For about the last year I have had these recurring symptoms that usually begin with inflammation in the throat area and some swelling. Then off and on the ducts on the inside of my cheeks swell and get sore. Sometimes I get a burning or stinging sensation on my tongue. Also sometimes the area under and behind my chin gets sore or irritated. Then comes a cough that sometimes produces phlem. Sometimes its yellow and sometimes frothy and white. I usually feel decent in the morning and the symptoms get worse as the day progresses. When the symtoms come on they tend to last a month or so and then I'll feel decent for a month to a month in a half then it comes right back. Recently, I have started having some problems with my digestive system. I had an abdominal ct scan performed and the report basically stated I have a thickening in the mucousal lining throughout my colon. Also had a soft tissue neck and throat ct scan with a nodule on my thyroid noted. I take meds for blood pressure. They are lisinopril 40mg. and atenolol 25mg. I was also on alot of antibiotics during that time for recurring staph. infections and was also infected with an clamydia. Does anyone have any ideas?

  • Sounds like a rare problem called hereditary angioedema. Are you a woman? If so, do the symptoms get worse around your period?
