Common Questions and Answers about Coughing phlegm shortness breath

coughing

It takes a lot of coughing but usually I can get some phlegm to dislodge. My concern is that I don't seem to have any concerns with shortness of breath. When I go to the doctors my oxygen is always in the 98% range. Yet I always seem to have a crud in the middle of my chest... and worsens, say maybe 1-2 times per year. I have tried to take up running. The most is 3 miles.. so nothing big.
I have constant shortness of breath at rest. I do go through some periods it is not quite so bad. I have phlegm, some days worse then others. I have a lot of headaches. I feel I have spasms in my throat due to the phlegm. I have had a lot of gastric isues and high tryglycerides. I was wondering if somehow these things could all be connected. Before this started I was living a normal life. I now walk on eggshells on how I will feel daily. This is a terrible way to live.

I can't laugh without having a coughing fit and can't remember that being different. I have constant aches and pains in my chest and shortness of breath. For about the last month whenever phlegm comes up there is blood in it. It ranges from quite a bit to just streaks. I know this sounds silly but i have a phobia of going to the doctors. I've convinced myself if i go she's just going to tell me i have lung cancer and i would rather not know that!!

I haven't really had to cough, but I have had to clear my throat sometimes. It also feels like I have to...it's not coughing it up, but get up somehow phlegm. I don't know how to describe how that happens lol. Tonight, I noticed that there are little blood flecks in it. I doubt that it's anything too terribly serious, as it's not a lot [at least, as of now], but I'm wondering if it's something to be concerned about and monitor?
It is so severe that it leads to vomiting and panic level shortness of breath. It is prohibiting any restful sleep and keeps her awake for hours afterword causing fatigue throught the day. There is some phlegm with the cough. She is 42, a smoker, is allergic to cats and dogs although we have had a 4 lb yorkie for 4.5 years with only mild and occasional reaction in my wife. We recently (6 months) ago added a Parrot to the household.
Today I've started coughing big yellow lumps of phlegm. I have shortness of breath, stabbing in the centre left of my chest (breast level) and dull aching, throbbing acute pain in the lower rib area on my back, worsening when I breath in. I've been taking ibuprofen to ease the pain which helps but the minute I stop the pills, the pain comes back really bad, it makes me catch my breath. I also feel consistently light headed and keep getting indigestion too. Then pass out tired all the time.
I tried running one lap of the track and shortly there after I started coughing. Throughout that night and that next day I was coughing up yellow phlegm. I'm not sure what this means, but I really don't want to go to the doctors and waste my money. They'll just give me some nose spray, inhalers and send me on my way. If anyone can help please feel free to email me at tes_scott***@**** Thank you. Good Luck Everyone!

Every single day, from when I wake up to the time I go to bed (if I can get sleep), I am constantly coughing or clearing my throat. The phlegm is usually white, sometimes with a bit of yellow. It is almost always extremely thick and a large amount. Sometimes in the afternoon or night, the phlegm is stringy and chokes me. There are some days that I cough up phlegm about every 5 minutes.

Rukkus, I have also been experiencing the shortness of breath and went to the hospital and had the same tests run, everything came back normal. To this day even after being on the Klonopins that I was prescribed, I still am constantly yawning to get a deep breath. It feels as though my heart is tired from being over worked and I am constantly getting headaches. I don't have a cough at all, but I feel for you with everything else that is going on. I just want to feel normal again.
Coughing up almost any color of phlegm goes hand in hand with asthma...especially the clear. It's possible that your snoring has a lot to do with shortness of breath in the morning...it's also something that smokers go through too. Not sure if you smoke, or if you ever have...just saying that they go through that. Perhaps you have a touch of PND as well? Post nasal drip. Maybe something in your bedroom is setting off asthma attacks? Room deodorizer? Cat?

I though it was just a cold virus, I thought I would be bound to catch a bug at some point after getting shortness of breath. But I am beginning to wonder if it is a virus. as apart from the violent coughing I have not temperature, know phlegm or runny nose. and I feel perfectly healthy apart from the cough.
I went to the dr because I was coughing and had shortness of breath; diagnosis pneumonia. X-ray showed mass on lung in addition to pneumonia. Everything after that happened very fast --- scans, surgeon, biopsy, oncologist, chemo --- about 3 weeks. You might get lucky, but if you've ever smoked, I'd bet on lung cancer. I quit smoking years ago. Were it not for the pneumonia, the cancer would still be growing and killing me. Now at least I have a reasonable chance.

Bronchitis may be indicated by a productive cough (produces phlegm), shortness of breath (dyspnea) and wheezing. Occasionally chest pains, fever, and fatigue or malaise may also occur. Mucus is often green or yellowish green and also may be orange or pink, depending on the pathogen causing the inflammation. Chronic bronchitis is caused most often by exposure to airborne pollutants such as cigarette smoke, excessive dust in the air, or chemicals.
for the past 5 days I have had shortness of breath- I feel like I kind of drowning or suffocating, like I cant get enough air. I went to the ER last night and after a blood test to check for clotting and a chest xray they couldn't find anything.

The common causes of blood in cough are bronchitis, irritation of the throat from violent coughing, blood clot in lungs, tuberculosis of lungs, vasculitis etc.Though you do not have any symptoms like coughing or shortness of breath you should see your doctor and get evaluated. A clinical examination and tests like sputum culture and smear, blood counts may be necessary. Further tests will depend on the test results. Treatment will be specific based on the cause. I hope it helps.

Add me in there to with restrictive gasp of oxygen about every 15 to 30 minutes, plus I get slight cold sweats with moderate exercise and the shortness of breath along with the coughing up the annoying lung mucus and the last thing on my complaint list is the tiredness with moderate exercise, did I mention the excessive sweating that goes with the moderate excursion, just about forgot the shortness of sleep most nights (5 to 6 hours max).
