A 40-year-old member asked:

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 34-year-old member asked:

My child have fever and difficulty in breathing while sleeping. Should I just use a nasal spray and decongestant.?

No: If your child is having fevers and difficulty breathing every night, and this is an ongoing thing, you need to see your pediatrician asap. If you are asking about a problem that's been going on for a couple of days, he probably has a mild viral illness. Give lots of liquids, a little tylenol (acetaminophen) for the fever, and if it persists, see your pediatrician.

A 17-year-old female asked:

I've been having bad chest pain and having a hard time breathing. Doctor said EKG and chest X-ray look ok and that im fine, the pain is getting worse?

Chest pain eval: I think we can say that your evaluation is not done since no explanation was found. If you're still having chest pain, more eval is needed. Consider a cardiac stress test, a test for gastroesophageal reflux, a test for the gastritis germ h pylori, a test of your oxygen saturation, a test for cardiac and other muscle proteins, and tests for rheumatologic conditions (ana, esr, crp, etc.).
A 29-year-old female asked:

I am a 29 yr old female I keep on having fast heart beats difficulty breathing and my left neck arm and thigh hurts I don't know what's wrong?

Possibly SVT: Although the symptoms could be completely unrelated, the combination of an extremely fast heart rate (>150 beats/ minute) accompanied by chest pain or shortness of breath can be very concerning. If you can time the heart rate and are having symptoms lasting for longer than a minute, you should see a doctor. Blood tests can help in the evaluation, but a heart "event monitor" can record the rhythm.
