I'm 20 and i think I have LPR (silent reflux) My symtoms are snot that keeps coming up in mouth after eating and a wheeze sound if i take a big breath?

Yeah, maybe.: Reflux is really common. It is often more of an issue if one eats a meal right before lying down. On the other hand, eating is a stimulant of digestive juices, and often nose running is triggered by digestion and the foods can also irritate. Reactive airways can be triggered in susceptible ppeople by temperature, eating, exercise and trigger even full blown asthma. All treatable conditions. ...Read more

2 year old with stuffy nose, and cough that sounds like a bark? No fever, no wheezing, worse at night. How do I make him feel better?

See Doc re: Croup: When a child has a cough that has a "barking" quality, a doc should check them for an illness called Croup. A pediatrician should see your little guy today. Croup can have serious complications at times even requiring hospitalization. Since your child is young, he probably can't tell you how sick he really is. He should be assessed today and monitored closely. Rx treatment will help him get better ...Read more

Sound similar to inspiratory wheezing but through my nose not lungs that's daily and all day long? Some snoring at nightNever had asthma or allergies

Allergies: People do not realize you can have inflammation of the nasal walls without knowing you have allergies or even have tumors called polyps. I would recommend having your doc look into the nose to see what the problem is. You may be sensitive to foods or chemicals you are being exposed to or even medications. ...Read more

Mgt: A virtual consult may help to identify the diagnosis. The wheezing sound is a high pitched noise and can be associated with viral or bacterial illness. RSV is one example, and some offices test on site. If there is a fever,cough or respiratory distress please see the ED. A cool air mist humidifier can relieve symptom of congestion. ...Read more

What does a wheezing sound actually sound like? What does it mean to have a wheezing sound?

Whistling: Wheezing in your lungs is just like whisling with your lips. A lot of air is being forced quickly through a narrow opening, and the result is a whistling sound. And just like whistling, the pitch and volume can vary somewhat, sometimes pretty low and sometimes high. In adults, wheezing is usually asthma.

From last 6 months I am experiencing sudden cough with wheezing sound everyday which lasts for 20 minutes and go away. What can it be?

Sinus drip?: Good evening, sanderaika sudden cough with a wheezing is likely due to a sinus drip triggering a reactivity of the airway. When anything, including the discharge from the sinuses enters the airway, the tubes try to shrink in order to keep the secretions from entering, which cause wheezing, and a sudden cough expels the drip that already found its way in. Taking care of the sinus drip will be good. ...Read more

Wheezing : Wheezing after feeding is not necessarily normal. You should call your child's doctor to discuss.

If you think that she is having difficulty breathing, turning blue, or going limp, you need to call your doctor immediately or take her to the emergency room. ...Read more
