For the last 4 years I have been <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> after every meal. It doesn't matter what I eat. and I often clear my throat throughout the day. I got my gallbladder out 2 yrs ago, no effect (not sure if there would be). I have had an an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>per endoscopy and a barium swallow which none showed any abnormalities. I have been taking Ranitidine (300mg) for over a year and now they added aciphex 20mg..... no relief. Symptoms are still there. What could be wrong?
For the past 4 years I have been <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> clear jelly like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> Balls. I have been a smoker for 8 years, and I have asthma. I wake an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> in the morning and in the middle of the night an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughingan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> a lot of the little mucus balls. It happens a little bit through out the day. Sometimes they are balls and sometimes they are like a hair, but made of mucus. I am very scared and do not have health insurance. I am 25, and thought I was pretty healthy. Please someone, HELP!
I have a nebulizer and it helps a bunch with <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>, but too much makes me dizzy. I don't have health insurance, so I go to county hospital usually. But all they do is give me breathing treatments and a shot of prednisone and send me home. Now, I have a few prednisone pills left over from last time I was sick. Can taking these help? Some cold medicines that I've tried in the past (Nyquil, Sudifed, Robitussen, etc) seem to make my asthma worse.
rushtyyyyy green and yellow flem should not be coming <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> from allergy unless it is stomach acid. Usually allergy is clear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>. I'm not a doctor but I wonder if it is a bacteria infection. Sorry I don't know the correct answer. Maybe the doctors are correct too. I just personally haven't heard of colored mucus from allergy. allergy can cause mucus that can lead to bacteria infection too. See another doctor.

dry irritating cough plus when im asleep my chest is that rattly it wakes me <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>..just stopped drinking coffee and use decaf t.bags..slight improvement just going through tests to see if its acid reflux causing the irritation..so really thinking about changing my diet ...had camera down nose and chest xray both were clear..driving me bonkers had it for over a year now..been prescribed with omeprazole and gaviscon ...lets see how it goes ..
Since we are talking about <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. I had a few questions of my own. I have had issues <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> for the past 4-5 years. I caught constantly. Sometimes it makes my headache worse but sometimes I don't have a headache so it doesn't bother me. I do have sinus disease as per my MRI. So that explains the post nasal drip. I always have problems an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughingan> whenever I am near or around water. For example I cough so much in the shower that sometimes it will make me throw an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> or gag.
When I get an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> in the mornings I always cough <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> a ball of hardened <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> that sometimes looks spaghetti-like. It's simply old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> that's been sitting in my throat all night that I cough an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> in the morning. Mucinex taken with a whole can style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> of water helps me clear the nasty balls of mucus right an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>. also, fatigue is a san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>er common symptom of Bronchitis. as for the fullness: with Bronchitis you get dried-an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> and dehydrated which, for me, can cause water retention (a.k.a., bloating).
Every year I've suffered from a serious bout of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughingan> which has lasted anywhere from a week to a few months. I keep <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> throughout the day. If I resist the, for example when I'm in class it gets worse and builds an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> until I can't hold it back any more. Lately it's come back again in full force, and I was wondering how I could make it stop. It's irritating, gross, annoying, embarrassing and painful.
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 <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <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.
No problem there, I have had bronchitis several times. What concerns me is that a few days ago I was <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> pink <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span>. 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughingan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>? No, I have not eaten or drank anything that was orange or pink.
Cough much better but still producing some thick clear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> every day or so. a week ago, I coughed <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> some bloody mucus for the first time. The first episode was a small amount of bright fresh blood with some phlegm and on two subsequent occasions,the same day, the blood was darker and more integral with the phlegm. They were very small amounts each time. Today, a week later, there was again some phlegm which seemed to come from deep down and it had brown mucus with it.
i have a cough which started out dry and my throat hurt and i got body aches and hot cold flashes but the body ache and flashes went away then i got a stuffy nose which turned into a runny nose and im blowing green mucus and then just 2 days ago i got a sty (well i think) on my bottom eye lid and i have yellowish green <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> coming out of both eyes and im <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>coughing</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>up</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> green <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> and my left side of my face hurts start at my temple but the sty is on my right eye
