Coughing up foamy phlegm

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up foamy phlegm


Well, you don't have COPD. If you did you would be coughing up phlegm and your breathing would be compromised. It sounds like inflammation. Try taking schisandra chinesnis. It is an herb that is both anti-inflammatory and drying. There are no side effects. My daughter had a relatively similar problem and this herb helped enormously.
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!
I have had this coughing and spitting up foamy white bubbly stuff all my life, it really bugs my partner hearing me coughing spitting and being sick every morning and its starting to bug me big time now too, I start coughing first thing every morning, have to go and sick up all the phlegm, my face and eyes go all bloodshot and then I have to blow my nose and even more comes out, a whole half hour carry on every morning, cant have a coffee untill its all gone or else im sicking up coffee/phlegm,
Apparently fluid can seep from the back of the nose and go down the throat the brain reacts to stop the fluid going into the lungs which closes the voice box, this then stops you breathing, the brain then realises that the lungs arent working so wakes you up and that is why you wake up coughing and trying to get your breath, this is how it was explained to me. I have been told that it is not dangerous and that I will always wake up, it is just very stressfull.
I hate smelling food, it makes me nauseated, I am coughing up thick clear,foamy phlegm. There is a bark to the cough now it's so bad my rib-cage is sore. It goes away for a couple of weeks and comes back. I'm up to 12 weeks this time. I'm craving sugar too.
I start coughing and spitting up phlegm somewhere in the middle of the night. It only happens at night. there is also some wheezing. Duing the day I'm able to do most anything like golf or workout etc. My GP tried a few things, one was to take me off LOTRELL and that did help some. The coughing is not as severe as it was but still happens every night. He has tried other medicines and an antibiotic to no avail.
For the last 3 years I daily have phlem in my throat or the feeling that I do. I'm always hocking it up. It is sometimes clear and foamy or yellow and thick. There is no coughing involved. It is irritating to me and others. What could this be? and what is the cure? Thank you for your time.
which is really up and down along the sternum, it looks like. He is coughing up horribly thick foamy-looking phlegm and sometimes chokes where he starts coughing violently. He gets a deep pain in his upper left quadrant, behind his ribs. I'm worried that it's more esophageal and not just GERD symptoms.
I experience several bouts of heavy coughing that can last anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes while coughing up mostly clear phlegm with some of it a sea green color and at other times tinged pink - though this is rare. One out of ten coughing fits ends with me vomiting .... I guess it would be best described as a clear foamy form of phlegm. I do experience hot and cold flashes, sometimes it helps my breathing to step outside and sometimes it makes it worse.
3 nights ago I awoke in the middle of the night with shortness of breath, coughing, pain in my lungs and some white foamy phlegm. It lasted for about 4 hours. When I awoke in the morning it was gone though my lungs still felt stressed. Last night it happened again, not as bad as the first time but still very scary. There have been no unusual changes in my diets,habits or environment.I do not excersize regularly, I am 5ft 3inches and 124 pounds.I have been smoking regularly for 12 years.
I was diagnosed with CHF/Cardiomyopathy about 2 years ago. The symptoms I had were: A heaviness or pressure on my chest coughing (also a pink, foamy "phlegm") swelling in feet and legs being out of breath (all the time) dizziness nausea/vomiting exhaustion You should get checked out, just in case. When I had these symptoms, they didn't go away until I got on Lisinopril and a diuretic. Later, Coreg was added to my meds and I feel much better now.
finally got better after I got up coughing so hard I vomited-- thick, sticky, foamy phlegm and some undigested food.... was rotten night ( this was night before last)--- even hurt bad in my calves and feet... woke myself with moans and cries of agony a few times. Got so bad- hubby went to sleep in guest room. NEVER has this ever happened before. I slept only 4 hours this morning-- from 6 til 10... after having been up or about 20+ hours.
In the deep water (when my chest is in the h20), I always am coughing out a lot of foamy clear phlegm. The cardiologist said he thinks it means nothing, but no one else around me in the pool is ever coughing up nonstop phlegm. Why is that, please??? b. I sense that my heart and body feel much more 'stable' when I am in deep water, and I like to spend approx. 1 1/2 hrs. nearly every day doing gentle aerobics in a pool, with perhaps 1/2 the time submerged to my neck.
thick, foamy,sticky phlegm; night sweats; lung congestion; coughing; and fortunately have leaned to control the vomiting. Lately, with the help of a doctor, I have been focusing on the diagnosis of Candida. I am not much for using drugs to fight the problem, as the drugs in my opinion cause additional issues. I started using an herbal mixture especially meant for Candida with limited success.
I am now having a severe cough every night that goes on consistently hacking up white phlegm, sometimes foamy, which takes about 5 deep coughs to get a very small amount of phlegm up.. I was told by MANY Doctors and family members it is just the after effect of aspiration pneumonia and bronchitis. 75% of me believe that theory and the other 25% is continuing to question everything so here I am!
the color was yellow which I was told caused by a virus when I first got sick, but now its a foamy white phlegm. Sometimes in the morning when I first spit it up its yellow. Stomach pain has caused me to not be able to eat sometimes, and I barley ever am hungry. I think this is caused by anxiety because it goes away and comes back. I noticed my stomach is often bloated, and if I do eat something, I normally have to go to the washroom under and hour later. I have got a sore throat now.
It can be difficult to move this phlegm by swallowing, coughing, or throat clearing. Thinning this phlegm will help it to move easier. As long as you are not on a fluid restriction, drinking 6 to 8 8-ounce glasses, about 2.5 quarts, of non-caffeine fluid each day will keep this phlegm thin. It sounds like you already have a good water intake! Another option to discuss with your doctor is trying a medicine that thins phlegm such as guaifenesin.
March 2008, he began vomiting regularly. Mostly this does not consist of food—just foamy clear/white, thick phlegm (?). It seems to be “triggered” by eating, but when he gets going, it takes a very long time for him to stop again. He has made several visits to his regular physician, several visits to the emergency room. His surgeon dilated him 1.5 cm several weeks ago. He said he didn’t believe the small amount of narrowing that was present was the cause of his gagging/vomiting.
I don't want to be overly gross, but the phlegm is thick and especially hard to bring up in the mornings. It feels as if I have something in my throat, which must come up or out or something. At times it is hard & yellowish in color, but during the day mostly clear. A couple of days during the week I take an alergy pill for itching.(prescribed for me for hives, prior to therapy)???

I think you should go see a doctor. Coughing up blood sounds very scary to me. The only time I ever coughed up blood, I had pneumonia and I was also a heavy smoker. I wouldn't fool around with something like that. You could have some kind of virus or infection going on. Let us know what happens.
I go to the doctor next week for the blood work (beta), and hopefully I might be able to get an ultrasound done at the same time. Symptoms are showing up early with this pregnancy. I'm already looking pregnant from the bloating. And nausea is hitting me early too. We had a son 6 years ago. So this time around we're hoping it's a girl. It may be crazy, but we've already picked out a girl's name. Haven't come up with a boy's name yet.
