Coughing mucus relief

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing mucus relief

coughing

For the last 4 years I have been coughing up mucus after every meal. It doesn't matter what I eat. And I often clear my throat throughout the day. I got my gallbladder out 2 yrs ago, no effect (not sure if there would be). I have had an upper endoscopy and a barium swallow which none showed any abnormalities. I have been taking Ranitidine (300mg) for over a year and now they added Aciphex 20mg..... no relief. Symptoms are still there. What could be wrong?
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.
Following a minor viral infection 10 weeks ago, with a slight cough, I began to suffer from excess mucus in the throat, causing constant throat clearing and, due to a feeling of something caught in my airways, coughing to the point where trying to shift the mucus became exhausting.Sometimes, I can remove a small amount of gluey mucus (clear to off-white in colour) which gives some temporary relief.
I have the symptoms of coughing until vomit and unbelievable amt of mucus, clear, sticky, thick .........endless tests and doctor/specialty, etc........nothing except strictures of the esophagus and wanting to stretch and wrap which I had been told does not end problems......I take Nexium and Ranadine, use Nasonex. The only stopping of the cough has been Ultram or tramadol........
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.
I have been given every kind of pill, inhaler and nose spray but nothing helps. I cough up mucusand sometimes throw up mucus. My throat hurts from coughing and sometimes my chest. I have had chest exrays and cat scans and cameras down my nose.
For the first week or so it was just a small cough, then it developed into coughing fits. For the past week the cough has led to nosebleeds, at least once a day, and vomiting, but only the once. The cough produces white-ish phlegm and a lot of spit. It is hard to breathe whilst getting rid of the spit. During the night I wake up once or twice to cough and this often leaves me dry heaving. I went to the doctors last week but they could not find a cause. What is causing this and what can help?
As long as you are not on a fluid restriction you should be drinking 6 to 8 8-ounce glasses of non-caffeine non-alcoholic fluid daily. Coughing can irritate your throat and make it sore. When you feel the mucus try to sip some water to clear the mucus. An antihistamine can dry up the postnasal drip. However, it may make the mucus thicker and more difficult to move.
I spend hours everyday over the sink coughing out volumes of white sticky mucus. I sometimes choke on food from the amount of mucus that collects in my vocal cords and am unable to breathe well. Asthma & sinusitis seem the most normal explanation, however, the dr's say the don't find anything that should cause that much mucus. The only time it ever has stopped for a short while is when I was put on prednisone.
I am 26 years old and for the last couple of days I have not been able to keep much down. I have a terrible cough and my throat hurts really bad. I throw up cobs of mucus and then whatever I have eaten that moment. It has been really hard for me to breath when I work out or even just sitting around at times. The week before all of this started happening, my sinuses drained very bad. My head, nose and chest was very congested and I had a slight fever.
For two years now I have been suffering with excess mucus , it's a problem in the morning as soon as I get out of bed, if I get out of bed before the morning or the bathroom I have to spend a half hour coughing and spitting up mucus, I can't have ice cream, dairy as that will make me have mucus is all day long.
but i have been coughing up brown mucus everyday for the past 4 months. i have no idea what this is.
For 4 months I have been constantly coughing, gagging, choking, spitting up mucus and throwing up. I have been to 3 different doctors and each time they have treated me with allergy meds., cortizone shots, and diffent antibiotics to no avail.. I had a CAT scan of my sinus 2 weeks ago and the sinus is clear. They now have me scheduled for allergy testing coming in a week. I am into my 9th day of a 10 day antibiotic for the 4 time.
I also had the problem of mucus after eating and have found that it is because of a food-allergie.( eggs, diary and so on ). When I avoid alletrgic foods I have no mucus problem. When I have an attac ( musus and coughing that could last for hours ) I take half a teaspoon of Baking Soda in a glas of water and have immediate relief.
I have been coughing up mucus for almost a year. i am 18 years old and in good health. i don't think it's my diet because i have changed it numerous times since the coughing. and i don't think its the enviroment around me because i have also moved 3 times since the problems have occured. from the moment i wake up till i go to bed i am constantly coughing up mucus, it is so imbrassing. i don't have to eat anything either to start these confulsions. i am really worried.
I cannot explain what I feel to the ENT doctors but it feels like I have something starting behind my left sinus and it goes down my throat and I am constantly hacking to clear my throat. A few months ago, I started hacking up a jelly type mucus, mostly clear. Have had scopes done and they don't seem to be able to figure this out. Went to a pulmonary doctor who just prescribed an inhaler. Tried that and cannot use it as it aggravates the dry mouth and throat.
I am a 16 y/o female. For the past two weeks, I have had unexplained coughing fits several times a day. Usually there is some mucus but not always. I also have to blow my nose every morning. Today I went in for a physical and my lungs sounded fine. I did not being up my symptoms. Any idea what this could be?
I've been coughing up the same hard, yellow, reddish mucus for months and months. It became a lot more frequent lately and it seemed as if I had a sinus infection. I went to an ENT and he took a culture of "puss" coming from the top of my nasal cavity. The doctor called an told me that it was Staph and it should be curred with antibiotics. After reading several things on Staph, I believe I will go buy the topical ointment as well. Hopefully it will clear it up.
p.s.
I was fighting a bad cold all week, developed a bad cough over the past 3 days. Thought it was the cold. But now that all cold symptoms are gone, no mucus, etc., I'm thinking it's reflux again. I've eaten some classic triggers--tomato sauce, garlic, chocolate, etc. The cough is absolutely dry and uncontrollable when I lie down. I never really had a cough when my reflux was bad in the past, I would get the wheezing and throat tightening. Does this mean it's worse?
When I see something funny on TV and have to laugh out loud it is always followed by a coughing fit that doesn't stop and exhausts me. It also gives me a headache and brings up mucus. What can I do about it I am 66 years old.I never smoked and have no ashma. Could it be an allergy?

I had my tonsils out 14 years ago due to the fact that I would wake up in the middle of the night and feel like my throat was closing up, gasping for air, and coughing. I then got braces and a retainer in my mouth to move my teeth and jaw around. They pretty much said there wasn't a lot of space in my mouth for my tongue and that's why these choking/gasping/coughing attacks were happening. I hadn't had any coughing/choking fits until yesterday.
a thick coating in the back of my throat, constantly spitting up mucus, acid reflux and sleep apnea. have not had surgery or cut out milk and will never cut out my beer. let me know if you find a cure.

I have something similar. Right now I have a respiratory type cold w/ coughing and after a while of coughing, my whole back will itch. Also, this happens pretty much every time I'm sick with this type of cold. I wonder if it has something to do w/ oxygen levels??
My son is 13 years old and is coughing every 15-30 seconds a loud violent cough. He has had this cough now for four weeks. It occurred back at the end of September for close to three weeks and was treated with his asthma medications (prednisone, Albuterol Inhaler, Flovent, Zyrtrec) and it finally went away. It came back almost four weeks ago but much worse than before. I am not exaggerating when I say he is coughing every 15-30 seconds, he is.
This inflammation can block sinus drainage and cause increased mucus production. The mucus can drain from the nose and sinuses down the back of the throat causing a constant or intermittent postnasal drip and sore throat. A sinus CT scan, like you have had done, is the best way to identify a sinus infection. As you know a sinus CT scan will also identify if any of the openings that drain your sinuses are blocked.
Thanks -- I was propping for a week, and did notice some relief. However, I was doing this with a pile of pillows and it wasn't very comfortable. Any products you'd recommend? I share a bed with my husband, so I think a wedge would be the most practical. Also, are you no longer coughing?
