Common Questions and Answers about Coughing mucus lungs

coughing

Sometimes the pleura, the lining of the chest cavity and lungs can get inflamed causing pain with coughing. If the pain is aggravated with work or exercise then it could be due to cardiac pain. But when in doubt always best to have it checked. So please consult your primary care physician who may ask for an EKG or a treadmill test to rule out a cardiac cause for the pain. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Also when I breath out it feels like someone is pushing down very hard in my lungs. Usually when I breath in hard I cough up mucus. These feeling come and go every couple of minuets.

I cough to a point where I vomit a thick mucus......Seems I only vomit from my throat, if there is such a thing, as its not the same as when I'm sick...no burning in my throat. I have not had a cold, so don't think its post nasal drip........The cough seems to come outta nowhere and nothing brings it on. Not worse at nite or when laying down. I've had this cough for 6 months and have mentioned it to my dr. several times. I wanted to get tested for asthma, but he said my chest is clear...

Is it possible that asthma sytmptoms of coughing, and tighteness in chest and mucus can be caused by advanced invasion of roundworms in the lungs?

No problem there, I have had bronchitis several times. What concerns me is that a few days ago I was coughing up pink mucus. Then it turned into a peach color, now it is getting brighter with orange. Now, I did go to grade school so I am thinking yellow + red = orange. I asked the Dr. at the E.R. he didn't seem to have an answer for me and was not concerned about this. Why is my mucus a solid orange mass that I am coughing up? No, I have not eaten or drank anything that was orange or pink.
It has been for a while now every morning when I wake up I spit mucus with blood?
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 have a nebulizer and it helps a bunch with coughing up mucus, but too much makes me dizzy. I don't have health insurance, so I go to county hospital usually. But all they do is give me breathing treatments and a shot of prednisone and send me home. Now, I have a few prednisone pills left over from last time I was sick. Can taking these help? Some cold medicines that I've tried in the past (Nyquil, Sudifed, Robitussen, etc) seem to make my asthma worse.
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.
I had no realize how terrible lung problems were! Now I'm still sick and don't know how to make this mucus stop! I don't know how to stop this coughing! Tomorrow morning is my last dose of medicine and the 7 days are up. But I'm still SICK with all this coughing and mucus. Please help! What is wrong? Will this stop soon?
This thins mucus. If the mucus is from your lungs it will thin that too. B5 also reduces inflammation. Neither treatment will do any harm and they may help identify the problem. You might also want to take 500 mg of vitamin C to reduce inflammation.
what could be causing my 16 year old mixed breed female to suddenly start coughing almost non-stop and spit up clear mucus.
mucus in my throat (it might last many months) and combined with a coughing (it will last again 3 months?). How hard my life is? I hate Mucus and/or coughing. Could you give me some ideas or encouragement? Kind regards.
When I take Prednisone for exacerbated COPD, I have significantly increased production of mucus from all areas that show inflammation.....lungs, throat, nose, sinuses. The mucus thickens. The coughing and mucus production does not abate until the Prednisone is withdrawn. I have had this happen several times now. My Dr. does not believe this is caused by Prednisone even though withdrawing the Prednisone causes rapid resolution of the problem. Is anyone familiar with this problem?

And I'm starting to get sick again... should the doctor have re xrayed the lungs to make sure pneumonia had cleared up? what is the difference in the appearance of xrays between pneumonia and anything else, like cancer? I have been sick all winter long, and I just want to get better.
I have been to the doctor several times over coughing, taken bunches of medicine, when the medicine runs out I cough again. I have sinus drainage, allergies (for which I have had two years of shots), my nose isn't clogged and I do not have sinus headaches, occasional sinus pressure, nothing bad. The past several winters I get a "viral infection" and I cough, mostly at night, I get this a couple of times a year, late fall and mid spring.
My brother has an intense cough. He has had it for about 3 weeks and it is not getting any better. The doctor prescribed an inhaler and certain cough medicines but nothing is working. It has gotten to the point where by the end of one of my brother's coughing "attacks" he is in tears and feels as though he is going to be sick. It's the worst in the morning and at night. It is less painful when he is at school in class, but as soon as he goes outside for lunch it gets worse again.
I have to blow in his face before he will take a breath. My doctor has listened to his lungs and chest over and over agagin and they are clear. We have has x rays done and nothing has shown up. He sounds like a cat when he breathes. it rattles in his throat. It seems to me that he has flem or somthing stuck in his throat all the time. We have tried steroids and multiple medications and nothing has worked. he cant slppe through the night and he makes me feel so bad.
Coughing up blood is a sign of serious infection like TB, you need to call you doc immediately.
