I've had the worst rattling in my chest the last few days. Right in the center. I took a bunch of reflux medications hoping that would help some, but not much luck. I know I have a problem with my trachea/esophagus in that area where my esophagus is a bit narrowed and my trachea has a soft spot on it, so this might just be me with my weird anatomy.
But when I'm really sick, I cough and cough, until I eventually cough up some nasty looking mucus thing. Then it gets better. But it takes days, and my ribs are killing me! That and the rattling is a bit un-nerving.
Does anyone else get this when they are in the middle of a flare? Or am I just lucky?
