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

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

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
