Can you get cough syncope while you sleeping?

Cough syncope

Cough
yes, it is possible, but the question is how does one know if that occurs if the person is sleeping. Advise sleep evaluation and study to make sure this is not nocturnal laryngospasm or night time choking in sleep.

I can't stop coughing which is preventing me from sleeping. Is there anything that would help?

Yes

Cough
You poor thing! Trying to sleep with a cough is miserable. If you're coughing from an infection, try an OTC cough suppressant or honey to quiet the cough. A vaporizer may help, sleeping propped up may reduce postnatal drainage, which makes you cough. Fever, body ache? Flu? Asthma? Pneumonia? Pertussis? Discuss with doctor if these measures don't help.

16 yr old has a constant cough & sniffle for years. Only when he's awake, when sleeping he's fine. What can that be?

It could be a tic

Cough
Occasionally children or teenagers will have respiratory symptoms that are due to unconscious, repetitive action of the muscles of respiration. Coughing and throat clearing may result, but will ONLY occur when awake. Especially if your doctor has ruled out other problems and if there are other tics (e.g. blinking), ADD or a family history, the diagnosis of respiratory tic should be considered.

What can I take for a really bad cough I've had for about a week now? I'm seven weeks pregnet it's keeping from sleeping!

OTC medication

Sleep
Any of the over the counter cough drops will be ok. If you have a sinus infection with drainage, you can try non-prescription decongestants, mucolytics, and cough suppressants as needed for your symptoms. There are very effective prescription cough suppressants that are safe during pregnancy - you doctor can prescribe as appropriate.

My daughter suffers from barking cough most often. But she doesn't cough after sleeping. She also has chest pain . Can it be croup?

No

Cough
you may be surprised to hear that this is most likely related to poor diet,particularly all the sweet addictive "junk" that kids are consuming. This is particularly true if she has nasty emotional problems. Cough is a reflex that is guided by brain/bronchus communication. Chest pain often occurs in association and may just be a "warning" if usual studies are O.K.

Hi my 8 month baby has got his first real cold he can't stop coughing and his chest sounds as though it has a lot if mucus on it he isn't sleeping.

Humidity

Cough
There are no good cough medicines to give an 8 month old. They cause more problems than they solve. Try and clear the mucous from the nose with saline drops and gentle suction. Usually the coughing is made worse by the mucous drainage down the throat. Lots of humidiity helps - take him in shower, run humidifier, boil water on your stove, go to the jungle - all will help. Feed small amountw often.

My 3 yr old daughter is coughing nonstop for the past 2 days and has runny nose but no fever. Coughing makes sleeping hard. How can she sleep better?

Cough

Stuffed_nose
It's important to know the reason your child is coughing so much. It may be as simple as a cold or allergies or more complex such as whooping cough or asthma. For allergies or post nasal drip you can try an over the counter children's formula antihistamine such as Benadryl. However, if the cough persists for more than 3 days or she appears uncomfortable it is best to have her seen by a doctor

11 month old fever of 102.5, very runny nose, and slight cough, also not sleeping well. Should I take him to see a doctor or can I treat this at home?

Depends

Fever
Fever in an 11mo can be triggered by a number of problems. A 102.5 is not much different than a 103 or 101 in predicting the need for a visit.Fever slows germ reproduction. If your child takes fluids well enough to wet diapers every 6hrs & has happy moments ,home care is ok for now.Declining fluid intake, increasing passivity or fussing, or that mommy button going off in your head, get it checked.
