Common Questions and Answers about Chest congestion white mucus

chest

I can constantly feel accumulation of mucus in my airway and upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>. I feel like I am choking on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, it wears me out. I have been getting these visual migraines every day/bright zigzag light in my vision and dull headache which last 30-40 mins. No chest pain with the cough. I am wearing a Miami-J collar pretty much all the time and no neck or arm pain like before. I am doing all the normal things for a congested cough and cold. OTC meds, fluids, etc.
This can cause chest tightness and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> congestion to the point of coughing up phlegm. A nasal wash helps remove <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> 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. This may prevent the postnasal drip and chest problems. To get the most out of a nasal steroid spray use it after doing a nasal wash.
After being on Copaxone for 3 months I developed difficulty breathing and severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> congestion and it will not go away even after taking broad spectrum antibiotics. My dr. denies any connection with Copaxone. But it is the only thing that has changed in my life - taking Copaxone injections. Has anyone heard of a link.
Is a Hacking Cough with sounds of congestion in the upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> typical of COPD? My mother for the last month would expel white colored globs of mucus periodically after a few minutes of coughing. She has no fever nor loss of appetite. Her geriatrician tried Azithromycin 500mg tabs for 5 days which seemed to help but then the coughing and globs returned. The doctor then doubled her Pulmicort doseage in her Nebulizer for two weeks to see if that helped plus using Robitussin as needed.
i hve been suffering from high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> from last 8 months. im not able to solve the problem as im taking homeopathy treatmen.
I have read several messages from people with similar symptoms such as mine - cough mainly in AM with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, again in the evening. I plan to try some of the suggestions such as taking an antihistamine/decongestant and a remedy for GERD (although I do not have symptoms of that particular problem). I have been hacking for about 3 months, have been to the doctor who has given me antibiotics along with cough medicines. Seems to help a bit but then I'm hacking again.
I have polyps in my sinus which cause congestion and post nasal drip. I'm running to the bathroom frequently to cough up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> from my throat. You could try using a neti pot and see if your symptoms will improve at all. Acid reflux is also capable of giving you a sore throat and cough.
Are you on potassium also being that you are taking a water pill that depletes potassium? Are you coughing up any clear or white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>? This is a sign of CHF (congestive heart failure). A person also can have CHF with actually coughing up phelm, only having a cough.
I have woken recently on a number of occasions feeling I am suffocating and someone is pushing on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>. I have a sticky white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> that is constantly in the back of my throat but does not block my nose. I have dry eyes and a dry mouth and drinking does not help clear it, only a loud long snort slightly dislodges it. When I clean my teeth I retch as I cannot swallow. I have tried beconaise and sudafed as well as other nasal sprays, nothing works.
I have a variety of things going on here. I'll try to keep it as simple as possible. About 4 weeks ago I began to have a dry, unproductive cough that resulted in a dry/sore throat, as well as a hoarse voice. About 3 days into it, the cough became VERY productive. After about 2 full weeks, the coughing become MUCH LESS FREQUENT, but still there. In fact, I STILL have a cough (not NEAR as bad as before....but I still do have to cough).

I have been on prednisone more than off since the beginning of July due to cough, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> discomfort and dyspnea. The cough is productive with the sputum being thick and white. I had blood flecks in it twice during my hospitalization but none since. My FEV1 is down 11% from when I left the hospital. I am currenty on 40mg of prednisone a day, Dulera (200/5), Qvar (80mcg), Theophylline CR (just starting it again), singulair, albuterol PRN (2-3x a day), mucinex, zyrtec, rhinocorft, and achiphex.
Reason why I'm still worried about this off and pressure is because I use to smoke and I have this congestion with thick white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> that I had for a while(have no cough, no chill, no other serious symptoms).
I keep pulling out the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, but there is always more there! The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> is often clear, sometimes white/cloudy in spots and quite sticky. It is usually thinner than the nasal mucus, but it is even more irritating... It very often feels as though I cannot breathe and that I am choking! This has caused me a tremendous amount of anxiety. Can someone reassure me that it is impossible to choke or not breathe due to mucus in one's throat?
If there is anyone out there who has my problem too,,, excessive white sticky <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, post nasal and cough,,, DO NOT GOTO YOUR GP PLEASE! You'll save money by going Alternative and I hear its pretty rare for a practising Doc to refer you to Alternative med! Mine did and I went back and secretly thanked him big time! He said he wasn't surprised at my results and said he understand if I'm angry with the Med Industry.
the constant wheezing shows itself and I cough up white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>. The strange sounds in my nose and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> baffle me. Four months I am wheezing. Where do I go now. What tests? I do have asthma, but it has never presented itself this way. It was very occasional when I became stressed or during ragweed season. Why do doctors only listen to your chest and quickly come to all kinds of conclusions. I only got this after I had a cold or flu and it was four days after I received this years flu shot.
For the past four years, I've experienced a strange rubbing sound/sensation in my lower throat/upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> area. It occurs only whenever I twist my torso from side to side, such as when exercising, or quickly turning to the side via pivoting at the waist. It feels & sounds like something is causing friction. I cannot pinpoint where it is coming from, but it seems to be my lower throat/upper chest, somewhere around collarbone level. It seems to be located within the windpipe or esophagus.

I cannot recall having this problem to this extreme degree before being sick, however I do know that I've had more mucus production in the past year, while living in this older house, than I have during any other part of my life. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> tends to be white to yellow in color, always in small amounts, and thick. I find myself clearing my throat and swallowing constantly to try to relieve the mucus in my throat.
My throat is redish with a few circles raised with a center white dot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>-like substance. I have been oral rinsing with peroxide and it relieves the sores a little. I'm worried because i have no fever, headache, muscle ache, itching, coughing, chest congestion or sinus issues. The sores don't hurt but i know they are there, i have taken a q-tip and swabbed off the white stuff on top of the "sores" and then later it comes back.
ALL OF A SUDDEN this evening my throat became scratchy, then I developed a cough and runny nose. After a few hours I could hear congestion in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>. After a few cups of hot team with honey, lemon and a little brandy i spit up a greenish color mucus that eventually turned clear. Most of the rattle in my chest is gone, but my throat is sore and I do not have a fever. What is going on???
For one day I was blowing very drippy mucus out of my nose every 4 or 5 minutes, consisting of 1) the brownish yellow mucus I have been coughing in the past, 2) plain white, thick <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, and finally 3) never before seen peach-coloured <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> as well. Currently, mucus is not as excessive or drippy as it was for that one day. I am really scared that this is a permanent thing. What concerns me most is this asthmatic component to my coughing.
Pseudoephedrine is used to treat nasal and sinus congestion, or congestion of the Eustachian tubes that drain fluid from the inner ears. Prednisone is a corticosteroid. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation and also suppresses the immune system. It should not be stopped suddenly, the doctor would give advice on how to reduce or stop taking the medication gradually.
I've had congestion and continuous sinus infections my whole life. A year ago I had an ultrasound done on some surgically fixed hernia that hurt. I was told they were fine but not told I now have a hiatal hernia. My coughing became debilitating. I left that doctor and went to a pulmonologist. He started me on tummy meds and Qvar inhaler. I still coughed up major globs of white musus. xrays were fine. He started me on 40mg of predisone. It has my cough managable.
