    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Hoarseness

    I can barley talk, due to hoarseness, shortness of breath. My lungs actually feel heavy and have a burning sensation. I know that in the past I have headed straight for the ER. But, at this time, I want so much to stay out of the hospital if at all possible. I have a nebulizer and duo meds for it. I have been doing my own breathing treatments, however, I am not getting better. I took Mucinex a couple of hours ago, hoping to bring something up when I cough. Nothing yet. Just a very dry cough. Any suggestions to loosen this cough? Thanks
