Laryngitis and coughing

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis and coughing


Avatar f tn Had to leave work today and may have to take time off as I have no voice. My sinus issues seem to be worse and digestion, may be causing this. My ENT is doing some tests. If anyone has suggestions , pls send my way. Thank you!!
Avatar n tn A couple days later started feeling better and then I started coughing more and then I ended up with Laryngitis. What can you take to speed the recovery from losing your voice. I am so hoarse and wasn't really coughing much to cause this Laryngitis.
Avatar f tn 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. " " Treatment of viral laryngitis depends on the symptoms.
Avatar f tn I have had no fever, no coughing, no runny nose nothing! I barely have a voice and I am on day 9. I have really bad headache as well. I am drinking lots of fluids what else can I DO???
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 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 m tn I don't know what started it, what changed to start it., or why it happens. I am tired of coughing all the time and am sure the people around me are tired of hearing it. I went to a doctor who tested me or allergies and said I am allergic to nothing. She did a chest xray which came back clear as well. I have constant sinus drainage and my cough usually gets me gasping for breath when I laugh...odd I know. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
Avatar m tn I have also been able to stop my coughing fits and itchy throat by simply wearing a good filter mask over my nose and mouth. You see the Japanese wearing them alot. They know! I hope this information is useful to some of you, sometimes a problem is as plain as the nose on your face....covered by a mask. Now I must go operate on my ingrown toenail-deaden it with Ora-gel and dig away. God Bless The U.S.

685931 tn?1226969988 I have gone to several doctors form allergy experts to pulmonologists, they had me under several tests for lung capacity, xrays but they have not ound anything wrong about my lungs, I dont feel pain, just the irritation of coughing and the irritated looks on the people around me. I have no colds, no laryngitis nor pharyngitis or any other inflammatory throat inrection. Im taking antihistamine right now but it seems as it is not helping me at all.
Avatar n tn A few days after the initial sore throat, the ear pain cleared up but I developed laryngitis with throat clearing and coughing mostly in the mornings and evenings. Today (seven days later) I still have laryngitis. Some of the days since I got sick, I would spit up yellow stuff and then later in the week, it turned into a green color. It was a struggle to get it to come up but some of it has.
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 n tn I frequently feel mucous at bottom of larynx, having to clear my throat and horseness some coughing. I do get dry mouth while sleeping at night. When I talk extensively or at loud pitch, my voice gets raspy. I was recently diagnosed with GP by use of radioactive gastric scan but seem to have none of the other symptoms associated with it: no heartburn, no nausea, no bloating, no vomiting, able to eat large meals.
Avatar n tn I just get these violent coughing attacks that literally feel and behave as if I inhaled a bread crumb, and my body suddenly and violently is trying to cough it up. And just like when we are choking, I have a hard time catching my breath during these violent choking fits. By the time I'm done 4-8 minutes later, I'm shaking, tears streaming down my face, and I've probably wet myself. Its horrible! Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Avatar f tn After continuous coughing to try any release whatever it was, I slowly got a sore throat and lost my voice. What I want to know is: will taking MDMA aggravate my condition? I'm not a habitual drug user, in fact The only time I take any form of recreational drugs is is on holiday. Tonight my brother is playing a really big show and we have been planning it for ages. Assuming that I refrain from overusing my voice, is it ok to have one night out with a regular dose of MDMA?
Avatar m tn 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. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
Avatar n tn Then I developed an upper respiratory infection (sore throat, laryngitis, and increased coughing) and the whole process started over again. I'm taking an antibiotic which has dealt with the infection, but I am getting so frustrated with this never ending cough, which is affecting my ability to work and interact socially. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Is there anything I can do to expedite the cough's departure?
Avatar f tn I have been sick off and on, more like on and on, for three and a half weeks. Many things going on so Ill start from the beginning. 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.
Avatar n tn There is a condition called epiglottis, but that is often accompanied by difficulty breathing and the inability to swallow, without aspiration into your windpipe, and severe choking and/or coughing. Infection could also cause an abscess of the throat and that is quite serious. You should have your throat examined, as above, without delay. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I slept well last night, but I am tired today. I still have a burning sensation in my chest and periodic coughing. My nose is stuffy. I feel like I may be going hoarse. It just seems like bronchitis which I haven't had in 30 years. I was very hot and sweaty all day Sat. with 80* temp and the next day we were down in the 30's and I got chilled. Should I just do things and eat things to keep the passageway moist, or do I need to go the Dr.
Avatar n tn I had lost my voice then i got it back with a cough and now i can't stop coughing and coughing up mucis, i'm starting to get swelled up watery eyes, and my ribs are saw, do u no what it is? and what i can do about it? Please Help me....!
Avatar n tn I had 2 really bad colds this past winter and they diagnosed me with Bronchitus. This spring I started to have a buring sensation in my Lungs and Throat. Also, a sever pain in my left shoulder from time to time. I seen my normal doctor multiple times and had chest X-rays. Their first diagnosis was a signs of COPD. I am 29 and barely ever smoked and am 6'8" tall and pretty thin. They ruled out COPD after they re-looked at the Xrays because my size my lungs are bigger.
Avatar n tn I've had a cold for about a week. Sore throat is gone.. but coughing, phlegm, and laryngitis has set in. I took off a vacation day for today (asked for it a while back) so I could finish painting our bedroom and living room. But my husband insists that I not paint while I'm sick. I'm bored out of my mind watching tv, etc.! Would painting in a well ventilated (windows open) room hurt me? What about gardening?
Avatar n tn When using inhaled corticosteroids, some of the drug may deposit in your mouth and throat and cause laryngitis. This can cause coughing, hoarseness, dry mouth and sore throat. Gargling and rinsing the mouth after each puff on your corticosteroid inhaler, may help to prevent mouth and throat irritation. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The irritation could be due to the post nasal drip. This is more so as there is evidence of a nasal infection. It should resolve once the infection subsides. Its unlikely to be from the infected tooth. But sometimes, infected tooth roots from the upper teeth can go inside the maxillary sinus and cause sinusitis. This in turn can cause a post nasal drip and an irritation in the throat.
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 f tn I also see a really fantastic ENT and a great voice therapist and they are both doing their best to help me but are kinda perplexed by why this is taking so long. I've also had lots of constant sinus congestion, green and yellow very opaque mucus. so 2 months ago we decided to try an anti-biotic. I went on Amoxycillin, I had a bad reaction to that so I stopped taking it and we switch the Clarythromycin.
Avatar n tn Acute pharyngitis and laryngitis is the commonest cause of loss of voice due to infection and inflammation of the voice box and throat. This active infection, coughing, and clearing throat can often result in break in small blood vessels. Usually these heal with treatment of laryngitis which involves antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic drugs along with maybe decongestants, warm saline gargles and throat elixirs.
Avatar n tn But when I think about it I haven’t had the semi-annual nasty bouts of laryngitis, coupled with coughing up gross stuff and even grosser stuff coming out the nose, since I had my thyroid/bad parathyroid gland removed. I also think about the long-term effects, particularly of the med, on the heart and kidneys. The whole thing is a change, not just in having a chronic condition but being on a med everyday.
