Severe chronic cough

Hello I am 34 years old male.
6 feet Height
115 kgs

I am suffering from severe chronic cough. Its been there for atleast 1 and half to 2 years.

I was a smoker for 15 years. I stopped smoking in January 2021.

Recently i was diagnosed with a heart condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. I am taking Beta blockers for that. Metoprolol Succinate 100 mg tablet once a day. I cannot stop it.

Cough

Cough varies time to time. Sometimes i cough until i cannot catch breath anymore and my chest feels very congested and its hard to take breaths. Also yellowish mucus comes out while coughing.

Sometimes i cough to clear something up in the throat.

Sometimes i cough to bring up the mucus and then it leads to a bad cough because my throat feels very sensitive now.

On a bad day cough is there for the whole day. Lot of mucus. Its more of irritation at the place where my neck ends. It feels more like i try to cough to get that irritation away. On bad days cough leads to headache and rarely i spit out mucus with little red colour added to it after coughing for long time. i need to clear my nose lot of times. Nose is runny on bad days.

On a normal day I get cough when I lie down on bed. Sleeping with my head on couple of pillows helps. I get cough whenever i speak for long time. Also i get cough when I laugh even for couple of seconds.

Cough disturbs sleep. When I am awake on bed i feel that mucus has accumulated in the throat. If i spit it out immediately i sometime avoid cough . If i don’t spit it out because i am lazy and sleepy i get cough. I wake up 2-3 times every night. I snore while sleeping. i can get long sleeps. I wake up easily. I am a light sleeper.

I met a lungs specialist couple of months ago to get a better idea of my cough. She suggested some tests and told me that lungs look fine and she thinks i have allergies. She prescribed cetirizine (anti-histamine) and nasal spray. Taking a cetirizine helped me a lot with getting good sleep and also cough is reduced. As soon as i stop cetirizine i get severe cough again. Nasal sprays also helped me a little bit but cough and congestion comes back as soon as i miss one day. I tried using them for weeks and tried stopping them. Right now i am not using cetirizine or nasal spray.

I met an allergist and found out that i have allergies towards horse,mouse, pollen, mold. I tried using an air purifier at home. I don’t think it helped much.

I cough after speaking for long time. I cough as soon as I laugh. Small laugh also triggers cough.

I need to spit out mucus that has been accumulated in the throat every morning. Its yellowish in colour. Mucus is mostly yellow in colour, sometimes its white in colour.

As soon as I lay down on bed i hear some strange noises where my neck ends.

As soon as I wake up my throat feels very dry. I like to be in cold environment. I like cold air but i am afraid that it might make my cough worse.

When I check my uvula in mirror i see it is enlarged. When I went to an ENT doctor he told me my uvula is very big.

Nose

nose is blocked almost whole time. One side of nose is always blocked. The block clears as soon as i roll on the opposite side in the bed. If i stay for more time on the other side the nose block is shifted to other side.

Eyes

History
couple of years ago there was a swelling of upper eye lid. It never went away. I still have it. When checked with eye lid specialist he couldn’t see anything wrong. He gave me steroids for a week. It reduced swelling then. But swelling came back after couple of days. He wanted me to use higher dosage of steroids. I didnt like the idea as it was giving me lot of side affects. Recently my left upper eyelid also has swelling.

Current
Both upper eyelids are swollen. Right eye has a little redness to it. It has been there for couple of years.

Right eye keeps discharging plain water. Sometimes right eyelid itches. Not a bad itching. Right eyelid pains a little when dehydrated.

Left eye feels almost normal except upper eyelid swelling.

Ears

Ears feel itchy whenever i sneeze. The itchy feel starts at back of mouth ear uvula and ears also start the itchy feeling.

I think i have a little swollen tonsils. I can feel them on both sides of my neck.

My lips feel dry at times but I don’t feel like drinking water. I have to voluntarily drink water to stay hydrated. Thirst isn’t that natural to me.

I crave sweet food a lot. Sometimes i overeat sweet food and also overeat food. I love food.

After every meal i burp a lot for sometime. I pass gas lot of times in the day.

Recently i observed that leaves i eat come out as it is in the stool.

I get offended very easily. I am very competitive and very ambitious.


Before finding this website I wanted to give a try to homeopathy and i could not find a doctor in USA. So i tried medicines by myself. Last year i used Nux Vomica 30c for sometime. It helped me when i overeat.


Last couple of days i used FERRUM PHOS 6c AND KALI PHOS 6x. I used both of them 3 times a day for two days. I felt a little relieved but not much. Then i used LACHESIS MUTUS 6c 3 times a day for two days. I think it made my cough worse. yesterday my cough was very bad. I stopped them now. I took one dose of nux vomica 30c.

1 dose for me is 5 palletes.

Feedback:

Amount of mucus is reduced at least by 30-40%

Right now I have bad cough as soon as i eat and as soon as I get up in the morning.

As soon as i lie down on my back I feel that there is some mucus in the throat and also may be in lungs. I hear some sort of sounds while laying on my back, but previously I use to start the cough immediately after I lie down. That improved I am not coughing when I lie down. The mucus in throat as soon as I lie down does not come out even if i try. This is bothering me a lot.

Throat is still sensitive but for sure it became less sensitive.

Nose:

During the day nose is somewhat clear when I compare to before. But when I get up during sleep I feel there is a nostril block. It does not feel blocked most of the time in the day but when I check to see if its blocked or not I realize its blocked. Before starting medicine it was very inconvenient with nose block but now its lot better comparitively.

Number of times i sneeze definitely decreased. But I am still sneezing just after getting up in the morning.

Eyes:

Previously both eyelids were swollen. Left upper eyelid swelling decreased little. It decreased to the extent I could see difference but others could not see much of difference. Redness in the right eye is still the same.

Sleep :

I am waking up in the middle of sleep. But going back to sleep in some time. I need not go to toilet but I feel the urge of clearing my throat. I spit yellow phlegm.

Phlegm is yellow in colour early in the morning and in the night when I wake up from sleep.

During the day after I eat the phlegm is white in colour.

Cough:

After eating the cough is very bad. It starts and goes on for atleast 30 seconds. I will try to send out the byte of my cough as soon as possible to you. Coughing hard started a new pain for me just below my stomach to the left.

I am still coughing when I have long conversations during my work.

Voice:

My voice has changed a little. It became a little husky. I sing sometimes. Nowadays I am not able to sing at all. My voice doesnt support.

Ears :

Ears start itching when I sneeze in the morning. Apart from that last week I felt one ear is closed all the time. It feels like both ears are closed and after some tries to open them I can successfully open right year but not left one. It feels like its closed all the time.


My Diet:

One big cup of coffee with milk in the morning
oats for breakfast

Then I take first dose of medicines

a curry, yogurt with rice for lunch. Sometimes non vegetarian for lunch.

Then I take second dose of medicines

Tea with biscuits in the evening

Very lite dinner with curry and yogurt with rice.

Then I take 3rd Dose of medicines.

Then I take heart medication. Beta Blocker.

Please do let me know if you think I have add or remove something from my diet.

Hello Doctor. Sorry I could not give feedback before.

I am still using all the medicines as it is.

Drosera 30c once a day
Kali Muratricum 6c 3 times a day
Kali Sulphuricum 6c 3 times a day
Magnesia Phosphoricum 6c 3 times a day
Hepar Sulphur Calc 30c 3 times a day

My cough is 95% less now.
Last week I coughed only once but its not spasmodic. But my throat felt very congested when I was coughing. That congested feeling was there for 5-10 mins.


Throat

I have pain in the throat. I feel the pain when I try to drink water by lifting the bottle in air. When I lift my head up and swallow I feel pain in the right part of the throat. I still have to spit out phlegm whenever I lay down on my back.

I had this pain for couple of days last week. Pain was there on every swallow. Pain reduced after couple of days. Now it only pains when I lift my head up and swallow. Pain is bearable.

I have been working very hard last couple of weeks. My eyes are swollen very much.

Eyes

My eyelids are very swollen. Right eye has a red spot and both eyes are very itchy. I feel like rubbing them all day. Eyes are very watery as well. When I am a little dehydrated eyes become very itchy and it leads to headaches some times.

Eyes are the biggest problem now. They are very much swollen and itchy. Right corner part of right eye has very small balloon like thing and it is red. Its very itchy. No issues with vision, but as soon as I get up eyes are very very swollen and some times I see dual vision which becomes good after couple of minutes.

Nose and Phlegm

The phlegm is yellow-brownish colour.
Nose feels very dry all day. It feels maximum dry as soon as I get up in the morning. Total amount of phlegm has reduced very much.
One side of my nose is blocked always as soon as I get up from bed.
One side of nose is partially blocked during the day.
I sneeze as soon as I get up in the morning. As soon as I sneeze my ears start itching.

Sexual

Sexually, the amount of sperm released is very less. This is there from many days. Nothing recently. I never mentioned this before. Wanted to mention this as well this time. There is some small ball sort of thing that is there on my testicles. I am not sure if its normal. Its there on both of them.
