windwalker and everyone I am wondering if anyone else has this experience. I cough tremendously with bronchiectasis but……98% of the time it is only on the right side of my throat. Not both sides. I have a sore throat on right side — it even feels sore for my tongue to touch. Phlegm comes up only on right side. And now, I kind of feel like my right ear is wanting to hurt. Mayo's did sinus surgery on right side thinking perhaps it wasn't draining properly but I truly can't tell any difference in that. I just can't understand why if all this phlegm is from bronchiectasis that only one side of throat coughs and is sore. Anyone have any ideas???? I mentioned it to several doctors throughout the last few years and they look at me like I don't know what I'm talking about. They almost have me convinced (Ha)….. Hoping someone has a suggestion or an answer or at least has experienced the same.

@auntnanny Jan, I do not have an answer for you on that. I have had localized sore throats before. Yours could be related to your surgery. Only thing I can suggest is gargling with warm salt water 3-4 times a day. You may want to buy a stand-up model room air purifier. The filter is reusable; just rinse out occasionally. I have one. I should use it every night, but mine is old and loud. I should run it for several hours before I retire for bed. I use it mainly during heavy pollen season. Mine is made by Honeywell and I got it at Lowe's. Sharper Image sells them too. Look for a quite one.
