Asthma: You appear to be suffering from asthma and perhaps acid reflux as well (worse when lying down). Recommend that you consult an allergist since there is suggestion that you may have a sinus infection as well. Do not delay. If you can't get to see an allergist within the next 24 hrs, go to the ER. ...Read more

Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

Your cardiologist who knows all your findings is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. Noncardiac causes include pinched intercostal nerves, asthma equivalent or other lung or esophageal issues. ...Read more

I've been sick with a cold and after day 5 I have a deep cough, I'm extremely lightheaded and I have difficulty breathing along with chest pains.?

Chest cold: Your upper respiratory infection has spread to your breathing passages and now you have acute bronchitis. There may be a component of asthma as well, even if you've never had asthma before. If you're uncomfortably short of breath, you should go immediately to an ER for prompt treatment. If it's just a nuisance symptom, you ought to at least see your doctor tomorrow to be examined. ...Read more

I had a cold for 4 weeks. Now get sharp chest pains when I cough or sneeze. I've always had back pain-is it referred pain? Chest xray was clear.

Viral pericarditis: You should see your primary doctor to confirm this. It may be a viral pericarditis, aka inflammation of the fibrous sac around the heart causing sharp chest pain; pain may also be felt in the shoulders, neck, or back, pain worse with lying down and breathing deep. Diagnosis is ekg, ultrasound of the heart to look for pericardium effusion. Treatment typically with NSAIDs like Ibuprofen or Naproxen. ...Read more

It's been a week in a half and this cold gets better than it gets worse! It's going up and down with a persistent congested cough & chest pain?!

Infection: A good rule of thumb is that if an upper or lower respiratory infection persists beyond approximately 10 days, it likely has become a bacterial infection. You likely have a lower respiratory infection and need to see your doctor. Antibiotics probably would be helpful. Get seen soon and other supportive therapy will be given to make you feel better. ...Read more

Airway spasm: Cold air can induce bronchial constriction which can manifest as a cough or wheezing. Your pain may simply be from the rib cage if your cough is forceful. In cold air try to keep a scarf handy to cover your nose and mouth to warm the air before breathing it in. If your symptoms don't go away fairly quickly seek out help from your healthcare provider. ...Read more

I had all the symptoms of a cold yesterday. Today I woke up with a terribly painful cough (chest pain). Should I be going in to class?

Probably.....: If you have no fever, you likely have acute bronchitis due to a viral infection. Coughing into your elbow will help prevent spread of infection while the bronchitis runs its course in about 7-10 days. Another possible etiology is bronchospasm. If your cough is not improving, or if you develop shortness of breath, see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Smoking cessation is also needed. ...Read more

Am 26 & in good shape, when the weather gets cold, I suffer a chest pain in the night when I try to sleep, no cough, and it's been like this for years?

Unclear: The pain is related to the cold presumably When someone breathes in cold air, patients will sometimes get pain in the chest. This may reflect asthma. If you can see a doctor in your country discuss with them. If it has been several years the likelihood of this being serious is very small. BEst wishes. ...Read more

Weight gain of 2lbs in a day lost over night. Feeling very cold at rest with chest pain and cough. Could this be worsening chf?

Weight gain of 2lbs in a day lost over night. Feeling very cold at rest with chest pain and cough. Could this be worsening chf?

Not likely: If you have a history of CHF and if it's been recently uncontrolled, then, yes, it's conceivable that your symptoms represent decompensation. But feeling cold and chest pain are not sx of CHF and cough and weight gain have many causes other than your heart. A chest xray and simple blood sample could easily resolve this uncertainty. ...Read more

I woke up with chest pain and every once in awhile a dry cough, is this a chest cold? I am 26, female, my body feels a little weak (like it usually does when I feel sick). My daughter has had a cough for 4 days so I may have gotten it from her.

It: It is possible that it is the same infection as your daughter, that has affected your lungs. That would commonly be called a "chest cold", so the answer on that is it could certainly be. Since you are having pain and cough, please make an appointment with your doctor. If you have worsening symptoms, fever, productive cough, or any shortness of breath then you will have to go to the er. ...Read more
