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 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 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.
966444 tn?1254100169 For the past three week I have been sick with a cold beat the cough which lasted a week sore throat lasted a week, now my throat is still raw and my glands have been swollen for two weeks going on three. It seems I am constantly clearing my throat! Is this normal, why am I sick now all the time?
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 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.
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 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 f tn Hello, for the past week i have been having a sore throat. It isn’t causing any pain nor is it causing any difficulty swallowing or breathing. It becomes alright when I drink any liquid, warm or cold for a little but then returns. I should also say that I am a moderate smoker. Could this be related to the smoking or something else.
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.
948349 tn?1294380237 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 f tn You need to get off all nicotine once and for all and unfortunately that will be just as hard as quitting smoking. But you got to do it!
Avatar f tn It presents with fever, sore throat and fatigue.Check with your doctor for proper evaluation.Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn The stomach acid can also irritate the lining of your nose, causing post-nasal drip, which can lead to a sore throat. The pressure and burping can be due to GERD, as well. There are probably other things that can cause these symptoms, and perhaps there is more than one thing going on. I'm not a medical professional, so take what I say with a grain of salt.
Avatar m tn On around 4th feb after smoking and some beers, i got sore throat which quickly developed into fever. Lasted until 13th, Now again on 24th feb i woke up sneezing and later yesterday on 25th it developed into mild fever. Now i just have cough and almost no fever. Just have stuffy nose. Before this during december i had a cold/fever. I've been getting sick quite frequently then i'm supposed to for a 23 year old guy. I am fat and i get very little excercise due to my job.
Avatar m tn I have been having that sore throat for the past 6 months. my symptoms are as follow. feel like there's something in the back of my throat like a little tiny rock going up and down but when i am trying to spit it out it will not come out.also, i have been very stressed out lately and i always eat late before i go to bed. Recently a lot of mucus has been running in the back of my throat,especially when i am taking that natural remedy called bragg organic apple cider vinegar.
Avatar m tn Hi im 20 years old i an occasional smoker and 2 days ago i started feeling my throat right and rough....next day got worse..i started having mucas and a little blood....does this sound like a smokers throat or something more ?
Avatar f tn 18, I remember when.... Now I am 50yrs and I've been smoking for 34+yrs and I can't figure out how to quit. My wife smokes and has no intention of quitting, which only compounds the problem. I'd tried quitting on several occasions. I'm here to tell you QUIT while you can, it only gets harder and harder over the years. If you don't get hit by a bus or some such, smoking will kill you in any one of a myriad of ways.
Avatar f tn I have ringing in ears, constant cough and reoccuring hoarsness snd sore throat as with always fatigue. For 3 months now I have had pain in my chest. My doctor did a CT scan and a 2cm nodule was picked up on my left thyroid. It is a single nodule. My thyroid messured 4cm on the left and 5cm on the right. They did a FNA which came back suspicous. I have an appointment on 9-23 with surgeon as my doctor suggested immediate removal.
