Coughing green mucus in morning

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing green mucus in morning

coughing

For months at a time I get a little bit of morning mucus thats green or yellow in my morning cough. I have no fever, no major coughing, no serious shortness of breath. I feel bad...but I always feel bad due to fibromyalgia/disc/migraine problems. I do have allergies/asthma thats being treated - I take Singulair 10mg plus I have a rescue inhaler should the allergies get real bad. My last chest x ray was 2 yrs ago (at the hosp. for unrelated issues) and showed some scattered granulomas.
I was smoking it regularly, sometimes very heavily for about 7 months. Last week I started coughing up green thick mucus, and a couple of times there was a small amount of red blood present in clear mucus. I have a terrible cough, that is sometimes accompanied with dizziness. 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.
I am a 48 year old female, 5' 7" 145 lbs. I have had a chronic cough since 1991. My son was born in March of 1991 (after I was told that It would be unlikely that I could have children) and 5 months after he was born I experienced my first episode. At that time I was in California. We moved to Arizona and my cough continued. I began going to doctors about the Chronic Cough in Arizona. I cannot name all of the anti-biotics and steroids and anti-histamines and inhalers etc.
Hi, I used to have the problem of coughing and lot's of mucus after eating. If I laid down right afterward, the mucus would come up in my throat and it would feel as though I couldn't breathe. None of the over-the-counter antiacids helped me. It wasn't until I started taking Nexium that I got any relief at all. I also have post-nasal drip, so it was a combination of things that was causing the cough, but once I got those things treated, the cough and the mucus went away.
Sometimes it is clear,sometimes yellow and there are even times it has come out green or with brown chunks in it. The only way I can get rid of this mucus is by doing this HORRIBLE hacking and expelling it from my throat! I have tried antibiotics and expectorants.The antibiotics didn't help AT ALL and the expectorants don't solve the problem. I wake up every morning and have to "expel" anywhere from 2-3 LARGE chunks of this thick, snot like substance and I'm ready for it to STOP!!!
i can taste infection when i swallow and i keep coughing up mucus that has blood in it, what does blood in my mucus mean?
She some times throws up a foamy mucus, some times its yellow and other times she has thick green snots in it, she has a phlemy kind of cough other times dry. She recently started throwing up her food, we tried changing it thinking its food allergies, she ate it fine but threw it up the morning after. She also has on and off diahrrea, really bad to the point its watery and also she pooped out bloody jello.
I've been suffering for about a week but several months ago it was for almost an entire month Wake up inthe morning coughing up yellow / green mucus and then it goes clear but it's constant and so sticky - it won't even easily wash off the sides of the basin. Last time I used to wake up inthe middle of the night choking - really horrid problem and the lack f sleep only makes things worse.
If you don't have white spots in your throat (indicating strep) or yellow or green mucus, I would say it's just a common cold. I always feel worse in the morning and at night in terms of my allergies or when I'm sick.
I'd ask your doctor to send a mucus sample off to pathology to see if there is bacteria in it. I get blood in my mucus sometimes and I have a bacterial infection. Oh and I have post nasal drip too.
My nose seems to most of the time be quite stuffed, so I dont know if this is from dry sinuses or something like that, and there is no blood in the phlegm later in the day, just a small amount in the morning. Within the last two months, I have had a chest Xray and everything was fine on it, as well as hematology, where again everything was fine. This blood in the phlegm is actually starting to bother me, although I assume it's most likely a sinus thing, but cannot be sure.
12 for a repaired mitral valve that we were told was ripped. from the day after surgery she has been coughing. In the morning it is yellowish/green and then through the day it is clear. The coughing can be severe at times that it limits her ability to speak. Has anyone experienced this? She has had several chest xrays and they have been clear. She did have pneumonia one week after surgery and was hospitalized for another week. Any suggestions/ideas?
The coughing sessions go on for up to 2 hrs' at a time I can't believe how much white sticky mucus comes out. It is rarely yellow or green, although in the beginning of this mess it was. I rarely get anything out of my nose. I do use the Neil med rinses and when I use my albuteral for the asthma I can get a lot more mucus out. My head is like a sore ballon in the morning and I hate to even get out of bed because I know whats ahead for me ..all that coughing is hard on me.
Eating, talking, drinking, laughing, all cause the coughing episodes, and it often feels like the mucus is in my chest, but when I cough, it comes up(and out) from way down my throat.
Coughing up clear phlyem at night inthe morning throughout the day is my symptoms. It started about four weeks ago and there was green phlyem but has now beem replaced with clear. Anybody got any hints of what I have?
I have been in the Hospital 4 times this year,COPD. Very sick. And coughing constanly with mucus. Used Nebulizer, Advair, antibiotics and many things. Then I did a little research for myself, about when these attacks came on and eliminated many things first of all strong odors. perfums and aerosole sprays of any kind. Nuts, even peanut butter had a bad reaction so I stopped that, and I love nuts, they caught in my throat and I felt like I was strangling, I avoid milk products as well..
1/2 teaspoon cinammon or less (up to your tolerance) + 1-2 teaspoon in 1 cup warm water every morning. I try this and it keeps me warm and less neezing in Am. My children did not like this tea because of the strong cinimmon taste. Hope it will help. .
I've heard that bright yellow or green mucus can indicate the presence of bacterial infection, but of course, this isn't a definitive test. Also, I've only had the congestion for about six full days, and I know it may be hard to tell this early on if I'm dealing with just the cold or a secondary infection. The second is the leaking of cerebrospinal fluid.
)I am liable to gettting sinus infections,very badly,in past,and can even get them from allergies.(Like hot weather,pollen.)Is this sinus drainage in danger of giving me bronchitus easily? Should I use Flonaise instead?I read about the milk allergey,for mucus,and am horrified;do I have to give up milk? ugh. I also read about the salt water,and am trying to gargle salt water back,up thru my palate(rather than thru my nose,that hurts too much,)which sometimes gets the salt water into my sinus.
It helps heal the gut It also acts as a pre botic, this feeds the good bacteria in the gut. My stomach feel more settled.I still have mucus in the morning Which does seem to be related to what i eat,Wheat and milhk etc. I also take digestive enzyme with betaine HCI with meals.Plus ginger teasHope this may help others. Remember we are all different.It is so sad the doctors will not work with us.
you can imagine how dangerous this was wit me then vomiting all over the dash board of the car, out for a nice meal and a certain smell of certain food would have me threwing up all over the resturaunt table..my coughing is as exactly as is described in other comments in this tpoic to the letter . one other thing is my voice goes hoarse and last year i had to have vocal cord nodules removed, i fear these are back again..
Anywase as that started to go I started coughing and one night I coughed half the night,, As the heavy coughing started going away I now for the past 2 1/2 days have cough every once and awhile with a bit of green flem (worst in morning) and this A.M. I had a bit of blood in two of the coughs, A bit being less then a half a tea spoon. One looked kinda dryed and string like and the other looked a bit fresh like a dot.
I'm trying to figure out if I'm alone with coughing, gagging and hacking thick to thin and stringy mucus several times a day. This started 7 yrs. ago after a sinus infection. I never had sinus problems before. This has taken over my life. I have seen 4 ENT's and have had tests galore with no real help. I'm curious if any one else hacks out and up so much mucus you wonder where it all comes from.
Personally, I think that is one of the best things for hoarseness. But be very careful of mold in room with over use! In regards to mucus, try to target what food is causing the problem. For instance a while back the mucus was worse than ever for myself. I could hardly speak properly. Well, I had started taking a protein power smoothy after working out. That stuff is so loaded full sugars and stuff to clog you up.
I have used them both for more than a week and have seen a reduction from all day coughing to coughing here and there, mostly in the morning and if I try to exercise. The problem is the plegm is still as thick, discolored and nasty tasting as ever. I think it might even be getting darker. I have noticed a reduction in my energy level, but am not running a fever at all. It is really scaring me. I feel like I can't breathe as deep as I used to. I hope someone responds to this.
I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
) She also coughed up green mucous this morning, my mom saw that. I hate giving her medicine, but what else am I to do? She coughs alot, and has been sneezing ALOT. Should I give her the antibiotic? She spit over half of it back out. Her Daddy said to hold her nose closed next time I give it to her, and squirt in on the edge of her mouth. How do you think tha will work?
I have not had fever or flu like symptoms but I have a lot of green mucus that I have been coughing up for over a week and this morning there was a lot of blood when I blew my nose. My ears also squeak when I blow my nose. I am taking Mucus Relief DM and it seems to help but in the mornings is the worse.
Barb, I've never seen a nebulizer myself, but I believe that they are primarily for people with asthma. I think that there are converted versions that people are using for vasomotor rhinitis. From what I've read, they're just small electric machines that turn medications into aerosols. A good asthma/allergy specialist could probably find one for you. Or you could try to google it. I have been mixing my medications in an odd way.
I have been waking up with nausea in the morning and I am not pregent. I can not eat in the morning or think of food because it makes me want to vomit. I have had a cough, stuffy nose, and slight fever.I feel better later in the afternoon. I do not know if I have a flu, cold or something else. I have an appointment next week and I hope this stops before then. My husband worried and so am I. Does anyone have any advice for me.
