Laryngitis and prednisone

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis and prednisone


Avatar n tn His voice is not getting any better, and is actually worsening it sounds like he is a squealing mouse or wheezing excessively. He's on Omerprazole and Prednisone right now but I was worried because he's not better and we've been seeing different doctors they can't find whats wrong.
Avatar f tn I was on prednisone 30mg for three days with no taper for a sinus infection and laryngitis. A few days after stopping the prednisone, I had extreme anxiety lasting 24 hours. My heart rate would not slow and I had to her put on propranolol to lower my pulses. It's helping a little. Has anyone else heard if this happening after prednisone? Will it go away? I e never had panic before, just general anxiety without physical symptoms.
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 f tn ) The body may also develop a tolerance to the drug such that, much like is possible in addiction, it takes greater and greater amounts to achieve the desired effect. A person on a high dose of prednisone (a steroid) of a length of time will become physiologically dependent on the steroid, and in order for their doctor to safely discontinue the drug from their regimen, it has to be slowly tapered down (even if it was abruptly started at a high dose).
Avatar f tn I am a 51 year old femaleI"ve had widespread chronic burning pain (feels like burning acid through my veins). In the last year my skin has loosened - top layer can be pinched and stays - dry and wrinkled.,alot of muscle loss.Hhistory of balance issues muscle weakness and pain for 15 yrs. EVPs originally showed delays in legs and eyes but mri was clear.Demyllenating disorder was tentative diagnosis.
Avatar n tn on several antibiotics...and prednisone. Everytime I would go off the prednisone and antibiotics, I would get sick again within a week ot two. Finally ended up in the hospital in June...changed pulminoligists...they put me back on the Advair (which had supposedly stopped working last january) and that finally did the trick. Gradually I have gotten better but now my hair is falling out! And I have been left with heart problem...distolic dysfunction...not too severe.
Avatar m tn At the same time, I developed laryngitis, an ear ache and sinusitis, which started on the operated side and progressed to encompass my whole head. Pain was more pronounced on the operation side feeling like eye strain emanating from the socket, with an occasional fleeting sharp pain which has slowly reduced. My ENT did a thorough exam and ended up doing a CT and found no infection and ruled out allergies or a cold.
6043244 tn?1378618288 So far it has affected his ears, lungs, and kidneys. He only has 40%-50% kidney function and his ears and constantly stopped up making it difficult to hear, and he has started coughing quite a bit at night and having laryngitis.
Avatar n tn I constantly get laryngitis - approx 9 times in last 10 months. Do not always need antibiotics but this time I did. This started about a month ago - so first i had laryngitis, next week chest infection, last week lower respiratory tract infection! I am on my third set of antibiotics and feel 'slighly better' however for the past month I have had severe pains between my shoulder blades - these started before anything.
Avatar m tn My usual problem is inflammation after a cold which lingers and sometimes requires prednisone for asthma. I haven't had a bacterial infection in a long time... and not even sure if this is a true bacterial infection. I am a faithful netipot user :) How long should it take for this medicine to work if this is really bacterial? I'm only taking it for 5 days which seemed short. Thanks!
Avatar n tn Anyhow, urgent care prescribed me another round of antibiotics, allegra, and prednisone. I followed up with my pcp who added singulair. I still have the tickle and hacking cough episode along with deprivation of oxygen. I'm scheduled to see a pulmonologist this Friday. The only diagnosis that relates to these symptoms is whooping cough. According to my research it's resurfacing. They say that the vaccination can wear off around age elven.
Avatar n tn I am a 29 yr female had a brief problem w/ gerd 4 1/2 yrs ago w/ the feeling of my food sitting in my chest had a scope had mild inflammation normal biopsies took prilosec for 8 weeks and was fine until 4 months ago..I was fiagnosed w/ asthma and at the time was given prednisone and advair..I started to get heartburn and indigestion so I stiopped taking the meds..
Avatar n tn I have the constant Post Nasal Drip and throat clearing as a result of it. This has bothered me for about eighteen years and just keeps getting worse. Being a stand up comedian, this really hampers my profession. On December 8,2005 I was doing a show in Virgina and saw a local doctor there. She gave me Tussionex and within the hour of the first dosage the drainage stopped. The next week was wonderful as I was even able to cough up stuff for the first time in a long time.
Avatar n tn I am a 27 year old Canadian woman who has been living and working in Japan for the last 2 1/2 years. For the last year and a half I've been having a lot of problems with gastritis and reflux and I can't seem to get rid of them. I first noticed the symptoms last year when I felt a terrible burning in my stomach and had a lot of belching and heartburn after I ate. I had an upper GI X-ray done and there wasn't anything wrong except for excess acid production.
168348 tn?1379360675 We did the steam in the bathroom for 15mins and then the head in the freezer for 5 and finally it worked. Her asthma inhaler was useless since it's upper airway. She was at the Dr on Thurs for sinusitis and negative strep so now we know why it wasn't strep. Will call her Ped today to get a script for Prednisone. Been years since she's been on that and hope for a better night -- this came out of the blue and they say the 2nd night can be the worst of 3. 17 ....
Avatar n tn I have recently become sensitized to perfumes, with reactions of laryngospasm, laryngitis, and difficulty breathing. These attacks are immediate to contact with perfume and some other inhaled "fumes"(toilet bowl cleaner, feebreeze, candles, air fresheners). I am able to control most of these except that I work with the public, and still come in contact with perfume wearers. I have ended up in the ER 7 times in the last 3 weeks.
250155 tn?1485299539 but he does not have a fever and is still happy and playful... he just has lots of snot and a bark! i just want to know if its common to get that same sounding cough each time he gets sick? my dd's never did this...
Avatar n tn Afer 10 days, I was still coughing, and got flu-like symptoms, sore throat, fever, runny nose. Got antibiotics and Prednisone (steroid). It didn't go away. Now I had been into this thing for 24 days. Went to an allergy specialist. He said I was allergic to dust, some weeds. Got heavy dose of Prednisone. Cough stopped. As soon as I stopped taking the steroid, cough came back with a vengeance. I have been coughin' now , what, almost 3 months? I sometimes think, I am going to lose my mind.
1329619 tn?1275155234 after work i went to the emergency room and i was having another asthma attack, not as bad as the first one but bad enough that they kept me over night. i was put on prednisone for 4 days, and i started feeling better but as soon as i stopped taking the prednisone my allergies get really bad, my sinuses are almost completely clogged and the worst part i am having trouble breathing again, at work its the worst any time i try to do anything physical i get short of breath.
Avatar m tn The asthma was when I hit bottom. I was short of breath for a month. The Drs gave me an antibiotic, prednisone and had me on a nebulizer but nothing helped. I thought I was gonna die. I knew I was allergic to aspirin and that aspirin is a salicylate that comes from the bark of the willow tree. I wondered if any foods contained salicylates so I typed in" Foods containing Salicylates". To my horror I saw hundreds of foods that I was eating everyday.
Avatar m tn Since then, I've been able to speak, but I get pain in the left side of my throat and my ear when I talk for more than a minute. In general, I feel discomfort/a small lump in my throat when I swallow which is really what hurts. My voice sounds totally normal, though. A doctor gave me a 3 day course of prednisone which helped a lot (I was able to talk with no pain; I thought that I'd healed completely) but since then I've gone back to being in pain when I talk for too long.
Avatar f tn It came back when I started abx. (I didn't know what I had other than laryngitis, fever, chills, and malaise, and only took a weeks's worth of meds, not enough to kill all of it.). Last year, I only had one shot of prednisone followed by four days of oral prednisone. That was enough to send me into a steady and increasing decline over the next 3-4 months. My climb back out of the Lyme rabbit hole has taken far longer than my descent into it.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with colitis 10+ years ago, and my 2nd flare-up started 13 months ago, but it won't end! I'm still with gas, bloating, blood & lots of mucous (sometimes nothing but mucous & blood), frequent loose stools, sometimes explosive and hard to hold, abdominal pain, fatigue and lots of joint pain.
Avatar n tn Trying me on amphotericin (nasal douching) - did better first 2 months - then had a bad infection with laryngitis and sore throat (took z pac)- still not over it from a month ago. Have recurrent sore throat and some yellow phelgm. About to give up. Dr. said he would try amphotericin for 3 months and look at CAT again to see if surgery needed. First sinus surgery was an absolute disaster (bled profusely for a month - then scar tissue formed.
Avatar n tn ) As to your problem Vocal Chord problems can be linked to Asthma and in my case the inhaler I used to take Becotide - left me with a very hoarse throat - not sure if your inhaler could be doing the same, I work were I use my voice constantly, and I sometimes sound Like I have laryngitis all the time - in fact people are always sorry about my cold - when I don't even have one!!
Avatar n tn I have been sick with a persistent, explosive cough that sounds like a trumpet is inside my chest and my right side of my ribs is in constant pain and not getting better. Since before Christmas when I thought I had bronchitis, two different antibiotics were tried. Since then, I have had three chest x-rays (normal, thank God); CT scan of the lungs (normal); two emergency room visits (I thought I was having a heart attack, couldn't breathe, gasping for breath).
Avatar m tn 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. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Avatar n tn He put me back on antibiotics even though he did not see infection but did see a lot of lid swelling and irritation of the conjunctiva. But these new drugs are really strong. Gatifloxacin and prednisone. I am very concerned that this is not really addressing the problem --whatever that now may be--allergy, dry eye, sensitivity from the earlier rounds and am feeling uncomfortable with being on these kinds of drugs for more than a month all together!
Avatar m tn I have tried everything it seems for several years to get rid of this thick mucus that comes and goes in my vocal chords. I went to an ENT again and they went down my throat with a camera and were able to show me on film the thick stringy mucus in my vocal chords.
Avatar f tn When I went to my family doctor last Thursday I was prescribed an oral rinse and Prednisone for the inflamed vocal chords. It was at this point that she said that it looked like a viral infection and it had to just run its course. So instead of waiting this out I decided to go after the virus with a mixture of raw garlic, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, ginger warm water and honey.
