Coughing up hard white chunks

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up hard white chunks


on a morning when i wake up i always need to cough and clear my throat since about a year ago. but now it has extended to needing to do it throughout the day. sometime the mucus that comes up is small hard sticky lumps that nearly make me be sick as they get stuck in my throat. or some times theres a lot of yellow and white flem. its never clear. I'm wondering wat the cause of this is as i can constantly feel it there at back of my throat like a coating.
For a really long time now (months) I have been randomly coughing up hard chunks of what looks like mucus. The back of my throat will start itching and if I try and scratch it I end up scratching off more of the hard mucus. I also couch it up sometimes. It is coming from the part of my throat that is bubbly on both sides, I think they might be my glads, I have tried to identify them using a diagram but Im not sure what they are. Is this something I need to be very concerned about?
The other week I was eating some cake and somehow some of it went up my nose. I eventually got it down after snorting and blowing my nose. I didnt think too much of it until this week when the same thing happened again except I couldnt get the food down. The problem is now whenever I eat all my food keeps getting caught in my nasal cavity. My left nostril feels rather weird where it joins the bak of my throught, it feels like there is some sort of gap which wont close.
A lot of mucus has been present, but in my nose, it has been hard to get out, as of lately. And when I do try to blow my nose to get it out, it feels like the strong air is causing irritating pain throughout the passageways. When the mucus does come out of my nose, it comes out in heaping globs of thick/gluelike/sticky/stretchable clear or cloudy whiteness.
When i went to the doctor i was already sick for 2 months, they put me on a nebulizer and gave me an x-ray on my lungs, they said i either have pnemonea or bronchitis, it doesn't really hurt at all until night time, and i kinda throw up alot, well like once or twice a week, but i recall the last time i threw up, i coughed during and big white chunks came out, it seemed like puss or hard mucus, and they where clogging my throw up from coming out, soi was like choking, i don't know what to think
Not only the bad breath and taste, but it causes alot of histemic reaction in the form of increased mucous and coughing. When I am able to cough them up, my symptoms subside. I believe they are a symptom of a fungal infection but so far cannot find a doctor who is willing to look into it.
In July of 2004 I got my tonsils removed after seeing an ear nose ant throat specialist. You see, I was coughing up those white, stinky balls about three times a week. They would get stuck in the back of my throat, and made my breath smell so bad. I told my dentist about it while I was getting my routine cleaning, and she referred me to the ear nose and throat speacialist. He told me that since I was coughing them up so much, it was time to get my tonsils removed.

Murray Grossan, who invented the Grossan Irrigation Machine, and he removed her cyst and the smell went away. 4. One man did a sinus flush, and some white tofu-like chunks came out. The smell actually got worse for a while, then went back to normal. 5. Many people, particularly the ones who have a strong odor that other people are revolted by, had no change at all after doing a Sinus Flush. 6.
And on the weekends i smoke even more. I have been spitting up pieces of sometimes, white chunks, othertimes huge mucus "loogeys" thats are very dark yellow, almost orange or even rusty coloured. I have probably been spitting like this for about a year, more or less. Im underage and the fact that my mucus is already this bad, scares me since, i dont know what it really means. Does all that mucus/pieces, get expelled from my lungs? ive been smoking for almost 4 years.
I am always coughing and clearing my throat at meetings like an old man. Worse in a.m. when I wake up or out in cold walking the dogs. Or.... talking on the telephone or in a meeting. Always have a "frog" in my throat. Doc originally said it could be asthma, allergies, or acid reflux. Lung x-ray was okay. Tested negatively for asthma & allergies. Taking Zantac 75 but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
Tuesday morning around 3am she started coughing and woke up, I layed her back down and she ended up throwing up. We clean everything up and lay her down and 30 minutes later she does it again without coughing. We clean up again and 10 minutes later she starts whining and throws up again, by this time she doesn't have anything else to throw up. Yoou could tell the day before she wasn't feeling herself because she didn't eat like she normally does.
I get mall particles of food that gets stuck in the back of my throat somewhere around the nasal passage area. These are small particle of hard food like a part of a peanut shards after being chewed up.. or really small pills like 10mg lipitor (I don't know how many of the liptors have literally dissolved back there instead of my stomach) Almost every night I have something stuck there it causes my sinus to swell in the during sleep and can sometimes get painful if it does not get dislodge.
whenever I enter a room with people or even pass by someone I cringe wondering if they'll flare up by sneezing or coughing multiple times, watery eyes, hiccupping, and scratching their nose. I have no other choice but to live with it and try to experiment on myself at the same time. I've learned a lot. I have become a very intelligent guy because of this. I've read probably hundreds of pages of myths, folklore, folktales, religious texts, medical journals from all over the world.

ever since i was a kid, when i get tired, (without any bodily exercise), only one leg ACHES. as a kid it would happen when i was very very tired, not due to running around or anything, but just due to not having enough sleep. it was a very intense and deep pain, like it was inside my bone. it was from the front of my ankle up to below my knee. and feels like a "heavy" pain, almost like there's too much fluid in there.

I too used a drug called ThreeLac for treating Candida. There was less problems when I was using it, but the strange symptoms reappeared when i stopped. I cannot afford to buy that drug from US as I have to pay the customs duty everytime here.I am not 100% sure that is worked but it helped upto some certain point. One more thing I observed.
out but the other one I can only breath in not out. My doctor said I could blow my nose just not hard. So their is the problem I cant clear out my left nostril except for sniffing and I am getting a lot of sinus pressure (is that normal and will it go away) which makes sleeping very hard. I can handle a stuffy nose as long as there is no sinus pressure and I don’t want to take pseudo ephedrine at night cause it will keep me up. Any suggestions on my situation would be appreciated.
Originally i thought it was from the cat that i got but my inhaler does not fix this issue the only thing that helps me breath easier is coughing up whatever is in the back of my throat and it looks white and slimey so im thinking it is the stomach acid.
While in college and after it would not be uncommon for her to have anywhere between 5-12 drinks a night. Lately she can't drink even a single drink (beer, wine, hard alcohol) without throwing up almost immediately after. Once she throws up she usually feels almost completely better. She eats TONS of bread and other gluten products so i ruled that out - she hasnt taken any new meds, changed her diet or anything like that.
I had the same problem for like 4 years and it has just recently cleared up in a week. i had constant white coting on my tongue, would brush/scrape 3 times a day. i could not talk to people up close. I mean my breath was terrible, people would hold thier nose, cough and turn away. one of my nostrtils would block every now and then. The smell go so bad that i had to stop going out on social occasions.
The stress from my job is killing me, but I can't quit smoking no matter how hard I try.... I've been smoking since I was twelve, smoking regularly throughout high school, smoking even more college and law school; and kept on smoking during my two years working as a law clerk for the county courthouse, almost two packs a day for the past ten years --- and I just dont know how to quit.
The pain that I have is generally on the right side and seems to radiate out towards my lower back and is also present in the area of my right kidney. An ultrasound of my kidneys showed up normal. I have not had any other symptoms until the other day when I noticed trace amounts of blood in my stool. At times this pain is pretty intense, and yet the doctor can not seem to pinpoint a problem.
I was so backed up and tmi I know but was hard to go still. I took softener everyday but it didn't help. Prunes helped though and I love them so thats good. You are going to need someones help for the first couple days to sit up, get up, sit down or lay down lol so a walkie talkie would help" I NEED TO PEE COME HELP ME TO THE TOILET PLEASE!" Oh man sitting on the toilet was the WORST!
I've had swelling in my throat at the top soft area up behind my hard pallette. I get dizzy, tired, nausiated, and it gets worse when I eat products with soy, including soybean oil and lethicin, which is not even considered an "allergy" because an allergy can only be to a "protein" not to an oil. When I take Ibuprophen or other anti-inflamatories like salmon oil capsules I felt a lot better for 5 hours.
i feel for all of you deeply (several times my ears have swollen shut and lymph nodes been blocked up into hard rocks for weeks non stop - i understand:)). tea tree oil (not staight oil in the ear though dilute first!!!), paud'arco, garlic, olive leaf extract (seagate is a good company), olive oil, gse, PROBIOTICS, digestive enzymes, wild oregano oil, NO REFINED SUGAR, chlorophyll, and no antibiotics are a start. however, i understand the bind.
