Could use some positive thoughts...

My middle son is experiencing some throat issues that are causing him constant coughing fits. He has missed several days of school, seen his primary care doctor, an allergist, and today an ENT. He is on 3 different prescriptions and still getting no relief. He is scheduled to go into the ENT again this week to take video documentation of his throat when coughing and speaking. If they are unable to determine what the problem is we are probably going to have to take him to Children's Mercy Pulmonary for further evaluation.

Please send him some thoughts and prayers for some kind of resolution to all this.

I have gone thru this as well.

Yep, ruled that out as well. It's just bizarre.

If you have ruled out asthma thats good but Albuterol is helpful with multiple breathing issues. The coughing without narrowing of the airways could be some kind of allergin setting off the cilia in the throat. Albuterol could help that. It won't hurt. It really has no bad side effects. But like others have said, doctors are reluctant to prescribe it.

Any questions, you know me in RL. Don't hesitate to ask anything.
It raises blood pressure and heart rate, but I doubt it is a big deal for an otherwise healthy kid.

I assume you've given the kid antihistamines? I'm sure you have but if it is allergy related it will help.

All the best man. Hopefully your boy is in and out and it is something simple, quick, and painless.

He has his appointment this afternoon. Just praying for some concrete findings so we know what is going on. If they still can't figure it out I'm going to scream.

You ever do any mold checks of your house? Send him away to stay with relatives for a week to see if it clears up any?

How do mold checks work? I've heard that dust mites can cause major issues as well.

My major allergy is dust mites. And yeah, even on three inhalers, sanitizing all bedding every two weeks, and allergy covers on mattress, box springs, and all pillows, I still have some coughing problems.

NOw they are saying it is GERD so we have to force him to overcome his fear of swallowing pills. I hate the idea of having him on omeprozole for a long term. Doc also says he has to learn to stop his coughing on his own as well. Yeah. Thanks for nothing. Nights are even more traumatic now because we have to tell him to try and stop coughing, which only upsets him because no matter how we try to talk him through it, he can't make it happen.

I just pray the omeprozole is a short term fix that can be stopped soon after the coughing stops. I don't want him stuck on that shit for the rest of his life.

That's terrible man, I couldn't imagine.

Health is so taken for granted.

My boy had the hiccup's for days on end. The doctor said to take Maalox and
have him relax his breathing. Worked quickly until he would start running around and start it up again.

I want to say though I'm glad it isn't a major health issue Guru and that it sounds like he might get back to normal in a few days maybe. Best thought's and prayers for your family.
