Productive cough and irritation of throat is sign of lower respiratory tract infection.

In my opinion you can take a broad spectrum antibiotic like amoxycillin and clavunic acid for a 3 to 4 days along with cough syrup.

If no relief than you must see an ENT...

I've had a cold x 2 weeks now. Productive cough (clear phlem), runny nose, sob, congestion ( tight chested). I saw my pcp and gave me a prednisone taper, amoxicillin, robitussin w/ codeine, advair 250/50 and ventolin.
I had my last dose of the prednisone yesterday. But x 3 days now, I have noticed when I blow my nose I have noticed a black sticky string of mucus along with the clear mucus. Is this normal?

No, you should not wait and should consult neonatologist as soon as possible.

Occasional cough related to MI - short of breath - occasional Blurred vision I have occasional blurred vision that lasts for few minutes. what is the cause of this? 3 years before I had MI, at the age of 14 developed arthritis with a bang of RA i.e. Rheumatic Fever .Now I am 63. The Current Cardiologist says I have anaemia. Legs get swollen if I sit few hours or stand for few hours. When I sleep I have to get up abruptly, as I get frequent Muscle cramps on my legs esp. above the ankles of leg. After MI I am suffering from short of breath. After conducting computer scanning angiogram I think doctors say I have one enlarged left ventricle .

Hello, I am 30 year old female. I m not very sporty and little overweight lady who also have desk based job. Untill recently I ve had not experienced many health issues, despite being diagnosed with obsessive compulsive eating disorder and bullimia approximately 10 years ago. Since then on and off I ve been precscribed FLUOXETINE and now OXCTACIN (appologies for bad spelling). I am also taking microgynon to prevent unvanted pregnancy. I have no children, loving partner and I m overall happy and positive person (or so I tell myself anyway:-). About 10 days ago I had started experiencing sharp pains on the right side of my body approximately just underneath my breast . Now it feels much more frequent and painful. Whenever I m moving my right arm (when dressing, washing up, even using punch hole r!) I can feel pain which becomes worse when I cough. I m usually not a panicky person however sometimes it takes my breath away and I feel my chest on the right side being tight:-( what should I do? I don t recall any accident, no changes to my lifestyle. Any suggestions would be most welcomed:-) Karolina from Poland X

This is in regards to a 47 year old male whom has never had any serious illnesses. He s 6 1 & weighs 185. He has been sick since last Nov. 2010. A lot of the systems have gone away, however he s continued to have a horrible cough that almost debilitates him at times. For 2 1/2 months straight, he coughed so hard that he would vomit pretty much every time. During that 2 1/2 months he lost 23 lbs. He no longer vomits but spits up something every time, to the point he now carrys around something to spit in during the day. He usually has to take a sleeping pill to get to sleep. However, that only last 3 or 4 hours before the cough will wake him up in the middle of the night, at that point we know we ll be up for at least an hour or more. Sometimes he coughs up a greenishj flem, other times more of a brownish flem, but most of the time it s foamy white flem. He s been on 3 different antibiotics, 2 different cough syrups, steroids, enhalers, cough drops and every other over the counter medicine we could find for his systems. They ve taken x-rays, had blood work done, stool samples, tested for Silicosis (glass dust), he s a tile setter and asbestos. It s been 7 months now, but the last 3 months the doctor told him he would just have to wait it out. Wait what out? He was stumped and never figured IT out. Nothing has changed in the last 3 months, he coughs as much as ever... PLEASE HELP!
