i have no pain, no trouble breathing, no nasal discharge. when the cough begins i can feel and hear the phlegm
ball. when i finally get the phlegm up
it is cloudy, sometimes clear and sometimes a dark gray with a black dot. its almost hard, round. some are sesame seed size others are peanut size. each spasm comes with at least 10-15 phlegm balls.
after the spasm i am fine. these episodes occur once in the morning, then around 4:00, and again before i go to bed.
