Chest tightness mucus

Common Questions and Answers about Chest tightness mucus


Things seems to have slightly improved for a small amount of time but I could never shake off this tightness of chest/tightness on full breathing. One concern was I had thick, yellow-dark yellow mucus for a few days straight at work(I work as a stocker overnight/around dust/etc.) and my temperature was fine. As well as this discomfort in my chest which is located about dead square middle of my breast cavity, sometimes in the ribcage/sternum with sensitivity touching below the sternum.
I have had chest tightness, coughing, trouble breathing, fatigue, dizziness and excess mucus. Over the weekend I had very bad chest tightness and could barely breathe. Trip to urgent care had me on my 3rd round of antibiotics and a 6 day tapered medrol pack. I am on day 3 of the medrol pack and yesterday was actually the only day I felt great - breathing normally, more energy than usual.
I feel like I got tightness in the center of my chest like the top part of my lungs wont open up... I don't have to much of a cough or mucus production and no fever. But I do have asthma and do smoke since I was 18 and am now 21. I asked him if he thought I had COPD or something like that and he said no because my lung capacity was at 96 percent he also stated that he didnt think I had anything serious. I am just worried that now it might be something serious now cause it wont go away...
Can mild reflux cause signficant chest tightness complaints. Only meds I take are TUMS and recently put on Lexapro for anxiety over this.
i have a question, i have been having a tightness in my chest for the last week and a half. What I have been feeling can be described as this: diffuculty breathing or just hard to catch my breathe ( especially when sitting up or standing, easier to breathe when lying down) When i first noticed this it was very very mild,but i it got worse after being around cigar smoke. I went to the doctor last wednesday, just to make sure i didn't have phemonia or nothing like that.
however, I’m still suffering from chest tightness/wheezing along with chest pain. The chest tightness/wheezing is worst in the morning, which, sometimes makes it difficult to breathe; the chest pain is in the sternum area and is always there; I would say the pain is a 4 on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the worst. To make matters worse, a few days ago I coughed up some blood when I woke up in the morning; it has made me very concerned.
lots of mucus in my throat, heart palpitations,racing heart beat after meals, chest and back tightness after eating mostly but other times as well, severe ache behind my left collar bone, transient weakness and tingling (lips hands etc.
Did you find a solution? I have the same thing throat tightness , not chest tightness only with exercise. Passed EKG. Love to walk for miles & do Zumba but afraid.
I get symptoms throughout the day and am taking 2 puffs morning and night of Symbicort which doesn't really seem to be helping with my symptoms which are chest tightness and I feel like I have mucus stuck in my chest and when I try to cough, all that comes up is mucus. This has been going on since November 2007. It is a very dry cough and hardly produces any mucus.
When someone has sensitive airways, as with asthma, this can trigger asthma type symptoms, including cough, chest tightness and mucus drainage in your throat. If your doctor determines that this is exercise induced asthma, a prescribed inhaler can be used 10 to 15 minutes prior to exercise to prevent these symptoms. Please read our Exercise-Induced Asthma MedFact at for more information.
I have similar problems with throat clearing, clear phlegm, cough, and these items commonly lead to chest tightness, and bronchial infections. It seems that postnasal drip is a big cause, food allergies are a definite possibility also. I found that the mucous would not clear on it's own for me, but if I take Mucinex daily with lots of water to stay hydrated, this seems to work well.

Right now the neck is too tight, I have keep taking Advil which is not good to relieve this tightness. I feel like no doctor cares to help and that I'm the only person in the area with this problem. It all started around the time I was experiencing symptoms of mono before I was diagnosed. I see another endo in November. What else can I ask for to see if this problem can be solved (aside from having the thyroid removed). I'm at my wit's end! Thank you for any help!
Respected sir Today i have seen mucus contain blood(red color). i have doubt why my mucus with blood ? its any disorder or infection............
The situation got really worse a month ago when I couldn't swallow my food + shortness of breath + chest tightness. One night while I was eating I felt pressure around my neck is like somebody is chocking me and started burping + hiccups but no vomiting or acid came out. It is like a painful hiccups that made me put my hands around my neck all the time as I feel the painful pressure. Then I started having pain at the esophagus & throat area with shortness of breath and chest pain.
The original pain was from front to back of my chest and produced tightness of breath with it. What was this and why did it occur - can you give me some ideas?
Hi have had throat tightness and chest pain tightness and sometime hard to swallow, my doctor asked me to take penicilin based antibiotics to clear up any cold symptoms and also gave me throat calmer tablets that are calming for allergy as well as a nose inhaler also alergy related from what I can read in leaflet - he also requested blood and urine samples and throat scan so I'm wonderign what this can be as he just told me we'll get to bottom of this and not explained more, the tightness in th
I've never had an asthma attack but I sometimes have wheezing, chest tightness and shortness of breath, but my dad says if it was asthma then I would've had an attack by now. What could it be?
It helps with the random shortness of breath and chest tightness during exercise, but it has done nothing for the cough and mucus. My mom told me ever since I was a baby I've had constant cold and sinus infections. As I got older I would have chronic respiratory infections that would lead bronchitis, pharyngitis, etc. I'm only 21, I don't smoke, and I stay active (when I am able to breath).
I'm sorry to have omitted from my recent question, the fact that I also have chest tightness and some wheezing when I exhale.
I've been having this tightness in my chest. Now, I'm a non smoking, weightlifting, healthy eating woman. I also have a ragweed (among other weeds) allegy, anxiety, AND high cholesterol. (if that helps at all) normally the chest tightness associated with my panic attacks only lasts until I calm down OR wake up after sleeping. I've been living in the city so it's been forever since I've had problems with my allergies.
I have had the same problem for exactly a year now and it's really become unbearable. I feel a constant tightness in my throat and every time I swallow, I have coughing fits.Throughout the day I will have to clear my throat and i always have clear mucus to clear. It's made it to the point where I don't looking forward to meals anymore b/c I know what to expect. I'm a big foodie and eating out in public is not enjoyable at this point.
Have you had a chest x-ray? I ask only because this could be related to your lungs, not your heart. If you had a small blockage or mucus build up in your lungs, it could manifest itself as a vibration upon breathing inward. This would not necessarily happen every time you breathe. Especially if it is related to a mucosal build-up, the vibration would only occur when the mucus was dislodged and therefore "vibrating" with the intake of breath.
- tightness in the chest - constant coughing up of mucus ( varying between dark yellow and White ) - fatigue - occasional higher heartbeat (especially when waking up) - very occasional mild dull headaches I was wondering if anyone here is familiar with the above and could offer advice on how to fix as I have spent a lot of money on doctors and gotten nowhere
I too have some chest pain, or tightness, but it's more bronchial related. i have asthma and the treatment has made it much worse. for me, it's like 'swimmers lung', where it feel like someone is stepping on my chest. it's difficult to breathe at times and i use my inhaler. i have a lot of mucus build up in my sinus and bronchial tube. do you have any history of asthma or allergies?
Tightness of chest, difficulty breathing, sinus drainage into the lungs cause mucus into the bronchial tubs. If the mucus is white, that can be an infection in your lungs. Asthma is a disease and it can be life threatening if not treated properly. I carry an inhaler, but season change can also trigger Asthma. Ask your doctor if it could possibly be asthma, because it can be a life threatening desease.
You don't mention any other symptoms, like coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing or chest tightness? GERD sometimes can cause problems where the stomach contents aspirate high enough up the esophagus to reach the voice chords or into your lungs. When it hits the sensitive tissue of the vocal chords it does damage and the response is to produce mucous.
I am not sure if I have a fever(no thermometer)and sometimes feel a little sick to my stomach. I have slight chest pain, described best as a tightness. At night, the tightness gets pretty uncomfortable. Any ideas as to what the problem is and if it was brought on by the abuse?
