Coughing up green mucus symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up green mucus symptoms


Avatar m tn Make an appointment to see your doctor to check your throat and ears and lungs. If the doctor is of the opinion that this is a bacterial infection, he will prescribe you with an antibiotic. At home do steam inhalations. Boil up a kettleful of water (taking care not to get scalded). Pour this into a bowl and put in some Vick, Olbas oil or any other decongesting oil you like. Bend your head over the bowl and cover your head and the bowl with a towel.
Avatar f tn Hi there my doctor prescribed me an antibiotic pregnancy safe to take cause I was sick last weekend. I am now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> really bad have diarrhea like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> and when I cough and blow my nose green like mucus is coming from my nose. I blow my nose so much at one time just to clear it out to find that it's clogged again with the same green mucus in jess then 5 minutes. When I cough it hurts my chest.
Avatar m tn i started getting a sore throat and then stuffy nose, cough you know the drill, then about week after that i got diarrhoea which lasted for 4 days. After that i started getting joint pain and consist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>. Ive also had slightly swollen lymph nodes but non tender and i dont know if it was just anxiety driven. Also been itchy all over but also unknown if anxiety driven. I told my partnee to get tested and he said he came back negative, i didnt get tested.
Avatar n tn I might not cough all day, then it hits me. I do feel like I have some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> I want to cough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span>. At times, a cold or warm drink seems to bring it on or just walking into air conditioning. My right nostril seems clear, a little congestion in the left. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn I was smoking it regularly, sometimes very heavily for about 7 months. Last week I started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>green</span> thick <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, 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.
Avatar n tn Hi, I used to have the problem of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> and lot's of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> after eating. If I laid down right afterward, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> would come <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> 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.
Avatar n tn go to nature sunshine on the net and look up colloidal silver order this and take this for pneumonia as you would antibiotic (a teaspoon in a very small amount of juice 1/2 ounce) every eight hours for three to seven days until the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> that you cough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> is clear (not yellow,green or brown) when the mucus clears this lets you know that the infection is gone. Stop taking the colloidal silver even though the cough may still be there and you may be coughing up clear mucus.
Avatar f tn When the nose is too dry, it doesn't humidify the air sufficiently, then as it moves along it drys and thickens mucus further down. Eating stimulates saliva flow which starts to loosen the thick <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> and you end <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> with a cough. In my own case it's often a deep choking cough. It can help to drink some water about 15min or so before eating. Flushing the nose with saline solution beforehand can help as well.
Avatar n tn And the next day, I started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> small amounts of blood, sometimes combined with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, sometimes just blood clots, the blood seemed dark, not pink, and I didn't cough blood all the time, I would cough some blood, then it stopped, and maybe much later that day, or the next day, some more blood..
Avatar n tn I've Bern <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> clear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>green</span> specks. There's a head and chest thing going around my home. Gives body aches chills and make me very tired. Pain in my left lung area under my left breast and under my arm pit to the side of my left breast.
Avatar n tn I've been suffering for about a week but several months ago it was for almost an entire month Wake <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> inthe morning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> yellow / <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>green</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> 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.
Avatar n tn I've been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> the same hard, yellow, reddish <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> 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.
Avatar f tn I realize <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> yellowish-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>green</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>green</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> 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...
Avatar n tn I have been having the same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> since mid-February (2005). The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> that I cough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> is clear and sticky/thick. It is so disgusting. I have been to the dr. and only get prescribed allergy meds. Nothing works, no kind of cough med or allery med or anything at all. I have coughed so hard at times that I am unable to stand while doing so. I have felt such pain that I feared that I broke a rib...That made for a pointless dr. visit--I got x-rays and no one EVER called me back with results.
Avatar m tn I live in the south and at this month of March our pollen count is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> around is considered high at 95, needless to say it is a allergy nightmare here and it usually keeps on throughout the year. I have read similar forums about these symptoms.Everyone seems to discuss their doctors and medicines, but I would like to know where they live. Do you consider that. Do people in the desert have these problems?
Avatar n tn I followed his advice and its been about a week and i am worse then i was and still <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> 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.
Avatar m tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> clear phlyem at night inthe morning throughout the day is my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span>. It started about four weeks ago and there was green phlyem but has now beem replaced with clear. Anybody got any hints of what I have?
Avatar m tn I know it's not bacterial because I'm not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> a lot d <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>green</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> 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.
Avatar n tn I tried to ignore it until the day I passed out from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span>. Shortly after I threw <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> while <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> and aspirated it back in a failed attempt to catch a breath. Off to the doctor I went and he knew immediately that I had Pertussis (or whooping cough). He explained that you usually get it after another illness and their is NO TREATMENT. Again, no treatment. Cough medicines with suppressants-expectorants-codeine do nothing and may even make the cough worse.
Avatar n tn It could be from your throat, your sinuses, your larynx or down in your lungs. The yellow <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> suggests an infection. Given the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> in your nose, throat and ears, the most likely site is your sinuses. That could also be the reason for the headache you had. You may or may not need an antibiotic for the presumed infection, but only if it is bacterial. You should have a good exam of your ears, nose and throat.
Avatar m tn My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> have started to abate; it's been two weeks, and I'm still a little stuffed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span>, but the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> 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.
Avatar n tn All day I am having to clear my nose and throat I am also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> that has collected in my chest. I am assuming it is an allergic reaction to all foods eaten but it is very worrisome. I have had food allergy tests done but nothing show up. Any ideas would be welcome. Thank you.
Avatar n tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> and that is why you wake <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>up</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> 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.
