My one year old son has a everyday (only)morning cough, constant nose congestion and gaggs and chokes on some foods.Any reasons?

Aspiration, reflux: Many things can cause long-term cough and congestion in a one-year old, most relate to inhaling (aspirating) what they eat. What you describe should be discussed with your doctor as they could lead to pneumonia. Be sure your son doesn't get a bottle or cup propped in bed at night. Your doctor is likely to want to check out his swallowing and possible acid reflux. Allergies aren't too likely. ...Read more

I see light blood stains in early morning cough. Had  cold for last 2 weeks and was using heater at night.  Feel dry inside nose & had small cracks. ?

Normal: This could be from post nasal drip if you are having some bleeding in your nose. Dry nasal passages can occur with a cold. Try a saline nasal spray to alleviate the dryness before going to bed and in the morning, it should ease the problem. If it continues, see your doctor. ...Read more

Had morning cough for a month had normal chest X-ray 6months ago but tech said I had really long lungs. Is this COPD? Cough started when I quit smoke

Had morning cough for a month  had normal chest X-ray 6months ago but tech said I had really long lungs. Is this COPD? Cough started when I quit smoke

Possibly yes.: Tech MAY be referring to Hyperinflation(over expansion) of the lungs. COPD is the most common cause. In COPD there is an inability for the lungs to empty normally on expiration due to loss of Elastic recoil and Collapse of the small airways(bronchioles). The overinflation is a compensation to increase elastic recoil. See> http:///bit.ly/2gEJZAc Being a former smoker suggests you likely have COPD ...Read more

What is the relationship with high neutrophil and asthma? I have had morning cough from nov-jan. Chest X-ray is clear; wheezing and sob on exam.

What is the relationship with high neutrophil and asthma?  I have had morning cough from nov-jan.  Chest X-ray is clear; wheezing and sob on exam.

Not too much: A high neutrophil count on a CBC (complete blood count) can be found after a patient has taken Prednisone (oral steroids). It can also be seen under times of "stress" including bacterial infections. There are various forms of asthma where there is high neutrophil count in the sputum coughed from the lungs-this includes some occupational asthma and severe non-allergic asthma. ...Read more

I've had a morning cough for a month. Never any flu symptoms. Now my left arm goes numb when I lie down. Cancer? Had clear chest X-ray 6 months ago

Cancer?: Doubtful especially with a normal chest radiograph in the last 6 months. The cough and the left arm are probably 2 separate conditions. I would start with your PCP or see an ENT/pulmonologist for the cough. See an orthopaedic doc for the left arm. ...Read more

I have a stuffed up nose sore throught can't speak in the morning cough mucus in lungs in morning. I'm miserable help i also have asthma?

Don't delay: Asthma is not a disease to take lightly or ignore. If night time symptoms occur more than twice a month or day symptoms more than twice a week, asthma is not controlled. There are many triggers that should be evaluated for and with nasal congestion, consideration to allergies and sinus issues is high. There are many excellent medications available to treat asthma and allergies. Relief is there. ...Read more

Sore throat worsening for a few days with postnasal drip. Throat pain when swallowing (very bad in morning). Cough on & off. Congested. Ideas?

I work in a icu, ex smoker, had  cough history past 3 months onwards  and treatment had taken , pft, montex showed normal. still cough on morning?

See Below: The top 3 causes of chronic cough are in order, post nasal drip>asthma>acid reflux which may be silent. That and an ACE inhibitor cough account for 90ish percent of all chronic cough. Given smoking history I absolutely agree with getting a chest x-Ray. If all of these are not problems and x-Ray is normal consider high res CT. ...Read more
