Fibromyalgia Cancer I've Heard That A Persistent Dry Cough Can Sometimes Be A Symptom Of Undetected Cancer. Is There A Link ?

I've heard that a persistent dry cough can sometimes be a symptom of undetected cancer. Is there a link ? - fibromyalgia cancer

My dear mother Anne, who usually felt bad, it was a persistent dry cough. His "cough" often seemed to fit. According to undergo numerous medical procedures, doctors and specialists could not determine the cause of their illness or cough. My mother said that the cough is often a sign of cancer. Three years later, Jessica was diagnosed with colon cancer and the disease died 2 years later. Unfortunately, my mother developed a non-smoking, the same cough, Anne, from eating, drinking, laughing, and nothing else. Also went to a pulmonologist who was not in a position to give a diagnosis. You and I have suffered many ailments, and both of fibromyalgia and lupus, but this list as a possible symptom of cough. My mother is my best friend and soulmate, and I can not imagine life without them. At 65 she still lives much more to do, like walking down the aisle with me and took his young son. All suggestions are welcome


  1. If the cough from eating, drinking is causing, maybe I could GERD (acid reflux), a dry cough is common with what is already happening in the consumption of food or drink. My husband wanted. It has been tested for allergies. I cough allergy and cough were "attacked," what appears to be no rhyme or reason, and that was my diagnosis. I take Singulair and Nasonex and help. Just a few ideas. Good luck love.

  2. Lupus, FMS and other fall into a big umbrella called Mixed Connective Tissue Disorders. They are predominantly of autoimmune origin. When you read about them, a dry cough may be a number of other diseases, an approximation, lupus can accompany them. Do more research online and MCTD see what I mean. Best wishes.

  3. Sorry for the friend of your mother, but the cough had nothing to do with the fact that she died of colon cancer do. The answer was the best "casual". The fact is that people tend to develop "dry cough" for a medical indication "not good" ... but I will provide a "test" you can at home, that "identifying the perpetrators" can do the cough from his mother to ...
    Take a look around the house ... and provide for the house. Is it "out damp and rainy? It is cold and wet in ... or it's out there" to be hot and dry, "or" inside warm and dry? "If it moist and cool, then it is must be dry" ... if some have to be hot and dry, moisten it. Because his mother is coughing "dry", that tells me is hot and dry ... so you need to add water "... it is very easy to do, by large bowls or trays of water in each room. Insert two (one on each side of the bed) in the bedroom of his mother sleeps daily arrival level "and# 039; water ... which can evaporate "completely" in a day or less and must be "entirely full" every night before bed. Cough, his mother, "" should, as soon as "air" at home ", which dampened enough" ... and yes, even if that means "dry cough" where he goes, just moisten at home ... and work if it is dry and wet ... make the difference in the world.
    Yes, cough "dry" is the sign of Cancer ... If a person is suffering from lung cancer or throat cancer. Otherwise, cough "dry" is usually just a matter of "a very dry environment," and "water is added to a slight cough and disadvantages of your mom feels much better. Humidity really help your fibromyalgia and lupus .. . If you read, "all you can find" You will see that "dry air" These conditions could deteriorate.

  4. Some medications have dry cough as a side effect. If your mother happens to suffer from high blood pressure? Take lisinopril? Check your medications, you will find the cough as a side effect.

    A dry cough is not always a sign of cancer. Since cancer at the most fundamental is the uncontrolled growth of a group of cells that usually appears in radiology and PET, CT and MRI. Colon cancer usually occurs in weight loss, change in bowel habits, or bloody stools. Usually metastases to the liver and sometimes first in the lungs, which can be detected by the image.

    Since both lupus may have respiratory symptoms, so it will be difficult to distinguish from other types of cancer. Lung cancer is often caused by smoking and is labeled as a squamous cell carcinoma. Adenocarcinoma of the lung is a cancer that does not affect smokers and the exact cause is unknown. It is a cancer that died, the wife of Christopher Reeve.

    A dry cough may be a symptom of post nasal sinuses, could be a subtle sign of disease of the gastro-oesophageal reflux, asthma, tuberculosis (highly unlikely), or various other things. As an alternative to his mother, an allergy to something in the air wlive here.

    The news that the house is the most persistent dry cough are not cancer and to better explain why lung cancer, which is shown in the pictures.

    Hope this helps.
