A 44-year-old member asked:

I am 4 weeks pregnant and because of the high pollen my throat is very sore. What can I take to soothe my throat?

Specializes in Preventive Medicine
Sore throat lozenges: Congrats on your pregnancy! believe it or not, pregnancy and OTC (over the counter) meds are not mutually exclusive -- 9 months is a long time to go without a headache tablet or an allergy medication! many OTC meds are safe in pregnancy but make sure to check with your ob/gyn. For now, many of the names you know -- cepacol, chloraseptic, hall's, and ricola are fine.

Is my childs coughing related to heart burn? He does not have any breathing problems

Possibly: Coughing is a symptom and not a condition, therefore there are many possible causes. Heart burn (also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease or gerd) is a possible cause, especially if there are no breathing problems. Other causes include upper respiratory infections, allergies and asthma. Mild asthma can present as a cough without respiratory distress.

A 27-year-old member asked:

Could a viral infection cause bone pain (different from body aches), and shortness of breath?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. John Ayres
Orthopedic Surgery 37 years experience
No and yes.: Muscle pain (mylagia) is common, true bone pain less so. Viral infections are the most common causes of pleurisy or inflammation of the lining of the lungs, which causes sharp chest pain which is aggravated by deep breathing and coughing. Patients often notice shortness of breath, in part due to their shallow breathing to minimize chest pain.
