Hi forum, I get bouts of coughing up and spitting out pure white flem hundreds of times a day weeks on and weeks off. It's the flem that causes me to cough just to clear it so I dont have a cough as such, just sometimes loads of flem. When it goes it just goes. Often in the morning when it is present the flem makes me want to vomit and a couple of times I have vomited a bit to get it up.
lately i have been coughing up a lot of flem all day. Its green/yellowish, and it never seems to stop. I also have a very bad cough, especially in the mornings and at night. If i breath in heavy or yaln, it sets me off on a coughing ranpage. this has been happening for a bit over a week. what is wrong with me?

how long will bronchitis last? I was sick for over a month coughing,shortness of breathe, flem, wheezing... all of those have gone away except the wheezing.. sometimes its worse then other times.. I previously smoked for almost 2 years but at max 5 or 6 ciggs a day and hookah..
I've been coughing for about 2 months. I went to the doctor and he said that I had bronchitis, but it was pretty much gone so, he perscribed me cough medicine to supress the cough. It's been two weeks now and I have taken all the medicine, but still have the cough. Any ideas what it could be? -I don't smoke -I'm not around anyone that smokes -The doc ruled out allergies -The cough is sometimes with flem and sometimes without.

Taking prednisone and just when the fluid is clearing in my lungs a bad convulsive coughing attack caused me to tear what I believe are some of the intercostal muscles (between ribs)...now the fluid is building slowly because coughing it up is excruciating. My question is, should I avoid food or drink? It seems when I even have soup it ends up in flem? The pain when trying to cough is a ten on a 1 - 10 and going back into the hospital is of no comfort. They've done ekg's, xrays, etc.

Every morning he has a terrible cough and it continues throughout the day-just more so in the AM. He is constantly coughing up flem. He has tried several cough medicines, nothing seems to help. His doctor has not been successful in getting it to loosen up. I am looking to see if you have any helpful suggestions, new direction to take etc...I am concerned more now because when he coughs he gets coughing so hard and the flem is so thick it actually makes him choke.

I have a sharp pain in my left chest area and it hurts extremely bad if I take a deep breath. I am smoker so that doesn't help. Recently, I have begun to cough up bloody flem. I have begun taking vitamins to help my immune system fight this, but I am wondering if it will pass soon. I have to sleep partially sitting up as the pain is too unbearable to lie down, stomach or back. When it first started to occur, I ran a fever and began to vomit, since then the fever and vomit have passed.
Does anybody know what my diagnosis could be, and how to treat it. The mucus is comming from my lungs and it is very thick...maybe even a mucus plug. I have to let myself cough when it gets stirred up to try to bring up the brown mucus.

I had chest X-ray last week which confirmed pneumonia. I had told dr I had been coughing up blood for several days and they asked if it was streaked and I said yes. I saw a description on a web page using the description of looking like a partially scrambled egg and that is what it really looked like, not really streaked but kind of mixed. Now I have been on 500 mg Cipro for 4 of 7 days prescribed but still am coughing up same type of blood mixture.

Also, he had congestion in his chest. He could not cough up anything but felt flem was there. He went to the doctor and got antibotics. He also had a chest x-ray. The x-ray showed nothing. Also, the fever went away. The cough has continued. He has been back to the doctor three more times and, has had more antibotics. It is hard cough. The doctor did another chest x-ray yesterday and found nothing. He started taking breathing treatments yesterday here at home.
