Laryngitis that won't go away

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis that won't go away


Avatar m tn (Couldn't agree more about hospitals not necessarily being the place for it, but I won't go into the reasons I say that here). I note from the salicylate sensitivity forum that many people have found it difficult to treat the sensitivity, although there are papers such as "Individual Monitoring of Aspirin Desensitization" that provide evidence for its efficacy (as typical with this kind of research, very small numbers involved).
Avatar f tn I however have laryngitis that just won't seem to go away. I've had the laryngitis for about a week. I'm just wondering why the Azithromycin worked to clear up my lung infection but not the laryngitis? What can I do to help my voice come back?
Avatar n tn I've had pain in my back since April. I've smoked for 30 years. I went to the dr. in August & he took x-rays. They came back ok & I quit smoking immediately. But the pain won't go away. It's right in the middle of my back -- 1/2 way up & down and 1/2 way left & right. I'm concerned because when the technician took the x-rays, it was his first day & he kept making mistakes.
556467 tn?1225381291 If it were really bad, by now you would have heard. If it is something still not so good, alot still won't go out of their way to call you. You have to call them. Just ask the receptionist/nurse if your test results are back, and if they say yes, then get an appointment asap, or even ask to speak to the doctor. I do this myself many times, as I live a long distance from many doctors, and most are very good about a quick phone call as opposed to a sit down visit. (Saves them time!
Avatar n tn Eventually I get frustrated and see a doctor when it won't go away and fuss to get on antibiotics with resistance from the doctors and it goes away. Antibiotics run out, within a week I am sick again. Symptoms range from and can be all at once or some for while and changes to others: very dry cough, productive cough, Laryngitus, sinus pressure, ear aches, sore throat, fatigue, watery eyes, etc...
Avatar f tn There may be a member or two who can PM you with the name of a doctor in that area. But barring that please go to one of the sites run by doctors who treat Lyme disease. You will have to google for them since posting links is sometimes not allowed here. So, google ILADA or google Lyme Disease Association. Both of them have a 'find a doctor' link you can click on, then follow directions.
Avatar f tn My boyfriend also gave me a card that the clinic gave him to give to me. It says if I go in I will receive priority scheduling so I am going on Friday morning for sure, I cant handle this stress for too much longer. But I do have one more question, the pamphlet he was given for the medication says he cant have sex (with or without a condom) or drink alcohol. Is this just because of the medication? And what would happen if we did have sex while he was on Azithromycin?
931217 tn?1283484935 that which works, and everything else, with the everything else being "not medicine." Values, beliefs, hopes and biases infuse the way people feel about their bodies, their health and the way medical care is provided to them, however. Those psychological attributes of people, sometimes go against what is known about medical science and common sense. Homeopathy is one such case. If it is true, then what we know about chemistry cannot be.
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.
1763313 tn?1313882057 I really believe if you took the time to deal with all the grief in your life, all the changes, that your anxiety would no longer have anything to feed on and would go away. That DOES happen. I think it would for you. Contact your local hospital. They have grief counseling classes all the time. Even if you're not the "joiner" type, just give it a try. When you can help others deal with their pain, a little of yours goes away.
Avatar n tn I have personal experience with Prevacid and it's side effects. It didn't dawn on me right away that my problems were a side effect of the Prevacid. I suffered with severe stomach pain, low blood sugar, and dizziness and thought they were all GERD related not medication related. As soon as I stopped the Prevacid, my other symptoms went away. Here is where you can see the Prevacid side effects (pages 25-26):
290867 tn?1333572878 I've tried rewarding and taking away. She never gets out of her bed to come to mine. She won't go to sleep unless she's in mine and running her feet through my hair. (she would never take to a blanket, or stuffed animal). When she wakes up in the middle of the night she screams bloody murder and nobody gets any sleep, and poor DH has to be up at 4 for work. She ends up with laryngitis and hives from screaming.
168348 tn?1379360675 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 .... she used to get croup as a toddler/child all the time but it's been years. All I've read here says it's rare in an adult. Croup - http://www.medhelp.
Avatar f tn The infection is already over, and the remaining inflammation is taking its own time to go. I am not aware of any medicine that is known to make it fast. But in case they stumble upon a different diagnosis, it may be important. But it is unlikely. Since the three docs who already saw you didn't find anything, you can relax. Your ENT can peek into the larynx either with a mirror or scope. If it is wc, he may find only a lot of redness!
Avatar m tn You should be staying in close contact with the dr's office and make sure that they know that the medicine is not working, and that you are unable to eat or drink. Remember it is called the Art of Medicine. Sometimes there is a lot of guess work to diagnose the problem and trial and error to find what works to fix it. Keep working with your dr and hold the accountable to find the answer for you. Try to be as patient as you can, but not too much.
Avatar f tn I have severe asthma with acid reflux trigger. I have had acid reflux so bad that I developed severe laryngitis. An ENT told me it was reflux that caused my laryngitis by the inflamation pattern on my vocal cords. This is a specific type of reflux called laryngeal-pharyngeal reflux (LPR) for short. With this type of reflux, the acid comes up into the pharynx and sinuses and can be inahled. Symptoms are post nasal drip, chronic cough, wheezing (ocassionally) and possible infections.
Avatar n tn I always felt that the older you get, the less fun you go after. True for some people, I guess, but I'm trying to stay as young as possible for as long as possible. Sounds good to me! Anyway, gotta go. Merry Christmas, everyone!
Avatar m tn I don't have a perfect answer, but I have found during a recent 21-day fast with nothing but protein drinks (containing milk protein, but not milk), that it went away completely during that time! So, I conclude that it must be food related. As I add foods back in, I will monitor when the problem re-occurs.
242516 tn?1368227505 The seasonal flu vaccine is now available. This is the usual vaccine that protects against the three flu strains that have circulated in various forms over the last 30 years. The H1N1 vaccine may be available in late October. Priority groups for the first round of H1N1 vaccination will probably include persons 6 months - 24 years, household contacts of infants < 6 months, pregnant women, persons 25-64 years with chronic medical conditions, and health care workers and first responders.
645390 tn?1338558977 Really makes me miss my mom, that Manilow and his music. They goodness for texting. I had 2 friends come over this week, to make calls for me. I need some more made tomorrow. Pediatrician, docs, vet, bills, etc.. The rest of the week is full of the usual, open houses for the kids at the new schools, soccer practice , all the usual activities. I don't mean to keep harping on the voice, but it is DRIVING ME CRAZY!

2034625 tn?1392646892 Thinking about it further though and reading all of your comments and reasons for using one for airport transfers, I think I'm going to take your advice on that as well and go for it. Reconsidering what I wrote about my symptoms I'm wondering if this is a relapse connected to having TN still. I was in better shape not too long ago. DV, how was Hong Kong? I've always wanted to see it. Sounds like you're a pro at this too.
291885 tn?1404896807 Turned out, I had 2 major operations and just found out I have active EBV and CFS. I didn't go back to that doctor (who I had been seeing for 10 years) but wrote him a letter telling him what ended up being wrong with me and unprofessional it was for him to write me off as some depressed woman. I don't think doctors listen to women. We know our bodies better than anyone could and we know when something is wrong. Sorry this is so long.
392548 tn?1216614379 Wow! Itchy lungs...I have them and have had them since I was diagnosed with pneumonia last Tuesday! It's now been 10 days since it all started! My clue that I need to use my inhaler is that my upper back itches. I've talked to a nurse about this and she said that it made sense because the lungs are back there, they are irritated and I'm just aware of it! It goes away once I've used my inhaler...but this time with the pneumonia....this is a whole other thing entirely...
1310633 tn?1430227691 I have to say Mike, I like you better in the last couple of days than I have in a while. Your comments are actually making me LOL. Glad the "old Mike" is back. You seem A LOT lighter, in the last 5-6 days, than you were before. Whatever was going on that put you in a foul mood, I'm happy that it's been dealt with, and allowed the old Mike back in.
Avatar m tn I do notice that the more I go to the gym the better I feel so I hope this will stop soon.
Avatar f tn Because the endos jiggered with my meds so much, it may be that the myxedema (if that's what it is) isn't going to go away this time. I've read research that suggests that could happen, but I'm hoping for the best. It did, completely, within a couple of months of me going on meds the first time at 100 mcg T4 and 25 mcg Cytomel. Four months after the Cytomel was replaced with the generic, I developed hyper symptoms and my primary doc agreed that I should cut my T3 in half....
Avatar n tn I never had heartburn or acid reflux problems and then when I was pregnant with my 2nd baby (I was 36) suddenly 1/2 way through pregnancy, I began doing these weird burp/hiccups. After having the baby, they didn't go away. I have been doing them ever since on a regular basis. I can't believe so many OTHERS have this problem. I too, thought it was only me.
