I had a collapsed lung a week ago what is that redish liquid coming out of the chest tube.

I had a collapsed lung a week ago what is that redish liquid coming out of the chest tube.

Normal: The body normally makes significant pleural fluid each day. It is produced on the parietal pleura (chestwall) side and absorbed or drains through the visceral pleura (lung lining) into the lymph vessels of the lung. The chest tube drains some of this fluid before it is absorbed. It can be mildly blood tinged so it can be kool-aid colored.

Constant lump sensation in left side of throat, frequent burping, feels like liquids get stuck going down chest leftside, pain under left side of rib?

Get evaluated.: Anytime you feel a sense of food or fluids "sticking" at a specific place, I am concerned that there may be a narrowing in the esophagus. This may be as simple as irritation from a capsule that got stuck to something more complicated like a tumor. Needless to say, you need the information. Your doctor may refer you to a gastroenterologist, or send you for some imaging studies first. Good luck. ...Read more

I feel liquid in my brain and chest moving around. It feels uncomfortable and I Have trouble breathing and headaches. Take omeprazole doesn't help.?

Exam advised: There is no pathology in the brain that can cause you to feel liquid moving. Even fluid in the frontal sinuses doesn't cause that symptom. T chest symptoms can be caused by contractions of the esophagus or by irregularities of heart rhythm. Considering all along with the complaint of breathing difficulty, stress and anxiety may be the problem. See your physician first, however for evaluation and adv ...Read more

Feels like food is stuck on my chest for a few hours, no problem swallowing liquids. Have the urge to force myself to burp?

Feels like food is stuck on my chest for a few hours, no problem swallowing liquids. Have the urge to force myself to burp?

Hi: If liquids pass you probably do not have a blockage as they would come back up too. You might have irritated your lower esophagus. Liquid antacids might be the best to try at first and dose four times a day. You might need to treat up to two weeks and Zantac (ranitidine) OTC would be easier. If your symptoms have been there longer then you need to seek further evaluation and treatment and possibly a scope. ...Read more

I keep throwing up a white foamy sort of liquid In small amounts but I also have a very tight feeling in my chest could that be clearing my chest?

Chest tightness: If you are vomiting and not coughing up the material, chest tightness may be muscular or may be from esophageal inflammation. Coughing up the material would point to infection/inflammation of the trachea or bronchial tubes. If you're vomiting, follow a bland diet, avoid caffeine and take a medication like prilosec or nexium. See your physician if no improvement. ...Read more

Possibly ge reflux: Sometimes gastroesophageal reflux can irritate esophagus causing dysmotility or narrowed segments that can impede movement of food through the esophagus. Your physician should be able either by trial on medication, testing with imaging, or scoping the esophagus and stomach make this diagnosis. Your testing has ruled out cardiac issues and other anatomic causes for sternal pain. ...Read more

I choked on something last night (not sure if it was solid or liquid) and managed to cough and vomit it up. But now when I cough I get chest pain?

See doctor: It is not uncommon to have pain in the chest cage or the diaphragm after violent vomiting, but if you still have a cough 24 hours after the episode then I would be concerned over aspiration pneumonia. If the problem persists for another day or gets worse at any time, see your doctor- however in case of doubt, get checked out sooner rather than later. ...Read more

I'm having some trouble with constipation and chest discomfort. I keep burping after drinking any liquid and the discomfort goes but comes back again?

Support Stomach.: This is most likely due to a deficiency in stomach acid and/or small intestine enzymes. Try using a digestive enzyme (incl., betaine) with meals. Take bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) 30 minutes after meals. Supplement with a high quality, high potency acidophilus as it is needed for lower intestine digestion and helps constipation. Use homeopathic "upset stomach" (nux + carbo) sublingual every 5 minutes for symptoms. ...Read more
