Is it weird to make a whooping sound?

Is it weird to make a whooping sound?

"Weird"?: It might be surprising, if you're not expecting a "whoop" to come out of you when it does -- and could possibly feel weird. The question is whether these are voluntary "whoops", which can express joy or excitement, or involuntary ones. If it's the latter, it may be a type of tic disorder. And if this troubles you, you could consult with your primary care doctor, or a psychiatrist. Good luck. ...Read more

My 6 week old daughter has been making a whooping sound since birth, mainly when she gets excited. No coughing is involved. But is this normal?

My 6 week old daughter has been making a whooping sound since birth, mainly when she gets excited. No coughing is involved. But is this normal?

Rubbery airways: Infants have airways that are very flexible that become stiffer as they age. In some this is quite noticeable, particularly if excited as they draw air in and vibrate the walls. The squeak or croup can increase after birth as the become more active but tends to fade after 6 mo. An evaluation by an ENT that can visualize the airway can confirm the issue. ...Read more

My one week old daughter just coughed should I be concerned? It didn't have a whooping sound nor did it sound like a smokers cough. No high temperature

My one week old daughter just coughed should I be concerned? It didn't have a whooping sound nor did it sound like a smokers cough. No high temperature

Babies cough: And sneeze, and make all kinds of noises. I understand, especially with new parents, that anything out of the ordinary can be scary, but a cough can occur with a temporary aspiration of saliva. If it is persistent, if the baby has a temperature, if there are breathing problems, then see your pediatrician. If not, enjoy your baby more and worry less! ...Read more

My child makes a whooping sound when he breathes in. Does that mean he has asthma?

My child makes a whooping sound when he breathes in. Does that mean he has asthma?

No: Asthma is usually a breathing out noise, except in its more severe form when patients wheeze breathing in and out. All abnormal breathing should be evaluated by your doctor-other conditions to consider include inspiratory stridor from croup, tracheomalacia, whooping cough, or a foreign object in the windpipe. ...Read more

My son started coughing real bad and he coughs till he throws up. Nights are worse, he'll cough non stop. Does this sound like whooping cough?

Could be: Anyone having a coughing fit can cough until they throw up - the medical term is vomiting after coughing - post tussive vomiting. If your child is not fully vaccinated, please check in with your doctor right away. Whooping cough coughs long and hard - and you may not hear the characteristic "whoop.". It is very contagious. ...Read more

What is a gasp and when is it a concern. She doesn't stop breathing at night; will gasp kind of like in the whooping cough cemercial. No cough with it.?

What is a gasp and when is it a concern. She doesn't stop breathing at night; will gasp kind of like in the whooping cough cemercial. No cough with it.?

Probably benign: I assume you are referring to a small child. The cause of this may vary with age. Pauses and sighs are common during sleep and not concerning. High pitched breathing noises on breathing in may occur in infants with acid reflux. I would recommend that you try and capture a video on your phone and bring it to your child's pediatrician. Red flags would be problems growing and labored breathing. ...Read more

I'm 19 & had a cold, now have a bad chesty cough and it sounds almost like whooping. Chest hurts when I cough too much, feels like im swallowing knives?

See Doctor: Symptoms that start with a mild cold then progress acutely should be evaluated by your doctor. Depending on how long you have had your symptoms and the findings on exam you might require a course of antibiotics or a chest x-ray to see if you have developed a pneumonia. See your doctor so that you can be evaluated properly and receive treatment if indicated. ...Read more
