My throat feels tight which makes me have a barking cough when I breathe too deeply. I have cardiomyopathy, should I be concerned with this symptom?

Reactive airway dise: 24 years old? What type of cardiomyopathy? Postpartum? If this is the case, there is a chance you heart function can still get better.
Second, barking cough would go to your respiratory system and even though heart and lungs are interconnected and their function affect each other, breathing deeply and having cough with inspiration, is not a typical symptom of cardiomyopathy Read more

Cough (Definition)

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system.

My son has a barking cough and has for a year on and off. The doctor has given him an inhaler and sinus meds and it doesn't help what does this sound like, there are no other symptoms other than a sour throat from the coughing and some congestion in his n

If: If this has been going on for a year with no relief from the medications given, then it is time for some diagnostic testing an possibly a consult from a specialist. It sounds like your son needs a chest x-ray to start, and maybe even a ct scan. Also, consider a consult with a pulmonologist (lung doctor) and a allergist as well.
I hope you find answers soon. Read more

Last week the I had a barking cough a week later and now my throat is still sore but when I swallow I feel the pain come up my neck and to my ear?

See a doctor: Referred pain to the ear may occur due to inflammation in the back of the throat. Hopefully this will clear up and was due primarily to a viral uri, but if it persists let a pcp take a look at you. Hope you are better soon. Read more

I'm sick and I have a fever, sore throat, barking cough, and a head ache. Will OTC meds work for this?

I'm sick and I have a fever, sore throat, barking cough, and a head ache. Will OTC meds work for this?

Depends...: If the fever is low-grade, then you probably have a virus which will run its course in a few days to week. In that case, symptom control is the treatment and some otc meds can help. On the other hand, if your fever is higher, you likely have a bacterial infection which will respond to antibiotics. See your doctor for specific diagnosis and treatment. Read more

Croupy cough (no sore throat) no phlem coming up I hear gurgling?

Coughing: Coughing without producing phlegm is likely related to a viral infection of the lower windpipe. Rattling sounds are due to areas where thick mucus is coating the walls of the airway. Supporting the immune system and monitoring for progression to a bacterial infection or pneumonia will serve you well. Keep your lungs active and cough out what comes up easily. Seek eval if worsening. Read more

Dr. Can check throat: Throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain. Read more
