Anxiety :: Excess Mucus

May 5, 2016

I'm 69 & only have had 2 significant health issues over the past 7 or so  years:-

1) BPH with a permanent indwelling catheter for 3 years..

2) chronic mucus production.

the BPH has been recently sorted with a TURP but the mucus problem is still ongoing.& seems to be triggered if i want to go out or do some simple task in the house - i just cough it up  to the point of being sick - the mucus is clear, sticky & sometimes frothy.

strangely the "attacks" never happen in anyone's presence & when i was in hospital for the TURP & before that for 2 weeks suffering from urine retention "the attacks" never happened at all.(??)

Sore Throat :: Tonsillitis - Excess Mucus Causing Swallowing Difficulties

I am 16 years old and have been experiencing my latest (and worst yet) bout of tonsillitis for the past 4-5 days. I have been taking soluble aspirin and paracetamol, and today my GP prescribed me some soluble penicillin antibiotics to help fight it off. However, I am experiencing lots of thick green mucus in my throat and a yellow-greenish coating of mucus on my tongue that just will not go away no matter how many times I spit it out. The mucus is causing many difficulties for me in terms of swallowing food and drink, as (with drinks) either I swallow some of the mucus with the fluid or the drink mixes with the mucus and ends up stuck in my throat. 

I am going on holiday to Egypt for a week on the 26th June so I really need to get this cleared up before then! Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can alleviate the pain and get rid of all this mucus?

Eyes :: Excess Watering - 2.5 Years Old Kid

My 2.5 year old kid has recently developed excess watering in his left eye. Its been about 3 weeks now since he has it. The whole of his eye gets filled up with water, in about 5 minutes after he wipes out. I have not seen the water roll down the cheek though.

My doctor gave me ciprofloxacin eye drops, but has not helped. The main problem was, being a kid, he never allows me or my wife to touch his eye. We have to apply those drops only when he was asleep.

I am planning to take him to an eye specialist this weekend. Any suggestions are welcome.

Sexual Stimulation :: Excess Masturbation And Weak Erection

I am doing masturbation since 15 year,i am 28 now,sometimes i could make 4 times in about 3 hours.

Lastly,i have noticed softening of my erection,with no much pleasure neither during masturbation or even at time of ejaculation.
something is wrong,i am so worried.

I am noticing dilated veins on the penis,maybe the blood is shifting to these dilated veins,so it is taking from the blood that goes to the corpori?!!
maybe there's another explanation.

My erection is weak,and i think it is due to excessive masturbation i did last period. Any treatment for this?

if i will apply ice on the dilated veins daily for example,would it help yo get these veins not dilated again?

i know that this may sound funny,but i really want to resume what i lost.

Fluoxetine :: Excess Worry, Feeling Guilty For Hardly Reason, Mood Swings

I've been on prozac 40mg 5 weeks and my mood is getting so much improved. But I am having mood swings, and I worry about everything. I feel guilt out of nowhere. I'm in college and I even feel guilty for going to see my partner 15 minutes away because of fear of my parents being upset. Because they gave me impression that they would like me to see my partner over the weekend and not on the weekdays. I am almost paranoia. I have this feeling of anxiety and guilt. Is this a side effect? Will this go away? It was not this way before.

Venlafaxine Withdrawal - Dizziness, Dry Mouth, Excess Sleepiness, Confusion, Mental Oblivions

I've been on venlafaxine for about 2 years, taking a dose of 150 mg per day. I used to take the generic pills which are cheaper. To be honest I didn't even know there was an 'original' one, named Effexor, until last friday.

When I changed town I continued the treatment with another doctor, and he suggested i came off the drug. I thought I'd try, and for the first month I reduced from 150mg to 75mg. Nothing wrong there. Then I took another step and reduced from 75 to 37,5mg and in the fourth day I collapsed.

I had this breakdown, feeling all kind of weird symptoms: dizziness, dry mouth, excess sleepiness, confusion, mental oblivions (memory lapses), total apathy, total loss of libido. 

I got really scared and tried to go back on my own since I was off town and couldn't talk to the doctor.

I took for 3 days the 150 mg pills but that didn't help. I consulted another doctor and he suggested to take a 107,5 mg dose (75+37,5) for 20 days and then restore the original 150 mg dose afterwards.

It's been 6 days since I started taking this dose and I still feel awful! I feel like I'm not the same anymore!!! It's the strangest thing ever. I had to ask for a job-absent license cause I can't work in these conditions.

One other thing is that a moved from the generic pills to the Effexor (from Pfizer - Wyeth) - the doc suggested that - and I don't know if that is making things worse...

I feel really awkward, useless, like my brain is in slow motion. I've been thinking about going' cold turkey since taking back venlafaxine did not help.

Rhinitis :: Excessive Mucus Production

My problem is the excessive production of mucus. It has been going on for about 12 years or so (I am now 58) and it is getting worse. Embarrassingly, it happens mainly when I eat (usually halfway through eating a large main meal, but also when eating hot and spicy food). It's embarrassing because nobody wants to share a meal with somebody who has a perennially runny nose.

It also happens, bizarrely, when I sit on the loo in the morning, when my nose runs non-stop! I have no idea why.

It also happens, albeit less spectacularly, in my sleep. This means that I usually wake up in the middle of the night, wheezing. About three years ago my doctor diagnosed asthma, and a Ventolin inhaler does help ease the wheezing, but the main problem is coughing up phlegm. Once I've cleared that off my chest (with difficulty, sometimes), I usually feel better. But increasingly I am dreading nights, because sleeping (ie lying down) causes that congested feeling and wheezing chest.

When I do strenuous exercise, particularly in cold weather, my chest seems to seize up and breathing gets difficult. This is accompanied by a noticeable increase in my heart rate, which I can feel thumping in my chest. Again, Ventolin seems to help here (which I guess is why my GP diagnosed asthma three years ago -- although I never had asthma as a child.

Other side effects include lack of smell or taste. They really are very poor  (practically non-existent) these days. But is this a by-product of getting older? After all, my hearing is much poorer these days and that is obviously not caused by excessive mucus!

I gave up smoking ten years ago. I am about 3 stone overweight (6ft 1in and 16st), two stone of which I pile don after giving up smoking. I work (mainly) in an office environment.

My doctor has prescribed Beconase nasal spray, which is only partially effective. Sometimes it seems to have no effect at all.

To be honest, my GP was pretty disinterested, so I haven't returned in over two years. In fact he retired about a year ago and I have yet to go and meet his replacement, because I expect I'll again be fobbed off. After all, my "illness" must appear rather insignificant to an overworked doctor dealing with patients with life-threatening and nasty diseases.

In other words,if you can give me any pointers, regarding what the problem is likely to be and what I can try, I am very happy to sort this out for myself.

Anybody else recognise any of the above?

Pregnancy :: Green Mucus Discharge?

I'm about 14 weeks preggo and for the past couple of weeks i've been having alot of cramping, along with lower back pain and some pressure. I haven't gone to the doc. cuz it all seems pretty normal and i've had no bleeding. i've also felt emotionally distant from the pregnancy,like i'm not pregnant. I'm nervous because i did have a miscarriage at 21 weeks with no symptoms except feeling disconnected like i do now.Anyway, last night i went to the bathroom to finally go number 2 and when i wiped(sorry i know it's gross) this weird green mucus stuff came out of me. I remember the same thing happened to me with my other pregnancy also. I called ob and the nurse didn't know how far along i was and told me it was my mucus plug. When i told her how far along i was, she didn't know what to say, I wasn't far enough along to go up so i had to go to my doc. who told me everything was fine. I have an app. with my obgyn on thur. but was wondering if anything like this has happened to anyone else, and if so what was the outcome?

I should mention, I did have a full term pregnancy after my miscarriage and do not remember this mucus.
