Pregnancy :: Cough With Sore Throat

does anyone know what you can have to relieve a sore throat and cough when your pregnant?

Mines really bad, I managed to catch a viral bug which made me sick and gave me a very high temperature. Ended up in hospital for 2 days on a drip because I was dehydrated and couldn't keep any food or drink down myself. Thankfully I'm out now and everything's ok with the baby but my throat is so sore and I'm constantly coughing. I've been drinking water and taking paracetamol

Sore Throat :: Swollen Tonsils, Lump In Throat, Clear Mucus, Sore, Headache

My tonsils have been swollen for over a month, until last week they were painless, but now I have flu symptoms. Its quite scary, it affects my swallowing and I have a very very dry mouth, even when I drink loads of water all day. Hasn't affected my breathing as of yet, but feels like a lump in my throat is blocking it off.

This has been going for three days now.

Doctor said I need a blood test for glandular fever, which is next week.

I mentioned that I think I can feel my epiglottis swollen, and she laughed and said that is all the way down by my adam's apple and would have a job feeling that... even though i've seen many cases online where it's visible above the tongue and often can be felt.

Ear, Nose And Throat :: Cough And Taste Of Blood At Back Of Throat

Before I rush to a doctor and look like a hypochondriac I thought I'd shoot a question here:

I woke up this morning and I have been coughing/gagging all morning and can taste blood in the back of my throat, I have not coughed up any blood though.

I have been trying to quit smoking since 2011 and have been a smoker since 1991.
I am also on SR Hydromorphone (Jurnista) for severe chronic back pain.
I am also on 800 Mg Carbamazepine (as a Mood stabilizer NOT for Epilepsy)
As well as Mirtazapine (for chronic Clinical Depression)
And Atenolol for mild Hypertension.

Anyhoo, as of this morning I have been hacking up a storm, as of 2 hours from waking up I developed a sore throat (I believe from the hard coughing)  I have not coughed anything up but the coughing gets so hard it becomes dry-reaching frequently.

And that taste of blood waay down in the back of my throat is ever present after each cough.

As I have depression and mood disorder, I don't want to go straight to the doc as quite often individuals with mental health issues don't get taken seriously here in Australia, quite often I would get told "Go to your psychiatrist" as if I am crazy.  and in the past I ended up in trouble with serious health issues that went undiagnosed simply because some peanut G.P. thought it was all in my head, until I ended up in hospital sometimes in quite serious condition.

So I was wondering if someone who understands this coughing issue could be could shoot me an answer first.

I am meant to go to University tomorrow (I am studying for a Psychology Degree) and I want to be at my peak for study if at all possible.

Sore Throat :: Sore Throat, Overall Ill Feeling No Diagnosis

sore throat,fatigue, pain, no diagnosis Posted 10 minutes ago I'm sorry for the long post but I really need some help. I am 25 years old,female from Bulgaria. Everything started after 2 shots of progesterone done by my gyno. I had high prolactin levels and somewhat low progesterone and my period stopped so that is why she gave me shots. After the second shot I woke up with very bad pain and burning sensations in my sinuses,my whole body was in pain.And there it all begins.For 2 weeks I wasn't getting better, I had a fever (not very high),sinus pain and sore throat. Finally I visited a ENT doctor,she said that there was nothing wrong with me,everything-ears,nose throat looked fine but I asked for a sinus x-ray-it was also fine. Then my gyno advised me to culture my throat and nose. The results were staphylococcus aureus in nose and Moraxella catarrhalis in throat. I was prescribed cefpodoxime (due to antibiogram) took it for several days and I wasn't feeling any better,then my dr switched me to Cefuroxime,it did help at the beginning,I was feeling better but by the time I was taking my last pill all the symptoms returned. My sinuses didn't hurt anymore but my throat was on fire,muscle and joint pain,feverish feeling but no actual fever this time. So I was put on unasyn (Sultamicillin) on IV drip.I was getting no relief and was just feeling very sick from that med,so we stopped it. The I went to another ENT doctor and he told me there was nothing wrong with me, my throat looked fine and I had a little wound in my nose with blood. I had no runny nose. So I did a culture of my throat again and it happened to be Candida Glabrata ( may be because of all those antibiotics) I also had e.coli in my urine.I took one dose of Fosfomycin for my e.coli and it cleared up and I was put on IV  drip again with fluconazole for my candida.I also had candida in my vaginal results. I started to get better on fluconazole but again it lasted 3 days and in the end of the treatment I was ill again. My ears started to hurt very badly,all other symptoms continued.I waited 2 weeks after the last antibiotic and did a nose and throat culture again in two different labs and there was no infection found, I also did a vaginal and urine tests again and the urine was fine, had some enterococcus faecalis but in small amounts from my vag microbiology. My gyno said that it is better to not treat it for now because of all the meds I took for those 2 months. Yes,it's been two months and I am only getting worse, my whole body is in pain,I am very fatigued,have the flu feeling sore throat, ear pain,lymph and joint pain,I feel very very ill. And the tests say nothing. On my blood test the only thing that was abnormal was my AST  (antistreptolysin-titer) levels were high 310 (from 200 being the norm).Went to a 3rd ENT,he also said everything looked fine, my ears and throat are not inflamed and he said that it wasn't my ears that hurt but my face joints. So I am here,desperate for ome help, not getting better,not knowing what to do now.I started having very bad panic attacks because I think I am dying and no one can find what is that illness. Can it be some autoimmune response to the progesterone shots? I don't know anymore. It's a struggle to get out of bed really.

Reflux Oesophagitis :: Throat Clearing Is Still Left

After suffering with reflux for the last 10 years, With diet change and Nexium it's all under control apart from the constant throat clearing. 

Has anyone made headway with this part of it all?

Whilst it not as serious as other people symptoms, I have just been through a divorce after 17 years and i'm not sure any woman is going to want a man who clears his throat every minute!! lol

I do have a small lump sensation in the throat with it. The biggest thing I had to cut out was bread, it used to get stuck and make me bloated. I do miss a nice thick piece of white bread and butter though  

Anyway, back on track to the constant throat clearing. Anyone had any luck?

Reflux Oesophagitis :: Constant Mucous In My Throat

My main symptom with LPR is the awful mucus throat. Does anyone know when this starts to disappear, during the course of my  ppi treatment? Can a phlegmy throat be caused by intolerances? I only seem to get the sore throat when I'm talking a lot or stressed and sometimes in the morning if I've slipped off my pillow in the night. Can someone please help, it's just awful, making me feel very sick.

GCA :: Colds / Cough And Sore Chest

I have been doing a gradual return to work following diagnosis of GCA just before Christmas.

Last Thursday, a couple of people in the office, including and especially my boss, came into work with colds/coughs. By the middle of the night, I knew that I was getting a sore chest. I got worse (I was at home in bed) and was admitted to hospital Sunday as my heart rate was far too high due to lack of oxygen. An xray showed a nasty infection in both lungs. The long and short of it was 3 days in hospital.

I already had an appointment with my rheumatologist today, so my husband dragged me to see him. The rheumy had been away and hadn't been aware that my GP had allowed me to go back to work, albeit on a gradual return. He was very unhappy about that, as he said he had told her that I should not return until I was on a stable dose of Pred. I am currently on 25mg, having tried to manage the tapering myself due to useless GP. I had a good discussion with rheumy about tapering by 2.5mg only over a period of time.

He has now signed me off for a minimum of a month. Of course, the lung infection needs time to clear up as well.

My husband then did what I should have done myself at the beginning of my GCA journey and called the doctors surgery and told them that I need to be under an experienced senior GP from now on as the GP I have been under has been incompetent and this is the last in a series of errors she has made which could have had serious repercussions on my health.

Tomorrow I will call the surgery to see one of the senior partners who is well regarded. I can then hopefully begin to feel I am in safe hands.

I'm feeling really rough, the infection and the double dose of antibiotics are taking their toll, but at least I feel optimistic that with the change in GP, I will be in better hands.

I burp so much and with so much effort that sometimes my esophagus gets sore for days.   If I drink water, I burp, if I eat I burp... I burp all the time.  I had a hiatal hernia, but had it repaired.  Any idea why I burp so much and what I can do about it?

Reflux Oesophagitis :: Constant Throat Clearing After Eating

For the past while I have been experiencing issues after eating. After eating it feels like something is stuck in my throat and I constantly have to clear my throat. This lasts about 20 minutes and it slowly goes away. However, in addition to this I also experience my voice going hoarse while it is occurring. This only happens after eating, not during. I have no issues during meals, but about 5 minutes after I get the sensation in my throat and my voice will go in and out. It bothers me and causes me to avoid going out to eat because I feel rude constantly clearing my throat. It is quite irritating, but I am unsure if it is something I should bother my doctor about. For the record, I am 25 and I have been experiencing this for 1-1.5 years.

Reflux Oesophagitis :: Thick Mucus And Throat Clearing?

So I've really been through it with my GERD and I've had a year and a half of hell. I'm just starting to see some improvements but now I've got this thick mucus at the back of my throat that gets stuck there, I can't swallow it as it doesn't move much but when I cough it does come up, then slips back down.

I'm constantly having to cough and clear my throat, the mucus tends to sit right near my gag reflex so it's always uncomfortable!

Reflux Oesophagitis :: Lump In Throat And Burning Mouth

Until a few weeks ago I thought I was a success story here but I fear I'm a complete failure and I don't understand why or what is best to do. 

A few weeks ago my lpr symptoms started sneaking back despite my taking 40mg nexium and 40mg domperidone per day  and also Gaviscon Advance. 

My symptoms are lump in throat, horrendous burning mouth and horrendous chest pain.

I'm waiting on a ph test but that's in 6 weeks and I won't see the GI consultant for another couple of weeks after that. Each day seems to be a bit worse and now it's hurting to swallow,and food is getting stuck. I'll be honest, I'm terrified I've got something awful. The pain is constant, both in my mouth and throat and in my chest. I've been in floods of tears.

My gastroscopy at the end of April was clear apart from Barrett's, the one I had before that when I had these symptoms ( before ppis) showed grade 2 oesophagitis and Barrett's.

I have a gp appointment tomorrow and don't know what to do? Do I insist she sends me back to the GI as my symptoms have radically worsened? Is there any way of lessening the symptoms ( I have already made all the lifestyle mods and drink alkaline water)

I'm at a loss, just don't understand why this is happening to me. So scared my oesophagus is getting damaged again. I just don't know what to do. This condition is ruining my life.

Reflux Oesophagitis - Loss Of Appetite, Lump In Throat And Bloating

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone has had/has the below symptoms:

* loss of appetite/ no hunger

* feeling of lump in throat - mainly after eating

* bloating - sometimes a burning sensation in tummy

* fullness quickly

* general feeling of overall discomfort which makes me feel sluggish

I definitely know I can't tolerate too much wheat well nor alcohol. I've had than endoscopy/colonoscopy and it came back with "gastritis". I've been on nexium 40mg and somac 40mg but doesn't seem to be helping so I dont think its  reflux issue. I've now been seeing a naturopath and taking some herbal mixtures which has helped with the bloating on some days. I know diet definitely makes a difference but I feel I've not got to the root of the problem. This has been going on for about a year now and of course I am worried given it hasn't cleared itself.
