What causes coughing when lying down

Common Questions and Answers about What causes coughing when lying down


Avatar f tn when you lie down, phlegm or mucus trickles down from your nose into your throat which could be causing your symptoms. Are yu breathless too when lying down? That would point towards a cardiac cause for your symptoms. Let us know about the chest xray and CT scan of your sinuses reports. You should try some steam inhalation, saline nasal drops, and oral antihistamne medications and see if it helps with your symptoms. Keep us posted on how you are doing and if you have any doubts. Regards.
Avatar n tn During the day, when I am up and around, it reverts to some slight shortness of breath and slight pressure in the right lung and a tickle/some pressure in the throat). At night,when I first lay down, I have a little shortness of breath but can get to sleep. After about 2-3 hours I suddenly can't breathe and my right lung aches badly, so it wakes me up. I feel like the throat may be constricting also.
Avatar n tn Come back to report your progress, so others may benefit. The effect is gradual and you will experience coughing initially, when doing ujjayi. Ujjayi pranayam Procedure: While breathing in, tighten throat(contract glotis) and there will be sound from back of throat, then drop chin(rest chin on chest), hold breath as long as possible.Then chin up, close right nostril and slowly breath out through left nostril.
Avatar n tn I get palps when lying down in bed at night or in the evening sitting in the computer chair. Since I have been Exercising and losing weight I get them more often! I read somewhere else that taking a deep breath and exhaling several times in a row helps me (increasing oxygen content in blood?) and also tensing every muscle in your body and then relaxing (like a mini orgasm?) also helps me and hope these things help you all here, good luck and have a stress free life!!
Avatar m tn I thought it was a contentment thing as he only did it when actually in the process of lying down. He slowed down a lot in his last few months which I attributed at the time to his age. I thought he was just slowing down as he grew older. Unfortunately Darcy passed away suddenly on Christmas Eve after being diagnosed with Cancer the day before. It was only the week leading up to Christmas that he displayed any other signs of something being wrong (lethargy and went off his food 2 days prior).
Avatar m tn I always question the RPR type test as they have a high false negative but you don't have the symptoms for secondary syphilis or even tertiary. When you first got tested for HIV what what the time frame after exposure? Which test was it at that time? I am also surprised they don't culture your folliculitis. It is strange to me to run all the expensive lab tests and not do a simple culture. Doctors love to do the expensive lab tests first.
Avatar n tn This also happens when I bend over to the floor and especially when I pick up something while bending over. What is the cause of this problem?
Avatar n tn Hello, I am wondering what are the various causes of having palpable preauricular nodes, the nodes that are right in front of your ears? I woke up the other morning and noticed when I pulled on my earlobes, that there were bumps on each side that aren't visible without pulling on my lobes but I can feel them when I do and I tested them by putting my fingers on my jaw/cheek line and opening and closing my jaw and got that clicking feeling.
Avatar m tn It got more frequent and usually when I was sitting down or lying down. Just over a month ago I got a series of sore throats, they’d get better then another would start after a couple of days. Whether or not I got a sore throat seemed to depend on if I lay flat on my back. I started to prop myself up and the sore throats stopped, but the cough is still there.
Avatar f tn The pain in my head is relieved by lying down. The doctor was asking me if I was going through some kind of withdrawels. REALLY???? NOPE! I'm just really, really sick. I have been put on prescription cough medicine, including prescription cough syrup. It is helping, and my cough is now coming from my chest.....as if things are losening up. I really don't know if this is a cold or a severe allergy reaction. It only happens this time of year.
Avatar m tn I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
Avatar n tn We went to a throat specialist who could not find anything, and we cannot pinpoint what exactly triggers the coughing attacks. Sometimes they occur when we are eating, and sometime when he is doing nothing at all. The coughs sound very deep and do actually hurt his chest on occassion from coughing so hard. Any ideas of what this could be or where we should go next?
171267 tn?1199874189 Just sit slowly, and sit down before lying down. Try your right side before your left when lying down too, some people notice the left side makes it worse, or at least more noticable. You'll find this comes and goes, most likely. Sometimes it won't happen and sometimes it will (usually right when you've stopped noticing ;) You sound normal, if anxious, to me. I also have anxiety issues. Many of us share that in common as well. Hang in there.
Avatar f tn It would make sense since you have these problems when you lay down or after dinner. I was told that it's what I have. I haven't stuck by my diet well enough to see if it actually works or not yet. The diet *****.
Avatar f tn ) I meant that when I actually put all of my real symptoms together, seeing all that I have written, I know if I do live 20 years, they're going to be hard years.
Avatar m tn mucus in my throat (it might last many months) and combined with a coughing (it will last again 3 months?). How hard my life is? I hate Mucus and/or coughing. Could you give me some ideas or encouragement? Kind regards.
Avatar n tn Then wake again an hour later, drink water and go back to sleep again. However, some nights I will have a little cough when I lie down and then sleep all the way through the night Also sometimes when my throat is really itchy and I have had a bad day of coughing, I find I cannot talk much without coughing inbetween sentences and talking to people becomes difficult to do. Finally, other symptoms that occur at the time of a coughing fit which can occur several times a day..to all day.
Avatar n tn Now I know how people can drown on a drop of water. When it finally went down, I had a coughing fit so bad, well, let's just say I hope to never experience that again! The allergist I saw did say something about my throat being very reactive from so much coughing, so I guess that's why the choking. I do find some relief from using a throat spray with some kind of anesthetic in it, followed by lozenges with anesthetic, like benzocaine. Make sure it contains the anesthetic.
Avatar n tn I cough alot as well, esp when lying down, laughing or for no reason at all. I am so very tired of it. I take advair 2x a day, rescue inhaler & aciphex for gerd.
Avatar f tn Right of this moment I cannot sleep since I find it hard to breathe when lying down facing up or if lying side ways. And I get chest pains when coughing plus a headache & tummy ache. What should I do? I am sleepy since its 4.30am here in Nauru Pleasant Island and I cannot sleep because of my breathing difficulty. Should I stay awake and see the Doctor first thing in the morning or should just sleep it off while sitting? Please help me out, I am really tired. Ta!
Avatar m tn When I am lying down is when it happens. I have had it happen before. I'm on oxygen, and I have spells of hard coughing.
Avatar f tn But I thought I would express my missery. Nothing I have done seems to make any difference. Lying down, sitting up, cough medicine, drinking water, eating and nasal spray.
Avatar n tn This causes acid to buld up and when food piles on top of food, the acid has no where to go but back up in your throat. So yes you have acid reflux and for a good reason. There are some things you can do. www.jacksongastroenterology.com. gastro doctors use this website for diet for gastroparesis. Follow it closely. Do not use Step 1 longer than 3-5 days. Another thing you can do and you may of heard of this. But it is actually true. 1 tbs. apple cider vinegar and 8 oz.
Avatar n tn Sometimes the pain can also be on my back about 20cms down, 15cms in, same pain as my chest. I also find that when I stand up whether it be slowly or fast I get really dizzy as if I'm going to pass-out (i know this is common with people but may link to my problems) and I find that even when sat down I can get really spaced out and quite confused like that feeling before you're just about to pass out but without the dizzyness, kind of like when you are drunk.
Avatar n tn Lived with it for about a year, coughing escalated and had an EGD but looked like no problems. Coughing is worsened after eating and when lying down. Does not occur during sleep. Coughing is irritating and wearing to him who has to do it and me who has to listen to it. What to do next?
Avatar dr m tn Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right? When you see your doctor, throat redness and irritation and swollen glands are noted, confirming even further that you’re in the middle of a standard upper respiratory infection, or the common cold. Typically, it’ll last anywhere from 3-5 days. A small minority will progress into one of the classic complications of a common cold, such as a bronchitis or sinusitis.
Avatar n tn Not when I am drinking water or eating, but just during normal swallowing. It doesn't click when my head is down or up, but it clicks when I am looking straight. If I put my fingers just above adams apple I can feel a click. Please help me to identify what it could be.
Avatar f tn I now developed terrible coughing fits, especially when I'm lying in bed at night (oddly, especially when lying on my left side?) and have developed phlegm in my chest. I'm wondering if there could be something in my room that causes this. I went to the pulmonologist and he did a sleep study on me, which showed I have mild sleep apnia, so I now have a cpap machine, which I'm having a hard time using.
Avatar n tn What does it mean if i have a pain on my upper left side of my head, it feels like that headband pain when you wear a headband and it leaves this really bad pain. when i push my finger on that spot it hurts. i also get these weird stomach problems where my stomach petrutes out like im pregnant and it hurts and no im pregnant and theres no chance that i might be. my doctor asked me that allready:) I'm only 16 and i dont know why these things are happening...!!!!!
15607012 tn?1442453350 I do my best when my blood sugar is 115 - 120 mg/dl. When it gets down to 90 mg/dl I can tell because I feel different and I get a bit shaky. When my blood sugar gets in the 80s I begin to have trouble walking and I slur my speech. When my blood sugar gets in the 70s I have trouble thinking or making good decisions. When my levels get in the 60s it's clear that it's a medical emergency at that point.
