Avatar f tn Well anyways im getting a bad cough and its causing a sore throat. I read online that this is caused by quitting smoking cause ur body is healing and what not. Well just curious if any other former smokers went through this and how long it lasted. Does cough med help in this situation? I cant sleep its so bad. Coughing up phlegm every few minutes its soo annoying especially since i just got over a cold... I only have 4 wks left til my c section and just want to feel better by then.

Avatar m tn Now i am in 8th week after quit smoking. Now days i have throat pain while swallow and rarely phlegm coming out (no cough). Along with that slight cold (but not continuous). There is slight body pain from on yesterday. Before i used to breath through mouth. But from on last couple of weeks i trying to practice to breath through nose. Yesterday i found some while particle on palatine tonsil.
Avatar n tn When I have a cold they are more frequent and usually come with a sore throat as well. I have heard many suggestions... like bread/food particles stuck in tossil tissue, post nasal drip (mucus) but I have not spoken to the ENT.
Avatar f tn I have one the electric things you can pick any flavor, put it in there, and smoke it. But it hurts my chest more and makes my throat sore. So I don't even use it. I think if I set my mind to it I can do it. Its kind of like loosing weight. You have to change your mind set, and I lost a lot of weight before I got pregnant.
Avatar n tn if thats the case YES is effects your cells in the throat and also the cervix of females.... iwould suggest quitting..
Avatar m tn Hi, I am 61 and spit bright red blood first thing after a nights sleep, I do not bring up any during the day even having coughed and maybe brought up phlem. I do have a sore thoat most of the time but do not have a problem swallowing food. In march 2009 I stopped smoking after a second heart attack. My sense of smell is now almost non existent, although this is supposed to improve after quitting cigs ?.
Avatar m tn After six years of smoking regularly about three to four packs a week, I finally put my foot down this year and said that I'm going to quit. I'm 25 years old, and I threw away all my lighters, cigarettes and any desire to go buy any. I've been smoke-free for two weeks and the quitting process is coming along successfully. Here's my issue. It's been a few months since I've hit the gym. Along with quitting smoking, I'm trying to get in real good shape.
Avatar n tn i have herd that it is normal because your throat and lungs are clearing. So my question is is the itchy throat and cough normal after quiting smoking and when i smoke hooka am i causing damage or why is the itch and cough a little worse when i do hooka.
Avatar m tn I m having ear pain and sore throat and also have sore mouth, my tounge, upper area of mouth and also hav pain behind the ears...been like this for a week now. I m worried as I had a pap smear wich came back with hpv and ascus and I also hav large fibroids wich I m getting treatment for. My great worry now is that is this sore throat related to hpv as hpv can also cause head and neck cancer. I will be glad if someone can help me on it.
Avatar m tn m 26 and Ive unfortunately have smoked about 9 years (pack a day to half a pack now, tried quitting MANY times but always fall back into it). Ive had a sore throat for a few months now. Not like a painful sore throat but more just noticeable. The back of my throat is red (has been for a long, long time) but usually didnt accompany any swallowing issues. When I swallow, I can only really feel it happening on the left side. The right side feels like it doesnt move or that something is there.

Avatar n tn Posted By ellen on August 05, 1999 at 14:29:34 I've been a pack-a-day smoker for the last 13 years (i'm now 30). I've always been in pretty good health, although I do occasionally have anxiety attacks. I've attempted quitting smoking a few times and always go back, however, I have cut down to two cigarettes a day in the last week.
Avatar m tn When I consult my doctor he told me nothing to worry and there is no symptoms of cancer and he given some tablets and he told me that after quitting smoking the irritation is continuing . Even now I am facing the problem of throat irritation and lower neck tightness. I am not facing any problem in swallowing, weight loss etc... Totally I am fearing of cancer. It may be pshycological .
Avatar m tn your SORE THROAT is NOT hiv related. accept your negative result and move on with your life. "until you are in a monogamous relationship, where BOTH of you have tested...ALWAYS use condoms for penetrative vaginal / anal intercourse. sex lasts a few minutes...
Avatar n tn Not only that but your lungs are trying to correct themselves after quitting smoking. Get a complete pft, not just a spirometry done and request a ct as well. These will tell you everything you need to know. And remember, for some reason only 25% of smokers get emphysema but chronic bronkitis is under the copd umbrella as well. No need to worrying until you know you have something to worry about. Congrats for quitting! I am still struggling with that.
Avatar m tn On this past monday (June 13/16) I had arterial leg surgery and picked up a cold - complete with stuffy nose, sore throat and today I have lung pain. It feels like my lungs and windpipe are burnt. We just put the air conditioners in, but they did not bother me last year. Has this ever happened to anyone else so far into quitting?
Avatar n tn It is common for a person to cough more for a while after quitting smoking, than he/she was while smoking and this may go on for several months or more. So don’t let this discourage you. You have made an excellent decision to quit smoking – please stick with it. Your nose, eye and voice symptoms are nothing to be worried about. That is, you haven’t hurt yourself.
Avatar m tn Hi, Someone has played mischief on you, there is no evidence to prove that sore throat can be reduced by sucking the genitals. There are many causes for sore throat, like long standing sinus problems, gastric reflux, recurrent infection of the pharynx and tonsils. Get yourself evaluated from an apt ENT specialist and also try taking medicines depending upon the cause. Drink plenty of warm water, avoid smoking and eating greasy food. Any more doubts you are welcome.
