I hope you are getting some relief from your chest congestion. Mucus is like poison to the lungs and it must be released for both the sake of your health and your comfort! A natural mucokinetic is found in salt therapy. You should either breathe in the steam from a saline solution with your head tented over a bowl (the economic alternative) or check out the salt pipe inhalers (dry salt inhalation therapy) at: http://www.saltrocks.

My alergy presents as very loose and fluid chest congestion - if unchecked it get to the point of sounding like pneumonia. I am alergic to Mt Red Cedar and some other alergens - mostly fall and spring, but recently realized dairy products and some fruits cause the same effect. Perscriptions such as clarnex and singular used to keep it at bay and I didn't need to be on it constantly, but recently it is getting worse and I always seem to have a productive cough.
I came down with a bad case of bronchitis about a month ago and just got over the coughing last week. I was on doxycycIine which cleared it up pretty quickly. I still have congestion in my lungs every day since. I have returned to my daily exercise routine last week which consists of 45 - 60 mins on a treadmill. I can work out without any problems but my lungs feel like they usually do after a workout all day and then the congestion sets in again overnight. I don't have any SOB either.
My mom has had really bad chest congestion and coughing for about 3 weeks now. She also has some chest tightness. She sounded terrible today when I called her. I'm worried because she had 3 stints put in her heart about 3 years ago and has heart disease. Could the chest congestion have anything to do with her heart? I'm just a little worried about her and wondered. Thanks for any info on this.
I have a constant Nasal drip.
Postnasal drip is drainage from the nose and sinuses drippings down the back of the throat and irritate the lungs. This may or may not be related to allergies. This can cause chest tightness and chest congestion to the point of coughing up phlegm. A nasal wash helps remove mucus and bacteria from the nose and sinuses. This can temporarily reduce the postnasal drip and make it easier to breath. A prescription nasal steroid spray decreases nasal swelling and mucus production.

I have been having nighttime congestion for a little over a week. I am totally fine all day and night until bedtime. I congest up, and occasionally have greenish sputum(but not always). I get to the point where I can't get a preoper ful breath. Sleeplessness. No chest pain, no hypertension. Although I have recently had a sinus infection. I have had 10 days of AMOX CLAV 875 mg 2 daily for 10 days. Still congested.
Plus, I wake up in the morning and my chest is congested. Sometimes when I first get up, it hurts to take a deep breath, as if it would hurt when you inhale water. However, once I stand up and cough once or twice, it goes away for the entire day and I forget about it. The only time I ever feel this during the day is on a weekend if I slouch down on the couch with my feet at the edge of the ottoman and my knees drawn up.
It seems like my sinus symptoms are getting better, but the weakness in the knees has stayed with me as well the chest congestion/breathing issue and the trouble swallowing which has been a little bit better with the advil. Do you think that I just have a viral infection that has caused all these symptoms and my body is trying to get rid of the virus? Do you have any suggestions of any other things I can do or any tests I should be tested for?
The research I have done shows that these and other fungi can cause respiratory issues like chest pain, congestion, cough, lung scarring, and even masses in the lungs. Your additional symptoms of night sweats is also very common with these infections. I don't know if this helps or not, but I hope you will keep us updated.
