Cough, Choking, Throat Closing On Sitting, Talking, Eating And Sleeping

Its been two scary months with a really bad cough. I went to the ER after the first month and they said it was a virus, a week later went to urgent care and they gave me antibiotics for bacterial infection, two weeks later got worse went to urgent care got a steroids shot and asthma treatment went home with steroids, albuterol and continue to lose oxygen when coughing randomly. I am very scared because it happens any time while sitting, talking, eating, sleeping and I think I'm going to stop breathing each time. My eyes turn shot red and I get like headed with a desperate sound of getting my breath like if I was being choked. I just went to the ER after a scary episode and both my lung and throat x-ray came back normal. Has anybody dealt with anything similar to this? If so please help. I will call an ear, nose, and throat specialist tomorrow. I also feel an acidic flavor and fleming sitting on my throat All the time.

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.

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

Thyroid :: Choking Sensation

I have many on thyroid medication for hypothyroidism for years and have been stable on the same dose for most of those. Early this year I started with a new doctor after my former one retired. She decided to have me tested and found my levels a little high so changed my medication from Thyroid Whole 65mg to a different brand and dropped it to 50mg. These gave me headaches and made me feel yuk so was switched to Levothyroxine 50mg. These appeared to be okay and my next test was reading normal.

Now though I feel like someone is trying to choke me all the time. When I rung and spoke to the nurse she said the doctor said to stay on that dose and be tested again in 3 months. My voice has started croaking and I feel so miserable. The only relief I get is when I first wake in the morning.

I have made another appointment for tomorrow to tell the doctor that I would like to see a thyroid specialist. Hopefully I won't have to wait to long for an appointment.

Dysphagia Confused With Choking?

I've had dysphagia all my life and as a child was diagnosed acid reflux disease and underwent surgery for both a fundoplication and dilation of the esophagus.

The dysphagia never completely went away though.

What often happens is the feeling of food caught in the throat. Like it won't go down even after swallow and I get a gurgling sound and also feel a very uncomfortable "pressure" in my throat.

I liken it to choking, except when this happens I can still breathe fine for the most part so I know I'm not technically choking.

Sometimes when this happens literally spend hours coughing and swallowing until I finally feel it slide down.

Here's my question. When this happens, I know I could swallow much harder and with more force, but psychologically I'm terrified of choking. If I swallow with more force the pressure in my throat gets even worse and whether I can breathe or not it still feels very much like choking.

Am I being irrational here?

Do I just have to suck it up and swallow very hard to force the food down, and just tell myself it may be uncomfortable but I'm not going to choke?

Lupus :: Systemic And Choking

I need to determine if lupus is the cause of a swallowing and choking problem I'm having. For the past year or so, whenever I get a cold or allergy congestion, I choke on the mucus. It's been getting progressively worse and last week it happened when we were on vacation and my husband had to get an ambulance to take me to the ER because I was choking and wheezing. They gave me 60 mg. of prednisone for a week, which my allergist adjusted to a lower dose, gave me an inhaler, oxygen and a breathing treatment. I'm also taking a heavy duty antibiotic for a sinus infection. The thing is, I've gotten colds and congestion all my life like anybody else, but I don't know of anyone else who chokes on the mucous. Then this morning I started to wonder if lupus and/or Sjogrens is the culprit and making my throat swollen. I'm going to ask my rheumy when I see him in Dec. but in the meantime I live in fear of getting another cold or allergy symptom. I just can't go through that again. It was the most frightening thing that's ever happened to me. I have been resisting an increase in my methotrexate, but if lupus is the problem, I will gladly up my dose. Does this sound familiar to any of you? Has your doctor told you lupus is affecting your throat?

ENT :: Sore Throat After Choking On Drink?

So this past Friday night (2 days ago), I was hanging out with a friend and we were having some drinks and having an all around great time. So at one point, my friend did something funny and it made me laugh so hard, that I started choking on the drink I was drinking (which was carbonated and alcoholic). It was actually so bad that I couldn't stop coughing and the drink actually came out of my nose. It took a little while to calm down, but finally I got situated and everything was fine. Well this morning, I woke up with a bad sore throat on the right side of my throat and my tonsils are very big and inflamed. It is the side that was affected the most when I was choking (and the side of my nose that the drink came out of), but I just wanted to make sure that it is normal to have a sore throat after choking on a drink as I can't find anything related to it. That same night, after the choking episode, my throat on that side was a little tender and it felt weird swallowing on the right side, but it wasn't as sore and inflamed as it is today.

Asthma :: Choking Feeling? Anxiety?

I've been having this horrible feeling like someone has a hand around the base of my throat, but I can breathe mostly fine. It's a horrible feeling. It gets worse when I lay down. Also I've been feeling lately like I can't breathe and I have to take a deep breath almost like a fast yawn. My inhaler only works for a couple of minutes and then it's back. I went to the ER and they said it was anxiety, which it is not. I make an appointment with a pulmonary specialist tomorrow. Anyone have any ideas as to what it could be our how I can help it until I can get to my doc?

Thyroid Disorders :: How To Get Rid Of Choking Feeling?

I have had choking feeling for the last 2 months. It is now almost everyday. I sleep very well and do not wake up with it. I start getting it by the afternoon until bedtime. It is really bothering me. I have had hypothyroidism for 12 years but my tests are fine and my ultra sound is good too. The ENT doctor says it is stress related but I think there is more to it than stress. It is really bothering me and I do not know what to do?

Thyroid Disorders :: Someone Choking Me Feeling

Over the past one-two years I have been getting stressed about school work, my appearance, my friends etc. and I had a conversation with some of my friends and they thought I may have had anxiety. I thought nothing of it because it wasn't much at the time but lately it's been getting worse. I feel sick all the time and the most common thing is the choking part. I feel like someone is trying to choke me, but obviously no one is. I have trouble breathing when this happens and my throat closes up and I kind of feel a bit dizzy. I have looked at some websites and they all say it may be a certain infection or something but I want to know if this has anything to do with anxiety? I still have not told anyone about the choking thing except my mum because I want to be sure I am getting this right before I start seeking help.

Stress / Anxiety :: Sweating / Choking

I have been struggling with anxiety for about eight months. I work a very stressful job (collections for a financial institution) and have tried to alleviate the stress by smoking/drinking more than I should. I know this just probably makes things worse, and I'm working on eliminating those habits.

At least three times a week I have had to change my clothes before going to work, because my anxiety is so high that I sweat completely through my clothes. I also go through bouts of coughing/choking just about every morning. I do not have much of an appetite. I often feel as though I am "out of my head."

Has anyone else experienced these symptoms? Has anything helped? I'm not a fan of anti-depressants, but I would be interested in hearing what other people have done to fix these problems, as they are unbearable and have made functioning very difficult.

Anxiety :: Choking And Throat Closing Feeling?

Lately I've been having a choking feeling, I'm pretty sure it's a normal feeling of anxiety but it is sure annoying. Feels kinda like my throat is closing too, then I start feeling like I can't breathe. Typical anxiety attack now. I've gotten myself into having one every night now because I was so terrified of the one I had the other night. It sucks that I get them before bed because I'm so tired but can't sleep with the choking feeling
