URI: Sounds like an upper respiratory infection or acute bronchitis serious enough for antibiotics. Levaquin (levofloxacin) is good choice both for bacterial URI and/or sinusitis. Also get OTC expectorant/mucolytic for the productive cough. I recommend Robitussin PE or any combo of guafenesin and decongestant. ...Read more

Had appendectomy 4 days ago uvula was elongated during intubation.. have mucus stuck in throat that I cannot cough up making me nauseous help ?
Age 23. Had bronchitis 2 weeks ago, but lingering mucus. Minimal sputum occurs when dehydrated. Recommendations?
Stay hydrated: Acute bronchitis is almost entirely viral in origin. It takes time for full healing of the damaged cells in the lining of the bronchi and trachea to recover entirely. They produce secretions that are then brushed upwards by millions of tiny flagellae and coughed out. This needs fluid in the system for full recovery. You will get better. But if you are smoking - stop. ...Read more
Can check with Dr.: Sore throat symptoms may or may not have something to do with the upper GI endoscopy, since the throat was ok for a day and a half after the procedure. With such symptoms, one can call her primary care doctor or the GI doctor to see what the cause might be. If not related to the upper gi, the sore throat could be a cold or a strep throat infection, among other things. ...Read more

Dry cough for 2 weeks then productive cough white sputum then vomiting after attacks of cough then after 1 month sputum contain blood ?
Cough: Cough is one of the most common symptoms. One of the reasons could be adult whooping cough (cough with vomiting). The "whoop" is characteristic only to kids not adults. Other reasons can be chronic bronchitis for example. Eventually cough begets cough. I would highly recommend a pulmonolgist to check ur lungs, measure their capacity as well as test your phlegm in a culture to diagnose infections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
