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

Choking feeling when I run. Is that just my throat or is it asthma?

Choking feeling when I run. Is that just my throat or is it asthma?

VCD vs. asthma: Exercise-induced asthma is more common than vocal cord dysfunction but both would have to be considered. Asthma tends to come on during cold/dry weather or may be triggered by allergens such as pollen, grasses or weeds. Vcd may have similar causes. Generally, asthma creates more breathing problems while exhaling, but vcd occurs while inhaling. See your primary care or sports med physican for help. ...Read more

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

Already seen doc, gave me amoxcillin but no help. Keep coughing up dark mucus everyday, choking feeling at night and tight neck throughout the day.

Already seen doc, gave me amoxcillin but no help. Keep coughing up dark mucus everyday, choking feeling at night and tight neck throughout the day.

Time to see doctor: If antibiotic treatment is not helping, and worrisome symptoms persist, a patient needs to be re-evaluated by a doctor. Perhaps there is an abscess in a tonsil or at the back of the throat. Perhaps a different medication is needed. A "choking feeling" and "tight neck throughout the day" sounds bad... which means one should not wait to be re-evaluated. ...Read more
