Avatar f tn is it at all possible to have some kind of allergy to the night air? my grandson is fine during the day, but as soon as the evening comes around, he starts coughing..and is sometimes up all night coughing...to the point of throwing up...then fine in the morning..he's three years old. regular cough remedies seem to do nothing..
Avatar f tn I know that my 2 year old has mild dust allergies and would often cough at night. Sometimes coughing can lead to them vomiting. I added a humidifier to his room for moisture (I live in a dry dusty climate and that was adding to the problem), and I damp sponge his walls, crib and other furniture at least every other day now. I also removed stuffed animals from his room and his area rug (he only has hardwood floors now). I keep closet doors closed as clothing can also collect dust.
Avatar m tn My 2 year old kid has been coughing most days at night? Anyone know what it could be? Anyone know how to get in touch with a pediatrician over the phone or web? Would not mind getting an opinion from home as my next appointment is not for a month.
Avatar m tn I was born with asthma and I believe any kind of steroid should be a last resort. Steroids only help with inflammation and I'm sure there are many things as parents and as doctors that you can do to help him out. Starting a kid on steroids only leads to future health problems, I am living proof. Flovent is a mild cortico-steroid, I don't know your child's situation, but it might be better than the alternative of needing dexamethasone or even worse prednisone later on.
Avatar f tn At the beginning of the month I got the upper respiratory virus that was going around so did the kids. all three of the kids stopped the coughing withing a week (so did the co-workers) I have asthma but I cannot get rid of the productive cough.
Avatar n tn but spend anywhere between 2-8 hours coughing at night.. it is not a dry cough, in fact he seems to be bringing up a lot of mucus.. people have described it as an old mans cough and I would agree. it all started when he has a severe throat and chest infection... which cleared up with antibiotics, but the cough stayed.. this was 6 MONTHS AGO.. and he has not had one night since where he hasnt coughed. I have taken him to the doctors more times then i can remember..
Avatar m tn 30pm and by 10pm she was up coughing. She didnt have any ice cream the night before and was never up coughing.. Same goes for our 5 year old give any type of milk before bed, 99% of the time she is up coughing. i said bedtime alot because thats usually only when the coughing happens, really kind of weird . Our 5 year old has chronic nasal problems and uses prescription nose spray. So is it really an allergy or something else??
Avatar f tn Does HPV cause coughing.
Avatar f tn I can never get enough sleep i wake up in the middle of these night and cant get back to sleep i have two kids and between the both their use no time for naps i am drained by 5:00 and I'm barely 15weeks
Avatar f tn benadryl in liquid is the best for my 5 yo boy for coughing u should try it
Avatar f tn My doctor stated there was a mild decrease in flow in the back but not in the front. He stated he wanted to refer me to a headache specialist to rule out anything else, although my headaches spund like chiari. He said Chiari is not black and white that he operated on an 18 year old with a much larger herniation but no headaches. I will get the actual report but this is where I stand now. I asked him if my wreck and whiplash casused me to become symptomatic.
Avatar n tn as i talk to more and more parents and looked up toddlers coughing while lying down on google, there are TONS of kids that are going through this too!!! and nobody knows the reason behind it.. they are the exact same symptoms with no concrete answers, and no meds are helping these children! my friend who is a 2nd grade teacher, said that in her school,classroom..
Avatar f tn t even cough that much at nap time. However, when she goes to bed at night, the coughing starts. It has been this way for several nights in a row and none of us are getting any sleep. I know I cannont give her any meds and I have tried the nasal drops and Baby Vicks. Does anyone have any suggestions? It is all because of the drainage. She coughs until she gags and occasionally spits up after a coughing spell.
Avatar f tn But none of my symptoms are the same as when I had strep before. Well last night I slept thru the night without waking up coughing but noticed myself waking up to me gasping to get air.. I woke up with no voice today. Last night I went to bed with a crazy migraine. But I haven't run much of a fever. Other than low grade.. I feel this tightness in my chest..my cough is dry tho.. anyone else experiencing this? When should I see doctor?
Avatar n tn s been happening for only about 4 months. I will wake up in the middle of the night and start choking and coughing. It feels like I can't breath, like I'm going to cough/choke to death. I will cough until I almost throw up (only thrown up once from it). No matter what I do, it only gets worse. During school, I start to cough and can't stop so I have to get up and walk out and have an 'attack' in the stairwell. PLEASE HELP!!!
Avatar n tn m done coughing my whole back hurts and it hurts to breathe. I wake up in the middle of the night hacking away and I don't know what this could be. I have 2 kids under the age of two so I can't stay in bed all day and I jus don't have the energy to do anything with this cough waking me up at night and making it uncomfortable to breathe...so what could this possibly be?
Avatar n tn Hello Medhelp.. I've gotten sick /flu/fever 3 weeks ago..Usually my coughing and body aches last about a week..but my coughing has not gone away. I am a smoker for 9 years..but never experienced coughing like this. I cough severley only at night while I'm sleeping..but then the coughing gets better during the day. This coughing has been lasting 3 weeks..and the severe coughing at night which wakes me up has been about 4 days. Is this a sign of HIV or STD?
Avatar n tn I want to know why I have these symptoms of constant feeling of something in throat and coughing up clear thick phlegm and waking up all times of night coughing and feel like a dryness in back of throat behind ears.
1194973 tn?1385503904 I am sure you ahve it but plain saline nasal spray is great, not a baby fan but works great. Now if she waks in the middle of the night after going to bed good, and runs a fever over 100.3 for more then a day ir caould be an ear infection, but they do not treat those with antibiotics usually anymroe and if she ever got one I suggest getting the antibiotic ear drops. They go to the area and work faster, less time on them and no threat of a yeast infection like from an oral antibiotic.
Avatar m tn m a 23 year old male, who takes Singuliar, 10mg, daily for asthma symptoms. However for the past few nights, I have been wheezing and coughing in bed at night to the point it disrupts my sleep, leaving me dragging the next day. During the day I do not wheeze and cough, just laying down at night in bed. Should I go see my doctor, or is this something due to change in weather (it has become noticably cooler in this area the past couple days), or something the medication will correct in time?
Avatar m tn light case of asthma can be treated by ventolin inhaler in aero chamber , I also have asthmatic kids however you should consult doctor because singular is a long acting drug
Avatar n tn Wash all the linens in your house and any clothing. Your kids can transfer the pet dander from hands to clothing to other home surfaces. Make sure you try the simple things like vacuuming her mattress and getting her a good mattress cover and a new pillow. I would say - get rid of the pets and get some sleep! As a mother of 4 with 3 under age 3 I can understand your need for sleep. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I would take her to her physician as soon as you are able, it is certainly not healthy for her to keep coughing and vomiting. The coughing will hurt her insides if it is too strong and vomiting will prevent her from getting her much needed nutrients from food, etc. I really am not able to tell you what it is, it could be a number of things, and, as I said, it would be best if she saw a doctor. Please let me know the outcome, I know she must be miserable.
Avatar f tn So, here is the hard thing to remember when our kids are coughing. Coughing is the body's way of expelling something out of our lungs. In this case, it's probably left over mucus from being sick. I'd have him take something like Mucinex which thins the bodily secretions. Yes, he will still cough but the phlegm will thin and hopefully move out easier. Coughs can linger for up to 2 moths. Once the bronchial tubes are irritated, it really can take that long to get over it.
