Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis dry cough


Avatar n tn I have developed a chronic dry cough & laryngitis, currently I have been dealing with symptoms for a month. I went thru same illness 5months ago was in the hospital & then passed around to various specialists without any real answers. I have done allergy testing, tests to rule out relfux, seen ENT, pulmonlogist, & family dr multiple times with not much success. No one can tell me why I got better last time, or why I am dealing with the same situation again.
Avatar f tn For 9 months now I have had a recurrent dry cough leading to laryngitis. I have recently developed a lot of phlegm coming up in morning only and some post nasal drip. I have had PFT(normal), chest CTSCAN (normal), Gastroscopy (normal). I have been diagnosed with GERD, Tracheitis, virus. I am going out of my mind. These problems started when I inherited 2 cats, but blood test revealed no allergy to cats.

469687 tn?1207329073 Within the past year, my 72-year-old wife has undergone two gastroscopy procedures. After the first, she had no ill effects, but following the second in November 2007, she almost immediately developed respiratory problems -- a hoarse voice, a deep and persistent cough, shortness of breath, and some bloody discharges through the nose.
Avatar f tn Started with sore throat and cold. Then the dry, hacking cough with little mucus. Laryngitis followed from all the constant coughing, which also disturbed my sleep for days. In desperation, after reading all these posts, I decided to try just gargling with warm water and salt added, as I read somewhere it was moisturizing and antiseptic to the throat. It worked wonders! I have only done this three times so far and what was a constant cough has all but disappeared! Please try it!
Avatar n tn Also check out condition called pachyderma laryngis which is a contition caused by laryngitis sicca. It means that in the morning you wake up with the dry catarh and crust in your vocal cords. Note that laryngitis sicca or many other laryngeal disorders can be diagnosed only with fibroscopic laryngoscopy otherwise you cannot diagnoseed many laryngeal disorders properly. The thing is that you should get CT scan of your sinuses. I have absolutely no reflux issues.

Most recently, I had cold symptoms, starting with swollen glands, dry cough, lowgrade fever and laryngitis.....
Avatar n tn Until seven weeks ago, I smoked for 25 yrs (pack/day). I have had a dry cough for about 5 yrs, mostly at night and eventually in the morning also. No breathlessnes but always hoarse and clearing my throat. I have hiatal hernia. In 2002 I had PFT tests done at Mayo Clinic in 2002. FVC 107%, FEV1 93% FEV1/FVC 71.4. DLCO 77% adj. Methacholine caused 28% decline in FEV1. Post BD FEV1 2.08 (73%). At Mayo endoscopy also diagnosed allergic rhinitis and significant chronic laryngitis.
Avatar n tn Symptoms can include a headache or pressure in the area of the sinuses, a stuffy nose, achy teeth, an odor coming from the nose, postnasal drip, cough, sore throat, laryngitis, lightheadedness, constant low fever, and thick, yellow to green nasal drainage. This inflammation can block sinus drainage and cause a stuffy nose. Typically this is worse at night when you lay down to sleep. Generally this congestion feels the worst when you wake up and gets better as the day goes on.
392548 tn?1216614379 I wake up in the middle of the night with a dry cough from it..but then it progresses to constant coughing. Today was the worst - I have coughed harder than when I had bronchitis over 6 yrs ago. This is driving me crazy! I will not go to the doctor, so I am going to ask the pharmacist about it. Maybe musenex or something will help.
Avatar f tn After a lobectomy May 5 (LUL cancer, never smoked), I got a persistent, dry cough.It's exhausting, and now sometimes nauseating, my chest & throat hurt. The docs don't know why. I've had silent GERD for the past-4 years. (gave me severe laryngitis for 4 months until I took double PPI (Rabeprazole 2x20mg), which controlled it.
Avatar f tn 4 days ago, i had bloody nasal discharge so i increased the dose of rhinocrt to 96 ug/day for 2 days, one tablet rhinopront,one tablet claritine this followed by greenish discharge and cough now i have laryngitis, hoarsness of voice, dry cough and watery post nasal drip, i am on unasyn 750 mg twice daily,rhinocrt 32 ug/dose once daily,brufen 600 tds, zantac 150 mg twice daily.
Avatar f tn I have been on the steroid sinus rinse Pulmicort and also the nasal spray Atrovent for about 2 months now, I get really great deep tissue massages from my voice therapist who says my cough is a spastic or proprioceptive cough. Still my cough persists and it comes mostly when I'm working as a server and when I'm talking. No amount of cough syrup, lozenges, steam helps it once it starts I just keep coughing.
Avatar n tn As soon as I put my head down,the invisible post-nasal drip just tickles, tickles, tickles. Unstoppable. dry cough. I never had allegies in my life. I am 51. I am desperate. Don't really know, neither does any of my doctors, what exactly causes it. Anybody with ideas?
Avatar n tn For the last 4 weeks or so I have had a dry cough, to the point of irritating my throat and causing my voice to disappear. In the morning I cough up phlegm, but throughout the day it seems like a hacking cough that produces phlegm just into my throat. This phlegm is a white to light yellow, I also have what feels like mucus running down the back of my throat from my nose which is constantly running, and stuffy.
Avatar f tn 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. 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.
Avatar n tn Most of the time the cough is dry, but then sometime I will cough up mucous. I cant stand it. When I cough my eye tears up, turns red and I look like im having some sort of bronchial attack. Last night I had several episodes I woke up repeatedly coughing My throat was dry then I took sips of water, which didnt seem to relieve it. The problem with this is that some time it makes my stomach hurt, I feel achy and nausea sometimes happens.
Avatar f tn Three or four days after open heart surgery (AVR) in March, I began what was initially a persistent, dry cough. After a couple more days, I wondered if the inspirometer had become contaminated (it was about the right number of days to have symptoms after the first time I used it). My capacity was fine, 2000 ml, so I gave it up. Somewhere in there, probably during the next week, I noticed difficulty getting my breath, and that is still the case after four months.
Avatar m tn After 43 days I went for EIA antibody test and result was Non reactive. Through out winter I was suffering from severe dry cough. I recovered from it just 1 month before. Till then I am suffering from minor laryngitis. I never had fever in the mean time. My questions: How accurate 43 days EIA antibody test result? Long lasting Laryngitis for such a long period, is it a symptom of ARS? After completing 90 days mark I will go for another HIV test.

Avatar f tn My throat doesn't get sore anything but it gets real dry. It almost feels like, and this is gonna sound gross but I don't know how else to describe it, there is hardened snot in my throat. When I eat something or drink something warm it kind of breaks up a little and I can cough some of it up but it's not phlegm. It's like a real hardened snot kind if like the consistency of a just moistened corn flake. I know that's gross but would could be causing this?
Avatar f tn Monday- started coughing, dry unproductive cough Tuesday- cough became very intense but still dry, felt like my chest was compressed, headache, unable to take deep breath without coughing fit Wednesday- started getting earaches but no drainage, more dry coughing that left me breathless, chest did NOT feel compressed anymore Thursday- on top of the ear problems and coughing I started getting ALLERGY symptoms (really watery eyes, runny nose, tingly sinuses and nasal cavities), low-grade fever Fr
Avatar f tn BP medication (lotrel & nadolol) was cause of dry cough many years ago, but now is back and I must keep water with me or get coughing attacks. When I get excited like at football games or loud parties my throat seems to tighten up and my voice is altered to very low like laryngitis until I settle down and its over. At night I seem to have to clear my throat alot if I don't constantly drink water.
Avatar n tn I lose my voice almost every day (I am a teacher so I do use my voice a lot). I have this dry cough that just does not quit. I have a little shortness of breathe. I do have asthma but the inhaler does nothing for me with these symptoms. Now my right shoulder, mid back & area under my right rib cage ache not pain just ache. Of course, this could be from this never ending cough. I have never been a smoker.
Avatar m tn My cough was my main thing i noticed usually coming in the morning or night. With mucus and mostly a dry cough. I sometimes spit white phlegm now it looks to me. I feel fine now but these symptoms and my unprotected sex has been in back of my mind for a while now and ive been stressing like crazy. What do you think? Ive looked up laryngitis because that friday and saturday night i did drink alot of alcohol.
