Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Not yet but as they have a habit of blaming my chronic condition or claiming it is allergy, it's not worth the huge amount they charge to visit them without asking your advice first. One thing that seems to be much worse is the pain. It's almost like it's in between the ribs but on chest and back. Like they are too tight, or the muscles are, or perhaps there is myofascial knots or something going on as it feels incredibly tight but also the sharp, shooting pains are in different places. I'd really like your advice, esp. on how to manage and/or lessen it. I agree with what you said before about there being more than one thing going on but concerned that this level of pain and the ongoing shortness of breath. The symptoms returned after a v nasty bout of flu but not immediately. Could the mucus be causing the pain? Or something in the fascia or muscles? Thank you ever so much.
Awful. Worst case I've had I think! I was sick constantly for 24 hours then had a fever/temperature and it lasted 10 days. Then felt curiously well, with even the other symptoms far less. The pain was back to 'normal' pain, as opposed to this different quality of pain and no longer so severe. The breathing was better, even the tinnitus far less but since returning it seems to be getting worse v quickly. Also, my nails started growing again briefly when feeling better but have now returned to being brittle and thin, which also started when all these symptoms did in Oct 2013. It's been ever since then that the breathing became a little short but had a few 'episodes' where I almost went to the emergency, as I couldn't catch my breath and was so dizzy. The lumps of white mucus that I coughed up before is also back. Just want to feel a little better. Thanks lots for your help.
What is causing these symptoms and how to heal them.
They're all detailed above.
Oh can you not see the previous q's above? It started after an infection, first the tinnitus, which we've established as ET blockage but since then, and increasingly since, the body's production of mucus is so excessive. The nose needs to be blown frequently or blocks, not as completely as before the neti but within 20 minutes. The pain in my chest and back, which is intense and sharp but with a more general bruised pain. I am taking an additional 10-20 mg of oxycodone to cope with this. The sore throat too but most concerned about the shortness of breath. After the most innocuous task I can't catch it and heart races too. I feel dizzy, also every time I stand but maybe low blood sugar or BP, worsened by the options perhaps. The bebreathing and pain where it is worries me but what reasons would the body have to over produce so much mucus? It feels a bit like it's stuck inside my throat a few times a day, but then comes up. It's thick and usually white. The other less solid, is brown or yellow and I often get things come down or up tarrather into my mout, which is also obviously not pleasant! The tinnitus won't lessen and is louder enough in the left ear to cause hearing loss /difficulties on that side, more recently have it but less in the right ear. The heart pupitations only happen after exertion but not much exertion. Could the back also be mucus causing the pain? Worsening it? I'm longing to heal these symptoms. Thanks in.advance.
Not since Dec but as I said, it lessened a great deal post flu but returned around 2 weeks after that.
No but is that OTC? I would like to know the cause, not just how to treat the symptoms. Why is my body producing so much mucus? Thx v much.
No, I'm not sure what you mean by that! Can you tell me what could cause these symptoms? What conditions create a bruised feeling around the chest and upper back? Or the additional sharp, shooting pains? Why the body would produce so much mucus and secretions? TY v much.
Can you answer my Qs, or do you need them put in a new Q to reply?
You've already asked me that but as your earlier diagnosis/discussion hasn't resolved the symptoms, I am asking what it could be. If you are only interested in the mucus and not the other symptoms, I'll ask a doctor who can help.
Still need an answer and solution, thanks Shantal. So yes, if a Dr could answer that would help.
Obviously I need an answer. I thought that's what this website offered. Perhaps I should start again given how much time Dr Chip wasted by his one word replies, pain he caused by that too. Is it not urgent having shortness of breath, chest and back pain, wheezing etc.? Really disappointed by this service.
Which antibiotic and brochodialator? The same again or a different ones? Can you tell me if this is a permanent condition? Will it get worse? What should I do to lessen the symptoms and pain? Thanks v much.
Can you name the antibio?
Does that cover all the symptoms? The pain that needs 20mg oxycodone to manage, the mucus lumps that come up through the day, the numbness, the extremely loud tinnitus, dizziness etc? obviously the inability to breath and wheezing too. I'm confused as when I had an infection, the flu, was the only time the symptoms lessened, so the opposite of what you are saying but without a name for the antibioantibioti can't take any.

OK, thank you. What dose and duration do I need to ask for? thanks again.
Hi there, I was about to give you a positive rating but seen that AZITHROMYCIN is contraindicated in both neurological diseases and palpitations, both of which I obviously have. Is it safe with CRPS? I also have read more on Asthmatic/B but don't have a cough, the pupitations don't seem to be associated with that though obviously asking as could be wrong but also now been through 4 courses of antibiotics for this set of symptoms, is this the strongest one or can you advise an alternative that is safe with neurological conditions and irregular heart beats. Thanks v much.
Thank you. Is that the same 500 mg twice daily for 5 days and the 500mg once daily for 5 to 7 days?
I've now finished that prescription but no change on the symptoms. What is next?
