Is Going To Sleep With A Cough Drop In Your Mouth Bad
Yes...: There is a risk of the cough drop going into your airway which is less protected while you sleep. Your cough reflex is suppressed during sleep so if the cough drop goes "down the wrong way", you could actually block your airway and essentially choke in your sleep. Better to take the cough drop out of your mouth before you fall asleep. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Last forever: This sounds like a post-viral cough which can last for weeks and there isn't anything that helps, at least that I can find. You just have to ride it out most of the time. As for the white circle in your mouth, it sounds like an aphthous ulcer, but difficult to say without seeing it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why would my tongue be numb when i eat or drink? Has happened for a few days. It's a bit numb like i sucked on a cough drop. I don't have allergies
I bite my tongue when I fall asleep sitting up, but not when I lay down. It doesn't really hurt, is it bad that this happens?
Of course; as stated: Tongue biting, especially repetitive, is clear pain-inducing, body-destructive, self attack. Two issues: (a) What is happening in your mind to drive this behavior while asleep in sitting position & (b) what & how much damage occurs each time along with how well (or not) the results of healing (never fully duplicating original anatomic structure/function before injury). ...Read more

I was sleeping woke up to a cough with something in my mouth i spit out a jelly like glob of blood. No mucus?
Something bled: The most common cause of coughing up blood is bronchitis, for the throat is so raw it bleeds. That would go away on its own. But, if you have not been coughing, other things can cause blood to collect in your throat, like nose bleeds. Once you get moving, you bring the blood up. It should stop happening after a few days. If it is heavy bleeding, or doesn't stop, you should seen a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It has been difficult finding a doctor who understands this condition and wants to help treat it. If you could help me, I would appreciate it......?
You need to see a doctor.: Undoubtedly, you have experienced a lot of stress in the recent past and presently have a child to care for, which does not help. Not withstanding the possibility of a PTSD / anxiety related disorder, my recommendation is that you see any physician in your vicinity. Family Med, Internal Med, Neurologist, ENT, etc. You begin by telling them of your current poor balance, loss of coordination, dizziness and extremity numbness only. This warrants an MRI of the head. You need a physical exam and some bloodwork done. Based on your evaluation and the test results, that physician will direct you to the necessary specialist if it is indeed warranted. ...Read moreSee 12 more doctor answers
