Every morning I wake up with a soreness in middle/upper chest area and it feels worse when I take a deep breath. Wondering what this could be?

At your age: It is not likely a serious condition. Based on the information you have provided my guess is a chest wall condition especially if aggravated by chest wall movement. That being said, I would still recommend you discuss this with your primary care doctor for a more thorough evaluation, ...Read more

Stop smoking to heal: Smoke causes inflammation in the bronchial tubes, increasing phlegm production. You apparently are taking an antibiotic for infected sputum. Smoking while taking the antibiotic promotes ongoing inflammation that limits the antibiotic's ability to kill bacteria.. The persistent cough, chest pain and blood means your bronchitis is getting worse. Stop smoking to let the bronchi heal. ...Read more

I woke up this morning with really dry throat it's been sore today and and if I breathe out all the way I start to cough and it hurts in my chest.

Bronchitis: Or tracheitis seems likely, an inflammation in the breathing tube somewhere between the throat and the lungs. Could also be laryngitis, flu, pneumonia or asthma. Try some honey, lemon tea and stay very well hydrated. You can take 4-6 gms of Vit C with food. Stop if/when you get diarrhea. If you have fever, chills, sweats, headache, it is time to see someone. Good luck and get well soon! ...Read more

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). If there is a lung cough, it is often viral, but can be "bacterial." ...Read more

Woke up with slight sore throat. No fever or other symptoms. Sore throat for 1 day. Dry cough. Tight chest. This morning coughed up lime green phlegm.

Give it time: It sounds like you have an upper respiratory tract infection. Give it a few days. If you continue to worsen past 4 or 5 days of symptoms, then you may need an antibiotic. Of course, if you have any trouble breathing, you should get to the doc right away. Hope you feel better soon! ...Read more

Acid reflux?: You could have had some acid reflux through the night that caused those symptoms. Or you could be developing a viral upper respiratory infection. Wait and see how the next 24 hours progress - if you get a fever, cough, runny nose then infection is more likely. ...Read more

I've had a bad cough for 6 days, it start with a sore throat. Had chest tightness and wheezing. This morning my ear popped and won't pop back, advice?

I've had a bad cough for 6 days, it start with a sore throat. Had chest tightness and wheezing. This morning my ear popped and won't pop back, advice?

Don't worry: I'm sorry you've had a bad cough for 6 days. No need to worry about the ear popping back. As the congestion in your upper respiratory system resolves the pressure in your eustachian tube will come back to normal on its own. You don't need to do anything. Don't try to "pop it back". No need to focus on it. Turn your attention to other things and you will find it will resolve in time. Best wishes. ...Read more

GERD: Assuming that cardiac causes have been ruled out, it is possible that your GERD is not under control with your current dose of Prilosec. You should avoid any particular foods which make your symptoms worse. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco. Consider tilting your bed. See your doctor to be sure other causes have been ruled out and to consider either further evaluation or medicine adjustment. ...Read more

Cough: In general, a symptom of coughing can first be addressed by over the counter measures. Cough specific syrups or tablets are readily available. Decongestant medicines can help if the cough is related to sinus drainage. Giving the cough ample time to clear is advisable but if you develop fevers, shortness of breath, chest pains, or bloody sputum, or a long cough, it may be time to see your doctor. ...Read more

Seek Attention: I would recommend you seek medical attention as soon as possible. I would try contacting your doctor again. An emergency room is not the ideal place to have this type of issue evaluated as it doesn't seem like a true emergency. If your doctor can see you within 1-2 days, that may be best. But please remember you may need to see a physician sooner if things worsen. ...Read more
