When lying on back in bed and trying to sleep crackling/moaning type noise coming from chest or throat, I turn onto side and noise stops. What is it?

When lying on back in bed and trying to sleep crackling/moaning type noise coming from chest or throat, I turn onto side and noise stops. What is it?

Hmmm?: Possibly chest congestion, where mucus in your airways is causing a noise when it rests in a certain way in the lying position, and then when you move positions, the mucus moves too thus causing a more patent airway in that place and allowing air to flow more readily without making the noise you hear. Get an eval if it persists. Best wishes. ...Read more

Hi have had a cold for 2 months on and off with sinus. At the back of the throat and into the noise I hear like crackling sound popping above the soft plate like there is phlegm stuck or something?

Hi have had a cold for 2 months on and off with sinus. At the back of the throat and into the noise I hear like crackling sound popping above the soft plate like there is phlegm stuck or something?

Ears and sinuses: The crackling and popping sound is likely to come from blocked Eustachian tubes. Their job is to equalize pressure between the middle ear and the outside world. However, inflammation can cause them to swell shut. Chronic nasal and sinus congestion are probably coming from either chronic sinusitis or allergies. Might try an antihistamine or decongestant, but consider seeing your doctor to see if andecongestant, but consider seeing your doctor to see if antibiotic therapy appropriate ...Read more

I have crackling ears, flem at the back of my throat, and a stuffy nose. What should I do?

Ear, nose and throat: Hello. First I would recommend drinking enough water every day. If we lack fluid intake, the mucus is less mobile and becomes stagnant. Second begin OTC Nasacort (triamcinolone). This medication is water based and will help reduce intranasal inflammation and help with your Eustachian tube and ear symptoms. This will also help with the congestion and mucus. ...Read more

After I eat I always have this crackling in my chest. I hear it when I breathe To get rid of it I have to cough or clear my throat of clear mucus.

Chest crackling: Eating may cause a reflexive asthma like reaction causing the crackling sound and cough instead of wheezing. It may be more frequent with certain foods. Another possibility is gastroesophageal reflux with some aspiration into your trachea. I recommend that you consult a gastroenterologist for evaluation and advice.

Can post nasal drip from chronic sinus infection 3 months. Cause chest congestion/throat wheezing, especially at night when laying down or waking up? Wheezing in throat is when exhaling and sounds crackling. Congestion in chest is productive.

See doctor: Although chronic sinusitis may be associated with coughing and worsening in asthma, it does not per se cause a productive cough and expiratory wheezing.

You may have upper airway obstruction which needs be considered. ...Read more
