Conditions with symptom: 'cough'
MY 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HAS BEEN SUFFERING FROM A DRY COUGH AT NIGHT TIME FOR THE LAST 6 MONTHS. WE HAVE SEEN OUR GP WHO PERSCRIBED ASTHMA INHALERS BUT THESE HAVE NO EFFECT ON HER NEITHER DOES COUGH MEDICINE. DURING THE DAY SHE IS A VERY ACTIVE CHILD AND SUFFERS NO SYMPTOMS WHATSOEVER WHICH MAKES ME QUESTION WHETHER IT IS ASTHMA OR COULD BE SOMETHING ELSE. ANY IDEAS?
My son is now 14 months I don't remember him without a cough and it's not going away he coughs so violently and brings up everything I hav spent the last 14 months extremely stressed he vomits so badly through his nose to and they are big vomits I've also noticed this cough starts whilst he eating sometimes and he keeps coughing till he brings his food up and then won't eat anymore weaning him onto food is difficult as won't eat much and wants his bottle and now he's getting constipated regularly when will he stop coughing so badly and the vomitting go states chest is clear X-ray done came back clear what could be causing this and I don't know what to give him to eat anymore
my 3 year old son has had symptoms of a cold for the past 2 years, runny nose, chesty cough,congestion,ear trouble.... we have taken him to the doctors, and we are told he will just out grow it, it makes him very tiered and miserable. we have been told it could be an allergy to something? help us help him please.
at the beginning of each cold, he will go through 1 maybe 2 nights where he really struggles to breath! one time we had to call the ambulance out, because he was that bad, it turned out to be an ear infection,but the said if we had left it any longer he would have started to fit....... its just really unfair for him, as he is never without a cold, and we dont no what to do! we were told it could be an allergy to something. but no, he has not suffered with broncilitus.
My son was like this and it was due to his adenoids being to larg and bloking the back of his nose, he had them out at 3 years and was so happy after his breathing was so much better and infections cleared up.
My daughters nusery have chicken pox going around. She has had a cold and a cough for over a wk now. Is this just a cold or the start of chicken pox do you think? We are due to go on holiday :-(
My 12 year old daughter has been frequently leaking urine whether she is judt standing or walking, she does not need to cough or sneeze or anything like that. Her dr says that if it doesnt go away and took bloods for kidney function and urine sample he thinks it may be gyncaelogical problem....when she heard this she has been asking me everyday why this is happening to her and is stressing her out!!!! PLEASE ADVISE ME ON WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSE
Hi I think I have worms and asked my GP to give me some treatments and his answer was that I was imagining.... I am not sure what kind of worms they are but I regularly spit out which I think are eggs, they are like grains of coucous and quite smelly. Sometimes I feel something in the back of my throught and I manage to disloge a bunch of these stuck together. I often cough and wheeze as well and have abdominal pains. What treatment should I take to get rid of this?
Sounds like you have a throat infection and what you are spiiting out is pus.
Hi, i know exactly what you have; tonsil stones. Google it and look at pictures. I get them all the time.
can anyone help with a worrying problem? my 9yr old son has a problem when eating, every time he starts eating he will come over all uncomfortable, and struggle to eat anymore.will go the toilet and be sick, this happens even after drink, he is undreweight and it is getting him down. he is under the hospital and has a camera down with it only coming back that he has inflammation. he will cough till he is sick with so much saliva. please can anyone help?
Have you tried cutting gluten out of his diet? this sounds exactly like me...I had the same problems since I was a baby but was misdiagnosed as an eating disorder (they thought the nausea and inability to eat much was all in my head). Finally diagnosed coeliac at age 21 xxx
My 3 1/2 year old son dribbles and spits alot. He seems to have an excess of 'fluid' which results in the dribbles and spitting. In addition to this it 'sounds' as though he has fluid in his chest. Over a period of a few weeks the fluid builds up, causes him to cough and eventually he coughs so much that he vomits the fluid up. It then starts all over again until he vomits a few weeks later. The ENT consultant had no idea, one doctor has suggested 'secretion asthma'. Another says that he holds his mouth open but that doesn't explain the chest and the vomiting. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
I have been In pain on the left side of my head/ear for the last two years after feeling something burst this side. I have had a CT Scan and there seems to be nothing showing on the scan causing the symptoms. Around four months ago I insisted swabs were taken and the doctors found I have had two different bacterial infections in my ear and nose. Which I was then treated with antibiotics for. The doctors think I may have glue ear/eustacian tube dysfunction in my left ear. I have a cough and been unable to clear my throat. My nose doesn't function very well, it doesn't produces any snot. I am allergic to penicillin so can only have certain antibiotics and the third lot of antibiotics I had this year has caused a rash all over my body which went down after a few days. I am currently waiting for a second ENT Consultant appointment. Is there anything I can do to reduce the frustration from the glue ear eustacian tube dysfunction? The only things I have found to help is to have a bath a couple of times a week in Epsom salts to help reduce the inflammation and to gargle with salt water and use Sterimar to clean my nose. I also find reducing the amount of dairy and sugar in my diet has also helped. I also have Bowen tecnique nearly every week and massage a couple of times a month. This helps the frustration a lot. I am 32 years old. Is there any thing else I could do?
