Avatar m tn m very concerned but would like to know if my strep throat could have caused the problem. This all may have started due to a night of heavy drinking and smoking cigarette's for my best friends bachelor party. Help would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn Thank you! My symptoms have gotten worse due to the weather and I will be going to see a doctor I'm going to increase my fiber intake and try to get rid of this infection! I'm glad to hear that adderall is not the cause it has helped me so much I would hate to stop taking it!
Avatar m tn The sore throat might have something to do with the lung infection, or it can be due to a infection in the throat, or could be due to smoking, or also could be due to acid reflux from the stomach. So it is hard for me to say. It is up to the doctor to look at your throat or do a culture to see if it is infected. The pain in the stomach may be due the other stomach problem they are giving you the diet for. I 'm not sure. Did you tell the doctor about the pain?
Avatar m tn no reason to think std as a cause of your sore throat this time of the year! Yes smoking can cause sore throats to linger. see your provider for a proper exam to see if it's just a virus you have causing your throat issues or something else going on like a sinusitis or even bacterial infection like strep.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The swelling and discomfort could be due to a throat infection. It's unlikely to be due to throat cancer. White patches are common in many throat infections. The sore throat and tonsillitis which your son had may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. Repeated salt water gargles will help.
Avatar f tn I dont have pain when i swallow but i do feel like i have to cough due to the fact that i have a lump in my throat. I also developed a sore on the same place were i have the lump that hasnt heal in over a walk but i didnt pay much attention to it due to the fact that i have acne but when i read throat cancer symptoms that really concerned me.
Avatar f tn also I had a poor immune due to frequent throat infections. Caused due to smoking. My life has changed upside down after this uti. At least in my mind.
Avatar m tn Also, white patches could be due to an infection or thrush. Please see your doctor for an accurate diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Hi, your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications.
Avatar f tn Your symptoms could be due to tuberculosis and you are being treated for the same. Tuberculosis is not caused due to smoking. It is an infection. Tuberculosis, or TB, is an infectious bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which most commonly affects the lungs. It is transmitted from person to person via droplets from the throat and lungs of people with the active respiratory disease.
Avatar n tn Aside from viral or bacterial infection, throat pain could also be due to throat injury or irritation from low humidity, smoking, air pollution, yelling, or postnasal drip. It can also be due to gastrrointestinal issues like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). If it has been one month already, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Direct clinical examination and additional diagnostic tests may need to be done. Take care and do keep us posted.

Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Most cases of sore throat can indeed be due to a viral infection, such as part of flu or colds. With rest and plenty of fluids, this usually subsides within a week. Recurrent sore throat, on the other hand, can be due to allergic reaction, irritation, smoking or from infectious mononucleosisis. Infectious mononucleosis or kissing disease, is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). It presents with fever, sore throat and fatigue.Check with your doctor for proper evaluation.
Avatar n tn I have hardly slept in weeks due to wheezing. It sounds as if it is right in the upper part of my throat. I try to clear it to no avail. I tried mucus products, which only led to a raw throat from the coughing. When I use an inhaler, it helps slightly for a short time only. Both of my ankles keep swelling up, but I believe this is mainly from being "upright" for such long periods and being overweight. Please help me!
Avatar n tn Blood in one’s phlegm is always abnormal. It can be from inflammation due to smoking, from infection, from the lining of your nose, throat or nasal polyps. It is most likely from bronchitis due to cigarette smoking, but it could be from anywhere in your upper and lower respiratory tracts, such as your nose, throat, mouth or voice box. Blood from any of these sites could accumulate over night and then be coughed up with the phlegm, in the morning.
Avatar n tn Hence, from your history it suggests that you are experiencing airflow obstruction due to hyper reactivity to marijuana. Allergy in the form of angioedema can be possible, which is due to hypersensitivity reaction (type 1). In such cases, subsequent exposure to it can cause complications. Hence, you need to quit the smoke completely. You need to keep always antihistaminic with you. You also need to rule out other allergens which you are sensitive to.Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment. In the meantime practice good breathing exercises, humidify your room and do steam inhalations.
Avatar f tn last year I went to a doctor due to a sinus infection and was diagnosed with having COPD, and quit smoking cold turkey(doc said smoking would make it worse but was not the cause of copd) now I have a constant tickle in my throat and most of the time only clear or white mucus comes up and every once in awhile a little blood comes up also. what could be causing the constant tickle. its irritating.

Avatar f tn deep tongue kissing with a female known to have many partners and lady boyfriend was onto heroin (supposively just smoking it). My doctor said this wasn't a risk even if she had HIV, along with my mental health counselor and aids clinic in town. My tests: 1. Oral Swab 4 weeks post (negative) 2. EIA HIV 1/2 blood tests 8 weeks post (negative) 3. Oral Swab 83 days post (negative) 4.
Avatar f tn its because of the smoking hun your basically killing your lungs, you have to start drinking lots of water and stop smoking, use something else that can substitute it like me i was a smoker for 6 years i quit and what i used to substitute was "ICE" and it worked great. Every time i wanted to smoke i would run and get ice trust me!
