Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat and quitting smoking


Avatar f tn 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 I just quit smoking (1 or 2 pks per week).
Avatar n tn I do notice a weird little dry cough, and a sore-throat, every nowand again.
Avatar m tn i am smoking since 3yrs and now i decided to quit smoking,and the first week was a bit ok, but in the second week i feel like pain in my throat when i breathe,i am really worried about this. is the a serious problem .please help me, as i cannot share my info with my parents.
Avatar m tn Several days later (still in bed) that disappeared and I had a sore throat on the right side. Three days later that disappeared and my throat was then sore on the left side. After 3 weeks in bed I was exhausted and weak. However: I realised that I hadn't smoked in 3 weeks so was probably experiencing side effects along with the flu. The difference this time is also that, after 4 years of menopause and no symptoms, it hit me almost overnight. (Sorry, this is going to be a long one!).
Avatar f tn ) that could put two and two together. Just a WAG here, but perhaps quitting smoking made you anxious and created a cause and affect situation. Smoking does play a role in how your body functions and its affect on blood vessels, even psychological addiction. A salad contains a lot of raw vegetables (a good one does anyway) and raw vegetables do cause gas if your intestines are inflamed. And if quitting smoking is causing you anxiety what's it going to affect first?
Avatar m tn The last straw for me was going to a party of 30 people and I was the only smoker. I quit smoking less than 24 hours later. Quitting smoking will be the best thing you ever did. I hope to read this 1 year from now and know the quitting was best thing I could have ever done for myself as an adult. Good luck !!
Avatar n tn Get a lot of rest. Drink plenty of fluids. Gargle with warm salt water or some other home-made gargle to wash away mucus and irritants. Avoid smoking cigarettes. Eat largely soft foods for a couple of days to avoid irritating your throat. Suck non-prescription cough drops Apply a warm heating pad, compress or salt plaster to your throat. Try steam inhalations.
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 n tn Hello, My name is Melissa, I am 27 years old and I have been having a soreness in my chest and throat (it feels like a sore throat feels, but in my chest as well) when I breathe in for, oh, about 10 months now. It comes and goes.....when it goes I have this delusion that it's ok to smoke again, and then when I feel the soreness, I get scared and quit....the cycle continues. I have been smoking for 11 years and am having a horrible time quitting, even with this pain.
Avatar m tn hi, welcome to the forum, lisavette . as you said you had this condition (borderline emphysema) i would think the best thing is going to the doctor , yeah :) and about the fact that you can't stop smoking..well, i've learned that when we must stop harming ourselves with our behaviour because our health is at high risk and we seem to be unable ....
Avatar n tn I was wondering if this is a common adverse effect of quitting smoking? And if that is what it is, what can I do to deal with it? I've been drinking tons of water and started and exercise program but it doesn't seem to be helping. Will it go away on it's own, or should I go to the doctor? Additionally, I had heard that when you quit smoking it was common for a strong increase in appetite and weight gain.
Avatar n tn I have pain in my throat - seemingly in the trachea or esophagus (for several weeks) thats very mild and comes and goes, sometimes its like a sore throat, sometimes its like a short (3 seconds or less) "pinch" or fiery pain; it seems to show up in slightly different areas (also comes up in my chest at times), I've done alot of online cancer research which just makes me more anxious (I didn't have any ear pain until I read that its a symptom - now I sometimes do...

Avatar m tn However a few weeks ago i got a sore throat and a bit of an infection and didnt stop smoking during that time.. which worsened the mucous production and caused my mucous to become salty in taste.. made my throat feel very swollen and irritated.. I told my family he said its most likely just allergies and getting over the infection and i decided to take it upon myself to quit smoking until these symptoms disappear at the very least..
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'm so sick! What's some remedies for a horrible sore throat? Or what can I take? Please help it's horrible! Lol TIA!
Avatar n tn Not a smoker. Just a cougher at the moment. I skipped the smoking and went straight to the hacking to save time and money and so I could glare self righteously at people smoking in "no smoking" areas.

Avatar m tn May just be sore from healing after quitting smoking and was very sensitve when he started smoking again.
948349 tn?1294383837 It's not just my lungs that are sore but also my bronchioles, and my trachea too... I had a strange sensation in my throat too... I had't ever felt like this after quitting smoking usually just getting cravings and going through withdrawals. And strangely I'm not coughing either or have much phlegm... I wonder maybe my cilia in my lung linings are destroyed and can't move this stuff out any more? But this time I'm sick and going through painful withdrawals...
Avatar n tn But I'm a hypochondriac as my dad says and well now I'm having panic attacks because of my sore throat. Warm feels good. I quit for 3 weeks before this and my throat hurt then too I just had one cig and then quit again. I'm just worried ya know? I should still be fine right?
Avatar n tn I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
17913390 tn?1461342383 During the few days i felt OK but on the fourth day i experienced sore throat, runny nose, muscle aches and other bizarre symptoms which are similar to flu but without the fever and so on. This gradually got better and i actually started to feel great. I was out running and so on and apart from the insomnia, weird dreams and night sweats that were i felt in a good place.
Avatar m tn I'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.
