I have a cough, for 2 months, someyimes a wheeze from my throat, but the cough is always that itch in the back of my thoat.?

Could be...: Cough can have many etiologies including bronchospasm, post-nasal drip and your symptoms sound like a combination of these 2 entities. Other etiologies include bronchitis and gerd. If even one reason for your cough is not treated, you will keep coughing. You need to see your doctor so all the reasons you are coughing can be treated and your cough can disappear. Good luck! ...Read more

Is gerd surgery worth it? If I take a deep breath after eating I can hear a wheeze in my throat I don't want my lungs ruined. Will pills even fix thi

Pills like: Omeprazolemay completely eliminate this problem, and you can use an inhaler for the wheeze till it goes away. Its not going to ruin your lungs, just inflame them. I would not consider surgery at this time-it is not necessary. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Ask you OB GYN: Take as little as, possible. Speak with your OB for the best advice regarding prescription meds. Decongestants potentially may interfere with the pregnancy, so resist treating yourself unless it with teas like throat coat. You need a correct diagnosis first before really knowing how this should be treated, and to prevent it from getting out of control., ...Read more

I was diagnosis wheezing in the lungs. It feels like wheezing is in my throat from post nasal drip. Could the source of wheezing be mistaken by the doctor?

I was diagnosis wheezing in the lungs. It feels like wheezing is in my throat from post nasal drip. Could the source of wheezing be mistaken by the doctor?

Maybe: The throat does not wheeze, it does make another noise, stridor, that might be mistaken for a wheeze. It would be much louder listenting to the neck. There are people with Vocal Fold Dysfunction that is mistaken for wheezing and asthma. Usually it would affect your voice as well. The bigger problem is mistaking it for exercise induced asthma. I don't think this is likely, but it is possible. ...Read more

Swollen lips, wheeze, cough, tightness in throat, tightness in chest are all present during my kids month on tobi (tobramycin). I wear n95 1 hr & hepabut still sx.

Talk to your doctor: Much of the dose of tobi (tobramycin) goes into the air rather than directly into the child, especially when given with a mask rather than mouthpiece. It sounds like you are having a reaction to it. Talk to your child's doctor who has prescribed the tobi (tobramycin). It may be necessary to switch to a different inhaled antibiotic for your child rather than tobi (tobramycin). ...Read more

Can post nasal drip from chronic sinus infection 3 months. Cause chest congestion/throat wheezing, especially at night when laying down or waking up? Wheezing in throat is when exhaling and sounds crackling. Congestion in chest is productive.

Can post nasal drip from chronic sinus infection 3 months. Cause chest congestion/throat wheezing, especially at night when laying down or waking up? Wheezing in throat is when exhaling and sounds crackling. Congestion in chest is productive.

See doctor: Although chronic sinusitis may be associated with coughing and worsening in asthma, it does not per se cause a productive cough and expiratory wheezing. I suspect that you are suffering from asthma. Recommend that you consult an allergist who will likely be able to find out the cause for your chronic sinusitis and chest congestion. You may have upper airway obstruction which needs be considered. ...Read more

My 3yr old woke up wheezing, complaining about his throat and tummy hurting. He has a bad bad cough and runny nose what do I do? & what does he have

Possible virus: Wheezing, cough and runny nose can be symptoms of a virus. Frequently there is fever as well. If these symptoms have occurred before or become recurrent, this could be early signs of asthma, especially if the child has eczema, food allergies, hayfever or parents with asthma. Wheezing suggests significant lung involvement and warrants a trip to the doctor. ...Read more

Can a wheezing sound come from the throat instead of lungs? I have silent reflux and I hear a little wheeze if I take deep or quick breathes after eat

Wheezing is a: Whistling sound that occurs during breathing when airways are narrowed. Acid reflux may cause or contribute to bronchospasm either from direct irritation by acid or by triggering cough and other reflexes. So I do think your wheezing could be due to GERD. Or GERD could be a contributor. Work with your doctor to optimally treat GERD and make sure you don't also have asthma. Stay well:) ...Read more

Possibilities....: Your breathing difficulties are likely due to bronchospasm. The bronchospasm could be due to post-nasal drip (or other sinus problems) and/or reflux. Bronchodilator and steroid inhalers can treat the bronchospasm and there are treatments for the sinuses and reflux so see your doctor asap. Smoking cessation will help improve your breathing as well. If your breathing worsens, go to the er. ...Read more

Heard a wheeze type sound when I had phlegm but as soon as I cleared my throat it was gone. Is this bad? Or ok since it instantly went away?

If it cleared: Once you coughed or cleared your throat, it probably was an upper airway mucous plug, as opposed to wheezing from a lower airway problem. If it continues to happen or happens again, but doesn't clear, you should have your doctor take a listen to your chest. ...Read more
