Can babies get sore throats from crying?

Can babies get sore throats from crying?

Absolutely.: If you have ever attended an exciting football game and cheered vociferously for your team, the next morning (if not later that night!) you were probably hoarse and your throat was probably sore. Babies crying use the same basic equipment as your cheering. Obviously it requires rather forceful, red-faced crying (not just a whimper), usually with a waterfall of tears! resting the voice improves it. ...Read more

Held baby yest. who recently finished meds for thrush, due to mom's meds in utero. Today side of throat hurts and chest feels irritated, related?

Doubtful: The baby has finished treatment, so presumably has no more symptoms. Also the incubation of almost any disease is more than 24 hour. If you have an infection, you got it from somebody else. See your doc if you are not better, to make sure you don't have strep throat. ...Read more

My 5 year old says her forehead hurts, and her neck, crying a little, normal for a child to get headache?

My 5 year old says her forehead hurts, and her neck, crying a little, normal for a child to get headache?

It sounds like: she could have a strep infection....often associated with neck pain and headache. Children can get headaches although they aren't always able to describe it well. I would recommend you take her to her pediatrician today or tomorrow to be properly diagnosed and treated. You can also give her fever reducing medicine. If any other symptoms develop or she looks sicker, take her to the ER tonight. ...Read more

(i know its gross) can holding back the mucous from crying and knowing its going down ur throat cause u to get sick (like a cold for example)?

No: You get sick from viruses getting into your nose or eyes. If you have mucous in your nose from crying it is no different than the mucous your body makes all day (it helps to warm and humidify the air going to the lungs). If you were already getting sick, then it was a week in the making and not from crying. ...Read more

I had a dream that my cat died & i woke up to myself crying from my dream. I tried to swallow but my throat is tense & it hurts. Why is that?

Emotional distress: Emotional distress often includes physical tension and that can cause pain. Waking life sad events can bring this on and so can dreams. If this is a singular event and you have no further symptoms, you were simply saddened by the loss of your cat. Otherwise you might want to see a therapist to figure out what's happening. You don't need to jump to a DX or think of meds yet. Just watch how you feel. ...Read more
