You may be suffering from acid reflux. Stomach acid can irritate your throat resulting in lots of mucus. In my case, the acid is even making its way into my windpipe, making my voice hoarse and causing asthma-like attacks. Have you seen an ENT or GI specialist?
Since then my symptoms got a little better, and currently just have bumps on inside of mouth sore throat (soft palate sore), and a white tongue (whcih my doctor said was nothing bus prescribed me some antifungal thing just incase), ive also been consistently spitting up mucus, varying colours from white to yellow to green. And also had white foamy spit. Does this sound like HIV symptoms?
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.
Hi Nafee, Just read your post. What does not being fat have to do with coughing up white sticky mucus. I would make an appointment to see your family doctor, tell your doctor about this and see what he or she thinks the white mucus might be. Good luck.
Hi, an important aspect about pertussis or whooping cough is vaccination. The best way to prevent pertussis is to get vaccinated. There are vaccines for infants, children, preteens, teens and adults. Researchers agree that refusal to vaccinate children against whooping cough might have played a role in the 2010 pertussis outbreak in California. The whooping cough vaccination is now recommended for all pregnant women between 28 and 38 weeks pregnant. Regards.
I frequently cough up "pure white sticky mucus. This is a relatively new thing and it has become a concern as prior to coughing it up I always get a perfume or soapy taste in the back of my throat. (Please do not insult my intelligence by asking if I had applied perfume or got soap in my mouth) I have for a very long time coughed up a nasty colored mucus due to being a smoker, so this is a real shock to me. Do you have any suggestions with credible origins that might explain this?
Following a minor viral infection 10 weeks ago, with a slight cough, I began to suffer from excess mucus in the throat, causing constant throat clearing and, due to a feeling of something caught in my airways, coughing to the point where trying to shift the mucus became exhausting.Sometimes, I can remove a small amount of gluey mucus (clear to off-white in colour) which gives some temporary relief.
i used have attacks of coughing with vomit containg mucus only. Mucus is A fluid like as if my pharynx is eroded. Sometimes with mucus food also present in vomit. I have no throat infection diagnosed with ENT specialist. Docter has diagnosed me with allergic pharangitis. I have high eosinophill count. I am 60 years old. sufferening from this problem from last 6 month. I can not understand what is the cause of allergy.
I have been to the doctor several times over coughing, taken bunches of medicine, when the medicine runs out I cough again. I have sinus drainage, allergies (for which I have had two years of shots), my nose isn't clogged and I do not have sinus headaches, occasional sinus pressure, nothing bad. The past several winters I get a "viral infection" and I cough, mostly at night, I get this a couple of times a year, late fall and mid spring.
My dog has a cough and alot of white mucus is now coming up he is eating fine and staying hydrated, I am just looking for some over the counter meds to help him feel better till I can get him to the vet.
For the first week or so it was just a small cough, then it developed into coughing fits. For the past week the cough has led to nosebleeds, at least once a day, and vomiting, but only the once. The cough produces white-ish phlegm and a lot of spit. It is hard to breathe whilst getting rid of the spit. During the night I wake up once or twice to cough and this often leaves me dry heaving. I went to the doctors last week but they could not find a cause. What is causing this and what can help?
It seems to come in waves of coughing spells and then no coughs. I have been coughing up phlegm that is mostly white/clear with small amounts of a yellowish color and small brown flecks. When I lay down I can hear myself breathing/wheezing and makes it impossible to sleep, not to mention coughing fits making my partner unable to sleep. I have been taking antihistamines before bed and it seems to help calm my cough.
On Saturday (about 3 days ago), I was coughing hard and bringing up some white to clear mucus after I took a syrup that's an expectorant, decongestant, and an antihistamine that my GP prescribed to me. I'm also getting over a sinus infection and just finished taking antibiotics as well. After I finished coughing hard, my throat (near my adam's apple) feels achy and feels weird when I swallow. I feel the weirdness when I'm swallowing the food and the sensation hangs around for 20 minutes or so.
I spend hours everyday over the sink coughing out volumes of white sticky mucus. I sometimes choke on food from the amount of mucus that collects in my vocal cords and am unable to breathe well. Asthma & sinusitis seem the most normal explanation, however, the dr's say the don't find anything that should cause that much mucus. The only time it ever has stopped for a short while is when I was put on prednisone.
I have been coughing up lots of mucous for the last three to four months. After I eat, I cough up mucous until I regurgitate my food. When I don't eat, I cough white foamy mucous. What can I do?
I have been coughing up mucus for almost a year. i am 18 years old and in good health. i don't think it's my diet because i have changed it numerous times since the coughing. and i don't think its the enviroment around me because i have also moved 3 times since the problems have occured. from the moment i wake up till i go to bed i am constantly coughing up mucus, it is so imbrassing. i don't have to eat anything either to start these confulsions. i am really worried.
I have a horrible cough and it produces a very thick white mucus lumps. He gave me a breathing treatment, A 3 in1 shot, nasacort spray, and Ala-Hist. He said that I now have Asthma. Is there anything else that could be done. None of this has had any affect on this crud. Is there something else to do. I think I have something wrong in the lungs or in the sinus. Nothing has helped.
It started with a tickling throat and then developed, so I find it very hard to swallow because it really hurts, and also have trouble talking. Yesterday I started coughing and it has gotten really bad, to the point where I am coughing until I'm gagging. However, the unusual thing is it only seriously affects me in the mornings and at night. During the day it is bearable. Please help!!
I always felt that mucus 'stuck' inside my throat and unable to spit it or swallow it. When I swallow my saliva I can felt the mucus is stay inside my throat. This problem already longs for about one year. What should I do?. This is the only symtoms. Is consumption of fruit especially bananas and oranges and milk can produce more mucus inside our body since these foods are known for their mucus-forming properties is true?
When I avoid alletrgic foods I have no mucus problem. When I have an attac ( musus and coughing that could last for hours ) I take half a teaspoon of Baking Soda in a glas of water and have immediate relief.

Cough has been lingering for about 2 months yesterday , somedays it feels cause a tickle in back of throat and others it feels like congestion in chest. I do cough up little white mucus somtimes both from chest and from sinus. My question is does anyone feel like this could be caused by post nasal drip or allergies (meaning the chest congestion at times) or does any one feel it is just in my chest and it could be from smoking( also had chest xray and breathing test which both came back good).

Now I m advised to take azythromyzine tabs.Im having throat pain too when swallowing but I think its decreasing day by day...but thick white mucus with bubbles in it scares me.Advice pls.No xray or ct is taken.
the sore throat has passed but just about every night now around 8pm i will start coughing for a few minutes until i can hack up a little bit of white mucus. i don't feel ill, my throat or lungs don't hurt, i just have an annoying cough. cough drops and medicine tend to help a bit but it hasn't cured it.
Look up Candida and see if you have the symptoms.
