throat

Avatar n tn I feel congested in my throat & upper chest area, & my upper back hurts a bit, and there is shortness of breath.. What could it be.
Avatar n tn Have had chest congestion and mucus draining down my throat periodically for last couple of years. At some point I lose my voice as well. Is this an allergy? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/283754'>chronic sinus congestion, plugged ears, chest congestion, coughing</a>.
Avatar n tn My soar throat went away but I developed sinus congestion which also left after about a day. I am now left with chest congestion and a cough. As with chest congestion I have previously experienced, I cough up a slight amount of phlegm. I am just now today experiencing a sensation of fluid slowly building up in my lower throat/chest when I am breathing and must swallow to clear this fluid like sensation only to have it return moments after. Is this a normal symptom of a simple chest cold?
Avatar n tn I have nasal, throat and chest congestin. When I sit I am fine but if I walk I have difficulty breathing. Sometimes I am near normal and other times it gets worse. I flew into New York from Sacramento, California thinking I had allergies but I cannot shake them this time.
Avatar n tn I had what I thought was a cold for a few days stuffy nose sore throat but now my chest is all congested and its kinda hard to breathe sometimes especially after doing something. I've been coughing for three days straight been taking an expectorant but haven't had too much luck yet... I think i'm running a fever not super high though... and I just feel super tired all the time...Any idea of what I can do to feel better?
Avatar n tn if it is, then dont let it drain into the back of your throat as much as you can, blow your nose as much as you can also, dont just suck it back in and swallow it, this can cause the mucus to go straight into your lungs, which happend to me, and yeah. and everytime you cough, try to spit also, and drink alot of sprite. that helps break it up. and just put some vicks vaporub on your chest. that helps me all the time... goodluck lol. it *****.
Avatar m tn I end up with a sore throat for a few days, often accompanied with occasional difficulty swallowing (like a swollen throat), trouble breathing (not sure if chest congestion or because of a swollen throat) and nasal congestion. This has happened whether it's with a regular partner or if it's just a one-time hook up with someone. It seems more likely to happen after aggressive sex, but it happens plenty of times without the sex being aggressive.
Avatar f tn The pharmacists told me straight DM with nothing else in it, vaporub for congestion, and hot water with pasteurized honey for sore throat. I'll be honest..not as good as nyquil, but I survived.
Avatar f tn What it feels like is the chronic post nasal drip I have has caused congestion in my upper chest. However, the weird part is, I really have no cough, and the occasional cough has never brought anything up. In the past, if my chest begins to feel this way, it is followed by the painful cough and coughing stuff up. I would not call what I have sometimes as pain, it feels more like irritation. When I am active, as well as when I drink a lot of water, it seems to be much better.

Avatar m tn This past weekend I had a pretty bad cold/flu. I was in bed with a fever, body aches, cough, etc. These symptoms only really lasted for two days. On Monday, my body was back to feeling fine, but the congestion was still there, which I expected. Now three days later, though, the congestion is not letting up at all. I don't really have any nasal congestion (unless I am coughing a lot and have to blow my nose), it's all in my chest.
Avatar n tn Have you tired any quick fixes for the congestion? Nasal or chest congestion? Most of the over-the-counter stuff can't be used long term, but most in my experience give immediate relief, and help one get some sleep which is basic to getting well. Hope you are doing better. If you have some specific question please state it.
Avatar n tn i have had a cough for quite some time, i feel like im strangling on the phlem in my throat..
Avatar f tn I had a severe cough and drainage down my throat and congestion in my chest. I went to a doctor and he said I had bronchitis and gave me a cough suppressant. At the time I thought he was correct but then I realized he never addressed the fact that my mucus is greenish in color. I feel I have an infection also. But the real discomfort comes from having a very dry feeling in the top back of my throat and the gagging and feeling that I cannot swallow even saliva.
Avatar m tn I have nasal congestion, drainage in the throat, and tightness in the chest. I had a chest x-ray which was clear. I also had an ECG which showed the R wave diminishing. My stress test was positive but the cardiologist felt, after an exam, that this was a false positive. So now I will have a CT of the heart, but I am wondering if this is strictly allergies. My chest is tight and when talking I have to cough. Sometimes the cough is without talking.
Avatar f tn Burping, Lump in throat, Chest congestion, etc -- help!!</a>.
Avatar n tn I know my body naturally coughs to expel the mucus, so I think my problem is the mucus and not the cough. Please help my throat, chest and back are really sore from coughing so much.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing chest and throat pressue after a cold. I am not coughing a lot but still have a lot of chest congestion. I have to clear my thoat a great deal. I feel tightness in my chest, throat, and upper back area. I seem to be experiencing some indigestion as well. I am a fitness instructor and have been teaching my intense cardio classes with less difficulty over the past few weeks. The pressure has been ongoing for the last 3 weeks.
Avatar f tn I been having coughing, chest congestion, nasal congestion and coughing up nasty stuff (mucus) ewww. What can I take or what can I do to fight this bug? Because I feel hopeless.

Avatar f tn It just seems so weird to me to have sudden heavy congestion in my throat and chest with no stuffy nose or other symptoms. As for the achy body, I think that's probably just from the violent coughing (so bad it makes me gag). I'm taking Mucinex now and tylenol for pain, and I'm feeling a little better. But how can avoid this in the future, and could this be a sign of something more serious?
369994 tn?1225733799 I spent a week getting better being able to go to work, though still had congestion and phlegm in my chest, and a dry cough. Now 3rd week, I am feeling worse, NO fever, but chest congestion, dark green/yellow phlegm a constant dry crackly cough, itchy throat, and runny nose. Should I go to the doctor, since there is still some kind of infection in my upper respiratory system?
Avatar n tn I have what is discussed below also. How long does it last? I have been sick for 7 days now and coughing painfully for 5 days. I have been using using cefzil and phenavent for 3 days now, but it doesn't seem to be helping. The cough is very painful and the phlem feel "stuck". How long does this last??? "Are their any indicators if an infection is bacterial? I began feeling ill 5 days ago.
Avatar f tn I am now 35 weeks with my first and I have managed to come down with a terrible cold. Chest congestion cough runny nose sore throat whole 9 yards. I feel miserable and exhausted. I talked to my dr and said to take some benadryl and that's about it. Any other suggestions? I am miserable and don't wanna go into labor being sick!
Avatar m tn Day 4- chills and aches went away, no night sweat, no fever, but dry cough, sore throat, sneezing and chest congestion; Day 5- chills came back, had another night sweat (my neck, chest, and upper back were drenched), minor sore throat, dry cough and congestion. Day 6-Day 13- lingering dry cough. On Day 10- I went to the doctor and he prescribed me antibiotics for the cough. It has been a week since Day 13 and all symptoms have subsided with the exception of some congestion in my throat.
Avatar m tn s causing the tightness in my throat? (the tightness is not so bad, i can breathe and eat and swallow and drink just fine). It is just uncomfortable. Thank you for your help.
