Coughing up green mucus and blood

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up green mucus and blood

coughing

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.
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.
I cannot name all of the anti-biotics and steroids and anti-histamines and inhalers etc. and blood tests that I have been through. Nothing has been found. The doctors get excited when I walk in because they want to be the one to cure it. Here we go again. They start me out the same way all the other doctors start me out. Antihistamines, Steroids, they make me feel that I should have responded to their treatments and because I haven't It must be in my head.
i can taste infection when i swallow and i keep coughing up mucus that has blood in it, what does blood in my mucus mean?
I have had the same problem with mucus and coughing after eating, and the problem is always solved when I take DI-AID (by Solgar, but there are a number of companies that make it). Apparently, a lack of digestive enzymes is the main cause of my problem, and after many years and many clueless doctors, a nutritional therapist in London very confidently directed me down the right path.
I thought nothing of it until last night when I had a coughing fit and coughed up what appeared (and tasted like) blood. It wasn't dark red but a light redish pink. Has this ever happened to anyone else? It has me kind of worried.
I am no doctor but I went through a similar situation...I had yellow and green Mucus and a bit of blood. I was told that when the mucus is yellow or green it usually indicates a viral infection. That could be the cause of most of your symptoms...have you gone to the doctor to get a Culture test of your throat?
over the past few weeks I've been coughing up a lot of phlegm which is multi-coloured (clear, yellow, orange and green) and I went to see my doctor who diagnosed me with bronchitis, and prescribed me anti-biotics, which it turns out I'm allergic to, so I've stopped them. the phlegm occasionally contains streaks of blood through it, varying in quantity from the tiniest speck to quite thick streaks. I'm an 18 year old smoker by the way.

After this last bout I was given antibiotics which have gotten rid of the yellow junk problem, but this morning when I had my usual cough, blood came up, bright red and fresh. I am concerned I may have some sort of nasal cancer as I am a recently quit (social) smoker of 20yrs. Is this something to worry about? I have also had a condition for 9 weeks called Labyrithitis which affects the inner ear causing dizziness, vertigo, hot flushes, fatigue and anxiety.
I followed his advice and its been about a week and i am worse then i was and still coughing up blood. My chest pain is now constant and i get short of breath easily. My heart feels like its going to pump out of my chest. So i am just wondering what else could be going on or if this could just be really bad bronchitis any suggesions would be great thankyou.
I've been suffering for about a week but several months ago it was for almost an entire month Wake up inthe morning coughing up yellow / green mucus and then it goes clear but it's constant and so sticky - it won't even easily wash off the sides of the basin. Last time I used to wake up inthe middle of the night choking - really horrid problem and the lack f sleep only makes things worse.

I realize coughing up yellowish-green or green mucus is normal when you have bronchitis, but what about bright, lemon yellow colored mucus? What is it? What caused it? How do I get rid of it? Should I be worried? (Have had typical bronchitis symptoms for aprox. 3 weeks...cough, chest congestion, runny/congested nose, lots of phlem, lose of voice, raspy voice, deep chest cough, fever (first week), trouble sleeping because it feels like someone is sitting on my chest when I lay down...
It is very high in spices like pepprika, oregano, basil, mint, and curry. I can have canola oil and rice vinegar. Anyway I gave up all salicylates and 2 days later all my symptoms got better. You should check out the site www.salicylatesensitivity.com and check out the book, "Salicylate Intolerance and The Healthier I Ate the Sicker I Got" for a complete list of foods to avoid and symptoms.
I know it's not bacterial because I'm not coughing up a lot d green mucus or have that drowning feeling in my lungs. I think it's just my Annual Bronchitis kicking in it has always started during late fall early winter. But I am going to be setting a doctor appointment so I can get more of those Tessalon pearls.
My son dylan seems to now be so used to coughing that he can sleep through, me and my hubby however cannot and take turns sleeping downstairs in order to get some rest. he does not cough in the day. I tried elevating his bed.. it did not work. i have searched the internet and found nothing like this.. is it possible that his lungs could be full of mucus and he just cannot get it out? he has been on 4 rounds of antibiotics bit nothing has shifted it..
i have recently developed a sore throat and began hacking up really thick green mucus with blood in it. The blood has lessened since the beginning of the illness. Now i just started coughing last night and i cough up really green thick mucus and my lungs have a very slight constant burn to them maybe because of the violent nature of my cough. and when i inhale deep i cough involuntarily. does anyone know what i have? if you dont know does it sound serious?
I had a severe cold recently and while my cold is getting better, my cough is getting worse. I cough up a thick clear phlegm, and sometimes the coughing causes me to vomit just as you described. I have started spitting it out so that I don't swallow it back, but I still end up vomitting after awhile. I don't know exactly whats wrong, but I'm really not enjoying this even after a few days. (So your comment about 10 months scares me quite a bit.
My symptoms have started to abate; it's been two weeks, and I'm still a little stuffed up, but the mucus has reduced in volume significantly, and is no longer yellow and is either clear or a creamy greenish color. The dental pain is also no more, and seems to be mostly related to the previous sinus inflammation as far as I can tell. However, something happened recently that's made me a little worried, simply because it was strange.
My son is 35 and last year he was coughing up green mucous with blood in it. He was diagnosed with pneumonia. I would definitely call a Dr. or go to an urgent care or the emergency room. Some pneumonias are viral and some are bacterial and some can be contagious. Do any of your friends or family have the same problem as you? They can culture your sputum and tell if it is viral or bacterial- you need to know before you take any medicine because antibiotics only work on bacteria, not viruses.
I hacked up the black mucus, then hacked up clear/yellow/green mucus later in the day. I just saw the black mucus again and I worry that I have lung problems. I don't continuously cough up black/grey phlem, only twice, hacking up other colors of mucus in between. Is it true that this black/gray mucus is a sign of lung cancer? I've been smoking for less than 2 years and not everyday. I know tons of people who smoke a lot more cigarettes than I do and they seem fine.
They say she has sarcoi (excuse my spelling) but the medications they gave her actually just seem to make her worse, they had put her on this certain medication and it ended up makin her blood pressure go up, and she started to have blurry vision and see light streaks, and she was disoriented she went to the hospital her bp was 205 over 105 , she was pretty much on her way to having a heart attack.
I have not had fever or flu like symptoms but I have a lot of green mucus that I have been coughing up for over a week and this morning there was a lot of blood when I blew my nose. My ears also squeak when I blow my nose. I am taking Mucus Relief DM and it seems to help but in the mornings is the worse.
I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.

I have never smoked and don't drink any coffee. I also found that coughing up the mucus only WORSENS the problem. So I have been trying to remain calm and not cough it up. I also saw my doctor who prescribed a nasal spray for possible post nasal drip. I don't think that helped. I had also started using Neti Pot for clearing my sinuses. And also started drinking Apple Cidar Vinegar. This all has helped a bit with the mucus problem. I don't think it is acid refux as I never have heartburn.
This inflammation can block sinus drainage and cause increased mucus production that may contain small amounts of blood. 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. The best way to identify a sinus infection is with a sinus CT scan, although sinus x-rays are a decent alternative. A sinus CT scan will also identify if any of the openings that drain your sinuses are blocked.
Yesterday afternoon, a large amount of discolored mucus was draining down my throat, which I was able to cough out. It had some blood in it. Later at night, I lightly coughed some blood up (half clear/ half blood). Since then, no blood. The Dr said my lungs sounded clear. Do I need to worry? I have nosebleeds almost eveytime I blow my nose, and I've been running a humidifier and using saline nose spray.
