Doctor can check: A person who cannot stop coughing needs to be evaluated and treated, by her doctor. Coughing should not be nonstop. Her doctor can examine her to see if there is something wrong in her throat, such as an unusual swelling. Her doctor can check the lungs to see if there is bronchospasm (which can be helped by inhalers), or any croupy barky symptoms. ...Read more

There's this tickling feeling in the back of my throat and I constantly cough! How to cure this?

There's this tickling feeling in the back of my throat and I constantly cough! How to cure this?

Antihistamines: The most common reason for having a throat tickle is allergy. You may or may not have runny/itchy eyes & nose with sneezing; but it is worth a try. Daily, non-sedating claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec, or Allegra should do the trick. This may be a seasonal thing, or may be year round. If it is more of a constant thing, then switch your daily antihistamine every 2-3 months to maintain the effect. ...Read more

I have a cold tingling sensation at the back of my throat, could it be from drinking lemon water? Also tingling and numbness in hand

See MD: Hand numbness likely is due to pressure on the nerve either from damage, inflammation or direct pressure. Throat sensation can be topical in nature - not likely lemon water, but excess acid could irritate it. This may also be nerve related. So, get to the MD and find out what is going on. You may be referred to some specialists as needed. Good Luck. ...Read more

Have a pain under my left shoulder blade that hurts when I cough or clear throat. The pain radiates down arm with little finger tingling?

Have a pain under my left shoulder blade that hurts when I cough or clear throat. The pain radiates down arm with little finger tingling?

Pinched nerve: Because patients having cardiac problems can have these symptoms, you should have this ruled out. But the most common cause is an irritation of a nerve in the neck by a bone spur or herniation that can cause pain or numbness that runs down the arm into the hand. An MRI can usually show the cause of the problem if it does not resolve. Thank you for the question. ...Read more
