f tn Hello, I have (for the first time in 14 years) a baaaaad case of respiratory illness (bronchitis, laryngitis, sinusitis)- my right lung has friction (building towards pneumonia) and so I am now on cephalosproin antibiotics plus Robitussin/codeine syrup. I go back in a week for chest xrays of need be, meanwhile the hubby and kiddos are giggling at my man voice. I noticed that my spacticity, hemifacial spasms, facial pain (ATN/TN) and parasthesia seems exacerbated QUITE a bit. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn I am in the process of getting over Laryngitis and bronchitis. I still have a nasty cough, and some sinus pressure, but have my voice back :) I am supposed to have an EGD this coming Wednesday will they still do it, if I am still pseudo sick??
Avatar n tn If it feels like bronchitis, an upper respiratory infection, that's likely to be viral and not responsive to antibiotics. The more concerning symptoms would be fever & chills but those can be with a viral infection too. Hoarseness is from laryngitis and is cured by not talking Drinking lots of fluids is a good idea If it's getting worse, especially after 10 days or more, go see your doc.
Avatar f tn I orginally went to the Dr for dry cough and laryngitis. Was told I had bronchitis and was given antibiotics (bactrim). A week and a half later, I felt somewhat better. Suddenly two days later, I didnt go to the dr this time, I had sinus drainage hard core. My ears were popping every few seconds, head would pound with movement, and overall just a raw feeling in my throat. I got over that in about 5 days on my own...yay. But then got an allergic reaction of hives and swollen hands and fingers.
Avatar n tn 1) direct aspiration of the acid reflux into the lungs, resulting in bronchitis and/or laryngitis; or 2) reflux just into the esophagus in a person with asthma who then has wheezing or cough through nerve reflexes. You might want to check this out with your doctor. This doesn't explain the shoulder pain. That could be caused by tendinitis or a condition called adhesive capsulitis without any obvious change on x-ray, especially if the pain is aggravated by motion of the arm and/or shoulder.
773755 tn?1328123377 I have studied this online and I'm planning to take the instructor's course in 2014, as I want to teach this to my my little nephew back in Greece who has asthma, a good friend who has bronchitis and asthma and anyone else who can benefit from it. Some of the conditions it can help alleviate symptoms and bring improvement: NERVOUS SYSTEM 1. Headaches; Migraines 2. Vertigo 3. Fainting (sometimes with epileptic spasms) 4. Insomnia, drowsiness and other sleep difficulties 5. Tinnitus 6.
Avatar m tn I recently got over a bad case of bronchitis so bad I went to the ER. And now I am left with what seems like post nasal drip but does not really make sense. We thought laryngitis but it has not reacted like it would it has been going on for over 3 weeks. Below is the latest idea I had on the cause of this if anyone could help with it I would be grateful. And would the z-pack be effective if this from the huge hole in my tooth that food gets stuck in. It is an upper tooth.
Avatar n tn 08 (73%). At Mayo endoscopy also diagnosed allergic rhinitis and significant chronic laryngitis. Seven weeks ago during a bad cold, I woke up unable to breathe in. I never had anything like that happen. The ER, diagnosed bronchitis with an asthma attack. The nebulizers did not help much. The IV steriods help and I went home.( Best PEFR at the ER was 320.) I quit smoking that day. My cough stopped completely 4 days later.
Avatar n tn I saw my doctor 7 days ago, and she diagnosed me to have Sinusitis, Bronchitis, and Laryngitis. SHe put me on a Zpack for 5 days and things started to get better. The darned problem is still here. Is there any idea what this may be.
778528 tn?1253816950 I told the doctor that I didn't feel ill 4 days ago, because I know what a sinus infection, bronchitis and laryngitis feels like. This pain is different. It is not internal like the pain you would feel with an upper respiratory infection. This is pain that I have never felt, and I can tolerate a lot of pain. I asked the doctor about getting a thyroid blood test, and he said that since my thyroid count was normal 2 years ago, you wouldn't see a big change in the numbers.
392548 tn?1216614379 2013 I was given antibiotics for 10 days, for bronchitis that started with laryngitis. It is now Feb. 5th. I have had a dry cough from the start (totally unproductive) with an itchy inner chest feeling. I have been experiencing pressure in my chest on and off with this. I believe I am have the beginnings of rheumatoid arthritis with joint pain and swelling and various symptoms. Could there be any correlation? Also, What should I do next?
Avatar n tn It is usually not the drug of choice for UTI but is mostly used in otitis media (infection of the middle ear), tonsillitis, laryngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, and sinusitis. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn I had the flu, then bronchitis, then laryngitis and now, 3 weeks later, my doctor suspects an ear/sinus thing. He prescribed amoxicillin when I complained of feeling tired and kind of off balance. Everyone disagrees with me when I say the antibiotic makes me feel more tired than before. Any ideas...or am I just nuts?
709537 tn?1232588455 i have been treated for pneumonia, bronchitis and laryngitis for a month/various antibiotics(pills and shots), prednizone, decadron , depomedrol shots, mucinex, singular, robitussin dm, nebulizer with albuterol. just finished meds, dr. xray and sent me to lung specialist who said i have scar tissue on my lungs and will do a ct scan thursday. i am still barely able to whisper and extremely tired w/cold sweats. i had the same thing w/more excessive cough, sputum and fever in may and june.
Avatar n tn I'm curious. I've seen alot of people using celexa complain of fatigue and weight gain which can be typical of some SSRIs. I've noticed that several people have had a drop in T4 while on celexa (TSH/T4 checked prior to initiating antidepressant therapy). Is there any literature out there on this? Can you offer some enlightenment? Thank you.
Avatar n tn For bronchitis see: UPPER RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS (COLDS) and ACUTE BRONCHITIS "Acute bronchitis is swelling and inflammation in the airways of the lungs. It is often caused by an infection. Rarely, acute bronchitis can be caused by exposure to chemicals or toxic gases. Symptoms can include: cough with sputum production chest discomfort fever extreme tiredness.
Avatar f tn Bronchitis is an inflammation of the large bronchi (medium-sized airways) in the lungsAcute bronchitis is usually caused by viruses or bacteria and may last several days or weeks. You need steam inhalation,sucking of cough lozenges and a course of antibiotics. In most cases, acute bronchitis is caused by viruses, not bacteria, and will go away on its own but generally antibiotics are given as a precautionary measure to prevent secondary infection.Pls consult a physician for that.
Avatar f tn Im in No Cali and have had this horrendous coughing and laryngitis for 38 d Im so frustrated and now worried and I was a paramedic for 25 yrs! U guys have made me feel much better I am to see the ENT finally next week.
Avatar f tn He realizes he can't because he doesn't even try to say works he just points. Is this in some way related, and should I worry? He still has not reached being 100% in my eyes beacuse he lays around a lot more.
