I've had myasthenia gravis for 2 years now I'm on mestonin 180 er twice daily and 120 mid day. Gabbapentin 600 three times a day for syringomyelia. Topamax for migrants from a pineal mass. I'm a little short of breath, my throat and diaphragm hurt when I cough I'm weak and no fever. And yes to the difficulty swallowing

Thank you Susan, for all the information,
There can be an infection.
Fever may not always be high.
This can be viral in nature.
White foam can come from it.
Green color can be seen at the end stage of viral or bacterial infection.
Sometimes, difficulty in swallowing from muscle weakness can cause saliva to collect & form foamy mucus.
Reflux can be a factor.
As there is spasm of diaphragm, shortness of breath, I would advise to take an examination by doctor asap to rule out a lower respiratory infection.
Doctor can take a few tests like blood count, Chest X ray, sputum test etc.
Treatment would then follow accordingly.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
