Very bad cough, with mucus build up this morning upon awakening i coughed and had i found myself gasping for breath and straining to fetch the stuff up, noting came up. I had choking feeling, and got very nervous. I felt better after drinking lots of wat

The : The only situations I have heard of anyone choking from mucous is in an elderly person that lived alone and was not able to clear their airway by coughing, however this is very rare. What medication are you allergic to? If you have a bronchitis or pneumonia you may need antibiotics, there are many to choose from if allergies are a concern. Drinking water will help thin the mucous secretions along with a daily anti-histamine. I suggest you go back to your doctor for alternative treatment options. Best of luck. ...Read more

How come I have a choking feeling when running?

How come I have a choking feeling when running?

Possible reflux: During running and other physical activities, our GI tract slows down to shunt blood to our working muscles. When this happens, digestion slows way down. This increases the likelihood of having reflux and you'll get a sour taste in the back of the throat. Try running only after you wait an hour after eating or drinking a large quantity of fluid. ...Read more

Could oral thrush cause a choking feeling?

Could  oral thrush cause a choking feeling?

No: Oral thrush is a yeast infection of the mouth. Sometimes it is accompanied by thrush in the esophagus, which causes trouble swallowing. If you have trouble breathing, then that's not caused by thrush. I am assuming that you have been diagnosed with oral thrush by a physician, because that is usually a sign of a serious immune deficiency, unless you're using inhaled steroids. ...Read more
