The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

To achieve tone, sculpted muscles, and overall leanness, is it better to do isolated workouts or a full body work out?

To achieve tone, sculpted muscles, and overall leanness, is it better to do isolated workouts or a full body work out?

2 Different Goals: For overall leanness, you must reduce body fat. This requires a diet that is relatively low in carbodydrates because carbs are stored in the body as triglycerides (also known as fat)

for sculpted muscles you need to isolate and work out those particular muscles so that they hypertrophy (grow). ...Read more

I am 54y old. When lying down or leaning forward I have globus sensation and need to cough up. I use Nasonex, (mometasone) and medications for LPreflux didn't help?

Perhaps see ENT/GI: If treatments for postnasal drip and gastroesophageal reflux did not help, it may be time to see either an otolaryngologist (ear-nose-throat physician) or a gastroenterologist to have a look with a fiberoptic camera and see what is going on. Which you should see depends on your symptoms; a primary care physician or HealthTap Prime or Concierge physician should be able to guide you. ...Read more

Pinched nerve: There are multiple potential causes, and I would not hesitate to be seen. One of the more common causes is a pinched nerve in the neck which can classically cause neck pain, headaches, and pain that runs into the shoulder. Because coughing and sneezing increase pressure on the spinal canal, they will classically worsen pain that comes from the spine. Don't hesitate to be seen for diagnosis. ...Read more

I'm  hurting under my left shoulder blade when I cough, sneeze, yawn, take a deep breath, or laugh  sitting up or leaning forward does help ?

Pleuritis: Unless you have a rare deformity of the underside of the scapula, the best bet is pleurisy. The lining of the lung is separated from the moving tissue by a fluid that occasionally is lacking in one spot and gets stuck. The irritation can persist and rarely requires medical help. Almost always you can wait and see if it is a transient and intermittant irritation. ...Read more

I'm also getting dizziness which comes and goes sitting or standing. Pressure in both ears gets worse if I bend forward. Recently had a chest infection which cleared on it's own but left me with a dry cough now been on going for 3 weeks?

I'm also getting dizziness which comes and goes sitting or standing. Pressure in both ears gets worse if I bend forward. Recently had a chest infection which cleared on it's own but left me with a dry cough now been on going for 3 weeks?

Labyrinthitis: Also called vestibulitis. These symptoms can be explained by a viral infection that blocks the normal drainage of the middle ear, and affects the balance organ in the inner ear. A decongestant (eg, pseudoephedrine) can help with the congestion, and Meclizine can help control the dizziness/vertigo. This problem usually gets better on its own. If worse, or if not better in a week see your doctor ...Read more

YES.: If you're currently pregnant, check with your OB. If not, see your primary care doctor or go to an urgent care center.

See your doctor: Saw you mentioned nausea and fever in another post. Given the fever, severe headache, worsening with forward bending, and long duration for 3 days I would recommend you get a physical exam and labs from a physician. Any sensitivity to light?
