Coughing yellow balls

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing yellow balls

coughing

I usually have to force them out by coughing but they are greenish-yellow balls of phlegm. My breathing seems normal. I have been smoking marijuana for about a year and a half now.
I quit smoking Feb. 2007, had never coughed or wheezed, the following summer we put in a pool, within six weeks, I was having trouble breathing, with heavy wheezing, and had to cough constantly. The doctor diagnosed me with asthma. Since August, 2007, I have been on Augmentin XR 1,000 with a ten day prednisone treatment, Levaquin with prednisone, 6 months of last year I was on antibiotics with prednisone, and this fall, I have been on the same treatment for 6 weeks running.
I have been sneezing alot lately and tiny white puss like balls have been coming out of my throat. They have an awful odor when you smash them. I know that sounds disgusting, but I am at a loss as to what they are and what causes them.
Thanks for the answer! I am currently on Wellbutrin and will be quitting on Monday with the help of a patch as well. Try #3....hope the third time is the charm. Ha! The pain has stopped. However, I am coughing up really sticky clear "balls" of sputum that have little specks (about the size of a tip of a pen) of yellow or light brown/almost red. Could this be blood? Should I wait for a few days after quitting to see if this goes away before I go in for further evaluation?
I have had clicking coming from my thyroid cartilidge-offside (which is what we call Adam's apple) an ENT said this is normal. As for coughing up the little "balls", those are called tonsil stones or tonsilliths. Quite normal.
This helped right away and the congestion and cough went away. Thus, when the congestion lingered this time (thick yellow mucos when I blowed my nose), I called my family doctor to get a prescription for nasonex. This helped my nose but I then got a persistent tickly cough that was worse at night. Now a month and a half later, the cough and tickles occur all the time. It's mostly dry, but sometimes in the morning it has phlem.
ENT told me I had an ear infection and that that could have led to the coughing. He puts me on antibiotics again to kill the ear infection for 10 days. After that I went back to see him, but I was still coughing. He told me ear infection was gone, but my tonsills were enlarged (which have been happening since I was 12 years old, I am now 28). IWhen my tonsills get enlarged, I sometimes have white hard smelly small balls come out of it ( I know TMI).
i am so glad came across this page my mom is a nurse and for years i tried to explain these stinky balls i was coughing up but she had no idea what i was talking about. I even said thesame thing that chronic phelgm said.the smell is so bad that even if you wash your hands it still stinks. I am not a smoker and neither is my sister who gets them as well.it is nice to know that other people kno wwhat i am talking about! I do however get really bad sinus infections.
fever, pus on tonsils (exudate), tender lymph nodes in front of your neck (anterior cervical lymphadenopathy), and lack of cough (no coughing). If so, treat with antibiotics that are more narrow-spectrum such as penicillin since there's virtually no resistance to penicillin by strep in the community. If less than 3 of 4 of these signs are positive, then wait for your strep test or throat culture to show a bacterial infection before taking antibiotics.
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.
With the methods I will show you, the yellow and green purulence, which we better know as snot, will be removed from your nasal passages. When the infected snot is removed from your head, the cold viruses, bacteria, and perhaps the fungi will not have a comfortable environment to thrive, multiply, and release the poisons which inflame and destroy the otherwise healthy red mucus membranes in your nose and sinuses. Doctors have difficulty treating sinusitis caused by fungi.
Hi, there are a whole bunch of postings under "chronic cough" which seem similar to this. And some good ideas I am going to try I have had a constant cough for 3 plus years and for last year it has been phlegmy like yours. 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.
Have you any other symptoms? Reddened tongue? Coughing up strings of mucous-like material? Itching? Swollen glands?
Just after Christmas 07 my 40mg 2x a day started, then I caught a virus, and was very ill, and it just would not go away, nausea, aches and pains all over, I blamed it all on this virus, never really suspecting the real culprit, yes you know don't you, it was because I had cut down on the oxycontin, and my body was craving it, this went on for 7 weeks, until one day it dawned on me what it was, by this time I had become tired all the time, getting up early and doing nothing, then backwards an
One must do a lot of intense prodctive coughing to keep from having problems. I've had a bunch of times that I wasn't effective enough and had a half dozen pneumonias. These are the most severe crisis conditions. Some people are also psychotic by this point. Others depressed. When I put that methylcobalmin under my tongue my consciousness itself started changing. In one hour the severe abnormal fatigue of 15 years was GONE. The specific pain with that fatigue was GONE.
So the actual tonsil tissue itself (that normally sheds), along with the mucous and saliva at the back of the throat and also (possible) small particles of foodstuffs that cant get out of the tonsils all combined with the natural bacteria in the throat all forms a little ball when it cant be released. These little balls can develop deep inside the tonsil (so foodstuffs may only be a small contributing factor).
My wife complains about the little yellow gum balls that miss the trash can in the bedroom at night. I just heard about this mouth cancer from nic gum thing. I dont have it that I know of just wanted to research it a little. Regardless, these days cancer in blamed on everything from alarm clocks to cell phones. From what I read nic gum is still safer than cigerettes and other nic products.
I am not just talking his eyes, he was yellow from head to toe, even his tongue was yellow. Again he did not progress as most cirrhosis patients do. He stayed very much awake and lucid. Yes, he was still coughing up the blood, and evenually they had to switch to suctioning the blood out, but as he laid there, he wanted everyone to come in so he could talk to them. We spent from roughly 7 pm to 3 am talking to my uncle.
Gosh, candida is coming out of me EVERY day, but the coughing and sneezing persists. I don't even notice a DECREASE in symptoms, but since it is coming out of me I will keep at it. I might just have a ton of candida. It might be that I need to repopulate my gut with good bacteria which I will do after I've gotten rid of more candida. I took a bunch of anti-fungals last night and got a really bad stomach ache, which I think is a good sign that they are working.
I was tired of others covering their nose, turning their heads, coughing, and moving away. Totally embarrasing. You are not alone. You will read that half of all people suffer from this problem. Pls let me know if I have helped you.
Symptoms can include a headache or pressure in the area of the sinuses, a stuffy nose, achy teeth, an odor coming from the nose, postnasal drip, cough, sore throat, laryngitis, lightheadedness, constant low fever, and thick, yellow to green nasal drainage. This inflammation can block sinus drainage and cause increased mucus production. 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.
and in my lower breath path or deep in my throat, I have thickened mucus and gel like tiny balls and hard to get them out. I have tried different things to reduce the mucus secreation. However none of them has been proven effective or without side effect. Lately I started to us SinusWars2. I noticed that my muscus has been getting less and my nostrils are getting clearer. One noticable change is I have much less crust in my middle nostrils where I used to reach to get crust out.
im thinking its from smoking but yet again some comments above say you dont smoke. ive also experienced coughing up balls off yellow stuff. like litreally its a ball. i have NOOooooOOOo idea what that is and some how the doctors dont either... aaahhhh how weird right? the only thing i can think of in my past is being bullied in primary school by my best friends and crying my heart out everyday not wanting to go to school which may have brought the anxiety on. but the clicking...
then something stange happened. I blew out about a cup full of yellow mucus in the shower one morning, followed by a huge rattling cough - it sounded like an explosion. out came a load of black spots and a black glob of something (probably tar from smoking). however i felt so good after this experience i thought i would like another few lines of coke. this was the worst idea as i had as the palps came back but this time with chest pains and cough.
Neither sneezing nor coughing tends to make it worse. Urinating and ejaculation is normal and painless. I can’t find any sorts of trends with this. Sleeping has become very difficult. I also have feelings of emotional distress, anger, and tension build up since I feel so helpless. I'm 20 years old and this pain has pretty much taken over my life.
The urologist's verdict was it might be cremaster muscle (the thin muscle that hangs your balls!) contracting for some reasons. He suggested taking pain killers or to remove the muscle and the nerve suppying the left nut by minor surgery. I didn't want to. Since I now know this is nothing serious (or you can't help it!) I ignore it. I go to gym for run and mild weight lift. I do yoga, without crunching my abdomen much.
I had a really bad Qtip habit that I fear may have caused all of this trouble. When I used to use Qtips I always had a bit of yellow ear wax on the tip. After really getting aggressive with Qtips and using them several times a day I believe the Ph in my ears became unbalanced and now I/we may have some type of yeast infection. For more than a year I have seen no yellow wax. I'm going to ask for the Derm Otic drops and consider the EPA oils.
I've checked a GP a few times and they were useless and didn't say there was a problem. I've even had yellow liquid early during my experience with this tightness coming out of my left ear, i went to hospital and i was told to put cotton to stop the leak. I also got bullied in school about that cotton so i've suffered a great deal. I also keep feeling the need to move the muscles under my ears and push the base of the nosebone i mentioned (which i hear and feel a breaking click).
I was addicted to Nicorette 2mg. for about 2-1/2 years...however, I chewed 24 pieces a day!!! WAY too many. I just wanted to warn you that I have a swallowing disorder now. I was chewing sooooo much, (a lot more than you), that the constant nicotine draining down my throat caused me all sorts of esophagus problems. Just watch yourself, living without being able to eat right really sucks! P.S. I finally got off the gum by using the patch?!?!?!
