Before I was diagnosed with COPD, I had a viral infection, influenza and finally pneumonia. My PFT test came back 56% FEV1 pre and went up 24% after bronchodilator. I am still coughing up yellow phelgm. Is this normal or could it be that I still have some sort of bug in my lungs that I never completely got rid of. I hestitate to call my pulmonologist office if its nothing. I am on advair 250/50 twice daily and before that was just using an albuterol inhaler if I needed it.

I just want to let you all know, that the pain in my side/back is gone. Im finally coughing some of that stuff up, there is a tiny bit of blood in it though. And ive been eating a little bit, and drinking plenty of water. My urine is still dark yellow, and has a smell to it, but i think thats from the meds im on. I have a drs appt this friday anyway to check up on my wellbutrin, so if i still have any of this stuff going on then i will definitely bring it up to the doctor.
I wouldn't worry about not coughing, I'd worry about coughing up junk. If you start to cough up stuff make sure to look at it to see what color it is. As long as its clear your OK. If its green or yellow it could be an infection. I would say as long as your breathing is OK you'll be fine.
But when it's here it's like I'm coughing up nothing and really hard. I coughed so hard tonight I got sick. But if I'm just clearing my throat, I occasionally cough something up, but it's a very light green almost clear. What could be causing the coughing?
i had watery yellow liquid stuff coming out of my left nostril right after i hit my head and it happened as soon as i did it. do you all think mine could be from the brain fluid or something else. It happened right after i hit my head and i have a lump in my head due to hitting it.
I have looked on the internet before under yellow nail and found some stuff that I really did not fully understand, but reading all the various posts really brings it home just how debilitating this YNS can get. I am going to try some for suggested treatments Vit E, yeast etc and see what happens. My best wishes to all of you out there suffering from this horrible affliction.
It all appears to be from just my left nostril, and while most of it is thick, after I blow for a little bit, the thick stuff turns to a very runny, very yellow fluid that feels almost like a bloody nose dripping out of my sinuses. Sometimes, the color is just a normal, milky yellow, but most of the time it is very dark, and often almost orange. This morning, after blowing a little bit, I noticed there was a fair amount of blood in it.
This then eased a little however I still had a very irritable throat and incredible coughing and yellow phlegm, very little sneezing, which has now lasted for about two-and-a-half weeks. My sore throat and coughing have now eased almost two months after the first visit, but I still have stuffy sinuses. However for the last five days I am now having very loose stools/diarrhea. I also think I may be having a loss of appetite and may have had some weight loss.

I still have this lil cough going on. No sore throat, fever and I don't feel sick. I am coughing yellow phlegm smh. My chest feels a lil tight and I been taking my asthma meds like crazy. The back of my throat itches a lil bit, plus my ears feel a lil itchy; this cannot be allergies its dec 2010.. I cannot wait to take my 6wk test and 1 @ 12wks.
It gets quite bad at night and i'm finding it hard to sleep.. Also, coughing REALLY doesn't feel good after surgery in that area >.< It looks like it may be a common 'side effect' but thought i'd ask to see if anyone else has felt this way after surgery? Also, starting yesterday i've had this feeling lower in my chest. Like a tightness/something stuck in there..
could all these things be linked, could i have a hyper allergic reaction to something which triggers of the coughing, hte violent coughing inturn has weakend the pshinter muscle in my chest and produced the hernia? could the acid reflux or the gas given off by the extra acid be now triggering the violent coughing fits? and inturn then damaging my vocal cords?.
I had an upper respiratory infection most of tx, and am still coughing up some yucky yellow stuff.......but what an improvement in the last week. I almost feel back to my old self finally. I try to do some light weight lifting and yoga and stretching to get my muscles back up to speed. I never realized how atrophied my muscle tone got until after tx was done. It was a shock for me to actually realize and feel my muscle weakness.
Now she's not stuffy anymore, her nose is running with clear mucous, it is not green or yellow... she is sneezing alot, especially since our dog has begun to shed, and her right eye is red. She was not this bad on Friday, now all of a sudden (of course ALWAYS on days the Pedi's office is closed) it has gotten worse. She seems to be OK other than the sneezing, watery red eye, and the coughing.
i've had a head cold for a couple days and i've coughed up some really weird stuff. the first time it was the normal yellow phlegm but it had large, white solidish pieces with red specs. a few days later it happened again except they were much smaller. i've never had this happen before do you know what this could be?
First off I'm 19 and overweight. Last week I started having yellow stool. Off and on it has been diarreah. But besides that I have nothing else is really wrong. My stomach doesn't hurt, I have a few cramps when I need to go, I don't feel bloated. I've been coughing and have had a runny nose for a while. Besides all that I feel fine. I'm afraid of malabsorbtion and pancreatic stuff after reading about it online, having bad anxiety this has me worried.
I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
Phase one consists of having this very thick stuff in the back of my throat which is anywhere from a clear, yellow or green substance, sometimes almost rubbery looking. Once done with this phase, then on to phase 2, which is just regular excessive phlemg, & lots of it, for the next hour or two, phase one goes on for about 45 minutes. I can't swallow cause it's so thick.
When I was still sick three weeks later I got a prescription for Keflex. 10 days later I was even sicker, now coughing up a thick oatmeal like yellow and green substance, I can't really call it mucus because it was so thick. I went to the Dr. and he ordered a chest xray, which came out negative for pneumonia, and he gave me Avelox to take for 10 days. I went back to him feeling only a LITTLE bit better, and still coughing (choking) up thick yellowy white stuff.
I'm verry congested all the time.
Spent the last 2 days coughing up globs of thick yellow stuff that I didn't even know was down there. I only wish the doctors didn't spend a month and a half playing around with my inhalers because it SUCKED!! I finally didn't need a nap yesterday for the first time in a month and woke up after 9 hours of sleep, mostly refreshed. It was wonderful, I'm awake and actually have energy! Woot!
I'm still coughing up very pale yellow and clear sputum as opposed to the solid yellow stuff I'd had before. Pale yellow, almost clear is ok, right? A friend of mine said she was coughing up clear mucous for 2-3 months. I can't get another chest x-ray at the moment though, as I've just discovered I'm pregnant - that could explain the lower immunity and fatigue. Thank you so much for the reply!
im 11 weeks and friday night my nose started bleedimg and when I woke up on Saturday my nose was stopped up and it got worse throughout the day. This morning I started up yellow stuff. Does anyone know what this could be?
If he has an infection in the lungs (coughing up yellow or green stuff) that also takes medication to clear it up. Either way he should contact his doctor.
Have had a cough for . a few days. Green/yellow stuff usually comes out when I cough. tylenol cold stops the cough. But this am- when coughing- green mucous but the spit surrounding it was pink. (Sorry to be so graphic) This makes me very nervous- never had that happen before. What do you think it could. be? ( PS not a smoker) Thanks for input.
it feels there is stuff stuck in there but it does not come up with coughing. once in a while i bring up clear stuff and very little bit of it. i did 3 xrays and it came back clear. the doctor listened to my lungs and breathing and said its clear. when i get this is almost feels like my breathing is slightly worse but when i tell the doc he says i sound clear. it feels like its coming from the throat and is affecting my voice slightly too.
Not last weekend but the weekend before my nose got really stuffed up and I began coughing a lot. Basically it felt like a constant drip of mucus down the back of my throat that I had a lot of trouble coughing up. During that week I took a lot of Benadryll Allergy and Mucenex to try and break up the mucus in my head. It worked very well and now I am coughing up very loose stuff that is at least exiting my head until the pollen calms down.
