Viral Infections :: Cough Syrup Suppresses The Cough?

I am at the end of a cold (2 weeks)and I have a bad chesty cough. I'm up in the night like a cat with a furball.

I saw my doctor who advised to use honey and lemonade, and Vicks vapour rub, but said to stop using the covonia chesty cough syrup, as it suppresses the cough.

Is that correct ? I always believe it contained ingredients to help break down the congestion.

Thumping Sounds In Head

For years now, I have been getting a thumping sound in my head. Usually when I am busy at work or on the computer, it doesn't happen at all, but when I am not busy doing anything it happens regularly and usually 3 to 5 thumps at a time and multiple times in a row. What could be the problem?

Schizophrenia :: Isolated, Sounds, Delusions And Illusions

I'm a teen. Odd I know but I had Schizophrenia for a couple months, I try to tell my "Guardians" but they just say "Oh You're just dreaming".

"You just we're Tired." I see bad things when I wake up...a Spider in front of my worst nightmare a tall pitch black figure,they become flashes when I wake up. Or when I walk in the House at night. I feel I am always watched and I go into Isolation more often than usual. I hear sounds as well. Since I deeply fear that I may wake up and end up fainting because I saw a Figure that wasn't actually there. My Best Friend Thinks i'm just Crazy. It feels when I escape a Nightmare I then live one. It seems as if no one believes me but I have most of the Symptoms, Isolated, sounds, delusions ,illusions,and a false sense of security. I just woke up and decided I need to find a way. The Only Ones who believe me are my Step Dad and Mother,but they have no control of me.

Weird Sounds In My Ear With Head Pressure And Dizziness

I started these pressure headache on top of the head and my one ear felt like was close also i feel weird sounds in my ear ( not always). The head pressure was soo much that i feel dizzy and felt that i would fall off.

I did CT sinus , MRI cervical , MRI head and all these test came clear so the neurologist told me that it's basically your anxiety as you have panic attack in which i feel pain in my chest , shortness of breath and constant muscle pain.

The most important factor here is that i have IBS for the past 2 years now which is high enough for me.

The doctor has given me Seroxat 12.5 mg ( paroxetine hydrochloride) which i have been take for the past 6 days but this medicine is not helping and in fact when i take it i feel that headache has grown more with shortness of breath and stomach upset and tremor in my hand or shall i say fingers but ve but the doctor is saying that it's not the reaction , its normal thing and you would adjust it in 2 weeks.

PTSD :: Freaking Out, Familiar Sounds And Nightmares

How it affects subtle...I don't' always realize it always.

For example:  I am in a relationship.

If that b/f says something similar to my past...I freak out on him...He is NOT the person that hurt me...but he suffers my wrath.

When I hear a police car...I shake and think something has happened to one of my boys. 

I really think it is MY HOUSE that I live in that causes me all the anxiety...If I could move...I think I could move further away from all the memories..all the walls I was hit into...the shower I had to think about who would bother me in.

The boys lived in and destroyed.

Etc....I don't have alot of nightmares...but I have alot of familiar sounds, and situations that set me to the past and cause much anxiety.

my asthma only acts up when I get a cold. 3 weeks ago, got the flu. I coughed up thick green mucus, heavy night sweats,a fever 101-102. Saw doc on day 3.My heart rate was elevated so had an EKG. Was normal. I was very weak and had a very tight chest short of breath and wheezing. By the third day I was coughing dry. Felt couldn't get enough air in to cough. Prescribed Cefprozil, Tussionex and Albuterol. A wk later I felt more energy but doc said I was still wheezing and crackling. Talking makes me cough. I was given Azithromycin, Decadron, prednisone.3rd appt still wheezing and tight and now dizzy.Lost 8 lbs. no appetite.Had chest x-ray and blood results yet. I now take Doxycycline,Clarithromycin Prednisone and Albuterol. Yesterday I was so dizzy I considered the ER.I don't cough at night anymore. Today less dizziness, + energy but pain in upper back & sides.Voice is different, still crackling sounds & tight chest and coughing. Is the asthma causing all this or just a bad bug?

Ear Problems :: Stapedial Reflex Muscles - Pain From Normal Sounds

After numerous medical consultations and exams I finally was referred to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge to a specialist in the audiologist department.

It appears that I have an issue with the Stapedial reflex muscles. This causes me pain resulting from normal level sounds.

They have prescribed relaxation and sound therapy rather than surgical treatment at this stage.

GERD (acid Reflux) :: Burping And Belching And Regurgitation Sounds In Morning

I have suffered from GERD for 12 years now and am at present taking x1 30mg tablet of Lansoprazole (switched from Omeprazole) because my symptoms just lately have been getting worse. I am due to have an endoscopy once my appointment comes through. What i would like to know is whether others experience similar symptoms to me, i've listed them below:-

1) As soon as i wake up in the mornings and sit up in bed, i start burping and belching (even on an empty stomach).

2) i have a wedge pillow to keep me elevated when i sleep but also upon waking, i can feel a regurgitation sound coming up in my throat (like a crackling, popping candy type sound but no bad taste in my mouth, just this noise going up and down until i start sitting up

3) As soon as i eat or drink anything, i start to burp and belch (seems like even before the food and drink hits my stomach

Wondering if this is all GORD related? it really is starting to annoy me now.

Schizophrenia? Hear Creepy Sounds, Slamming Of Door, Screaming Across The Street

I was researching about Hallucinating, and I saw that it was linked to Schizophrenia, and Isaw the symptoms and it seems that i had the same symptoms. For example, hallucinating, I would hear creepy sounds, someone slamming the door, someone screaming across the street, humming sound, and also sounds telling me im worthless, stupid etc, and when i was younger i would talk to my imaginary friends, and imagine scary things in my room that aren't actually there. And also I experience delusion, I'm afraid all the time and I'm always worried, wherever I go, I would think that someone behind me if following me and trying to kidnap me, and sometimes I think my parents adopted me while I'm actually not. And I used to have that I have super powers like moving objects via my mind or controlling waves. And I used to think that people see my appearance as if Someone else. Also I believe that one day I will meet the people that I've seen in my dreams, and other weird stuff. Whenever I hear creepy thing or imagine scary things, I would just start shaking and my heart start beating so fast. And I have that feeling when I'm sleeping that someone behind me is going to stab me. I've always had depression because uhm let's say I just have a sh*tty life, and I experience a lot of mood swings (a lot) I would be nice and in a moment I would just start screaming and hitting myself and pulling my hair.

Do I have schizophrenia?

Chickenpox :: Age 37

Ive just caught it off my two young daughters (who both still have it). I paid to have a private jab £125 to vaccinate me against chicken pox as soon as my girls developed it. Anyway, a week later i felt very tired, spent all of wednesday in bed, temperature of 37.9c, went work on thursday, hot and sweaty (thinking it was the jab), friday, got up feeling rough, covered in spots (jab was too late).

Id say i had about 1-2 thousand spots, my head was one red carpet. My body, back, arms, and tops of my legs are all covered, tho not as dense. My doctor gave me a sick note for two weeks (but thats only after i told him i didnt want to self cert). But thats all he gave me. No pills, lotion, nothing.

Anyway, most days have been spent in bed with brief periods with the screaming girls. My wife has been wonderful, coping with it all, just giving me space and making sure i drink!

Oddly, the big spots have got bigger and the small ones seem to be retreating, but it just looks like really bad acne. I have also found that the areas i didnt put calmine lotion on are much more comfortable and a lot less inflamed... I left my chest alone altogether and ive hardly noticed it.

Wish id never put any on my face and head.

Im taking lemsip twice a day and any old painkillers i can find before i go bed.

I cannot see that i will be in any shape to go work in 10 days, not unless they start scabbing over soon.

I spent the first few days really worrying about the scars i may get on my face, now i couldnt care less, i just want it over asap, i want to be able to eat without pain, sit, lie down, blink without feeling the huge blisters on my eylids touching, pick things up without the blisters on my fingers screaming.

Other than that im starting to feel ok, im going to go round the house later and remove all the mirrors.

My advice, only put calomine lotion on if you need to, keep cool - avoid sweating if poss. And avoid reading stuff on the internet, this site is the exception, i want to hear from someone on day 14...

Chickenpox :: Age 49

I have just come back from the Dr. and told it 'may' be CP. On Sunday (2 days ago), I noticed two spots and thought they may be bites. Thought nothing of it, but on Monday, these spots turned into 6 different blisters around the same area. I have been given calamine lotion.

It doesn't help that, as I going through my menopause, I get the odd flush (which of course could be temperature change re: CP)

I have been generally feeling unwell, but we had a hectic few days a couple of weeks ago for a big event at work and put it down to that, along with the change of weather.

It also doesn't help that I take medication for blood pressure and therefore, the odd headache may be due to that, or it may be due to CP.

Chickenpox :: 49 - How Long It Lasts?

I am 49 and have contracted chicken pox from goodness knows where. Having been teaching for 10 years and already having it as a child I am flabbergasted to have caught it again and seem to have caught it during half term away from children! There is only one child in our school that seems to have been off with it recently but apparently according to my doctor, it is rife in our local area at present!. I am into week 5 and still coming out in spots!! I am depressed, fed up, worried about my job and totally wiped out!! Has anyone out there had spots coming out after 4 - 5 weeks? I thought it was all supposed to be over in 3? I am now on antiviral tablets but they just make me feel sick and don't seem to be doing anything!
