Not normal: A sore throat is not normal. Red and white spots on the throat is not normal. Friction damage from some hours ago could explain the symptoms... or the symptoms and the friction could just be coincidental. One common cause of a sore throat is a strep throat infection. ...Read more

I cannot take a deep breath without clearing my throat. Is this normal?

Not normal: Your history suggest that you had barium swallow study done in the past, so this seems to have been an ongoing problem. With yours postnasal drip history, it's not normal to have to clear your throat in order to breathe deeply, unless you have thick sputum, or excessive nasal drainage. If that's the case, you need to be worked up further by your doctor or referred to a neurology specialist who can help you. ...Read more

4yr son clears throat and takes deep breaths. Says he's not having hard time breathing. Should I b worried? What should I do?

4yr son clears throat and takes deep breaths. Says he's not having hard time breathing. Should I b worried? What should I do?

Consider an ENT: There may be more here than allergies. Being unable to clear the throat may be a result of something that is not an allergic process, such as, chronic gastroesophageal reflux, as well as several other conditions associated with the esophagus and upper airway. I think you should see your primary care doc first and see if an ENT doctor should evaluate your son to find out the main cause of this. ...Read more

Every once in awhile when I breathe deep I feel like having a coughing fit and it feels like I have something caught in my throat. What could it be?

Every once in awhile when I breathe deep I feel like having a coughing fit and it feels like I have something caught in my throat. What could it be?

Possibilities....: The sensation of needing to cough when you breathe deeply could be due to bronchospasm or inflammation in your airways. It could also be due to atelectasis, a collapse of airways when you don't take deep breaths and then when you take a deep breath, these airways open and can create a cough. If your symptoms increase in frequency or intensity, see your doctor. ...Read more

4 yr old son went to drs cause he always clears throat and takes deep breaths. Nothing is wrong but continues to fo it. What could b the explanation?

Tic: These pattern behaviors can be signs of a tic disorder. These can be a transient process lasting up to 6 mo or a more long lasting process lasting years. There is some family influence (inheritance) and may be a triggering event (infectious process).I would have the kid seen by a pediatrician, developmental peds or child neurologist. These can be hard to sort out early and worsen over time. ...Read more

Butterfly/anxious feeling my my chest/throat but I don't feel nervous or anxious- no other symptoms other than I feel need to deep breathe. What is thi?

I took a deep breath in while laying down and feather went down my throat. Should I be concerned?

Foreign body: I've done the same thing. If the feather when down you swallowing tube or esophagus, you should be fine. Your stomach will digest the feather just like any other food item. However, if the feather when down your windpipe or trachea, it would likely cause a very significant cough and tickle that would not resolve until the feather is gone. If you think it is in your airway, get checked soon. ...Read more
