192055 tn?1263559137 So after multiple doctors including an ENT I found out my phlegm problem in the throat is caused by acid reflux or in my case silent reflux which feels like post nasal drip. I got a prescription for acid reflux and I also used Prilosec but what helped the most by far are these simple things: - Pro-biotic pills (14 billion cultures) one pill, once a day - High pH alkaline water. Icelandic bottled water is 8.8 pH as well as Evamor. Look for any bottled water of 8 or higher pH.
Avatar dr m tn A small minority will progress into one of the classic complications of a common cold, such as a bronchitis or sinusitis. Any time I see patients in the office that come in with any of these classic symptoms or one of the more severe complications such as sinusitis, I always ask about the few days or weeks prior to the onset of the throat symptoms.
Avatar m tn The sinuses are holes in the bones of the face, and bones don’t have much blood going through them, and the blood circulation through the mucus membranes in the sinuses is not great, so it’s extremely difficult for antibiotics, which travel though the bloodstream, to reach the sinuses to fight the bacteria.
Avatar n tn I even had a endoscope done and they said the flap swells due to acid reflux and stress. Well I've never had acid reflux in my life so I still dont understand that. They gave me medicince for acid reflux and it seems to make it worse, I've tried three different types and they all seem to make it worse. I finally quite taking any of it and i seem to be doing a little better it still comes and goes and i try to ignore it but its really hard.
Avatar n tn i had been to two other ent's, another pulmologist and an asthma dr. whom none of them diagnosed the problem short of acid reflux. taking in or blowing out air fast causes them to spasm shut. i now can only breath thru my nose. they never did say what to do if i catch a cold.....nose spray i guess. inhalers, breathing tests, hurrying, walking up a long flight of stairs, wind and many things set it off. i too have awakened at nite with a choking sensation. or not being able to swallow.
Avatar n tn My wife thinks that I'm making things worse by turning all the clocks in the house (the ones that chime) off in order to avoid knowing the time so I don't panic by learning that I have ONLY a few hours left before I have to get up and get ready for work. Again, she thinks I am creating a great deal of anxiety for myself. Yes, I have a sleep study two years ago. I did not experience the tremor that night.
Avatar n tn Brainstem participants are the medulla and pons. Stimulation is also related to oxygen levels in the blood. With all that said, I have no answer (sorry!) but sometimes understanding the nuts and bolts helps. Like, with knowing all that, would seem like a nerve thing? Oxygen levels? Both of the nerves are found in the neck, and the Vagus travels alongside a pretty big neck muscle... hmmm...
Avatar n tn I am 52, female, slim, very healthy, runner, swimmer, healthy foods, occassional red wine, plenty of sleep, good blood work, low blood pressure, etc, picture of health. Have been this way forever. Went to Dr. in fall, they said I was healthy and would not even order a stress test. Same symptoms as others describe, can't get air all the way into lungs without straining or yawning. Now is constant, whether sitting at desk or running 5 miles.
Avatar n tn Now I also have extreme arthritis in my feet when it was only bothersome once in awhile in one of my feet. Now I have extreme acid reflux when it was only bothersome before surgery. This surgery seems to stir things that weren't so bothersome up in my eyes. You always hear the Drs. say the thyroid surgery couldn't do this and the thyroid surgery couldn't do that well bull to that because I didn't have these problems before hand.
